  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tiny Teapots Private Day Nursery, Harrogate in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.765 for Tiny Teapots Private Day Nursery, Harrogate is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.765

  • 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 4.438 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiny Teapots Private Day Nursery, Harrogate is based on 7 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.438

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

The manageress is very helpful and understanding. Nothing is too much of a hassle for any of the staff members. I have a two year old daughter attending the nursery and always felt that she is in a safe and stimulating environment. Any issue or concern is always taken seriously.
Meals that are cooked in-house are nutritious and healthy.
The nursery workers are attentive to children's emotional needs and supportive to their developmental progress.

The manageress and her team are fantastic and they always try to accommodate as best as they can. They are friendly and understanding to a family's needs. Over the past four years, I have continuously had a child enrolled in their nursery and I have had no complaints. Keep up the good work!

I couldn't be happier with Tiny Teapots. My toddler really enjoys attending and he has a great relationship with all staff members.
At the beginning, choosing the right nursery proved to be a real challenge as my toddler is also on the autistic spectrum.
The manager is wonderful, always attentive to my child's needs, positive, nothing seems too much or unattainable for her. We communicate very well, she has always been very prompt at solving any issues, I couldn't be happier with her performance and professionalism.
Staff members are lovely, friendly, communicative, really helpful.
The setting is very informative for parents as it clearly displays useful information on safeguarding.
The nursery looks well equipped, always tidy, it has large rooms and corridors.
My toddler is daily being involved in all sorts of activities, he is being stimulated, encouraged to explore and learn.
I am really happy with Tiny Teapots and it totally deserves its Outstanding report.

I have only recently started using the nursery, but the staff and management couldn't be more accommodating. They sorted my daughter a place the following week, swapped the days she attends (at my request). Tried numerous ways to settle her and get her to eat. The atmosphere is calm and caring, but most important of all I feel my daughter is safe and nurtured whilst at the nursery. Thank you for making my life easier.

My daughter has been going to Tiny Teapots for 5 months now and loves every minute there. As soon as we walk through the door I feel welcome as its lovely to see warm smiling faces. My little girl has come on so much in her development, her speech, understanding, sharing also social skills have really grown. I noticed the rooms and displays are always nice and bright which helps the rooms feel even more welcoming. I know my daughter is cared for well and feel at total ease when going to work.

Our son developed into a well rounded boy, he has had so many different experiences that I would have never given him at home. The nursery has a good outdoor space which allows the kids to develop in all different areas of play, from the mud kitchen to playing house in the Wendy house. The manager and all her staff are amazing with the children and always plan activities around what the children want eg. my son saw a hot air balloon on the way to nursery and he told the manager and she took all the kids out to see it and talk about it.
The staff have supported me as a mother in all sorts of situations, from me having no sleep and a crying child. They picked me up so I could function to help me develop my son. I love this nursery and I have got my daughter starting in October.

So happy that I chose this nursery. My eldest loved his time there and was fully prepared and ready for school. My youngest has flourished and takes part in a huge variety of activities. The carers are kind, loving and very knowledgeable. Always approachable and know the children very well. It is hard for any parent to leave their child but I never worry as I know he is receiving top quality care.

Our daughter has been attending, twice a week, since she was a year old and the manageress and her team are absolutely fantastic. There are 4 age/ability appropriate rooms which the children graduate through as their development dictates Each room is staffed by highly qualified, experienced, long serving members of staff who have the most amazing ideas/imagination when structuring activities in line with the EYFS framework. All of our daughter's achievements have been recorded, in pictures and words, since she started so we always know how she's getting on and we'll have a lovely memento to keep. Nothing is ever too much trouble and, where staffing and resources allow, the manageress and her team do whatever they can to accommodate our needs. All of the food is cooked from scratch, on the premises, and the weekly menus are really varied. Our daughter is starting school in September and her last day at nursery will be a very sad one but Tiny Teapots have given her an excellent start.

Our son has had a wonderful experience during his time at this nursery. Each class caters for the children at an appropriate level offering a variety of activities throughout each day to maintain interest. The food has always been absolutely outstanding so much so that we have large boots to fill on a weekend! The staff are excellent, and build and maintain great relationships with the children.
