Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.905 for Meithrinfa Twts Tywi Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (228 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 252 Ratings = 4.905

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 Meithrinfa Twts Tywi Nursery is based on 15 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 7.2 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.

9.9 Meithrinfa Twts Tywi Nursery has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.905) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.9 out of 5 from 21 Reviews over all time

An excellent nursery that goes the extra mile for the children in their care. A lot of thought and planning goes into activities that will engage all the children together. The staff are excellent and incredibly caring. My children love to go here.

Meithrinfa Twts Tywi Nursery have with all 3 of my children (attended over the last 2 years) given a level of care and attention to detail beyond any expectation I could have ever had. They are always adding to facilities and services and the recent move to a digital recording of all information relevant to the Childs day is particularly impressive and very useful especially if someone has collected my child on my behalf.
We get invited to discuss our child’s development- this is great as the service provided for children by health visitors beyond a few months of age is very uninspiring. The staff see how your child is developing in comparison with other children so can really give you a feel for their level of development and if there is anything as a parent I can do.
The facilities and staff who are all very professional but also as important to me is their approachability- they always give me time to discuss anything that might be relevant to my child that particular day.

The nursery has been supportive, welcoming and so kind, the location is perfect for us and the overall layout of the nursery is exceptional. My son attends 2 days a week since he was 6 months old and he loves it! The staff are amazing with him. I love receiving reports at the end of the day so I can see what he has done. Since attending he has gained so many new skills. Every day is a new activity. It's worth every penny by the smile on his face. :)

This is a great nursery, offering a well-maintained creche for little ones to learn and enjoy, in a fun, purpose-built environment. The equipment is updated often and money is spent on new items to enhance the child's learning regularly (this is something I have noticed over the 3 years my baby has been attending). The nursery employs a variety of staff of differing ages, however, they are all friendly, approachable, professional and very hard working - ensuring our little ones have the best of care at all times. I have 2 toddlers who attend, they both love going, their days are varied, they can be painting, cooking, taking a walk in the sunshine to see trains, flowers and animals, designing a mother's day card or playing outside in the child-focused garden. I have full peace of mind whilst they are here, and we thoroughly recommend Twts Tywi.

All members of staff have been so welcoming since day one. They put both parents and children at ease, providing structure and routine and allowing parents to feel reassured that their child will be cared for in the best possible environment.
The range of activities and the time invested by staff to ensure that the environment is colourful and educational caters for the child's developmental needs. The warm nature of the staff team results in the nursery becoming an extended part of your family.

I wanted a welcoming, caring, child development focused environment for my children. I get all that and more from Twts Tywi. Highly recommended. My daughter started there with no welsh and is now fluent, she is ranked highly in terms of readiness for school because of the work done with her. My baby boy is now 10 months and I was so comfortable to leave him at Twts Tywi when I go to work.

My child has attended Twts Tywi for the last year and has settled in well. Staff ensured he fitted in within the activities and the other children and has had great opportunities to learn through play. The child enjoys attending the nursery and you know that they are happy when you leave there in the morning and will be looked after to a very high standard. Well recommended to anyone considering sending their child to the nursery.

As a mother of two children who have attended the nursery, my youngest being only 7 weeks old when starting, I cannot speak highly enough of a fantastic facility they provide. I was 100% happy knowing my youngest would be cared for in the exact way that I suggested, taking extreme care to nurture and love her as I do at home. My oldest has had several pick ups and drop offs to school with the nursery, and is constantly asking to go back.

My son started at the nursery when he was 8 months old in November 2015, the week the nursery opened. I have used a different local nursery for my two other sons prior to Twts Tywi opening, however I must say that the standard of care and support provided to my son is excellent, above and beyond previous experiences.

As a working mother Meithrinfa Twts Tywi Nursery is a very important part in our family life day routine. Excellent nursery, fantastic staff, run professionally, brilliant staff communication between them and myself as a parent. I have got happy children and their knowledge and understanding and ability is a lot to do with effort of management and staff to ensure that the children are safe, happy and always learning through play. I have a 1 1/2 year old boy, well 2 years old by now, but when 1 1/2 was counting up to 10, just to name one activity. I speak highly of Meithrinfa Twts Tywi Nursery, have no reason to do otherwise, with no complaints, I can only thank them all for that they do. Where would we be without them?
