Reviews

7.3 My Little Barn Owls Ltd has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.312)

The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for My Little Barn Owls Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for My Little Barn Owls Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.812 for My Little Barn Owls Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (227 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 276 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for My Little Barn Owls Ltd is based on 23 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 15 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.

All the staff are lovely and have all formed their own bonds with my daughter. We will be sad to leave after this year for school. Would defo recommend this nursery to anyone. They defo are second to none in my opinion.

I would highly recommend My Little Barn Owls, the nursery is extremely flexible and caters to my child's needs as I am a shift worker. Each staff member treats my child with respect. My child has developed extremely well and he has very good social skills. I feel this is due to the nursery.

My daughter enjoys attending nursery 2 days a week. I find the nursery's communication with parents is excellent, they provide an excellent handover when collecting your child. The staff are approachable and friendly. I have felt part of the "nursery family" from day one!! Keep up the good work guys :)

Can't praise the setting highly enough, all staff show they care and have fantastic bonds with the children.
They always have positive comments and are so supportive, it is obvious that they care about your child and want to help them achieve the very best for them.
Wish we had started with you sooner.

As my son is now at school, he goes to Barn Owls before and after and still loves it. He gets help from the staff with his reading, writing, and maths. The staff ask us what areas he needs help with and he has come on leaps and bounds with the help of Barn Owls.

My daughter started nursery in December and she has settled in very very well, the staff are amazing with her and would always go over and above. They are very flexible if and when needed and if extra days are required they always go out of there way to accommodate this too. In the 3 months of her starting nursery my daughter has come on leaps and bounds and cannot thank them enough for this. I would highly recommend anyone to send there child to this nursery.

My son has just started this nursery and so far I have been extremely impressed. The care and management staff are exceedingly good. They have responded to all my queries and all my requests were answered with a yes. Extremely flexible and accommodating. I have looked around at a few childcare options and this is truly second to none. My son also immediately took a liking to the place i.e. he didn't cry and want to go home on the first visit possibly due to the open space. I like the fact it also has a car park and I do not have to park on a busy road.

When I was looking for a nursery I had a long list in my area. However My Little Barn Owls was the first and only one I looked at. It was a good size, lots of friendly staff and felt right. was flexible also. My son started his settling in days, I felt so comfortable and during this time there I am even happier with the staff and environment. My son is turning three and no matter which areas, the key workers have been amazing, he loves them.

Late review of Santa's breakfast but had a fantastic time - myself and my child's grandparents attended and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. A great chance to read my child's progress folder and see what he has been up to and how he is progressing. Also great to get to know the staff more and meet other parents. Would just like to say the staff at Little Barn Owls are fab. Great with the kids and lots of fun as well as learning. My son struggled when he first started and now loves it. Me and my partner like the fact they also have a male member of staff which isn't seen very often and our little boy has a great bond with him. Thanks for being great little barn owls and keep it up!

Our daughter has settled into the nursery extremely well. She is aware if her teachers and has built relationships with staff and friends too. Our daughter has progressed from Barn Owl room to pre school. She is very confident and meeting her learning needs is expected. I am confident in taking and leaving my daughter in their capable hands. I would like to see introduction of a uniform in the pre school and possibly more structured classes as per pre school settings. Overall really impressed with the care our daughter receives. Thank you Barn Owl team.
