Reviews

9.3 Tilly-Mints Cherubs Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.251)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Tilly-Mints Cherubs Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tilly-Mints Cherubs Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.695 for Tilly-Mints Cherubs Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.695

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tilly-Mints Cherubs Day Nursery is based on 5 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.556

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

Reviewer Connection to Tilly-Mints Cherubs Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

My little boy has attended the nursery now since he was 7 months (he is now 2) and loves all the varied activities on offer. It is an excellent nursery that I would highly recommend to anyone. The staff genuinely care for the children and provide the love and stimulation you want for your child. His development has almost certainly been enhanced because of his attendance, he has already learnt so much and is a very sociable little boy always coming home singing songs that he has learnt and chatting about his best friend and staff. They also have an outdoor play area which is great as my child loves to be outside kicking a ball, climbing or playing on the bikes.

The staff really go the extra mile, nothing is too much trouble, they have met his dietary requirements of a milk free diet, and the help and support I have received from the nursery these last few months have been amazing I can't thank them enough!

Fantastic nursery. The staff are wonderful as I was a little scared leaving my daughter as she was so little but they have been great. My baby who is now 8 months loves going and loves the staff. I would highly recommend this nursery to everybody. It's such a delight to know when I'm at work my baby is getting looked after properly and with lots of love and care.

My daughter started Tilly-Mints in August 2016. We were both made to feel very welcome from the door being opened to us. Every day we are greeted with a friendly face. She has settled in fab! She has come on great with her speech and is always doing different activities each day, whether it be in or outdoors. They also offer a huge choice in different foods and keep a daily diary of their progress which is available to view any time.

Couldn't recommend Tilly-Mints enough - my son has been attending for just over a year and it is lovely to see how happy and content he is there. The staff are excellent and have a genuine interest in the care and development of my son. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tilly-Mints to parents!

Tilly-Mints Cherubs are wonderful with my 2-year old daughter who has Cerebral Palsy. They help her to fully integrate and enjoy all the activities on offer. Her confidence and independence have increased enormously over the 9 months she has been attending. This nursery caters to the needs of each individual child.

My daughter has absolutely flourished since joining Tilly-Mints and she absolutely adores her nursery. The staff are extremely friendly and you can see how much work they put in every day to keep the children happy and busy and always learning through their play. When my daughter first started I had some concerns about her development and the nursery have always kept me up to date with her progress and how they can help in any way to make sure she's ready to make the move to primary school this year. They also have some brilliant events for Easter and things which all the children are invited to which I think is lovely for the children to develop their friendships and enjoy the nursery with parents. I couldn't recommend Tilly-Mints enough and we'll definitely miss them when my little girl leaves for primary school.

When my daughter started she was the youngest baby at the nursery, the staff made me feel comfortable since day one and I felt completely at ease. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone and they respect your child's routine. My daughter is always smiling when I go to pick her up and always doing something different, often playing outside. The staff always provide a sheet to take home with what she has done every day including what she has ate/drank and how much sleep she has had. Could not fault the staff and they made going back to work a lot easier.
