Reviews

9.4 Little Stars Nursery has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.421)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Little Stars 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Stars Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 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 4.671 for Little Stars Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 70 Ratings = 4.671

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Stars Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 2.2 positive Reviews (11 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 2.2 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.

My daughter has been going to Little Stars Nursery for almost a year now. All the staff are very friendly, caring, approachable and welcoming both to the children and the parents. There is a real family feel to the place. My daughter loves going there and develops emotionally and socially week by week. I have total trust in all the staff and believe that they go an extra mile to make children happy and enthusiastic about everything that they do. I am extremely happy with my choice of Little Stars Nursery for my daughter!

Thank you Ania for lovely review :)

Little Stars is a great nursery. They have done everything they can to make my son feel settled and happy. They are always finding new ways to entertain and keep the children happy. With it being small, it makes the children feel safe and secure and it's like a little family. It's a great place for the children to spend time and grow. All the workers are so kind and friendly, I know they do the best to make my little one feel happy.

Thank you for lovely review Louisette. It's a pleasure to look after your child.

Little Stars is a small, very well organised nursery in Stoke Newington. Our 2-year-old son really likes all the caretakers. The food plan is really good and the nursery arranges many nice activities in addition to the standard childcare. I would thoroughly recommend Little Stars to any parent requiring full day child care for their child.

My son currently attends Little Stars nursery, we both absolutely love this nursery. I moved to the area this year, spent months researching/visiting numerous nurseries until we came across Little Stars. From the initial visit, we were left feeling informed, welcomed, excited and comfortable to say the least! I knew this was the nursery for my son and felt very at ease that he would enjoy, be very well looked after, nurtured and develop. The staff are amazing, welcoming, informative and show total commitment to every child. My son is seen as an individual, staff show such care and attention to him and other children.The nursery provides a Communication Diary which is updated daily to inform parents of the child's day, it can be used for parents to add notes if necessary. Great partnership working focused on the child!I especially like that the nursery is small as every child has total attention, the staff can focus and nurture each individual. I would definitely recommend this nursery!

Pleasant little nursery, with very personal approach. We feel our child is appreciated and much cared for. The team is enthusiastic and do a lot of different creative activities with the children. The children go outside on a daily basis, either into the small garden or frequently to local parks, playgrounds, library and shops. The menu is varied, healthy, and open to suggestions from parents.
