Reviews

8.8 Bright Horizons Bunnybrookes Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.849)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Bunnybrookes Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Bunnybrookes 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 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 4.451 for Bright Horizons Bunnybrookes Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (83 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.451

  • 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 4.398 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Bunnybrookes 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 17.6 positive Reviews (88 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 17.6 Target = 0.398

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

I am overwhelmed by the standards met by the team looking after my girls. They go above and beyond on a daily basis. When I pick them up at the end of the day I genuinely feel they have been cared for and it makes going back to work all the more easy. Little things like putting French plaits in my eldest daughters hair or telling me they've tried several different ways to get my youngest to drink her milk makes me want to personally thank each and every one of the staff, keep up the good work you're doing an excellent job. :)

My little one has been in Bunnybrookes since 8 months of age, now he is four. I am very pleased with the care and attention he has received from the staff. I think it has been a positive influence in his development.

Our daughter started nursery in November and found it difficult to adjust and settle in. The staff have been wonderful her and so patient. They have given her endless cuddles and care until she found her feet and for the past 2 weeks. She has been so happy there. She is becoming much more confident and plays happily at nursery. The food is fantastic and she eats so well each day she's there. It's very convenient for my work but the main reason I would recommend it is for the care, patience and tenderness that has been shown to our daughter. Thank you so much.

A lovely friendly environment. My boy enjoys himself every time he's here. He seems to have lots of fun and like all the staff. The staff give off a very good impression and seem to care quite a lot about the wellbeing of my boy. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

It would be nice if the nursery could have an hourly rate for families who wish to have their child in the nursery on an hourly basis instead of half days or long days (morning/afternoon or whole day). Staff always accommodating and kind. Sure my child is happy and safe.

Fabulous care. One member of staff has been amazing with my daughter who struggled at first to settle. My daughter loves one member staff to bits and I feel happy to know how well looked after she is. I'm not sure what we will do if this member of staff ever leaves. Management of the nursery are great, we have no complaints at all.

Our son has been attending this nursery since Oct 2016. The staff made us feel welcome and made the transition very easy for us and our son. We get a daily update to tell us what our son has done during the day which we love to read. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. We have definitely made the right choice in choosing Bunnybrookes for our child to attend.

The staff at Bunnybrookes have been caring and attentive, and ensured that my children are well looked after. Both of my children are happy when I pick them up, and the older one reports a good day each time. In particular, the staff made the initial settling in process much easier than it could have been. The nursery has been understanding of my need for extra sessions periodically, due to work commitments, and have tried to accommodate these as far as possible.

I like the atmosphere at the nursery, the staff are very friendly and always approachable, we get good feedback at all times at the end of the day and the children are always cheerful. Its just sometimes the rooms look very crammed and a bit nerving to see different staff which can be confusing for the children.

My daughter has been attending the nursery since she could barely crawl and I have been very impressed by the care and professionalism shown by Bunnybrookes from the outset. Not only has she made some fantastic friends there, but attending the nursery has had a definite positive impact on her learning and development. Of course, it goes without saying, the safety of my child is my prime concern and I have always had the greatest confidence that she is cared for in a safe environment.
