Reviews

10 Leigh Lollipops Nursery has a Review Score of 10 (9.983)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Leigh Lollipops Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Leigh Lollipops Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.983 for Leigh Lollipops Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 Leigh Lollipops Nursery is based on 7 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 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 5.2 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.

The best playgroup/nursery setting in the area - extremely warm, professional, skilled, caring and welcoming staff who go the extra mile to ensure children have a happy and positive learning experience whilst at the playgroup. My daughter is thriving there. The outdoor area is outstanding.

Both of my daughters have attended Leigh Lollipops; I have been a parent since 2013. Lollipops is an inclusive environment which I've always felt is nurturing but still offers an excellent level of gentle discipline to support children as they prepare for school life. The staff are all so experienced and approachable that I've always felt confident leaving my girls in their care. The garden/outside space is a real attribute and it's lovely that you can be involved in their pre-school experience by being parent helper every term. I've watched staff offer tailored support to parents and children acknowledging that every child settles differently. It's a very happy place for children to have fun and learn.

Lollipops has been a fantastic nursery for both my eldest daughter who was there in 2012/13 and my youngest daughter who is there at present. They both gained so much confidence and enjoyed the caring, and happy atmosphere at the nursery. The teachers are great and extremely supportive. I will also be sending my son there when he is older enough.

Prior to my elder child starting at Lollipops, we had terrible problems settling him at another nursery and Lollipops were great at letting him take as long as he needed to settle and supporting me. He thrived in their nursery and made good friends. He loved the variety of activities and all of the staff. My younger child has started now, and again the settling in process has been designed to fit our needs rather than us being made to fit in with the nursery. It is quite a long commute for us to the nursery but I would not have chosen anywhere else for either of my children. It's worth travelling to ensure the best start for them.

The staff at Leigh Lollipops cannot do enough to help the children settle in and treat them all as individuals. My son can be a little hard to handle but the staff have been superb with him. The activities are always different, creative and interactive.
In particular, the outdoor space is great for the children and unless the weather is horrific, they pay outside every day.
This is my second child to attend Leigh Lollipops and I cannot recommend the nursery enough.

My daughter settled so quickly, all the staff are friendly, caring and helpful. She talks fondly of the nursery and is excited to tell me about her morning. The nursery provides a wide range of activities and my daughter has learnt so much whilst having loads of fun.

My second child now goes to Leigh Lollipops and adores going. She is asking to go on the days she doesn't go! The staff are really caring and give excellent feedback. It is a lovely village setting minutes from Reigate. They do lots of great activities with the children, including special cooking and crafts. My daughter is constantly bringing things home in her tray. They do lots of extras with the children. They are working with her to develop her speech and her fine motor skills have really come along since starting there.

Such a wonderful nursery! Has a lovely small, family feel. The staff are very welcoming and caring and the setting is beautiful. I feel that they know my daughter very well. Lots of different activities that keep her busy. Every morning when she wakes up she asks if it's a 'Lollipops Day.' My youngest would quite happily stay too. Can't recommend enough.

My daughter attended Leigh Lollipops Nursery and she loved it there, it was the perfect start for getting her ready for school....she still talks about it now and asks to go back!

It's set in a beautiful area with lots for the children to do inside and out in the spacious garden, every day they have lots of new activities which my daughter loved.

The staff are all very friendly and always went out their way to make my child and I feel welcome within the nursery, it had a family feel to it which I loved and it made it easier for my daughter to settle in.
