Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.859 for Tiny Tots Day Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.859

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiny Tots Day Nursery School is based on 6 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.500

  • 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 Tiny Tots Day Nursery School

  • Mother of Child
    6

I am a mum of four and there is a big age gap between my youngest and her siblings. My eldest son didn't go to nursery as I was a stay at home mum. I was really worried about leaving my daughter in childcare, even more so as she was born with cleft lip and palate and also has allergies.

However, Tiny Tots is a great place and I couldn't have been more relaxed. My daughter loves it every day, the staff have helped both her and I so very much. They really feel like an extra part of the family and my daughter is very much part of the Tiny Tots family. Words cannot begin to say how much I would highly recommend Tiny Tots.

Both of my daughters have benefited greatly from attending Tiny Tots. The availability of term time only provision has fitted perfectly with my work as I am at home with my children during the school holidays. My oldest daughter has now moved on to school and it is clear that Tiny Tots gave her a strong social and educational foundation and a great attitude to exploration and learning.

My youngest daughter attends Tiny Tots currently and absolutely loves it. It is clear that the staff members see each child as an individual and encourage their unique characters to grow. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a nurturing atmosphere. This combined with the homely feel of the building and the attractive and stimulating outdoor environment make Tiny Tots feel like a home from home for the children. I have always trusted that my children will be safe and happy for Tiny Tots.

My daughter absolutely loves going to Tiny Tots- the staff are warm and friendly and the building and gardens are brilliant. I look forward to hearing about all the things she's been up to each day, there's a good variety of activities and I like the fact that they get to go outside even if the weather isn't ideal. Lots of crafts, singing, and excitement for her whilst learning to socialise and interact with children and adults alike. Very happy!

We visited a few nurseries for our 2-year-old deaf son and knew straight away Tiny Tots was for him. He was extremely comfortable on his visit and even blew kisses to the teachers when we left. We have not been proven wrong since then, as the care and attention he receives is excellent. They have even managed to get him to sit down to eat his meals! His speech and understanding have made an amazing improvement since he has attended (March 17) and I always look forward to reading his daily report sheet on what activities he has completed and meals he has eaten!!
The nursery is set in an old farmhouse and has a lovely outdoor area. (our son loves to be outdoors) The rooms are very spacious and each class has a small group of children (important to ensure our son doesn't have too much noise around him). His teacher of the deaf works closely with the nursery to ensure he has the correct support and has also commented on how perfect the nursery was him.
I would highly recommend this nursery.

Our son has attended Tiny Tots for almost 4 years. We initially chose Tiny Tots as it offers term time only places, which suited us well. We like the fact all the staff have been there for a long time, and the care our son has received throughout his years there has been excellent. The Nursery has been very supportive of us as a family, the staff genuinely care and are very approachable. The recent changes that have been made only make Tiny Tots an even better place to send our son. Tiny Tots is a lovely nursery and we would not hesitate to recommend to our friends.

Having an autistic son who struggles so much with his education, looking for a placement for my asthmatic daughter was scary. My daughter was nine months when she started Tiny Tots, our first visit felt as if I was in a home from home. I was greeted by amazing ladies with the majority being older than your average, just out of college nursery practitioners, this made me so comfortable and at ease. I decided TT was the right place for my child to attend and see through her early year's journey.We had a number of settling in visits, having not long finished breastfeeding and moving over to bottle feeding, the ladies were so understanding. I made way too many (looking back) phone calls to ensure she was ok. Every time I was told the exact truth i.e. If she was a little tearful or if she was having a wonderful time playing with a great selection of toys/books. Throughout her progress (she's four now) she has come on leaps and bounds, all the staff sing very much from the same hymn sheet and are just as lovely as one another.
