b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.167 for Bright Horizons Mansion House Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (2 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.167
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:
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.
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.
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 3.106 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Mansion House Nursery and Preschool is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.106

Review submitted from a Website Submission by K H (Mother of Child) on Friday 16 March 2018. Relates to March 2018.
Our daughter is incredibly happy at this nursery and preschool and has attended since January 2016. The staff take interest and concern in each child and tailor learning and play accordingly based on home activities as well as EYFS curriculum goals. Outdoor space is maximised and used to full potential come rain or shine.
She has made some wonderful friends in both the children and staff since being there and wishes to go back and visit the staff once she has left and started school. We are very happy with the nursery and staff.
