Reviews

7.8 Little Feet Nursery has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.792)

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Little Feet 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Feet Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.711 for Little Feet Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (165 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.711

  • 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 3.081 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Feet Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.081

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

My daughter has been going since she was 6 months old and settled immediately. From her first taster session to being there several times a week we have never had any tears. The staff are amazing especially her key worker, who she took to straight away. All the ladies are brilliant with the babies and the Nursery Manager is a super star too, really helpful and flexible when we had had to change things around. Really couldn't recommend the nursery enough to anyone who is currently looking for one. We knew from the moment we went to see the nursery we didn't need to see any others, it was our first choice. Love Tapestry that they use, so you get daily updates on your child.

My daughter has attended Little Feet since she was 8 months old and I am enrolling my son to join them next year also. They have been fantastic, the staff are all lovely and friendly, since my daughter has been in the pre-school class I have noticed a huge difference in her knowledge with number work and her drawing has also come on a lot. Little Feet have always tried to be as flexible as possible when needed.
They do some great things with the children such as the Woodland Group once a week, trips to the park and day trips. Fantastic team!

My little boy has attended Little Feet since I returned to work when he was about 11 months old and is now 4. From the beginning, I felt comfortable leaving my son in the care of Little Feet which can be hard for a first time mum leaving your little one. The staff are friendly and approachable. My little boy has come on leaps and bounds in the last few months and I know that Little Feet have helped his development and confidence. When the time comes I will be sending our newest edition to the family to Little Feet also.

My two children (ages 2 1/2 and 18 months) attend Little Feet and I can't praise the nursery highly enough.

My girls love their time at nursery; They look forward to their sessions and sometimes I actually struggle to get them to leave when it's home time!!! For me that says it all.

When choosing a nursery I looked around several others in the area but there was just something special about Little Feet. I've always felt completely comfortable leaving the girls there; the care they receive is outstanding.

Little Feet have been so accommodating of my daughters dietary requirements, routine and our own work schedules. Nothing seems too much trouble.

The girls days are always varied with lots of different actives. I LOVE Tapestry ( a sort of online diary updating the parent(s) about what thier child has been doing, with pictures, videos and written assessments) and seeing all the developments they have made with learning and relationships etc.

My little boy has been at the nursery for 5 weeks now, he's settled really well. The staff are all lovely. I've been really impressed with the daily communication regarding food/activities via the notebook and particularly with the Tapestry system where I can see my little boy enjoying himself and progressing with his activities via photos/video.

We decided to send of our sons to Little Feet nursery because of the structure to their day and calming manner in which they look after the children.
Our eldest son was more than prepared when it came time for him to start school and I am happy to say our youngest seems to be in the same position even though he is one of the youngest in the academic year.

Both my children are very happy at little feet and love the outdoor play and woodland walks.
The staff are very friendly, approachable and build up a good bond with the children.
There are lots of activities for them to do indoors and outdoors.
I really like the online journal and receiving updates and emails about what my children are up to and learning.

Little Feet offer an whole round package and my daughter can't wait to get there each session so to me that says everything. She has developed well during her time and built up some really good relationships with other children and staff alike. It's always nice to see the Tapestry assessment's and it gives me great confidence that the activities or both educational and fun.

Fantastic Nursery. All staff are helpful and approachable. Very accommodating for my little boys needs (dietary requirements) and as a family (changing work patterns)
My son enjoys going to nursery and is developing in all areas.
Excellent communication between Nursery and home. We enjoy looking at tapestry, seeing what he has been doing at nursery. Each child had there own communication book which is filled in at the end of each day, a lot of nurseries we looked round don't do this.

Superb nursery. Our child is so happy here. Staff are so kind and caring. They teach so well. Our child's days are varied and very interesting. I would recommend this nursery. Our child always loves going especially on the day when it's forest school. The muddier she gets the better the day!!

My 11 month old son started in the baby room when he was just 6 months old. The interest in each child that the staff give is great. I was completely confident in leaving my son right from the start and the level of care he receives has remained high over the months. He does a range of activities including painting and playing in various touchy-feely things (like strawberry mousse!). The class rooms are always clean and the equipment and fittings are well maintained. My only vaguely negative point is that my son doesn't eat meat and a lot of the the vege alternative lunches use pre-prepared adult food (like vegetable fingers and spaghetti hoops). That said I think the usual meals are cooked fresh by the in house cook and smell lovely! Overall I'm really happy with the nursery.

My daughter has been attending Little Feet for nearly 2 years now, and I have been extremely satisfied with the care and education provided. I have seen my daughter developing in leaps and bounds, and my once shy little girl is growing into a confident and bright little spark. The learning environment ensures the children have access to a wide range of experiences, with a comfortable and homely feel. The practitioners are always professional and I leave my daughter every time knowing she is in safe hands. After visiting several other nurseries in the area, there was just something that felt right about Little Feet. The manager is always on hand should you need advice, from parenting to funding and toddler tantrums!! The practitioners take the time to listen, taking on board my daughters needs and enhancing her learning with engaging activities .... Including hot chocolate in the Forest School! Finding a nursery for your little ones is a big decision, and Little Feet made the task a lot easier!

The staff and care are excellent for my two children - one is 9 months and the other is 2 and a half. The use of the Tapestry app for monitoring the kids' development is great and a good two way communication tool too. The best thing I have found is the flexibility too - they really will do anything to accommodate your needs, I.e. Extra sessions at short notice if staff are available. This is not the case at any other nursery my kids have attended. The food choice and quality is great too. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone!

I love the experience my son gets at Little Feet. Even though he only attends for one day a week I feel that all of the staff know him really well. He had multiple food allergies at the start (practically vegan) but I always felt he was fed really well.

The nursery provides a good all round program to develop our child ready for school. They have a varied program and make the whole experience very enjoyable for our child. They use the web reporting tool very well and update the system on a regular basis showing how our child is developing.

We were recommended to Little Feet Nursery by a friend who has 2 children already attending. They had many positive things to say about the nursery and in turn we feel the same way. Immediately, the staff were friendly and helpful. It is obvious that a lot of care and attention goes in to each individual attending the nursery. As a couple we have working hours which regularly change at short notice, the nursery is very accommodating to our needs and allows us to be more flexible with our drop off and pick up times when needed. I highly recommend attending one of the nurseries events too. We attended the Summer Fete this year which allowed us to catch up with a lot of the staff and look around the nursery, including a brand new room. Fills you with confidence that your child is being well looked after.

Little Feet Nursery offer the complete package, exciting activities, all round learning, highly trained staff and a lovely friendly atmosphere. Lots of different activities daily such as baking, painting, craft and the Woodland group which was always one of her favourites!
Daily home cooked food was loved by my Grand daughter too.
I would recommend Little Feet to anyone!!
