The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Little Me Day Nursery The Coach House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Me Day Nursery The Coach House 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 4.979 for Little Me Day Nursery The Coach House is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.979

  • 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 4.063 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Me Day Nursery The Coach House 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.313

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

Really lovely nursery. I was provided with so much information on my first visit including a really handy Parents Handbook which has lots of general information about how the nursery runs, key policies and procedures that I had to be aware of and housekeeping rules. My child has settled really quickly and I am so pleased with the care and nursery.

I visited the nursery with my 9-month-old son, the reception I received from the staff was surprising and amazing. Everyone was really friendly and just wanted to say hello and welcome my son, which was really important to me! I received lots of detailed information during the show round and most of all, I was extremely impressed with the building itself, what a beautiful environment for young children to be able to play and learn within. It is bright, beautiful and so very spacious with a lovely outdoor area. There are two separate gardens which I particularly loved as it means my baby would be able to play with suitable age appropriate outdoor activities. Would definitely advise other parents to come and have a look around, as I am very excited to enrol my son for September!

This is an excellent nursery. The staff are amazing! So lovely and caring.
We had real trouble finding a suitable nursery for our son. After bad experiences of previous pre-schools and nurseries, Little Me is a breath of fresh air!
They have made us feel so welcome and shown us nothing but kindness and understanding of our son's needs.
I would 100% recommend this nursery. My son absolutely loves going and I am completely happy to leave him as I know he is so well looked after.

Wow, what a nursery. I visited with a friend and we have registered our children to start in September for 30 hours free. I found it really difficult to find a nursery that will accommodate the hours I work and offer my child the funded only sessions. He also has a lot of allergies and I met with their cook who assured me that he will be catered for. The manager showed us around and all the staff seemed friendly and bubbly and were so happy which made all the difference.
