  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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.

    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 4.389 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Little Stars Harrow 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.389

I must admit that since my son has started the nursery in June I've noticed a GREAT change in him. He is more sociable and eats a lot more variety of food also. Every time I drop him off to nursery he is so excited so I never feel nervous or regretful about sending him to a nursery at such a young age. The staff are so welcoming and understanding, I feel relaxed.

Bright Little Stars cares a lot for kids wellbeing and is full of fun and activities ... has well trained and friendly staff. The new building is very colourful and has a nice setup for the young ones to learn and grow. My little one simply enjoys the atmosphere therein and at times she doesn't even want to come back home, which in true sense talks about the comfort, fun, learning etc she is going through.

My son is going to this nursery. We tried a couple of other nurseries before but he was not able to settle in. He has settled very nicely in this nursery. They have very enhancing learning atmosphere and well-trained staff.

The staff are nice and very friendly. They provide regular updates about child’s progress. Even my unfriendly little one has developed social and language skills pretty fast. My little one just loves their garden which has loads of different areas to play around like music wall, mud area and loads more. They offer several extracurricular activities for kids like baking muffins and Spanish classes and they’ve loads of toys and big space for kids to play around and learn, they can never get bored of.

From the day we started the nursery I loved it all, they are so supportive of every child's needs. The staff is very welcoming and thoughtful they organize things to be easy for both parents and kids (such as nappies and wipes being brought in packs in advance, list of children's clothes etc.)

My daughter is more than happy there, I loved the brand new building, everything is nice and clean (not like everywhere), children always have cuddles and hugs, the members of staff carry little ones for a comfort and they are never lazy or tired. I couldn't recommend it enough, every session is something we are looking forward to thanks to caring members of staff and the overall atmosphere.

I have seen most of the nurseries close to central Harrow but Bright Little Stars is the one that I felt comfortable to leave my 19 months old baby. As soon as he started he felt happy and enjoyed his time there. The staff managed to settle him very quickly and every morning he leaves home with a big smile on his face on his way to the nursery. The nursery have a big sunny garden.
