b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.833 for Little Rascals Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.833
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:
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.
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.
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 3.098 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Rascals Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.2 Target = 0.098

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Louise S (Mother of Child) on Monday 21 May 2018. Relates to May 2018.
I now have 2 children at this wonderful nursery! I have recommended Little Rascals to close friends and family - who are also there. I also recommend to anyone I meet and asks me about childcare.
Not only do I know my children are safe and looked after but I also know - and trust - that the staff here all care about the individual characters of my one and three year old - openly enjoying their sense of humour, cheekiness and development.
I trust I will be told if there is a concern just as much as I trust they will follow teaching plans, my own specific instructions and those of the child (as they get more and more bossy!)
The staff and management of the nursery couldn't be more helpful with additional days, changes to details or questions about funding.
Most importantly though, when I ask my daughter, she tells me they love going to preschool. And I have tears from my son when I pick him up!
