Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.667 for Bright Star Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667

  • 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 3.063 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Star Day Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.063

Reviewer Connection to Bright Star Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child

I don't usually leave comments as I am a busy single parent of a very active son. My son goes to this nursery and he absolutely loves it. He started there at 6 months and as a single parent, the nursery has supported me so much with his growth and development. I am so pleased with my decision.

I was very concerned as to where I would find suitable childcare for him so I could return to work. He is very happy there and cared for. The rooms are big and the staff is lovely. I have visited many day nurseries before and after my son's birth, they are all different etc. So it's quite difficult at the beginning.

I am happy I have chosen this one and I'm looking forward to seeing my son in his new preschool uniform in September.
