  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.979 for Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery, Newton Heath is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.979

  • 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 4.741 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery, Newton Heath is based on 8 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 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.741

Reviewer Connection to Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery, Newton Heath

  • Mother of Child
    8

Our daughter transitioned here from another Brighter Beginnings nursery. They made sure her settling in process was smooth and child centred.
She has been at Brighter Beginnings since she was 9 months old and still loves it 3 years on.
The bond she creates with her key workers is amazing. She loves them all deeply and that makes us having to leave her there a smooth process.
The nursery offer a clean lovely nurturing environment. They supported us through getting her to sleep in the day without me being there (breastfeeding), supported us with our baby led weaning, potty training and now with her preparation for big school next year.
The online learning log and parents evenings allow us to get an idea of her development in their setting.
The food is lovely and caters well for our vegetarian diet. She gets plenty of sessions of physical activity, IT sessions, singing, art and craft and independent learning. I would recommend Brighter Begininings to all.

I would highly recommend this nursery to all my friends. It is nice and tidy, there are lots of activities for my baby. She is very happy, and from the front door of the nursery, she runs to her group. The staff is very friendly and is responsible.

The staff at this nursery are very helpful and make me feel comfortable leaving my son with them on a daily basis. My son moved from another nursery and they made the transition easy and worked hard to help my son settle in. I find the staff at the nursery polite and they're all approachable by both the parents and the children.

My son started at this nursery when he was 6 months old and is starting his transition into school this September. The settling in process was done at my son's speed and he formed a great attachment to his key worker. The nursery regularly goes on days out/trips to the park. So much exploring and learning through play. My son will come home and tell me how much he's enjoyed his day. I enjoy the open days/mornings they do, such as mother's day breakfast and stay and play. I feel my son is more than ready for school and has learnt a lot to give him a head start in big school! Thank you to the brilliant team!

My child has been at this nursery since 9 months old. I cannot recommend it anymore. Not only had my child come on leaps and bounds but my child has learnt the utmost respect and politeness and I believe this is down to the nursery. The manager of the nursery has always gone above and beyond not only to meet my child's needs but my family's. I have never had any worries since my child is in their care, from the key worker in the baby room, to the key worker in the preschool room. I have no bad words to say about the nursery and all the staff. I would recommend this nursery to anybody I know as I believe they could not do better for the children they care for.

My daughter started at Brighter Beginnings Newton Heath when she was 5 months old meaning she needed some one to one time for feeding etc, the staff were more than happy to accommodate this, meaning that my daughter now has secure attachments with staff. There is lots to do for the children including a range of activities, stay and play sessions and trips into the local community and beyond. The online learning journey is a great touch and helps me stay up to date on her learning and development. Thank you all for making my transition back in to work an easy one.

My little boy started nursery at 6 months and the staff made me feel at ease from day 1. From the personal touch of the home visit, to tailored settling sessions to suit his routine. He settled really well and has a great bond with all the staff in his room, especially his key worker. I can't thank the staff and the manager enough for making this transition a pleasure. I would also like to add how much I enjoy seeing his online learning journey. Just a quick click online and I have the pleasure of viewing what my little boy has been doing throughout the day, which helps me to relax and not feel guilty leaving him as I can see he's having lots of fun. I would 100% recommend this nursery to everyone.

My son attends Brighter Beginnings Newton Heath, the manager and her staff team are amazing and I couldn't be happier with my son's progress. I feel that his transition to school will be a lot smoother because he has attended this setting.
