Reviews

6.6 Little Rays Nursery Lisburn has a Review Score of 6.6 (6.624)

The Review Score of 6.6 (maximum of 10) for Little Rays Nursery Lisburn is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Rays Nursery Lisburn in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 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 4.958 for Little Rays Nursery Lisburn is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 1.666 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Rays Nursery Lisburn is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 24.8 positive Reviews (124 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 24.8 Target = 0.081 , then divided by 2 = 0.041

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

My child has been here from 6 months and is now ready for primary school. I have never had cause to doubt the care my child has had and although at the beginning I queries many a thing it was always fine. I could not recommend this nursery enough as a safe and loving haven for a child.

I needed to return to work after 6 months of maternity leave after having my first child. Before selecting a nursery, Her dad and I viewed a number of nurseries; but Little Rays for us, stood out from all the rest. We were particularly impressed with the experience from within the nursery, the friendliness of all the staff, and the fun, bright and positive learning atmosphere. Little Rays is welcoming from the moment you step through the door and our daughter loves it.

During our time at the nursery we have benefited from Little Rays using Nursery Pal (a little bit like a Facebook page for her day). We have found this a brilliant way to keep us posted with how her is getting on, and during a lunch break I can log on and view a picture from that day that has been uploaded onto her page. My husband and I love it as it feels like we are not missing out on her learning and development.

This nursery is amazing. The facilities are excellent, the staff are awesome and the activities and rotation of play are faultless.

I cannot rate Little Rays highly enough.
