The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Cramond Early Learning and Childcare 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Cramond Early Learning and Childcare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.94 for Bright Horizons Cramond Early Learning and Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.94

  • 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 3.349 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Cramond Early Learning and Childcare is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 20.2 positive Reviews (101 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 20.2 Target = 0.099

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

My wife and I had complete confidence in the nursery throughout the time that our boys were there (July 2015-September 2017). We thought that the staff were very professional and the facilities, activities and resources were excellent in every respect.

Great nursery, staff are friendly and caring and provide a happy environment for children to play and learn. The food is cooked on site and is fresh and healthy. The nursery also has two outdoor play areas and the children go out to play most days.

We have had our daughter in the nursery for a year now, and we couldn't have asked for a better place for her.

We are very pleased. The staff are amazing, approachable and go the extra mile.

The location is very good and the facilities area also excellent, both indoors and outdoors.

Our daughter is very happy there, making friends and learning new skills (including a second language!).

My daughter has attended Cramond Early Learning and Childcare since 9 months, she is now four. The nursery has played a huge part in her development and how much she has improved, my daughter has a good relationship with all staff in the nursery who in every room provided fun and educational activities from babies to pre-school. All areas of the nursery are based on the needs of the children with so much more, the nursery and staff always go that little bit further to provide the best quality care for my child.

My daughter attended this nursery from 9 months old until she went to school. The nursery has helped her develop all of her social and emotional skills and gave her a good head start into her school learning. This is down to the fantastic and caring staff and welcoming nature of the whole nursery so much so that now my son attends this nursery and will do so until he goes to school.

Both of my children attend this nursery. I cant fault it, the staff are fantastic and my children love it. My husband and I are more than happy with the care given. Great recommendation given to us by friends and we defiantly recommend the nursery to others. Amazing to have your children looked after and nurtured when you are not able to, in a stimulating, fun & friendly environment.
