  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Kids at Studley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.563 for Bright Kids at Studley is calculated as follows: ( (190 Excellents x 5) + (93 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 300 Ratings = 4.563

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Kids at Studley is based on 16 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target Reached = 1

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

9.6 Bright Kids at Studley has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.563)

The nursery has been great in settling my little boy, spending time with him to ensure he has made the transition to a new environment with relative ease. Staff have all been fantastic, really friendly and knowledgeable. It’s good to get an update on what my child has been doing when I pick him up; it’s given me the complete reassurance I need to know my child is happy and safe. I can’t thank those in Sunbeams enough for the care they have shown to my child in the short time he’s been there or for their patience with us when we’ve called to check he’s ok.

The only criticism would be fees and how they are calculated. I would have preferred to know staff training days are likely to be Fridays when I signed up as my child only attends 2 days a week (Friday being one) so we are out of pocket and having to also find other childcare when the nursery closes. April saw the nursery close for 2 consecutive weeks that we had to pay for - not a small sum of money.

We use the nursery and the breakfast club/after school club. The team at Brightkids Studley are lovely and my children both love attending here.
The nursery offers such a variety of things to do to keep the little ones busy and they have a great range of equipment/toys/books/etc.

A friendly, fantastic nursery which has helped build my son's confidence prior to him attending school. He learnt so much during his time at Bright Kids that he was fully equipped to start school. He now enjoys attending the holiday club.

My son loves coming to pre-school each day. He is always excited to share things with his teachers and tells me all about his friends. He feels safe and happy and he is learning a lot. He especially loved the recent Superhero Day! Thanks so much for all your hard work.

I could not be happier with the care that my son receives at Bright kids at Studley. He has flourished since he started attending in August and speaks about his friends and staff at nursery all of the time. Staff are friendly, caring, dedicated and professional. Their knowledge and passion shines through in the work that they do and they strive to encompass the children’s interests in the daily activities. I highly recommend Bright Kids of Studley.

Bright Kids is a fabulous nursery. The staff are amazing. They are caring, thoughtful, and clearly do their job because they love children. I have entrusted them with my son, and they have helped to develop him in ways I could not imagine. On top of that the friendly atmosphere and there adaptability is second to none.

My child is well settled in a nursery and he receives a good care.
My only concern is "nap time" is too short and a rest room is too small also not much separated from playroom, therefore noisy.
All food provided by nursery, however tea is not to good (cans food, long shelf life pancake etc.. ) also the size of the portion (my son was hungry very often and thirsty) or if the child does not like something no other options available.
I would expect far more better food service from the 5* caterer.

My son has recently started here, he was unsettled and very shy at first. With the support of staff for both of us, he is now happily settled in and really enjoys time spent at nursery. I as a parent feel very comfortable and secure in the knowledge that my son is being well looked after. Management have been very friendly and accommodating with an open door policy.

I have always had maximum confidence in the staff that have cared for both of my children. There is always a warm, caring ethos with staff engaging the children in a wide variety of activities. The outside space to play in is a real strength too. Staff are approachable, supportive and 'go that extra mile' with a listening ear and genuine concern that children are happy and safe. We are always greeted with a smile everyday and it easy to see that the staff enjoy building positive relationships with all the children and the families there. I would not choose any other child care provider.

Care is second to none - extremely pleased with my sons progress and welfare at the nursery. He is very settled at the nursery and seems a very happy little boy when he is there. All the carers seem to know him, his likes and dislikes and how to care best for him.

My daughter has attended on and off for years. And whilst I am VERY happy with the staff and the way they are with my daughter.
What I am unhappy with is the administration side of things. I regularly find mistakes with invoices, including dates booked and holidays. When these issues are raised I have to repeatedly chase until they are fixed, this sometimes takes months to rectify!
In the past it has led to me owing money and having to pay off in bulk because of miscalculations by previous managers. I have been told to pay it and it'll be credit on a future bill-which isn't ideal as a single parent to suddenly have to find hundreds of pounds extra! (And am wary of doing this because of how many months it can take to rectify a simple problem)
This has led to me having warning of my child being suspended because I refuse to pay until it's fixed.
Care wise I'm happy. Administrative wise it's appalling.

My children are very happy at this nursery. The staff are fantastic. The nursery is seeking to improve its outside space, which I believe could be better segregated according to ages of children and could be made safer for the youngest members of the nursery.
