Reviews

9.8 Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.800)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool 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 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 19 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 4.887 for Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (339 Excellents x 5) + (39 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 380 Ratings = 4.887

  • 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 4.913 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 19 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 20.8 positive Reviews (104 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 20.8 Target = 0.913

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

We have two children at the nursery and would recommend it in a heartbeat. Everyone's always so happy and friendly and the children are extremely well looked after. They have no problems catering for allergies, even those children who have multiple common ones have an extremely varried range of food. All the rooms are bright and inviting as well. The staff are also more then happy to assist with things like physio and are accommodating if appointments need to happen at the nursery. They also provide all nappies and wipes (and formula) which is a massive bonus!

Having only been at the nursery for 4 months I am delighted with how welcoming all staff have been to us and our daughter. Thanks to them, she settled in quickly and loves going there. She is much more confident and outgoing now and is learning quickly. The facilities and equipment are fully utilised and maintained excellently. The nursery is always clean and the variety of meals is excellent. The staff have introduced our child to foods that she may not have encouraged at home for some time and thanks to this, she is always willing to try new things. I am delighted that we chose this nursery, we all love it and would definitely recommend.

I have nothing but good words to say about this nursery - I regularly go and pick up my nephew...He simply loves it.

He has attended there for several months now and has experienced two of the four rooms. I must say all of the staff I come into contact with are brilliant and have so much time for parents and the children.

The fees cover everything so when I am dropping him off in the morning it is so easy, just drop and go. There is always a warm welcoming smile from everyone we see at the nursery.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the staff at Bright Horizons Crewe. Our second child has just started school. She and our son attended this nursery from the age of one until starting school.
The staff are so friendly, helpful and encouraging. The facilities are great, clean, tidy and the varied activities that they offer are fantastic. Each age group has their own outdoor space too which we found brilliant as many nurseries we looked at had shared areas.
We can't thank everyone at Bright Horizons Crewe enough for helping our two children develop into the lovely children that they are.

My daughter has experienced a warm and confident settling in period at the nursery.
She is very happy with her peers and teachers, she is very comfortable when I leave her - which was a concern for me as we have been through turbulent times as a family.
Having to work late one night, my fear was my daughter would be very upset but when I arrived she was so happy having a one to one session with the lead teacher.
Very reassuring experience and great setting.

Everything about this nursery makes me smile, from the moment I walked in and was greeted by Deputy Manager.
I was given a personal tour around the nursery and was made to feel special and unique with my little baby daughter, with you every room and everybody in each room was happy and friendly.
I was told about everything and every eventuality of circumstances.
After being given many settling in sessions, my little girl started there three days a week and I cannot say a bad word about the nursery. We are greeted on a daily basis with enthusiasm and positivity and I know this lasts throughout my child's stay at the nursery. The amount I pay covers everything from the formula milk my baby drinks, to the nappies that she wears each and every day.
The nursery has outside gardens for each child and age group which are specifically designed for them.There is always something fun and exciting going on here and it is a great place for my child to grow up in. Thank you to everybody at the nursery.

My little boy started at the nursery towards the end of January and he has settled in beautifully. I feel confident leaving him and knowing that he is going to have a fun packed day and is well cared for.

All of the staff are friendly and helpful and you are always greeted with a smile no matter what time of the day it is.

Extra special recognition to the ladies in the baby room. You do a fab job and my little boy loves you all to pieces.

You should all be so proud of yourselves, keep up the good work.

Thank you x

My daughter has been attending Bright Horizons for around the last 8 months. The first thing I would comment on is the most important aspect of the nursery, the staff, they're fantastic! Our daughter struggles with confidence and when starting the nursery she was very shy! This wasn't just from being new, she'd been shy at a previous nursery but I was never satisfied with their approach on how to develop our daughter and grow her confidence. Bright Horizons has been amazing! They're focused on growth/development and well educated in techniques on how to identify a strength/weakness and coach children. The difference this made to our daughter is vast, they have made such an improvement to our daughters early years! And they've done all of this with so much fun, learning and developing through play.
This nursery truly is a special place. I hold it by far, way above any other in the area! I would strongly recommend you take a visit just to see for yourselves. I wish I could write more!

Choosing a Nursery is a challenge for all parents. However I am extremely pleased I chose this fantastic Nursery for my little girl. From the first time I looked around, my family and I were automatically welcomed. The knowledge and experience of all the staff at the nursery is exceptional. If I ever have a question or a query the staff are always willing to help and support where ever possible. My little girl has attended this Nursery for 6 months now and she has flourished and developed with the help, patience and guidance of her key workers in the baby room. At first I was a little anxious to leave my child, like most new mums, but the staff reassured me by offering settling in sessions to help support transition from home to Nursery. Now my little girl is eager to put on her coat and bag and waves goodbye to me before I have left the room.

Kidsunlimited offer fantastic opportunities for all parents to be involved in different events throughout the year. I particularly enjoy the weekly newsletters that are sent to all parents. Not only does it inform you about what your child has been up to, but what the entire nursery has achieved that week. The ethos of the Nursery is infectious; as soon as you walk into the building you are greeted and all staff members know the names of all of the children. There is a great sense of community cohesion and all staff members strive to ensure that the quality of play is to a high standard. I would highly recommend this Nursery to everyone.

All the staff in the nursery have first aid qualification and up to date police check. The staff always make my son feel welcome, safe & secure. The nursery adapt meals or activities to suit the children and families. If child has addition needs they ensure that the key person and special education needs coordinator have regular meetings to review the child's development and set actions on what to do to support the child this is carried out every 3 months. Lots of parent involvement with child's development and event in the nursery. My son has been there from 9 months old and has progressed so well. He has developed through playing an fun activities. He loves attending nursery. Each room has there own outdoor area which is secured with wooden fences and gates around them. Always able to read my child observations during drop of or collections. The planning for activities and children's next steps in development are always displayed.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 12 Jan 2016:

Thank you so much for your positive feedback.

My son was very well cared for during his time at the nursery. The staff in the baby and toddler room were very caring and professional. All staff that we came into contact with were great. Being able to book extra sessions was really helpful as a shift worker and took some stress out of the working week. The nursery was always well maintained and felt safe for my little one. The manager was very approachable and nothing was to much trouble for her.

All the staff are fantastic and can't do enough to help. My little boy loves going to nursery there. The extended opening hours are ideal for me with being able to drop off early and picking up late depending on my work commitments that day

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care our nursery provides.

I currently have a 2 year old in toddler 1 and my eldest spent four years at the nursery. The staff are all really friendly or extremely good at their jobs and always ensure they are there to answer any concerns you have. They pair children up with key workers that will ensure the best is brought out of them, but are also willing to alter the matches if the child develops a better bond with somebody else. The mail choices ensure children have a balanced diet and are varied so all foods are tried. The activities chosen are engaging and specific and can get very messy! But it is all based around fun. I trusted Kidsunlimited Crewe with both my children's development and would encourage anybody else to do the same.

Description:

I joined kidsunlimited (now Bright Horizons) as a student at the Wilmslow site. My love for working professionally alongside children developed rapidly and it was clear that my childhood career aspirations were correct.

II have been lucky enough to work at a number of kidsunlimited and Bright Horizons nurseries such as Didsbury, Summerfields and Chester. My leader role was a fantastic career progression and I spent many years developing strong relationships with children, parents, and team members. I trained to become an NVQ assessor in Childcare for a private training company in 2005.

I have two children whom both attend Crewe nursery. I love being part of an amazing team that really do make a difference in the children's lives we care for.
