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 4.637 for Twinkles Nurseries Wetherby is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.637

  • 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 4.024 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Twinkles Nurseries Wetherby is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.274

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

Reviewer Connection to Twinkles Nurseries Wetherby

  • Mother of Child

Absolutely wonderful nursery. The staff are very caring and take time to get to know your child. They make sure that children are stimulated throughout the day and have different themes running at different times to keep the children interested and engaged. My son started at 12 months old having been to a different nursery before and was offered loads of settling in sessions. I could just tell that he was happy there and remains to be. One of the things that set Twinkles apart is that the staff really care. I once asked one of the staff whether she would cuddle my son if he was upset and she said of course but she would also look at why he was upset eg if he was frustrated, wanted a toy or had some other reason for being upset and would comfort him in the most appropriate way for the circumstances. The staff really think about and engage with the children. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Fab, fab, fab! My son has been in the ‘Baby Stars’ room for a few months now and he settled really quickly and absolutely loves it! The staff are absolutely fantastic and I can’t praise them enough. They are really friendly and develop excellent relationships with the children. My son has come on in leaps and bounds. They have also been especially accommodating in relation to some food allergies that he has.

The care in this nursery varies dramatically from room to room. More thought needs to go into the parent and child's needs as opposed to how the staff want to care for your child on a day to day basis. The staff are young and with very few of them actually being mothers themselves. I don’t feel they fully understand basic requirements sometimes.

My daughter loves it here. The staff are friendly, highly professional and really care about the children. They have encouraged her development and make every day varied and interesting through an array of activities. She reaches for her keyworker on arrival which demonstrates the bond between them and I leave for work feeling happy and assured she is in such capable hands.
I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for childcare providers.

The nursery is very welcoming.
Every member of the team is friendly and make you feel at ease.
I'm surprised how quickly my daughter has taken to coming to nursery. I am never concerned when I leave her and have full trust in the team I leave her with. The staff in the baby star room are so informative, they always make sure you know exactly what's happened in my daughter's day.
The capture early years system that the nursery uses is a great idea.

My eldest (2.5) has been at Twinkles since May 2014, and my youngest (9 months) is about to start. I feel a lot more confident returning to work after my 2nd maternity leave because I know my baby will be in safe hands. She's attended several settling in sessions already and seems comfortable in her surroundings, enjoying lots of new toys, sights & sounds. I'm also really happy that my eldest enjoys his days, has varied activities, learns lots and is a sociable, happy little boy. The staff are all very friendly and personable and take the time to get to know the children individually.

My son enjoys going to nursery, they always make him feel welcome they have good structure so he knows what to do when he gets there. I think is really important as they get older and become more independent before school.
Staff always friendly and welcoming. Good feedback at the end of the day, so no complaints.

I have used Twinkles Wetherby for both my children, my youngest is still there, my oldest is now in school, but still attends the holiday club run by Twinkles and the breakfast and after school club.
Both children thrived at Twinkles and formed great relationships with the staff.
Having used the nursery since 2011 it is lovely that there is still a number of staff that are still working there today.
The activities that the kids do, both planned and on the spur of the moment, are great with plenty of walks out into the local community as well. Food always sounds great with a very varied menu.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Twinkles Wetherby.

My child attends Twinkles Wetherby and they are fantastic with her needs. My child recently broke her leg and all staff members made sure that she could join in with every activity for that day. She is learning everything super quick and it's all thanks to the nursery. I would always recommend Twinkles Wetherby.

Great nursery, lovely staff. My daughter has learnt so much since going at 14 months (now nearly 3). The variety of food on the menu is excellent. My daughter loves going to nursery, especially when soccer tots come into teach football! The staff are so lovely, friendly and genuinely care.
