The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Arbury Day Nursery & Pre-school is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Arbury Day Nursery & Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 5 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 4.839 for Arbury Day Nursery & Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (240 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 286 Ratings = 4.839

  • 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 4.735 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Arbury Day Nursery & Pre-school is based on 5 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.735

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

After a change to personal circumstances, I had to return to work earlier than planned, meaning my daughter was starting nursery at 7months old.
I was incredibly nervous about leaving her so young but the staff at Arbury were incredibly reassuring.
They have proven that they take excellent care of her and she settled in brilliantly, much quicker than I expected.
Staff have taken the time to get to know both of us and help with her development daily.
My daughter loves going to nursery and has built an excellent relationship with the staff and other children.

The staff are very approachable and have helped our whole family adjust to nursery life. We enjoy reading about what our child has done each day and have noticed a big change in his development. There seems to be a wide range of activities and our child is settling in really well. I would recommend this nursery to any parent as we feel valued and appreciate the 'family' ethos created in this small setting.

The staff at Arbury Day Nursery are fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble and they will always try their best to accommodate the needs of our family.
My daughter has blossomed in the toddler room and enjoys the range of activities provided - always has a full and busy day to tell me about. The recent physical improvements are also welcomed, making a noticeable difference to the look and feel of the nursery.

I started my son at Arbury Day Nursery as I felt he needed a nurturing and learning environment. I could see straight away that I had chose the right place. The staff have put me at ease, as I was nervous about leaving my son for the first time and they cater to my sons interests. Me and my husband are very happy with the care that is provided for him.

My daughter has been attending this nursery now for 7 months and I am more than happy with the care she receives. Her development has really come along since attending nursery along with her social skills. She is very happy to stay when I drop her in the morning and seems to have a very good relationship with the girls who look after her there. I have recently started maternity leave with my second child but decided to keep my daughter at this nursery one day a week as she enjoys going so much and has developed so well since attending.

Great experience, the staff are always friendly and very professional, Father's Day breakfast was great. It's always nerve racking to go somewhere when you don't know people, but you're always made to feel welcome. Everything is explained to you - a great experience.

Since starting my son at Arbury, I have encountered nothing but positiveness when dealing with staff. My son has progressed above and beyond since we made the transition from a childminder to nursery at 16 months old. He is stimulated, his speech for his age is way ahead, and jumping milestones - I believe this is down to the nursery staff and management, and they should receive recognition for this. I couldn't be any happier with the 'hard' decision on my choice of nursery when we looked at 5 within the area. The introduction from the manager was outstanding and ultimately made my decision easy. Well done Arbury and thank you.

I have seen a huge difference in my son since he has been going to Tommies Nursery. He started in April '16 and has already learnt so much. He is talking clearer wanting to make long sentences. I feel he has been in a better routine since going to day nursery. He has picked things up from the nursery very quickly, he comes home and tells me what he did, he says 'outside, played on the carpet' he comes home and mentions the friends he has made. I have seen a difference in him, it's given him the chance to interact with new people and the confidence he needs for the independent character that he is.

My son has been attending Tommies now for the past 8 months. I seriously couldn't ask for better people to be taking care of him 5 days a week. All staff are polite, friendly, professional and very helpful. The nursery provides everything for him. There's never a day when I pick him up he's not done something 'messy' or worn out from all the activities.

My daughter found it very difficult to settled into a different nursery in another town as she is very shy and got very upset at me trying to leave. In the end I pulled her out of that nursery as I couldn't stand seeing her so upset. I thought I would try one more nursery and I got a recommendation vie a friend to try Tommies. They have spent a great deal of time and effort in supporting my daughter to settle in. She absolutely loves coming to nursery. I am very grateful that I have found somewhere that I am comfortable leaving here knowing she is happy and well looked after.

All the staff at Tommies Nursery have really helped my son to settle in well, they are very welcoming and warm. They helped to potty train my son and helped to settle him when he was upset about me leaving. He loves nursery now and always tells me he's had a fab day and all the different things he's done or made. The staff have a great relationship with all parents and children and raise any concerns immediately.

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2013

Description:

I am a strong believer in giving children the best start in life, and to do this it is highly important that children are given stimulating and exciting experiences in their nursery life.

I have worked within the childcare sector for more than 6 years. I had always wanted to work with children, which is why I studied at college for 2 years in order to gain a Level 3 qualification in Children's Care, Learning and Development. More recently I have gained a Level 5 qualification in Management.

I have worked with Tommies Childcare for a few years now as Deputy Manager here at Arbury Day Nursery, Flutterbies Day Nursery and as Nursery Manager at Chapelfields Day Nursery. I came back to Arbury as Nursery Manager in November 2017. My goals are to enhance the nursery by creating stimulating environments and planning activities for the children based on their own interests and passions.

Why not request a visit and see our facilities for yourself? We look forward to seeing you.
