  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Elsie Inglis Early Learning and Childcare in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.631 for Bright Horizons Elsie Inglis Early Learning and Childcare is calculated as follows: ( (222 Excellents x 5) + (104 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 336 Ratings = 4.631

  • 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 Elsie Inglis Early Learning and Childcare is based on 24 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 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 13 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 youngest son has been at Elsie's since 10 months old. My oldest son also attended until school age. Both have very different personalities and both have thrived at the nursery. The staff really care about the children and get to know them and ensure the child is happy, settled and safe. The entire team at Elsie's are professional, caring and flexible. The food is healthy and varied and second (and sometimes even third!) helpings are often requested.

Elsie Ingles nursery is a very friendly and nurturing environment and having used this nursery for over four years, I have never had any cause for complaint.
The children are cared for to a very high standard and are really happy there. Communication from the teachers to parents is excellent and I feel they have the best interests of the children at heart.

The girls and staff at Elsie's are really good with my daughter. She loves going into the baby room and seeing all her wee friends and having fun with the girls. She has adapted well to nursery, this is with the help of such good people working with her in the baby room.

I am very happy with Elsie Inglis Nursery. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time at the nursery which is a sure sign she is looked after well. I am very impressed with how my daughter is developing and this is down to the effort the staff put into helping her talk and develop her skills.

I really liked this nursery from the very first visit. There's so much space to accommodate the different age groups inside and out. It's a safe, stimulating, fun and caring environment. Our daughter absolutely loves it, which is the best review!

I have a lot of respect and time for the fabulous and supportive staff in the various rooms, the kitchen and the office.

Highly recommended.

I have been extremely happy with my son's care at Elsie Inglis. He is very happy there which is the most important thing.

The food options are varied and he seems to eat a lot more than he will at home!

They play outside in the garden a lot and sometimes (although not as much as I had originally been told).

I've been happy with the staff and their care of our son.

The staff are fantastic and I feel happy and secure in the knowledge that she is safe and well looked after.

I think this nursery is fantastic and I wouldn't have her anywhere else.

We are very happy with the care and learning experiences our son receives at Elsie Inglis Nursery. He has transitioned from the Baby Room to the Toddler Room, then on to the Twos Room. Each time we felt well informed and that the transition process was handled sensitively and with our son's needs and best interests at the heart of the process. All the staff that we have encountered have been fantastic; welcoming, kind, helpful, friendly and most importantly, great with our son.

He loves to play outdoors and Elsie Inglis accommodate this daily, rain suits and wellies if necessary! On collection, the staff have a personal story or two about how they have got on during the day, which we love to hear. We have encountered difficulty getting our son to eat/taste his meals, but staff have been supportive and patient with both our son and us throughout.

We would love to see more pictures of the children and the activities throughout the day, through a parents-only group perhaps?

Great nursery, caring and attentive staff, every age group has their own room and outdoor play area. Our son is very happy here. The staff think about the little things like if we forget a jacket for him on a sunny day and then later it gets colder, if the children go outside they make sure they put a top on him so he stays warm.

I must thank Elsie Inglis for taking such good care of my son. I've had a horrible experience in the past with another nurse when my son ended up in a hospital and was never able to adjust there. I was quite scared while enrolling him at Elsie Inglis but within a month I could see my son adjusting. He absolutely loves the staff and I see them quite open to ideas and suggestions which is wonderful. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

I've got 2 children and they are both at Elsie Inglis. I don't have anything negative to say about the nursery, staff are very caring, attentive, interested...
They always give some honest feedback about the day and both kids are happy to go in the morning.

The staff is professional and friendly and the place itself is peaceful.

Fantastic nursery! The staff are all very friendly, caring and helpful. My son has been at the nursery for almost 2 years now, he is very fond of all staff and has also made lots of friends in his room. The facilities at the nursery are excellent, all the rooms are very well equipped and the gardens provide great space for the children to get out and run about in the fresh air. The nursery offers a good variety of meals and I'm always happy that my son will have eaten well. My experience of the nursery has been brilliant and I would definitely recommend it to others.

The staff are amazing! They all take a very personal interest in our child and instantly make you feel at home. I have no worries about my daughter not being settled as she always looks more disappointed about leaving nursery than being left. We get a detailed outline of her day and what she has been up to and had to eat. If she ever does take a tumble or feel unwell they give you a call to let you know and allow you to decide how you want to proceed. But we know that she is in safe hands. Excellent nursery.

Great nursery - friendly, enthusiastic staff and my 4-year-old son comes home spouting facts about the animals, countries, nature things they have been learning about. He is very engaged by the learning and loves the way stuff link the topics eg. they made fortune cookies for Chinese New Year. The nursery provides mini-French lessons and dance classes which he loves. The staff at the nursery have been very supportive when my son was diagnosed last year with a long-term medical condition. Couldn't have asked for more!

We are very satisfied with the care provided to our child, he has been at the nursery for over 12 months. They ensure a smooth transition between the rooms & ensure they settle in well. Our child takes part in a wide variety of activities provided by the staff from painting, class tasks, home projects, role play, exploring new things, dance, singing & also externally provided, in fact, he looks forward to Sparkle Arts weekly. He enjoys going to nursery and looks forward it. The outside space is very good & is used daily, there is a good range of outdoor toys & equipment for the children to use. I feel there is a really good balance between structured learning and independent play. The meals are all prepared on site and are a very good balance nutritionally, the nursery provide an update daily on what's eaten and a weekly menu which helps with planning at home! The staff are a major part of the success, they are committed & have a real passion for what they do and this come across.

I feel Elsie Inglis Nursery provides a really nice environment for my daughter. I especially like the lay out of the nursery inside with all the little rooms each group has to use. I also like the additional facilities that the nursery offers - i.e Step it up Dance etc which luckily enough my daughter is in nursery that day that this activity takes place.
Another reason I like this nursery is that the staff are friendly and the management staff are really helpful with any enquiries that I may have had in the past.
The in-house chef and menu selection is also really good - I feel my daughter receives a well-balanced diet from the meals provided on a daily basis.

Our son started at Elsie Inglis when he was 11 months old and has been there for more than 2 years transitioning through all the rooms in turn. All the staff have been excellent - caring, fun, approachable, knowledgeable and sensitive to his different baby/toddler developments and all its inherent mood, emotional and behavioural changes. They are always accommodating and flexible and can be relied on absolutely to come up with innovative ways of cheering him up on sad days if traditional cuddles and stories don't work. Apart from the fun, they are excellent teachers and support all his learning (not just academic) including feeding, independence, manners, empathy, sharing and now toilet training. When I leave him there to go to work, I can concentrate on work trusting that he is safe, happy, cared for and stimulated, which is priceless. I admit to hardly thinking/worrying about him at all during the work day! The on-site chef is a bonus and his meals are excellent, varied and healthy.

Our son has been here since the baby room and now he is in 2's room. Most recent transition co-insided with a new sibling, changing from cot to bed and a new bedroom and great consideration was given to us so it all didn't clash. I find staff always make time to talk about things bothering us or questions we have about new milestones etc. and advise how to deal with them.

The staff at Elsie Inglis Nursery take their time to communicate with parents and they always have a good supply of clothes if our son needs them. The outdoor space is good and he loves riding on the tricycle. The staff often take the children out to Holyrood Park for walks and to pick leaves and other objects of nature.
