  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.707 for Four Brooks Day Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (247 Excellents x 5) + (88 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 341 Ratings = 4.707

  • 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 4.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Four Brooks Day Nursery & Pre-school is based on 12 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.714

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

Generally, I have work meetings that clash with childcare. The OOSC is very flexible and the staff are always on hand to support. My daughter enjoys coming and I feel happy she is in good hands.

There is a stable management team in place which contributes to the consistent style of delivery.
The nursery/after school club are very flexible in accommodating additional sessions, even the little notice which shows that they work in partnership with parents.
If any concerns are raised them they are followed through accordingly and efficiently.

Very pleased with the nursery, facilities and the staff. Always so accommodating, caring and approachable. My 3-year-old son has come along way with his learning and social skills and this is down to the care and commitment of the staff who treat him like an individual. Choosing this nursery after viewing others was the best decision we made for my son and us, his parents.

Overall, I am very happy with the care/services provided by the nursery. My son enjoys his time there. He gets on very well with the staff. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The nursery is very flexible to meet our needs, for example, any changes in days of care. This is very helpful as both myself and my husband work full time.

I am extremely overhelmed, impressed, proud and satisfied with Tommies Childcare being my son's primary carer until now.
They have done an amazing job helping me with my son's education, growth and development.
Every day my son came home he always had something new to share that he learnt at nursery.
The nursery are very organised, trustworthy, respectful, patient and understanding. Most of all they are very loving, tender and caring with my son.
I am happy and proud to have given him the chance to experience his toddler to preschool stages here.

The manager and her team have been brilliant, looking after my daughter. It started in the baby room when she was 18months old and then toddler room where it continued in a lovely friendly manner.
We feel our daughter has come on load and is well equipped to start nursery in September.
Thanks to the staff in the preschool room.
Thank you all so much for everything.

My son has been attending Tommies in Holbrooks for 6 months and after a bit of a tearful period he now really loves it. The staff really take care of the children and are very helpful and supportive (especially with potty training!). My son is particularly fond of the deputy manager and one other member of staff and gets really excited when he sees them. I would happily recommend this nursery to other parents.

My child loves attending nursery. Her key worker is very attentive and has worked with us to help her to settle.
The activities that they do are always well planned and child led. The outside space is small but very well stocked with resources and is bright and colourful. The staff met and discuss our child's progress at parents evening.
My child has grown in confidence and has made many new friends since she started.

My little boy has been at Tommies Children's Centre for 5 months now and my return to work could not have been easier. The staff are very kind and caring and we felt very welcome right from his induction. He loves going to nursery every day as he enjoys the different activities they do and the interaction he experiences from the other children and staff. The facilities are very good and the nursery is always clean. The staff are always looking out for his well-being and know his characteristics well enough to know when he is not feeling himself. It really feels like he has an extension to his family and I would recommend Tommies Children Centre to other families.

Our child has been at Tommies since 5 months old, He seems to really enjoy nursery and has become confident around other children. The team encourage his interests and find activities that he will enjoy. He is now about to go into the older group and we have had lots of communication through his key worker and feel more confident that he will settle and enjoy himself.

I feel happy leaving my son at this nursery as the staff are really friendly and know what they're doing, compared to other nurseries where the staff seemed more immature.My sons carer is really good and he has bonded with her, I feel that she genuinely cares about him and his welfare. The manager is also very accommodating and efficient. If I had anything negative to say the only thing would be the stairs, they are very steep and I get nervous carrying baby down.

I cannot recommend Tommies enough! They are excellent. Since the first settling in period, I have never had any doubt that my son is anything but happy, safe, and in a clean, stimulating environment. The staff are attentive and caring, the baby room is fantastic and my son can't wait to get there in the mornings...what more could you want?!

Description:

My name is Mel Hughes, and I am the Nursery Manager at Tommies Children's Centre.

I believe partnerships with parents is key to provide children with enriched learning and development opportunities. My vision for this nursery is to provide outstanding early years experiences so that children can thrive.

I have two children myself, my oldest has just started studying his degree at University, whilst my youngest is in Year 5 at school. We spend lots of time together as a family, usually playing football. I'm part of a ladies team and I also coach my son's team.

I have more than 10 years experience working with children, 8 of which were in management roles. I have a degree in Early Years and I began studying towards a BA Honours degree in Early Education this year.

I look forward to building on and maintaining the wonderful parent partnerships that are in place here at Tommies.

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2017

Description:

Hello,

I'm Rachel and I'm the Deputy Manager here at Four Brooks Day Nursery.

I've always believed children should be offered safe environments where they can be nurtured and develop, whilst being given the individual opportunities to grow and learn in their own space and time.

I've worked within the childcare sector for more than 15 years, where I started as a Nursery Practitioner. Since then, I have helped to develop a nursery which was graded as Outstanding by Ofsted, and I also supported children with additional needs.

I believe I have a sound knowledge in both roles and thrive when I'm able to see children fulfil what they set out to do. I have a firm understanding of what it takes to be an outstanding nursery setting.

I joined Four Brooks in December 2017 to support the nursery with planning and developing the environments to allow children to learn, explore and discover their interests.
