Reviews

8 Fremington’s Bright Stars has a Review Score of 8 (7.964)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Fremington’s Bright Stars is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fremington’s Bright Stars in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 1 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 4.714 for Fremington’s Bright Stars is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.714

  • 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 3.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fremington’s Bright Stars is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 0.250

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

An amazing nursery my daughter started in November, she is 14 months and only goes two days a week. She is walking, talking and can say 9 words. She is so happy and content. The staff are amazing they love her and she clearly loves them as she can't wait to go and play. We feel she's done so well being advanced which is all thanks to the time, care, effort and most importantly love given by staff. An excellent nursery and one very happy mummy, daddy and most important baby.

Fremington’s Bright Stars - The breakfast club is used by our 10yr old son. Excellent care, attention and patience! They understand when my son is concerned or worried and helps to calm him down. Looks after the older children (breakfast/after school clubs) occupied, ample activities. Excellent staff.

Fremlington's Bright Stars Nursery has only gotten better and better each year. The staff are enthusiastic and enjoy their jobs. The staff are very friendly to both the children and parents, and I would consider I have made some good friends during my boys time at nursery.
My child loves attending nursery, and is even excited to go when his older sibling has school holiday. He comes home, and says or does something and I will ask "where did you learn that?", "Nursery" is his reply.
He has a good foundation for reception in September.

I was unsure about how to pick childcare for my son (first child) but Fremington's Bright Stars was well regarded by several people I spoke to. After my first visit I was convinced as the place has a very warm and friendly feel. I believe they balance education and development with care and emotional support perfectly. My son did not want to go to nursery at 11 months but soon warmed to the staff despite early protests. I genuinely believe that they care for him and that means a lot. He has now been going for 6 months and loves it!
