  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.722 for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Crumpsall is calculated as follows: ( (313 Excellents x 5) + (116 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 431 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Crumpsall is based on 24 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 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 15.6 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.

My son has attended Tiddlywinks Crumpsall since September 2014. The care he receives is excellent. I am confident he is safe, happy and well cared for. He speaks a lot about his nursery and all the things he has been learning about.

I was trying to find somewhere suitable for my daughter. My experience has been fantastic with the staff, the environment and the standards of the nursery. I would definitely recommend to others. My daughter looks so happy and is having the best time whilst I am at work. It is a great relief knowing that she is in such capable hands. We had great pleasure in seeing her photos whilst at work. The Mother's Day presents were lovely too. I would like to thank the staff for easing my pressure.

I have had 2 children who have attended this nursery from 4 months old. Both children have been nurtured and learnt so much from the nursery such as independence, social skills and language development.
My son transitioned to school and was ready to learn and is doing great and that is down to the staff's hard work.

My child is the 1st born so like every mother/father sending your child off to nursery, it can be daunting, to begin with. Tiddlywinks nursery and all its staff have been excellent from day 1, they have been attentive to my child's needs and have always responded to any concerns I might have had.
The friendly nature of the staff is so welcoming that I have no problems leaving my child there. I walk out of the door very fulfilled. My child has opened up so much since starting nursery and I just can't explain how happy I am about this.
I recommend this nursery to all my friends and family.

She is a confident child and I think this helps when making friends. Overall I would say the nursery caters to her needs daily and my daughter changes her mind daily.

The staff at Tiddlywinks Day Nursery are very nice and polite. They really look after my son. He always has something new to tell us or shows us something new that he has made when he comes home and they have actually helped us with some of the bringing up of our son. He has finally learnt how to share his toys with other kids.

My son started Tiddlywinks Nursery in September 205. I think highly of the nursery and all the staff that helped him settle in, they were brilliant with him and still are, they also supported myself as I found it hard letting go of my precious bundle. All the staff are very friendly, and they care about my boy and other children. I would recommend this nursery.
