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 4.786 for Burgess Hill Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (67 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.786

  • 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 4.486 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Burgess Hill Nursery 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.486

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

We could not rate Burgess Hill Nursery more highly. Our son has been there for 10 months now and has had a wonderful time there as well as learning so much along the way. We have two older children who went to other nurseries in the area and looking back, we really wish we had known about Burgess Hill nursery for them too! The nursery itself is spacious and light and the outdoor area is very well equipped too. The nursery children also go on regular walks around the grounds of Burgess Hill Girls which our son always really enjoys. The staff could not be friendlier and more helpful, and we feel they have the balance of structured learning and free play just right. A big thumbs up from us.

I could not be happier with the preschool. The staff are consistent, caring and focused on providing children with the best possible learning environment. My daughter talks of wonderful experiences and we have seen her progress with her writing, numbers and knowledge. I love the creative approach the preschool uses to help children learn including their social and emotional development. My daughter loves her preschool and tells us it’s lots of fun. I will be sad when it’s her time to leave, but confident she’ll be ready for the next stage in her education.

Burgess Hill Nursery has been a fantastic nursery, not only for my son but for our family. They have offered us tremendous help and support in all aspects of ours sons care and have helped and advised us as a family in getting our son addition support. Because of the nurseries help and guidance our son will begin school in September 2018 with additional help and a care plan. Nursery continue to help and support our son in all aspects and have certainly gone the extra mile. They continue to come up with new ways to help our son learn and develop that suit him and his situation. They offer our son a warm and inviting environment where he feels safe and secure. Our son enjoys his time at nursery and has built many very special bonds with the staff there.T he staff continue to work with us and our son to help him develop and always have the time to talk things through with us. Management have also been very involved with our son and helped out in many ways and offered a lot of support.

Burgess Hill Nursery (BHG) is a very well run Nursery that offers a weekly update to parents on what the children have been doing and will be doing on a weekly basis, which is great. The school Head is very hands on and clearly, leads well, which is reflected in the outstanding school staff who take very good care of the children who always come home having learned something new every day. A well thought out curriculum with some exciting themes that are engaging for parents too!

A good atmosphere with a feel-good factor and staff with a sunshine smile even on the gloomiest Monday morning.

I highly recommend Burgess Hill Nursery.
