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 4.804 for Tibbi Tots Nursery in Southport is calculated as follows: ( (312 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 372 Ratings = 4.804

  • 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 4.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tibbi Tots Nursery in Southport is based on 14 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.778

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

Each member of staff is very friendly and always with smiles which makes a good atmosphere of this place. My little princess loves to go there now but I remember when she started in September. It was a very difficult time for all of us and all team worked so hard, with patience, to make sure she is a part of the group. My little girl made big progress and I am very thankful for that.

We have used Tibbi Tots Nursery in Southport since 2013 (for our son, before his starting school and now for our daughter, currently aged 3). I would highly recommend this nursery and the childcare team in place. The nursery is extremely well managed and is an excellent environment for children.

On my second child through this nursery. Management was always visible but not always around now. Staff employed seem to be younger age and not as experienced with children. Always chatted to keyworker and knew who they were but my second experience not had the same level of service. Feel like you repeat yourself sometimes to different staff about your child. Routine is changed like naps stopped without parent's permission. Since the parent zone app is introduced you know less about your child's day. The app could be used a lot better than what it is. Sometimes the app isn't updated with naps. Don't seem to have parents evening as often as my first experience. Feel like service has gone down through my second child not stayed same or improved. If I had a 3rd child I wouldn't jump to book a place.

Our little boy loves coming to nursery, he is familiar with all the staff and has a good relationship with them.
The staff are always friendly, helpful and give time to feedback at the end of the session.
I do feel however that the online system doesn't work as well as it could. Would be lovely to see more pictures/observations and can't always rely on up to date information to what my child has eating, or something different information online to what I get told at pick up time.

Tibbi Tots is a wonderful nursery, my son has been going for almost 6 months and he has loved it, the staff are very attentive and he's grown fond of them. Nutrition is taken very seriously and all the meals and snacks are healthy and made in house and he is always stimulated with plenty of toys and activities to participate in. Couldn't recommend it enough.

All the staff are brilliant and really care for our son. He is making excellent progress in learning to write and count, even now learning French. He really loves the play combined with learning and enjoys interacting with his friends in the great outdoor-safe area. His food requirements are well catered for and the management always ensures everything is perfect for him.

The manager and deputy manager are extremely passionate about the children and go above and beyond to support children and their families. The staff are great and really understanding, they are so positive and supportive of children with complex needs also. The chef creates lovely food and my son tends to have seconds because he enjoys the meals so much. The environment is lovely and clean, outdoor space is lovely with lots of resources available. Our child has additional needs and the nursery could not have done more to support him and include him, building his confidence. This really is a lovely nursery lead by a fantastic management team.

My 2-year-old is absolutely thriving at Tibbi Tots. The staff are the epitome of professionalism, whilst making my daughter feel cherished while under their care. She has developed and learned so much. The dedicated nursery chef makes the most wonderfully balanced snacks and meal. Overall, just a fantastic nursery.

I feel that my child is very safe and cared for. She does have a tendency to worry and get upset, but I know they do everything to distract her. The only thing I would suggest is that Parent Zone isn’t always updated and compared to other nursery’s do not show many photos.

Thank you for everything that you do!

All of the staff and management at nursery go above and beyond on a daily basis. We go out to work reassured that our son will be well looked after, and he is now of an age where he can show just how much he enjoys attending nursery.
The food is amazing, and always smells lovely when we are dropping off and collecting. We would recommend the nursery (and have done) to any of our family and friends.

As a mother of two boys who currently attend Tibbi Tots Southport, I would just like to say how wonderful this nursery is, from the Staff to the facilities. From day one, both of the boys have settled completely into life at Tibbi Tots and are becoming confident, extremely happy and articulate little men. The staff are a pleasure to deal with and are always able to answer your questions, whatever the subject. The food at this nursery is brilliant and as a parent, I've had no trouble at meal times with the boys and are able to take them to any restaurant or social occasion, in part, I feel due to Tibbi Tots. Would just like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you, to you all and it'll be a sad day in 2017 when my first child leaves for school.

Tibbi Tots nursery staff are wonderful. From day one, they have been so open, caring and helpful. They genuinely care about our son. When I first experienced this for myself, I was so touched by how much our son's happiness and welfare mattered to them. We have seen our little boy change and grow so rapidly in a short space of time. His development has been accelerated because of the nurturing environment he is in every day, and we have the nursery staff to thank for playing a major part in this.

I love this nursery! the main thing for me is staff - incredible professionals, children love them and I feel safe leaving my little girl in their hands. The place itself has a wonderful atmosphere, lots of toys, different activities and giggles around. Staff are so helpful, with everything, with every single bit and very thoughtful. And another (key element for me) - chef My daughter has freshly cooked meals, a variety of fruits and vegetables and eats all of it!

My child was very anxious starting nursery and we weren't sure it the right step for him but the staff at Tibbi Tots Nursery in Southport have been so supportive with him and with me and his Dad. He is settling in really well thanks to them. He is really happy and is flourishing since he started. Love all the staff, they really care about all of the children. Tibbi Tots is a great nursery with genuine staff and wonderful facilities. Their outdoor space was my favourite out of all of the nurseries we went to view (and we went to see A LOT! )
My little boy loves it and I'm so glad of the choice we made :)

My daughter has been through a number of rooms in the last 18 months and all the staff have been excellent. She loves going and has made lots of friends. The garden has recently been landscaped with imitation grass for the children to run around on, a lot safer than the previous tarmac!
The food is all freshly prepared, sometimes a little 'exotic' for my daughters taste and occasionally the portions are a little small, but that is obviously difficult to judge, and 'seconds' are given if there is enough to go round. All in all an excellent nursery.

I am very pleased with my son's progress. From starting at this nursery he has developed dramatically and is still excelling, could not praise the staff more. The facilities are very clean and the activities the children do are of a large variety. Could not have picked a better nursery to send my son to.

Both my daughters attend nursery and both love it. The amount of different activities available to them is fantastic. I enjoy hearing about her day and all the things she has been learning about. Martin Mere (WWT Wetland Centre) came to visit which she enjoyed. Over Halloween ZooLab (live animal handling workshops) came to visit which both my children got to see and enjoyed. I like the 'decorate a Christmas tree decoration', to tie in with home observations. This is a great idea to help busy parents to take a minute and help their child and to spend that time with them and to also get us involved. Every member of staff is approachable and easy to talk to. Very helpful, very pleasant, smart and the whole nursery is just a great place. I am very happy we chose this nursery and strongly recommend it to anybody and everybody. The manageress Sharon has a great team.
