Reviews

9.8 The Brampton Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.827)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for The Brampton Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Brampton Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 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 4.889 for The Brampton Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (128 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.889

  • 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 4.938 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Brampton Day Nursery is based on 9 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.938

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

I have 2 children here. I absolutely love this nursery. The staff are outstanding and it feels very reassuring leaving my children with them to go to work, knowing they will have a great day, in an outstanding environment with access to a beautiful garden, excellent toys and educational opportunities to explore, learn and develop. I would recommend the Wigwam Nurseries in a heartbeat.

My daughter has been attending The Brampton Day Nursery since 2014, just after the current owners took over and the building was renovated. She has grown up as part of the nursery and been through all of the aged rooms. My son now also attends the nursery and has been there for 1 year. Both children are extremely happy there and as a parent, I am confident that they are in the best hands possible. The staff are extremely attentive and willing to listen to ours/children's needs. They have done an excellent job at both entertaining and teaching the children, provided a stimulating, fun and educating experience. I am impressed with their outdoors ethos, provision of structured play and excellent facilities. I completely recommend this nursery.

My son is so happy here. It's such a wonderful nursery. He is greeted by name by all the staff who see him each morning. He enjoys the routine of nursery life and is always happy to tell me about his day. He teaches me songs and games he plays with his friends.

My twin girls love going to nursery. The nursery staff are all very kind and caring without exception. The nursery is very clean and well run and there are always lots of exciting activities and fun toys to play and learn with. The outside space is phenomenal and the girls really enjoy getting stuck in with the Forest School in all weathers. They both really enjoy their food at nursery and have a rounded and healthy diet throughout the day. The leadership and management team at the nursery and also in the under 2s room is outstanding. This nursery is undoubtedly providing my girls with the best possible start in life and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

It was fantastic to see all the preschool children taking part in a small play whilst parents watched. My daughter really enjoyed this and the nursery staff had worked very hard with the children.
The enthusiasm and interest shown by the staff is excellent.
The preschool children are a small, cohesive, happy band of children.

They're fantastic! My son has been there since Sept 2015 and since he has settled in (only took a few months) he's absolutely loved it! All the ladies are brilliant, very caring and teach him so much. It takes my son a few minutes to settle in the each morning but is always so comfortable going off with any of the ladies, even if he's upset. The menu is great, nice healthy meals which my son constantly has seconds of! The ladies are always happy to ease my concerns if I call up when he's not been feeling great. Always very helpful to me and I highly recommend them. Amazing garden too. My son adores being outside, love that they are an "all weather" nursery, rain doesn't stop them!

My son has attended the nursery since he was 6 months and I have found the nursery to be outstanding. The baby room is managed by a mature and highly experienced room leader, who ensures that they are cared for thoroughly, either sticking with a routine that you want or helping you get them into one. They help fully with the transition from milk to food. The children are taken out daily for walks and the garden area is complete with Forrest school, huge sand pit and mud kitchen. A wide range of activities are available inside also with regular parents evenings. The management are very hands on and approachable. My son has now moved to 2-3s room which offers multiple activities which are always imaginative and creative, the staff are amazing and give you excellent feedback on a daily basis.

Overall excellent nursery - The warmth and experience of the staff make the place. The only negative comment I have is that there shouldn't be an extra charge for dropping off before 0800.

I cannot recommend Brampton Day Nursery highly enough. Our girls love attending and have really developed their emotional, social and practical skills (for example, feeding themselves, learning new words, singing etc). The staff, without exception, are kind, caring, highly professional and extremely well qualified.
The girls enjoy a great variety of stimulating activities and we are kept updated on what they've been up to in the week with a lovely newsletter - we look forward to reading it every Friday.
The girl's key workers have formed really special relationships with our daughters who adore them. They have put a huge effort into getting to know them as individuals. Our girls are always smiling and happy at both drop off and collection - as a parent you can't ask for more.

The Brampton Day Nursery was my first choice in the Huntingdonshire area. The welcoming atmosphere and clean and safe interior set The Brampton Day Nursery head and shoulders above the local competition.

We are very pleased with this professionally run nursery. Our child is always welcomed by name when they arrive each morning. The outdoor space is interesting and has various zones to provide a range of outdoor play activities. The food is good, which goes down well with our little boy after rushing around outside. The tone of the staff handover at the end of each day is always positive. The children are gently guided towards behaving well and therefore the atmosphere is welcoming and safe. The turnover of staff has been a concern of ours in the past. But the staff have always been excellent. Also, this seems to have settled down in recent months and the nursery has got better in communicating staff changes. The owners have clearly invested in the facilities in the last few years and the children have gained more space to play indoors due to this. We chose this nursery for the 'Forest school' approach and we are very happy with the caring and personal service they provide.

David Wiggam, Director at The Brampton Day Nursery responded to this review on 11 Oct 2016:

Thank you for your honest comments. Establishing the right staff team to offer the child-led approach to learning and development we aim to provide has meant that there have been more staff changes than we would have wished for. Happily, we now have the correct people in place, which is evident from the stability the staff team now enjoys.

This nursery is brilliant for my son - he absolutely loves his time there and they have a wonderful ethos and facilities. I particularly like their approach to discipline with talking through difficult emotions and sensory supervised timeouts to help the kids chill out and understand their own behaviour. The amount of time they get to spend outside is also great.
