Reviews

8 Lots of Tots Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (7.971)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Lots of Tots Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lots of Tots Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.875 for Lots of Tots Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 3.096 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lots of Tots Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.096

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

A wonderful place! All the staff are cheerful, welcoming, kind, thoughtful and very professional.
My granddaughter absolutely loves going there and always comes home excited to tell us and show what she has done that day. There is such a lovely feel there, a real home from home. The rooms are spacious, organised and well kitted out and they have a great outdoor play area too. The toddler room is zoned for focussed learning experiences. They serve home-cooked food from their kitchen - they have lots of awards for healthy eating and care quality. There's plenty of safe parking which is next to the nursery! It's safe everywhere and there's a canopy in the outdoor play space to protect from the sun or rain too. Also, they have a fantastic community cafe in the building. I had the best breakfast and coffee there ever. The atmosphere is really friendly and fun and the prices very reasonable - the perfect place to wait or visit with family for refreshments. I can't recommend Lots of Tots in Tairgwaith highly enough.

Excellent service provided to both my son and niece when they attended. Even did pick up from Meithryn to the creche which was very helpful. Also very flexible with the hours my son attended as my work pattern often changed.

I placed my youngest daughter in Lots Of Tots after being neglected in another nursery.
I was very apprehensive to place her in someone's care after the treatment she had received prior.
I chose Lots Of Tots, due to the spacious rooms and the experienced staff, the staff were amazing, they looked after my daughter as if she were their own. She would be there from 8am until 6pm. She left everyday happy and content. As she grew, the staff helped her tremendously in her learning stages, learning English and Welsh songs, letters, sounds etc. she would often come home with new paintings and crafts that she had done. The staff were also amazing in helping me potty/toilet train my daughter, I was dreading my daughter being out of routine out of the house during this stage, but I needed not to worry, as I felt she learnt quicker with the help of the staff and her fellow nursery friends.
I would highly recommend anyone to visit Lots Of Tots to see for themselves and place their child/children in the capable hands of these very kind and caring members of staff
