The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Crawley 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Crawley Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.778 for Bright Horizons Crawley Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 4.489 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Crawley Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 9 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 18.4 positive Reviews (92 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 18.4 Target = 0.489

  • 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 loves the nursery. I was nervous about how he would settle but the staff were fantastic with him and at easing my anxiety. All the staff are really accommodating and caring. The outdoor facilities are fantastic and it's great the little ones spend so much time outdoors exploring. The variety of food is also very good.

The care at this nursery is second to none. Facilities are amazing but most importantly the staff who work there are approachable, caring and look after my daughter so well. She loves her time there and all the staff too. The acting manager is brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. On the odd occasion that my daughter has left her beloved teddy there one of the staff comes to our home and hand delivers him! We just wish the acting manager could become the permanent manager.

Our 3-year son attends the preschool and has a great time! We've been particularly impressed by the support we've received with toilet training and his cooking lessons. He loves it and settled in really well. The staff to children ratio is excellent. Highly recommend.

My son has moved to this nursery in March 2017 and we couldn't be happier with the service. The staff are very caring, attentive and of course great at developing him. He could not be happier. He always talks about wanting to take his key worker and others home to play. He just loves it there and that is all that counts.

The garden/outside space is amazing as is the fact that they spend their days outside playing and exploring.

We are very pleased with Bright Horizon! Our little lady just loves going! The staff is amazing. My child has grown and developed so much in the last few months and it's all because they have got to know her and are so tuned into her needs.

Our 11-month old son started at the Crawley Maidenbower Day Nursery a few weeks ago. The team have made him feel so welcome and he has settled-in better than we could have ever have hoped. The nursery is heads and shoulders above any other that we visited in the area in terms of facilities/cleanliness and the level of care and attention to his individual needs/dietary requirements has been fantastic!
