Reviews

9.1 Bright Horizons Livingston Early Learning and childcare has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.075)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Livingston 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Livingston Early Learning and childcare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.891 for Bright Horizons Livingston Early Learning and childcare is calculated as follows: ( (106 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.891

  • 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 4.184 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Livingston Early Learning and childcare 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 27.2 positive Reviews (136 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 27.2 Target = 0.184

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

I have had both my children at Bright Horizons and I had my son there from 8 months till he got a funded place last year at the age of 3.
My daughter is in the baby room just now and she is currently 8 months. I can't recommend this nursery enough. Staff are amazing and I recommend this nursery to anyone who inquires about where my children are at childcare. They made me feel at ease when going back to work both times with regular updates on their progress.
Staff are so caring to the children at the nursery and I am lucky that both my children have had a great experience with childcare and I hope for it to continue.

My little boy comes to Bright Horizons 4 days a week and loves it! He always comes home with a smile on his face, lots of stories to tell about his day and lots of sand in his shoes.
Bringing him to this nursery has brought him out of his shell in many ways and we have noticed this from day 1, he seems to have made lots of friends and the staff are lovely here, the food menu looks lovely.

Bright Horizons have always provided a very professional, inclusive service for my little boy who has attended since he was 9mths old - he turns 4 next month! He knows all the staff in the Nursery and enjoys catching up with team members regularly as they cross over rooms etc.
His development is encouraged and he enjoys the daily activities that allow him to express his thoughts and ideas in a productive way.
We receive good communication from the Nursery and know that we are able to contact them should we have any concerns or queries.

My sons are now 4 and 6. They have both attended the nursery since they were 8 months old and have thrived throughout their time at Livingston Nursery. My eldest son was thoroughly prepared for school and I trust that my youngest will have the same life skills to enable him to start school with the same confidence by the time he is ready to go to school also. The staff at this nursery are superb and make me feel at ease when leaving my children in their care. They all do a fantastic job even when under pressure. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for childcare in the Livingston area.

Both of my children attend (girl 16months and boy 4yrs) and I can't speak highly enough of the nursery.

When we relocated to Scotland, they made what was a difficult period of change for my son, much easier. The leaders and team members are great, they know my children really well and give me great feedback at the end of each day and at parents evenings. Everybody always has a smile and kind/thoughtful/interested words for us.

We receive weekly email updates including updates about the brilliant Growing Learners programme (unique to Bright Horizons and in my opinion, really sets them apart from other childcare providers).

There are large outdoor spaces and all other facilities are fantastic, clean and well maintained. I love the light and open library space.

I'm confident that my children are safe, happy and enjoying developing through the nursery's extremely child focussed and child led approach. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bright Horizons Livingston Nursery to anyone.

My little girl has been part of this nursery now for 5 months. I am confident that when at nursery she is getting the right support and have really seen her develop through the activities of the baby room.

My son has been going to Bright Horizons for around 6 months, and he has settled in brilliantly. I cannot recommend the team at Bright Horizons enough - they are incredibly friendly, welcoming and professional. My son actively looks forward to his days at nursery and has come on leaps and bounds since he has been going. The facilities are great, the nursery is clean, bright and welcoming and the outdoor area is fantastic. Communication is very good too, with weekly newsletters and a personal, tailored update on what he has been doing at the end of each day.

My daughter started nursery just before she turned one. She settled in very quickly and now loves nursery! My partner and I always recommend the nursery to anyone who asks. The staff are all fabulous, she gets a huge variety of indoor and outdoor activities - as well as a great meal plan.

We all love bright horizons and feel our daughter is benefiting from her time there.

My son has been in the nursery since he was 9 months and has been in 3 rooms - babies, toddlers and twos. I have found the staff in each the room to be amazing with the children. They are very patient and understanding with the children and only too happy to accommodate any requests I have had. There is always a friendly face in the morning when dropping off and in the evenings they will always take the time to go through what my son has done during the day that is personal to his experience.

There is fantastic communication from the management on the day to day running of the nursery via their newsletters and they take the time to organise social events for the nursery children (e.g. Easter egg hunts etc) which gives us as parents the opportunity to spend time with other parents in the nursery and socialise. The amount of hard work everyone puts in, that is over and above what is needed, is amazing and massively appreciated.
