Reviews

7.8 Bright Beginnings Falkirk has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.770)

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Beginnings Falkirk is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Beginnings Falkirk in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.702 for Bright Beginnings Falkirk is calculated as follows: ( (166 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.702

  • 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 3.068 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Beginnings Falkirk is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.068

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

My son transferred to Bright Beginnings Falkirk recently and the staff were very accommodating to the implications of what this meant to him and to us. They went above and beyond. He loves going to nursery every morning and is progressing really well. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery.

I have two children at Bright Beginnings and I am really pleased with the care they receive. My children enjoy attending the nursery and I feel it has been beneficial for them in a number of ways including helping to develop their language skills when they were younger and general socialisation skills. Transitions between different rooms as they have gotten older have been well handled and the staff are always very helpful at answering any questions or addressing any queries.
The newsletters are also very informative.

Bright Beginnings is a great nursery for kids,would highly recommend it. Staff are brilliant. This has really helped my son come on leaps and bounds. They learn the kids very well. The kids always do loads of great activities and all work together. I love the learning journals to see what my son has been up to every week in the nursery.

My son has been attending the nursery since he was 11 months he is now 3. The staff have all been wonderful, and they have all helped my wee boy transition from baby room up to Rainbow room (pre-school). The nursery has a very high standard of care and they have been very accommodating towards our son's needs from day one.

Since dealing with bright beginnings over the last couple of months I have been very pleased with service so far. My baby has settled into baby room well and I put this down to the strong team in the baby room who work very well together and seem to have a good mix of skills and experience. They have also been very helpful & supportive to myself with various queries I have had which has been a great help & given me comfort when leaving my baby. It is clear my baby is enjoying her time at nursery and is getting varied activities. I am pleased with her sleeping and eating progress at nursery. Also, I like the daily update sheet I receive/ learning journal updates & staff have been open to raise and discuss any concerns with me where appropriate which is a positive thing to do. Overall very pleased with support and care my baby has been receiving.

My son has been going to the nursery for 1 year. Half day each week and seems to be settling in ok. He settles great when I leave and really enjoys himself at nursery. All nursery staff are great with him and he has built up some great relationships with staff.
My son eats well and a balanced snack at nursery and I enjoy getting his feedback sheet at the end of each day to know what he's been up to and it's always full of new and fun games and adventures. I am very happy with him going to the nursery and cannot fault any of the staff or facilities.

My son has been going to this nursery for nearly 3 years now and has been an extremely happy, well-cared for little boy during his time here. He is given the chance to gain a wide range of different experiences and I feel he has been well supported during important changes, such as potty-training and moving to different rooms.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review Shona, we really appreciate it and are so glad you and your family are happy with our service!

My son enjoys going to nursery and looks forward to seeing his friends and the staff every Wednesday. He does all types of in house learning and activities and enjoy-a-ball too, which he loves. I would recommend Bright Beginnings.

Our daughter has been here since she was 4 months old and has thrived. The staff have had a huge influence over her life and have been caring as well as challenging.

She has developed well and is well established in her peer group.

We're currently potty training and the staff have been very supportive.

Some of the areas in the nursery are a little tired (mostly the outdoor space) but the warmth and commitment of the staff are much more important to our daughter's experience.

I would definitely recommend Bright Beginnings nursery to any parent and have already signposted one mother to the nursery.
I have had not a single issue with the nursery or its staff. I leave my daughter in the nursery for two full days and she is very well looked after and cared for, I have no worries about leaving her.
She is given a varied lunch every time she is in which is puréed to suit her age.
The staff are so welcoming and extremely loving towards my daughter- again making it easier to leave her in the nursery.
I found the introductory visits extremely useful when my daughter started in the nursery for not just my daughter but for myself.
No issues. Highly recommend.

My son has attended Bright Beginnings, Falkirk, since January 2015 when he 9 months old and returned to work full time, he has a great time and has made lots of little friends. He is now an extremely confident and chatty little boy. A wide range of food is offered at lunch and my son certainly seems to enjoy it. I would certainly recommend Bright Beginnings Falkirk to any of my friends and family.

Brilliant nursery. My little girl has been attending for about 10 months now and she loves it. Her development has really come on since attending. Staff are all fantastic and it's reassuring to know my child is in such good hands. My little girl will be leaving soon however we will be looking for a place for my little boy as we have been so impressed with Bright Beginnings!
