  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.833 for Twizzle Tops Day Nursery South Woodham is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.545 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Twizzle Tops Day Nursery South Woodham 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.545

My two children who are 18 months and 3.5 years old both attend the nursery. They enjoy the outside and seeing the animals interacting with nature. The elder child loves the staff and has grown in confidence.

My eldest loves the nursery and the girls working there. I think it is fantastic that they get fresh air every day and enjoy seeing the animals on the farm. He is always exhausted after a day at the nursery! His talking has come on really well which is all down to the girls at the nursery. My youngest will be joining him May as well.

My daughter has been with Twizzle Tops since its first week of opening (she was just 5 months old). She's now 20 months and still adores going to nursery. I've never had a problem dropping her off - she goes happily to any of the nursery staff who greet us at the door. She eats all the food and is subsequently a great eater. Being located on Marsh Farm, she simply adores animals and her first words were mainly animal names and noises. I love it when she brings home pictures and special Christmas and mothers/Father's Day cards with hand and footprints and other things she's stuck on. As a full-time working mum (and dad), I love that she can enjoy all the songs, games and creative activities that I simply do not have the time to do with her at home. She is developing good social skills and is not intimidated by new faces or new situations. It really was the best decision we have made for her to get the best start in life and we consider ourselves very lucky.

My daughter has attended Twizzle Tops full time since August 2016 and we have nothing but positive things to say about the nursery.
The staff are wonderful, they are friendly, polite, helpful and they go out of their way to make the children feel safe and ensure that they have fun at all times. There has been many an early morning drop off where I have arrived at the nursery frazzled and stressed and left with a smile on my face because you can't help but be cheered up by their positive attitudes.
My daughter has flourished there and has gone from being fairly shy and reserved to being full of beans. I have an older son and as a result, have a lot of experience with childcare providers and I just wish Twizzle Tops had been around when he was younger because it is such an amazing facility.
My daughter regularly asks to go at the weekends and is disappointed when she finds out she can't, which is definitely a good sign.
It's an amazing place, I feel lucky to have found it.

I have two little ones that attend this nursery and they couldn't be happier here. From going to the farm each day to having exclusive access to the bouncy pillows and indoor play area, each day brings its own excitement.
The staff at the nursery are really great with the children, creating a fun, exciting environment for them to enjoy, I love seeing my two literally run into the nursery each morning waiting for the fun to begin.

The online learning journal that has just been introduced is a great addition to their journey and means that if you don't always get to speak to the staff in full at collection times, you can keep up with what your child(ren) have been doing during their day.
We have used childminders in the past and I had my reservations about a nursery as thought it would be less personal but how wrong I was.
Well done Twizzle Tops - keep up the fantastic work.
Makes leaving them a whole lot easier for us parents to know they are so settled, safe and happy.
