Reviews

8.8 Bright Kids at Northfield has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.792)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Kids at Northfield 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Kids at Northfield in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.729 for Bright Kids at Northfield is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 4.063 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Kids at Northfield is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.313

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

Lovely staff. They take their time to know children on an individual basis. They have worked closely with my daughter to help her with her speech.

The staff are always willing to help the parents as well as the children.

This nursery has a great atmosphere, the staff are very friendly and really helpful. There is lots for the children to do and learn so much. My son enjoys going and found it very hard to talk to new people until he started here. My son has learnt so much and has come a very long way since he started and I would like to thank all the staff who have helped him and shown him all different things.

This is a great nursery. My daughter is 10 months old and has been attending for about 6 weeks now. She absolutely loves it there and the ladies that work there are brilliant. She has bonded really well with them and enjoys going to nursery. The food they provide the children is great and there is always a wide variety on offer. The nursery caters well for each child's individual routines. I would definitely recommend this nursery.

I'm really happy with the care provided. My son has a great relationship with two of the girls specifically, they have supported him with his additional needs and have helped him develop to an adequate level for his age. 100% this is a brilliant supportive friendly environment for children. The environment is changing and is constantly changing, keeping the children interested and challenged. Modern and natural toys.

I would highly recommend this nursery to everybody!

Lovely friendly nursery, the staff are all amazing and my daughters have come on in leaps and bounds there. Always lots of different and fun activities for the children to take part in. Regularly kept up to date with an online diary with how my daughters are getting on and what they have been doing at nursery each day, with lots of photos and videos.

I'm so pleased that I chose Bright Kids Northfield as my boys' nursery. The staff really helped the boys to settle in quickly and have always been very kind and caring. I've had no safeguarding issues whatsoever and they seem to have very rigorous policies in place and enforced such as no mobile phone use on site. Communication is very good with regular newsletters and they've also held parents' mornings which have been lovely and really enjoyable. The boys have really developed in their literacy and numeracy since being there and their confidence has also grown; it's clear that their key workers know them well. The online learning journal is great as you receive regular updates on their progress. Most importantly, the boys have really enjoyed their time there and will miss going once they start at school.

Bright Kids Northfield is a fantastic nursery, from staff to setting. My son loves nursery and has really come out of himself since starting in September, all his needs are met, including his "special" needs. He comes home every day singing and saying something new, which is lovely. Bright Kids staff are really committed to meeting the needs of each child. The children do so many different activities every day it's never boring for them, the garden is super with lots to do to keep the children active. I love logging into the Tapestry website to see what my son has been doing. The nursery itself is bright and welcoming with lots of space, the staff are friendly and helpful too. Overall I love this nursery and would never consider sending my child anywhere else. You're doing a super job Bright Kids, thank you!

From the moment I walked in I knew this was the right place for my daughter. Leaving my daughter for the first time was never going to be easy but the staff put me at ease.

The staff are incredible and my daughter loves her time at nursery. She is developing rapidly and I believe that's down to the help of the staff and integrating with other children.

I would definitely recommend our nursery.

All staff are lovely and since my boy and started he has grown into the brightest little boy and will miss everyone from the nursery and I will also have my daughter start in January 2017. The outside is great for learning and the children to explore. I would recommend the nursery to anyone, I am pleased with it on the whole.

I found Bright Kids Northfield to be very welcoming, all of the staff are friendly and approachable. My daughter started in January 2015 as a shy quiet little girl, she has just graduated as a very confident little lady. I cannot thank the staff at Bright Kids enough for their support and teaching ability to bring that confidence out in her. I am sad that my daughters journey here has come to an end, as she thoroughly enjoyed every moment she spent here.
We'll done Bright Kids. Thank you for making my daughters nursery journey a magical one.

The nursery staff are very friendly, welcoming, helpful. The nursery is very big, there are lots of activities to do, outside area is big and there are lots of things to play with. Snack and lunchtime is good and the choice of food is good. My son enjoys playtime and playing outside. Overall the staff are great, they have helped my boy to settle in really well and quickly. He enjoys coming here and has made friends already.
