Reviews

7.4 Tiny Toes Two has a Review Score of 7.4 (7.409)

The Review Score of 7.4 (maximum of 10) for Tiny Toes Two is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tiny Toes Two in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.992 for Tiny Toes Two is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.992

  • 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 2.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiny Toes Two is based on 7 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.833 , then divided by 2 = 0.417

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

I have two very happy boys at nursery, both joined at around 9 months and my oldest is now 4 and a half. They both really enjoy nursery and always come home talking non stop about all the activities they have done at nursery and armed with drawings and painting. The staff are very good and informative. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Tiny Toes to future parents.

Both my children started this nursery when they were 6 months old and have been happy members of the extended Tiny Toes family ever since. This lovely family business genuinely cares and cherishes each and every one of the children it looks after and the environment feels more like a big family home than 'just' a nursery. It's this element that is so important. The staff are interested and dedicated and the activities the children do each and every day really capture their imaginations, help their learning and development and most importantly allow them to be happy care free children. Whether they are learning French, playing super sport, planting sunflowers or singing you can be sure it has been planned with care and purpose. Every thing the team at Tiny Toes seeks to do is child centred and the management have always gone out of their way to help and be as flexible as possible - they really understand what it is to be a working parent.

My son has attended since the beginning of 2016 and has settled in very quickly to a warm and caring team at Tiny Toes. They have encouraged his sociable nature and provide great activities, messy and musical. He enjoys the food and goes back for seconds. Finger print recognition door entry makes it feel more secure compared to other nurseries. EyLog updates of your child reassures you what fun they're having. Family run making it feel very home away from home.

We chose Tiny Toes because the first room has a ratio of 1:2, rather than 1:3 in most other settings. We also liked their 'all-inclusive' policy so we don't have to provide food, nappies, suncream etc, which you do in some other nurseries.

We've been so happy with our decision. Our daughter is now 2.5 & is doing 2 mornings a week whilst I'm on maternity leave. For financial reasons we needed to reduce her hours & the nursery were happy to accommodate this (temporary) change. So she's still benefitting from football & ballet lessons - no extra charge - which she loves. She also gets a hot lunch - a variety of nutritious meals prepared fresh on site.

We also like that the nursery has two gardens, which the children use every day. One for discovery & planting. The other for more active play.

The staff are friendly, accommodating & get on well with each other, so provide a happy environment for the children. We hope our daughter can attend until she goes to school!

My son has only just started at Tiny Toes but already I am extremely happy with how things are going and the care that has been shown towards my son. All of the staff at Tiny Toes have helped to make me feel completely comfortable leaving my son in their care since day one.

I am very much looking forward to seeing how much my son will progress at nursery which in fact I'm sure he has already!

I have nothing but excellent things to say about Tiny Toes. The staff are amazing and the atmosphere is so welcoming for not only my son, but for myself as a mother. My son loves going and always tells me 'he's had such a lovely time'.
I will now be sending my youngest at 9 months and feel very happy to leave him in their capable hands.
Everything about this nursery is great even down to the maintenance man.
Such a lovely nursery and cannot recommend it more to anyone looking for somewhere friendly with a warm welcoming atmosphere for their children.

My little girl started at Tiny Toes when she was 6 months old back in 2010, she has gone through every stage at Tiny Toes and is now a Big Feet, I am so happy she has had the support of tiny toes to encourage her in her milestones and prepare her for reception! Tiny Toes has a friendly professional manner and always put your child first they feel like an extended family and I am so happy they have been a surrogate mum to my child when I was at work, I trust them completely in their job to care for my child and am always met with a warm smile! Keep up the good work Tiny Toes xxx

My daughter has attended for 4.5 years, she leaves this month. In that time the nursery has provided first class care, I'm so happy with daily activities she undertakes the excellent food and overall social and educational fun she has. Thank you everyone at TT, onto the next chapter better prepared with your help x
