The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Hill Lane is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Hill Lane in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 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 4.964 for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Hill Lane is calculated as follows: ( (162 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.964

  • 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 4.726 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Hill Lane is based on 9 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.726

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

My son has been attending for a few months now and started when he was 8 months old.
I am extremely happy with everything and I can clearly see that my son is too.
My son has come on leaps and bounds since starting nursery and is always excited when he realises it's time for nursery.
My son's keyworker is fantastic and has really helped both of us settle in.
His little face when he sees her tells me how much fun they must have together.
I'm very grateful to have him attend such a good nursery with fab staff.

My son (3.5 years) loves going to nursery and loves all the different activities and learning.
He especially loves the outdoor space and facilities. The staff are wonderful and always have a smile and hello for us when we arrive to drop him off or pick him up.
They have helped make him confident and happy in the learning environment.

Having sent my eldest child to Tiddlywinks, I was certain I wanted my youngest daughter to attend as our experience of their staff, setting and level of care was excellent from day one.

Tiddlywinks is a lovely place for my children to go to. They love every minute of being there and have a special bond with their key carers.
I see what they get up to and love watching videos of what they have been up to.
Keep up the good work!

My niece went to Tiddlywinks and left 6 years ago and she enjoyed her time there so much, she cried when she left to go to school, I didn't consider any other nursery. My son started October 2016 and he has come on in leaps and bounds. All the staff are really friendly and always have a cheery manner. My son is always happy to go for hugs with his key workers. I leave him knowing he is getting the best possible care. ParentZone allows me to keep track of what he is up to during the day, with regular pictures which lighten up my day.

My older daughter who is now 15 years old attended this nursery and after a very positive experience, I also wanted my youngest child to attend Tiddlywinks Hill Lane. She is now 2 years old and has been at this nursery since 8 months old. The staff at the nursery are very professional and caring and know the children they are looking after very well. My child goes into nursery each happy and confident. I have seen her development come long a long way and I feel content leaving her there each day seeing how happy and comfortable she is. The facilities are great too.

My daughter has been at Tiddlywinks from the age of 1 onwards, and has gone through the baby room, tweenie room and now is in the preschool room. All of her key carers have been exceptional, very compassionate and understanding, and consequently, she has thrived here. My daughter has developed into a kind, intelligent little girl and that is largely due to the high standard of care she has received from all of the staff at Hill Lane. A wonderful nursery I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Even if he cries when I leave him there, I know my son is in good hands and I find him happy and wanting to stay more. I strongly recommend Tiddlywinks Day Nursery to anyone looking for a nursery. My son developed really well since he is there and he started to learn English really fast.

I sent my 1st daughter to Tiddlywinks 8 years ago and loved the care she received, so when I found I was expecting my 2nd daughter, born in summer 2015, there was no alternative provider I would have considered to provide care to my child when I went back to work in March 2016. My daughter, since starting, has loved every minute of her time at Tiddlywinks the care she receives is second to none. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since starting and has developed into a happy, confident and social little girl.

Our daughter has developed really well at Tiddlywinks which we put down to the mixture of things including the nursery environment, support of the nursery staff and the structured development plans they put in place. These also help to focus the parents efforts at home. We are very happy that she is clearly very well cared for despite only attending two days a week.

This nursery offers first-class childcare. My 15-month old loves being at nursery. He's been there full-time since 8 months and he's really come along. It's really reassuring when you have to work, as you can relax knowing he's in professional and caring hands. The staff appear to enjoy their work, which makes it a happy nurturing environment. Couldn't recommend the nursery enough. A must-visit if you're looking at a few locally.
