Reviews

9.5 Bright Horizons Lee Park Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.462)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Lee Park 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Lee Park Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 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 4.629 for Bright Horizons Lee Park Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (65 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.629

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Lee Park 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.833

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

We are new in London but as a mother of three kids, I have seen enough kindergartens in my life to say it's an excellent place to leave your child in.

Staff are amazing, they give you (parent) and each child personal treatment. Very kind, warm and care about the well-being and safety of the children.

Seem to be professional staff. The management team are very professional as well and always taking care and calling you while your child stays at home just to make sure everything is OK!

I feel very secure to leave my daughter (2.9 years) even though she is not speaking English - so that means a lot. Well done!

We have had a very positive experience using this nursery. Both my children attend. Staff are great and take great time and care when making the children settle in. Both my children enjoy attending. There always seem to be fun activities and we always get a good handover. I would definitely recommend the nursery.

My son really enjoys attending nursery, in particular he loves French classes, singing and the opportunity to play outside whenever he wants. We find all the staff very friendly, caring and professional. We are really happy with all aspects of the nursery/pre-school.

My overall experience has been good. My son just joined Lee Park Nursery. So far I'm very pleased and satisfied with the way my son's programme has been done. All activities are well planned, the emails that we receive weekly is also reassuring. My son's key worker is also excellent with my son. So at the moment, I'm very pleased with everything.

Lee Park Nursery and Preschool staff are very welcoming, caring and helpful. My daughter started in the preschool room in September and she really enjoys it. I know she is bonding with both staff and children and making some lovely relationships. I would recommend this nursery to people.

My son loves attending Lee Park Nursery. He runs off in the morning to find his friends (and his breakfast) and is usually pottering around 'helping' the staff when I collect him. The staff are fantastic with him - very caring and patient. He is always learning new things and showing us what he can do at home. He has also gained a lot of confidence whilst at the nursery.

Both of my children have attended Lee Park over the last 4 and a half years. This nursery feels like part of my family. The staff are lovely, attentive and caring as well as being professional. My children have come along in leaps and bounds, from babes to pre-school. I would 100% recommend Lee Park to anyone! Thank you for everything.

Quality of care is excellent. The focus of the staff on the children in their care is outstanding and they always have time to talk even at busy times. Our son loves the place walking in of his own accord and never looking back to mum or dad on drop off....this says it all!

The key message is that my son is very happy going to nursery and that is the main thing. He seems to have a varied range of activities and seems to learn while he is there, The site itself is in a good location and there is a reasonable size area (for London) outside for the kids to play when the weather permits.

My only suggestion would be for improved communications with parents as it can be a little unclear but that is a minor issue compared to the kids being happy with where they are.

I have a 1-year-old who has been attending the nursery from the age of 6 months. He is very happy there. The staff take the time to really get to know the children. All the staff are very friendly and approachable. There is good consistency of staff so that the children get familiar with them. On days when my son is at the nursery I feel confident that he is being cared for. There seem to be a lot of different activities to keep the children entertained throughout the day. The staff make extra effort when the child is unwell or unhappy or for special occasions such as birthdays. This is one of the more expensive nurseries in the area but I believe that it is worth the extra money. The nursery provides everything including nappies, milk, bottles etc.

All the staff at Lee Park are very pleasant, supportive and encouraging. My child has had an amazing 3+ years at Lee Park from baby room to preschool graduation. I am very happy with my child's progress and transitional support into school.

My daughter was at Lee Park only for a short time. However, I was very impressed how the girls there welcomed her and got her settled into her daily routine very quickly. She continued to thrive and learnt a great deal through her key worker, who was excellent. The staff here are fantastic, kind, caring and fun. My only negative is that the premises could do with being a bit bigger, so more space for the kids to run around.

My son started settling in sessions at the nursery in March 2016. The nursery offers a month of settling in and were flexible on dates and length of sessions which was helpful. Other nurseries only appear to offer a week so the extra time was helped to ensure my son feels comfortable and happy in the nursery before starting full time. The nursery manager and all the staff are very friendly and professional which helps put your mind at ease when leaving your child. My son is now attending full time and seems settled and content. He comes home happy and smiling which has to be a good sign.

I would highly recommend Lee Park Nursery and Preschool. My daughter has been going since 20115, she started her nursery from the baby room. She was happy to be here, all key workers and staff are lovely, friendly and very helpful. They helped her to adapt to this new environment in a short time. She is now in the toddler room, having a couple of very good friends. She had learnt painting, colours and numbers etc. My little princess would love to tell me what happened in the nursery and always happy to go to nursery.

My son has been with Lee Park Nursery since September 2015 and we couldn't be happier with the nursery & staff.
The staff are outstanding & have made not just our son welcome but myself & my husband happy to leave him with someone outside of family (as our only child it is not an easy thing to do) our son has a wonderful relationship with his key worker, I cannot praise her enough on all she has done for our son, it is very reassuring to see the wonderful bond that they have with each other and know that he is in safe hands. His key worker & the management have also offered help & support To myself & husband on our journey to to become adoptive parents and have gotten lots of resources to help our son adjust in his role as a big brother & have allowed him to spend some time in the baby room. The services that Lee Park offer are outstanding our son is happy & content as a parent that is lovely to see, he always asks is it his day to go to "big school" and hates missing nursery when it's half term.

My only child has attended Lee Park full time since she was 8/9 months old. She has always been extremely happy an nursery, she looks forward to attending and regularly talks about the staff and children. The staff are very caring and clearly take a genuine interest in all of the children in their care. I think that she has really benefited from being in rooms with children of different ages. The staff are very encouraging and are keen to share anecdotes about the children big or small in the morning or the end of the day which is very comforting for a working in parent. The nursery space is great in terms of size and the recent renovations to the garden are really lovely. The pre-school children are very lucky to have access to outside space all of the time. I will be very happy for my child to attend until she goes to school.
