With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Little People Alwoodley provides full day care for children between the ages of three months and five years. Outdoor learning and exploration is strongly promoted at the nursery which not only has its own grounds but also makes use of the extensive grounds of Alwoodley School. These offer a pond and wildlife area, sensory trail, and large playing fields, to enhance children’s learning and love of the outdoors.

Children are separated into age-appropriate rooms, where the activities they participate in are suitable for their stages of development and underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This ensures that they are well supported throughout their time at the nursery and receive the best learning opportunities possible.

Staff are mature and qualified and the nursery has a secure door entry system which means parents can rest assured that their children are in safe hands at Little People Alwoodley.

Reviews

8.9 Little People Alwoodley has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.908)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Little People Alwoodley is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little People Alwoodley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 7 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 4.643 for Little People Alwoodley is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.643

  • 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 4.265 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little People Alwoodley is based on 7 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 26.4 positive Reviews (132 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 26.4 Target = 0.265

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

Reviewer Connection to Little People Alwoodley

We have been really pleased with the provision at Little People. The staff are extremely caring and very consistent and there is a wide variety of activities provided every week. Our daughter has been very happy to go and there are clear expectations from staff in terms of behaviour and self-care which is excellent. The online learning journal is also a great communication tool that is updated regularly.

After moving my son from a previous nursery due to lack of care, I am truly beyond words at how amazing the staff and management team are at Alwoodley nursery! My little boy has come on in leaps and bounds and the staff always have times for any concerns and feedback! I always feel welcome and feel the warmth as soon as I enter nursery! The food is also freshly cooked and my little boy always has seconds of everything! The manager is so comforting and reassuring and bends over backwards for all parents she always welcomes us in and will stop everything she's doing if we need to talk to her. The staff are all fully trained to handle my little boy who has epilepsy which really puts my mind at ease when I have to leave him and go to work! I look forwards to the rest of my little boy's journey at little people's!

Friendly staff, have bonded with my child really well, she has built in confidence and is very happy attending nursery, the activities that the children do are great. The staff work hard and are happy, any problems they are always happy to discuss them. The review at the end of the day is good. The outdoor area is full of great toys to build imagination, my child always points to them on the way out. My daughter attended from 10 months, and she has developed so much during her time here. She loves it when they all sing songs.

My son loves it at Alwoodley nursery. Staff are very caring and understanding in overall circumstances.

I wish the nursery opened at 7am to cover for those parents that start work at 8am. Closing time is absolutely perfect.

Chris Hallas, Director at Little People Alwoodley responded to this review on 02 Mar 2017:

Thanks for your lovely words.
Would just like to say we have no plans to open any earlier at present.

Love this nursery. When my little girl was in the baby room and ready to move up, I didn't want her to leave because we loved the staff so much, not knowing it would be the same in the next room as well. The ladies are so caring, friendly and kind. My daughter loves them all.
Really pleased I chose this nursery for her and looking forward to her moving to the final room in the summer.
