Reviews

7.3 Bright Stars Nursery - Cheshunt has a Review Score of 7.3 (7.342)

The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Stars Nursery - Cheshunt 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Stars Nursery - Cheshunt in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.5 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.842 for Bright Stars Nursery - Cheshunt is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 2.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Stars Nursery - Cheshunt is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 8 Target Reached = 1 , then divided by 2 = 0.500

  • 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 is very friendly, there is always enough staff for the amount of children. They provide good food and the children's equipment is of a great standard. They do lots of activities too. It's great that they have a website and post on it what the children have done that day.

I've been very pleased with my daughter's development since she started at the nursery. I've been very anxious and unsure whether this is the right setting for my daughter but after a few weeks she settled in beautifully and became confident and willing to try new activities etc. The staff members in the starlings room have been brilliant in reassuring us parents but also giving our little girl as much reassurance and attention (and lots of cuddles) as she needed. I would highly recommend Little Stars at Cheshunt.

I truly believe Bright Stars Nursery is the best nursery in the area of Cheshunt. I have never had to complain about anything at all. My daughter has progressed and improved since going to Bright Stars - everything is perfect. The price might be a little too high but I guess that's normal for the service they provide to both parents and children.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was around 4 months old. She was always a smiley baby and continues to be in the nursery too. She's a very contented little girl and all the staff at the nursery are great with her. She is developing very well there. Couldn't be happier with the nursery, it's ticked all my boxes and gives peace of mind with the online area I can check throughout the day too, including pictures of her activities. The food they give her is great too and they have been very supportive of the weaning process. All in all brilliant!

I am very happy with Bright Stars Nursery. My child loves being there, which makes me feel so much happier leaving him in the hands of fantastic staff. My child also has a great bond with his key worker which is great and is learning a great deal of things whilst at Bright Stars Nursery.

This nursery is like home!
My daughter loves and enjoys her days at Bright Stars Nursery. Both dad and I know she is well cared for and has amazing staff around her.

I am truly sad that this is her last year here as everything about the nursery is just amazing!

I looked into other local nurseries and when I walked in here I knew this was the one for my little girl and a year on I still feel the same...

Knowing your baby is looked after in such a way gives you the comfort as a parent.

Thank you to all the staff for always having a smile on...

Bright Stars Nursery is a wonderful nursery and I feel happy and confident sending my daughter here 4 days a week.
The environment is a lovely one with lots of free space for the children and a lovely garden area for outdoor play. The activities provided are helping my daughter to grow and learn each day and staff are extremely friendly yet professional at the same time.
Would highly recommend!

My son has excelled since joining Bright Stars. The staff do their upmost to ensure the children are full engaged in learning centred around their individual interests. They are wonderfully creative in their approach to captivating and involving the children. Bright Stars is a nurturing environment where children are encouraged to be more independent and responsible for themselves as they move through the pre-school room. We fully trust all the staff and have nothing but praise for the nursery and its management.

My child started in August 2015 aged 11 months and I have always felt confident that he is in safe hands. The manager and deputy are extremely approachable and friendly. His key worker and room staff are wonderful. Overall found that the entire staff work well as a team and I really feel like the staff share the excitement of the different milestones that my child and others achieve. I am kept well informed with parents evening and newsletters that are informative with a personal touch. I also have daily reports of what he has eaten, slept and observations via a secure online portal. The facilities are beautiful inside and outdoors providing an enriched learning environment for my child. I definitely recommend the nursery.
