8.3 Little Hands Little Feet Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.255)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Little Hands Little Feet Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Hands Little Feet Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.889 for Little Hands Little Feet Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 3.366 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Hands Little Feet Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.116

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

Since our daughter started going to Little Hands Little Feet, we've really seen the impact it has had on her - for the better! Her language skills, social skills and all round confidence have all improved! The staff know how to bring the best out in the children and are really attentive. There's a variety of activities every day, which are fun and educational - our daughter knows more about animals, insects and gardening than we do! The staff take a genuine interest in the well-being and development (and safety) of each and every child. Our daughter knows the name of every staff member there and gets on so well with all of them. She looks forward to going in every day to see all her friends. They have a handy online report too which you can check regularly as it shows what your child is up to, what they're eating and even photos which gives you even more reassurance!

My daughter has gone to Little Hands Little Feet since she was 11 months old and is about to turn 6 - she now attends their summer scheme and after school. She loves going and I have never had a problem with getting her in.

The staff are very friendly and highly qualified. They know the children on an individual level so they can address their needs. My daughter has come on amazingly well - she has learnt so much and clearly enjoys it too.

The layout of LHLF is fantastic - the nursery building itself sits way back off the road, which means no noise or air pollution from traffic which you get with most other nurseries. They have a huge front lawn providing a safe and secure area for the children to play in - weather permitting.
The location is superb - right in the heart of BT9 - with some of the Belfast's best primary schools on its doorstep. So, if you're hoping your child attends one of the primary schools in the area - LHLF is the ideal stepping stone!
Can't recommend enough!

Amazing nursery and staff. My little one is absolutely thriving and really thriving with all the activities. The facilities inside and out are great and I love that they spend time outside whenever possible including trips out.
