Reviews

8 Little Stars Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (8.007)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Little Stars Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Stars Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.933 for Little Stars Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.933

  • 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 3.074 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Stars Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.074

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

We chose this nursery after speaking to staff and the knowledge of our son's possible difficulties. We found Little Stars the best possible start for our son, they supported him, adapted and gave fresh ideas, whilst taking in parents views and working close with us.
We believe with their understanding of our child as an individual and things they put in place to support him ensured a smooth transition into primary.

My son has been with Little Stars since the day they opened last year and I can say they have provided nothing but exceptional care. My son has speech problems and the team have been so supportive in assisting us to get the specific help my son needs. They are always willing to go that extra step with their children and treat each child as an individual - I would not place my son with any other nursery after Little Stars setting the bar at 110%.

This is a brilliant nursery and my son loves it. The staff are outstanding, helpful, kind and professional. I like this nursery because you could choose either term time hours or full time hours. They are open from 8am to 6pm so if you are working it is the best choice in Folkestone. It is a new nursery and not many people seem to know about it. I have tried other nurseries and this is such a great place. Go and have a look around. The billing is always prompt and correct, the facilities are new, drop off is easy by car, communications to parents is good, staff are lovely and the manager is excellent. I am one very happy customer and I would recommend it.

The nursery is spacious, clean, fresh and has a nice feel to it. You are greeted with a smile when dropping and picking your child up and the staff are also always professional and friendly, and you are able to make appointments to discuss how your child is doing. The nursery has a vast range of equipment. The dropping of and picking up of children is very safe and secure and the nursery is clean and safe at all times. There is also a nursery mini bus, for trips and an outside area to play in. You receive a regular newsletter that keeps you up to date with things, which is really helpful. I highly recommend Little Stars Nursery

Very professional and caring staff that keep you well informed with your child's progress and are always welcoming and approachable. The nursery is modern, clean and with a large variety of equipment and toys. There is also an outside area, where the children can go and play in the fresh air. Little stars gives you the peace of mind that you can drop your child off there and go about your day, knowing that your child is playing and learning in a happy and safe environment.
