Tots 2 Toddlers

Anders Hall, Jubilee Park, Milton Road, Waterlooville PO7 6AW

Tots 2 Toddlers Day Nursery has been established in Anders Hall since 2014 and is registered with Ofsted on the Early Years' Register to provide care for children from three months to five-years-old.

Facilities at this beautiful setting include a large hall for toddlers and preschool children, a smaller hall for the babies and an enclosed garden for outdoor play providing additional opportunities for the children. They've recently developed a 'Mini Forest School' garden to extend their learning and fun.

The EYFS is followed which sets the statutory standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to five- years-old. Staff aim to do this by learning through play, sometimes led by an adult but also by following the children's interests. They like to take the children out to visit different places such as farms, parks, woodlands, library and go on local walks.

With the flexible space, they can create different environments for walking and no-walking babies. They have direct access to the garden where they have a large space to explore and practice new skills. The babies also have access to the sensory room; the babies love the different sounds, sights and sensation that this area presents to them. This room is also used as a sleep room.

Fresh linen is provided daily for each child although you are welcome to supplement that with any individual sleeping items, sleeping bags, comforters that may be helpful for your child.

Toddlers and pre-school children have a bright and spacious room, allowing children to explore a range of defined areas: construction & small world area, writing table, reading corner, role play area, music station, investigation table, arts & crafts and tabletop games and puzzles.

Children love to be in the fresh air, to run around, to investigate the natural world and to generally get dirt beneath their nails! The garden is a wonderful learning and sensory journey.

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 4.778 for Tots 2 Toddlers is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 3.106 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tots 2 Toddlers is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.106

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

We have found Tots 2 Toddlers to be a friendly and nurturing environment for our eldest daughter who is now of pre-school age (she has been attending since she was 11 months old). They promote varied activities which have progressed our daughter’s learning. We are so pleased that our second daughter will be starting there shortly in the baby room.

Cheryl Breakspear, Owner at Tots 2 Toddlers responded to this review on 02 Dec 2015:

We love that the parents of our children entrust us and involve us in the early years of their life.

The staff and environment have provided everything my two children have needed to make outstanding progress since starting nursery/pre school. I feel confident my girls are cared for, occupied and given endless opportunities to learn and develop. I have and would recommend Tots 2 Toddlers.

I have rated food but it is based on dining environment, monitoring and communication of what has been eaten as I provide packed lunch.
