Reviews

9.3 Bright Horizons Gaynes Park Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.262)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Gaynes Park Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Gaynes Park Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 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 4.706 for Bright Horizons Gaynes Park Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 102 Ratings = 4.706

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Gaynes Park Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 7 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 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.556

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

My son has attended this nursery since he was 4months old. I have watched him grown into a confident, caring, intelligent and enthusiastic little boy as a result of this nursery.
He enjoys attending Gaynes Park and adores his friends and carers. The staff are attentive, compassionate and caring, they ensure the needs of each individual child is prioritised.
The garden is spacious and the overall space and facilities of the nursery are second to none.

My 3-year-old son has been attending the nursery for 2 and a half years. He is always happy when I tell him it's a nursery day! I'm always hearing stories about what he's learnt and what friends he's played with. I'm really happy with the nursery, the staff are friendly and are always welcoming. I would highly recommend this nursery!

My daughter was very reserved to begin with and the staff at Gaynes were brilliant with her, they reassured and settled her in lovely.
Could not ask for a better bunch of nursery assistants. (All staff)
I am very pleased with all their work, including the communication whilst I am at work.
I am gutted my daughter will be leaving such a fab place.
I just want to thank all the staff members for their undivided attention towards the children.
I would highly recommend this nursery to all mothers and fathers.

The staff in the baby room have been extremely caring to my little boy. He was very happy there for the time he spent with them, this was obvious. I found the baby room light, relaxing and the girls made the time fun and encouraging for him. He developed and grew during his time in thew baby room and the girls were supportive and loving towards him. That was all we could ask for as parents. Thank you so much!

My daughter originally attended Gaynes Park 2 years ago and my wife and I were extremely happy with the set up then. My son then started with the nursery in November '16 and since he has joined there he has become less clingy to us in the morning when dropping him off, and looks excited to be going when we tell him it's pre-school today! He comes home singing the songs he has been singing in the class and tells us of the games he has been playing. All of the staff at the nursery are extremely helpful and go the extra mile. I would highly recommend this nursery to others.

Son has been attending Gaynes Park Day Nursery since he was 10 months old and is now 3 yrs old and at the preschool. Nursery is well run., the staff are very polite and friendly and our son feels comfortable and familiar here. The rooms are large with plenty of space for designated areas, there are a large variety of toys and activities. The meals are well prepared and all home-cooked/fresh on-site which is wonderful. Kitchen is spotless. Staff are always open to communication via email/phone and always let you call if parents have any worries about their child. Lovely nursery/preschool overall.

My child has attended for the past 3 years and I couldn't be happier. The staff are all lovely, it's very clean and everyone is very kind. If I need extra days the staff help promptly and its all run very smoothly. My child has come on so far and I would definitely recommend.

I have used Gaynes Park over the past five years for both of my sons, moving through all four age-segregated rooms, and have returned to them this month after a short break. As usual the staff have been welcoming and caring towards the whole family, sharing information at the end of each day about your child's activities, interests and behaviour. Both sons have flourished there: developing their social skills, having fun in the garden and learning without realising it in the rooms. No 2 son rarely comes home without something to show that he has made, from biscuits to 'art' and is clearly happy and stimulated. I recommend.
