Reviews

9.9 Little Schoolhouse has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.891)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Little Schoolhouse 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Schoolhouse in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.891 for Little Schoolhouse is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.891

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Schoolhouse is based on 10 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 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 3.6 Target Reached = 1

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

My Daughter has been attending The Little School House for about 1 year and although she cannot talk much yet I know she is every happy there as she practically jumps out of my arms to whichever member of staff opens the door. She loves the activities especially the one where she gets messy she has made lots of lovely crafts and especially loves dressing up days these are lots of fun and all the staff get involved. The staff are all kind, helpful and welcoming at anytime through out the day when I arrive to collect my daughter and all the food is prepared on site, there is excellent variety. The staff and atmosphere of the little school house is just like dropping your child off at a relatives house, it really is a home from home.

My little girl loves going here and looks forward to seeing the friends she has made during her time here. I am always happy to leave her knowing she'll be well looked after. I love the family feel of this nursery and the staff always welcome us with a smile. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

My daughter is always thrilled to go into Schoolhouse, running in as soon as the door opens without as much as a look back. The ladies are great with her and are very reassuring with me when I drop her off and pick her up. Always keeping me informed on her sleeping and eating also sharing any stories of what she has got up to during the day.
My daughter has learned so much in a short period of time. She is much more vocal and now helps to tidy up any mess, Perfect!
Her sleeping routine has also got much better since starting. Very cosy and friendly place. Highly recommend.

Schoolhouse Tycroes is fantastic and highly recommended. My daughter has been attending for 18 months now and I can not complain. Everything really has been great, from her meals, activities, coming home with arts/crafts, learning new things and now making and naming her friends for the first time. The staff are all great, approachable, professional and informative. My daughter even asks where the staff are when we pass on the weekends :-) Thank you to all at Schoolhouse Tycroes, to have the comfort knowing my daughter is happy and well cared for is priceless and I'm grateful for that! Again, strongly recommended nursery to all.

The Little Schoolhouse Tycroes is fantastic. My daughter loves going there and the staff are amazing so friendly. My daughter is always happy when going in and loves playing with all the children. The manager is fantastic and accommodates my child's needs brilliantly.The manager is very approachable. I wouldn't want my daughter to be cared for anywhere else. I know she is being looked after which gives me great peace of mind.

I am blown away with the progress of my daughter, her speech and social skills have come on so much in the last 3 months.
She's taken a while to settle in as I had to change her nursery, she's been treated with kindness and compassion and made leaving her more bearable. Thank you to all the girls who take care of her. You're helping to forge an independent little girl.

Excellent nursery who always put the child first. My daughter loves going and I can go to work in the knowledge my daughter is happy and well looked after. The food is healthy and freshly made and staff organise educationally structured play which the children seem to all enjoy.

I'd like to take this opportunity to commend the excellent work carried out by Little Schoolhouse Tycroes nursery. My son shows developmental issues, together with autistic tendencies. I had, had a bad experience with another nursery who said they were happy to take him on but when he started going, it was very clear that they did not want to know. I waited for the Little Schoolhouse Tycroes nursery to open and spoke to the Manager. When I explained what my son's issues were, she immediately said that it wasn't a problem as they'd dealt with children like my son before. I instantly burst into tears as it is not often that I hear positive things about my son from professionals! To say that he was welcomed with open arms is an enormous understatement. They nurtured him and dealt with his needs perfectly, helping him with any issues he might have had. His social skills improved tremendously and without a doubt, helped prepare him for school. When you state that you cater for children with special needs, you really do mean it.

Susan, Nursery Manager at Little Schoolhouse responded to this review on 21 Nov 2016:

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to have looked after your son at our nursery and to have helped to prepare him for when he started school.

My child likes the nursery very much and enjoys going. All the staff are very nice and helpful. The nursery is very clean and value for money.
