  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.811 for Twinkles Nurseries Boston Spa is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.811

  • 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 4.472 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Twinkles Nurseries Boston Spa is based on 5 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.472

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

Both of my children attend the nursery and experience a good variety of activities in and outside of the nursery. I happily recommend the nursery and the staff.

Both of our children have attended Twinkles since we moved to the area in 2016. Despite being a smaller nursery with fewer facilities than the one our children attended previously the quality of care is much higher and the general feeling is much warmer and more genuine. Our children have been very happy there and there is little we can fault with our overall experience. Management are always visible and our children have formed real bonds with their various carers, some of whom have been really excellent. Would happily recommend to anyone.

Our son started at the nursery in 2015. We chose Twinkles as it is a small and friendly nursery and they have their own chef who caters to our son's needs. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming.

The Nursery nurses work very hard to keep the children safe and happy and they enjoy different activities each day such as playing outside and story time.

As parents, we feel we have gotten to know all of the staff who care for our son and they all make an effort to get to know him too and build genuine relationships which is extremely important to us to ensure he remains happy when away from family. I know staff will always phone if there are any problems or worries and the managers keep the nursery professional at all times.

Finally, staff always ensure that safety and security are paramount using the buzzer door system and again knowing each child and their family.

Thank you to all the staff at Twinkles for making it a place I know my son looks forward to every week!

Twinkles Nurseries Boston Spa provides fantastic care for my little girl. She is always excited to go, even to the point that she moans about the weekends because 'NO TWINKLES'. Every day she comes home with stories of what she's done (from leaf painting to Easter egg hunts) and the lovely dinners that the chef cooks (apparently his paella is better than mine). The staff are a delight and our key worker is really informative/comprehensive on the recaps we get each day.
Overall, Twinkles Boston Spa has a great atmosphere and is a great nursery.

My children have really blossomed at Twinkles and they both thoroughly enjoy their time at the nursery. The staff are very caring and attentive and provide lots of feedback on what your children have been doing and how we can help develop them further. They regularly go on trips to the surrounding area and have lots of activities to keep them stimulated and interested in learning more.

I was concerned about how my daughter would transition to the nursery after we recently moved to the area. I didn't need to. My daughter loves her time at the nursery in the preschool room. She is spoilt by caring staff and lots of engaging activities, indoor and out. She is encouraged to be herself, explore, learn and have fun.

Great nursery with caring staff. They create a fantastic environment for the children to learn and grow and my kids really enjoy their time there. They are also really good and attentive with allergies which both of mine have had

Would definitely recommend

My little girl absolutely loves nursery. She has been attending since she was 7 months old and is now two. She is comfortable with all the practitioners that care for her, and they all know her really well. Her Key Person is fantastic and always makes her feel special when we arrive in the mornings. The nursery is bright and clean and has a welcoming feel. The menu is wholesome and all home cooked so I know she is getting a good diet whilst she is there. There are always lots of interesting learning experiences available for her. She has come on so much in the last 6 months especially with her speaking and I know that a lot of that is down to the being at Twinkles!

My daughter has been at Twinkles Nurseries Boston Spa for three years and is very happy and settled. She has been in the pre-school room for almost 18 months and although I was worried that this would seem a long time before reception she is thriving and is constantly challenged. The activities are wide-ranging and fun. Staff take the time to really get to know the children and adapt their style and teaching approach accordingly. There is a genuine warmth in the room between the children and also with the teachers. The nursery is culturally diverse and the food is good and nutritionally well balanced.

My two children have been at Twinkles over a period of 4 years. I have always been really impressed with the nursery and all of the staff. There's evidently a lot of work behind the scenes, as well as front of house, and it shows. Well done, and thank you.

The staff are always really welcoming and from the first meeting it is clear how much time and love they invest in all the children.

My little boy started at 6 months old and the staff all made a potentially difficult transition very easy.

Daily feedback is clear verbally and in each child's book and my little boy is thriving there.

We feel very lucky to have found such a lovely place to look after my son 4 days a week.
