  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brightsparks Day Nursery, Old Coulsdon in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.824 for Brightsparks Day Nursery, Old Coulsdon is calculated as follows: ( (168 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.824

  • 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 4.158 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brightsparks Day Nursery, Old Coulsdon is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.408

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

My husband and I wanted to say how happy we have been with the care of our daughter in the baby room. She has now moved into the next room and her entire experience in the baby room was excellent, from the settling in sessions to the transition into the next room. The care of the staff was excellent. We felt they really knew our daughter well and provided her with very good care. She was very happy in the room and I felt I was able to communicate with staff easily if I needed reassurance or had questions. The staff were very dedicated.

Brightsparks Old Coulsdon is outstanding in every possible aspect. As parents of a 14-month-old, we are very happy that our son has a chance to attend this nursery.
The staff are brilliant, caring and our son loved being there.
Sadly we are moving house and area and would love to take the nursery with us.
Slightly off the main road so having a car is useful, but worth every journey.
We would strongly recommend it to any parent around Coulsdon.

I have two children at Brightsparks, my daughter started in 2014, she truly excelled and flourished. My son started in August 2016 and has thoroughly enjoyed his time at the nursery. I am kept up to date with the nursery theme and weekly planning. There is good communication between staff and parents. The facilities available are very good with lots of choice. I leave both my children there knowing they are being well looked after. Both are keen to get through the door into their relevant room.

Our 9-month-old daughter started at Brightsparks Day Nursery, Old Coulsdon in September '16 and overall I couldn't be happier with the nursery. From the first day, I've felt confident leaving my daughter knowing she will be well looked after and will enjoy herself with the varied activities.

We are very happy with this care and support that our son receives in the nursery. His caregivers are fantastic- they are interested in him, his interactions, his family and are more than willing to adjust to meet his needs as best as they can. All the nursery staff are friendly, engaging, competent and welcoming to both children and parents alike.

My grandson has been at Brightsparks since 10 months old. He is very settled and happy at the nursery. When starting the nursery all staff were friendly and welcoming and were very knowledgeable. He is very happy and settled at the nursery and is always happy to go.
All staff know him by name and always have a lovely welcome in the mornings when dropping off.

We are very happy with Brightsparks.

My daughter has been at Brightsparks Day Nursery, Old Coulsdon since a tiny baby, she has formed special/good relationships with staff within each room she is in, all staff are approachable, caring, friendly and very supportive. She is more confident and enjoys going to nursery looking forward to it in the mornings and happily saying goodbye to me. The nursery itself is a fun, welcoming and a bright environment I love that photos and artwork are displayed around the rooms so parents can see their children enjoying themselves. I cannot fault the care Brightsparks Day Nursery, Old Coulsdon gives to my daughter. Whenever I go to pick her up she is beaming and giving staff hugs when she has to leave. :)

The manager and the staff at Brightsparks Old Coulsdon have been friendly and welcoming since my daughter started a year ago. The communication is good and the staff are always happy to help in any way they can. The settling in period was very effective and I feel confident and happy with the care provided. My daughter has made good progress over the last year, especially with her communication. She loves going to Nursery and it has been great for her. Thank you to all the staff.

My daughter has been at Brightsparks Old Coulsdon for over a year now and they have been amazing. When she first started she was very clingy and would cry every time I left but the staff were so good with her and within a few drop offs she was running in without a care. All of the staff are so caring and she loves seeing them all. Her development has come along really well, her speech is perfect and she can now recognise most letters and numbers and is attempting to write and spell her name (she will be 4 in September).
She is only leaving because she will be starting school, otherwise I would keep her there.
Would definitely recommend this nursery.

Both my daughters attend Brightsparks Old Coulsdon, and could't be happier. My youngest is just over a year old, and has been there since she was nine months old. When I drop her off, she plays with her friends and is always happy to see the staff - a very good indicator that they are caring, and loved by the children.

My eldest is four, and has been there since she was six months old. She can write her name, recognises numbers and some words; she is creative, intelligent, confident, caring and outgoing. Her outstanding development is a credit to Brightsparks and the staff at Old Coulsdon. They structure learning around current events and the interests of the children, and it's a delight to see. We've just collected her Early Years folder, which we will have to pass on to her primary school teacher in September. The care and attention put into the folder is incredible - observations, conversations, artwork, photos of activities mentioned. It is such a thorough record of her development and it's wonderful to read through.

The phrase "it takes a village to raise a child" comes to mind; everyone at Brightsparks Old Coulsdon has had an impact on the way my eldest has grown into a confident and intelligent young girl. It's been a pleasure to have her at Brightsparks, and I look forward to seeing all the milestones my youngest will make as she continues her journey with Brightsparks.

Thank you to all at Brightsparks for providing excellent care for my two girls!
