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 4.806 for Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Tots Leavesden is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.806

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Tots Leavesden 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.500

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

Reviewer Connection to Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Tots Leavesden

  • Mother of Child

My son has been attending Ashbourne Day Nurseries at Tots Leavesden for a year and a half now and I could not be more pleased with the service! He is always talking about the staff members and his friends and he will quite often role-play scenarios from his time spent at nursery when at home! There is such a homely feel to the nursery, you can really see that they care and genuinely love what they do!!! The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. The individual care that the staff and management team provide is amazing, always making me feel that my needs and my child's needs are important and valued! I had another baby 5 months ago and I am due to return to work in January and although I am apprehensive about this in general, I could not feel more at ease about my childcare arrangements, knowing that my baby girl and my son will be getting the best possible care whilst I am away from them.

Thank you Holly for your kind words.

My son has been attending Tots for over 2 years now and he absolutely loves it.

As a parent, I feel very confident in leaving my child at the nursery. The management is very skilled, the staff are amazing and very caring and the activities are great. The nursery delivers everything that I wished for.

Thank you for your kind words Renata.

My daughter has attended Tots for nearly two years and we couldn’t be happier. Most days she can’t wait to go in the mornings and always is full of excitement when she tells me all about her day when I pick her up. Staff are brilliant and always on hand to chat to about any concerns we have. I always know she will be happy and so well looked after which makes leaving her so much easier.

Thank you, Michelle, for your kind words.

All 3 of my children have been to Tots from the age of 6 months old. They have played such an important part in my children's lives and have supported, me as a full-time working mum, to feel confident and secure in their happiness. I can't thank them enough for all that they do and feel lucky that my children are being looked after so well by fantastic staff who they feel are part of their family. Thank you Tots!!

Thank you, Sam for your kind words.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for nearly three years and she loves it. Sometimes, when I pick her up she doesn't want to leave. The staff are friendly, helpful and very attentive to the children. It means I can go to work and do my job with the peace of mind that my daughter is in safe hands. Thank you.
