  • 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 4.417 for Little Elms Daycare Catford is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.417

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 1.736 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Elms Daycare Catford is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.222 , then divided by 2 = 0.111

Reviewer Connection to Little Elms Daycare Catford

  • Mother of Child

I'm so glad that we chose Little Elms Daycare Catford for our daughter. She started in June and has gone from strength to strength in the last few months. She is a shy child who is wary of strangers but is becoming more confident by the week. Her language and social skills are both improved. The staff are excellent and supportive to the child as well as the family. She looks forward to attending and I feel reassured that she is well looked after. There is a good range of activities and toys and they make good use of the outside space, encouraging outdoor play in all weathers. She often comes home clutching some artwork and telling me about what she got up to with her friends. They receive nutritious meals cooked on the premises.There is good communication from staff regarding what is happening generally in the nursery and what the children have been learning. The facilities are clean and well maintained. I would wholeheartedly recommend this nursery.

Our little one has been at Little Elms Catford full time for the past 7 weeks and I can say so far so good.
Good bonds have been built with the careworker and our little one reaches to the careworker most of the time upon drop off and always seems happy upon pick up. On the odd occasion when there are tears, the staff know how to distract from me leaving and the tears normally stop within a minute. Our child appears to be eating and sleeping well whilst at nursery now so has relaxed into the daily routine, thanks to those looking after him. The team seem to spend a varying amount of time on different play and learning activities (including brief French singing classes) and we often receive fun pictures at the end of the day.
All staff are friendly and communicate well. There were a couple of tiny admin problems upon opening but all appears to be running smoothly now. The facilities are good and clean as all brand new. The weekly menus seem good and varied.
Currently happy.
