The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Trafford Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 38 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Trafford Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 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 4.796 for Bright Horizons Trafford Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (368 Excellents x 5) + (81 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 455 Ratings = 4.796

  • 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 4.643 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Trafford Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 9 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.643

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

Amazing nursery with lovely staff. Unfortunately, we're moving from Manchester. Everyone was very supportive and lovely during this difficult period of time for every mother (5 months) of coming back to work. My boy loved the food, playing with the toys and dancing time. The manager and staff members always greet us with a smile.

Our son has been at Bright Horizons since July 2016, when he was 1 and he absolutely loves it. The staff are all so caring and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of childcare. Our son has formed close bonds with a lot of the staff, and it's a real "family" atmosphere. The food is fantastic and very varied and they really try and encourage independence in the children by letting the older ones serve themselves (with help when required). The facilities are great, with a big enclosed outdoor space that the children can run about and play in. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone, who wants their child to be looked after in a caring, but structured environment.

A wonderful nursery. Natural, fun and caring staff, great garden area, great facilities, easy parking or buggy parking for drop off. Reasonable value compared to others. Open 8-6 with full or half days available. 2 levels of room with kids moving up about 2.5 years old. Learning logs give lots of information and there are routine chances to see it or talk to staff. We chose it for two key reasons. It's a clean, modern facility that feels bright and airy and all in proportion rather than some of the nurseries in adapted houses. We found you either like one type or the other. The very best thing about the nursery though is its cultural diversity which really reflects the city we live in.

Our third child is now in his last year at this nursery, and we have used it continuously since 2009. All three have had a really brilliant time with staff who are more than capable. Turnover of key staff has been very low in the eight years - one lovely lady has cared for all three over this time and our two youngest have both had the same brilliant guy for their preschool years.

A deciding factor in choosing this nursery was that the building is 'purpose-built' with loads of natural light and outdoor space (crucially for an urban nursery, the outdoor space is shielded from the worst road traffic fumes and noise by the building itself). The kids have loads of access to the outdoor space and can run around to their heart's content.

I'd have to recommend it to anyone.

This nursery is wonderful. I feel extremely grateful that I decided to send my son here - I feel safe leaving him and feel that he has developed so much since starting in April. His original settling in period was difficult as he had only ever known myself and his dad - but the team at Bright Horizons were super supportive and helped me through the transition as much as him. He now loves coming to nursery, loves seeing his friends there and loves everyone who works in his room. He is a more confident child since attending. I also really like the way I can call or email at any time throughout the day and the nursery comes straight back to me. I also feel that the activities he does are really varied and that they are helping him to develop even further. They are a really friendly team and I feel confident trusting them with my most valuable thing in the world!

My youngest has attended Bright Horizons since she was one - she's now about to leave for primary school. We couldn't have been happier with the nursery! Lovely clean, bright, fun and an educational environment. Good food prepared on the premises (she's loved helping serve now that she's one of the Big Ones!). She has bonded well with each key worker and we feel she's been well-supported, has learnt a lot and made some good friends. Management is easy to talk to and very responsive to queries and suggestions. No concerns at all, would (and have!) recommended to others wholeheartedly. Thank you Bright Horizons Trafford, we'll really miss you when she goes to school!

I am always pleased to see the variety of activities on offer, I love the fact I can see what they have served to eat.
the fact they spend time in the great outdoor space is brilliant, as we only have a small garden and fresh air is so important.
The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The free book borrowing is brilliant too.

My daughter started this nursery when she was 4 months old has now left to go to school (she is going to be 5 in December). This nursery has been fantastic and the staff hard working. My daughter has turned from a 4-month-old who could just lift her head to a confident, polite and social child. She has all her basic skills for school and is currently doing really well in her learning to read. This is all due to the hard work of the staff and the fact they have worked with me and my daughter always. I would very highly recommend the nursery to other parents. This to the nursery that cares for everyone- thanks.

My daughter has settled in very well and has gained lots of development. She enjoys her time at the nursery and comes home and implements her learning. Since she has joined nursery she has matured and understands various things. Therefore I would most definitely recommend this nursery to other parents as I can see she has developed into her own.

I love Bright Horizons nursery, my son started in explorers and is now in the "big room" which he really enjoys.
I know that I can leave my child with the staff and know that he is being cared for and his development is growing.
When needed I can have a meeting with his key person who my son has a very strong bond with as he comes home and talks about her.
When I collect him he is always clean and his bag looks like he's had lots of fun.
Bright Horizons is a place for your child too.

I have has 2 children in this nursery and I like the service and care provided here. I kept my daughter here while I was on maternity leave as they have a wonderful range of activities and great outdoor space. We also suffer from obscure allergies/eczema triggers and the cook has been wonderfully accommodating about this and my daughter never missed out food wise. Now she's in school I really miss their services as she now has to have a packed lunch as the school can't cope with her requirements.

Both of my daughters go here. One of the children is in Explorers and the other is a Discoverer. I love the time and attention they give both girls especially the littlest one, who started there drinking milk and is now eating meals with the other children. She even was drinking from a cup which has all been done with the support of the staff there.
My eldest started in this room and has now moved into the 'big' room. The staff in this room have supported her with potty training and I love that there is a male assistant.

I feel confident my daughter is safe, eating healthy and supported, developed and genuinely cared for.
Wouldn't look anywhere else.

I have got a good experience at Bright Horizons, my daughter started the nursery and was taken very good care of. She was also potty trained before she started school, and now my son is here When he started he was almost a year old and couldn't walk, one evening I came to pick him up and he was walking.
My kids love it here at Bright Horizons and so do we, all the staff are very friendly and kind.

My son loves it at nursery, he is always talking about the staff and his friends there. There are always staff engaged with the children and activities going on, even at the end of the day. I like how his interests are explored and extended at the setting and I can see the progress he is making academically and socially. The food is of a high standard and my son enjoys it, the menu is varied and changes with the seasons.

Have used the nursery for around 2 years and found it to be a supportive, kind and a fun environment for the children and parents too.
The fact that the staff have stayed and stayed tells me that they are happy there too and that contributes to the happy atmosphere.

The staff are all incredibly friendly and caring. I totally trust them to look after my son in the best possible way. I feel he is safe and cared for. I am confident that if he was poorly or needed extra attention they would give it. The food is varied and nutritious. He is very happy at the nursery and I can see him developing every day. I am kept updated on what he is doing and receive a daily summary of his activities. I have no cause for complaint and I would absolutely recommend this nursery to others.

Bright Horizons, which is based in the Old Trafford area is a vibrant and friendly setting. My daughter enjoys attending. The staff are nurturing. The rooms are light and airy and I love the outside space, which is equipped with lots of development and age appropriate toys. As a parent I was attracted to the nursery because both staff and children represent the diverse community in which my daughter and I live in. They keep you posted at every stage of your child's development. Unlike most nurseries, they offer a parents evening every six months, there are also extra activities, such as stretch and grow which my daughter thoroughly enjoys. I would definitely recommend this nursery.

Overall the care given to my child has been fantastic, she is given lots of attention throughout the day by the team. Our daughter had developed enormously whilst at nursery through learning and playing. Overall all the team have been very friendly, helpful and full of advice. Putting my daughter in this nursery is the best decision we have made. I cant thank the team enough.

I was a emotional wreck when my child first started his journey at Bright Horizons. He was upset but it took him a good couple of months to settle him, eventually one day there were no tears, the staff in the room were brilliant, they reassured me on a daily basis that he was enjoying his time here, I had regular updates, and photographs, the girls in the room didn't mind when I was ringing during the day.
When he moved up into the big room with his friends, he was so excited and straight away made a really good bond with his key worker and other staff in the room, I would see him during the day enjoying himself, making lots of friends, doing lots of messy play activities, pre-school. When picking him up from nursery he would say to me 'its not time to go home yet'. I would get regular updates from the staff as to how he was getting on in the room, and they were there when I had a question that needed answering. the staff were friendly and I got on with them really well. My child enjoyed his time at nursery.

Your kind thoughts and comments are really appreciated. Returning to work or choosing the right nursery can sometimes be very emotional time and we are so happy that Bright Horizons could be part of your journey. I will share your lovely feedback with the team.

The staff in baby 2 are excellent. They engage really well with the children and look after them very well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to other parents.
