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 4.798 for Lime Tree Day Nursery Loughborough is calculated as follows: ( (67 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.798

  • 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 4.412 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lime Tree Day Nursery Loughborough 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 17 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 17 Target = 0.412

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

My son has been going to Limetree for over a year now. The staff are always friendly and my son has created great bonds with his key worker in both the baby room and Explorers room. The managers always greet you with a smile on their face and take the time to say hello. The food is great and the menu is varied with all food being cooked on site. When my son first started he had an allergy and this was always well catered for and we never had any issues with contamination. The nursery is always clean and looks bright and inviting. The displays in the rooms are filled with the children’s work and are changed constantly which is lovely to see. I couldn’t say anything more positive than my son's experience here. There is also a fob system to get in the building which is very reassuring.

My son has been going to Lime Tree Day Nursery Loughborough for 2 years now and I can not praise them enough. The nursery is clean, the atmosphere is great and the staff are all really friendly. Nothing is too much of a hassle for them and they listen to any needs required. The variety of food is great, there's always different meals had. The security at the nursery is good, all information is relayed to parents via e-mail which is handy also. Overall really pleased I chose here for my son. Highly recommended.

My girls have thoroughly enjoyed being little limers! They both have learnt so much academically and behavioural. Their confidence, kindness and mannors are reinforced in the nursery and I've never been let down or worried about their safety in the 3+yrs we've attended. Thank you to the Manager and the team.

We've been going 3+ years and it's always a delight to visit. We have to drag our daughter out at the end of the day.
All the staff are very friendly and professional. We would recommend to everybody and we feel that it is clearly by far the best nursery in Loughborough.

Claire Chapman, Manager at Lime Tree Day Nursery Loughborough responded to this review on 06 Feb 2018:

Thank you for your kind review, I will ensure this is shared with the team who work so hard to make every day a positive experience for our families.

Had both my boys at this nursery, 4 days a week since 9 months old.
Very large room and garden as no other nursery in Loughborough. (Do visit as pictures on the website are not good).

Clean Nursery, high hygienic standards.

Efficient management and communication with parents (also by email) and handovers among staff.

The staff know my children's individual needs and are happy and efficient to answer any special request.

The kitchen menu is healthy and efficiently accommodate any special dietary requirements (even the stricter). Online website to see our kid in the nursery.

Nursery staff are relaxed and happy and is reflected in the relaxed happy well behaved children that you see when you go into the rooms.

Optional weekly low-cost Jo Jingles music lesson

Extended opening times, open all year round excellent for working parents with non-family friendly jobs.

Multicultural great for bi-trilingual like mine. High safety.

Standard of care definitely outstanding and has been for nearly 4 years.
Large car park.

Thank you for your lovely feedback, I will ensure all the team see your comments x

Lime Tree Loughborough is a fantastic nursery. Every day we are welcomed by the staff at reception and then the staff in the room. It is nice to be made to feel a part of the nursery family.
My son has been going to Lime Tree Loughborough for just over a year and has loved every day. The staff are amazing.
The rooms are spacious and don’t feel cramped with all the children carrying out various activities. The outdoor spaces are lovely with resources that the children love.
My boy has a food allergy which is catered for and is generally picky but they never fail to cook delicious food that he will eat and ask for more of.
I’m so glad we chose Lime Tree.

Thank you for your kind words, I will share them with the team.

My son has attended Lime Tree Day Nursery Loughborough for the last year and a half and I can honestly say that he willingly goes into the nursery with a smile and leaves with an even bigger one. My son has spent time in 3 of the 4 age group rooms so far, and I really believe that the carers have taken the time to get to know him and build activities around the things he loves. The rooms are spacious and airy and filled with bright displays (created by the children) and age-appropriate toys and books.

Although the outdoor space isn't "green" (this is a Victorian building in a town), there is lots to do and my son loves his time outside! The meals provided each day are cooked fresh on site, and allow the babies/toddlers to try a variety of foods and flavours. The front of house ladies are so welcoming and friendly and always greet my son with a big smile and ask him how his day has been as we leave. I highly recommend Lime Tree Day Nursery Loughborough.
