Reviews

6.5 Aristo-Tots Nursery has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.533)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Aristo-Tots Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Aristo-Tots Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 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 5 for Aristo-Tots Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • 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 1.533 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Aristo-Tots Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 15.2 positive Reviews (76 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 15.2 Target = 0.066 , then divided by 2 = 0.033

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

I cannot praise the team at Aristo-Tots enough. There is a sense of family as soon as you step inside the door and the team go out of their way to make every child and every parent feel important. My son loves the time he spends there and is full of excitement when he tells us about what he's got up to each day. Some days he doesn't want to come home!
All the rooms are large and bright, and always clean, perfect for busy little people who love to run around and explore. One thing that really stood out when we were looking at nurseries was how much they talk to the children. This may sound daft, but this wasn't the case at all the nurseries we visited prior to choosing Aristo-Tots, and we wanted more than someone to just watch our son. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely team at this nursery.
