Little Pebbles Nursery Burnt Oak

Sangam Community Centre, 210 Burnt Oak Broadway, Edgware HA8 0AP

At Little Pebbles Nursery providing a safe and secure environment for all children and staff is paramount to their policies. This nursery environment ensures your child grows and develops to their full potential. Whether inside or outside the building all the play areas are supervised and staff regularly inspect equipment, doors, locks and fences to ensure security and provide peace of mind.

Little Pebbles is based in the heart of the community within the Sangam centre building. The Nursery and garden provide opportunity for a diverse range of activities for the children. The children are encouraged to play outside and investigate the environment on a daily basis.

The aim is to allow children to feel a sense of security and belonging when they are away from their parents/cares; carers feel that this is the key to happy children. Professionals strive to ensure that all children feel happy, relaxed and safe, allowing them than to feel confident in working with them and start developing strong relationship with the adults caring for them and with the other children in their group.

Learning plans, indoor and outdoor activities provide appropriate learning whilst keeping it stimulating at the same time. All children are encouraged to take part in all activities

Children are fuelled with the correct food, fresh air, exercise, play and rest throughout the day, all contributing highly positively to their emotional, physical and educational development. Carers observe each child to a plan around a child’s interest, and then step it up just that little to extend learning.

Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Little Pebbles Nursery Burnt Oak 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 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Pebbles Nursery Burnt Oak in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 Pebbles Nursery Burnt Oak is calculated as follows: ( (229 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 300 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 4.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Pebbles Nursery Burnt Oak is based on 7 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.583

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

Both my sons enjoy coming to the nursery and always have a smile on their face when they are picked up when their day is over. They can't wait to tell me what they have done, I think it shows that they are having a good time and I can see an improvement in their speech and behaviour.

The staff at Little Pebbles have encouraged and helped our son to settle quickly at nursery. He is now happy to attend and talks confidently and happily about what he has been doing at nursery.
We get feedback on how well he has slept, what he has eaten and how he has been throughout the day.
