Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.717 for Little Elms Nursery (part of Elmhurst School for Boys) is calculated as follows: ( (43 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.717

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 Elms Nursery (part of Elmhurst School for Boys) is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 3.2 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.

Since starting at Little Elms Nursery my son has developed so much in all areas: His confidence, his language, his thought processes.
He loves Elmhurst. They listen to his needs and fulfil them. Respect goes both ways, manners are a must and I love that.
He'll continue at Elmhurst as learning is fun. The teachers love to teach and the kids learn by having a place where being a child and all that crazy imagination is encouraged.

Since my son joined the Little Elms Nursery there has been a great improvement in his activities. He has progressed beyond his year as described by his teachers and that has only come about as a result of the school he is attending. Improved speech, always wants to make his voice heard, tells me when he is not happy with activities. All things he never did before. The staff are very friendly and welcoming all the time. They take the time to know each boy individually as they are all conscious learning is not the same in every child.

I would recommend Elmhurst to any parent.

Little Elms Nursery provides a very warm nurturing atmosphere for the boys to learn. The Staff are exceptional, the kids are very attached to them. My little one has tremendously improved in his communication, learning and confidence. The main key positives are:
Parents can know the activities planned for the week on a notice board, which helps to work on the same at home.
Each week is well planned to provide a continued learning in phonics and numbers. Interactive storytelling each day helps the kids to develop the habit of book reading.
Kid's activities are logged every day as pictures/videos on an online digital learning book, parents .which is very helpful for busy parents.
I am very pleased and happy that I have chosen this place.Planning to send my younger one as well once he is ready.
