The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Twinkles Oxford Place - Leeds City Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Twinkles Oxford Place - Leeds City Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 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 Twinkles Oxford Place - Leeds City Centre is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 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 4.917 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Twinkles Oxford Place - Leeds City Centre is based on 11 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). 11 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.917

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

We transferred from another Twinkles site when Oxford Place opened, due to its excellent location. Having been very happy at our previous setting, I was nervous-but from the first day he was very happy!

The staff are very kind and caring with wonderfully creative minds for activities for both learning and play.

Any concerns are dealt with swiftly and professionally and with my child's development and happiness as a priority.

I receive regular updates on progress and activities through social media, email and also verbally from both managerial and room staff.

Facilities are bright, clean and new and larger than you would expect from a city centre nursery.

My child's day is filled with reading stories, dancing, phonics, art, sand, water, kite making, role play, baking, trips to the local library/shops and playing outside or in the soft play. He is challenged, encouraged, entertained! Very happy!

I was anxious about my son starting nursery at 7.5 months but the staff at Twinkles have been absolutely fantastic and have helped him to settle in and love nursery! The quality of care is outstanding and the nursery nurses clearly genuinely care about the happiness and development of each child. Since starting at Twinkles, my son has learnt so many new skills and I notice a change in him every week. He is growing into a clever and independent young child and this is definitely thanks to the excellent nursery provision!

Twinkles Nursery is a brilliant setting. My daughter goes in with a big smile and leaves with a big smile on her face. This shows me that she loves being in the nursery. All the staff are very friendly and professional.
The environment is extremely clean and stimulating. The classroom is bright and spacious and it provides a wide range of excellent activities and toys. The set up of the classroom encourages my daughter to become an independent and inquisitive child.

Twinkles Nursery at Oxford Place is an absolutely amazing nursery.
I had a full year off of work when my daughter was born and by my return to work she was very attached to me and still breastfeeding, so I was understandably nervous about her starting nursery.
Twinkles arranged settling in sessions, helped me plan supplying pumped milk for a while, asked loads of questions about how to help my daughter settle in and even emailed me an update on her progress on her first day.
For a while I was just so pleased she genuinely seemed to love going to Twinkles, but now I've noticed a real change in her. She's developing new social skills, as she now gets to socialise with lots of other children. She's getting regular opportunities to participate in creative activities that it would be very difficult to recreate at home. I still feel very much a part of her care. With Twinkles everything is a collaborative effort and it's bringing a wonderful new dimension to my daughter's development.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since January and has so far been thriving in the positive environment provided by the staff.
I feel her continued presence here will help her learn and adapt as she gets older.

Brilliant care, and very accommodating of special requirements, with no problems. Our daughter's been coming since the nursery opened and always comes home having had a good time.
Definitely recommended.

The facilities at the nursery are excellent with a wide range of activities and toys, including a well stocked outdoor area and soft play area in the basement.
The staff take a genuine interest in my daughter and work hard to ensure she develops well and meets/exceeds all milestones.
As a result, she is happy at the nursery and is progressing well.
The nursery also provides healthy food options and a wide range of different recipes.

We moved from another Twinkles as the facilities at Oxford Place are great and the d├ęcor and the equipment are all new - so it's a really nice environment. The staff there are great - really friendly and enthusiastic. My son settled in quickly and clearly enjoys his time there.

I am so happy with Twinkles Oxford Place. My son loves it there.
You are always greeted with a warm smile by the staff when dropping off and picking up your child. The staff are so happy and caring, which is what you want when you are leaving your child for the day.
The nursery itself is spotlessly clean. They have a wide variety of toys and activities for the children to play with and go outside every day if the weather allows. It's like leaving my little boy with family!
