Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.763 for Bright Little Stars Stanmore is calculated as follows: ( (119 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.763

  • 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 4.867 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Little Stars Stanmore is based on 13 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.867

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

Our son started attending Bright Little Stars Stanmore at the beginning of this year. The settling in period was difficult for both us and him but I cannot thank the nursery and staff enough for the support they gave in helping him feel comfortable and putting our mind at ease. From taking my daily calls to check in and for spending time at pick up to discuss his day in detail. He has settled in so well that somedays it’s hard to get him out the room. We have seen such a huge development in him he is happy and playful around other children and learning so many new things weekly. We have had a few ups and downs with him being unwell and currently struggling with him being an extremely fussy eater but both his key worker, room staff and management are supportive and willing to assist any way they can. We are so glad we have chosen this daycare and definitely believe it is one of the best.

I am so glad that I got my little one enrolled into Bright Little Stars Stanmore. I can clearly see the difference from his previous nursery. He is much happier and enjoys going to the nursery. I can see him learning so many new things every day. Also, it is so convenient as a location, being so close to the station. I will definitely recommend it to any parents asking for my opinion.

We are very happy with Bright Little Stars Stanmore. The staff in my son's room are very caring and pay close attention to children's needs. There is a wide range of extra-curriculum activities throughout the week. My son thoroughly enjoyed the activities and very quickly picked up new songs and words. The facilities are excellent, including nurserycam which allows parents to log in anywhere and look at their children's daily activities from time to time. Thanks to Bright Little Stars Stanmore, I can go to work every day feeling assured that my son will be well taken care of.

Having looked around at other nurseries, we found this nursery stood out for us as it was bright, airy, colourful, spacious and inviting. There are some neat little touches too, a webcam, a portal to check regular updates with photos of your child’s progress, which are also emailed.

The staff are nice and friendly. They also provide extracurricular activities for children eg, parties, heuristic play, French classes, sports and music. They have local days out and an in-house chef.

BLS Stanmore (Bright Little Stars) is a very good nursery. After looking at a few nurseries we decided to go ahead with BLS for my daughter.The staff here are very friendly, and it is very clean and organised, as well as they have an in-house cook, so I'm happy that my daughter gets fresh meals every day.

Outstanding - My son has come on leaps and bounds in terms of speech, sentences, understanding of the alphabet. I feel confident that he will be in great stead when joining primary education in Sept.

Staff at BLS Stanmore (Bright Little Stars) - Considerate, energetic, enthusiastic with a positive can-do attitude with results shown in the children’s exterior.

Excellent on-site chef - Variety with snack plentiful.

Cannot praise BLS enough.

Thank you.

I couldn't fault anything about Bright Little Stars.
