Reviews

9.7 Flutterbies Day Nursery & Pre-school has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.697)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Flutterbies Day Nursery & Pre-school 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Flutterbies Day Nursery & Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 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 4.749 for Flutterbies Day Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (135 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.749

  • 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 4.948 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Flutterbies Day Nursery & Pre-school is based on 11 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 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0.948

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

Staff are lovely. The setting is adequate for purpose. It is clean.
When my son first started his view of nursery had been stressful (from a previous setting) he had been at a previous nursery for a year and hadn't settled and cried non-stop. Within a couple of weeks at Flutterbies Day Nursery he had settled, was happy and staff got to know him even though he was only there one day a week. He now attends 15 hours a week and he loves it and we are more than happy!

In our experience, I have found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. They have been very informative with regards to my son's development and have been a key driving force in encouraging positive behaviour and introduced some healthy habits.
In addition, my son suffers from eczema and the staff have always made sure his skin is kept moisturised.

My daughter enjoys her time at Flutterbies Day Nursery & Pre-school, she loves going to nursery every day.
The staff are really helpful and friendly. My daughter's learning and development has improved very well. She never says she doesn't want to go to nursery even when she did not speak English. She always felt part of a group, that has helped her to build new relationships and show her independence and confidence. I feel very comfortable leaving her here knowing she is happy and well looked after.

My little girl has been coming to Flutterbies for four months and attends the baby room. We are always welcomed in with smiles from all staff. My child is always happy when I drop off and pick her up. I am always given a great feedback, telling me about what she has been doing and how well she has eaten and drank. They have been working with me to bring my child forward and reach her milestones. Thank you Flutterbies, a very happy mummy.

My two children settled in very quickly and warmed to the staff. They have a wonderful time and fulfilling day. Both have a happy greeting from staff and on pick up are always content and happy. All staff are so friendly and have time for the children and clearly have a lovely relationship with them. They know the girls little habits and comforts and go out of their way to accommodate them. Good management. They know our girls so well and the girls talk about them at home.

Angela Brady

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2017

Description:

Hi there,

My name is Angela and I joined Tommies Childcare in May 2017. I started out at Westhill Corner Day Nursery in Coventry before moving to Flutterbies in September 2017 to take the position as Deputy Manager.

A strong belief of mine is giving children the best possible start in life, and providing them with a stimulating and comfortable environment to enjoy new experiences.

Every child has the right to an enjoyable early years education and to gain valuable skills that they may carry through life with them.

I have worked in the childcare sector for over 9 years, 6 of which have been in management positions. I originally started doing voluntary work in various nurseries and schools while I completed my studies, and have gained a lot of knowledge through the different roles I've taken on along the years.

I'd only be too happy to show you around Flutterbies, so please feel free to give us a call.
