Reviews

9.9 Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Higher Blackley has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.853)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Higher Blackley 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Higher Blackley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 13 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 4.897 for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Higher Blackley is calculated as follows: ( (140 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.897

  • 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 4.956 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Higher Blackley is based on 13 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.956

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

The staff at the nursery are very welcoming and treat children in a professional and lovely manner. I feel confident leaving my children (2) with the nursery because I know they will be looked after just like they are at home, of course, while learning new stuff.

Both my children have attended here and I would highly recommend this nursery. I felt they were safe and secure and they both really enjoyed the experience. I had a good relationship with all the staff and I was well informed of my children's development, what they had eaten and nappy changes.

I genuinely cannot praise Tiddlywinks Nursery and their staff highly enough. The attention to detail with each and every child, parent etc is phenomenal. My son has really progressed and is such a confident little boy. He's so happy here and I find literally every single member of staff so helpful and professional. I would recommend Tiddlywinks.

Tiddlywinks is a wonderful place. There's nothing greater than leaving your child in the knowledge that they are in brilliant hands and that they will have great fun and learn loads. All the staff are very attentive and friendly.

I am very happy with my son's overall care and cannot fault it. My son has come on leaps and bounds and I know it's because of the great staff, resources and facilities they have.
The outdoor area is fantastic and he would sleep there if he could.
Thank you for everything you do.

Two of my children attend Tiddlywinks Day Nursery in Higher Blackley.
I have never felt so comfortable with leaving my children with someone besides family. The staff make me feel so relaxed and I have never had one single worry about the nursery or any of the staff in it.
Both boys attending nursery are always so excited to come in and never want to leave.
I wouldn't want it any other way.

We have all had a really positive experience at this nursery, from my daughter's perspective and my husband and I.
The staff are fantastic, welcoming, friendly, informative and caring. We love checking the parent zone website to see updates and photos of everything our daughter is up to.
Our daughter has definitely shown improvements in her learning, mobility and speech, which we think are directly linked to her attendance at the nursery.
The nursery provides a wide range of activities, themes and education. Alongside this, there is plenty of play. Our daughter has been so happy here and loves the staff and other children too.
I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

I am happy with the care and learning my son has had, he was such a quiet shy child before he started Tiddlywinks. He is now so confident and his speech has improved amazingly, he can now also count and spell the first 2 letters of his name.
Amazing staff, really happy, thank you.

My son has been at Tiddlywinks since August 2013. My son has come on amazingly, the staff are a pleasure and have looked after him really well. They are always lovely, polite and caring towards my son. With lots of different approaches, they have offered lots of help with my son out school too - behaviour techniques etc...
I will be really sad when he leaves to go to school.
