    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.

    The 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wee Gems - Livingston is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0

My son has attended this nursery for nearly two years and has come on so much in this time. His confidence has grown and his independence, which will benefit him when he is ready for school. He always talks about nursery with enthusiasm and I enjoy looking at his observations to keep up to date with is learning. The staff are all very caring and I know my son feels very comfortable in their care. I think the standard of learning is excellent as my son has developed so much during his time here and the staff always give detailed feedback on what he has been doing that day. Lovely nursery.

My son has been attending the nursery since he was 18 months old. Most days he is happy to go and see all the staff and his friends with the occasional day he is unsettled. I have to say all the staff are very good at reassuring my son and comforting him. Allowing me to head off to work knowing that he is happy and being cared for in the highest standard.

My daughter has been attending Wee Gems since she was 11 months old. The girls keep us informed of her progress. In my opinion, the staff are the key to the success of the nursery.

I hope management continue to support them and maintain this level of service at Wee Gems.

My daughter attended Wee Gems Livingston from 15 mths to age 5, and absolutely loved it. She was devastated to leave and start school. She was, from an early age, a fantastic reader, and the girls in pre school really encouraged her, and allowed her to read stories to the other kids. I never had a single issue with her during the whole time she was in the care of the nursery.
My 2.5 yr old son now attends the nursery too, and has done since he was 13 mths old. He can be quite clingy at drop off time, but the girls always take time to reassure him, and make sure he settles well.

All of the staff are totally approachable, and I consider them as friends, who I trust implicitly.

My son started the nursery at 10 months old and has came on leaps and bounds not just with his development but also socially due to the fantastic care and support he receives at wee gems Livingston! I feel comfortable leaving him their for the day whilst at work, knowing he is happy safe and cared for. It's lovely seeing that not just the baby room staff know him but also other staff in the nursery. It's like a little family for him!

My little girl has only been at this nursery since last summer, but I have to say the ladies have made her feel really welcome in the 1-2s room. At the start she didn't want to leave me she always cries but the girls let her take her panda which made going to nursery a lot easier for her. Now she goes to nursery no problem, is all excited to see me when I come pick her up. She even sings nursery rhymes that's she learnt at nursery and gets all excited when she gets its right. Honestly I can't thank wee gems nursery enough for how well my little girl is getting on now. Her speaking has come on so much, she says please and thank you more which is great. When she is in nursery I know she is safe and getting well looked after. Also I have to say the food must be lovely as my daughter always seems to want to have extra which is a great thing as sometimes she could be picky with what she ate. Hope to continue to used wee gems nursery in the future.

Both my children love Wee Gems Livingston and enjoy going in each day. The learning in pre-school is excellent and I'm always informed about the learning that week which means we can continue it at home. I have seen my youngest come on leaps and bounds since starting Wee Gems Livingston. The staff interaction is brilliant and both my children have great relationships with staff members
