Overview

The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Little Stars Daycare is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Stars Daycare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no positive reviews in the last 12 months)

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.958 for Little Stars Daycare is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Stars Daycare is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 3.8 positive Reviews (19 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 3.8 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

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

7.5 Little Stars Daycare has a Review Score of 7.5 (7.458)

This is a fantastic nursery. My little boy settled in more or less straight away and thoroughly enjoys going. The staff are lovely and very welcoming and the variety of snacks and dinners are exceptional. I would highly recommend this nursery.

I cannot thank little stars enough for the amazing care they provide for my little boy! Being an emotional wreck dropping him off for the first time at 10 months old, the staff were amazing and I felt reassured from the very start. He has come on so much at little stars - doing lots of creative activities and socialising in a clean, happy and fun environment! Excellent, supportive and highly recommended nursery!

Extremely happy with the care and support they give all the children.
In the short amount of time my grandchild has been there you can see how confident he has become and he is always happy to return. I am very pleased with the staff and how safe and secure this nursery is. I would definitely be happy with sending my other grandchildren here.

My son absolutely loves going here and even though I still find it difficult to leave him the girls put my mind at rest. I know he is cared for brilliantly and they have the time to help him with his development and social skills. As with any child, they go through funny stages and Little Stars work with parents to ensure the same approach is taken at home and in their care. It is very important to me that my son has the best care in my absence and Little Stars ticks all the boxes!!!

Very pleased with Little Stars. They invited me and my son in for a tour before he started. They made us feel welcome and supported us building up to my son staying long days. This was a hard transition for me and they kept me regularly updated with his progress.
My son now loves attending and is always exhausted after the busy day he has had. I highly recommend this nursery.

Little Stars really do go above and beyond for children in their care, all the staff and managers are really approachable. The care they show for each child doesn't go unnoticed and I thank you for looking after my granddaughter.

Wonderful caring staff. Helped to put me at ease as I had never left my daughter for that long (an hour, then half a day). Texted me to let me know that she's fine and happy. Always quick to respond if I text them for an update.
Happy staff and very happy kids.
