Reviews

9.1 Little Stars Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.148)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Little Stars Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Stars Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.648 for Little Stars Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.648

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Stars Day Nursery is based on 5 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 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.

We are very thankful to all staff in Little Stars Day Nursery. Our child is a preterm baby and from one year old she has come to Little Stars Nursery.
You have all supported our child and me in many ways, like medications, eating, potty training, speech and language development, social skills and learning new things every day.
You all take care of our child with care and kindness and we are happy to watch our child on the nursery camera whenever we want to see her.
Our child enjoys the freshly prepared nursery foods all day. Our child is happy and excited every day to go to nursery.
Many thanks for making our child ready for school. Little Stars Nursery is a star nursery.

It has been a pleasure looking after your child Kohila, Best wishes- Little stars team

It's a good nursery. Both of my girls attended (youngest one is still there). Staff are very friendly and communicate well. They are easy to talk to with any concerns about my daughter. I feel comfortable leaving my daughter in the nursery.

The nursery is very modern and they give updates about children using an app - which clearly states the progress of the child as compared to their age level standards. Also, CCTV access is great to check up on the little one, especially when they are not well.

Overall the food, learning experience for the child, the extra curriculum activities really benefit the child and we can see the difference in our child. Also very happy the way they support parents in any of their concerns like eating habits, sharing and respect for others, potty training etc.

Staff are very pleasant and approachable. We, as parents feel relaxed to leave our little one with them for the entire week, without a sign of doubt.

Would love some more sessions, which encourages parents to come together with children and spend a few hours experiencing what they go through in a usual day. Will bring us closer to what they enjoy and dislike during the day and give us some tips for weekends.

Jessica, Manager at Little Stars Day Nursery responded to this review on 03 May 2017:

Thankyou for your review, I will definitely review more play days for parents, we appreciate your suggestions

I am very happy with the care my daughter receives at Little Stars Day Nursery. She has been going there since she was 7 months old, being so young I found leaving her very stressful. The staff and management were continually reassuring me and have always been friendly, approachable and helpful at all times. Her main carers update me daily on activities, food eaten and her general well being throughout the day. It is really lovely when I am given a piece of 'art' made by my daughter.
My daughter has clearly benefited from being in a nursery environment, mixing with other children and developing social skills are the most noticeable. I am hoping she will continue in the nursery and enjoy the benefits to come.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for nearly a year now and from the beginning, the staff has been absolutely amazing and very patient in settling her. It is very reassuring to know that my child is receiving excellent care and enjoys going every day. I love the fact that I can log in to nursery cam to see what my child is doing during the day. All the girls and the management are great and I would highly recommend them!

We are pleased with the positive comments made about the nursery. The outside area is compact, however, it is very well equipped and ample opportunities are provided for all children to develop and learn through play.
