Reviews

9.9 Little Bear's in East Village has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.906)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Little Bear's in East Village 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Bear's in East Village in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 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 4.906 for Little Bear's in East Village is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.906

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Bear's in East Village is based on 15 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 14.4 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 relationship with Little Bear's East Village spans back to September 2014 to date. They have looked after (and continue to do so) my 2 girls. Exceptional care, a truly great nursery that I'm glad I found.

Little Bear's nursery has been great with my daughter who is sixteen months old. My son also attended the nursery when he was little and I can state categorically that Little Bear's is the best nursery. The support is outstanding, the key workers are brilliant and the management and staff simply exceptional. The staff managed my kids so well especially my son who used to have tantrums and always wanted to be alone but Little Bear's staff changed that. That was one of the biggest turning points for me of which I will always be grateful for. Up till now whenever my son accompanies me to pick up his kid sister he keeps saying "mum can I please attend this nursery again?" My kids have formed a bond with the staff.

The learning pattern and method is fantastic too.

As a parent, I feel so comfortable and at peace that my daughter is in safe hands. The staff always update me on my daughter's progress daily.

Should I have more kids in the near future, they will be attending Little Bear's for sure.

My son has always been very happy at Little Bears Nursery. He has made many friends & has bonded very well with the staff, who have made every effort to create a happy and caring environment. Teachers are lovely and the management very supportive and caring for children's well-being. The space is lovely, in particular, the large garden. Children are given lots of play time but also taught counting, letters and getting dressed in preparation for school. The food is of a high standard and very varied. My son loves the free football and singing classes. Overall great value for money & highly recommended!

My two grandsons attend Little Bears (3 years and 8 months); the eldest since he was 9 months old. I am constantly impressed by the ways in which Little Bear's works with children and parents in supporting each child's development and learning. From the moment they walk through the door, children (and parents) are greeted with smiles by managers and nursery staff. Children feel welcome as they start their day and parents know their child will be settled into class. All staff take an active role in developing each child's emotional and social skills, knowing their little ways and nuances. Key Workers give daily feedback to parents on the little things their child has done that day, which is just as important as what they've eaten or activities they've been involved in.

Little Bear's provides a caring and learning environment for children, giving parents confidence that their little ones will be safe and (most of all) happy as they learn new skills, make friends and prepare for school.

The staff has made my son and I feel very welcome. Even when I moved house, I couldn't take him out as my son loves going there in the morning. They are very attentive when it comes to his health as he may need an asthma pump. The nursery has taught my son how to play with others and how to share. He talks very well and is a very loving child. They have brought out the best in my son. I would recommend this nursery to any who asked.

Little Bears Nursery is a caring and loving environment to nurture babies and toddlers to grow and learn into confident individuals. It has a very friendly atmosphere and the children are taught good manners, to be loving and caring to their friends, to share and be kind, most of all they learn through play with interactive activities.

Story time is something my children really enjoy along with numerous outdoor activities in an amazing outdoor space, set up into different sections for outdoor play. From scooters and bikes to slides and toys, the children enjoy the outdoor activities as much as the interactive play sessions organised each day. Friendships are nurtured by staff and both my girls enjoy their time here. The feedback each day is very well thought out and gives a great insight as to how your kiddies get on each day. Peace of mind that your children are cared for makes it easier to leave them with this knowledge.

An outstanding nursery with a caring and knowledgeable team of nursery staff with an excellent nursery management team. My daughter attended from a small baby through until she left for school last month. My daughter was very happy going to nursery each day and enjoyed her time with her friends. Over the years at nursery, we have seen her grow in confidence and independence. The nursery is well resourced, always clean and has a lovely garden area. I always highly recommend Little Bear's to our friends.

I am extremely happy with Little Bear's Nursery. I sent my first son there when they first opened 5 years ago and have sent my 2nd son who has been there for a year and a half now. Both my children love/loved attending Little Bear's the staff are friendly and professional. The manager who I have known for 5 years, has always been consistent, approachable, professional and friendly. The standards of the nursery are impeccable and I have no concerns when leaving my son there on a daily basis. I would recommend Little Bears to any parent who requires a high standard of childcare. I am very particular about who looks after my children and always feel that any opinions or questions that I have are welcomed.

My son has been attending Little Bear's in East Village Nursery from the age of 9 months. He recently transferred from the baby room to the 2-3 room and he is happy to go to nursery as he likes the activities, especially story time, messy play and singing, as well as to see his friends. He has learned a lot since he started nursery.

He loves being outside in the garden so if the weather permits he can run around in their outdoor area.

I am very happy with the staff and management whom are welcoming, professional and caring. I find it really helpful to get feedback about his day (food, activities and sleep) when I pick him up and have regular parents evenings about his development.

My son has been attending Little Bears since the age of 6 months, Little Bears is a home away from home with friendly, attentive and caring staff. I have always felt comfortable to speak with staff and management, all who are very professional.
I recently moved home and moving my son's nursery was not an option, he is very well settled with a routine and friends.

I have recommended the nursery to family and friends, as I feel Little Bears is an ideal environment for any child.

We love Little Bears in East Village. My older daughter has attended for almost 2 years and has been very happy there. The staff are wonderful and the facilities are fantastic. The excellent outside space was one of the reasons we first came to visit when looking at nurseries.
The staff have looked after my daughter throughout her transitions to each of their rooms (baby room, 2-3 room and now preschool) and she has been happy and very well cared for in each of the rooms. The feedback to parents from staff is regular and I find communication between staff and parents to be very good. We also enjoy the family events that the nursery puts on, such as the Summer Party. I am excited that my younger daughter is starting in the baby room there soon.

I have two kids at Little Bear's both since they were twelve months, currently eighteen months and three and a half years. My girls both love going to nursery and have made great connections with the staff. The staff are friendly and helpful and treat the kids with respect. The staff organise lots of activities for the kids like music and football sessions. The nursery also does lovely summer and Christmas parties for the whole family.

Little Bear's in East Village is a very well maintained nursery. The staff is extremely helpful and understanding, they have genuine concern for the kids. The nursery manager is very accommodating and always follows feedback in the most positive way. The nursery is always clean and tidy and the staff are aware of the child's day to day activities. I feel my child is in the safest environment possible. I am very happy with this nursery's standards, my kid has become much more confident since joining here.

Little Bear's in East Village is an amazing nursery, our son loved it there, and we are very sorry to leave. The girls took good care of our son who was only 7 months old when he started. He was very small and needed help with learning gross motor skills where he was a little behind. They trained with him every day and he did things for them where we were not able to get him to do at home.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Little Bear's in East Village! My Daughter started there aged 1.5 years, she was warmly welcomed and settled in by staff at her own pace.

Feedback on the day is provided with every pickup, details of activities enjoyed food etc.  Allergies, food intolerances and any regular medication/creams required are all catered for and documented and if there was ever any doubt someone would always call to double check.

Little Bears has a genuine family feel. You come to know everyone by name pretty quickly and the vibe is so friendly amongst everyone including the parents.
Most importantly, you feel like your child is safe and well looked after.

Everyone who works there, Management down, is approachable, friendly and genuinely cares.

It's such fun place with great extra curricular activities. Education through fun songs and learning games ensured my Daughter left feeling confident and ready for school.

Amazing place! Cannot recommend enough!
