  • 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 4.723 for Little Giggles Private Day Nursery & Preschool - Stockport is calculated as follows: ( (62 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.723

  • 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 4.199 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Giggles Private Day Nursery & Preschool - Stockport 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 35.2 positive Reviews (176 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 35.2 Target = 0.199

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

I can't recommend this nursery enough. Due to having to change my daughter's nursery last minute, they were so accommodating and understanding of our needs. The staff are amazing!
They always make me and my daughter feel so welcome. Due to me having to go back to work full time, it was crucial that we find a nursery that would look after my daughter and help her be prepared for preschool. I can safely say that I have found the right place.
Thank you Little Giggles!

I was an anxious parent when my son started a month ago. This was because he had only ever been with me since he was born. The staff at Little Giggles all made him feel welcome.
They always say hello to him whenever they see him.
His room carers have worked hard with him to make him settle in.

I can't fault the care given to my son at Little Giggles nursery. Whenever I pick him up he's always happy and speaks highly of the staff. He likes them very much. They are very welcoming and warm, easy to talk to and get along with. The room is large, spacious and has plenty of toys inside it also the outside area again is spacious with lots of toys.
He is taken care of well and is kept entertained. He has lots of friends at the nursery and definitely enjoys his time here.

All the staff at this nursery make you feel welcome, special and wanted - we did the tour of numerous nurseries in the area to ensure we were giving the best start to our daughter and we only felt right with Little Giggles.

Our key worker in Little Babblers and she’s really confident and knowledgeable.

The previous nursery manager had just been promoted to area manager, giving the current manager the chance to move this nursery even further forwards.

All meals are made fresh on the premises.

Fantastic.
