Reviews

9.9 Cotton Tails Too at Rubery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.929)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Cotton Tails Too at Rubery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 58 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cotton Tails Too at Rubery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 25 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 4.929 for Cotton Tails Too at Rubery is calculated as follows: ( (643 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 692 Ratings = 4.929

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cotton Tails Too at Rubery is based on 25 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 25 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target Reached = 1

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

Both of my children have been at Cotton Tails Too from the age of 9 months old. I can not recommended this nursery enough. Outstanding care. All staff go over their duty to ensure the children reach their potential. Thank you Cotton Tails Too for the best learning journey my two children could have ever wished for before starting school.

Thank you for your lovely review.

My son has attended Cotton Tails Too from 9 months. During this time he has developed in both confidence and in his personal development, preparing him for school. My son adores his teachers and all there are extremely helpful and supportive. Whenever speaking to friends and family about Cotton Tails Too, I can do nothing but praise them. They have been a big part of my son's life and I know he really enjoys going every day.

Thank you all for your continued efforts with his early years. You are all a credit to Cotton Tails Too.

Thank you for your lovely Review.

I have had only good experiences with the nursery, especially when it comes to special needs. I have a child that has been diagnosed with autism. He is doing very well in the environment that he is currently in and the staff have worked very closely with him in order to help me get on. If it was not for the staff working there and the SENCO officer, then he would not be in the position that he is in now. I couldn't be more grateful for all of the help that they have given over the years.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

My son joined this nursery in Baby Room and couldn't have asked for anywhere better. It's so hard to find somewhere to send your child when it's time to go back to work but as soon as I walked in I felt at ease there was such a lovely atmosphere. As soon as I had finished looking around I knew this was the nursery for me. The girls do such a brilliant job and are so friendly and I know my son is well looked after its like home from home. I would recommend this nursery to everyone

My son currently attends Cotton Tails in the baby room and I must say it is a superb nursery. They have a range of activities and my son really enjoys it here. Staff are very friendly and pleasant. They provide a variety of meals that are healthy. I have never had any issues since my son started.

My daughter has been attending Cotton Tails Too for a little while now and the care she receives is excellent. The staff plan a wide range of activities and I love collecting her artwork from her basket. Nothing is too much trouble, the nursery have even cooked special meals for my fussy eater. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

My now 10 month old started in March. The nursery have worked with me on how to wean my child as we did have a few obstacles in the way. The nursery gave me very good advice.

We only attend twice a week and the staff always ask how my son has been, they also like to receive photos of his days out with family so they can add to his nursery book.

If any problems occur whilst my son is at nursery in the day, they always phone me and ask before they take further action. I always receive a handover at the end of the day.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

I am very happy with the care provided by Cotton Tails Too. All 3 of my children have attended the setting and have always enjoyed their time with both the carers and their friends. When my first child started the nursery at 2 years old, she had previously attended a nursery and a childminder both of which sadly became unsuitable. I wanted to find a nursery where I'd be happy to send my other children and thankfully Cotton Tails Too proved to be an excellent childcare provider and 5 years later still proves to be a good setting for my family. I have one child now attending the nursery and she never complains about going in to nursery. The activities that carers provide at the nursery are always fun and creative, enabling my child to develop a multitude of skills and to grow in confidence. The staff are always approachable, friendly and are always accommodating. A big thank you to the carers that go above and beyond when caring for our children! x

Thank you for your wonderful review.

I recommend Cotton Tails Too to anyone. They are a good nursery. My eldest daughter came here and she loved going. She loved all the staff and they are very friendly and they care for the children really well. Couldn't fault them one bit. Now I'm sending my youngest daughter who is starting Cotton Tails Too and I can not wait for her to meet all the girls and have so much fun with them like my eldest daughter did. I definitely would recommend this nursery.

My eldest son went to Cotton Tails Too and my youngest has been going since November 2015. I cannot praise the nursery enough, the level of care and attention the children receive is fantastic. As a working Mom, it is a relief to know that when I leave my son for the day, he is happy and content and is having fun!
The nursery holds different events during the year which allows us as parents to feel part of our child's nursery experience - which for us is important.
By far the best nursery in our area.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

I have sent both my children (who are now 6 and 9) and currently about to send my third without hesitation. My children have amazing memories of nursery and staff always were always extremely kind and caring. Always felt it was 'a home from home'. A lovely feeling to go to work and know they will get everything they need and more.

Amazing staff. Will go above and beyond, helped us out on many occasions, flexible within reason. Even had my daughter (who wasn't on the books) when my wife locked herself out in the winter until I got home to let them in. My daughter will, without a doubt, be going here when the time comes.

I am extremely pleased with Cotton Tails Too Nursery, my middle daughter attended and benefited very well (now 9years) and now my baby attends the same nursery with mostly the same members of staff. She went from the age of 5 months and settled in perfectly and loves attending the nursery. Now 16 months old, she gets her bag and says the names of the baby room staff and gets ready to go in the mornings. Would strongly recommend this nursery to others.

My son has attended the nursery since the baby room. He absolutely loves it and the staff are amazing at knowing what he wants and know each child's personality and how to deal with them. The staff put me completely at ease when having to leave him and was happy for me to ring whenever I wanted to check how he had settled. I always got to speak to his key worker and have never been falsely reassured which has genuinely meant a lot to me. I love getting regular updates to show how he's progressing and meeting his targets. I'm glad I chose this nursery for our baby. Staff are friendly, caring and my child always comes home well fed, well look after and happy.

Both my son and daughter attended Cotton Tails Too and both really enjoyed going. The nursery is clean, bright and inviting. The activities provided are fun and educational. Parent partnership is very good and enough time given to attend workshops. The staff are lovely and friendly. I would totally recommend and wouldn't send my child anywhere else. Thank you, Cotton Tails Too. The outside area is fun and both love this. They both started as babies and have been through each room enjoying them all.

Thank You for your wonderful review :)

Cotton Tails Too is an amazing nursery!! Having used this nursery for over 8 years with 3 children I can honestly say I have never had a bad experience. The staff are all dedicated to their job and have brilliant relationships with the children. I have felt confident leaving my children all from small babies knowing they have been in good, caring hands. Manager and staff go all out for special days such as sports day, fun week, school room nativity, winter wonderland, parents evenings, breakfast mornings to name a few to continue with parents staff/child relationships. The nursery itself is bright spotlessly clean, lovely toys updated regularly, lovely food and a great outdoor area.
My children have come on leaps and bounds attending this nursery.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

Cotton Tails Too is an exceptional nursery. It has been a pleasure to work with the staff, especially the management that always take the time to talk to me about my son and various activities we embark on at weekends. The staff have avoided an environment that my son can excel in, especially role play where his imagination runs wild. His language has improved somewhat as a result. My son loves going to nursery.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

I and my son attended a child and parent bonding morning. On arrival, I was asked if I would like a sausage sandwich, my son, also. It was great to interact with my son, his friends, parents and nursery nurses. They are a great bunch of people who would do anything to help (above and beyond). They do lots of these meetings and it's good for parents and children.

Thank you for your lovely review.

Both of my daughters attend Cotton Tails, and love going. The staff are friendly and brilliant with the children. The facilities are good and outside play area was the best I had seen at a nursery. They are always bringing crafts made at nursery home, the staff always go the extra mile at Christmas with their after-hours Christmas party, where the family get to go to the nursery and see Santa, sing songs and have fun. The regular 'breakfasts' where you can go and be at nursery with your child for an hour is lovely, as you can see them with their little friends, and get your tea and breakfast made for you!!! Would highly recommend Cotton Tails!

My son has been in this nursery since he was a babe in arms, great location, staff have become like family to both my son and I/we love them. He will soon leave for school and wish he could return for an after school club. The managers here are just fantastic so supportive and down to earth. outstanding by Ofsted seems to be all anyone wants these days however I am content with the consistent 'good' held here, I feel there is an equal balance of childcare and development and as a business owner myself, I think the staff are a credit to the owners! I would recommend ONLY this nursery in south Birmingham from a mum who went through a few with my daughter! Keep up the great work guys xx

Thank you for your wonderful review.

Our son has been attending the nursery since he was 10 months old in the baby room, he's now 4 and in the school room and absolutely loves it. The staff are fantastic with the children and its great to leave him there knowing he's in such good hands. Our son loves going and often says on weekends can I go to school today! I'm dreading him leaving next year and having to say goodbye, as it has been a wonderful nursery right from the beginning with no issues.

Thank you for your wonderful review

My daughter started Cotton Tails when she was 7 months old. The nursery had a great reputation and after meeting the staff I knew it was the place for her. My daughter is now 3 1/2 years old and I have never had any problems. I go to work everyday knowing she thoroughly enjoys her time there. She has many friends there who she has grown up with over the last 3 years.
The staff are amazing and are very approachable. They all have built a special bond with my daughter which she will hold forever. The guidance the staff have given her will give her a great start for when she begins school.
I would highly recommend Cotton Tails to any new parent, with the reassurance their child would receive the best care and education a child needs during their early years.
Thank you Cotton Tails.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

My daughter was 10 months old when she first started in the baby room, I cannot express how grateful I am to all the staff for making us both feel so at ease and welcome when she first started. She is now 15 months and absolutely loves going and has an amazing bond with the staff. She is forever coming home with all crafts and arts that they've done in the day, and I am always told what she's eaten that day, how she slept, her nappies; they are very thorough and caring.
I have been to a few events at the nursery, a fun day for all the kids and a Christmas event, both were so much fun. The best was a breakfast morning in the baby room to meet the other kids and moms, and just see how my daughter is during the day!
We all love this nursery and the staff and really appreciate all they do.

My daughter started when she was three. Cotton Tails Too is a very welcoming, warm caring and clean nursery and my daughter looks forward to going which it so much easier leaving her knowing she is happy and looked after and safe. The staff and nursery manager are all fantastic and I am always kept up to date with how she is doing and I am so proud of how far she has come along since being there. The nursery is a bright, clean, fun and safe place to be I cannot rate them highly enough.

Than you very much for your wonderful review.

I have 2 girls who have attended the nursery for the past year, in that year I have noticed a big change in both girls. I have been extremely impressed with the connection my 2 girls have for the careers at nursery, this has put my mind at ease knowing they are somewhere they love and with people, they are comfortable with. The staff are always happy to help. I believe the help my daughter has received from the nursery has helped with the speaking development.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

My son has attended Cotton Tails Too Day Nursery since he was 4 months old. On viewing many nurseries, Cotton Tails Too stood out from the others with their warm, welcoming and clean environment. I can't thank all of the staff enough for their hard work and dedication. As this was mine and my wife's first child, it was very reassuring with all of the support from the baby room team. The staff know the children as an individual and greet each child with a smile on their face. All of the wonderful things they put on throughout the year are always well ran and great fun - parents evening, stay and plays, fete, winter wonderland and so on. I have recommended this nursery to many friends and family and will continue to do so.

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery.

My son has been attending Cotton Tails Too since he was 6 months old and loves every day he attends. I visited numerous nurseries before choosing Cotton Tails Too. They made my decision very easy. On meeting the staff, they were very friendly and welcoming but paid a lot of attention to my son. All staff are caring and interested in the children's development. They have taught my son so much which has made my time with him pleasurable as I get more playtime. Every day all staff have a smile on their face and are ready to have a chat with you. I couldn't ask more from all the staff and they should get recognition for their work. I can go to work knowing my son is cared for and progressing well. Thank you to you all for doing such a wonderful job.

My soon to be 2-year-old son attends this nursery on a full-time basis since the age of 8 months.
The nursery has played a massive part in helping my son develop and providing him high service of care and also a safe, warm and stimulating environment. I cannot thank the nursery team enough. Every day my son looks forwards to going in and it is such a comfort to know he is happy and is in safe hands.
Thank you again for your commitment and outstanding service!!

I have sent all three of my children to this outstanding nursery and I can honestly say it was like home for my children when I was at work. The staff are so kind and they were all very sensitive to each of my children's needs. Especially if they were having a bad day. Which is what every parent needs when you have to leave your children.
They have always had many activities for my children to participate in and many exciting adventures over the years.
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone.

Both of my nieces have attended this nursery and have both had a magical experience. The activities set out by staff are always based on each individual child. Every month the staff set out a stay and play for families to come in and play with their child, this is a lovely idea and is always so fun and exciting!!

Well done team Cotton Tails Too you are all fabulous!!!

We are so pleased that you think so highly of the nursery, thank you for taking the time to review us.

My daughter was in attendance at Cotton Tails Rubery for a couple of years, she is now at school and often asks if she can go back to nursery as she misses the staff very much. All the staff are so attentive, warm and friendly. My daughter flourished socially and their curriculum placed her in a strong educational foundation for infant school.
They make a lot of effort to ensure your child's early years are the best they can be whilst always remaining inspiring with a truly magical experience, going up and beyond! The premises are bright, colourful and always clean and fresh which in my opinion, is extremely important!

We miss the happy faces and characters at Cotton Tails - Rubery, I would highly recommend this nursery in a heartbeat. Cotton Tails are a very special organisation who will leave imprints of your children's hearts.

My daughter has been at Cotton Tails since January 2016 when she was 6 months old and I had to go back to work. She does 2 full days a week. I have been so happy with her progress since being at nursery. Her eating is amazing, she doesn't spill a drop! And I have to give the credit to the girls at nursery for that. She loves the girls who look after her and my husband and I have a great relationship with them. They look after our daughter as well as we do and we couldn't ask for more! Simply amazing!!

The staff at Cotton Tails Too are fabulous, loving, caring, happy and welcoming. They know every child so well and are always ready for cuddles and a chat. The interest and the effort they make to get to know the children and their families is outstanding. It's a great comfort knowing our son is in such great hands and I can happily leave him every day, fully aware that he will have lots of fun. He gets so excited when he sees the nursery and he adores the staff. He has done so many interesting activities, some of which I know he would never experience if he was at home with me! Thank you for all the messy play you do guys!! He has achieved so much in the short time he's been at Cotton Tails Too, we are so proud and grateful to all the staff. The nursery has a wonderful atmosphere and everyone always has a smile on their face. I would definitely recommend. Thank you all for your incredibly hard work, you are fabulous.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you feel at comfort in leaving your child at our setting. I will share your kind words with all of the team :)

Cotton Tails Too is an amazing nursery. My 4-year-old went there for 3 years and my 1-year old has been going for a round 4 months. The staff are so friendly and caring, nothing is too much trouble and my 2 children were/are so happy there. The activities, the environment, the trips out, the seasonal events (summer fair/ Christmas event etc) and garden area are all great but most importantly, the staff really do genuinely care about the children and it feels like such a strong team with a great manager and deputy. I didn't have to think twice about sending my second child there and he has settled in brilliantly.

Lisa Daniels

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2004

Description:

My name is Lisa Daniels; I am the manager at Cotton Tails Too. I joined the company in 2004 and gained the role of room leader with the 2 year olds. I soon became the Deputy of the nursery and enjoyed each challenging task that came my way.

In 2008, I became the nursery manager and gained my Level 3 management qualification in 2009.

Being the manager of Cotton Tails Too gives me a great sense of achievement as each day is different and the children enjoy their time and experiences that we offer.

I am very lucky to have the role and position that I have as I get to work with lovely children and their families.
