Tiddlers Day Nursery opened in December 2000 following extensive refurbishments. It is conveniently situated off the A61 between Chesterfield and Alfreton, overlooking the Amber Valley with superb gardens and a great proximity to nature.
The team continue to be proud of their work in developing and nurturing children and continually strive to be the best provider they can possibly be.
In December 2017, Ofsted rated Tiddlers 'Good' in all areas.
All staff are qualified, with some holding the Early Years Professional (EYP) qualification.
Staff were particularly pleased to have been chosen to work with the 'Teletubbies' in 2016 and to help them with a training video. You can find a link to this video on the "Latest News" page on the website.
The website also has a video on it which will help to give you a better visual impression of what Tiddlers is all about.

Tiddlers Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.463)
The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Tiddlers Day Nursery 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tiddlers Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.917 for Tiddlers Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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:
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.
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.
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 1.546 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiddlers Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.091 , then divided by 2 = 0.046
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Scott T (Father of Child) on Friday 2 September 2016. Relates to September 2016.
My daughter has been going to Tiddlers Day Nursery since the age of two she as just left to start school aged four.
Tiddlers Day Nursery was one of the best decisions I have ever made, they are flexible, helpful and extremely polite. There is a great variety of professional staff, who in my opinion can't do enough to help the children and parents.
They offer a wide variety of activities in a warm welcoming environment. With outdoor play/activities in the summertime. My daughter was always so happy to be attending Tiddlers I am just sorry that she has to leave there to attend school. We looked around for the best nursery to start with but we decided that Tiddlers suited our needs the most, and believe me it was the best choice I made for my daughter. She has developed so much whilst attending there and has never been happier, I would recommend Tiddlers to everyone and I can't thank them all enough for everything they have done .
