The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for St Thomas Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Thomas Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 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 4.599 for St Thomas Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (166 Excellents x 5) + (71 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.599

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.789 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Thomas Pre-School is based on 6 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.789

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

All the staff are fabulous, my daughter loves attending nursery and misses it on the days she doesn't go. She has built a great relationship with her key worker. I can't fault the nursery at all.

Tommies are currently taking care of my daughter. She is 2 years old. She absolutely loves playing with the wide variety of toys. The staff have always been very friendly and welcoming whenever I have spoken to them. All the staff are well trained and this shows when you drop off or collect the children, as they give you all the information about what your child has done that day.
I am very happy with the staff, facilities and activities at Tommies. Well done ladies!

I cannot recommend St Thomas Pre School enough! Our son started here towards the end of last year and we were very apprehensive about leaving him in a nursery setting for the first time. We really shouldn't have worried!! He settled in so well and adapted very quickly to pre school. He really looks forward to coming and has formed some lovely friendships here. The staff are second to none! Not only do they make our son feel welcome, they make us feel extremely welcome too! They are all very easy to talk to and I wouldn't hesitate in raising any issues with them if necessary. Our son is in the younger room at the moment and it is always set up with plenty of activities to keep the children busy throughout their sessions. I think the monthly news letters and feedback/observations in the children's books/verbally are a great way of keeping the parents involved.

Staff are amazing, they have helped my son to develop confidence and his development has been wonderful. Whilst the setting is an old church hall, they make the most of the space and it is a lovely environment. I cannot speak highly enough of everything!

Always supportive with both parents and children -my child has struggled with changing from toddler room to pre school room and although I have found this especially hard due to my child crying when I leave he has really enjoyed moving to the pre school room. Although my child has cried lots he is always happy when I come to collect him and this is due to the staffs encouragement and support given to him whilst at pre school.

The staff at St Thomas Pre-School are really welcoming. They comfort our son when he's upset and reassure us he will be OK. The nursery has had a makeover and now appears more welcoming and inviting. We receive monthly newsletters to keep us up to date with any changes or events. Our son really enjoys his time at nursery and has made great relationships with children and staff.
