    The Review Score of 9.558 for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd is based on 16 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.847 for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (161 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 190 Ratings = 4.847

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. 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 care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

      The Quantity Score of 4.711 for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd is calculated as follows:

      1. 16 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 16 Positive Reviews = 1.600 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (16 Positive Reviews ÷ 45 Children) x 2 = 0.711

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of child places at the Day Nursery.

Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

  • We receive approximately 40% of Reviews/Recommendations through website submission and 60% of Reviews/Recommendations through Review/Recommendation Cards (only available to Enhanced / Premium Services more info).

My daughter has been coming here for around four years, and my son since February 2015. Bright Stars are a very well established nursery. The girls in the baby room are fantastic, it's like home from home for my son. My daughter gets collected from school, she really enjoys her time here. Everyone is great.

Bright Stars has been home away from home for my two daughters. They're cared for in a safe, loving environment with the opportunity to learn new things everyday. Basic care is excellent and are given a healthy and varied menu each week for snacks/lunch. The staff are all very lovely and helpful. Facilities are fantastic and always very clean. There's no other place I'd rather take my two little girls. I think its great and always recommend it anyone who is looking for a nursery.

We are delighted that our daughter has a place at Bright Stars. The nursery was highly recommend by a good friend. Our daughter often greets staff by putting her arms out, which makes us feel confident that the staff are doing their job right, as she wants to be there. She can't wait to start playing when she arrives each day and begin joining in with the daily activities. She seems to enjoy all the different varieties of food that she is given.

When I first visited Bright Stars I knew there and then it was the nursery I wanted my daughter to attend. I love how homely it feels and the staff are so experienced. My daughter loves it here and there is no where else I would want to her to go. The facilities are amazing, indoor and out! I would definitely recommend.

Our little girl started at Bright Stars almost a year ago and we have been impressed by all areas. The staff are wonderful, taking account of the personal interest of our child. My daughter's key worker is a credit to the establishment. She is always keeping us well informed about our daughter's progress and what she has been up to. The Bright Stars setting is what we all love about the nursery, it is a home from home. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
