Reviews

9.3 Bright Swans Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.346)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Swans Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Swans Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 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 4.698 for Bright Swans Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (159 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 225 Ratings = 4.698

  • 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 4.648 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Swans Day Nursery is based on 7 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 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.648

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

My child was very well looked after by very friendly and competent staff. He was very happy to attend and always had lots of fun. My child has additional needs and he was always included in activities etc. and offered extra support as and when needed.

The staff at Bright Swans Day Nursery are all fantastic but for me, the staff who look after my little boy are at the top of my list because they have really encouraged him to become more confident and socialise with other children. When he first started, he didn't talk or play with any other children, but with their support, he is a new child. He talks non-stop and his motor skills are fantastic. I really can't thank the girls enough!!

My grandson has been coming to Bright Swans since 2015, he has speech problems and was very quiet in himself, the nursery has taught him so much, he never stops talking now and not quiet in himself he loves going every day. The staff are wonderful people very polite and they always take time with the children. He learns new things every day. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone, also they helped me with potty training.

I put my 9-month-old son into this nursery on my return to work. I have never even for one day had to worry about him going in. He has been happy and confident going in and has gone from strength to strength. I'm amazed at his development. The staff are lovely but professional and my son genuinely loves them. Great nursery and a huge weight off my mind.

Bright Swans is a lovely nursery. The staff are great and even though my son only attends a few days they seem to know him very well which is a good sign. My son seems happy and well cared for and that's all I can wish for from a nursery. Very pleased with it as he has settled in quickly and enjoys it.

Really friendly and helpful staff and a lovely atmosphere in the nursery. The nursery is a wonderful environment with excellent outdoor space. We have attended open days and "stay and plays" and this has been invaluable in helping our daughter to settle in.

I would pick up and drop my niece to this nursery and can honestly say that it felt good to know she's in safe hands. The standard is very good, she was always happy when I collected her and always spoke about the activities and her day. The nursery has had a very good impact on her development and social skills in her early years.

We were welcomed on arrival with a smile and someone came straight to us and gave us a tour. We were shown every room thoroughly and all our questions were answered by the lady who was showed us around. The lady knew what she was talking about which made me feel really comfortable and at ease.

My daughter settled here after a rocky start elsewhere. There is such a big difference within three weeks she happily would go to nursery (her last nursery she would not stop crying throughout the whole day so I had no choice but to move her). The staff are friendly and genuinely care for the children, my daughter has developed and has a keen interest in reading, and can write her name, dress herself and has helped in preparation for reception. I would highly recommend Bright Swans, best choice I ever made.

We signed up nearly a year ago at an open day, and have just started settling in sessions. We have been to stay and play sessions throughout the last year, meeting staff and getting to know the setting. The staff are so lovely and friendly, and the setting really is a "home from home". The garden is fabulous! a very big space with lots of activities, sand, mud, construction etc, looks really fun!

My son started at Bright Swans just after his first birthday. I was initially terrified at the thought of putting our son into childcare, and was dreading returning to work. I shouldn't have worried! All the staff at Bright Swans have done everything they can to make sure my family have been well looked after and cared for. From making our son smile everyday and telling us amusing stories of what he has been up to and the things he has learnt, to putting up with a (sometimes haha) over emotional mum, Bright Swans have always been there. The staff always have time to talk and feedback on our son's day; nothing ever seems too much trouble. And their garden is incredible!!!! We fell in love with their wooden tee-pee and mud kitchen from the first day we looked around! Our son absolutely loves it out there; outdoor play is something Bright Swans should pride themselves on. We are really looking forward to our son learning French when he turns 2 at the nursery's new French lessons for toddlers. My family definitely recommend this nursery!!

Impressed with the constant desire to improve and develop the offering they have as a day nursery. I think it is great they want to offer additional activities such as the sensory room and french lessons and I am sure they will introduce more things. All the staff are great and I really trust the Manager to ensure standards are kept high. We have just started our baby girl at the nursery, as well as our toddler, and the level of care seems to be very high, with staff who aren't even in the baby room telling me they checked in to see how she was doing, which is really lovely. They even know how to deal with over emotional mothers! Both our girls are really happy there with our eldest even getting upset when she couldn't go over Christmas.
