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 4.742 for Tiny Talkers Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (250 Excellents x 5) + (80 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 333 Ratings = 4.742

  • 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 Tiny Talkers Day Nursery is based on 23 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 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target Reached = 1

My little boy has just started in January in Teddy Bears, I could not ask any more from them as they do such an amazing job. He always comes home happy and smiling and I can see what he’s done each day with his diary. They have made so much effort in making us welcome, having settling in sessions and always being there to answer my calls when I make sure he has settled in for the day. I am extremely glad we chose to come to Tiny Talkers.

My children have been at Tiny Talkers since it started. It was a wonderful nursery, my children were always happy there, and very well cared for, lots of toys and day trips in the summer. They both now go to breakfast and after school club, as well as holiday club. They still love it there, even though they're older. There are plenty of toys and quiet corners for them to do their reading, they get a good meal in the evening, not just a piece of bread and jam/cheese etc, they get hand made pizza, as well as other hand made quality foods.

I couldn't recommend them more, they're a small business, very personal touch, the owners know all of the parents and children, they're so caring, and always accommodate us with our ad hoc requests. Staff there are brilliant, many have worked there years, not a high turn-over, which, in my mind means the staff are happy, so the children will also be happy.

My son started to attend The Tiny Talkers Day Nursery just before his second birthday. Before then I was pleased enough with his progress as he had developed at a steady pace and his health visitor said everything was as expected.

I have to say since then his development has come on leaps and bounds. Our child is more confident, happy and even though he attends nursery only twice a week he often comes home singing new songs and speaking new words. It was hard to leave him in the beginning for both of us (parent and child) as he has been used to spending most of his time with me at home.

If I'm honest three months after beginning Tiny Talkers the hardest part is convincing him to come home.

Very friendly nursery. Staff exceptional and really care and know each child individually. High standard of Early Years teaching yet all done through games and fun so children are unaware they are learning. Very flexible and accommodating nursery. Children are very settled and happy and entertained with a wide variety of activities.

Fantastic nursery. Excellent staff who really cares about the children entrusted to their care. My son attended the nursery since he was 6 months of age and he loved every day of it.

Staff are very loving, well educated, energetic and happy to meet each individual child and their parent's needs. Children don't have to follow the nursery's schedule, for example in regard to sleep time, but staff are happy to follow the parent's routine. Lots of out of nursery activities, such as visits to the park, library, playground and lots of time outside playing.

The staff encourage children to make their own choices, encourage polite behaviour by role modelling it. Overall, a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere, with small groups in smaller rooms. The space is kept spacious while offering age-appropriate toys etc and feels more like a home environment than a busy nursery. Staff and management very open to feedback and go out of their way to accommodate your child´s needs.

Can recommend nursery whole-heartedly.

My daughter has been coming to this nursery for 5 months and is extremely happy. We moved house so nursery had to change so I was very worried at the time about how she would settle.

She has never been so happy at nursery! Very happy daughter makes very happy parents! Would highly recommend!

Overall TinyTalkers Day Nursery is brilliant, but just some little standards annoy me, for example, losing my child's property (eg bottles, coats, clothes).

Secondly, I don’t see much in the sense of feedback on how my child is doing within the nursery, how she is getting on with other children? How is her learning going? Is she developing correctly? Would certainly love to see more on that aspect either being verbally or videos or pictures on the app.

Lovely Nursery, small enough that it feels very personal and more than willing to cater for individual needs. Core staff are excellent and have been very flexible when needed.

A really warm, friendly and homely nursery. My son absolutely loves it.
The Tapestry, secure digital platform is a great way to keep connected with how things are going for him at the nursery - and staff keep you updated sending us images of his progress. There are also lots of events happening for the kids and creative activities throughout the week.

The staff have been very accommodating of our needs and are all very friendly. They genuinely care about all of the kids.

It's very clean, and there's a great messy outdoors area too.

I would highly recommend.

From the first moment walking through the door, I knew this was 'the one' - it's hard to describe why a nursery works for you but Tiny Talkers Day Nursery was friendly, clean, the children all appeared happy and the staff looked engaged.

My little boy has been going to Tiny Talkers Day Nursery from 9 months old, he has now just turned 2 and absolutely loves going to nursery. I really like the 'home from home' feel. All of the staff know my son's name (regardless of those who work in his room) and he genuinely seems pleased to see them.

I love how much time the children spend in the great outside space, if it's raining, the wellies go on! If it's sunny, the sun tan cream is splashed on and if it's cold, they get wrapped up warm!

I really appreciate the in-house cook. I feel good knowing the children are getting a well-balanced mixture of home cooked food. The menu's get emailed to parents as well as an outline of what each room will be learning that week.

I would (and have) recommended Tiny Talkers Day Nursery!

Tiny Talkers Day Nursery is an amazing nursery and pre-school. If you are looking for a homely, child-centred and creative nursery this will suit you. We looked at loads of other nurseries in West Bridgford but found Tiny Talkers to be the best by far. For us, it is a great stepping stone from home life to prepare for school. Both our children have settled so well thanks to all the staff.

Our little boy started nursery at 10 months and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more accommodating during his settling in. We feel like they really get to know him and his little character as it develops.
He’s now 17 months and loving it there! The food is excellent and probably far better than anything I cook! It’s clean and no shoes are worn so you feel from a young age that cleanliness will not be a problem. The play area outside is brilliant. All in all, we’re so happy we chose Tiny Talkers!

All staff are knowledgeable, approachable, invested and passionate about the children.
They take the time to get to know each child, their likes, dislikes, familial circumstances.
Tapestry is brilliant, nothing brightens my day more than seeing what my son has learnt or is up to.
Working full time, I constantly worry about the effect my leaving has on him, knowing that he is in a safe, happy environment that's full of learning and development and fun, eases my worries.

My daughter started when she was just over 5 months old as I had to go back to work. I was very apprehensive and nervous at the thought of leaving her. When searching for a nursery as soon as I walked into the building I immediately knew that this was the one.

It had such a lovely feel to it and it was very clean which was very important to me. The staff were so lovely and friendly I just knew my daughter was going to this nursery.

It is now 2 years later and we still love it. All the staff are very friendly and approachable. I feel very confident that my daughter is safe and very happy in her learning and playing environment.

I am always kept informed of what she is up to and I get regular emails to keep me up to date on what's happening in the nursery and offers of other parenting type things in the area.

Their online learning journal is a great way for new and my family who are not local to see what my daughter is up to.

An all-around outstanding nursery in my opinion.

Child is happy at this nursery and we really like the smaller more homely feel of the provision. Activities are stimulating and food provided is healthy and varied. Lots of outdoor play and staff are caring and know each of the children in different rooms.

I was very pleased from the moment I walked in to see that staff members and parents take their shoes off at the door. Tiny Talkers have a home to home feel the children are very calm and engaged. The children have a variety of creative play areas without if feeling forced! The staff members were very welcoming towards myself and my son. I can't wait for him to start as I feel all his needs would be met. I would highly recommend this nursery to parents!!

I have a 9-month-old attending the nursery for two months. We were nervous as he is very young and we were prepared not to send him to a nursery if he was unhappy. My partner spent a lot of time visiting regularly with him for short periods of about 5 months so he got used to the environment which of course is key to the settling in. The staff were really supportive and extremely flexible. Our baby is really happy there and the staff pay a lot of attention to all the children. It is a very natural, easy-going family play kind of place. Very bright and spacious. Cannot fault it. I don't like the scoring below because I don't really know about some things like Resources/Safeguarding/Management etc in my case. There should be an n/a option. I ticked 'Satisfactory' on Food/Nutrition because I think British people demand that food that is 'Satisfactory'... Sorry! Overall, though, brilliant and the food is not a problem :)

Our son was in Tiny Talkers since he was 1 and up until 4. They are absolutely brilliant. The staff is friendly and naturally nice with kids. I think the Manager really can pick up right people.
Most importantly, my son loved every single day he was at nursery.
The premises are very clean.
The best nursery in West Bridgford.

My daughter has been in nursery since April, she took a long while to settle, but when we gets there she now loves it. The staff are very lovely and my daughter has a few she's attached to, so that's nice. The outside space is fantastic, although I don't think they should be going outside now, it's cold weather. The only downside I can say is she normally comes home in different leggings as they don't change her nappy on time.
