Reviews

9.9 Little Nutkins Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.902)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Little Nutkins Nursery 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Nutkins Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.902 for Little Nutkins Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (184 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.902

  • 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 Nutkins Nursery is based on 17 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 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.

My little boy absolutely loves attending Little Nutkins and we could not be happier about how he has settled there. The staff create a nurturing environment where the children continually develop and are thriving. They are always looking at the next steps for how the children can progress and we are informed through the assessment app 'tapestry'. We love seeing the activities he does at nursery and what he is achieving.
We feel that our son is very happy at Little Nutkins and that is because of the caring staff.

My daughter has attended Little Nutkins 3 days a week since it opened just over a year ago. She has progressed immensely over this time and it's thanks to the amazing staff and fabulous environment they create. She comes home after each session with a huge smile on her face and usually in a change of clothes (mud, paint etc seem to just gravitate toward her!) I know that she has had lots of fun and has been allowed to be herself (digging for worms included) and this is what I wanted from a nursery. It is definitely a home from home.

The quality of early years care provided is outstanding, with a high standard of infrastructure enabling a clear focus on both the physical and social/emotional development of my son. He clearly enjoys his time there and is thriving, developing so many new skills in such a short amount of time since joining the nursery in January.
The activities in the baby room are varied and development-focussed (I value highly, the items he makes and brings home with him)
The care is individualised to make sure my son's needs are accounted for and the parental feedback/liaison is both in-depth and valuable.
I couldn't recommend this nursery highly enough. The choice in selecting a nursery for our children is always a difficult one.
Both the staff at Little Nutkins and the quality of their provision has made sure my choice was one well made.

My little boy attends the nursery 3 days per week - he loves it and is very happy to go each morning. He has a great relationship with the staff and is building some good friendships with the children too. The nursery staff are proactive, have a can do attitude and are very caring. They get to know your child really well and make the nursery a lovely place for the children to be. I would highly recommend this setting.

This is an excellent nursery that I would definitely recommend. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. My son loves going there every week. I feel his development has come on a lot faster than it would have done if he wasn't attending nursery, for example, his speech is brilliant for his age.

My child absolutely loves going to this nursery. She has developed so much since entering the nursery at 10 months old. She is now nearly 2 and is absolutely thriving. The staff are brilliant with her, she loved her time in the baby unit and now she has transitioned so well to the toddler area due to the friendly, caring and hardworking staff. She eats well there and often asks for seconds. She has made some lovely little friends there. Both of her parents are very happy with the provision.

My son absolutely loves this nursery and so do we. He is really thriving and the level of care he receives is outstanding. The Tapestry updates are fantastic, giving us a really good insight into our son's daily life at nursery, achievements and development milestones. The care workers go above and beyond and form strong bonds with the children. My son eats better than we do during the day (my husband jokes about enrolling himself here) and takes part in so many different activities. Every day we get a written report on his day. He brings home his artwork and I was so surprised by the wonderful items in the Christmas bag. I was told it would be the hardest thing to do, sending my baby boy to the nursery, however, the staff made it such an easy transition with settling in sessions and I'm glad that whilst we're at work, our son is in safe hands. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

I moved my daughter to this nursery mid-November 2016, and it was the best decision I have made. Her speech has come along so much, she settled in very well and the main thing that has made all the difference is the staff and how willing they are to do anything to help better your child. My daughter was potty trained within 3 days. I couldn't be happier with this nursery.

I have four children, 3 have attended Nutkins but are all at school now, the oldest being 10 years and our fourth child has just started Little Nutkins as its near to our home. We have had nothing but the greatest of experience regarding the nursery and we know our children are in really good hands. The fact that most of the staff have been the same over the years shows that they are a good employer and the staff are obviously happy and have lots of experience, I feel they know our family. I really like all the extra activity's that the have, Petite Acting Academy, football coaching, cooking club and science club, the kids have really enjoyed these. I always recommend them to people who are looking for a nursery.

Fantastic nursery with amazing staff who are always on hand to help and update us on our children's progress. Most of all we are 100% happy that our children are in safe hands where they receive love and guidance.
The facilities are outstanding with a wonderful outdoor area, we love the fact our children have the choice to play inside or outside, no matter what the weather! Both our boys love Little Nutkins. Highly recommended.

Little Nutkins is an absolutely fantastic nursery. My daughter started at 8 months and has never had a day that she didn't want to go in and see her extended family, play with all the lovely toys and fun activities. Staff are extremely approachable, supportive and accommodating. Highly recommend.

As the parent of a child who struggles with nursery due to separation anxiety, I always feel safe in the knowledge that the care she receives here is exemplary. Staff are always welcoming, kind and knowledgeable and create a safe, happy environment for the children to play and learn. With excellent inside and outside areas and regular updates on your child's progress. Both myself and my daughter wouldn't hesitate in highly recommending Little Nutkins.

Since joining Little Nutkins Nursery my son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going to nursery every day. My son has had the most amazing time and he has had lots of fun. The nursery itself is a fun and bright environment and I think it provides the backdrop for more effective learning. My son loves the 'Aunties' very much and the teachers are very approachable for parents. My son attends full time. Our experience of the little Nutkins Nursery has been fantastic and we would definitely recommend to others.

My child has been at little Nutkins since September, he loves going and tells me everything he has done. I can't fault the nursery at all, the staff are lovely and the nursery is always clean and when I take my child I know they are well looked after and cared for.

I'm really pleased with the care my son has received since he started in September. So much time and effort went into settling him in and the staff are so thorough in giving you updates and keeping you informed of their progress.
My little boy loves going to Little Nutkins and can't wait to get there. The activity schedule is always really interesting and diverse and the food menu is excellent!
Would highly recommend.
