Reviews

7.2 Little Wombles has a Review Score of 7.2 (7.181)

The Review Score of 7.2 (maximum of 10) for Little Wombles 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Wombles in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.681 for Little Wombles is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.681

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Wombles is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 3 positive Reviews (15 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 3 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 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.

I couldn't recommend this nursery more highly. We have been thrilled with the care our daughter has received. The activities that she gets to do gives her the most amazing experiences and opportunities to learn. Although the garden isn't huge the toys and activities they do our daughter loves and wants to spend all her time out there. It is a wonderful place for her to grow up, learn and develop. A really great nursery.

My son started when he was 9 months old- the staff were very caring and nurturing towards him as the youngest child there this helped him to settle quickly. The best thing about Little Wombles is the wide range of fun activities and learning opportunities such as sports lessons, gardening and ballet. Not a day goes by without news of an outing or experience my son has enjoyed- I really value this aspect as my preference is more towards being outside than in. For me the only downside is that there are a number of holiday closures (Christmas, Easter, Summer) for which there is no return.

My little girl really enjoys it, she comes home really talkative and has learnt new words. The staff are very lovely and I have notice she has created a bond with her key worker. Staff are very caring and they create a nurturing environment. The nursery manager is extremely helpful and has supported me immensely with finding the right balance for nursery days. Overall, we are very happy!

My son loves his time at the nursery and he has learnt a lot more quickly than he would have if not at nursery. Little Wombles always ensure they expose the kids to a variety of activities to make learning fun. I am so happy my son got a place at Little Wombles.

I'm really happy with the choice of Little Wombles (Broomhill) to be my son's nursery. In just a couple of months we could see his development at all levels. Staff are dedicated, helpful and keen on understanding his specific needs. There are also numerous extra activities every day, from ballet/dance, French, music and sports and he simply loves them all.

It's also easy to get to (by bus, in my case), King George's Park is just across the road and the area is quite safe and secure. There is also a nearby swimming club for kids.

Overall facilities are good, eventually a bigger outside space would be recommended as well as with a different (softer) floor. Currently it's tarmac, but ideally would be that soft material we can find on kids playgrounds. Other than that, rooms inside are adjusted to the kids max capacity and ratio of staff per children.

My only not-so-positive comment would be the food. It is outsourced, but it's a limitation of not having a full-kitchen in-house.

Nicky McDougal, Owner/Principal at Little Wombles responded to this review on 14 Apr 2016:

Thank you so much for this positive review of our setting. We are very proud of the extensive activities that we offer at Little Wombles and have chosen very carefully the experienced specialist teachers that we work with.
We are in agreement that the outdoor area would be better having soft tarmac and this is something we will be trying to negotiate with those we share the site with. It is a good size for the small number of children in the Nursery and we do lay down matting and create designated areas for our youngest children when they are outside. The children also enjoy a lot of time over at King Georges park for Nature walks and sports activities.
Unfortunately because we share the site we are unable to install cooking facilities, but we do work very closely with the catering company we use and they listen to our suggestions and provide well for any allergies and parental preferences.
