This Review Score of 9.310 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.667 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.643 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a nursery is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.310 for Teddies Nurseries Bristol is based on 18 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the nursery is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.667 for Teddies Nurseries Bristol is calculated as follows: ( (150 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.667

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a nursery. 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 care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a nursery requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

      The Quantity Score of 4.643 for Teddies Nurseries Bristol is calculated as follows:

      1. 18 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 18 Positive Reviews = 1.800 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (18 Positive Reviews ÷ 56 Children) x 2 = 0.643

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

Fantastic nursery. Very good communication with parents. Good outdoor space and plenty of outdoor time. Staff are very committed and attentive. Staff really seem to "know" the children. Our child is always happy to go to nursery and reports very positively.

I have a son at Teddies and a daughter who was at the nursery and now goes to school. Both are/were very happy and well looked-after there, and we in turn are very happy that they're there. I'm impressed at the careful attention that goes into helping the children to develop, at the friendly and happy atmosphere at the nursery, and at the good communication among the staff and between the staff and families. It is also very good that there's a nice big space for the children to play outside, which gets a lot of use.

My daughter has been attending Teddies Bristol since she was 11 months old. I have always felt completely safe and happy to leave her in the good care of the staff. The genuine warmth and care in the Baby Care room is outstanding and it's exactly what a parent wants when they are away from their child for the first time. The Little Learners room with their enthusiastic and dedicated staff is great for exploring different activities and getting messy - stuff you will not quickly do at home! And PreSchool is an excellent preparation for school, where the children start doing gentle learning through play and are given plenty of room to forge friendships.
Teddies is very good at organising 'special' activities, such as Forest School, Stay & Play days and special celebrations such as Christmas Parties.
My daughter asks me "can I go to Teddies now please mummy?", what more do you want to hear as a parent?

My 18month old son has been attending the baby room at Teddies for 6 months now. I feel really pleased with the level of care and attention my baby receives. He has a key carer that looks after him and this relationship is so important to him feeling secure and comfortable. I have built a great relationship with his key carer and feel confident that his needs are met whilst at Teddies. The feedback I receive at the end of the day is great and you get a sheet to take home that details what they have eaten and how they have slept etc. Although the baby room has recently gone through a few staff changes which can be u settling for the babies they have been effective in minimising these impacts. Also before my son joined I attended a few settling in sessions with him so I could see first hand how the staff interact with the babies and this gave me a lot of confidence in them. The setting of the nursery is great, away from major roads and noise and plenty of outside space.

Teddies is a great open & honest nursery. It's really important that I know if my child hasn't had a great day or know that they've only eaten a little bit of dinner. The staff really care about the kids and ensure they have fun. My daughter took a while to settle in but now she absolutely loves it. I love the fact she comes home muddy or covered in body paint. They are always outside and everyday there are new activities. She has gained so much confidence & has created friends. She come homes singing songs, counting, doing makaton which indicates that's she's learning lots too. I would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

Our daughter has been in the nursery since she was 11 months old and now she is 3 1/2 And to be honest I could not fault it. When we arrived at babycare we were welcomed with open arms and the staff and management were very helpful and supportive. My daughter had lots of support and thrived in her first year at teddies. When she moved to the little learners room she gained loads of confidence and explored so much. As a family we were also supported by the nursery and there were plenty of opportunities to meet other families. Now in pre school she is a confident thriving individual and we are very happy with the care and support she receives along with the discipline and range of extra curricular activities, we know she is more than ready for school.

My daughter has been attending Teddies Nursery from 10 months and is now 3 years old and I cannot believe how far she has come, she absolutely loves all the staff and is very happy at Teddies, my other daughter is also due to start in the next few months and will be 10 months also when starting, I won't be as nervous this time round as I know how great the babycare staff are. I highly recommend Teddies Nursery as I know how stressful and worrying going back to work can be, but leaving my children in there capable hands has made life so much easier and knowing how much my daughter enjoys it and is happy Is fantastic! :)

Teddies is a fantastic nursery and preschool, and my two have thrived there, enjoying each days activities, growing in confidence, learning and making new friends. The nursery staff are very professional, supportive and clearly caring of each individual child. I particularly like all the special activities they do, from deer feeding to Christmas plays, stretch & grow classes to forest school! I would definitely recommend it to anyone. It's a very happy place!

My little boy started this nursery when he was just 9 months old (he is now 1). From the settling in days to his first week there we have always been made to feel welcome. He has a great relationship with all the staff in the baby room and he is very happy there. It has been lovely to pick him up on the evening and seeing him playing happily. Would really recommend this nursery, we only looked at one other but after visiting here there was nowhere else I wanted him to go.

I think Teddies is a great nursery. My son attended from 2 years old until he just started school this year and I strongly believe he was prepared well for the transition to big school. My daughter is still there and I am still very pleased with the level of care, attention and communication I get from staff members. One of my favourite things about first visiting Teddies was how it felt like it was in the countryside and I really liked the outside space. Compared to a lot of nurseries it is pretty special as it isn't in a built up area where naturally space is of a premium. In the summer the older children spread out onto the field which I love! Both my children have only ever done the equivalent of 2 days a week there but they seem very happy and have gained good confidence and social skills. Will always have a special place in my heart for Teddies as my kids move on to pastures new and would thoroughly recommend to other parents.

Teddies is a fantastic nursery. My daughter started here when she turned 1 years old and has just left to go to school and my son has also been here since he turned 1 and will stay until he goes to school in 2 years. The staff are very caring and build fantastic relationships with the children. The variety of activities offered is great and helps with all stages of their development. Communication from the staff in the rooms and management is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

Thank you very much for your positive review.

Teddies is a fantastic nursery - my daughter started when she was 1 year and has just left to go to school and my son is currently there. They provide an open, supportive, friendly and inclusive environment for the children and parents. I've been really happy with the quality of care and the way they help the children to develop, learn and grow.

By giving me/us your feedback, you are helping us to understand what we do well.

Our family has used Teddies for fours years since my daughter was 9 months old and my son still attends. We have always been impressed by the genuine warmth and care our children receive and the positive attention their carers give them. The creative range of activities that are provided for the children, particularly in the baby and toddler rooms, is excellent. The staff work very hard and are worth their weight in gold! There is not a particularly high turnover of staff like some nurseries so the children build good relationships with their carers, and most importantly, have fun! The outside space is well used, and the older children use the field in the summer too. Communication from management is efficient and friendly. My children have thrived there and their needs were well met in each room. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for your great feedback. We really appreciate it.

Such a lovely nursery - exciting to hear it is due a re-furb inside and out soon! Staff are fabulous and so caring and knowledgeable. My child loves attending and seeing her friends. Her needs and her own development are adhered to so personally - she is learning so much just from attending Teddies. It really has made my decision to return to work the right one for our family. Thank you!

Thank you for your warm words and positive feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and compliment on our nursery.

We've been very happy with the nursery; our son settled very quickly and it's great to see how much more confident he's become as a result.

The staff are fantastic and build great relationships with the children.

The setting is lovely with plenty of outside space and every day is packed full of variety for them.
