Reviews

9.1 Little Learners Nursery Centre Ltd has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.062)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Little Learners Nursery Centre Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Learners Nursery Centre Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.757 for Little Learners Nursery Centre Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (115 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.757

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.305 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Learners Nursery Centre Ltd is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 16.4 positive Reviews (82 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 16.4 Target = 0.305

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Little Learners are a fantastic nursery who have really supported the development of my son. He is always happy to attend the setting and has lots of fun and some great experiences whilst here. He has great relationships with staff and they are always open and supportive of parents as well.

This is a wonderful nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. My 2 boys have experienced the nursery from the baby room through to pre-school and holiday club and the care they have received at every stage has been fantastic. Great staff, great facilities and a lovely welcoming environment.

Our little girl loves attending Little Learners, she has been going there since she was 9months old, she is now 3yrs old.
Her confidence, speech and social skills have all flourished due to the staff spending time building them up. She is a happy girl who looks forward to preschool and seeing her friends.
The staff at Little Learners are amazing.

Little Learners is the best nursery I have sent my two children, it is very handy. All the staff are fantastic and friendly. All the staff are there if we need to talk to them. My little boy has come on with everything, like learning, walking, reading, talking, running and his sounds.

I would not hesitate in recommending this Nursery to EVERYONE. You must go and have a look around-I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Their staff are so professional, friendly and welcoming and their resources for the children are amazing. I got a good feeling within the first couple of minutes of being there and my children also quickly relaxed and were keen to join the other children in the activities which were going on. This was a sure sign that this was definitely the right place for them to be. As a parent,you want your children to feel safe, relaxed and happy and at Little Learners, mine do. Having visited ALL other nurseries in the area, Little Learners is by far the best! Their walls are filled with children's artwork and are not left stark and bare like some places we visited. They also have some lovely new resources in their outside play areas, such as sandpits, mud kitchens, plant growing areas, water play and chalk drawing area which my children absolutely love. Go and see for yourself.

Staff are friendly and well informed about child's day Our daughter enjoys going to nursery. She does a range of activities and likes the soft play area. We feel the food is always varied and well balanced and always happily received by our little one. The children and staff make the most of the outside space available to them. We are more than happy with the care our daughter gets at nursery even when she was ill they looked after her wonderfully.

Little Learners is a great nursery which offers developmental appropriate stages/classes, baby, toddler, tweenies, pre-school. Children are supported to transition at their pace and individual needs are considered. The nursery provides interactive learning. The areas, café, hairdresser, space and themed days where children can attend in dress up. Letters, numbers/spelling are taught and even French; our 3year old knows basic French- numbers, colours, animals which I think is wonderful. Staff are friendly and warm and parents are included. Children have a personal diary which parents and teachers can use.

I have used the before and after school club on and off for several years now and have always been happy with the service provided. My children are happy and well looked after. The staff are excellent and instill good manners and discipline whilst making it a fun place to be. The only downside is the lack of outdoor space but the children go to the park and the green to play football when the weather is good. They have enjoyed the sports activities at the school in the holidays.

Sarah Laws, Manager at Little Learners Nursery Centre Ltd responded to this review on 04 Apr 2016:

Thank you for your review. As our Before, After-school and Holiday Club is on the first floor of our setting the children do not have direct access to the outside play area, as the nursery children do with the free-flow policy but we have always taken the children to the village green, play park and walks around the village to give the children fresh air.
Since the Summer of 2015 we have linked with one of our local primary schools to use their hall, classroom and all of their outdoor sports fields, playgrounds, MUGA and park during the School Holidays so the children are now outside more than in!!

Both my children have gone to this nursery since they were 6 months old my son is now 9 years old and my daughter is 4 years. It is a brilliant nursery it offers everything I ask for in a childcare setting. The staff are amazing and the environment is welcoming. The soft play is my children's favourite place.
