The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons West Dulwich 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons West Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 14 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 4.626 for Bright Horizons West Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (57 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.626

  • 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 4.921 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons West Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 14 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 15.2 positive Reviews (76 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 15.2 Target = 0.921

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

The staff in the baby room are very lovely with very good people skills. My son seems to love it at Bright Horizons West Dulwich Day Nursery and Preschool, its a shame he has to move as we are relocating.

I think this nursery has some very good and pleasant people working here!

We have had such a great and positive experience at the nursery. Initially, I had a lot of anxiety as I have never left my son with anyone else apart from my family. However, the welcoming atmosphere at the nursery enhance my trust and I feel safe knowing that from the first time onwards, the approach has been great. My son has now become more confident and has developed his communication skills. He always looks happy and looks forward to attending nursery.

As most parents probably are I was very anxious about leaving my son in childcare for the first time. I visited a number of nurseries, however, Bright Horizons West Dulwich stood out from the rest. From the day I visited the nursery to my son's 1st day, everyone has been warm and friendly. I find the staff willing to listen and very attentive to the child's wants and needs. I've never had any concerns about leaving my child in their care. The structure and routines are of a high standard. Staff are friendly and approachable.

Prior to our daughter starting nursery we used a childminder. Both myself and my husband were extremely dissatisfied with them and moved our daughter to Bright Horizons. The change we saw in our daughter was astonishing. She is absolutely thriving and she clearly absolutely adores the staff. We love getting her daily reports and hearing all about the fun she's had, the gorgeous meals she's served and all the progress she's making with communication and spatial ability. On top of this, I have a hearing loss and the key workers ensure that they speak clearly for me so I have full access to my daughter's daily adventures.

We really appreciate the support we received from the nursery management in helping us with our child's needs which changed from 2 -3 days after four months. Nursery assistants have been really kind in responding to our worried in regards to our child settling in. Our little girl is now really happy and Teddies West Dulwich have formed a strong relationship with the staff, management and children. She grows confident in an area where safeguarding measures are well enforced and development through play and other activities.
Both us and other parents are really pleased with Teddies Nursery West Dulwich.

Our daughter loves her days at Teddies.
She has made lots of lovely friends and enjoys all of the activities that she fills her days with, especially time in the lovely garden.
Staff are dedicated, caring and we are confident that they are always doing their best for our daughter, from hugs when she needs them to fulfilling the requirements of the EYFS curriculum.

Our experience here has been amazing. The staff and the environment create the best setting to leave my son whilst I am working and training.
The learning aids and activities suit my son's active character, using the outdoors, nature activities and foreign languages too.
Thank you for all the help and encouragement.
