Reviews

9.3 Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.294)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 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 4.58 for Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.58

  • 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 4.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.714

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

Bright Horizons Chelsea is a great place where my children have been staying for quite a long time now and they are developing happily and have learnt a lot.
They are providing a good service and listening to parents feedback.

I really enjoy taking my son to the Chelsea nursery. My son has only been here for 2 months and I can see loads of changes in all good ways. He has become more grown up and independent. I will strongly recommend it to all parents. The people here are very nice and caring. I feel very grateful for all the work they do to help my son.

I've got two kids, my son is 5 years old and my daughter is 2 years old. My son attended this nursery since he was 10 months until he was nearly 4 and my daughter started at 12 months and is still attending. Both were extremely happy attending this nursery and the communication with the staff has been always outstanding. Very happy and proud of having my kids in this nursery.

I am generally very happy with the nursery. For Central London, it has one of the best outside spaces and facilities. Staff are well trained and good with the children. Unfortunately, the caretakers change a fair bit which is not ideal.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Bright Horizons Chelsea Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 04 Apr 2017:

We really appreciate that you have taken time out to share your feedback, your opinion is very important to us. Our menus were carefully planned with professional nutritionists, giving children many opportunities to experience different types of food. We want the children in our care to learn from different tastes, smells and textures the love for food and to develop healthy eating habits and we were very proud to receive an approval by the Children’s Food Trust. If you have any concerns with regards to our menus, I would strongly encourage you to speak to our team so any areas of concern can be discussed and addressed.

We are very happy with this nursery. The staff are so nice with the children, they do a lot of activities (inside and outside) and always take care of the little ones.

They give you the feedback every day about all that happens with your child: activities, food, time of nap... and they have an amazing huge outside space to play.

The staff are without exception caring, helpful and professional. The nursery is well run and organised overall.

The days are organised with just enough structure to help development and keep the children interested without preventing more playful activities.

The environment created by the staff has encouraged my son to be more confident and sociable than when he first started. He frequently mentions exchanges with the staff in terms of recently learned concepts like 'x said we do not run inside, we walk' and 'x said it is good to share the bicycle with friends'.  He frequently explains to us the rules of pre-school like 'at naptime we do not get up until the lights are turned on'.  It has been very helpful for us to be able to build on these concepts/learnings at home.

My child is very happy at the nursery and she is well looked after. The children learn a lot about ART - talking about Van Gough and Pointillism! They also have their own parliament within the nursery.

I have had two children in this nursery. My first one is now year 1 at school and the second one is currently in pre-school at this nursery. Both children have been very happy here. We have not experienced any problems, having said that the management and style of the nursery have improved dramatically and positively in the last 5 years. The management team and the teaching staff are attentive, polite and kind.
