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 5 for Bright Horizons Guildford Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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:
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.
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.
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 3.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Guildford Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.083

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Karen H (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 20 February 2018. Relates to February 2018.
Our daughter has been at the nursery for two and a half years now and we are really happy with it. The manager and the team provide a fantastic service and are always welcoming and friendly. Our daughter has learnt so much by coming to Bright Horizons and loves all the activities, particularly the sports coach sessions.
The nursery provides fantastic value for money, with healthy, nutritious meals provided three times a day. The staff all really care about the children they look after and take the time daily to talk to you about how your child is progressing. I could not recommend this nursery more highly.
