The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Little Flyers @ West Calder & Out of School Care is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Flyers @ West Calder & Out of School Care in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.846 for Little Flyers @ West Calder & Out of School Care is calculated as follows: ( (267 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 312 Ratings = 4.846

  • 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 Flyers @ West Calder & Out of School Care is based on 20 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 13.8 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.

The staff working in this nursery provide a safe and caring environment for young children to play and learn. My daughter has been attending for about 6months and she has developed so much both socially and mentally. She has also been a great help to the staff which has taught her about being responsible and helping others. Additionally, the staff are of great help by providing options for flexible hours and are willing to accommodate you the best way they can.

Hi Tineille
Thank you for this, we are really pleased that your wee one has settled, and that you are happy with her development, and the care given by our staff.

My little boy attends this nursery and his care is brilliant.

I not only trust the staff - I come home feeling that they genuinely love him and that makes all the difference.

I wrote a review a few months ago where I suggested they were not flexible but a change in management has seen that improve massively and I no longer have any issues.

10 out of 10!

Sharon.

My daughter has now been with Little Flyers almost one year now. She will be turning two in June, so will be moving to the Junior Room soon. Her time within the Baby Room has been fantastic. The staff do a fantastic job and always make sure they have a fun and educational day planned. Recently my daughter has learned the colour orange through their structured play and decided to share her new skill at the supermarket by pointing and screaming at everything ORANGE! My clever girl made a few people in the shop smile that day! Looking forward to seeing what the next year at Little Flyers brings.

Hi Claire, thanks for writing this, where is time going ... two in June! I am really pleased that you are all happy, and can imagine the fun of pointing out everything ORANGE :-)
Sharon.

My son started at Little Flyers at 9 months old and settled in straight away. He absolutely loves it! All the staff are fantastic - they're enthusiastic, friendly, attentive and very clearly love their jobs. It's wonderful never having to worry about my child when I'm at work as I know he's happy, safe and having a great time. I'm impressed with the range of toys they have - lots of sensory and Montessori type play, as well as plenty of messy and outdoor play. I think the nursery really excels in involving parents and carers and providing individualised care for each child.

Hi Souraya,
Thanks for taking the time to write your review. It's lovely to hear how pleased parents are, and that you feel confident that your wee one is happy and safe. I do agree the staff are a super team, and it means a lot to them when they read these reviews. Thanks :-)

Wonderful place for my boys aged 10 and 8. They visit the after school club at Little Flyers @ West Calder and thoroughly enjoy their time there. Weekly activities and visits from wonderful people like football coaches and animal carers with great unusual animals.The staff are all great and you can tell that they enjoy the work that they do. The building itself is beautiful and after using different after school clubs in the past I would highly recommend Little Flyers. Thank you.

My granddaughter started at this nursery about 5 weeks ago. She's 14 months old and loves it there, mention nursery to her and she goes to get her jacket. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and take care of all the children who attend. They provide plenty of information if required.

Sharon :-)

The staff within Little Flyers are great. Always give you feedback on how your child has been during that day and what they have done. Always very welcoming and open. The girls are lovely and encourage the children into activities.

Thank you, Nicole, for taking the time to send this review. Sharon :-)

My son has been going to Little Flyers since October 2016. I was so happy to have found this nursery as they provide a pickup service from my son's council nursery and take him to Little Flyers until I finish work.
I find the staff very approachable and they give excellent handover's regarding what my son has been eating/playing/making. The nursery setting is lovely and always clean. I can't praise Little Flyers and the staff enough and look forward to my son attending the after school club once he starts school.

Thanks, Fiona, for the high praise, and it's great when it all works out. Sharon :-)

Since my daughter has started this nursery she has come on so well. She is always so happy going into nursery and seems to really enjoy it. Getting her day diary home at the end of each session she has is brilliant as I can see what she has been up to and what she has had to eat.

There has only been one occasion I've felt unsatisfied with the nursery but this was raised and I felt happy going forward.

The staff in the nursery are extremely friendly and seeing my daughter at ease with them makes me know that I've chosen the correct childcare for her.

My daughter is a member of the Afterschool Club and holiday clubs.
She has a great relationship with the staff and loves all the activities they put on. In fact she's always at me to pick her up later.

I use Little Flyers for the after-school club - and I am very happy with this. My wee boy loves it and I feel he gets a good range of activities to join in, as well as lots of toys and games to play with. The walk from school to Little Flyers is good for him too and I know he enjoys this.

Sharon.

My son loves going to nursery from being very tearful and not sure about going in, after a couple of weeks he settled right in and to now 7 months on he absolutely loves going, full of smiles, rushes to the door in the morning just to get in and play. He has learned a lot and he has come on leaps and bounds and that due to the staff (their commitment, great attitude) and the way they are just in general with all the kids with talking to them and doing activities with them... my son was at a different nursery before I moved him to here and there are no regrets at all from day one.. would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Little Flyers is an excellent nursery. I have 2 boys enrolled, we had previously had our youngest in a different nursery and he became unhappy, so we looked for another closer to home. What we found was an excellent welcoming feeling and we have not seen someone blossom as much as our youngest. Our oldest son also attends Little Flyers but attends the after school club. Again he has been able to grow and blossom at Little Flyers. Definitely recommend!!

My daughter has attended Little Flyers for a year. The staff have been very welcoming to us as a family and very patient with any concerns we have had with our daughter. Her key worker always goes above and beyond for her.

We are given thorough feedback at pick up time and it is great to hear about all the activities she has taken part in during the day.

My son has been attending Little Flyers @ West Calder from when it first opened. He loves his time there and has so many friends. He takes part in a football club every Wednesday which he thinks is brilliant.

From day one this nursery has been fantastic. The communication between my daughter and her key worker is on top form. Each day the staff go through lists of activities the children have been up to and what they have eaten. I would highly recommend this nursery. My daughter has been attending since August and she loves it.

Little Flyers has been a great support to me while I have continued my studies at college. The staff have always welcomed me and other family members and most importantly give my daughter the best care I could hope while I am at college. My daughter gets a chance to participate in a wide range of activities and always has a lot of fun when at nursery. She has a great relationship with all staff members who treat her in the best way possible.

Very friendly and caring staff who make the children feel welcome when they start. Our daughter has settled in now and really enjoys her time at nursery. She takes part in many different activities and has lots of opportunities to play outside which I am pleased about. The staff provide great learning opportunities and extend the play by following the children's lead. Always given an extremely comprehensive handover at the end of the day. Keep up the good work all the staff.

The facility is amazing and very personal to the kids. I love everything the children get to make and learn in the nursery and really are nurtured.
The staff are fantastic! Take the time to learn about your kids. Interact with them well and really bring the best out in your kids. It is so obvious that the staff enjoy playing with the kids, and don't mind getting messy with them.

I have two kids at the nursery, one preschool and one at school - both of them love going. The staff are great with kids, always friendly and doing lots of activities with them. Very flexible with sessions providing different session times and also having holiday club/after school club for older children! I have used several nurseries now and this one has by far been the most convenient.

Both our children absolutely love the nursery and after just less than two months we can already observe it's great for their development, the time spent at the nursery has been. The staff are absolutely fantastic, the building is very spacious, very safe, clean and very well equipped. It's absolutely crucial for us that we know our children are safe and have a great time when they are there. Highly recommended.

Thanks Rafal, it is so lovely to know that you and the children are pleased with Little Flyers, and happy with our fantastic team of staff. Thank you. Sharon :-)

My daughter has been going to Little Flyers since she was 6 months old, she loves it and she can't wait to get there in the morning. It has given her so much confidence, the staff are really friendly and she feels at home.

Thanks Gail, it is so reassuring knowing that the children are happy and settled, and families are pleased with us.

Fantastic place.
The nursery is lovely, bright and welcoming.
The staff have created a great environment with absolutely everything to keep your little ones entertained throughout the day. Staff update you on everything your child does throughout the day. My child who is 5 loves going and really enjoys her time here and I feel relaxed that she is in safe hands whilst I am working.
Keep up the great work Flyers.
