Reviews

7.2 Brightlands Day Nursery has a Review Score of 7.2 (7.204)

The Review Score of 7.2 (maximum of 10) for Brightlands Day Nursery 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brightlands Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 8 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.704 for Brightlands Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (76 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.704

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brightlands Day Nursery is based on 8 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

  • 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 Brightlands Day Nursery

I moved my son to this nursery when he was 15 months old. He settled in really quickly and quickly formed good relationships with all staff in the baby unit. The environment in the baby unit was always really calm and relaxed. They spent time with the babies on a one to one basis, in smaller groups as well as all together. He is now in Toddlers and I am just as happy with the staff, activities and his progress. Highly recommended to all my friends and colleagues.

Thank you for your feedback.

Staff at this nursery are excellent. My child has been going there for two years. I have always felt like my child has been safe and well cared for. They also show appropriate levels of affection which makes the child feel special. Food is healthy and they have a beautiful garden. The staff take them on visits to the cinema and have treats at Christmas.

Both of my children have attended Brightlands Day Nursery and I have been delighted with the care they have received. Many of the staff have been there since my son started six years ago and the continuity is great. Staff are enthusiastic, caring and kind. children get plenty of time outdoors. My children have always been eager to go to nursery and I have been very happy with our decision to send them there.

Brightlands Day Nursery is a warm and nurturing environment in which my son has thrived.

He has experienced all four group stages, from "Babies" to "Preschool", and each group has provided the same high standard of childcare.

Brightlands has a wonderful outdoor area that they get out in every day. My son has a detailed learning journey record; I've had plenty of opportunities to formally look through it, as well as the time to chat with his key workers whenever I needed.

Brightlands provides food that is healthy, varied and, according to my son, delicious!

Activities are varied, interesting and fun; I could see from his progress that my son was exposed to a huge amount of learning through the day.

The staff at Brightlands are so kind and so competent that I found myself able to go to work with no anxiety around leaving my son; I knew he was happy, learning and, most importantly, very safe.

At all stages, my experience has been issue-free; I would highly recommend this nursery.

A great nursery that has looked after my 2 children over the last 5 years. Staff really get to know the children, and genuinely care for them. It feels like a close-knit environment with a great variety of activities and lots of time spent outdoors. My boys have been so happy here I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

I know my child is in safe hands. The staff are so compassionate towards the children. He grows in confidence and understanding everyday. I would recommend this nursery to any parent: those who work full-time or part-time, or home-makers who would like to help their young children socialise before school. Also very good value for money.
