Reviews

8.3 Little Lions Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.337)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Little Lions Day Nursery 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Lions Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.583 for Little Lions Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 3.754 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Lions Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.254

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

My daughter has attended Little Lions for over a year now. The staff in the baby room were brilliant, always welcoming and caring and she loved going in. She has now moved to the Toddler room upstairs, the staff all made sure the move was smooth and as stress-free as possible which, it was. She loves going in and gets excited about going to nursery. All the girls are friendly and welcoming. They have lots of different play areas, role play, messy play and construction just to name a few. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since going to Little lions and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

My son has been attending nursery since he was 7 months old. He is now 2 and a half years and loves it. The staff are so caring and plan lots of activities. He has learnt lots of new skills and his speech is progressing well. He has a fantastic bond with his key worker. All the team are helpful and can't do enough to support everyone. If we have any more children Little Lions is where they will go.

Little Lions is an excellent setting which provides care, love and education for all children attending. We have been delighted since our daughter joined at 9 months old (she is now almost 2!) The team are exceptionally kind and supportive to both children and parents. Our daughter loves Little Lions and so do we.

They have looked after my grandson with care as he has difficulty with many things. They don't listen when we've asked to stop his naps but do help with giving medicines during the time he's there.

My little girl who is 2 has been with her little lions family since January, and she loves being there. She has come on so so much in the last few months. Singing nursery rhymes to us, telling us about all the fun things she does indoors and outdoors, and all the girls who work there are brilliant and very friendly. Thank you, and very highly recommend xxxx
