Reviews

7.5 Little Acorns Day Care Nursery Ltd has a Review Score of 7.5 (7.462)

The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Little Acorns Day Care Nursery Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Acorns Day Care Nursery Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 22 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.962 for Little Acorns Day Care Nursery Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (254 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 264 Ratings = 4.962

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Acorns Day Care Nursery Ltd is based on 22 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 22 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

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

If there is one nursery that go the extra mile, it's Little Acorns, Maesteg. At our time of need, they put themselves forward to help. The care that they put into the children is 110% with the graduation days with cap and gown, day out trips. The help that they have given to my family will never be forgotten and shows dedication above and beyond their remit.

I cannot stress enough how incredible this nursery is. The development my son has made since attending is nothing less than exceptional. The staff are extremely motivated, friendly and very approachable. My son suffers from asthma and the staff are very cooperative regarding this and work together with myself in ensuring his symptoms are under control. An amazing nursery and I am grateful from the bottom of my heart of the care we have all received and how well they have taken care of my son.

My 7-year-old daughter has been going to this nursery for just over a year now, at first she didn't want to go to a nursery because "it was for babies" she said, but after her first week she loved it! She now comes to holiday club too. They went to the cinema the last half term. She can't praise the staff up enough and has now got a very good bond with them. Really can't explain how thankful I am to all the Little Acorns Day Care Nursery team you are fantastic.

My daughter loves attending crèche since joining Little Acorns, she has developed in her speech and every day come home with sometimes new things she's learned. She loves coming to the crèche and we sometimes have a struggle to get her to come home. The girls who work at Little Acorns are all fab and we love each and every one of them.

My daughter has been attending this lovely nursery for a little while now. I love the fact I feel like I am welcomed in to a family. The staff are so friendly and nothing is to much trouble. Their cook is amazing and my daughter thinks she is her second nana, not to mention the fact she can get her to eat almost anything. Amazing nursery amazing team, it is also nice to see that the owner is actively involved within the day to day running and the passion she has for making the nursery the best for the little ones attending exudes her.

All staff care compassionately about my daughter, they show professional affection and take a great interest in her development. The care is excellent as are the facilities which I feel as a deputy headteacher enable (or will) a smooth transition to primary school. The range of food offered is excellent, and all children within the nursery have high expectations set by staff in their conduct manner development and educational opportunities.
