Reviews

10 Tender Years Day Nursery has a Review Score of 10 (9.954)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Tender Years Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tender Years Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.954 for Tender Years Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (103 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.954

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tender Years Day Nursery is based on 9 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 7 Target Reached = 1

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

I am very pleased to say that Tender Years Nursery is fantastic. I would highly recommend this nursery to friends and family. All staff are well mannered, friendly, polite and professional. My son absolutely loves coming to nursery, his speech, learning and knowledge have come on such a long way since being at Tender Years. I also love the elog which updates me on his day while he’s at nursery. The nursery itself is very clean, bright and spacious. My son enjoys the meals that the nursery provides and there is always something different for him to try. Definitely one of the best nurseries around!

Since starting nursery my little boy has come on leaps and bounds, all the staff at Tender Years have done a fantastic job with him. The nursery itself is fantastic and all the staff are well mannered and have the children's best interest at heart.
It's such a caring environment which makes me 100 times better leaving my child in their care. Everything about the nursery itself to the children's learning journeys is just incredible. The effort they put in to help your child where they aim to be is just amazing. I would highly recommend Tender Years nursery to family and friends.

My son has been coming here since 2014. He has loved every minute. He has come out of his shell and made lots of new friends. His speech has improved so much. It's a big family and that why children feel so safe and happy here. Since coming Tender Years, the changes have been amazing and I can't wait to see the improvements continue. Well done to all. Thank you for everything.

My son has been at Tender Years since Autumn 2013 and it continues to be fantastic for his educational, social, physical and emotional development. He loves spending time there with his aunties, friends, and in the wonderful space available - especially the massive garden and fantastic preschool space upstairs. They offer a brilliant and varied range of foods (how you got him to eat 2 portions of moussaka I shall never know!). I would 100% recommend Tender Years to friends and strangers alike!

It's a pleasure having him at our nursery and seeing him gain confidence and develop.

Both of my children attend this nursery. It's exactly what I wanted for my them, home from home, caring staff and staff that understand how hard it is to leave your children whilst at work. The staff are amazing and can't do enough for you or your children, my two have built some wonderful relationships with all of them. They love nursery so much it's always a battle to get them home at the end of the day which is a good sign!!!

Rachel Critchley, Owner at Tender Years Day Nursery responded to this review on 03 Mar 2017:

It's lovely to have her in our nursery and watch her grow and develop.

My daughter has been coming here since she was 8 months old, It is such a massive thing to leave your child in someone else's care but they make it so much easier. Staff are always happy, positive and caring.
My daughter has always loved coming to nursery and has come on leaps and bounds. The staff are really friendly and always there for advice and support if needed, all you have to do is ask. The new refurbishments are amazing and the children are going to benefit so much from it. The nursery has such a relaxed homely atmosphere and we have built up such strong bonds with all the staff it is going to be hard to say goodbye, but I know and will always be so grateful for how they have helped shape my little girl into the confident little character she is today.
Thank you very much to you all!
