  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rock a Tots Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.924 for Rock a Tots Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (135 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.924

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rock a Tots 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.417

  • 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 Rock a Tots Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

From day one I've felt the staff have put in 110%. My little girl enjoys her sessions greatly and looks forward to going each week. The contact log always has a great deal of information in it and if I need to speak to anyone about the feedback there is always someone available. Sometimes I ask for staff to follow a routine and this changes frequently, yet it's always followed. With regards to learning, I'm over happy. I have a 2-year-old who can count to 20, do her alphabet and knows her days of the week, which would not be the case without the staff at Rock a Tots. It's a shame we have only a short period of time left before school, but the time spent at Rock a Tots will have given my daughter all the skills and confidence to do well and I'm happy with that.

Rock a Tots is amazing! Our son (who is 11 months) has been going since February and he has settled so well; he doesn't cling to me when I leave and is very happy when I pick him up. I've noticed that he is a happier baby since he started going each day.
There are different rooms for the various ages of the children and as they grow they pass through; they all have the cutest names "Babbling Bunnies", "Curious Caterpillars!" Each room is light and colourful, making it a rich environment for learning and play. There are plenty of stimulating toys and activities so they will be hard pushed to get bored. I can't show how much I appreciate how friendly and professional the staff are; my son is so happy to go to them when he arrives but he has also waved goodbye when we leave. You can't make a baby fake it if he likes someone and he is one content baby! His development has also increased, he was advanced before but they give him all the support and stimulation he needs, and more! Thank you!

We moved to Rock A Tots at the beginning of the year(2017) and have been very impressed with their service. The children (4&1) love being there. They give us great hand overs morning and evening. Have a Tapestry entry every couple of weeks. Have a filled out diary every day and the children are usually pooped when they come home due to the fun/stimulation and learning they have had all day. The food is great to and they both really enjoy it.

First attending from 10 months and now 20 months the standard of care my son has received has been exceptional. For him, it's like a home from home and while there he has learnt good social skills and his confidence continues to grow. The staff are very warm and welcoming, always listen to any concerns that I may have as a parent. Every morning my son goes to them with open arms and I think this speaks volumes.

The manager and her team are excellent and go above and beyond to accommodate child and parent. My son has settled in really well to the nursery environment and I credit this to the manager and the girls looking after him. He is a very confident little boy and I am sure this is because he has been going to the nursery since he was 9 months old. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'Rock a Tots Day Nursery' to any parent.

The nursery was a relatively new establishment when I reviewed and then enrolled my daughter at 9 months old. The management were very thorough, assuring and answered all my questions. The only thing I ever asked for /fed-back was if a few of the diary entries could be clearer for my daughters activities, around the milk she drank/water. The food they provide is varied and the activities are nicely structured. Main thing is my daughter loves nursery - she puts her arms to the covers each time and smiles. She is happy.
