  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Teddies Tots 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 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.911 for Teddies Tots Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (176 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.911

  • 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 4.636 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Teddies Tots Day Nursery is based on 7 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.636

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

9.5 Teddies Tots Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.547) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.9 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time

My daughter starts big school in September. This is her last week at nursery after two years and it's going to be emotional. As a parent, I can't recommend this nursery highly enough. If you can't have family take care of your child, Teddies Tots is the next best thing. The love, care, attention, teaching skills, even the well thought out menus are second to none. They even held a little graduation ceremony for all the leavers. Every single carer here have become like a best friend to my daughter, they have created awesome memories for her and genuinely helped her grow into a little girl ready for school.

My son joined Teddies Tots Day Nursery when he was 7 months old. Overall I am satisfied with all nursery procedures, staff, cleanliness and they are welcoming. I must admit it was so difficult to find the right nursery but from the time perspective, I made the best choice choosing Teddies Tots Day Nursery. My son is improving a lot and developing quickly. He attended the baby group where his key person gave him the best care and love. Recently, he moved to toddlers group as he turned 16 months. He does not speak yet but he is always happy there and willing to go in the mornings when I drop him off. He is full-time and has been since he started. Only one minor issue which is the garden area could be bigger and more green.

Teddies is an extremely professional establishment which has a friendly, positive approach. All of the staff are engaging and are active to assist in the development of all the children. There always appears to be structure and substance to aid in the children's development. Staff clearly take pride in their work and show an enthusiasm to share the progressions. We are delighted to have found Teddies and wouldn't think twice about recommending this to family and friends.

Teddies Tots is the perfect nursery setting. Our Daughter started at 10 months and has developed so much in the 8 months she has been there and I have a lot to thank the nursery for. My Husband is a deputy head at a primary school and had high expectations. When we looked at the nursery from the moment we came to visit Teddies Tots we knew it was the caring, nurturing environment we wanted. Our Daughter looks forward to nursery and does something new and imaginative every day. I already don't want her to leave.

My daughter has been here for nearly 2yrs and she loves going to this nursery it’s more like family, all the staff are so friendly and they do so much with the children my daughter will never be bored and has learned so much. The food is amazing too all cooked fresh, my daughter quite often has lunch and tea x2 sometimes x3 portions and so much variety. Seeing my daughter so happy makes my day at work so much easier.

My son has been at Teddies Tots for 2 years now. He has thrived there, the staff are so caring and knowledgeable. He was quite shy at first and didn't want to mix with the other children. He now has lot's of lovely friends, is confident and mixes well.
I am informed every day of the activities he has done, with daily sheets and updates on his progress. The nursery is run extremely well, it is more of a small family than a nursery atmosphere. It is lovely going to work and feeling happy when your Son looks so forward to going into nursery.

Teddies Tots has been a good nursery for my daughter for the last year. The staff have been welcoming, caring and informative. My daughter settled easily. She has learnt and developed. She performs lots of activities and has formed good relationships with her carers.

Lovely little nursery, personalised care for every child. My son was here from when he was 1 yr to 2 yrs old.
The carers were so loving and the owner runs the place amazingly well.
Can't recommend the place enough.

My daughter has attended Teddies Tots Nursery for over a year now and despite us moving out of the Watford area 5 months ago, we continue to bring her to this nursery as I simply would not have her anywhere else! She is extremely happy here and loves to share stories about what her friends and teachers get up to. The staff are extremely attentive, well-informed, friendly, helpful and genuinely interested and passionate about their profession and the children they are trusted with. It astonished myself and my partner one day when we were at a zebra crossing with our then 2-year-old and she instructed us to "Listen with your ears, look with your eyes, no cars here? Hold hands tightly and go!" - She had been learning road safety that week. Our daughter has thrived socially since attending this nursery and has learned important social and developmental skills. I would definitely recommend Teddies Tots to anyone looking for child care in the Watford area and I wouldn't have my daughter anywhere else.

My Grandchildren started off attending Teddies Tots nursery on a part time basis doing only a few mornings a week. However this was increased last month to full time hours purely because of how well they were doing. The staff are outstanding, kind, attentive and generally lovely people. The nursery is always kept clean and safe. There are two gates to go through before you can get into the nursery and to open the door from the inside would be impossible for the children to do as the handle is higher up.

I love collecting the children from nursery as just looking around the room you can see how active and creative they are. There are lots of drawings, painting, photos and actively boards. The staff always inform me of how good the children have been, what they have done during the day, what food they have eaten and it is so lovely to hear how excited the children are about attending Teddies Tots.

I have two boys that attend Teddies Tots Nursery on a full time basis and wouldn't have them anywhere else. Both boys run into nursery every single morning and can not wait to start their day with the other children and staff member's. I love how they always bring home pictures that they have drawn or painted, cards that they have made on special occasions and even snacks that they have baked that day. It's great to see how creative they are and have even noticed how their behaviour and home has become much more relaxed. Both boy's love reading books and telling me what activities they have done that day and what new things they have learnt.
I would recommend Teddies Tots Nursery to everyone, the staff are excellent, very kind and gentle with the children and know exactly what the children are like on a personal level. I am always kept updated on how their day has been. It is so lovely to see that our children enjoy going to this particular nursery.

Teddies Tots Day Nursery is by far the best nursery we have used for our boys. They love going there and look forward to seeing the staff members every day. We have noticed a significant change in their learning since attending Teddies Tots. They come home with a new word/phrase every single day and love singing the songs that were sang that day. The staff are extremely attentive to each child's individual needs and will always up date you on how your child's day has been. We are so pleased that our children attend Teddies Tots and are very thankful for all the hard work they put in. We have noticed our children becoming so much more independent in everything they do. We love Teddies Tots and will be sad to have our children grow up and have to move onto school.

Thank you to everyone at Teddies Tots we are so very grateful and thankful for how well are boys have developed while being in your care

My son has attended the nursery since late 2015; he had been cared for by family and the move to a nursery setting was daunting for me. I shouldn't have worried, as he was immediately welcomed and we had no issues with settling him into the nursery.

We receive daily updates on his progress and have recently attended his first parents evening. I've been pleased with how his verbal communication has significantly improved since joining, and how the nursery has supported with his potty training.

Overall, I feel the team truly care for my son and his development. Most importantly, he enjoys going to nursery and is always happy when we talk about the days events.

My daughter goes to Teddies Tots full time as myself and my wife work full time. We couldn't have asked for a more friendly and home from home nursery, with kind, caring staff and a warm welcoming environment. We feel comfort in knowing she has freshly cooked food daily and lots of fun activities to aid her development in a clean, new, stimulating environment.
We would fully recommend Teddies Tots Day Nursery to any parent looking for a nursery for their child.
