  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 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 4.986 for Tower Tots is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.986

  • 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 4.405 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tower Tots 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.405

I would like to give Tower Tots a 5* review on the basis that the all round care is outstanding! The facilities and outside space are clean and well kept and the grounds are beautiful. The staff and management are always helpful and all seem genuinely happy. The communication is also exceptional as they use the baby days app, so you get all your child's info to your phone. I could go on further but most importantly my child is very very happy here!

My son has attended Tower Tots nursery now for about 12 months and I can say that I am extremely pleased with all aspects of the care he receives. I have full confidence in the staff and management and their ability to look after my son and provide him with every opportunity available to allow him to develop in these important few years.

I particularly like the grounds that the nursery is set in and the amount of time that he spends outside. The food that is provided for him is excellent and I know that it is freshly prepared everyday by the staff. Having visited the nursery, I know the facilities are first class and he has lots of things to occupy his time. I particularly like when he gets messy either with the paints or water. I also really like the baby's day platform that is used by the nursery and I enjoy getting the diary entrees at the end of the day.

I would 100% recommend anyone who is thinking of sending their child to this nursery to do so.

I was looking for the perfect nursery to leave my first born son for one day a week before I go back to work, to then get him in 3 days a week. I visited a few nurseries in the area before to go Tower Tots. Tower Tots stood above everyone else to me for many reasons. The staff are very friendly and clearly qualified. The facilities have been built for purpose, which makes each room perfectly designed for the kid's age groups. They have a kitchen and chef on site, so every meal is prepared from scratch. Their online dairy updates are also great, you can get updates as the day goes on and it is particularly good for my husband who is often working away as he gets a good snapshot of our son's day at nursery before talking to me. The management team are very helpful too and flexible when needed. I am so happy I decided to put my son at Tower Tots from 8 months old, I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Our daughter has been going to this nursery for 13 months. We are very happy with the standard of learning. They provide a wide range of experiences for her. The nursery benefits from having good outdoor areas for the children to play in and these are utilised even in the winter. The menu provided for the children allows them to experience a wide variety of tastes with some lovely dishes. The chef also lets the children help make cake etc!

Choosing Tower Tots was the best decision we made. Our daughter is the happy, bright and confident toddler she is thanks to all the love and support she has had at Tower Tots. Seeing the pictures and reading the diary each day, you can see how much she enjoys it there and that makes it so much easier as working parents, knowing that your child is happy in a safe environment surrounded by people who care about her. Her key workers share our passion and enthusiasm for her development and she has come on so much through the activities she does every day here. We love everything about Tower Tots, the staff, the grounds, the facilities and would and have recommended to all our friends. When you drop your little one off in a morning and see how happy she is, playing with her friends and waving at the window you know you made the right decision choosing Tower Tots.
