Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.252 for Bright Horizons Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (26 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.252

  • 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 4.441 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 6 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.441

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

My daughter is very well looked after by the lovely nursery staff. They have all made the transition to nursery very easy with their friendly attitude and their caring nature. My daughter smiles when we arrive and leave so I know that she has a good day. My improvement areas would be in that the staff don't consistently deliver on following baby's routine with a few slip-ups in what was written in my notes not being followed. In addition, it would be good to receive more daily/weekly photos showing what she does in the day.

The manager is very helpful with my daughter starting nursery.
The nursery nurse has been there since my son attended and she is so nice and welcoming also.
She was my son's first key person and he loved seeing her. He moved up to toddlers where he had another key worker and he loved coming to the nursery to see her.
I love they have a two week settling in period and your concerns are listened to and acted upon.

Bright Horizons Wandsworth is a very warm and welcoming place.
I leave my son there confident the staff encourage him and develop his interests.
Since my son has attended this nursery he has come on so well - his interest in the world around him grows by each day.
I particularly like the form they give you at the end of each session - a review of the day.
I feel they give excellent care and attention to each child and I couldn't recommend it enough.

My son is looked after very well and I am very happy with the activities my son does every day. The only negative about the nursery is that the temperature is too hot. Even with a mobile air conditioning unit, my son has to attend with just a t-shirt on.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Bright Horizons Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 09 Nov 2016:

We really appreciate that you have taken time out to share your feedback, your opinion is very important to us. I am going to share your comments with the Nursery Manager and ask her to speak to you. We especially take any concerns regarding safeguarding extremely seriously. I would strongly encourage you to speak to us, so we can address your areas of concerns.

Since moving from toddlers room to preschool we feel that our child is less looked after both in terms of hygiene and learning. We are not sure if this is due to less communication from the staff or actually is less quality of the service.

Thank you very much for your review. We really value your feedback. Please, can I encourage you to share your comments with the nursery team. It's important to us that any areas of concern are addressed and you’re totally happy with the high level of care we provide.

Bright Horizons is a very good nursery, not only from a childcare point of view but also the early year education experience it provides for the children. Our daughter has been attending this nursery since 2014 and has come through all the age groups.
The teachers are all very committed and professional and very friendly, providing a warm and welcoming environment. They are also very good at communicating with parents.

My son has been at the nursery since he was 12 months old, and on the whole, his care has been good. He has a particularly good experience in the toddler room, with a really loving key care worker who ensured his social and educational progress.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Bright Horizons Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 09 Nov 2016:

Thank you for your feedback, I believe that the Nursery Manager has already reached out to you to have a full understanding why we didn't score highly in some of the areas. The nursery has has been rated an Outstanding by Ofsted (file:///C:/Users/30005767/Downloads/EY343093__10.PDF) and we see the safety and happiness of the children in our care as paramount in everything what we do.

My daughter thoroughly enjoys her 3 days with the manager and her team at Bright Horizons.
She is fully cared for, always has a smile and is full of energy and joy when we pick her up.
