  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.742 for Treetops Acorns Nursery (Bolton) is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.742

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.513 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Treetops Acorns Nursery (Bolton) 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 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.513

  • 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 currently attends Treetops Acorns Nursery (Bolton) and I have nothing but good things to say about the nursery, the staff are friendly welcoming and helpful and nothing seems to be too much trouble. My daughter loves the time she spends there and has a fantastic relationship with her key person and the other staff members. They run regular parent workshops which mean I can have the chance to spend some time with my daughter in her nursery environment, to play together, and join in the activities that have been set out. She comes home with a diary sheet that tells me what she had eaten and the activities she has joined in with that day which is great for Dad to read when we get home as he doesn't get to collect her from nursery very often. Acorns are helping to shape my little girl into a clever confident child! Thank you Jo and Team for all that you do! You are the unsung heroes!

The nursery is great. My son loves going. Since the Manager took over we have seen a great improvement. The staff moral seems to be very high and this has a very positive impact on the children. The girls are very caring and professional and my son loves them. I am very happy with the care he receives and the education is great. He always tells us what he has been learning. Fab team all round.

My son has been at this nursery for almost 3 years. He loves attending nursery as he's made lots of friends and loves all his teachers. He has become a confident helpful polite young man. The nursery is welcoming and provide a safe warm environment. Since attending this nursery, my son has come on leaps. He loves to learn new and exciting things and here is the where he does. I'd like to thank everyone who has helped with my son through the years so thank you.

My stepson has been going to the nursery for almost two years now and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Whenever we pick him up he is always happy, and the staff are always engaging with the children. We have a unique family situation and staff/management have been extremely supportive and understanding, going above and beyond what really is required. There are also menus around the building so you know what your child will be eating, plenty of activities and photos up and the staff always fill us in on what our child has done that day, where they are up to etc. There has been a change in management and some staff over the past year, but fortunately, the staff that have stayed have been extremely helpful during the transition and always put us first, making sure we were familiar and comfortable with the new members of staff. Leaving your child at a nursery is never easy but the staff and management here really do make it as comfortable for our whole family as possible!

My daughter has been attending Treetops Acorns for 2 years now and I have to say I couldn't be happier with the care she is receiving. At three years old she can recognise her name and tells me lots of different rhyming words. My partner and I always attend the parent workshops that have been introduced in the past couple of months and getting to know the staff on a more informal basis. I always feel extremely comfortable leaving my child in the care of the lovely and caring staff. I honestly have nothing but good things to say about this nursery. Special mentions to the staff in crocs who I have to say are amazing.

My son attends the Treetops Acorns nursery and overall I find that the nursery cares for my son very well. Things that could be improved are communication with parents such as telling me how there day has gone, what they have eaten, what they have done etc, not to be handed a sheet of paper with his daily activities on. Having to provide wipes and nappies can also be a bit of a pain as already paying upwards of £700 for nursery care then surely they could be provided by the nursery.

My son has been at Treetops Acorns for over a year & now I feel I can provide an accurate review.
He has moved through 2 rooms since starting and he has loved every room! The staff take time to get to know the children in their care and provide comprehensive handovers at the end of the day. The nursery have a great menu & for a fussy eater my son always eats everything when at nursery!
They are flexible with requests for extra days and work with you to find solutions to childcare needs.
I would recommend this nursery without hesitation
