Reviews

8.7 Little G's Pre-school has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.745)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Little G's Pre-school 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little G's Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.87 for Little G's Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (94 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 3.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little G's Pre-school is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.375

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

My little girl has been attending since she was 10 months old, she is now 3 and loves the nursery. She is like one of the family there which is what attracted to me to the nursery and this atmosphere was felt from the minute we entered the nursery. They have fantastic staff and you can ask them anything and they are happy to answer any questions. With the expansion of the nursery, this has made a fantastic nursery off the scale.

You can see how much your little one learns on the online journal and it's great to get updates and pictures of what they have been up to and personally I notice how much my little girl has grown and developed so well and this is down to her time at the nursery. The staff know each child so well it makes it easy to leave knowing they are in safe hands. I would recommend this nursery to anyone my little boy is due to start in Jan 18 and I know he will have an amazing adventure and fun and learn so much. The nursery has great facilities to keep the little ones busy.

Fabulous nursery with dedicated staff team and great management. Any events, changes or issues are communicated clearly and as soon as possible. I particularly like that their use of technology systems allows you to see snapshots of your child's nursery activity and how they are progressing with educational and emotional milestones. I'd highly recommend this nursery to my friends and family when they are looking for childcare.

My first child has been going since he was 9 months old and absolutely loves it. I have recently (Sept 2017) enrolled my second child and he has settled in perfectly. I find every aspect of the nursery fantastic but my favourite part is that I feel like I am leaving my children with family because that is how they are treated. I would highly recommend Little G's as I have the utmost confidence in what they do.

Pete Gronback, Director at Little G's Pre-school responded to this review on 29 Nov 2017:

Thank you for your review Lindsey...your littlies are a pleasure to have here :)

My son started Little G's in October, he has come on leaps and bounds in such a short time. I am absolutely over the moon with his progress since being here and also feel so at ease with the staff. I call every morning to ensure he has settled okay and every time they answer they completely understand and put my mind to rest. Any advice or questions I have had, have been answered honestly and without judgement even when I was simply looking into the nursery the director responded in a timely manor and in great detail. Nothing has ever been to much trouble for them.
I get photo updates and lots of feed back which reassures me that my son is making progress and has settled in well, I'm also seeing differences at home.
I couldn't recommend Little G's enough! I'm so pleased with my decision to send my son here, there is a brilliant family atmosphere!
My son is well and truly one of the "Little's".

Little G's is a small nursery that offers friendly and professional staff. My daughter loves nursery, she has come on leaps & bounds, she has learnt so much. The staff are caring, have excellent communication between each other, approachable and offer a warm, fun environment for my little girl to learn and get as much as possible out of her time at nursery. I have recommended many friends to Little G's because of the above. I know my child is safe and well looked after, which in turn puts my mind at rest as a busy mum. The nursery is very clean, well looked after and maintained. Little G's is continually trying to improve the nursery for the better which shows month by month. Thank you, Little G's.

My daughter absolutely loves the nursery and staff, especially her key worker who she wants to show everything to when she's at home and asks to see her at weekends. There are lots of activities for them to do. The outside also has lots of activities however could be slightly bigger especially for older kids. It feels like a very homely environment for the kids. The management are very friendly and take on board any suggestions you make. They also have an online journal so we can see updates of what our little ones have done throughout the day.

We are extremely pleased with the nursery and the staff is really good & friendly. The Managers have been very helpful and accommodating. It is very cosy and gives a personalised feeling with the staff being ever so warm and welcoming. The nursery does very well on general cleanliness and hygiene. The activities for children are also well organized based on age and help in overall child development. The web application Tapestry is awesome and regular updates from the staff with pictures were superb with also the option for parents to add their comments and details of activities at home. All in all a perfect place for your child to be in a home away from home. It is a shame that we have to move out of Chorley and cant send our daughter to Little G's anymore. I believe she will miss the environment and the staff. Thank you all.

When we looked around several nurseries in September we knew this was the one for us, the staff were lovely and genuinely interested in my little boy from the first visit. Before starting at Little G's, my 17 month old had only occasionally been left with his grandparents, so I was very apprehensive about leaving him. The staff have been brilliant at helping him settle in, were lovely when I phoned them to check how he was, and instantly picked up on what he enjoys. The nursery uses Tapestry, which is an online journal to record children's progress; it is great to see the photos of him having fun! When I collect him at the end of the day, he is happily absorbed in an activity, playing with or reading a book quietly in one of the comfy little chairs- it is always reassuring to see him content, and his confidence is growing each week.
