  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 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 4.812 for Little Stars Private Day Nursery, Glossop is calculated as follows: ( (195 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 239 Ratings = 4.812

  • 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 4.648 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Stars Private Day Nursery, Glossop is based on 7 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 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.648

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My little boy loves coming to nursery. He has bonded well with the staff in the Tinies Room and he has greatly developed many skills since starting 4 months ago. He enjoys the many activities provided throughout the day and is always happy when we collect him at the end of the day.

Little Stars nursery has been absolutely fantastic since the day my son started in September to now. The staff and management are all very polite and friendly and are fantastic with all the children there. My son has grown so much in confidence speech and in many other ways. I will be putting my youngest son's name down next year.

My 22-month-old daughter has loved it at Little Stars from the first time she went. The staff are so lovely, welcoming and hands on. She spends every day doing something different and sometimes doesn't even want to come home! Would recommend to everyone. Thank you Little Stars.

My son loves coming to Little Stars! All the staff are so kind and helpful! They have just had their baby room refurbished and I am so happy to say my son is in there with the best staff! There are so many activities provided to help my son further develop. Staff also do lots of activities that bring parents into the nursery, as well as regular parents evenings.

The nursery has a great ethos, they plan for the children daily and use the children's interests to engage them fully. Lots of great activities always on offer. The nursery offers lots of extras like footy tots, trips, visits, events etc at no extra cost. Staff are all kind and happy to go above and beyond.

My daughter has been coming to the nursery for a while now. The place is very welcoming and supports us as a family. I feel confident she gets the best care and always keeps us up to date with her progress and development. She starts school this year and because of her being here she is all ready to go.

A wonderful place for children to flourish. A wide variety of activities always on offers for the children to enjoy that are tailored to their needs and interests. The team are all happy and passionate and engaging. I recommend to any parent who wants their child to be treated as an individual and learn whilst being loved and cared for! The nursery brings everyone together from the local community to getting parents, grandparents, sibling and other family members involved.

Had a lovely Welly Walk with the team on Saturday. My daughter had been looking forward to it all week and both my son and daughter had a brilliant time splashing in puddles, running up hills and playing back at the Nursery after the hot chocolate and snacks. Thank you to the team for giving up their Saturday to provide entertainment for the children and families - definitely beyond the call of duty.

We are looking forward to all the Christmas treats the team have got planned! My children have already made Christmas decorations, have been singing along to Christmas songs and I have hear much excitement about the Nativity play!

Keep up the good work team and special thanks to the staff in the Baby Room, After School club and the Manager and Deputy Manager for all of their efforts.

A most welcoming nursery from the moment it opened in January 2015. The premises, rooms and outside space are well equipped and safe. The nursery is set out into appropriate age/development areas and these are fully equipped and differentiated to meet the needs of the children. The staff are extremely welcoming, warm and attentive to both the child's and parents needs. All staff are excellently trained and skilled. Communication between parents and staff is excellent, through information boards, newsletters, record books, files, key workers and lovely friendly conversations about your child's progress and development. I personally feel this is a wonderful nursery and such a lovely place for my child to start their education and development. My child is extremely happy to be attend and this can be seen every time I drop him off and collect him. I very happy that my child attends Little Stars and only have positive things to say, as it's such a good nursery.

Amazing nursery, all of the staff are lovely. I have 5 children and out of all the nursery's I have come across this one is the best by far. The safeguarding of the children is fantastic and they are great with allergies. All the children are happy and content whilst they are there. Can not think of a bad word to say!
