Reviews

8.8 TippyToes Stantonbury Nursery has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.768)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for TippyToes Stantonbury Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for TippyToes Stantonbury Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 5 for TippyToes Stantonbury Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.768 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for TippyToes Stantonbury Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.268

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

I fell in love with TT as I drove up. I love the atmosphere, it feels like home, not only the location/setting but also staff, it has a family feel. All staff really enjoy spending time and working with my girls, she is comfortable here. I like it's a family run business, this makes my visits very personal. It’s like being part of the family. I feel happy every day leaving my girls. I would not want them anywhere else. I love the different rooms, children can move around & do different things. They can independently use the toilet.

Outside space is amazing, she really enjoys the gardening session, learning about plants and growing new things. New areas have been introduced; climbing frame, garden kitchen, playhouse, insect hotel.
She has enjoyed yoga sessions. Home cooked meals are great.

There is always someone to talk to if I have any concerns/queries.
We will miss all the staff. You all are fantastic, she has grown up here and has become a fantastic, confident girl, that’s thanks to you all.

We currently have my son at Tippy Toes.
I wouldn't place my children anywhere else. I actually moved out of the area over a year ago but still work nearby. I looked at other nurseries when I moved from a location to home perspective and no other nursery compared, things that stood out were, room sizes, activities, outdoor space, policies including administering medication, price, staffing, opening hours, the homely feeling you get when you walk in.
In my opinion, there is no better nursery they could attend, the staff offer such a personalised approach to each individual child. They complete multiple different activities daily with all age groups. The handover that you receive at the end of your child's day is detailed and if you have any questions they will always be answered. Having had my son in all 4 of the rooms at Tippy Toes I can see how he has grown there.
Parents evenings and the freedom to speak to the staff at any point make the communication between staff and parents easy.

The team at TippyToes are brilliant. Having a dedicated team to look after my son on a daily basis has allowed me to easily return to work, knowing my son is in safe hands. Being an adopted baby with a difficult start in life, he was always incredibly nervous around other people. He was terrified of noise and commotion, but within a month of care from the TippyToes team, he was like a different child.

The team take a real interest in his favourite things each week and make a point of developing daily activities around this. They spend a huge amount of time in the gardens, which they have recently had a great new climbing frame built, (which my son loves).

The food is freshly prepared on site every day. We are always kept up to date with what he has been eating, (with his current appetite, he is usually having two helpings of every meal).
