  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.765 for Leaping Lambs Nursery and Pre School is calculated as follows: ( (104 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.765

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Leaping Lambs Nursery and Pre School is based on 11 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 7.6 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.

We highly recommend Leaping Lambs nursery, our youngest daughter started in 2015 in their zebra baby room, she was extremely well looked after, I felt at total ease leaving her in the capable hands of the lovely staff in this room, we never had nursery experience with our eldest 2. Our daughter now is in the monkey room, she absolutely LOVES coming to nursery, it's her favourite place to be. She's made countless friends and it has improved her confidence. The staff at this setting are amazing, so approachable and interested in your child. We would highly recommend this beautiful, small, friendly setting.

We are both really pleased that we chose Leaping Lambs Nursery and Pre School. The location is perfect and the large garden and what they offer outdoors is amazing. We like the fact that they play outdoors most days and have the animals there and plant their own things. The activities indoors are so creative too and our children really look forward to going there.
All the staff are so friendly too and our children settled in really well which I think was due to their wonderful caring nature. You can log on each day to a secure and private website and can see what your child been up to, with photos and what they've eaten too which is an added bonus. We would highly recommend this nursery to anyone!

Our son enjoys his time at the nursery. It has a fantastic large outside space for the children to play in - with both grass and artificial grass so they can use it all year round. They also have animals for the children to help feed and learn about. It has a very friendly welcoming atmosphere.

Overall we are very satisfied with the care that Leaping Lambs provides for our child. They are very accommodating to any specific requests that we have made and our child seems to be very happy. We particularly like the small size of the nursery that allows a family friendly environment and consistent staff input to the children. The staff are also friendly and seem genuinely interested in our child's development and well-being. We appreciate the electronic daily diary that ensures we are fully aware of our child's activities.

We would really recommend Leaping Lambs Nursery and Pre School. Our little girl had been in the 'Zebra' baby room for about six months. She settled really quickly thanks to the caring and kind staff. She is always happy to be left in the mornings, getting excited when we pull up. The children get lots of time outside and messy play which is fab! And it's good how we get updated on her progress with an online diary and progress record.

I have two children at the nursery and my 3yr old has been there since he was 10months old. Both absolutely love it and we've never had tears - in fact it's hard to get them to leave sometimes! The staff are great and activities are creative and make learning fun

A wonderful nursery and pre-school, my son has been there over 2 years and loves going. Staff are very welcoming and professional, I am always kept up to date with his progress. It's nice to hear about the different activities that take place and lovely to have plenty of outdoor area and is nice to see animals in the garden. Cannot fault the nursery as my son has loved his time spent there.

Nicely situated village nursery with great outdoor space and lots of outdoor activities, including welly walks in surrounding countryside for older children. The nursery seems relaxed and flexible, and staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a good mix of learning and play activities/resources and regular feedback is given to parents using online diaries and learning records.

The staff are amazing ladies, always attentive, big smiles and friendly. The children obviously adore them and feel very secure there.
My little boy loves being outside, Leaping Lambs has a wonderful garden with plenty of room for the children to run and play.
Indoors there is also plenty of room with areas for different activities including the daily craft activities.
I particularly like the diary which is sent via the 'Baby days' app telling me what my child has done that day.
My little boy has delayed speech,
The Manager and her team organised and contacted the relevant people to get him the help he needs, have him assessed as well as work and support him. They always have time to talk to and answer any queries or worries I may have.

The whole environment at this nursery is friendly and child-focussed. I have always trusted the staff to take care of my two children's welfare and education and they have repaid that trust by developing warm, thoughtful and productive relationships with them.

I am a teacher myself and have been impressed with the novel ways the kids learn and are kept engaged. I especially like the rural feel and close relationship with nature. Spending time outdoors is a great way to burn off energy and have fun.

All of the staff have been friendly and professional and I feel they know my children well. The twins will be sad to leave and go to school in September, and the bar has been set reassuringly high for their future education. Great nursery, lovely people.

My daughter has enjoyed this nursery from the very first day. She looks forward to going and I have never had her say she does not want to go. I feel happy that she is safe here. It's not an overly busy preschool and nursery so I feel she gets lots of attention. She has made some lovely friends and has a lovely bond with her keyworker. She is starting school in September and will really miss going here and I am looking forward to bringing my son when he starts preschool.
