The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Little Bear's on Seagry Road is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Bear's on Seagry Road in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 12 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 4.615 for Little Bear's on Seagry Road is calculated as follows: ( (106 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.615

  • 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 4.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Bear's on Seagry Road is based on 12 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 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.625

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

Baby, Mum, and Dad couldn't be happier. We couldn't ask for our son to be cared for any better than he is now. A number of the staff are mature, with children of their own, which fills us with confidence.
Would recommend this nursery to the world!

My daughter has been at Little Bear's since she was one years old, she is now four years old. When I drop off my daughter in the morning there is no doubt in my mind that she will be treated well. The staff are great!

Extremely happy with all the staff at the Nursery. My daughter has a very rare health condition. As such it meant that I had to ask the Nursery to make certain allowances for her and be considerate of her needs. They went over and above what was asked and expected of them. They treated my daughter with great care and compassion. Management were fabulous. The rest of the Nursery staff were extremely friendly and attentive. I haven't got a bad word to say about any one. Little Bear's gave my daughter a chance where other Nurseries within the same area were reluctant to take her on. Would definitely recommend to other parents.

Three years ago we chose this nursery because of its bright, spacious rooms with a great large garden and friendly staff. It is a private nursery which helped a lot with our working hours, also it was open during holidays and they were very flexible with our requests. Walking distance from our home which was a bonus.

We made the right choice because our son is hard of hearing and we are deaf. The key-workers allocated in each room made the effort with our son from the age of 1 till 4, the communication and access was there. We had a communication book for the staff to write down information for each day he attended which was very useful for all of us and we felt comfortable with this arrangement.

It is our son's last day today- he has been very happy at Little Bear's for 3 years and he enjoyed being with his peers and staff 3/4 days a week and he will miss it there when he starts school.

Really happy with our choice of nursery. Our son has settled in so quickly and really enjoys his day.

What really made this nursery stand out from others we visited is the staff; they are always warm and welcoming and really do treat the children with kindness and respect. The manager is lovely and knows the children well. She's always been on hand to answer any questions we've had.

Our 3rd and youngest son attends Little Bear's and accordingly, we have had a number of years experience of other nurseries. Little Bears compares very favourably and appears to be a very well run and well-organised nursery and our son (just turned 2) is very happy there. His individual key workers have been very attentive since his arrival as a baby and the variety of activities he takes part in every day are helping him develop quickly. The wide variety of food our son has experienced is also a big plus point. The management are also very flexible when work commitments dictate we need to put him into nursery for an extra day.
In short, we would have no hesitation in recommending Little Bear's to any parent in the area looking for a nursery.

An excellent place for my one-year-old. All the staff are really friendly and welcoming and my son loves his care givers and is learning a lot at nursery. One of the main reasons I send my son there is because of how good the staff are with him.

As first-time parents, we found the prospect of choosing a nursery for our son really daunting but definitely think we've made the right choice with Little Bears. Our son has settled really well and has made a great connection with his key workers and other staff at the nursery. He's content and happy to go - often doesn't want to leave. It's really lovely to be able to leave him in a setting that we know he's totally happy in. The nursery is really warm and friendly and the staff clearly seem to love doing their job.
Our son comes home learning new words every day and is really gaining confidence which I feel is a credit to the nursery.

My son has been going to this nursery for just over a year now and he has settled in very quickly. The one he attends is the nursery based at Seagry Road. It's a lovely nursery, the facilities are lovely and the garden is fantastic, with lots for my son to do. The main aspect for me are the staff, all of whom are extremely friendly, calm, reliable and trustworthy. The carer to parent communications is also really good. I would not send my son elsewhere.
