  • 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 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tiddlywinks Day Nursery Ancoats is based on 6 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.417

My daughter really enjoys coming to the nursery and loves all the staff that work with her. There are always things going on at the nursery for the children to be involved with and the other children that come seem to love it just as much as my daughter.

Since my daughter came to this nursery in July 2016 she has come on so much. She is only 2 and she can count to 12, knows all her colours, recognise most of her numbers and can sing the alphabet.
She is really good at talking and telling me what she wants and is doing really well with her potty training.
This nursery is brilliant and all the girls are excellent at their jobs.
I always feel welcome, it's a lovely setting.

I would highly recommend this nursery. The nursery team was very helpful in making my little boy settle in so fast. My little boy enjoys the nursery very much that when he sees his picture on nursery website he gets excited! Also, the food is tasty and hygienic, that he loves finishing it every day. His language development and other skills have been significantly improved as we talk our native language in our home, I can see the development. The environment is lovely as well, with a fish tank and other pictures which he loves to touch while arriving and leaving the nursery. Finally, I'm simply amused by seeing most of the nursery staff recognising the names of each child at the nursery!!

Since starting at the nursery over a year ago, my daughter has been made to feel both happy and welcome. The communication between home and nursery is very good and I especially like the use of parentzone and the ability to contribute to my daughter's learning journey.
I am extremely satisfied with the care given to my daughter.

My daughter started at Tiddlywinks when she was 8 months old, which was earlier than I'd planned to return to work. From the very start the nursery staff, management and setting at Tiddlywinks put me at ease. I couldn't believe how quickly and easily my daughter settled - this made me even more confident that she was receiving excellent care. My daughter is now 2 and we struggle to get her to leave nursery when we come to pick her up because she has so much fun! I can see the huge benefits to my daughter's development that Tiddlywinks has had and I have every confidence in the staff who look after her. This is an excellent nursery, which is ridiculously good value for money and I would be very happy to recommend it to anyone who asked.

The staff at Tiddlywinks Day Nursery have been excellent with my son from day one. He settled very quickly with them, clearly because they are all so friendly and welcoming. They all include me in everything he does and the regular parent gatherings allow even more input. The setting is brilliant both inside and out, the play facilities are excellent and the site is very secure. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter started at Tiddlywinks Ancoats May 2015. I was extremely nervous and worried about her going to nursery as I had never needed to use one with my other 3 children. The staff were amazing and my little girl loves going to nursery everyday and has thrived during her time there. I couldn't have chosen a better place for her to be cared and nurtured whilst I am at work. The staff are always bright and bubbly not just with the children but with us parents too. Its always clean and fresh, even when the children are messy playing. A wonderful nursery and amazing staff. Almost like extended family.

Tiddlywinks is one of the best nurseries I know. Since I started taking my children to Tiddlywinks I cannot complain. The staff are so friendly and very welcoming. Whenever I come to drop my children off to the nursery the staff will always greet you with a smiley face and ask how you are doing. When leaving they will always see you to the door, they will always accompany you to the door and say goodbye. The nursery is always clean and he children well looked after or well cared for. I am very happy my children attend the nursery.
