  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Adventurers Nursery 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 4.933 for Little Adventurers Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (224 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.933

    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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Adventurers Nursery 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 10.4 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.

Little Adventurers Nursery is a home from home. We love that it is so family orientated. Our little boy absolutely loves going to nursery and as a parent, this is so reassuring.
I honestly believe it's because the manager and her staff make it such a warm, friendly, fun and caring place.
It's great that the nursery organises family days out, this has meant that we have been able to meet our little boys friends and parents.
Because of this, we have formed good friendships within the nursery.
We would 100% recommend the nursery to other parents.

We are so pleased that your little boy enjoys his days at nursery and we would like to thank you for taking the time to write this heartfelt review for us. It is wonderful that as parents you can see our staff truly put children at the centre of all we do at Little Adventurers - we only recruit staff of the highest calibre who both understand and work to our nursery ethos. Our parent engagement is amazing; building strong relationships with our families is something we are particularly proud of with our Nursery Community Days, Parents Forum Meetings, Parents meals out, Parent Workshops & 1st Aid Courses to name a few. Thank you once again for this testimonial and we look forward to many more adventures with your little one at nursery.

Little Adventurers has created a fantastic environment for my children to learn and grow. I never worry about leaving my children as I know they will have so much fun and great care. The staff are an asset to Little Adventurers and both my girls love to go to nursery and I have great pleasure when they run off to their carers or friends without looking back. It makes me feel most at ease. All staff work tirelessly to help the children and create a fun learning environment.

Thank you so much, Samantha for this wonderful testimonial - we are so pleased that parents appreciate our fantastic staff team whom we work so hard to carefully recruit and support in their career development. We are proud of them too and heartfelt reviews like this help them to know how much their efforts mean to parents who feel reassured leaving their little ones in our care. We hope your little girls enjoy their continued adventure with us and into primary school on the next step of their learning journey! Thank you from all the team.

A great setting with lovely garden and facilities.
Adventurers has a family feel when you walk through the door.
Everyone there knows your child, not just those who look after them.
There is always laughter and stories of great fun and adventure at the end of each day: Cooking, park trips, making things, hatching chicks, seeing butterflies grow and so much more.
Not your usual nursery, something unique and special, a childhood they cherish with fond memories we will take away.

Little Adventurers is simply wonderful.
It is such a homely surround with the most fantastic, supportive and nurturing staff.
Both my 1 and 4-year-olds are so settled and happy here and can't wait to get there in the morning.
The daily emails and newsletter are a fantastic bonus too.

Thank you, Kelly, for your lovely review of our nursery. It is wonderful that parents always comment on our fantastic staff team who work hard to have new and exciting adventures every day with our children! We really appreciate you taking the time to review us and we are so pleased that our ethos shines through to parents every day.

My son has been attending for 2 years and it is a magical place. Children are cherished by all the staff, who are kind, patient, fully engaged, knowledgeable and full of energy. My son knows he is safe and his boundaries are very clear. I moved him from another setting and Little Adventurers is far superior. The facilities are fantastic, the rooms are well equipped as is the large garden. The manager is akin to the pied piper, children follow her around and hang on her every word as if transfixed by her loveliness. The menu is brilliant, my son eats far better than me! The children enjoy trips to the park, the duck pond and the shops. They have been visited by lots of interesting professionals from the police to nurses. They have also learnt about science and nature first hand, looking after hatching eggs and tadpoles. Music sessions and football lessons are also included. I live a 5 min walk from another nursery but chose to drive over 2 miles and pay station parking in order for my son to attend.

Chris Denton, Business Development Manager at Little Adventurers Nursery responded to this review on 10 Apr 2017:

Wow Linda! We can't thank you enough for this beautiful review of our nursery and I say 'our' because we are a family run nursery. The words and sentiments mean such a lot and we are so pleased that your little boy is enjoying his early year's adventures with us.

Our staff team will be over the moon to read the above and we are really proud of their dedication. This review speaks volumes and we thank you for placing trust in us to take care of your little boy - it is so important that parents feel confident that their children are having a happy, fulfilled and safe time at nursery.

Thank you for taking the time to write this - we really appreciate your testimonial.

We joined Little Adventurers (I say 'joined', as you do feel part of an extended nursery family) when it opened because it was close to home/a good location - wow, did we luck out! The place is great. The staff are wonderful - kind, caring, patient and attentive - and clearly the manager has magical powers as the children all seem to adore her. My eldest still loves to drop by even now that she is at school and my soon-to-be-three year old is happy to go in each day (in fact, she's often put out that the nursery is not open on the weekend). I especially like that not only are the children taken out regularly to places such as to the playground, local shops, on the bus, but that outside music, dance, sports, animal activities are brought into the nursery to keep them entertained too. The community days out are also such a great idea to get to know other parents and children. I couldn't recommend Little Adventurers enough!

Thank you so much for your lovely review Sarah; we are so pleased that our family ethos really shined through from the beginning for you and your family as this is something we strive hard to achieve at our nursery. We are immensely proud of our nursery manager and of all our staff who we believe are an elite team! - they all enjoy working with us at our nursery with a difference. The manager was delighted to welcome so many families on Saturday to our Nursery Community Day and it is, as you say, a great way for parents to get to know each other as well as giving the children a fun time outside together. Thank you once again for your wonderful feedback, we really appreciate parents taking the time to do this.

My son bangs on the door to his room to be let in every morning with a huge smile on his face. I feel happy knowing that he is in a safe and homely environment with people who genuinely care for him and I feel relaxed leaving him knowing he is happy and having fun. The staff are amazing - their enthusiasm and energy are at the heart of this nursery and set it apart from others. They also arrange family days out, hold regular forums and really make the effort to get to know the parents and to make them feel part of the nursery. I love the email I receive at the end of the day with a report of what he has been up to and full of photos which often make me laugh out loud on the train. My older son attended the nursery from when it opened until September when he left for school – his teacher has commented on how impressed they were with his reading, writing and counting skills and his general behaviour which is largely down to the staff at Little Adventurers. Thank you.

Thank you so much, Julie, for writing this wonderful review of our nursery. It really means so much to the whole team to know that parents feel so reassured at leaving their little ones in our care knowing they will be happy, safe and cared for in a loving and supportive way throughout their day. We are very proud of our professional and dedicated staff team and it is lovely to hear how our children and parents love them too! It is also fantastic to hear how well big brother is getting on at school - It is our aim to instil a love of learning in all our children for their continued learning adventures into Primary School. Thank you so much again and we look forward to seeing you all at our forthcoming Nursery Community Day on 18th March!

My little boy has been with Little Adventurers since the day it opened and I am so impressed. Their care and compassion make them stand out from above the rest. The quality and variety of activities they do with the children are always entertaining and engaging for the appropriate age of the child. I could go on and on - highly recommended. Go see for yourself!

Many thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review for us - we appreciate all feedback very much. We strive to create a loving, supportive and stimulating environment but always with care for our children at the centre of everything we do. It is wonderful that as a parent you appreciate our varied activities and extra-curriculum and we look forward to continuing our learning adventurers with your little one throughout his time with his Little Adventurers family. Thank you, Emma, we will share this review with our staff team.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough! Being a first-time mum of a daughter who had a tough start to life, I was so anxious about leaving her but from the moment I stepped foot in Little Adventurers Nursery, I knew she would be looked after. The staff genuinely care about the children and they are always happy and enthusiastic. They always have the time to talk to you and my daughter loves, not only her key worker but the other carers in her room. I love the daily updates - it's so great to have a feel of what she has been up to during the day. The monthly newsletters are also something I look forward to. The activities they put on for the children is exemplary - it's hard to believe all the things she gets involved in throughout her day. The garden space, the toys, the food she is given, is all of the highest quality. I can't believe how lucky we are. The nursery has such a family feel. I can honestly say that my daughter's time in nursery enhances her childhood.

Our staff genuinely understand how difficult it is for especially a first-time mum to leave their precious little one at nursery and we are so pleased that as a parent you feel her time with us is rich and stimulating; helping her to develop and learn.

My son attended this nursery and I wouldn't send him anywhere else. He absolutely loves it. I find all the staff are very friendly. They all go that extra mile to ensure my son is not only safe but also very happy. They are like his second family.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate this feedback very much. We strive to build loving and supportive relationships throughout our homely nursery and it is lovely to hear how much your son enjoys his time with us. We look forward to sharing many more adventures with him.

An extremely professional nursery with excellent staff and facilities. It was the one nursery I visited where I felt completely comfortable that my child would be properly cared for and looked after, whilst also being provided with a vast array of activities to really stimulate her mind. She regularly comes home and tells of her mornings of play with shaving foam/painting with different items and play that is so creative and fun. She talks about her friends there, playing outdoors and general enjoyment. I couldn't recommend them enough.

What a great testimonial! Thank you, Lisa, for completing this for us and it is so good to hear your comments about our activities at nursery and how much your little one enjoys herself here. Our aim is to have new adventures every day to encourage learning through play whilst building loving and supporting relationships with all our children so that they feel secure and happy in their nursery home. Many thanks once again we appreciate this feedback very much.

“Little Adventurers Nursery" is a setting offering outstanding care and learning to the children.  Our little girl absolutely loves her time there and I feel so reassured as a mother leaving her with the staff who are all so friendly, caring and professional.  From our first visit to view the nursery, we knew this was where we wanted our baby to go; apart from the excellent staff team, the rooms are all so light and airy and the garden is wonderful.  There are always such creative activities going on in the baby room and I am really impressed with the healthy meals.  Our baby has thrived in her development and I could not be happier with the care she receives here.

Thank you very much for your lovely review and we are so pleased that your little one is progressing so well and enjoying her time at nursery. We strive to have good engagement with parents and carers and it is wonderful to receive feedback. Look out for our forthcoming Nursery Community Day when we hope to bring lots of our Little Adventurers families together for an outdoor adventure!

After visiting what seemed like every nursery in the local area, I knew immediately that Little Adventurers was the nursery my son would attend! From the very first visit, staff have always been welcoming and it is obvious that the children are at the centre of everything they do. The care they show for each child is second to none - they know the children so well and really take the time to build relationships with them (and their families) so activities follow the children interests - last week's highlight was a visit from a fire engine and going to see some diggers! I was especially attracted to the 'discovery' ethos of the nursery; my son loves the outdoors and has daily access to the garden as well as walks in the local area. The email that is sent at the end of each day with info about meals, nappies and sleep is greatly received especially the photos which provide a great talking point at bedtime and make me feel a little less guilty about leaving him knowing he's had so much fun!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It is always wonderful to hear feedback from parents, especially when our ethos of placing children at the heart of all we do clearly shines out in our care and activities. Our garden and learning outdoors is again another big part of our approach as we love to take the children on community adventurers whenever possible. We are so pleased your little boy is enjoying his adventures with us and our staff team will be thrilled to read your kind words. Thank you.

My 2-year-old has been going to Little Adventurers for 11 months and he loves it. It was the first nursery I visited; I got such a good feeling from it that I didn't see any other places. I've been very happy with my decision. One of my favourite things about the nursery is that the children go out daily. The nursery has an outdoor area but they also take children out for walks. The range of activities is amazing. A lot of them are planned (messy play, sensory activities, arranged visits, etc) but the staff are also creative and make good use of the surroundings. My boy is now obsessed with diggers after seeing a construction site while out walking. I am happy to leave him with any member of staff. They are all friendly, caring, approachable and professional and they do everything they can to make sure that the children are happy and content. My son runs to the nursery and it's obvious he is extremely happy there. As a mother, I couldn't ask for more. Thank you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and wonderful testimonial. We value and appreciate all feedback from parents and love sharing these with our professional staff team. Both impromptu and planned outings are very much part of our ethos and it is always lovely to see how inspired the children are by these and the learning that comes from them.

My daughter has been attending Little Adventurers for the last 5 months since she was 6.5 months old. This is an amazing nursery.
I cannot speak more highly of the staff there - they are extremely caring, knowledgeable and always welcoming. My daughter absolutely loves it and without fail has a big smile on her face every time we drop her off.
The range of activities provided is exceptional - from baby yoga and painting through to an inside paddling pool party. The nursery strives to provide new experiences for the children e.g. Off-site visits to the park for a summer picnic or visiting the local church to look at the Christmas tree. I get a comprehensive daily report from the nursery outlining how my daughter has spent her day, what she has eaten and when she slept etc...
I particularly appreciate the photos they send me each evening- this gives me invaluable insight into what she has been up to and really helps me to feel that I am not missing out on those fun filled moments.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us and it is so lovely to read your wonderful comments which we will share with our fantastic staff team.

As a first time mother sending my daughter to the nursery was a very daunting task, however from the minute we entered Little Adventurers, I knew it was the place for us. The staff are wonderful, the nursery is bursting with colour and fun activities are packed into every nook and cranny! My daughter took a while to settle in but I was kept fully in the loop and the patience we received was incredible, and I merrily go off to work knowing she is safe and well cared for. I get a mini update at the end of each day telling me activities, meals ate, nap time and a few pictures and gives me the daily reassurance that the staff at Little Adventurers are my knights in shining armour. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. Thank you to everyone at Little Adventurers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review for us. We understand that for parents entrusting someone to look after their little one is one of the biggest and hardest decisions you can make. The heart of our ethos at Little Adventurers is to provide loving support to all our little ones, giving them the best start in their learning adventure. Your lovely comments will be shared with all our fantastic staff team, thank you again.

Being our first born and feeling anxious about returning to work, a lot of research went into finding our son the perfect nursery.
The homely feel and the warmth of the staff were the first things that attracted us.
But the most reassuring thing is after just a few weeks, how comfortable our son is there. This really shows my husband and I how much our son enjoys himself and how well looked after he is.
The staff are all so welcoming & really go the extra mile.
A great, great nursery!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review for us and we are so pleased that our homely ethos shines through. We strive to provide a caring and loving environment for all our children so that our little one's feel settled quickly and have a happy, fun and stimulating time with us. We will share your wonderful comments with our professional staff team - thank you.

Nothing to say but we are extremely satisfied with the Little Adventurers. We were convinced to choose this nursery from the first day when we met the manager. She knows exactly how to introduce herself and the nursery to the parents and we are confident to say that her professionalism can be confirmed by how all the staff work.
Our daughter has made massive improvements since she joined "Little Adventurers" and this could have only been achieved by the great work everyone's done with her. Every day we receive an email from the nursery showing all the activities our daughter did through the day.
It is a very welcome environment and it is a big relief to see how the children are tailored in their steps toward the next coming school years.
We appreciate the cost is a bit high but it's worth every penny when you see how professional and safe the environment is.
If I had to rate the "Little Adventurers", my vote would be Outstanding.

Chris Denton, Business Development Manager at Little Adventurers Nursery responded to this review on 27 Feb 2017:

Many thanks for taking the time to complete this review for us. We are very proud of our highly experienced nursery manager, deputy and all of our staff team at Little Adventurers. We are so pleased to read your lovely comments and it is wonderful that parents can see that we place the care of our children at the centre of everything we do. Our day rates are actually below that of surrounding day care nurseries in the area which we hope places us in in a good light for local parents. We are so pleased to hear that your daughter has come on in leaps and bounds since joining us and we look forward to continuing her exciting adventure.

Our little one has been going to the nursery for almost 2 years and I could not have found a better nursery. This is his second nursery locally. The staff are equally excellent with the children and the parents. This nursery understands and practices the best quality in terms of care, development and safety of the children. There is always someone available to talk to if you have any concerns and the staff make sure that they take your requests (medical, development, language...) very seriously. The main aim for my child at the nursery is for him to feel safe, to enjoy every minute, to have activities that promote his development, and lastly to look forward to his nursery day. This is exactly what Little Adventurers do...and more!
