9.1 The Bridge Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.106)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for The Bridge Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Bridge Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.939 for The Bridge Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.939

  • 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 4.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Bridge Nursery 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.417

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

I'm so happy and proud of how much my little girl has progressed throughout the years. That's thanks to the love and care of all the staff at The Bridge Nursery. They always show love and care towards all of the children and are very approachable. My little girl has attended for almost three years and the staff are truly like her "aunties" she talks about them none stop and can't wait to get to nursery on a Monday morning. I would and already have recommended the nursery to friends and family.

I find the nursery's standards are very high. They are very caring towards my children. They have always eaten what is put in front of them and it's excellent value for money. They have always really enjoyed going and get very attached to the staff there. Their progress for learning has been fantastic and have come on lots since being in nursery.

Thank you for your positive review. We are so glad you are happy with our service.

This nursery is fantastic, my baby started very early at 4 months and has come on massively. He really loves it and his key workers. I get regular reports about how he's doing, a daily book to tell me what he's done and support if I need or my child does. I can't recommend it enough.

Thankyou for your review. We are so happy you are pleased with our service.

My son has just attended the holiday club at The Bridge Nursery and he had an absolutely wonderful time there. They had lots of different activities going for the children. I cannot praise the staff there enough, I would definitely recommend this service and will be using them again next half term.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for the last 8 months and thanks to the fantastic staff here she has settled into her "second home" extremely well. The staff are very attentive to the children and enthusiastic in their roles. I am very happy with the progress my daughter is making in her development and can't thank the staff enough for doing a great job!

Our son started at Bridge in January 2016 at 10 months old and from the very first day we picked him up to this day he never stops chattering in the car on the way home which for us speaks volumes. He clearly loves it and is very relaxed there. The aunties are great and always spend time in the evening letting us know how his day has been. The daily diaries he brings home is a big plus for us, it's really nice to know what he's been doing, when he's slept and what he's eaten etc. We are extremely happy with the care he receives, the learning support he gets and we would highly recommend the nursery.

My daughter has been attending here for over a year. The staff have all been fantastic and she has grown into a confident and curious child with lots of friends! She's kept busy with lots of varied activities and time outside. We're really happy with how settled she is and she loves being at nursery.

My 2 girls go to the nursery and really enjoy it. They do so many different activities throughout the day. All the staff are really friendly and very approachable. I also find them very accommodating. It was a big thing for me to put my girls in a nursery, and I am really fussy with what they eat, but after discussing this with the manager they accommodated my needs. Another thing I like is how much time the manager actually spends in the main body of the nursery with the children and is always there at hand for any questions you may have. It definitely made my return to work a lot easier knowing my children are in a welcoming environment and all the staff are nice to them and really make an effort. My girls have lots of fun and have come on loads.

The Bridge Nursery is exceptional!! The aunties are the most caring staff I have ever met. My youngest of 4 daughters attends the nursery, she loves going everyday (even asks at weekends!) She learns, plays and is cared for very well. I would recommend this nursery to any parent. The staff are very informative on our daughter's progress. I would give them 10 out of 10 on every level.
