Reviews

8 Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd has a Review Score of 8 (7.950)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd 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 4.839 for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (151 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.839

  • 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 3.111 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Stars Childcare Services Ltd is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.111

  • 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 attended this nursery when he was 2 all the way until he was 4 when he left for school, when my son started he didn't talk much, was shy around new people and never left my side unless myself or his dad was with him and was never confident. The change in him for those 2 years was absolutely incredible! The care and time spent on him, I will forever be in their debt! He always learned something new every day! I really couldn't recommend Bright Stars enough! I have so many fond memories! And any children following my son I will be sure to send them here! Thank you all so much!

My daughter has been coming here for around four years, and my son since February 2015. Bright Stars are a very well established nursery. The girls in the baby room are fantastic, it's like home from home for my son. My daughter gets collected from school, she really enjoys her time here. Everyone is great.

I have two children in the nursery. The nursery has evolved from a small to one with several additions over the years. It has a great outdoor area for all ages. Staff are very professional and friendly. I feel my children are very well looked after.

Bright Stars has been home away from home for my two daughters. They're cared for in a safe, loving environment with the opportunity to learn new things everyday. Basic care is excellent and are given a healthy and varied menu each week for snacks/lunch. The staff are all very lovely and helpful. Facilities are fantastic and always very clean. There's no other place I'd rather take my two little girls. I think its great and always recommend it anyone who is looking for a nursery.

We are delighted that our daughter has a place at Bright Stars. The nursery was highly recommend by a good friend. Our daughter often greets staff by putting her arms out, which makes us feel confident that the staff are doing their job right, as she wants to be there. She can't wait to start playing when she arrives each day and begin joining in with the daily activities. She seems to enjoy all the different varieties of food that she is given.

When I first visited Bright Stars I knew there and then it was the nursery I wanted my daughter to attend. I love how homely it feels and the staff are so experienced. My daughter loves it here and there is no where else I would want to her to go. The facilities are amazing, indoor and out! I would definitely recommend.

Our little girl started at Bright Stars almost a year ago and we have been impressed by all areas. The staff are wonderful, taking account of the personal interest of our child. My daughter's key worker is a credit to the establishment. She is always keeping us well informed about our daughter's progress and what she has been up to. The Bright Stars setting is what we all love about the nursery, it is a home from home. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
