Reviews

9 Bright Horizons Cambridge Science Park Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9 (8.957)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Cambridge Science Park Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Cambridge Science Park 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 4.583 for Bright Horizons Cambridge Science Park Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (110 Excellents x 5) + (65 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.374 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Cambridge Science Park 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 29.4 positive Reviews (147 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 29.4 Target = 0.374

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

My son could only speak my own country's language so I was worried that he would be able to enjoy and talk with other children.
However, his skill of English is surprisingly improving and he sings some English songs even at home.
He seems to enjoy the activities at nursery like drawing and singing.

Since the Manager came back there is a big difference in the nursery. My son's development is amazing. Every day he is learning new things. There is much more variety in toys and books and the team are doing their best to support the children's development. Thank you to the Manager for making this place different than it was. Thanks to you I was happy to bring my child every day.

We have loved sending our daughter here. She started when she was 9 months old and is just leaving now for school. She has always received excellent care from the kind and attentive staff and has lots of wonderful friends here. She loves the food and gets really lovely nutritious meals. We send our little boy here too now and he loves it too.

My husband and I have had a very positive experience at the nursery. We have built a relationship with the nursery which has provided my daughter a safe place for her to spend time, by developing and growing.
We appreciate the staff's hard work and effort to maintain a good place for our daughter to learn, gain confidence and develop new skills ready for reception.
My daughter has a special rapport with the staff, especially her keyworker.
We would like to say thank you to all staff members at Bright Horizons Cambridge.

A great preschool, it really helped my daughters development, both with early years knowledge and personal skills.
Staff have always been friendly, supportive and able to give feedback on her day.
There is lots of opportunity for outdoor play and food is of good quality.

Our first child is about to leave and our second child has just joined. They both love the environment and their teachers. We've been extremely happy with the care and attention both our children and we have received.
We couldn't be happier.

I am extremely happy with the care and attention my daughter receives from the nursery staff. They have been so helpful in supporting her speech and she has gained so much confidence from attending nursery. Her two key workers have been fantastic and she has really bonded well with both of them.

Both of my children attended this nursery from when they were 8 months old up to when they began school they were always very well cared for. My daughter has allergies and eczema and her needs were always met.

I always felt happy and comfortable leaving my daughter at Bright Horizons. The staff always engaged with her on arrival and made the handover smooth (despite tears sometimes). My daughter was always playing happily when I arrived to collect her and often talked about her days activities on the way home. Staff always gave me a detailed description of the day and my daughter's behaviour.

Just want to say a massive thank you to all of the nursery team from room level up to management for their fantastic work at the nursery. My child has been in the setting now for 2 years and the quality of the care and education they have received has been phenomenal. There is clear commitment from my childs key person and support/advice is given from all levels.
There has been a massive change to the nursery since management changed from August 2014 - well done to the manager and her team, their honest open approach has made me recommend the nursery to fellow colleagues at my workplace.

My son attended this nursery for just over 2 months and only left due to changes in my employment (which was a very difficult decision) due to him being so settled. Throughout this time I have been more than happy with all aspects of his care at the nursery. In particular the relationship he built with his key worker. It was tough returning to work and leaving my son, but my experience here gave me great confidence that he was in safe hands.

Fantastic service provided by all levels within this nursery provision. Lovely airy and very inviting setting that has recently invested in lots of new resources and equipment. Every aspect of the setting is of the highest standard, from observations from my daughter's key person, to the administrator when dealing with financial queries. Thank you to everyone involved, you are all truly amazing.
