Reviews

8.1 Bramley Wood Day Nursery has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.132)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Bramley Wood Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bramley Wood Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.801 for Bramley Wood Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (126 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.801

  • 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 3.331 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bramley Wood Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 24.8 positive Reviews (124 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 24.8 Target = 0.081

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

I've been really happy with Bramley Wood since my daughter who is now in the early pioneer's section.
Every day she's there, we get a full and detailed update and she has healthy and varied meals every day.
She's so happy to be there and the staff are all lovely.
She loves outdoor play and gets plenty of opportunities to play out in their garden.
I really didn't want to like this nursery when I was looking as it was slightly out of the way to work but I would never go back on our decision to send our daughter there.

The nursery itself is full of character, it's welcoming and has a fun and happy feel on entering. My son attends the preschool and has thrived due to the fun and educational activities including French and outdoor learning as well as the stimulating environment. The staff have been consistent and have proven to be professional, caring and supportive towards his individual needs. The fact that he thoroughly enjoys his time there is happy, confident and feels safe and secure is more than enough for me.

Absolutely brilliant nursery with outstanding facilities. Staff are friendly, caring, and clearly love their jobs. My son attends 2 days a week and has been going since age 1. He starts school properly in September '17 so has just started their Pre-School and loves it. The manager has been especially brilliant sorting out a couple of day swaps for me when my daughter's school was on half term and I had some juggling to do.

Special point - they recently had a visit from the local fire station and the children were able to go in the fire engine, put on the helmets, and even use the hose - I heard all about that non-stop for a week after! My daughter (now 6) also went from age 1-5 and loved every second (and is doing really well in school which is somewhat due to the brilliance of Bramleywood!). Brilliant nursery and I highly recommend it.

I have sent both my children to Bramley Wood and it's always a pleasure to drop them off, as they happily run into the nursery and it's great to see their smiling faces when you pick them up at the end of the day and hear about all their adventures. Excellent staff make leaving your child easy and they are pleasure to work along side to bring up your children.

Myself and my partner feel completely comfortable with our child's time spent at Bramley Wood. We couldn't ask for better surroundings or care. Our child has made friends within the nursery; both in the other children and the staff themselves.

My son started at Bramley Wood in January 2016 and we are thrilled with the progress he has made. He loves going to nursery and the staff have always been very friendly and helpful! My son has additional needs and the nursery have been fantastic in accommodating him and he has come along greatly since joining. I would highly recommend and my only regret is not finding this place sooner!

My son has been going to Bramley Wood Day Nursery since he was 7 1/2 months old.

Although over the years there has been a change is staff, and particularly in the group he would be in, it hasn't affected his learning or development. He is currently in the Preschool group, which is great, and all the staff are very good, approachable, friendly and he likes them all, he always comes home happy. I sometimes have a nightmare getting him out to go home!! In fact all the staff in all groups have been great.

The management team are also great, and whenever I have any questions relating to bills, or anything else, they always get back to me pretty much straight away.

I think the new Parent Portal is a good idea, I just keep forgetting to go on there to find out what is happening in the week!

I would recommend Bramley Wood to anybody, and compared to a couple of others I had previously looked at were a lot cheaper.

My personal observation is sometimes, to say “thank you” however it is just not enough!

On arrival, you greet us and welcome us with a smile. You listen to the special needs and requirements as per individual requests. You are considerate, understanding and always behave in a professional manner.

Day on day, hour on hour, you nurse our children, see to their needs, feed them, change them, educate them, discipline them and play with them, all the while keeping them safe until our return to pick them up.

Yes, you are employed to do so but no matter how much you earn, it is just not enough!

You look after our children with great care and passion, and any responsible and sane person would know that it is not a walk in the park, you seem to carry out your “job role” like water off a duck’s back.

You are all practically our extended family! So you see, saying “thank you” is certainly not enough. May God Bless you all for what you do; day in day out.

My baby started at Bramley Wood at 7 months and I was very nervous on his first day but the team where amazing and still are they even put up with all my emails! They keep me and my partner in the loop at all times and the parent portal is great for checking what he has been up to especially when my partner forgets what they have told him. My son really loves all his time at the nursery and I couldn't be happier with his care. His key carer is such a lovely person and it's great to know that he is being supported as he grows. Would highly recommend Bramley Wood.

Our son has been attending Bramley Wood Day Nursery for the last nine months. We have been very impressed with the effort staff put into helping him settle in, both at the start and when he moved up to the next room. He has developed a close bond with his key worker and the nursery had provided a supportive environment for him in which he is thriving both socially and in terms of his learning development. We are given really good feedback on how he has been each day and I feel confident to leave him at the nursery as he is very well cared for. I think he will be sad to leave to go to primary school.

A very happy nursery with professional and enthusiastic staff. Lots of messy play and educational games with French lessons and wonderful outside play areas. Children are very well looked after and love their nursery and carers. Food is lovely and varied, freshly cooked everyday with any dietary (or fussy) requirements taken into account.

My son went to Bramleywood for 2 years before starting school. He adored the nursery and made great friendships. The children are taught to socialise and develop their imaginations. They play dress up, read books, take part In assault courses, little movers, French lessons, cooking, singing, ICT and art work. My son came home happy every day. The nursery is open from 7.30am to 6pm and although my son was due to go all day during term time the staff were happy for me to pick him up early whenever I managed to get home earlier which was very convenient. My son was safe at nursery and staff were easy to talk to. The nursery went above and beyond by giving up their time to do carol services and graduation ceremony's in their own time. I would highly recommend this nursery.
