Reviews

9.8 Brabyns Preparatory School has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.774)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Brabyns Preparatory School 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brabyns Preparatory School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 6 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 4.806 for Brabyns Preparatory School is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.806

  • 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 4.968 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brabyns Preparatory School is based on 6 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 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 6.2 Target = 0.968

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

I would thoroughly recommend this early years nursery to anybody who would like their child to be extremely welcomed into their inclusive and caring family environment. The structure of the school day keeps my child interested and tested with enthusiasm and enjoyment as an added bonus. The manners of the children at this school are impeccable and I can see these being transferred to my 3-year old through role modelling from others. The teaching staff are wonderful and knowledgeable and I feel confident in their abilities to be able to sensitively teach and nurture the young ones in the class. My only concern is that I did not start her here earlier!

Our son started with Brabyns almost 2 years ago. The difference they made immediately was massive, and now he is unrecognisable.
The school made such an impact on us as a family our second son is going to start in September.

Absolutely fabulous, caring environment, with a strong staffing team and very good levels of communication with parents.
Brabyns, given it's setting, does not benefit from a great deal of on-site facilities, but they make up for this with connections with local clubs and centres and they are very active in taking the children to benefit from these.
My son has gone from strength to strength whilst in this setting.

My daughter is the youngest of three, the other two being much older, so I wanted a real family feel to her environment where she would make lasting relationships with other children her age. Brabyns offers small class sizes and lots of different activities. The children are so polite and everyone knows everyone's name; just the environment I wanted.

Brabyns is a wonderful place for children to flourish and to learn in a friendly and happy environment. My daughter is always so excited to go to nursery and loves how she is challenged in a way that is fun but that allows her to learn and grow. The Brabyns ethos is fabulous and we really do feel part of a very special family.

A wonderful school and an amazing nursery environment. The teaching is fantastic and the children get fully involved with school life with dedicated music, drama, Spanish, dance and PE lessons. I can't recommend it highly enough and wish I'd found it sooner.
