  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 35 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 4.887 for Teesdale Childrens Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (596 Excellents x 5) + (72 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 670 Ratings = 4.887

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Teesdale Childrens Day Nursery is based on 35 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 35 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target Reached = 1

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

I would recommend Teesdale Day Nursery to anyone 100%.

My children have attended the nursery for 4 years, the staff are fantastic, caring and compassionate. My children come home each day with a beaming smile on their faces, a story to tell, and have learnt something new. The staff go above and beyond expectations every day. I have always recommended and will continue to do so, couldn't ask for a better group of girls.

Michelle Gorman, Nursery Manager at Teesdale Childrens Day Nursery responded to this review on 22 Feb 2018:

Thank you Sarah for your lovely review.

I cannot be happier with the care, love and happiness all the staff here show the children. I was worried about using a childcare provider in the North East as my previous provider in York was so good. Teesdale / Nunthorpe nurseries have been amazing, I would recommend them to anyone. From drop off to collection, daily activities relevant to the time of year and daily email notifications with their online journal, everything is fantastic. My daughter is very clingy at home but loves going into nursery and the way she's at ease with all the staff is testimony to the hard work the girls put in. Thank you.

Thank you Kelly for the lovely review, I will let the girls know what you have said.

My daughter really enjoys every day that she comes to Teesdale Children's Day Nursery and looks forward to coming. We would recommend this nursery to anyone. I have found the staff very helpful and always keep me informed of my daughter's activities and well being while here. The meals are very good and my daughter eats it all up and never goes hungry. Her education has improved dramatically while here also. As shown by her using her skills picked up here in everyday life.

Thank you for your lovely review, Claire.

My daughter currently attends this nursery and my son did prior to her. My daughter suffers from a condition that needs daily management but it's never been too much trouble for the staff at the nursery. They have been taught how to manage it by specialist staff and do so brilliantly! I could not have asked for a better team of people to look after her.
The staff are always friendly, polite and caring. I love the updates on Tapestry about what they have been doing through the day, lots of happy play and lots of learning too!
I have always felt 100% confident when dropping both my children off that they will be well looked after. I would recommend this nursery to anyone!

Great nursery. My son has developed here and followed in his sister's footsteps who is doing very well at school.
In regards to safeguarding, I feel maybe the entry code should change from time to time.

My son is very happy at Teesdale nursery and loves coming every week to see his friends. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. My son has progressed so much in his development since he began attending Teesdale in regards to his speech, numbers, shapes, languages and many more. I couldn't recommend this nursery enough.

I have two children and both come here. The staff are welcoming when we first come and make the children feel comfortable. My oldest has come on leaps and bounds with counting, creative play, concentration and has manners which he uses all the time now. My youngest has been going a few weeks now and he coming on with his play and looks forward on a morning that he is coming to nursery.
Thank You.
Keep up all your amazing work.

Thank you Megan, for your lovely comments - Michelle.

I cannot fault Teesdale Children’s in any way. The staff and management are so friendly and approachable. I especially like the app the nursery uses to allow me to receive updates on what my child has been doing that day but I also always get informed of what my child has eaten, been doing etc when he is collected on a night - pick up doesn’t feel rushed and staff are always happy to discuss any concerns be it potty training, behaviour etc.

My son has a great time at nursery and his development has come on leaps and bounds. I would not hesitate to recommend Teesdale Children’s Nursery - keep up the fantastic work ladies.

Thank you, Kelly, for your lovely comments. Michelle.

All three of my children have attended Teesdale and I would absolutely recommend it. My eldest is 12yrs and a lot of the staff are still there now caring for my son. The care they give is the best you could wish for. They feed them, entertain them, offer them new opportunities, teach them new things, look after them when they're under the weather, let them have fun and keep them safe. The girls are so caring and I totally trust them all to look after my son whilst I'm at work. They are all so approachable and friendly and will offer advice when asked to. Great bunch of girls would recommend 100%.

Changed to this nursery as I had had several issues at his old nursery. Have swapped and I haven't looked back.
My child is now happy to go to nursery. Problems with food - where my child doesn't eat a great deal are being improved with the help of the nursery. Staff are always friendly and informative. Would recommend to anyone.

I would highly recommend this nursery.
The staff in baby room are lovely and great with the children, my little boy feels comfortable with them all and enjoys his time at nursery.
The staff/management are very helpful and understanding, they will help you as best they can and give great advice.
The children are well looked after in a safe environment.
Staff try and help with children's development.
I loved the pictures they helped my son make at Christmas and all deserve a medal after the photographer visited.
I can imagine how trying that day was and my son's photo was great.
I love picking him up when he's full of paint etc.
He has such a good time. Thank you.

I have already recommended Teesdale nursery to my colleague and his daughter is starting here next month.

What a lovely nursery. As someone who has little support in local area, I have left my boys here and they have settled so well. Every time my boys come out after a long day I feel like they have developed, especially my quieter twin! I feel they treat both as individuals and encourage their independence! The nursery-friendly staff have put an anxious Mam at ease and been so flexible.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

My daughter has attended Nursery for the past 2 years and the staff here are fantastic. My daughter has special needs and required a lot of support which the staff provided.
The nursery manager is fantastic and has helped myself and my daughter at length over the years she has attended the nursery. She has helped fill out forms and attended meetings held regarding my daughter's educational needs. The level of care and support from the members of staff has been fantastic. Would definitely recommend this nursery.

Amazing nursery! The staff go above and beyond to ensure my children are happy here. Two of my children have attended the nursery, my daughter in 2012 and my son currently, they both settled really well and always look forward to going to nursery. My newest addition will be attending a little later in the year and I have no worries about how much he will be cared for and loved during his time at Teesdale!

Would absolutely recommend Teesdale to any parent, my daughter was unsure when starting nursery like all children, the staff helped her settle in so well and myself, now she absolutely loves the place, the staff and the children and does not want to leave. She has so much fun there, which couldn't make me any happier knowing she loves Teesdale.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

I think the nursery and its staff are fantastic, they keep me updated on events and my child's progress, how she has been that day and what she has or hasn't eaten. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds and I highly recommend the nursery to everyone.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

I would strongly recommend this nursery to family and friends. The staff are very kind, honest and supportive and most importantly, loving to the kids. They looked after my son for nearly 2 years and I didn't experience any kind of dissatisfaction in all aspects of child care including education, social development, food and personal care. As a mother, I always feel safe to leave him there. I always know what's happened throughout the day and if my child is ill they look after him and let me know. Recently, my son started part-time sessions and the staff were really flexible so I can change days if I needed to. Overall, it's a great nursery.

My daughter attends two days a week and she loves it. She has come along with her speaking and walking since being there. The staff are friendly and have a good rapport with the children. Very age appropriate games and activities to suit my daughter.

Thank you for your lovely comments

My 12-year-old son came to this nursery so it was a no-brainer to bring my baby. There is still some of the same staff working there which really reassured me.
My baby has settled lovely and the staff are brilliant! I couldn't recommend this nursery enough.

My daughter attended this nursery from about 9 months old up to 3 years when she started school nursery and I've never had any concerns. She was happy to go into nursery and was always happy when getting picked up, the staff always have good day to day on pick up saying what they had done and what she had eaten. My son also attended this nursery and would highly recommend it to family and friends they have a good friendly atmosphere and encourage all the children.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

All of the staff have been fantastic at making my little boy settle in and feel welcome. He really loves attending nursery. I can also see that his development is helped by being at nursery and by the stimulation provided through the fun activities the staff organise. I also really love receiving little updates through tapestry, it helps put my mind at ease, knowing what my little one is up to and that he is having fun. Great nursery in every way!

Just got to say that this nursery deserves credit. My daughter has been attending this nursery since September and not had any issues what so ever. Daughter settled in straight away, which I believe was due to the excellent level of care given by all members of staff within the nursery . They take extra care in making sure my child is doing fine and gives me regular updates on what she's been doing. My daughter's speech has also come along, food options are healthy with a great selection. And always different activities for the children to participate in. The staff make an extra effort in everything they do. Not a bad word to say. Massive thumbs up !!

My daughter and son have both been coming to Teesdale Nursery since they were 7 months old. The staff have helped my children to settle in but also make myself and their mother feel at ease about leaving them. The staff care about the children's personal needs and also their development. They help them every step of their journey. My children are now 2 and 3 years old.

What can I say, my daughter loves to go to nursery and if she could speak would most likely praise it, the staff are pleasant and informative and she always seems to enjoy her time. Well informed on day to day and varied meals and snacks.

My little boy has been going to this nursery for nearly two years and I can honestly say he loves it. He asks me every morning if he can go. He has developed so much since he started. All the staff are friendly and he loves each of them. He has a good relationship with them and they have time for each and every child. They are happy to let you visit for parents evening when ever you want to catch up on what your child has been doing. The staff even take time to chat to you on a personal basis and are very accommodating to your needs.
