Reviews

9.8 Bright Horizons Leeds Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.762)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Leeds 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 41 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Leeds Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.762 for Bright Horizons Leeds Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (380 Excellents x 5) + (107 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 492 Ratings = 4.762

  • 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 Bright Horizons Leeds Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 16 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 13.8 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.

My daughter has been coming here since she was a baby and the progress she has made in her time here is excellent. She integrates on a daily basis with children of all races, faiths and languages, they are all treated equally by the staff and this teaches the children to act the same way.

There is a wide range of activities to ensure she doesn't get bored. She often comes home, excited to tell me what she has done that day and who with and it is always different. We have noticed her confidence growing in regards to learning new things, which can only help when she moves to 'big' school. In summary, I think this nursery is an excellent starting point for anyone looking for somewhere to bring their child

Since my daughter has started nurser,y her development and personal skills have come on in leaps and bounds. This is directly linked to the care and assistance she has received from nursery and the interaction she receives. She has made many friends and communicates well between nursery staff and family and friends. They are willing to accommodate any requirement she has had and were great in settling her into the nursery. I would recommend the nursery very highly.

After taking a while to decide on a nursery we visited Tadpoles and both myself and my daughter felt instantly comfortable. The team have taken time to listen to our concerns and always take time to update us. My daughter would happily play 24/7 at Tadpoles.

I feel confident leaving her with staff and always have done. All staff have always been very welcoming. She is provided with a range of different activities and new experiences which have really built her confidence. We cannot thank staff enough for the care that she has received.

The staff are very kind and supportive with lots of aspects of life and have supported our whole family through a few challenges. I am so grateful knowing my daughter has somewhere safe and happy to play while I'm working.

I am really happy with the care my son receives at Bright Horizons Leeds Nursery and most importantly my son is. The staff are all caring and friendly and provide feedback on what my son has been doing and have been reassuring and helpful at more difficult drop-offs. They (staff and managers) coped amazingly well during the floods early this year going above and beyond to provide a professional service, continuity of care and a caring environment.

This is our second child in the nursery and we are very happy. All staff are friendly and welcoming including support staff such as chef and cleaner. All areas are kept clean and tidy and each room is provided with lovely toys and activity areas for the children. All meals are cooked fresh on site and certainly received no complaints from our two!

I am a mother of two children, one who started at the nursery at 6 months old and is now at primary school, and the other who started at the nursery at 7 months old and has just started in the pre-school class. For both my children, the genuine care at the nursery has been second to none. We kept our second child at the nursery after moving house as despite a 45 minute round journey we felt that we would not be able to match the care, attention and support for development that our children receive at this nursery anywhere else. On a recent school holiday, our daughter said she wished she could go back and be at nursery in the holidays. That says it all to me.
The rooms are all clean with great equipment for each age range, with an outdoor play area with garden and nutritious meals cooked on site by the chef.
The most important factor is the ethos of the nursery which is a partnership with parents. If you have to work, to be welcomed and still have a say in children's care is vital.

The staff at this nursery are better compared to the rarest of diamonds. My little boy has just left to start 'big' school since joining at 9 months old and the level of care he received was second to none. Never have I seen a team so caring and devoted to a child's development and the management are so amazing. The food is prepared with the greatest of love by a fantastic chef and every member of staff is extremely approachable. Would highly recommend this setting to any parent**.

My son has developed leaps and bounds since coming to Tadpoles. All the staff have always been friendly and great with my boy, he will often ask for the carers when at home and is always excited to tell them what he has done when he has been away.
This shows to me the staff have bonded well with my son and show enough of an interest for him to care for them. I would highly recommend Tadpoles as I don't believe my son would be as developed and polite without the hard work of the team.

My son has been at nursery since he was nine months old, and is now getting ready to leave for school. During his time at nursery I feel he has been nurtured through the various rooms and has consistently been cared for by the staff. One particular member of staff has been with him throughout and always makes him feel at ease if he becomes upset or worried about something. I love the fact that when he comes home he talks about the staff as his friends as well as his peers. The staff have always made me feel comfortable leaving my son and always keep me informed about his day and activities.

I am extremely happy with all aspects of this nursery. It was slightly more expensive than other nurseries I visited but instantly felt more confident in the staff and surroundings. My child has been in three different rooms and all of the staff are consistent and excellent. She has settled into each room well. The activities are always age appropriate and varied. The garden area is excellent. The food choices are varied and encourage a good liking of food stuffs.

My son has attended this nursery since the age of 11 months. Since attending he has developed so much and has great social skills because of his early interaction with other children in a busy environment. He has the best relationship with his key workers, especially his male key worker who he has developed a strong bond with over the years. He is now aged 3, and it's reassuring when I hear my son talking positively about his key worker and little friends because I knew he is happy. I'd like to thank all the staff for the hard work over the years.

Since starting at Leeds Day Nursery at the end of 2015, my daughter has settled in wonderfully. All of the nursery staff have been fantastic, helping her to settle in and make fer feel welcome. The range of activities that the children take part in is brilliant and varied. The outside play area and garden is lovely and it's fantastic that the children are able to take part in growing and cooking the food they eat.

My child has been attending the nursery since she was 6 months old. The staff are fantastic they know my child's individual needs through a key person system and I couldn't wish for a better key worker. My child's speech and language was a little delayed and nursery has helped her incredibly to catch up to where she needs to be. The staff there have been there for plenty of years and have a good strong team. My child comes home and constantly talks about nursery its a big part of her life and don't know where I would be without them.

My little girl has been attending the nursery since she was 7 months old. Through all 3 rooms she has been in, I cannot praise the staff enough. All staff are more then happy to talk to me regarding my little girl's development, exciting activities she has taken part in and just her general day to day care.
Throughout the 2 years my little girl has been coming their has always been a consistence in her care e.g. long standing staff team.
When leaving my little girl at nursery I know she will be receiving 3 healthy meals that is always cooked on site by the chef. The meals offer a wide range of taste and offer her something I would not always cook at home.
going back to work was one of the hardest things I ever had to do but leaving her at Bright Horizons Leeds made this a lot easier knowing my little girl was happy, safe and very well looked after.

The nursery deserves proper credit for coping and re-housing the children during the floods in December. We barely noticed the transition to the temporary building. There was always a positive atmosphere and the children come first. Well done to all the staff!
