  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.958 for Braeside Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (69 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.958

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.717 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Braeside Day Nursery is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.217

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

Reviewer Connection to Braeside Day Nursery

This nursery is amazing in many ways, my little boy has been attending here since he was around 6 months old and he absolutely loves it, when we turn into the nurseries street he kicks his legs and smiles with excitement and he jumps into the staff's arms as soon as we walk in. It's so reassuring to know your child is happy and safe. The staff are so lovely and the management are fantastic, they have all been so supportive, helpful, patient and sensitive to all of our needs and problems. Our little boy has a heart condition and I can't thank them enough for everything they have done during our tough times! They provide healthy yummy nutritious food which is all included in the price, well worth the daily rate you pay here. Great value and peace of mind!! Couldn't ask for much more.

Having had two girls attended this nursery from the ages of 6 and 8 months, I cannot say enough of how pleased I have been. As a Mother who is self employed it was important for me to feel confident with where my daughters attended. They have both thrived throughout their time developing strong bonds with both staff and children. I would certainly recommend.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough. My eldest son has attended since the age of one and is now sadly leaving for school and my youngest son, now 1 has just started. The level of care they have both received has been exceptional. The love and compassion that every worker has for each and every child is clearly evident. The little touches such as the nativity and leaver's party really show that they care and want to make the nursery experience special for every child.
As a parent they have been extremely flexible and accommodating to both my children's needs and my work schedule and overall have made the difficult event of returning to work after maternity leave so much easier. I have been delighted by every aspect of care from this nursery and reassure every parent looking at Braeside for childcare that the staff excel at childcare, child development and safety and appeal to have a genuine passion for their job.

Putting my son in nursery was a hard thing for me and my partner to do, to trust strangers with your child. Braeside made this so easy, they were warm and welcoming and gave my son all the time he needed to settle in. Since then his development has come in leaps and bounds. He enjoys every day he is there and even asks to go at weekends, he always comes home having learnt new things and with lots of stories about the fun he has had. The nursery staff are so warm and welcoming and the rooms are very homely and cosy. They have helped support me and my partner with my son's potty training and are so easy to talk to. They make the transition to different rooms comfortable that my child was not upset at all. The staff seem to genuinely care and show enthusiasm and interest to all aspect of my child's life. I could not recommend them enough.

My older daughter went to Braeside so I didn't hesitate to contact them again, when I was looking to find a nursery for my youngest. The staff are always very attentive to each child's individual needs and take great care to ensure they progress to their own capability. My daughter goes most days now and I am always reassured she is in the best capable hands for starting school next year. I am always kept up to date with her progress and I know her day is going to be full of fun and learning. She always comes home happy and always looks forward to going back.
