Reviews

9.8 Little Hollies Pre-School has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.765)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Little Hollies Pre-School 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 63 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Hollies Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 26 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 4.765 for Little Hollies Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (589 Excellents x 5) + (131 Goods x 4) + (17 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 740 Ratings = 4.765

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Hollies Pre-School is based on 26 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 26 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target Reached = 1

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

Cannot fault the place. All of my 3 children started out there, the last one spent two years there.

It took her a while to settle in, she hadn't really left me so we both found it hard but knowing how lovely the staff are there, I knew that she would be fine.

We were both sad when she had to leave this year, she still talks about her 'little school' and how she wants to go back.

Little hollies pre-school was a warm, welcoming place for my little boy to attend. His confidence grew immensely over the 18 months he attended. All of the staff were very approachable and easy to talk to.
Targets and progress of children were talked about in regular meetings, so parents are kept fully up to date with children's development.

My son went to Little Hollies for more than 3 years and his experience and our experience as parents was excellent! He has autism and if it wasn't for the staff at Little Hollies my son would not progress to the little boy he is now, they took the time to support him doing extra work with him to help with his speech, social skills, behaviour to help him with day to day situations which has helped him and he still uses them now on a day to day basis. They also help us as parents. I would highly recommend Little Hollies and will be sending my youngest son there. My son always loved going to nursery. The staff are so supportive, friendly and approachable and I would like to say a massive thank you to them all!

My two children absolutely adore Little Hollies. The staff are outstanding, lovely ladies and always happy to help and are very easy to communicate with. My boys come home happy every day, telling me what they have done and which staff played with them or helped them. We are really pleased we chose Little Hollies as the best educational start for our boys.

My daughter has had a fantastic year at Little Hollies pre-school. Right from the start all of the staff worked hard to help my daughter settle in. She had a wobble or two in the early days and they know exactly how to help her and she now loves her days with them. The communication is great and everyone is very friendly making Little Hollies a wonderful place.

I absolutely cannot recommend Little Hollies highly enough. All four of our children have attended this preschool.
The overall standard they provide is beyond fantastic. The management and staff, with the learning and care they give to the children, is exceptional and they involve and update parents at all times. Five gold stars to all involved in the running of this fabulous preschool.

What a wonderful little nursery - I can't praise it more. It has brought my little girl out of herself and she's now a confident child who can talk to adults and join in playing with other children. The teachers at nursery have been wonderful, they are all so caring and treat the children like their own. Teaching them to respect and have fun with one another as well as to have confidence in their own abilities as a little person. So grateful to all of the staff who've made my daughters time here so special - I know it'll be looked back on with the fondest of memories.

Whilst we are coming to the end of the school year our granddaughter has gone from being a shy, almost nonverbal child to a confident, chatty little girl who is most definitely school ready. Enthusiastic, patience in abundance, imaginative and caring are just a few of the words to describe all the staff without exception! I cannot praise this pre school enough!

I visited three nurseries before finding Little Hollies and Little Hollies was the furthest away from our house. My daughter had a stay and play session and she was so excited and didn't want to leave. I absolutely loved all the different activities they had in each area of the room for the children and they had far more activities going on at once than the previous nurseries so I knew my daughter wouldn't be bored. My daughter loves getting her hands dirty and they had an indoor mud, sand play, water station, dress up, number block station, story area, paint area, baking and lots more. Every day these activities are changed so I know my daughter is always experiencing and learning new things.
The staff are really friendly and lovely and I felt relaxed instantly and knew my daughter would settle well and feel at home and be taken care of.

My daughter, aged 2, settled straight into Little Hollies full time, 4 days a week, brilliantly.
The staff are fantastic, very flexible and personal in ensuring your child is given the individual care and attention they need to feel safe, secure and happy.
I think it is the long standing and experienced staff that makes Little Hollies stand out from other nurseries.
I based my decision to send her to Little Hollies after hearing so many other mums rave about how great it is, and I've never been disappointed.
My daughter has come on amazingly since attending.

Little Hollies has been the setting now for two out of our four sons, that has helped them in their social and personal development. The staff take the time to treat every child as individuals and matching up their requirements.
One of our sons loves coming to Little Hollies and always asks for his group worker, she has helped him achieve his personal targets set in September and looking to prepare him for starting nursery.
Our fourth son is already on the waiting list for September.

All the staff show consistency every day, in making me child feel very welcomed, they communicate on how my child is progressing and areas that need improvement are spoken about frequently. Which as a parent is very important to know.
My child has never said he doesn't want to attend, which is the best review I can give.

Everyone is very friendly and approachable and I have been especially happy with how my current child who attends has fit in as he has special needs.
The staff inform me on his achievements and the activities he has been doing.
They always attend his meeting and I'm really pleased that we chose this nursery for him.

Little Hollies is a fantastic playschool, both of my children have attended this setting and my third will be starting next year too. All of the staff are simply amazing and the children love them. They are so informative with the parents and develop relationships with both child and parent. It's been amazing to see how my two little ones have developed and gained confidence and skills in so many areas which have helped transition to school. Well done Little Hollies, I can't recommend them highly enough. Fantastic nursery.

My son has had a great time at Little Hollies. He has been supported greatly with his stammer and speech problems. He has made lots of friends and has become very independent and confident because of their routine and organisation and support.
Their facilities could do with an update and new toys but other than that, the nursery is great.

This is the third year in a row that my children have attended this amazing pre-school. Next year all mine will be in school and I'm really sad that I won't be able to experience it for myself anymore let alone for my little one. She absolutely adores her key worker who is the perfect balance of professional, humorous and caring. The trips are well organised and currently we are Christmas crafting and making biscuits. 10/10. 11 if I could. I've never experienced a better pre-school.

This was the first trip my son, 2, has been on with pre-school. The whole experience was excellent - from the communication while organising to the punctuality of the transport. Our visit to Santa was magical and we both loved it. I feel blessed to have a pre-school that thinks about the parents and children and helped me to have those precious moments with my little man.

Our daughter started at Little Hollies Pre-School in Sept 16. We have already noticed such improvement in her development. The staff at Little Hollies Pre-School have made us all feel very at ease about the transition into a nursery setting making sure we are made aware of any updates or concerns we have. Always very friendly, lots of different educational activities for the children to do. All around a great environment.

Little Hollies is a five star pre-school. Our two daughters have had such a happy experience there and we are so grateful that their pre-shcool learning journey has been so positive. the staff are what makes Little Hollies unique - they know each child by name and genuinely care about them.
It is also obvious that they know the children 'inside and out' - understanding their personalities, likes and dislikes, interests etc. They are also 'on the ball' with the learning side of things - knowing exactly where the children are and how to move them on. We are so lucky to have chosen Little Hollies and wish them continued success.

My review is on how fantastic Little Hollies is when they organise day trips. This year we went to Plantasia and it was brilliant. The team at Little Hollies were very organised, polite to parents and most importantly they made sure the children had an excellent time. My daughter loved the whole day and wants to go back. Thank you Little Hollies for a lovely day.

Little Hollies arranged an end of year trip to Plantasia. It was very well organised from the coach travel to the activities at Plantasia. The staff at Little Hollies are always very friendly and helpful. They have lots of enthusiasm and the children always have lots of fun. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the day out! Well done ladies!

We went on a nursery trip. The trip was great, very age appropriate. Little Hollies staff were great especially the Manager who led the trip. There was plenty to do on the trip and the children all had a lovely time, despite the weather. The trip was good value for money and well organised.

I have found Little Hollies to be a brilliant pre-school, the staff are fantastic at what they do and so friendly and welcoming. After an early struggle with separation, both of our girls have settled really well and always look forward to going in. There is always plenty of things for them to do whether indoors our outside. They seem to have especially enjoyed creative activities, from colouring and painting to model making and play-do.
We have also had a great relationship with our girls key-person. It had been reassuring to see the progress and targets they have made in the several reviews we have been to. We will all miss Little Hollies when we can no longer go.

Little Hollies has provided a wonderful, nurturing environment for our two daughters. The setting and all it's staff have given them a great start and foundation for their educational future. Both children seemed to struggle to settle initially (having only spent time with family before) but the key workers, along with all other adults, provided great support for their needs and understanding. In no time at all, the children were settled and enjoying every experience at Little Hollies. We think it is a 5 star setting.

My child absolutely loves his time at Little Hollies, it is a treat to bring him. His confidence has really grown since coming. The staff are always so friendly and there are always lots of new activities for him. They are encouraged to have 'listening ears, kind hands', golden rules that we now use at home.

Little Hollies is fantastic and should be proud of it's excellent reputation. The induction process was thorough and my child settled quickly. The staff are knowledgeable and confident in the next steps for child. Moreover, they are warm, friendly and genuine which makes me feel at ease when my child is in their care.
I would highly recommend this setting to my own friends and family, my child is making good progress in a warm, nurturing environment.

We have been using Little Hollies since April 2014 and my second child is currently in twice a week. I would happily recommend Hollies to friends and family. The staff at Hollies genuinely care about our children, their well being and development.
I have never once been worried about leaving my children in their care. It is a happy and caring environment that felt welcoming from day one. A special mention to my boys key-worker, a fantastic key-worker who looks after the parents (me!!) as well as the children.

This is the second child who has attended Little Hollies and I couldn't speak more highly of them. Both of my children have thoroughly enjoyed their time here. They enjoy their time here having fun and making friends but more importantly they have learnt so much along the way. The staff are lovely and keep you well informed of how your child is progressing. Its a shame they (the children) can only stay for two years as they love it here so much. Thank you so much Little Hollies.

As a retired teacher of "Early Years" for 25 years. I have nothing but praise for the expertise and professionalism of all the staff at "Little Hollies". Both my granddaughters have attended and are attending. The staff are kind and caring and all the children settle well and are happy to attend. The staff have high expectations and meet the needs of the children in all the areas of learning. Well done "Little Hollies" long may you continues.

Little Hollies and the staff are very good. My son is very shy but the staff really looks after him. I can worry less that he will be settled and he will be looked after. It is very stress free feeling for a mother. I would always recommend this nursery to my family and friends.

My daughter has been at Little Hollies for 4 months now and really enjoys it. She will always tell me what she has done during the day. She will tell me all the different activities she has done. I find the activities well suited to all her developmental needs. The staff are always very friendly and polite and my daughter speaks highly of them all, especially the lady that always plays shopkeepers with her. In the short time we have been there my experience has been fantastic and I would highly recommend Little Hollies to anybody.

My daughter found me leaving her hard to begin with but all the staff were supportive to both her and me, especially her key worker. She quickly settled in and made a close bond with her keyworker. The resources and outdoor area are very good and the level of contact with parents/carers is excellent. We have recently been invited in to do Christmas crafts with our children. The staff always look like they are having fun with the children and are always very welcoming. I have used Little Hollies for all three of my children and I couldn't recommend it more.

Little Hollies is a fantastic setting offering very high quality childcare. As the mother of a very sensitive child I was nervous about my daughter starting pre school, however all the staff at Little Hollies could not have been more supportive and helpful. She settled in quickly and absolutely loves her time there. Every day is filled with new and exciting activities and experiences for her. I am so pleased I chose Little Hollies for my child, I have already recommended it to many friends and family who are looking for good quality childcare. Excellent!

From day one of my daughters time at Little Hollies i have been very happy. She is excited to go and even talks about her friends and teachers when at home. She has learnt so much which has made her a confident and happy child, she has a great relationship with her keyworker who I adore. All I ask for from a nursery setting is to have a happy child and I certainly have that thanks to the care of the Little Hollies team.

Both of my children have attended Little Hollies. My daughter had a fantastic experience and she still talks about her time there now, 3 years on. My son now attends and has made progress already. He loves the staff and the experiences he receives. I have always found the staff caring and vigilant towards the children too. Little Hollies has been recommended to my friends and family already and I would do again. I didn't even consider sending my second child anywhere else.

My experience with Little Hollies over the last ten years has been overwhelming. The staff are very friendly, approachable, helpful. Children in my care have gained so much in their setting. Planned themes gain good confidence, independence, social skills, making new friends, which will give each child skills to interact and move onto the school with good social skills.

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2013

Description:

Hi there,

My name is Katie and I’ve been working at Little Hollies for four years. I first started as an Early Years Practitioner before becoming Third in Charge, and have recently just taken on the role of Deputy Manager.

I qualified in 1993 and I have seen lots of changes in this profession over the years, but some things for me have stayed the same such as guaranteeing any child within my care has the best possible start in life by feeling safe, secure and well-cared for. I love creating experiences for children which are challenging and fun, and providing opportunities which they may not have access to elsewhere.

I enjoy nurturing children to become more independent and confident, and also preparing them for their next stage in education. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see children progress and the smiles on their faces when they achieve something.

Please feel free to visit our warm, friendly and welcoming pre-school. We would love to meet you and your family.
