  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.774 for Little Muffins Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (135 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.774

  • 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 Muffins Nursery is based on 14 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 10.2 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.

Choosing a nursery for your child is a difficult decision for most parents but from my first 15-minute walk around Little Muffins, I was certain that it was a place that I could happily leave my son. The nursery has gone from strength to strength consistently providing an environment that is warm, loving, nurturing and safe. The relationship between the staff and parents is honest and open where the needs of each individual child are met as well collectively meeting national standards. The passion shown from all staff is reflected in my son excitement to go to nursery each day, the variety of activities that he takes part and the genuine sense that "all my teachers love me".

The Little Muffins Nursery is a great place for our little son. He has been going there for one and a half years and he is extremely happy. The staff are very caring and friendly and they pay close attention to the children's well-being and development. Our son has learned a lot during his time there and he is very happy to go there it feels like a big family where all the kids and staff know and trust each other. They use a variety of materials to educate the kids and try to encourage physical activities outdoors too.

Little Muffins is the most wonderful nursery. From the first time I came to visit, I felt at home here and my daughter settled in so quickly when she was only five months old.

The staff look after her like she's their own daughter and she has so much fun, always coming home happy and smiling. The facilities are great and I couldn't wish for a nicer, cleaner or safer environment for my baby.

More than anything, it feels like a family.

I whole-heartedly recommend Little Muffins. My 2-year-old son has been there for a year and I am very happy with the care he receives. The environment is warm and welcoming and well-thought out (they recently put a reflection corner in the reception area for children to have one-on-one time with a carer) and the staff are wonderful - also warm and welcoming (and perhaps well-thought out!). I have no qualms leaving him with them each day.

I could not have wished for my son to be in a better place. Little Muffins is so much more than your average nursery. The atmosphere is very homey and warm. The staff are so invested, loving and super well qualified, and I trust them fully with my son’s wellbeing and overall growth. The staff and the manager have over time become an important part of the family. I can't thank them enough for being so amazing at what they do and the efforts they put in day in and day out.

We love Little Muffins. Both our boys have ‘grown up’ there. Our eldest from 8 months -3 years old and our youngest from 5 months until now (nearly 2 years old). I could never describe it as a nursery but rather a family, and a home-from-home. All the staff are fantastic and lovely and friendly, but most importantly to us, they adore the kids. There is structure around EYFS, but nothing too heavy for the littler ones. The creativity and ever-inspiring activities are perfect and both come home happier than ever - in fact, they can never wait to go back!

They really listen and get to know your child. They care for them individually and there is such a great atmosphere to the place.

An incredibly positive experience over the last 4.5 years from the support for us as parents to the level of love and attention, and care and development for our children. A place I know the boys will remember forever.

I have had two children at Little Muffins Nursery and will be sending my third child there in the autumn. I am very satisfied not only with the level of care they receive but the foundations for learning that are in place. My eldest found settling into primary school very easy and was where he needed to be in terms of knowledge of numbers and letters.

Although it would be great if there was some outside space for the children to use I know that they are regularly taken to the park when weather permits and again this is good preparation for school trips later on. I have found that each member of staff knows the children even if they are not in their class and I have confidence that they have been fed well during the day. I would (and have) recommend Little Muffins.

I feel like Little Muffins is a "home away from home". It is for this exact reason, that we send our son here. There is a warm, nurturing vibe to the nursery and I know our son is extremely happy to spend his day here.

All the staff know his name and say hi to him when he arrives, I found this very impressive. The manager and her team are incredible and have a genuine love for all the children.

My first son started in December 2014 and I have never looked back. He settled in very quickly with the help from his key worker and members of staff. My second son started in February 2016 and he loves it. The staff are very caring and loving ensuring the children don’t feel scared or the feeling of missing their parents. It’s like a home from home. I can’t recommend this nursery enough.

Our son has been attending Little Muffins since he was six months old. He is now three and has formed a strong bond with his carers and other children.
This is testament to the quality at Little Muffins and their holistic attitude towards getting their children ready for their next stages in life.
It is multi-cultural, multi-racial, highly energetic and we have no problems giving Little Muffins the highest endorsement possible.

I would like to recommend Little Muffins Nursery to everyone. There is a good environment. Moreover, I find a huge support from the manager and staff. People who work there are always nice, helpful and passionate. Teachers are good quality and pay attention to children's learning and development. At the same time, the nursery keeps high cleaning and hygiene standards. My child, since she started at Little Muffins Nursery, has progressed a lot in socialising with peers and her English language skills have improved.
