The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Summerfields 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 43 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 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 4.773 for Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (406 Excellents x 5) + (103 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 516 Ratings = 4.773

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 12 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.750

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

Our two daughters have been with Bright Horizons Summerfields since they started nursery. Our eldest is now at school but we were happy with the care and learning she experienced while at the nursery. There is a real family feel to the nursery and the staff which we really like. The nursery staff have also been excellent in helping with managing our youngest's behaviour (including coordinating a plan for at home and nursery) what can I say; We think they are doing a great job!

My little boy loves his time at Summerfields Day Nursery, recently he went with his friends to the library. Travelling on public transport and having an afternoon of stories really sparked his imagination and now is picking up more book at home.

We have been extremely pleased with the nursery as a whole and feel very confident with the choice we have made for our child, one of our most precious assets. The management goes above and beyond consistently to ensure we - as parents - and our child's needs are always met. The staff are extremely caring and perceptive and pick up on lots of details in our child's day to day life whilst at nursery and provide us with anecdotes from his day. We feel extremely confident and comfortable dropping him off, knowing he is in the best place possible, in our eyes. We would wholeheartedly recommend the nursery to any prospective parents.

Our daughter has been at the Summerfields nursery for 5 months and she and I have been made to feel very welcome. The staff are very friendly and seem more than capable and are finding activities to help our daughter develop further. A couple of highlights for me were the Christmas Nativity and party that followed; and the recent trip to the library.

I cannot praise this nursery enough. It is just fantastic. My 4-year-old is in preschool and my baby is in the under 2's room. The staff are very professional and caring. I used to use the nursery as it was a convenient location but now I have moved, I drive many miles to bring them here. Most of the staff have been there for years and from what I can see the new starters have been full of enthusiasm and are well trained.
Everyone seems happy in their jobs and happy staff brings happy children. The management are amazing. No problem too big or small- they will go out of their way to help you. They even consider the busy parents and have drinks and snacks for them to grab on they way out to work.

The key workers for my children are so approachable and my girls just love them. There is an excellent range of activities and learning spaces. The chef caters for my picky eater, and one staff member in rising threes is an absolute star. Highly recommend this nursery.

Having has one child recently leave the nursery and another in pre-school, I have had very positive experiences of Summerfields. The children love the staff and enjoy attending. The introduction of some external activities has enhanced the nursery for my reception age child to return to nursery in school holidays and based on her excitement, she still loves the nursery even after experiencing a school setting. The managers are professional and knowledgeable and the staff has a great mix of established employees and new staff.

We moved to Wilmslow and my son struggled to settle into two other (OFSTED outstanding) nurseries before we found Bright Horizons Summerfields. My older son is quiet and struggled in other nurseries where there were large open spaces and noisy environments. In Summerfield's, he has been given such individual care and support. No allergy, injury or individual requirement has fazed them. The staff are wonderful, totally dedicated and very well trained.
I have two children that attend the nursery. One in the under twos room and one in the under threes room. I have found all members of staff to be so caring, helpful and friendly and they have such genuine interest in the children they look after. The management is wonderful and incredibly supportive. I couldn't have found a better nursery.

My little boy recently started the nursery and I have always found the staff friendly and approachable. I was really impressed with the standard of care and attention to detail during the settling in sessions. I particularly like the home-nursery stickers which enables me to have an input into our son's learning.

The manager is extremely helpful and knwoledgable, especially whilst dealing with weaning!
A great nursery with an even better ethos, my son loves it here and I would definitely recommend it to any other parents.

Summerfields Nursery has been fantastic with my little boy in under 2's. They helped him to settle and met all his care needs. He was very happy to go to his key person and had lots of smiles when we left him as he felt comfortable in his new environment, which really helped us to go to work.

The meals that he has had have been very nutritious and to the correct consistency to meet the weaning stage he was up to at that stage.

A smashing nursery that is taking care of two of my children. They only attend part time but the nursery has been invaluable in helping with the children's development. Without the nursery I don't believe their speech or physical.
Development would be as amazing as it is. Assistance with toilet training, table manners and dealing with their peers is all taken care of.

My son has been attending the nursery since he was seven months old. He is now two and a half and we feel both he and us as parents have been fully supported by all the nursery staff. We work together with key workers and other room members to progress my sons development and discuss any concerns/issues. My son's current key worker treats him as a member of her own family. I have every confidence in her and the nursery as a whole.

We find this nursery absolutely great. Frist of all, the level of care that the staff provide to our kid. Although our kid does not speak English, this nursery treats and educates extremely well that we could easily tell from our kids feedback. Additionally, we like the curriculum as well. This nursery does focus on being outdoors. As there's been many situations that kids tend to become more indoor, we are happy that the staff put their strong efforts to let kids play outside regardless of the weather. We are told of the activities that he did as well as what he eats on the same day, which truly help us to enhance our communication at home.

My little boy is 2 and a half and has attended Summerfields since he was 1 years old. I've been happy with his care throughout, the staff are all friendly and have a really positive attitude with the children. They do a good variety of activities every day. What attracted me to choose the nursery was the fact that there is great outdoor play area and the staff try to get the children out every day. It also has a very calm atmosphere. The menu is varied and the kids get a good healthy selection of food. I get daily updates and see pictures so i know what my son is up to every day. Overall I'd highly recommend Summerfields.

We have two children here, one in toddlers and one in pre-school after coming through rising three's so we have experienced all three age rooms. All rooms are spacious and light with plenty of things to keep the kids occupied and interested, the rooms also get moved about and refreshed from time to time. Each room has two sections, toilet/changing facilities, cloakrooms and their own small garden outside and each room also has access to the large playground and grassed area which has plenty of activities within.

Both our children are very happy here, they absolutely love the staff who show great concern for their well-being and happiness and also provide great assistance with all stages of a child's development such as walking, feeding themselves, changing their clothes, toilet training and social relationships.

The weekly music lesson is very much enjoyed and the staff are great at introducing new themes such that days are rarely too similar even when it's wet. The food provided is often changed and gives a good healthy variety of meal. We always receive feedback for each child at the end of every day.

My son started nursery a couple of weeks ago and so far we are very happy with the nursery. The 'settling in' period went extremely well, the staff are very friendly and professional and the facilities are excellent. Our son especially likes the rabbit. We visited 6 nurseries to send our son too, and we definitely picked the right one. I would definitely recommend Summerfields to all working parents looking for a full-time nursery.

Like any parent, I was nervous choosing the right childcare for my daughter when I went back to work. Kidsunlimited had been recommended by a number of people. My daughter has been there almost 1.5 years and she has grown into a lovely, confident, lovely little girl and I have no doubt the care she receives at the nursery has played a large part in this. She has fantastic support from the carers, very individual if needed, my daughter loves these people to bits. As a bilingual child she was encouraged to use more of English every day, today she is getting more and more confident by using both of the languages.

Thank you for your positive feedback, it's really appreciated.

This nursery have been brilliant in handling the transition from the toddler's group to the rising 3's group. The staff have been so kind and really reassuring throughout this process. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to other people.

My daughter enjoys going to this nursery and has improved in all areas of her development since she has attended in Jan 2013. All the staff are friendly and approachable and have a positive and encouraging influence on the children when my child has been upset the staff have comforted her and made her feel better. I would enrol any future siblings into Summerfields.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care we provide.

My daughter started at Summerfields when she was 22 months old. The staff were amazing helping her to settle into nursery life and it wasn't long before we struggled to get her into the car at the end of each day because she did not want to leave the nursery. She has recently started school and all that she learnt at nursery really has helped to build the foundations for the rest of her life. She looks forward to the school holidays, going to the holiday club at Summerfields and being able to 'play' all day. Whilst at the nursery full time she loved the weekly show and tell sessions, enjoyed eating healthy meals with her friends, playing outside - sometimes in the mud kitchen, on the bikes, the craft and art activities, singing with the music teacher every week and generally having fun. There is a really large outside space for the children to play outdoors. My daughter formed great bonds with the staff who looked after her and still talks about them fondly even though she doesn't see them often now. I would definitely recommend the nursery.

Thank you for your positive feedback.

My daughter came to Summerfields nursery and I was very pleased with her achievement by the time she went to school she was very confident and had good manners. I put this down to the staff at Summerfields who spent time with her for her to achieve this.

Thank you for your positive review.

My two year old son really enjoys Summerfields Nursery. He often talks about his friends, tells me that he loves them and names each member of staff that he loves too. He spends a lot of time outdoors, playing on the little bikes, gardening and generally having fun. It means a lot to me that he is out in the fresh air enjoying himself. He also does lots of activities indoors - painting, drawing, singing and dancing. He is definitely very happy and I am too.

Thank you for your positive review.

My daughter has attended the nursery for 4 years in which I have nothing but praise to give. The education she has received is second to none and now that she has left to start school I feel that she had all the preparation and more, to give her a good start from her time in the nursery. I'm proud to say she attended kidsunlimited Summerfields and would recommend them to anyone!

Thank you

Our son has been at Summerfields nursery for about 9 months, firstly in toddlers and now in rising 3s. So far we're very happy with the nursery. He attended another nursery beforehand but has come on so much since moving to Summerfields. We are very happy with the care he receives, we fully trust the staff and he loves it there. Staff at all levels are great with the children. One of the real plus points of the nursery is the outside space and the fact that the children get chance to play outside whatever the weather. Our son also enjoys the weekly music lessons. We are really happy with our choice to send our son here.

Thank you for your review. By giving us your feedback, you are helping us to understand what we do well.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for nearly a year and half now and is due her 2nd birthday towards the end of the year, within that time both my partner and I have noticed such a big progression in her social development. We initially started her at nursery reluctantly at quite a young age as my partner needed to return to work and we are really pleased we did. She is full of confidence, interacts well with other children, is constantly looking to learn and explore new things and her vocabulary and speech development impresses us more and more each day . I am obviously a biased parent but I fully believe that being part of the nursery family at Summerfields has enabled her to grow and progress as much as she has. A big thanks to all the wonderful staff and management, keep it up.

Thank you for your positive feedback.

My daughter started at the Summerfields nursery when she was one and moved from toddler to raising 3s and then to a preschool class. The facilities are excellent, rooms are bright and spacious and each direct access to it's own small garden, with one big outdoor area in the middle where the children can ride bikes or use a slide.

I cannot praise enough all the staff members in each room, for looking after her. She loves her nursery and the progress she made! She grew into happy independent and confidant little girl which is also give a credit to the nursery. I always feel staff are open and listen and genuinely care. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing her running happily outside in the garden with her little friends.

Description:

I started my adventure with Bright Horizons in December 2015, as a Deputy Manager at Summerfields. I currently hold a BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies from MMU. I am excited to be starting as Manager from October 2017.

Over the years I have gained a wealth of experience in childcare from working in the nursery at an independent school to working for a Montessori setting in New Zealand. Childcare is my passion and making sure that the highest level of care is given to the children at all times as well as having an environment set up for them that enables the children to explore and be challenged on a daily basis.”
