Reviews

9.8 Oaklands Littlebrook Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.792)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Oaklands Littlebrook Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oaklands Littlebrook Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.792 for Oaklands Littlebrook Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.792

  • 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 Oaklands Littlebrook Nursery is based on 6 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 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5.4 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.

After viewing many nurseries for my son I knew the minute I stepped into Littlebrooks it was the right one for us. The staff are all lovely, very attentive towards the children and fun to be around. They got to know my son and his ways very quickly and were brilliant the first couple of weeks when he was settling in.

On a couple of occasions, I've needed extra days/ hours for my son which they were able to accommodate without any hesitations.

The outdoor space is amazing as is the surrounding area to which the nursery is situated in, it feels secure and secluded which puts my mind at ease each time I drop him off.
I have recommended the nursery already to a friend and her child starts in September.

We find this nursery to offer excellent childcare in many aspects. Firstly it is very small (under 30 children capacity I think) and in a lovely peaceful setting with a play garden with activities for when the weather is good. Inside the building has been newly renovated this year and is split over two floors with a good selection of toys and activities to keep the children entertained.

The team of ladies that work here are very kind and genuinely engage with the children, we have been very impressed with how knowledgeable they are and flexible they have been with requests. Our 8-month old who attends full-time and our 4 year old who has attended a few sessions over the summer holidays seem genuinely happy. Our older daughter speaks fondly of the time she spends here and the many learning activities she does each day. She also comments that she really enjoys the food! All in all, we are very happy with Littlebrook Oaklands.

My son absolutely loves coming to nursery. As this was the first time I was leaving him it has been such a huge relief seeing his excitement when we pull up to the gates.
The staff are absolutely fantastic and have a genuine affection for every child, they are very good at catering for the individual needs of each child
They do something new and exciting every day helping the children develop new skills and interests. The nursery is always immaculate and bright with many different areas for the children to explore. My son is happiest outside and he loves it in the garden playing with the various apparatus
It's great when I pick him up getting the detailed feedback about his day and what he's been up too
Leaving him was never going to be easy but it has been made so much better knowing he is in safe hands and is happy!
I couldn't recommend Oaklands enough!

I am extremely happy with Oaklands Littlebrook Nursery. The staff look after my 22 months son in the same way that I would. He is supported and loved throughout his day at the nursery. The other babies are also of a calm and kind nature, therefore, I feel happy that he will be playing safely and learning nice things from each other and their carers.
It's been a fantastic experience all in all. X

Overall Oaklands is an excellent nursery with a variety of activities on offer for the children to enjoy.
It is wonderful to see at first hand that my son is keen to see his friends and get involved in all the activities which are on offer in a small and caring environment.
In the mornings, the children have the opportunity to be independent by carrying their own bag to their peg, hang up their coats and sit down and tuck into a tasty breakfast.
The staff are also very approachable and keen to support all the children to become independent as they prepare for busy school lives ahead.
I, therefore, thoroughly recommend Oaklands to you all.

I am very happy with Oaklands, Littlebrook as my son's first nursery.
As he's 21 months old and has only ever been at home with me, I was a bit nervous at first. But my mind was soon put to rest by the lovely ladies at the nursery. I love that it's a small nursery, with only a few children (however it will probably grow in numbers soon).
It gives me peace of mind that my son is getting nearly as much attention as he would do at home. They provide good, healthy snacks and lunches which is fantastic. And so far the daily activities have also been varied and interesting.
