The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Bramingham 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Bramingham Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 11 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 4.717 for Bright Horizons Bramingham Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (177 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.717

  • 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 4.382 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Bramingham Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 11 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 28.8 positive Reviews (144 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 28.8 Target = 0.382

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

The staff are amazing and have helped my son settle in really well. He has learnt so much in the six months he has been there. Communication levels are very good from office to key staff in the different rooms.

Both children and staff are like one big happy family. I wouldn't want my son going anywhere else and look forward to his continued development and his masterpieces created.

My son joined nursery at 9 months. He will be 4 in December. I am so pleased with how happy he is with staff from the office to the kitchen, to his room.

They always also include his older brother in discussions and I never had any concerns with his progress or his group. Staff are open and approachable and I have a lot of confidence in them.

My daughter has developed so much since she started going to the nursery a few months ago. She has grown in confidence which is evident when she is at home and when she is dropped off at nursery and she runs off to find the staff without a second glance back. She is always content when my husband or I collect her and we often sneak in and peek through the windows to watch her playing happily!

The staff are all very friendly, knowledgeable and trustworthy. We honestly don’t worry about our daughter when she is there as we know she is being looked after very well.

Our little boy took a while to settle into the nursery. He's not the most confident of children but we are extremely impressed at how much effort the girls have put in to help him. He's made huge advances because of the nursery in his social skills and we are so pleased to see him now coming out of his shell and being his cheeky self. Never once have we felt uneasy about leaving him. Super friendly, accommodating, happy people. Couldn't recommend them enough.

My daughter came to Bright Horizons last year for holiday club which was recommended by another parent who uses their breakfast and after school. My daughter loves it so much as they do a lot of activities. She loves it and I loved it because as a parent you want your child to be happy. Used the holiday club again and will keep using it until she's in high school.

My daughter started at Bright Horizons Bramingham Day Nursery and Preschool having been with a childminder from 9 months. I was worried that she would struggle transitioning to a bigger setting. I needn't have worried at all. She was assigned a key worker who was amazing at helping to settle her into her new surroundings. My daughter has close relationships with the staff in her room and she has easily developed many friendships. She is happy which means I am happy! It's an amazing preschool which I would highly recommend!

Staff in both the baby room and Toddler 1 are so friendly and helpful. My daughter struggled with the transition to Toddler 1 but staff were patient with her (and me) but now she waves me goodbye and has a great time. My daughter loves going to nursery and I am so glad I chose Bramingham.

Such a wonderful nursery! My daughter attended for nearly 3 years and they have been the happiest of 3 years. The staff are all lovely and really care and they are led by a fantastic management team. The holiday club for school age children is also fantastic. I'm very sad my daughter has left to start school. I really do highly recommend this nursery.

Absolutely amazing nursery. We were so happy with the care, nursing and experienced offered. The staff are fantastic - they get to know your children really well and as such provide a learning experience catered for their needs and interests. Our children absolutely blossomed during their time at this nursery and both were sad to leave (as were we). We cannot thank the staff enough for all their hard work and providing the best possible start for our children.

Really happy with the staff in my daughter's room. Toddler 2 have made her feel so welcome which has made it easy dropping her off in the mornings. She settled so quickly and again, this has just happened with her moving to pre-school next week. Can't fault any of the staff, they've been fab. Would love to see better gardens facilities as there once was a slide fitted into the ground which the kids loved. More child-friendly menu, as the food isn't that great and a lot of kids don't eat what is offered at the moment.

We are very pleased that we put our child into Bright Horizons nursery based in Luton. He has been happy there since his first day, over two years ago. We feel that the nursery provides a very high standard of care and education. I am happy that they are flexible when I want to add extra house at short notice. Our son's progress has been aided by the facilities and activities. Varied menu provided by the nursery gives our child great nutritious meals throughout the week. The communication between staff and parents is excellent. I feel confident that I can discuss any problems if they arise.

My eldest daughter has been in the nursery since she was 9 months and now 4 years old ready for school. She has flourished and grown in confidence, nursery has become a big part of her life. I have had a very good experience sending my child to nursery hence I have put my 2nd child in too. I have noticed a difference in development in all aspects of their life in comparison to other children same age who do not attend nursery. The staff at this nursery are brilliant and I would recommend to other parents.
