Reviews

9.2 Bright Horizons Bank Street Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.192)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Bank Street 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Bank Street 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 9 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 4.374 for Bright Horizons Bank Street Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.374

  • 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 4.818 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Bank Street Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 9 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.818

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

I have used Bank Street nursery as back up care and had a wonderful experience. From the time we arranged the care to the moment I picked up my little one, everyone was both professional and kind.

The nursery is conveniently located, facilities are excellent, it has natural light and even though the place is not that big, there is room enough for the children to have a good day. I felt that my baby could not be in better place for the day and I will definitely use them again if my normal care arrangements are unavailable.

Many thanks to the nursery especially to the nursery nurse for looking after my baby girl.

The nursery is really overwhelming. We really liked the nursery, and I am willing to put her back to nursery around December 2017. Very nice nursery. The staff, manager and everyone is so nice. I really loved it. Highly recommended.

The staff are very supportive to settle my 3-year-old boy in the new environment. Although his first language isn't English, he can still make new friends in a short time. Although space is limited, they will take the kids to the outdoor park in good weather and to another day nursery with a larger indoor playground.

This is the favourite part for my boy. The happiness of the child is of utmost importance. Now he can walk to his classroom alone without crying, give his teacher a big hug and wave goodbye when I pick him up. The school is very much based on the principles of independence.

Lovely nursery based in a very convenient location in Canary Wharf. My daughter has attended here initially 3 days a week, increasing to 5 this year, since she was 5 months old. Rooms are separated based on age, but breakfast is taken together and there is a real family feel to the nursery.
Whilst there is no dedicated outdoor space, the nursery ensure that each child goes out for a walk each day, and this nursery benefits from being able to use the wider Bright Horizons nursery facilities within Canary Wharf including a sensory room and soft play. The carers all clearly love working with children and are friendly and experienced.

Really pleased with the current management at Bright Horizons Bank Street. The staff have been amazing in ensuring parents feel reassured their kids are in good hands. Thank you for your constant support in ensuring our son is well taken care of and more importantly, the parents are also taken care of.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for 2 years and the staff are lovely and caring to all of the children that attend.

We are pleased with the range of indoor activities that the children can take part in but disappointed to now find out that they do not have the opportunity to part take in outdoor activities like they used to. This seems to impact the older children in pre-school who I feel would benefit greatly from some outdoor time each day.

The day-care teachers in pre-school are really caring. They know each child and treat them based on individual personality. They pay attention to each child's learning, playing and eating habits. They know a child well to sense a mood change or attitude shift. One cannot fake the care and concern that these teachers exhibit about each and every child in the classroom. I will miss everyone when my daughter goes off to school but will never forget how you have made my child's formative years the best memory a child can have.

We've had our son attend this nursery for the past 2 months. The overall experience has been very good. The drawbacks that I can think of, though, are price and lack of open, green spaces. Within those constraints, they do an excellent job.
