Reviews

6.3 Little Dragons Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.3 (6.256)

The Review Score of 6.3 (maximum of 10) for Little Dragons Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Dragons Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 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 4.722 for Little Dragons Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (52 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 1.534 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Dragons Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.068 , then divided by 2 = 0.034

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

Little Dragons is a fun and safe environment with staff and management who are passionate about the children in their care. My little girl has been attending for 18 months and loves it. The food is all home cooked which is an added bonus. I receive regular progress reports.

We are really happy with Little Dragons. My daughter loves it here. The staff are excellent and very friendly. My daughter is given extra care when it is needed e.g she once got a nappy rash and needed more changing and cream. Nothing is too much trouble. We love you all and wouldn't choose anywhere else.

My son has been in the baby room for a few months now, he has settled in really well. The nursery have helped him learn to walk and feed himself, he loves all the toys and doesn't always want to come home. I cannot fault the staff, they are always smiling, warm and friendly. I really like the welcoming, happy ambiance of Little Dragons and I am happy to entrust the care of my son to them.

We have had a good experience from the nursery and staff through the two and a half years our daughter has been at the nursery. The staff welcomed our daughter into the nursery and she talks about the staff members all the time.

We are completely happy with Little Dragons Day Nursery we have no worries about the care and learning development of our little girl whist she is there. She enjoys being at nursery very much and settled in well (after the first month). The staff work as a team and the management are good - making sure they talk to you as well as the key person. Oh and the food is lovely and tasty and all homemade. Management team ask for feedback and make changes based on feedback which is reassuring to know parents views are listened to.

My child is new to this nursery, however they have settled immediately. The staff have been very welcoming and my child has thrived since joining. The activities they have shown interest in are built upon and the staff fully encourage their development.
