Reviews

8.8 Twinkles Leeds Church Walk has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.782)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Twinkles Leeds Church Walk is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Twinkles Leeds Church Walk in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 4 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 4.847 for Twinkles Leeds Church Walk is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.847

  • 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 3.935 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Twinkles Leeds Church Walk 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.185

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

The girls taking care of our son are absolutely brilliant, he loves it at nursery and we feel very comfortable knowing he is well looked after. Twinkles could improve their customer focus in their management style, i.e try to remove the corporate chain approach where concerns around billing etc are dealt with centrally by someone the parents have never even met or spoken to.

My daughter has attended Twinkles for nearly 2 years starting at 9 months.
The care that she has received both developmentally and emotionally has been fantastic.
The children get to spend plenty of time outside and get to go out to local attractions such as the library and Royal Armouries.
I get regular updates on her development and have had plenty of support as we go through those 'tricky' stages.
A lovely environment and a great size nursery that has a really personal feel.
The meals are all made fresh on site with a wonderful cook. We have full visibility of the monthly menus and again have had real help and support when my little girl wouldn't eat.

My little boy has been attending Twinkles Leeds Church Walk for 2 years and I would highly recommend it. He has had brilliant care and carers all the time he's been there. He's very happy there and talks positively about his carers and other children in his room. The activities are great and he's learning how to be independent. I get regular updates on his progress and ideas of things to work on with him at home that link to what he is learning at the nursery. The nursery is well-run and there are regular stay and plays which are nice so you can spend time in the nursery with your child. They also go out to play too so they always get fresh air!

Absolutely fantastic nursery, knew this was the perfect place for my daughter to attend from our 1st visit.

My daughter has multiple food allergies and Twinkles Leeds have been fantastic catering to her needs from her 1st day at 8 months old when we were still learning what she was allergic too. From having suitable alternatives for her meals, ensuring she doesn't come into contact with the other childrens meals/snacks and reacting quickly if she ever had a reaction by administering her medication. Twinkles really set my mind at ease knowing she was in safe hands given how serious some of her reactions can be.

As parents we are regularly updated on what's happening within the whole nursery through the newsletters and having small room sizes means we get to know about her day in detail when we pick her up.

There's a great atmosphere at Twinkles, staff always look like they enjoy their job and provide a fun educational environment. It's lovely to see how well our daughter has progressed, originally she went for 1 day but increased it to two a week.

The children play out everyday and take regular trips to the market or museums, the outdoor area is very interactive and secure.

Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff and management. My only criticism is that some parents do not respect the rule of folding prams to fit into the pram shelter, there is enough space if they're folded down for everyone else!
