The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Bexleyheath 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Bexleyheath Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.574 for Bright Horizons Bexleyheath Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.574

  • 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 3.054 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Bexleyheath Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 18.4 positive Reviews (92 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 18.4 Target = 0.054

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

We now have 2 children at Teddies, our eldest just going into pre-school and our youngest in a toddler room.

Teddies has felt very established from the start, a big old house that is divided into great spaces for the children and a huge garden for them to explore out the back.

Our youngest started recently and we have seen a noticeable step up in the nursery in general since our eldest began.

They have implemented recent changes which are reflective of what a nursery should be doing, identifying what the parent's needs are before issues arise.

The staff have always been friendly and warm, and the current management team proactive and approachable.

There are only positives to be said about the nursery, including planned refurb works to the rooms, to make them more modern after you can see plenty of children have enjoyed destroying them over the years.

Well done team!

My family have been using Teddies for years now, the oldest now being 14. I am confident that my son is getting the proper care he needs and learning through play. My son loves going to nursery and often talks about friends and what he has been playing at when he is back at home.
Like all mothers, I was really concerned leaving my son with people that I didn't know, but the staff at teddies made this a really easy transition for both myself and my son. I will defiantly be sending my younger son there next year!
I think the fact that 13 years after we sent my niece to teddies I am still choosing teddies as the best nursery to send my son to speaks for itself... And there is still a number staff there that looked after her too!

My daughter has always enjoyed her time at Teddies. I found it very hard to leave her when I first returned to work but was reassured by just how quickly she settled and how caring the staff are. On the days that my daughter comes home from Teddies she just chat, chat, chats! She is full of beans and has clearly been kept busy and stimulated all day. Now, at nearly two years old, when I ask her what she did at nursery today, she usually says "played with friends" or went "went in big garden". The other day she started singing happy birthday, a song she must have learnt at Teddies. I am always kept well informed as to how my daughter has been on each day and I am confident that Teddies staff genuinely know and care about her well-being.

I'm very happy with our nursery in general, we can see many positive changes in our daughter's behaviour, we can see she's been singing songs as she is constantly singing alphabet at home recently (she is 18 months old). She enjoys crafty sessions, become more open to others and very interested in other children, since attending nursery. Carers are very accommodative and easy to talk to if necessary, however, this doesn't happen very often. My daughter loves going in there and I can see how much attached she became with some carers.

My older son attended Teddies and I marvel at his development while at Teddies. His speech and concentration were a concern for us before he started and we worried he would struggle a bit but when we met his teachers and they told us of the steps they would take to improving his learning and speech abilities we were left assured.
For his age, I am well pleased with his development and all kudos to the staff at Teddies.
As a result, we have enrolled his younger brother into Teddies too.

It's been a very nice and lovely experience for my son. The three years he spent here has been worth it and he has learnt the first stage of his early years in a very good and comfortable environment and we couldn't have asked for anything better.
