Overview

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 32 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 23 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 4.889 for Little Schoolhouse is calculated as follows: ( (339 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 380 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 23 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). 23 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 son has been attending the nursery for only a short time and has changed loads in himself. He is now fully potty trained due to staff support as they are an amazing friendly team who work very hard. He enjoys all the fun activities they set and provide good standard meals for the children.

Since my son has started at Little Schoolhouse he has come on leaps and bounds in both confidence and how quickly he learns new things. All the staff are always friendly and helpful, nothing seems like too much trouble. We also like that it is small which gives the children more one on one time.

After being a little anxious about leaving my child at 11 months old to return to work I needn't have worried at all. Little Schoolhouse were amazing and within a few visits she settled in nicely and now literally skips through the door. The staff are fantastic and any concerns have always been rectified immediately.

Our daughter loves the staff at Little Schoolhouse and greets them each morning with a smile. They have been key in helping her to reach developmental milestones and have been excellent in giving me feedback on what she's been doing with her day. The children regularly engage in fun activities such as crafts and messy play. The nursery is always clean and it has a great selection of toys for all ages.

I can highly recommend this nursery. My son didn't get off to a great start with a childminder so I arranged an appointment at the nursery. Best thing I've done!

Staff are great, friendly and approachable, and have been flexible when needing to change days.

They have been patient and reassuring to me especially at the start when it was all new for my boy and things took time to settle down.
This morning when I dropped him off he put his arms out to one of the staff and it was lovely.

I wouldn't have it any other way now, he will be there until he starts nursery/playschool.

My daughter has really enjoyed her time at Little Schoolhouse. She goes in full of smiles and comes out beaming. she loves telling me about all the activities she been doing throughout the day, and each day is different. She's a proper little explorer and loves nothing more than helping out. Her personality and independence has really been nurtured and gently encouraged.

Food has never been an issue and she enjoys all the wholesome food served at the nursery. I'm amazed with her taste buds. All the girls at Nursery are fantastic and my daughter loves them all and calls them her friends. She'll miss you all when she starts big girl school in April.
Well done Ladies, your setting the standards high and way above any nursery in the area.

When my son started in Little Schoolhouse I was a little worried as he had been with a childminder up until then. I decided on Little Schoolhouse from reviews from friends so myself and my son went to visit.

My son didn’t talk or eat much at this point so I was worried about him. I’m so so glad I took my friends advice as my son's speech is 100% better and he now has a good appetite and that’s all thanks to all the girls working there.

The staff are always around if you need a chat or some advice on how he is getting on. He’s settled amazingly well and I’m so thankful for everyone who has helped my son come out of himself and persevered with his food issue. I will be eternally grateful for everything they have done so far to bring him up to speed and long may it continue. I wouldn’t dream of moving him anywhere until he starts school. One thing left to say and that’s thank you to you all for all your hard work with my son from the bottom of my heart. He loves you all too!

This nursery is one of the friendliest and most accommodating I've ever been to. All the staff there are friendly, helpful and polite. My daughter has settled in so well and her stay with them is a fun and exciting one. They go out of their way to ensure us as parents feel comfortable and confident about leaving your child with them. Excellent nursery.

I highly recommend Little Schoolhouse day nursery. My daughter has been going since she was 9 months old and everyone who knows her can see how well she’s progressed since being a part of the day care.
The staff are all very lovely, great atmosphere, the place looks fantastic and there’s so many interesting activities they do with the kids to help them develop and have fun.
Thank you for all that you do for our little girl.

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.

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.
