Part of the Bright Horizons, Active Learning Fulham (London) nursery opened in 2007 and is a stunning purpose designed facility which occupies a lovely traditional building where great emphasis is placed upon big windows to maximise the feeling of light and space within the building, the aim to bring the outdoors in! Unusually in a London nursery, it has a large garden at the rear of which great use is made.

The nursery has a full complement of specialist studios, Performing Arts and Music (for drama, general dance, ballet, street dance, music, yoga), a fabulous fully equipped Art Studio, and Science and IT (with interactive whiteboards, individual computer terminals, pre school Science lab equipment, and more). For younger babies, they have their own special haven in the form of Active Senses.

With a dedicated team of specialist teachers in the studios who are supernumerary to all the wonderful nursery mentors, children are nurtured and looked after as unique and individual children, ensuring that they bring out the best in each and every one, and help them to discover and maximise the potential of their talents while also developing confidence in all areas.

Reviews

9.4 Active Learning Fulham (London) has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.357)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Active Learning Fulham (London) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Active Learning Fulham (London) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 11 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 4.801 for Active Learning Fulham (London) is calculated as follows: ( (129 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.801

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Active Learning Fulham (London) is based on 11 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 19.8 positive Reviews (99 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 19.8 Target = 0.556

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

My experience with this nursery has been amazing. The nursery has supported myself and my children, they have been very flexible as and when I needed them to be. Staff are always smiling and happy. The management team have been so accommodating to my needs as a working parent. I feel as a mother, it's been a great start to my children's life.

My son is currently at this nursery and I'm so impressed. Their care, welcome approach and love for both me and my son is wonderful. They are very flexible and approachable - special credit to the new manager (who I'm loving) and her team.

Active Learning is an amazing nursery with lots of space, bright rooms, a large and well equipped outdoor area and most of all very caring and committed staff. The nursery gives the children warmth, a great environment and support for learning. We have had children here from 3 months through to preschool and couldn't recommend the nursery more.

We have two boys at the nursery and they couldn't be happier. They get cared for wonderfully with genuine love and affection from the staff. The facilities are first class with lots of space for the children to run, play and explore. Highly recommended.

The nursery provided an excellent level of care in all aspects. I was very pleased with how happy my child was every morning to go there. My child has made great progress and I would definitely recommend it. Children are happy, thriving and learning every day. The staff are very professional and helpful.

My son started at Active Learning Fulham (London) when he was 1 year old and is now in pre school. The nursery has been absolutely excellent on all fronts during all his time there and still is. The facilities and outside space are unparalleled in the area. The staff have always been brilliant and very accommodating. It's also always easy to discuss my son's development and all sorts of issues with the teachers as well as the management. All in all very happy with our experience here and highly recommend the nursery!

My son started at Active Learning Fulham last summer after interviewing many nannies and visiting many others in the Fulham/Parson's Green area. Choosing Active Learning was the best childcare decision I have made. As the name suggest Active Learning takes pride in providing a stimulating, interesting, loving and caring environment for your little ones. They are flexible with my family needs. They developed an individual eating program to help my picky eater become a much better eater. He's now enjoying all his mealtimes thank you. Their organic menu and outdoor space is a great bonus. I highly recommend this nursery.

Our daughter has been here since aged 10 months and has thoroughly loved it. We chose it for the long hours and tolerance of being one minute late! (I work in the NHS and can't always get away on time), as well as the facilities. The staff have been lovely throughout and the variety of activities and spaces on offer in inner London has been fantastic. The admin side has been boosted by joining the Bright Horizons Group. Communication with parents is mostly at drop off and pick up although email updates are sent every so often. Communication is the one thing that could be better e.g. planning ahead for events and dates etc. Overall though, and importantly with the quality of childcare and education, very pleased.
