Hatching Dragons Nursery Twickenham

2 The Green, Twickenham Green, Twickenham TW2 5AA

Hatching Dragons is the UK's first bilingual Mandarin-English early years provision and their Twickenham nursery is the second early years nursery setting to join the group, with a third due to launch in Westminster in Spring 2018.

Hatching Dragons Twickenham maintains their ethos in a bilingual immersion model to maximise children's exposure to Mandarin Chinese with the explicit intention of fostering fluency in one of the world's most important languages.

The nursery is unashamedly intercultural in outlook, drawing on the best of the value systems, mythologies and fables of both China and "the rest" to ensure that children are given the most exciting, inspirational and magical curriculum they can, hopefully preparing them for a future in which multiculturalism and the intercultural understanding that is required to foster that multiculturalism will play a larger part.

The nursery has had noted successes in its delivery - Ofsted rated them 'good' with some 'outstanding' features for their provision at the Barbican and they're looking forward to making progress on that outcome at Twickenham, where they've spared no expense in the staff - many of which are degree level qualified practitioners, Montessori trained and /or skilled in applicable areas for early years excitement (e.g. they have a concert pianist and musician on staff for the Mandarin Music provision) - facilities, food (all organic and all provided by the wonderful team at Wildchild Kitchen) or learning materials for children.

Do visit and see for yourselves or visit the website to download the brochure. They're very much looking forward to meeting you.

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 4.833 for Hatching Dragons Nursery Twickenham is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hatching Dragons Nursery Twickenham is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250

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

  • Mother of Child
    2

As parents we can only say we are very happy with the decision to move our child to Hatching Dragons for many reasons, the most important one being tha we have full confidence in the sfaff. We feel that they are not only taking care of our child but also showing a real interestest in her development and wellbeing. They have a well planned set of activities each month and they surprise us with new and creative ones every day. They find a way to make the educational activities fun for the kids.

Another important aspect of the nursery is nutrition wich is taken very seriously; they provide a variety of very healthy, tasty and balanced meals.

The facilities are always clean and ready for a new day, plenty of toys and well equiped. The nursery promotes the involvement of the parent with monthly events that parents can attend.

I haven't even mentioned how extremely happy we are with the fact that our child is learning Mandarin.
