  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brambley Hedge Private Day Nursery, Tarporley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 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 4.786 for Brambley Hedge Private Day Nursery, Tarporley is calculated as follows: ( (239 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 299 Ratings = 4.786

  • 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 Brambley Hedge Private Day Nursery, Tarporley is based on 18 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 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 6.2 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.

Our daughter has been at Brambley Hedge for around three months now and she absolutely loves it! The staff really helped her to settle in.
She's developed so much since starting nursery.
I can't wait for her to start talking so she can tell me how much she enjoys it!

2 wonderful daughters, one 2 and the other 1; both with Cows Milk Allergy and Reflux, one serious and the other laughing all the time. The nursery has been brilliant, dietary requirements have all been taken into consideration and medication but most of all, they are included and not excluded. As for the rest, my eldest can't wait to see her friends and most of the time I have difficulty just having a kiss and a cuddle; my youngest settled in well no tears and is loving her care workers too!
Both my daughters have fun, either making cakes or painting and making paper dolls but yes playing outside in the water and mud, canoes and let's pretend trains always entertain.
The staff are friendly, helpful and above all, they care for my girls as if they were part of the family so for me Bramley Hedge and all the lovely ladies are in my girls "life books".
Thank you for giving them confidence, security and above all fun to give them a great base to start their life from.
Thank you.

This nursery has just an incredibly welcoming and warm feeling to it. All the staff are extremely helpful and go above and beyond to help you and your little ones.
As a parent I look forward to key calendar dates as the nursery create little keepsakes which are so special to me and love seeing what my little lady has done in her day at nursery.

Brambley Hedge is a very good nursery. Staff are all friendly and our daughters like them. Good facilities, our daughters are learning and enjoying doing all of the activities that are on offer. Our only issue is that we have to pay for Bank Holidays and no other free days are offered to compensate. We feel it’s unfair to pay the full amount for planned holidays when we give the nursery plenty of notice.

All the staff at Brambley Hedge are so friendly, welcoming and approachable. My child thoroughly enjoys nursery and feels at home when he's there. I feel listened to in regards to my child and the communication between parent and nursery is very good.

I also believe that nursery takes part in lots of events and incorporates the children, for example, World Book Day, Children in Need, special celebrations etc and this is fantastic for the children's learning. Thank you.

My son has been going to pre-school at Bramley Hedge for over a year and he absolutely loves it there. The staff are lovely, and the outdoor space is amazing. My son really enjoys forest school and all the other activities they get up to!

Having had a very bad experience with another childcare provider we were anxious about how our son would settle in at a new setting. We need not have worried. All staff have been absolutely amazing from day one, he was made to feel so welcome and included and part of the Brambly Hedge family.

He has been encouraged in all aspects of his development by his key worker and we have seen such an improvement in his confidence. We are seeing our son thrive in a caring, safe and fun environment and words cannot describe how happy and grateful we are for that.

My little boy absolutely loves going to nursery. He was always very clingy to his mummy but this has become much less so since going to Brambley Hedge. The outdoor space is fantastic, and it is the default to be outside! Highly recommended!

Our daughter attended another much larger nursery for about 15 hours a week and hated it. It was quite a drive for us and every time, I left her it was with a heavy heart. As a last resort, we thought we'd pop along to Brambley Hedge, thinking they couldn't do much for us. How wrong we were. Our daughter loves it and now we wish we had sent our son, her older brother, there too.

Our daughter really enjoys nursery and has come on so much since starting at just over 1-year-old. They have a good balance between learning new things but also having fun and the care and attention a child of her age needs. We really like how much outside space there is and our daughter really loves to go out and explore.

I have nothing but praise for Brambley Hedge and can't recommend highly enough.
I go to work every day with the confidence that my little boy is in the very safest hands.
The environment is fantastic and the outdoor space is particularly good.
All of the staff are excellent and their care and attention to my little boy is second to none.
He loves it there!

My son has been attending Brambley Hedge since he was 10 months old. He is now 4. He absolutely loves coming to nursery and learns something new every time he attends. The setting has a real family atmosphere and the outside space is fantastic. He will be sorry to leave when he goes to school in a few months time.

A truly fantastic nursery. My daughter has been coming here 2.5 days a week since March and has come on leaps and bounds both socially and in her speech. The food offered is home cooked daily with fresh, organic produce which is high on my priorities. My daughter loves coming here and has made lots of friends and has special relationships with the staff. I can't recommend Brambley Hedge high enough.

Both my children have attended Brambley Hedge for more than 4 years in total. The standard of childcare and the facilities are fabulous! The outdoor space is stimulating and beautiful, and there is a continual investment in toys and learning tools. In particular, we must mention the pre-school supervisor - she is a wonderful ambassador for the childcare profession, caring, conscientious, diligent, creative and proactive in challenging the children through fun and games, but instilling discipline and respect (and love!) too.
The food is amazing, the cook uses organic home grown produce (her blog has fantastic photos) and the children help with preparing and cooking the food which they love doing! A wonderful childcare facility - we have been so lucky to have been able to send our children here.
