  • 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.217 for Bright Horizons Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.217

    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.

    The 4.368 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Wandsworth Common Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 5 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). 5 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.368

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

This nursery is very welcoming and the good thing about when your child starts you (parent) are asked to write down things your child likes and names child likes to be called for familiarity and a smooth transition from being with parents to other children and adults they are not familiar with. They use the EYFS which is great. All round great nursery.

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.

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.

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.

Wandsworth Common Day Nursery has been a great place for my daughter- The Bright Horizons brand delivers across both the US and UK. The teachers really care about the children and are committed to their development and enrichment.
