The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Little Acorns is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Little Acorns in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.667 for Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Little Acorns is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.667

  • 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 4.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Little Acorns is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.317

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

Thank you Michaela for your kind words.

My little boy has been attending the nursery since he was 8 months old and absolutely loves it there, he's now 3. The staff are friendly and caring. They will also work with you if there is a concern with behaviour and report on how things are progressing. There is a whole range of activities to do on a daily basis, whether it's outside/indoor play, messy exploring, forest school, all the music man who my little boy adores. The food is fresh and healthy and it's so tasty my little boy often has 2nd helpings. My little boy is thriving in the environment that the nursery creates, we love them here.

Thankyou Lucy for your kind words

Little Acorns is a wonderful nursery it has helped my son come so far. He has learnt so much as well as social skills. The staff are polite and friendly and go out of their way to help in any way.
They helped me when we first moved here and took my daughter on with short notice before she started school. Both my children love it there it really is one of the best nurseries around.

Thankyou Chloe for your kind words

I can't thank Little Acorns and the staff there enough for the personal care they provide to my girls. My girls have come a long way from crying for me at drop off to saying the staff members are their best friends! The lovely ladies at Little Acorns go above and beyond what I ever expected and I'm forever grateful for the love and attention they provide in my place. My girls are safe, happy and are learning wonderful magical things that they excitedly share with me on our way home :)
Thank you.
