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 4.884 for Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery and Out of School Hours Clubs, Burnage is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.884

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.

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

Reviewer Connection to Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery and Out of School Hours Clubs, Burnage

My child has been at this nursery for 8 months now and was very clingy to myself, now he has changed into a different little boy. He has a great relationship with all the staff here. When he first started he wouldn't take his coat off at all. Now its bye Mum as soon as he gets in. All the staff are very good, cant fault them.
I am very happy and content dropping my child off knowing he is absolutely fine all day while I am at work. Definitely recommend to other parents.

My 16 month old is extremely happy and settled at Brighter Beginnings Day Nursery Burnage. The standard of care she receives from the staff is excellent. They are warm and friendly and give you the confidence you need to leave your child in someone else's care. Each child has a key worker and all staff are first aid trained.
The rooms are clean and comfortable with lots of space for the children to play, but not too big to feel lost in. The snowflake room is for under 2's and has a little room for nap time that is cosy and warm with soft lighting.
The building is safe and secure whilst still providing lots of outside space for the children to explore.
The manager is great and has created a fun and creative place for a child to learn and grow.
I would certainly recommend Brighter Beginnings Burnage to anyone looking for an affordable and quality child care provider.

A fantastic nursery with lovely staff. All staff develop a personal connection with your child. My child has really come on socially since going to brighter beginnings and loves going every day. He has never cried when being left. A well-balanced diet of meals is provided and there are lots of activities to both inside and outside the nursery.

My son has been with this nursery since mid-2015 (when it was run by another company). There is a good team of staff, and since Brighter Beginnings have taken over, there have been even more improvements to security and standard procedures. I've been very happy with the nursery. The prices are reasonable. I would be happy to recommend it to others.

This is our daughter's first month at the nursery and she's found settling in quite difficult. The staff have worked really hard, however, making her comfortable and happy and she's now well settled and enjoying her days there.
So far we couldn't be happier that we've chosen this nursery.

My little boy has been going to brighter beginnings in Burnage for a while now and I couldn't be happier. He loves all the staff and is very settled and has a great relationship with his key workers. I myself love the staff and they make me feel at ease and glad he is being cared for to the standards he would at home like a little family. The nursery is lovely and I couldn't be happier leaving my little boy there and I will be sad for when he leaves to big school as he loves it himself. He has come on so much with learning and speaking the teaching through play and other mediums is great.

The staff at Brighter Beginnings are very caring and professional. My Daughter looks forward to going to Nursery. They have really good facilities, and they encourage each child as an individual. My Daughter has really progressed with Brighter Beginnings and I can't thank them enough for the care they give her whilst I am at work. I really feel she is in safe hands.

I highly recommend Brighter Beginnings in Burnage. The staff are incredibly kind and wonderful with all the children. As a first time mum, I was really nervous about sending my daughter to nursery but everyone at Brighter Beginnings made me and my daughter feel so welcome. The atmosphere is full of fun and warmth and the facilities for the children are fab. It felt like a home from home and the staff go out of their way to involve parents in all aspects of their children's care as well as lots of updates re the fun the children are experiencing throughout the day.

I visited a number of nurseries in the area and this was by far the best nursery for me and my daughter.
