The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Treetops (Biggleswade) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Treetops (Biggleswade) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 3 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 4.736 for Treetops (Biggleswade) is calculated as follows: ( (113 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.736

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.634 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Treetops (Biggleswade) is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 22.4 positive Reviews (112 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 22.4 Target = 0.134

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

Fantastic place to bring children, our son has developed so much and the staff are warm and friendly.
They've kept us informed of how our son is developing. The staff at this childcare do really love the children.
They don't mind if you call up to check on your little person.
The staff have been amazing with looking after our son, there is no shortage of kisses and cuddles. The difficult decision of having to go back to work was made easier by the committed staff.

I have recently become the Manager of the setting. Before I started I had fantastic settling in sessions which allowed me to have some time with my children and their new key person. I felt very welcome and at ease. My session was not rushed and I felt I had time to get to know the fantastic practitioners that I was leaving my children with. Both of my children settled in very quickly. Of course they were a little unsettled at first, but after the first week this improved dramatically and I cannot get my eldest child of 33 months to leave in the evening which shows he is extremely happy and stimulated within the nursery environment.

I feel the nursery is the right place for my children. There is lots of space inside and outside for the children to explore, the staff are enthusiastic and plan activities that support my children's learning well, based upon their interests. The food always looks appetising and my older child enjoys being independent and serving themselves.

The care for my son is outstanding. He settling very quickly and loves his key workers in the babies room.
Always given bottles at the right time, sleep limits adhered to. An outside area specifically for babies would be nice.

This is an excellent nursery. We have since moved to another part of the country for work reasons, but our daughter thoroughly enjoyed her time at Treetops and misses the wonderful carers who put so much time, energy and enthusiasm into looking after her in the Bear Cubs and Little Monkeys rooms. The staff are wonderful and always make time to welcome the children on arrival and give them a cuddle even if they are busy with other children at the time. There are lots of different activities, and they do really clever things like visit pet shops or other places so that the children get some variety during the day. The facilities are excellent and have recently been refurbished. This was the first nursery we ever used so we didn't quite know how lucky we were at the time - but having moved on, we can only wish everywhere was such fabulous value!

The girls in my daughters room are very calm and friendly and show genuine love for children in their care. Despite my daughter being fairly new she is happy to part in the morning with her new key carer.
I can go to work knowing that my 'baby' is being well cared for and loved. The provide special days regularly, the latest being hot chocolate and cookies on the go for morning rush! Yummy!

My son is extremely happy at his nursery. There is a large garden where he spends his time playing and exploring. His day is varied and he always looks forward to going, he has a lovely team of carers who work hard with him to bring his speech along. I work full time and he attends full time too. I go to work knowing he is well cared for and is having a great day. The food is excellent and he is always talking about his food and how he helped lay the table etc. Overall it is an excellent facility and I will be sad when he leaves.
