Reviews

8.1 Little Diamonds Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.074)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Little Diamonds Day 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Diamonds Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.663 for Little Diamonds Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.663

  • 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 3.411 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Diamonds Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.161

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

Our son has been at this nursery for about one year, he is now 3. He is happy to be dropped off in the morning and enjoys the varied activities Little Diamonds provide. The staff are committed, friendly and have excellent communication skills.
He is offered outside activities, drawing and crafts, music and dancing. We have found the size of the group is ideal to help him with socialising but small enough to make him feel like an individual. The management are very impressive.

Denise O'Sullivan, Manager at Little Diamonds Day Nursery responded to this review on 05 May 2016:

Hi L M thanks for such a lovely review it's a pleasure having you all as part of our nursery family too :-)

We are delighted with our daughter's experience at Little Diamonds. She loves going to nursery, having started only a few months ago as a very shy child in group situations. The communication between nursery and parents is excellent. Activities are thoughtful and well planned and it's clear that each child's needs and aptitudes are recognised.

We love Little Diamonds. Lovely family run nursery it strives for quality rather than cutting corners. Both our children have been very happy there. Tons of creative activities, music, drama, trips out and nutritious food. Staff who like children and good communication with parents. Highly recommended.

I am very pleased with Little Diamonds, my daughter loves going there. She started going there at 10 months old and is now 15 months old. They do a lot of activities. Staff are lovely and my daughter is comfortable with all of them. Management is great and very accommodating. The outer space could be bigger but there are many playgrounds nearby the children are taken to. My daughter loves the food, which is very healthy. I recommend them without hesitation.

My son started at Little Diamonds when he was 11 months old. The staff are all so friendly and caring. He gets lots of cuddles if he is sad or tired. They do lots of great activities, like painting, playing with sand, water and other messy play. They have been on trips outside the nursery. The atmosphere is really calm and my son really likes it there.
