Reviews

9.8 Little Barn Owls Pre-school has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.816)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Little Barn Owls Pre-school is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Barn Owls Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 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 4.983 for Little Barn Owls Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.983

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Barn Owls Pre-school is based on 5 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.833

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

We love Little Barn Owls and wouldn't send our child anywhere else. In the short space that she has attended, she has come on leaps and bounds. Her key worker is amazing and my daughter talks about her all the time. All of the staff go above and beyond and my daughter loves coming to pre-school. Thank you for all your hard work.

We can not recommend this pre-school enough. Our son was apprehensive to begin with and the way all the staff supported and encouraged him was outstanding. He is now very settled and happy and looks forward to coming every day.

Little Barn Owls staff have all been so accommodating of my son who started in September. They have nurtured him and helped his confidence and development. My son now talks about activities he has enjoyed and is starting to socialise with more confidence.

My daughter attends Little Barn Owls 3 days a week and she absolutely loves it. She's always excited to go and loves all the staff there. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable and take an interest in what she's been up to at home. At pick up time, the staff always tell my wife or me what my daughter has done during the day, which helps us to interact more with our daughter on the way home.
The days seem to be full of interesting and fun things for the children to do.

I can't recommend this nursery enough.
