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 4.433 for Bright Horizons Southfields Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.433

  • 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 4.15 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Southfields Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.400

  • 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 has settled in very easily thanks to the great team at the nursery. They are very flexible and also really care about the child's interest.
They do great activities which really help the development of the children.

I have two very happy kids there! There are plenty of activities to keep them busy (Spanish, tennis, hartbeeps etc). Lots of painting, drawing and learning depending on their age. The staff are brilliant, they love the kids and really care!

Our daughter has settled very well at Teddies. The staff have been wonderfully supportive and our daughter is clearly very fond of them all. They do lots of fun activities with them, serve great food and the staff show the babies lots of affection. They also keep us parents well informed.

I have been entirely satisfied with my daughter's care at Teddies Southfields. From her start in the baby room to her current place in the toddler's room, the staff have been so caring, empathetic to the children's needs, and seem to do so much more than 'just' a job there - they really seem to care. My daughter is so happy going there. The staff, are always smiling and seem to enjoy the children. They make the most of the resources, and I love the Hartbeeps activities - as does my daughter. The managing team is great - very organised, professional, and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Teddies!
