  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.643 for Bright Stars Private Day Nursery, Halifax is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.643

  • 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 4.272 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Stars Private Day Nursery, Halifax is based on 5 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 18.4 positive Reviews (92 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 18.4 Target = 0.272

I picked this nursery for my son mainly for the staff, location and beautiful rooms and I have not been disappointed. My son has thrived at Bright Stars. After looking at schools (for next year) I can highly recommend the preschool room as I have found my son is already taking part in activities he will be doing at school like phonics etc. He will be so prepared I'm confident that he is being given the best tools to move on in his next steps.
His younger brother is due to start in January and I know he's in good hands.
I can't recommend it enough.
Just a few good points are the staff, chef and meals, show and tell (this is fab as staff always take a genuine interest at home and has built his confidence) friends and charity events. Plus it keeps getting better with new things being introduced and always asking for feedback that is then put in place.

When I visited Bright Stars Nursery for the first time, I didn't think it was the most spacious or greatest place, but when member of staff who was showing me around noticed a boy with a runny nose and asked to be excused for a minute so she could clean him up - I knew that it was the place I wanted to send my daughter to.

She is settling in well. Every morning we've been greeted with a smile and cuddles from members of staff. It feels great. They're always happy to answer my phone calls and tell me how she's doing. Also, I have to compliment the staff's creativity and observation. When they noticed what my daughter enjoyed doing, they made something up, especially for her to keep her entertained. It's so sweet and thoughtful.

Probably the only thing I would like them to do - is to spend more time outdoors, but I understand that it's not easy to do it on wet autumn days.
I do recommend this nursery and if you decide to send your child there, I hope you'll fall in love with it the way we did.

Our daughter has been attending for almost a year now. She has come on leaps and bounds and we couldn't be more pleased.

The staff are all highly dedicated and make sure parents are listened to and children are supported in their development through fun and play. Our daughter loves the nursery and will often not want to come home at the end of the day.

Over the last year, our daughter has developed a good relationship with the staff and will often talk about them at home. We couldn't ask for better from them all.

The food is great too, a wide variety is provided and must be good as our daughter will regularly have 2 portions.

Overall, we are very pleased with the nursery and the staff and can't speak more highly of them. We have seen first-hand how much love, care and attention our daughter has received and know this is the same for all the children at the nursery.

I find the nursery staff to be very friendly and accommodating. I have on occasion had to swap my nursery days and this has always been possible with no queries which is extremely helpful for me and very important when choosing a nursery. My son enjoys going and often does not want to come away!

My son has been going to this nursery for more than a year now; he has attended five days a week and currently in half day sessions and my kids goes for full-time during school holidays. They both enjoy going to this nursery. The staff are very good and polite. Both of my kids like them the most and loves to go every day (of course on Mondays my little one makes some fuss, but the staff manage him very well and they take good care of him). The Manager is good and easy to approach. One of the biggest advantages is location and is a convenient location to my work. I wanted to thank each one of the staff got their polite and taking good care of the children. I would recommend this nursery.

My daughter has attended this nursery since 9 months of age. She has attended different days of the week and currently attends 4 days per week. She will be leaving to start school this September. I believe that attending this nursery has made my daughter confident and prepared her for school. She is also not a fussy eater which I believe is down to the menu which is very varied. I find the service personal and caring. The manager is always on hand or will call me back quickly if I have any questions about anything. I will be putting my daughter in to their holiday club in the school holidays as it's a familiar surrounding for her and it's a convenient location to my work. I can't Thank them enough as it's been like a second home/family for my daughter. I would recommend this nursery.
