Reviews

6.7 Tinies Finchley Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.731)

The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Tinies Finchley Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tinies Finchley Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.458 for Tinies Finchley Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.458

  • 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 2.273 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tinies Finchley Day Nursery is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.545 , then divided by 2 = 0.273

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

Reviewer Connection to Tinies Finchley Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    6

My child has been attending this nursery for the past 4 years and will be leaving soon. So this review is based on services over time. I am very pleased with Tinies Finchley Day Nursery and the progress made and work done over the years. What I feel makes Tinies Finchley Day Nursery stand out is that the Manager and Deputy Manager in particular, listen to parents and try to assist where and whenever possible; they work with you to help in your child's individual development.

I like how they integrate the space at David Lloyd facilities next door for additional activities, including tennis and soft play yet still safeguarding the children. The management are constantly working on improvements to make this nursery better and this is very much appreciated. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a nursery space.

Tinies is a brilliant nursery. My daughter loves her nursery days and cannot wait to arrive and begin her day there. The staff are so loving and attentive to her needs. The activities on a daily basis are extremely stimulating and well thought out.

We are extremely happy with the excellent care our children have received at this nursery and have frequently recommend it to many of our friends.
This nursery also makes excellent use of all the additional spaces attached to the local sports club (ie. Tennis courts, playing field, soft play etc) which is fantastic.

Our son has been attending from 18 months and will be 'graduating' this Summer. We feel so sad to leave the nursery as our son has loved his time there. He always looks forward to going and is excited to tell us how he's spent his days. The staff are loving, welcoming, efficient and helpful. The activities and facilities - including use of the indoor and outdoor sports areas - are fantastic, and have included weekly French and tennis classes. We've seen our son develop fantastically during his time, and we have received help and support from the staff above and beyond expectations. Highly recommend this nursery.

Love the staff in Sunflowers who look after the children! My child is very happy to go in every day and misses it when not there.
Thank you. That is the most important thing for us as parents.

Not sure how much learning is done - hard to tell, would like my child to write name by now and have a better understanding of phonics before school, and she is capable, but it's fine and not something I'm overly concerned with.

A wonderful Nursery - the staff are very professional, friendly and really show a genuine care for all the children. It offers a good structure of activities and variation - the music sessions are very popular with my son!
