Reviews

9.4 Bright Horizons Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.361)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.361 for Bright Horizons Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.361

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 8 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 6.6 positive Reviews (33 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 6.6 Target Reached = 1

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

Dulwich Nursery is well run and my children have both developed into happy and sociable children in their care. Staff are attentive, friendly and caring. There is a wide range of activities and games throughout the day. A great mix between discipline (in a friendly and firm way) and caring by their key workers. Healthy meals also cooked on sight.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was almost one year old. Dulwich Nursery has always provided a fantastic service. She has always had the best care and attention I could ever have asked for. The staff are amazing, kind and thoughtful. She has learned so much in terms of sociability and standard of learning and is now ready for reception. She will miss everyone here. Brilliant.

The nursery staff is very friendly and my child is happy to come to the nursery. The resources are well maintained and are used appropriately to have a learning and development environment. The menu of food choice is lovely and my son gets all nutrients needed.
the garden is a good size although could be bigger. I hear there is going to be a refurbishment within the nursery and can't wait to see how it will be different.

I am very impressed by the nursery and the welcoming atmosphere. They have got brilliant staff which provide excellent care and commitment to their families. My daughter is in preschool room and she is so happy and really likes all the carers in the nursery. She has been really looked after by her key carer. She loves the cookery club and the growing programs are great. My daughter got preference as she can only eat HALAL food. (Halal Products) so the nursery is providing halal meals for her instead of giving her vegetarian. I really appreciate all the efforts made by the manager and the chef.

The manager is exceptional. The staff are warm and caring and I know my daughter will be in very good hands. Her key worker invests in development, recently helping me to potty train. While french lessons have recently been introduced, I would like a greater focus on structured and disciplined learning for the older children. The outside space is limited and it would be great for the children to have more outings. The food is varied, healthy and very good.

I found Bright Horizons warm and welcoming from the start. My 9/10 month old son had a bad experience with a child-minder, so it was very reassuring when he settled quickly (in a few days) of being at this nursery. The staff in the baby room were amazing, kind, playful and friendly. The managers were so helpful and professional at all times. Their door was always open if you had a question. Overall the nursery was excellent.

Kelsey Taberer

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2008

Description:

I began my Bright Horizon’s Journey in 2008 as Bank Staff after gaining my NVQ Level 3 in another nursery. Within a year of working at Bright Horizons I was given a full time job working in the Toddler Room where I gained my NVQ. I moved onto another nursery in London and was again working in the Toddler room in which I gained lots of experience by going out to lead a team of support staff at another nursery, this led onto me becoming a Room Leader within the Preschool Room for 6 months before I was given the opportunity to become a Maternity Cover Deputy Manager at Dulwich Nursery. I was working in the Baby Room as I was gaining my knowledge in the Deputy role, learning new challenges. A year later I became a cover Manager which has led onto a permanent role.
