  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 8 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 4.579 for Treetops Alton Manor (Belper) is calculated as follows: ( (254 Excellents x 5) + (115 Goods x 4) + (24 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 394 Ratings = 4.579

  • 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 4.444 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Treetops Alton Manor (Belper) is based on 8 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.444

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

My daughter and I have always received a warm welcome. My daughter feels at ease there and appears more settled there compared to her to her other pre-school seating. She is over three and is government funded and if it was not for the government funding, then my daughter would be missing out because I would not be able to afford it. Thank you very much.

I have been so pleased with how my 18month old has settled into nursery. The staff are so friendly, open and show such warmth and care to my child. It is incredibly reassuring to know that he is in such capable hands. My child is really growing in confidence and has made fantastic progress during his time at Treetops.

My child joined Treetops in June and I couldn't be happier. The staff are welcoming and I feel he is well looked after. I believe he gets a lot out of coming to nursery and has benefitted from the social interaction and activities he does.

I like how the nursery is modern and purpose built, the rooms feel spacious and are light and airy. I've seen the older children's learning spaces and I look forward to my son's progression through them.

The team at Alton Manor have been a great support. It's hard for mums like me to leave baby, but the team has made it easier, providing updates during the day and daily diaries.
The team organise a varied calendar of activities and photos of baby enjoying themselves.
The baby room is a home from home space where my little one is happy and that's the most important thing to me.

We have been very happy with the care my son has received at Alton Manor, particularly the transition into the next room - Crocs. There have been lots of changes at the nursery, but the staff in the rooms have always remained friendly and my little bot loves them all.

I couldn't ask for a better nursery for my daughter. She has settled in so well and loves all of her teachers. I always feel confident in leaving my child in the nursery care. First class nursery.

I have used this nursery since my daughter was born in 2005. When she used to attend we had no issues but since my son has been coming, I have seen a very large change in how the nursery is run etc. The manager has changed approx. 5 times in the short time he has been coming (since 2014) and a lot of staff which were there since my daughter was there have left. I do feel like it has gone down hill quite a lot in the past few years.

Staff are very attentive and make an effort to get to know the children outside of just their nursery environment. Arrival at nursery could be improved as it can be chaotic in the mornings and sometimes feels that staff are not aware of which children are present. The staff encourage the children to play in a varied fashion. They also encourage the children to try lots of different food. Overall staff are excellent but some procedures could be improved.

My daughter started nursery this year and settled in straight away without any problems. She (and me!) were made very welcome and Treetops Alton Manor has a lovely warm and friendly environment. The staff are extremely helpful and my daughter loves going to nursery. She always smiles when we arrive and is happy at the end of the day! It is a big relief for me that she enjoys it so much.

The overall feel is very warm and friendly. It is well equipped to keep little ones entertained. They have accommodated my daughter's intolerances so I don't worry about mealtimes. She comes home very happy and the feedback each week from staff is very informative. Would highly recommend.

My 2-year-old started nursery at the beginning of January and settled in very well due to the way the staff were with her. They were very supportive. They keep us informed of her progress on a daily basis, this makes us secure in the knowledge that our little girl is in safe hands. She comes home excited about her day and it is so nice to see.

We're really pleased with the care our little girl gets from the baby room upstairs. She loves her key worker and always seems to enjoy herself. The only downside is when she is off work!

My little boy started Treetops Alton Manor Day Nursery (Belper) when he was 9-months-ols and he loved every minute. His key workers are incredibly kind and caring and always share the fun and exciting things that my son does every day. My son is now 22 months old and enjoys coming to nursery every day. He smiles going in every morning and always has lots to say.
