Overview

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Aristo-Tots 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 41 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Aristo-Tots Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 28 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 4.867 for Aristo-Tots Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (430 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 490 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 Aristo-Tots Nursery is based on 28 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 28 Reviews ÷ 12 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 been at Aristo-Tots for over 2 years now and he loves it and is developing really well. There’s a lovely balance between play and learning which I think is really important during their early years. More recently, they have really started to incorporate external companies into the nursery, ensuring that despite attending nursery, the children are not missing out on music groups and sports activities while we’re working, which in my opinion is fab! Our youngest son will also be starting at Aristo-Tots in the summer.

Thank you for your lovely review.

The care of the children is excellent. The staff are caring and knowledgeable. The nursery maintains excellent communication with parents and endeavours to create a community with parent and child teas, family fun days, Christmas events etc. We are extremely grateful as parents for the fantastic work they do and the progress our daughter has made in their care. Would not hesitate to strongly recommend.

Thank you for your lovely review. It is always a pleasure caring for the children and seeing them thrive.

Aristotots Nursery is a home from home. The staff are warm and friendly and genuinely care about each and every child. The nursery is always spotlessly clean, new equipment, and always fun activities to do. My daughter loves her time at the nursery and has grown in confidence and learnt so much! I feel happy that my child is getting such care and education.

A great setting with everything your child needs to have a happy and educational time at nursery. My child has attended the setting between 1 and 4 yrs old and has made significant progress in all aspects of learning. The facilities are great and the outside spaces are really good. The glue that holds it all together are the wonderful staff. Always friendly, helpful, caring and kind. Can't recommend this place enough!!

My son loves coming to Aristo-Tots Nursery, sometimes it's sad for me that he runs to them in the morning and doesn't seem sad that I'm going to work. He enjoys every activity that the girls plan for him, especially messy play.
They have new toys and resources often in all rooms and in the garden too.
Observations system that you can see photos and videos on Tapestry of your child is amazing and such a nice memory :)

I am glad we chose this nursery for our son.

I have had both of my children at Aristo-Tots, one has left and gone to school a very happy and confident little boy. My youngest is currently in the ladybird room and adores his key person and staff that look after him.

The transition between caterpillar room and ladybird room was made stress free for my son and myself, he has got used to the routine and goes in without any fuss and isn’t bothered about going home with his dad, come the afternoon.

All members of staff are all friendly and give information over to both myself and my partner.

The safeguarding of the children is obviously one of the top priorities which can be seen from all staff.

Claire Lewis, Nursery Manager at Aristo-Tots Nursery responded to this review on 11 Jan 2018:

Thank you for your lovely review.

We absolutely love it here at Aristotots! We have previously struggled to find a nursery in the area that we felt comfortable leaving our child in, luckily she now goes here!

We get daily feedback about her food and other care needs as well as an update on all of the activities she has been taking part in that day.
The staff are really kind and as the nursery is small we feel they are able to provide a greater level of care and attention, really getting to know the children and their individual needs.

We are so happy to know that we have made the right decision in choosing Aristotots, our daughter is very happy and can't wait to go every day.

We are extremely happy with Aristo-Tots Nursery. Our daughter has been attending the setting since she was 10 months old (who is currently 3 years old) - so she has been a part of every room at the nursery. She was supported with each transition stage and is very pleased to now be a 'Butterfly', telling me every day that she's now a butterfly!

When her sister was born in June, nursery supported her through this change - she became more clingy at drop-offs when she realised that mummy was at home - everyone helped her through this, and she is now asking to go to nursery daily. The nursery is 'homely' and welcoming. We signed the baby up to secure her space before she was born as we know this is the right place to send our children!

Our daughter has varied experiences at nursery and loves taking part in the different activities on offer - the garden is fabulous and the dance studio a fab space.
Staff are fantastic.

My daughter was welcomed into Aristo-Tots with open arms. All the staff are so lovely and I know my child is in caring hands.
The staff are up to date on observations and I am so happy with the way she is developing even though she is only there part-time.
If there is ever a problem I know I can talk to the management team and if I ever need emergency childcare for my daughter Aristo-Tots have always done their best to help me.

Excellent nursery. Thank you.

Thank you for your lovely review Claire - it's a joy to look after your daughter.

Aristo-Tots Nursery offers a clean and safe environment with great facilities both indoor and outdoor.
My daughter has been going to the nursery since she was 12 months old and she loved each day (she is 3.5 years old now).

The nursery has also the added benefit of having off-street parking and good opening times, making it an ideal choice for the full-time working parents.
We couldn't have chosen a better option for our little one!

Thank you so much for your lovely review Marco.

Really pleased with Aristo-Tots nursery. My child is very settled there and the staff are always helpful if we have had any questions.

It would be useful to know more about the activities they are doing during the day - possibly more posts on tapestry? But appreciate this is quite time-consuming.

Really like the monthly newsletter that is now coming through.

Would recommend Aristo-Tots to friends and have already confirmed a place for my second child to start next year.

Thank you for your lovely review. It is a joy looking after the children every day.

My son has been going to nursery for six months now from the age of ten months and I can not recommend this nursery enough. I have never had a problem dropping him off as he is always so happy to be there. I feel the staff know my son really well and are always so welcoming and approachable.
I was really worried about going back to work and my son being looked after by someone else but I have no concerns at all. It’s a pleasure to pick him up and see him so happy.
Thank you all!

First impressions were very good, a clean and spacious environment and happy children playing.

Upon our visit, it was clear how paramount safety is at the nursery.
As well as the importance of nutritional food.

The facilities are wonderful. Plenty of toys and activities for children of all ages. A fun and secure outside space. Even a little dance studio.

Our girl has been at Aristo-Tots Nursery for 6 months now and she loves it. The staff really care for the children, which shows in the lovely relationships our girl has built with them.

Every day she comes home talking about all of the fun she has had that day.
It's lovely to see how her social skills, confidence and learning have all grown.

The nursery is very professional, and I always feel well informed on our daughter's progress, either through daily conversations with the staff, the online tapestry updates, or the makes that she brings home with her.

I am so glad we chose Aristo-Tots Nursery.

Both our children have attended Aristo-Tots since 2015. My daughter has now moved on to school but my son still attends. I would rate this nursery very highly, it is very well managed, clean, spacious, lots of activities, toys and interaction with the staff.

A lovely nursery setting. Large semi-open plan rooms and dedicated areas for different activities so the children aren't all on top of each other, but have the opportunity to socialise with younger and older children as well as those in their specific room. Clean and simple, with decorations by the children themselves. The garden is a lovely size, and the indoor dance studio provides another area for play.
My son has really grown in confidence since going here. All the staff are so kind and gentle with their charges, and my son's key worker demonstrates a genuine affection for him. I've been very supported with cloth nappies and potty training. Support for charities, carol concerts etc makes it feel like a little community for the children.
The food is varied and nutritious, with the occasional treat!
Very pleased with Aristotots!

My eldest started at Aristo-Tots Nursery from the moment they opened and I knew that any future children of mine would attend too. It's such a lovely clean nursery with a great outdoors playing area, there is a huge range of toys and activities for the children, all the staff are lovely and I have never had any complaints. They are very supportive and easy to talk to. I would always recommend them to anyone with no hesitation!

Our son has been at Aristotots since May and has settled in extremely well. He loves going and has become a lot more sociable and has made lots of friends, who he talks about at home and asks to attend nursery at weekends!
The staff are all very friendly and professional and update us each day on how he's been. The food is all home cooked and our son eats very well.

I cannot rate this nursery highly enough! Superbly managed with great staff behind her. My son is a bit delayed with his development and the staff accommodates to all his needs. A real loving and caring environment.

My son was fourteen months when he started at Aristo Tos. The first time I looked round the setting, instantly knew I wanted to send him there, the staff were so welcoming, professional and caring, it just felt right to send him there. The cleanliness, the structure and meals are fantastic. My son settled in from day one, he barely cried when leaving him, and even caries on playing when I walk in the room to collect him, he's not bothered about me in the slightest. He's progressed hugely whilst being there as the staff are very encouraging.
