The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Banstead Day Nursery and Preschool 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 89 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Banstead Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.802 for Bright Horizons Banstead Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (869 Excellents x 5) + (185 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 1067 Ratings = 4.802

  • 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 4.485 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Banstead Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 13 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 26.8 positive Reviews (134 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 26.8 Target = 0.485

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

Wishing Willow is an exemplary nursery and I am proud that my son is a part of it. The staff here show genuine love and care, have an immense amount of patience and are very mindful of every child's individual needs. I have witnessed my son go through various stages of development and what's truly commendable is the sheer attention to detail shown by the staff in Lily Room. I have and will happily continue to recommend Wishing Willow as it truly is the best nursery with the most talented staff in the area.

My son started here in April 2017 and this was his first time being away from me. Even though he is such a shy lad, he settled in very quickly. The staff have been so kind and gentle with him. In a matter of weeks, he moved on from crying, to eagerly getting ready on his nursery days. I love the fact that the staff are so attentive and supporting of his development. I am very happy with my experience here and would gladly recommend Wishing Willow to any parent.

The nursery is superb! My child enjoys going to the nursery very much. he bonded with the staff very easily and there has never been any fussing or crying when dropping him at the nursery in the mornings. When I come to pick him up he's always happy playing with the other children or the staff. All the staff are very friendly, know my child by name and clearly, everyone at the nursery cares very much about all kids. My child's key person is the loveliest, most caring person ever that clearly has a great relationship with my child, as is evident by all the cuddles they share.

My step-daughter has been attending Wishing Willows for 3 years! She always comes home happy with lots of stories about her day to tell me!!
She always eats loads at nursery and she's not usually a good eater so this was great fun for us! We drop her off in the morning with absolutely no worries! I would highly recommend.

Lovely nursery! Very helpful staff, always ready to help with queries. All the staff in Lily, Lavender and preschool have been so wonderful in caring for our son during this time period. They've helped us with toilet training which was amazing. Our son has grown in confidence and shown new skills over this time and indeed over the last two years!

Wishing Willows is a fantastic nursery which I would recommend to all parents. I have two children at Wishing Willows and I know when I leave them they are cared for and loved by the staff. From the moment my children started at the nursery I have always felt happy that they are in a place where they are getting amazing care, loads of stimulation and lots and lots of love and attention. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and the care my children get.

Our son joined Wishing Willow in April 2016 and has settled in so well. We put this down to the incredibly friendly and approachable staff, who have made our son's transition to this nursery so easy and stressfree - for both him and us. We can't thank the staff enough for creating such a great atmosphere and environment for our son each day he attends.

I would recommend to friends and family without hesitation and am planning on signing up baby number 2 as soon as they're born to secure their place next year.
Thank you to a wonderful team.

We really appreciate that you have taken time out to share your feedback, your opinion is very important to us. I am going to share your comments with the Nursery Manager and ask her to speak to you. We especially take any concerns regarding safeguarding very seriously.

I can't recommend the nursery enough. All the staff are very friendly and the care and support my daughter receives is brilliant.
I have noticed a vast improvement in her skills and abilities since she joined the nursery, and she has improved even more during her time in pre-school. She does need encouragement when I drop her off in the morning, and her key worker is always there to help her feel more comfortable.

My daughter has enjoyed her time at Wishing Willows. I am very pleased that they have recently moved to a bigger room as I do think the previous preschool room was a bit small for the number of children. I do sometimes find the meals are a bit unusual while it is good for her to try new things I think that occasionally the combinations are even a little too adventurous for adults.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the nursery and we will share your warm words to the nursery team.

Both my sons has attended Wishing Willows from 9 months old through to pre-school. My eldest son has additional needs and is thriving at school. A large part of this is the support, love and care he received whilst at nursery. Wishing Willow is like an extension of our family and I couldn't ask for a better environment for my children.

My daughter has always been happy and settled during her days at nursery - on the occasions she has been upset, the staff were really good in calming her down and distracting her from the situation. Always enjoyed the various activities she participates in particularly learning French. Loves playing in the garden/sensory room and messy play. Overall very happy.

We could not be happier with the nursery. The care our daughter receives is brilliant and the staff are very kind and professional.

My son has settled so quickly, he loves nursery. His confidence has grown so quickly so he now talks much more confidently and plays with other children. He wasn't doing either prior to starting just 2 months ago.
