The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool 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 44 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 13 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 4.782 for Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (419 Excellents x 5) + (103 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 528 Ratings = 4.782

  • 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 4.657 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 13 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 19.8 positive Reviews (99 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 19.8 Target = 0.657

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

The nursery has a lovely atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. The management team are always happy and welcoming and make it easier for my daughter to come into nursery with their happy, smiling faces. My daughter goes straight to her key person for a cuddle before breakfast.

The children's learning stories are always accessible for the parents to look through and you can arrange a working in partnership with your key person at any time to discuss your child's development. She never wants to come home which makes me feel happy as a working parent to know I have put my child in a nursery where they safeguard her and ensure she has a fun and enjoyable day at nursery.

Nothing is ever too much trouble for the team they will always make cards for family members birthdays, invite grandparents and parents into the nursery to enjoy fun activities with the children. The nursery is graded outstanding from Ofsted and you can see why from the moment you walk into the nursery!

The staff at the nursery are excellent, they provide a high standard of care for my child. The staff are friendly, professional and always meet our needs as a family.

The management team are very approachable and caring and work extremely hard to meet the needs of every family.

The nursery has PNA meetings quarterly where the parents can sit down and discuss nursery topics and events, I have found this a great way to get to know the families. I recently attended a Halloween event at the nursery called "The Ugly Bug Ball" with my daughter, you could tell how much hard work the team put in for the children and parents to have an enjoyable time together.

I would recommend this nursery to all families, the service we have received is outstanding!!

My daughter has been attending the nursery for almost a year now and she loves it!! Every morning as we pull into the car park she gets excited clapping her hands and cheering.

The staff are fantastic with my daughter and always go that extra mile with her care, her learning journey is amazing and is a true reflection on my daughter with great observations and photographs it’s great to look at and see where she is up to in her development.

The manager of the nursery is always warm and friendly and will always greet us with a friendly hello and a quick chat showing lots of interest in both myself and my daughter's lives.

The manager noticed how on arrival my daughter would always reach out for the pens on the desk as she likes to draw with them so therefore she produced a notepad and pen which is now left out at the children’s height in reception so my daughter can have a quick scribble on the way in which she loves as she now feels very important.

My son has attended this nursery for almost 3 years. He started at only 15 weeks in the baby room. We all built a fantastic bond with both his key worker and room staff they quickly understand and met all of his needs before introducing me to his 6-week development check. We discussed his development and how we would all support his next milestones.

Fast forward 3 years and his is thriving in the nurseries pre-school unit!! He attends Spanish lessons every week which he loves, (the nursery email us the song sheets so we can all join in at home). He has been fully prepared for his transition into school as the team delivers a high standard of letters and sounds supported by the companies own reading, writing and mathematics curriculum.

We have also just been informed that the nursery garden is about to be refurbished to include an additional baby garden!!! As a family we are very passionate about the outdoors so were very pleased to hear of the new garden.

Our son started here two months ago at the age of eleven months. All of the team from management to carers have been absolutely wonderful. Our son loves his key person and the other nursery assistants. Everyone seems to know him and welcome him every morning. I never feel any worry when I drop him off in the morning and know that he will have a fun day and will be well looked after. They also have been helping him to develop skills that I work with him on at home. I have nothing negative I could say about this nursery.

The baby room is interactive and encouraging for playing and learning.

We joined the nursery last year and have been so happy with the care and professionalism of the team at Sale. Working with children myself, I wanted to ensure the nursery was committed to early years development as well as creating a fun and enjoyable space. The team here go above and beyond to achieve this and my daughter loves coming every day. The warmth of the team is truly wonderful and with number 2 on the way, I'm so pleased I found a nursery that is a great fit for us.

The management and staff at Bright Horizons Sale are fantastic and I can see how they received an outstanding grade from Ofsted, they genuinely care about the needs of my family and my son is very happy in the baby room. The memory boxes are a particularly good idea as I felt I could contribute to my son settling in by making up a box of his favourite home comforts for the girls to share with him. Very happy with my decision.

Delighted we have chosen this nursery for our son. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and reassuring and I feel very comfortable leaving my baby boy with them. The outdoor area is fantastic, just what we are looking for as an active family, also the rooms are bright, stimulating and well-resourced with lovely displays featuring my son's artwork. The fees are all inclusive too which is great for getting out of the house quicker in the morning! Can't recommend enough!

A couple of years ago this nursery was in bad shape and I came very close to removing my child. Thanks to a change in management and some excellent appointments it has gone from strength to strength. I'm particularly impressed with the quality of care from the team in babies/cruisers where the staff seem to genuinely love their jobs and the children they look after. They go out of their way to reassure parents and provide a stimulating environment for babies. I think preschool could improve communication with parents. They need to shout about the good work they're doing!

We chose this nursery because of the facilities on offer, the friendliness of the staff, it's location, the activities organised for the children and the general feel of the place when we went to visit. We did have other options for childcare through family but we wanted our son to attend a nursery to aid his development and to socialise. We are extremely happy with our son's development. He was extremely shy at first and the staff were brilliant in supporting him and integrating him into the nursery. The staff are very friendly and are all clearly dedicated to the development of the children in their care. The facilities are always spotless and the amount of equipment and outdoor activities are extensive. There is also a wide-ranging healthy menu and meals are cooked on site. On the few occasions when our son has been a little under the weather, the staff were excellent in keeping us informed as to his wellbeing. I would not hesitate in recommending this nursery to others.

My daughter has been enjoying her time at this nursery since September, despite her ability to speak English. All of the staff have been extremely helpful to us, especially by providing us with daily notes on how our daughter has spent her time at the nursery, which has provided my wife and myself a lot of comfort. I understand it takes a lot of patience to cope with people coming from abroad and we appreciate very much, all the support which have been provided to my daughter and our family.

My daughter has attended Bright Horizons Sale since she was months old. All the rooms have been incredible for her development. She has found each room supportive and they have developed her individuality. They work well with parents and are flexible to support working parents. Also the extra events the nursery have run have been superb.

Choosing a nursery is tough! Who is ever good enough to look after your most precious possession?! I viewed several nurseries in Sale and eventually settled on Bright Horizons, a large purpose built building, light, clean and airy and most importantly amazing staff. My son has settled into the baby room really well, he eats well (takes more from the girls than he does with me!) and has good naps which tells me he's happy. I receive lots of pictures to show me what he's doing and I know he'll continue to flourish there. Highly recommended!

Our son has been here since he was one and loves it. The staff are lovely and they are very considerate of the needs of the children. For example, they knew that our son formed very close attachments to his key workers, so left him in a class a bit longer than normal to improve the transition for him.
The facilities are very good and modern and the management have kept working on improving and updating the spaces over the last three years.

Our son has attended since just after his 3rd birthday and has been through Babies and Toddlers and is now in the pre-school. He is happy, learning key skills and communicates well with peers and our contacts outside the nursery. The staff work collaboratively with you to maximise your child's potential and provide support with practical aspects of parenthood e.g. toilet training. This is a great nursery/ pre-school and I'd happily recommend it.

I am very happy with this nursery, in particular, the care that our son is shown by his key worker and room manager, both of whom are lovely. Communication is excellent and I feel confident that any signs of illness are picked up quickly. The facilities are clean and modern. The management staff are also very approachable and give me confidence. Overall I am very happy and would recommend this nursery. My toddler is in the cruisers room.

From the first day our son started at this nursery, he has thoroughly enjoyed his time there. The staff are genuinely welcoming, and when he wants to give them a hug at the start and end of the day, it shows just how much he likes them. Being a modern building it has all the necessary facilities, and the outside "garden" area means he gets plenty of fresh air and can get "messy" rather than being inside all the time. Please keep up the great work.

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and management at this nursery. My child moved from another nursery where I felt unhappy with so many elements. From day one, I felt a warm welcome at Bright Horizons and the staff wanted to go out of their way to help my little boy settle. They have shown compassion towards me as a first time mum experiencing leaving my baby behind for the first time. They have reassured me in the form of phone calls and pictures throughout the day via email. Furthermore, the catering staff are able to meet my son's complex dietary requirements with exciting and varied meals that he loves. In the room my son is in, the staff are loving towards my child as if he were their own, providing cuddles when he needs them as well as being skilled in distraction techniques to help him settle and forget Mum! I feel happy in the knowledge he is safe and well looked after as well as having fun and learning at the same time. I would recommend this nursery without any doubt.

I planned to send my second baby to the nursery that my first child went to. Having been for a session something didn't feel right, so I booked a settling session with Kids Unlimited. Everything felt just right, from the food menu, to the sleeping area, the indoor and outdoor space. My baby has been there for 2 months now, he happily waves me goodbye in the morning and has settled so well. The staff are lovely and communicate really well. There is always a wide range of different activities going on. I feel my baby has come on so much in the short time he's been there, which makes me feel less guilty about leaving him. I'm happy that he's happy in his nursery.

The nursery have always been very good at settling my son, whenever he is poorly they are so helpful and quick to put my mind at ease. Choosing a nursery was incredibly hard but after visiting and seeing the attention they gave their potential new child, I was sold. Nothing is too much trouble and my little one is now coming in and waving me off to work. Happy baby, happy mum and dad.

We have been extremely pleased with all the staff at nursery, they have been extremely supportive as our son has settled in to nursery. In particular his key worker has been patient and worked alongside him to help him feel at ease and gain confidence. It's hard seeing him upset when he's dropped off but we know he's well cared for and enjoys a wide range of activities while he's at nursery.

My son has attended this nursery for three years and in this time we have come to expect high standards of care and unlimited enthusiasm. Staff at this nursery are passionate about the children in their care and take the time to know them as individuals, tailoring activities to individual interests and providing a stimulating environment.
My son can't wait to get there in the morning and my food has never measured up at home! We have always felt reassured that not only was he being well looked after, he was also being nurtured and encouraged. He will leave nursery a confident child, well prepared to face the challenges of school.

From coming to the nursery for the first time we were made to feel very welcome. Our son has learnt many valuable life lessons whilst at the nursery and loves going. The handover morning and night is very professional and thorough. The facilities are excellent and modern. We would highly recommend this well managed family orientated Nursery.

We moved our daughter here from another nursery which we felt wasn't providing our daughter with enough stimulation. We are so glad we did. The staff are fantastic, friendly, welcoming and very professional. I have been impressed by the wide variety of activities the children do, obviously a lot of thought goes into them.
Our daughter settled in very quickly and I felt confident leaving her here with such great staff from the beginning. I have recommended this nursery to others whose children now attend and they are as pleased as I am.

Our son started in the cruisers room in April 2015. The staff were very friendly and caring and it really helped him adapt quickly.

The children have a wide range of activities and themes every week and parents can be really involved in their children's development. The rooms and outside area are very well thought out and have plenty of places for curious little hands to be busy.

The new manager has made some changes that have also improved the parents' experience and involvement with the nursery. Love the fruits and the fruity water at the entrance!

Our son absolutely loves going there and enjoys every minute with his carers and friends. We are very please in how he has developed in nursery and would highly recommend Bright Horizons Sale to anyone.

Our son has recently joined the baby room at Kidsunlimited Sale and the staff in the room have been amazing. They have made lots of really helpful suggestions for making him feel right at home and they have really helped him settle in well to going to nursery, and being away from Mum, for the first time.

Seeing him so happy in the mornings has really helped us as parents feel happy leaving him with the girls - who are really friendly and caring. There are different activities every day that are not only entertaining him, but also really helping in his development.

He LOVES the food and often has 2nds and 3rds. At the end of every day the staff make a real effort to not only explain the days activities, but to also share funny stories and sometimes photographs of the things our son got up to during the day. He always comes home happy and content with is great for us. For all these reasons we know we made the right choice sending him to Kidsunlimited Sale, and we'd recommend it to anyone.

My son started in babies last August and has just moved up to cruisers. Leaving my baby boy at nursery for the first time was always going to be hard, especially as he was only 9 months old at the time, but the staff were really reassuring, caring and empathetic. I couldn’t have asked for more.

He spends quite a lot of time at nursery because I work full time, but he seems to love being there and it makes me happy to know that he is having so much fun - even if it isn’t with me!

My son has always been sociable by nature but I believe that because he feels secure and safe at nursery his confidence is growing all the time. Thanks for helping us shape the lovely little boy he is turning into.

I am very pleased with the nursery. My child has bee there for over 2 years and I am extremely proud of my child's development. The staff are happy, enthusiastic fund and creative. The building is purpose built and therefore perfectly set out and equipped for a nursery. The garden is great and the variety of fresh food offered to the children is fantastic. I could not be happier with my child's nursery.

Whenever I picked my nephew up I was struck by how caring and friendly the staff of the cruiser room are. My nephew was always eager to get to nursery and made lots of friends during his time there. There are always lots of interesting, varied activities on the go and even trips to the local park. My nephew thrived in this setting and his language and self care skills improved dramatically. I cannot thank the staff enough for the care and attention they gave him and I know we were all sorry when his time to move on came.

My husband and I were very nervous about leaving our 11 month old son at a nursery. Up until this point he had been cared for by ourselves and his grandparents only. We were concerned about how he would adapt to the new situation, routine and environment. Kidsunlimited, Sale were fantastic, not only did they settle our little man very quickly into his new surrounding and routine. They were also extremely good at helping us, the parents adapt to his new way of life. The staff at Sale Kidsunlimited are so kind, friendly and caring of our boy and this is reflected in his stages of learning so far. The day our son started nursery a new member of staff also arrived into the baby room. She was introduced as our baby's key worker! She has formed a fantastic bond with our boy (its lovely to see how happy he is when interacting with his key worker) she is very easy to talk to about his development, any concerns we might have and also general everyday conversation. Not only has the key worker been dedicated to the welfare of our son but also the Baby and Cruiser team as a whole, they have had a positive impact on both our boy and us.
Choosing a nursery is one of the most difficult things to do as a parent. I am so pleased that we decided to send our treasure to Kidsunlimited, Sale. A super learning environment and such a delightful team of staff.

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Description:

The fantastic thing about being a nursery manager is that never are two days the same. With over 100 families coming through the doors each day there is so much variety.
My day can vary from one extreme to the other, you may find me typing away at the reception desk greeting families or alternatively running around in the garden chasing the Gruffalo with the toddlers or singing nursery rhymes to the babies.
I may greet a policeman at the door who is here to speak to the Pre-school children about keeping themselves safe or equally I may meet a new family looking to find the very best childcare for their precious child.
Every year without fail I meet Father Christmas who takes time away from his busy schedule to come and visit our children. I am also always invited to the children’s Christmas nativity performance which brings a tear to my eye and an overwhelming feeling of pride as the children grow and develop. Graduation is always bitter sweet too as our children are ready for that next step of going to school and sadly the time comes to say goodbye.
I spend a lot of time talking to families and trying to make their experience the very best it can be and I am constantly thinking on my feet of new and exciting ideas which keeps me motivated.
The team I work with are also inspirational and I am in awe of their enthusiasm and creativity when it comes to creating meaningful experiences for our children. One day the room can be covered in flour/paint/sand/water/gloop and the next day the children are rushing under the parachute happily participating in games like one big family. The team always leave at the end of the day with a smile on their face knowing they’ve had fun and made a difference to a child’s life.
My day is always fun and filled with happiness as our children leave full of stories about their day to share with their families. I am very lucky to work with such lovely families and the most inspirational childcare professionals. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
