Reviews

9.4 New Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.430)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for New Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 30 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for New Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 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 4.692 for New Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (266 Excellents x 5) + (82 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 360 Ratings = 4.692

  • 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 4.738 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for New Beckenham 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.738

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

My son has attended nursery for 18 months and really has thrived. He has some hearing and speech issues and the nursery have gone above and beyond to support him. Guided by SEN support externally and their own SENCO. Caring and nurturing staff, great location and are very open and communicate with parents.

A welcoming environment where the staff truly care for the children under their watch and obviously enjoy being part of their growth and development journey. All of the staff take time to know the children, even if they are not in their room, which is lovely. The children seem like they are always having fun and are happy to be there - it takes ages to get my child out of the door at night as she does not want to leave her friends and insists on saying bye to every member of staff. She loves it!

Management are very approachable and keen to receive feedback and comments from parents to ensure the nursery is the best it can be. Would definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.

I am so very happy I chose this nursery for my daughter. I find the staff caring and kind but also professional and fun. Communication between myself and the nursery managers and keyworkers has been excellent which has helped me build trust and confidence in the staff. My daughter brings home creative art and tells me about her day in little learners. The outside space is lovely and gives the nursery an open feel which I am very happy with. I highly recommend this nursery.

I currently have one child at the nursery and used to have another there. It has access to fantastic outdoor space and is surrounded by greenery which I think is beneficial for the children. There is a constant stream of fun activities planned for them and the catering seems excellent. What I like most, however, is the genuine affection the nursery staff appear to have for the children. Whilst I cannot speak for all the staff, the ones I come into contact with seem genuinely fond of the children and the children of them.

Both my older children (now 7 and 5) attended the nursery previously (2010 onwards). I was extremely happy with their care and development and as a result didn't even consider other options for my 3rd child who started here a month ago.

Third time around, I am still very happy with the staff and the care being provided. I was pleasantly surprised and extremely happy to see quite a few familiar faces within the team of carers, as generally, you hear about high staff turnover in nurseries. A couple of the staff members including the cook have been there since when my oldest started there 6 years ago and most of the senior staff from when my middle child left 1.5 years ago.

All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and it has been lovely to have some of the same carers looking after all 3 of my children. Gives me reassurance that they are in good hands.

Kidsunlimited is a very warm and welcoming nursery. The staff at all levels are all very pleasant and helpful. The children are kept in my opinion in a safe and engaging environment. And there is always a happy atmosphere. I had two children attending the nursery with my eldest just starting school. There's an emphasis on learning while at the same time all children are encouraged to be creative and are guided at there own pace. With the nursery displaying such an extended family atmosphere which is important when leaving your child, I have no hesitation for my youngest child to start when it's time.

We have sent both our children to this nursery so have been coming since May 2012. We have been consistently happy with the compassion and kindness of the staff towards the children and love all of the outdoor space that the kids have access to, which is very far from any polluting, busy roads or dangers. There was a long gap between managers which wasn't ideal as we saw a lot of the established staff leaving, however, this is now resolved and the staff seem a lot more settled and the new staff members are just as good as the old ones. The continuity of some senior staff helped to maintain standards during this time.

My son has been with Kidsunlimited since he was 11 months old in the baby room. He is now in Little Learners. Kidsunlimited is a very well run nursery. the staff and managers are caring, knowledgeable, hard working and above all kind to both parents and children. My child is in good hands every time I drop him off.

Baby room

The staff in baby room are fantastic, leaving your young child for any amount of time is hard at the beginning but they made it so easy. They clearly love the children there like their own. His key worker was a star.

Little Learners

My son has been here for about a month and he has REALLY come on! He counts, says sentences, sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - I'm amazed! Sometimes he's naughty but the staff handle this really well. I am happy that they are teaching him to play fair, share, use gentle hands and tell him off when he's naughty.

To be honest as long as they cuddle him when he's upset, feed him good food, let him do messy play, teach him a few things then it's money well spent.

My son started going to the nursery when he was 9 months (now 16 months). All the staff are very friendly and caring so he settled in very quickly and has developed so much since he joined in. Baby room has its own secured and quiet little garden which makes it feel safe and reassuring for parents as well. During the summer he enjoyed spending time in the garden and splashing water. Also, surrounding area is great with huge open space. (HSBC ground) Food is excellent with a various nutritious menu with taking each baby's requirements in detail and the "cooking activity" is a great idea for the baby to have interests in what they eat. Parking with reasonable price is a plus! The only thing which needs to be improved is the cleanliness of the facility, but given the fact that the building itself seems to be old there might be a limitation of how much it can be cleaned.

My son has been going to this nursery since he was 8 months old and his last day was this week. I and my wife have nothing but good things to say about both the facilities itself and also the nursery team. Despite a minor short gap in finding a new manager the day to day care of the children has been always good and I am pleased that they have now appointed a new manager since August 2016, who is already making her positive mark on the team and nursery overall.
I highly recommend this nursery and have found that my sons learning, social skills as well as overall happiness have been greatly supported by the team. They really go the extra mile. Thank you all for your hard work and keep it up!

My son started nursery when he was 3 months old. I was worried I had made the wrong decision as my mother felt strongly that he wouldn't receive the individual attention he needed. Within a couple of weeks, my anxiety melted away. I am delighted with the care and love he gets. I turn up at the nursery at various times and on every occasion he is clearly happy and well looked after. His face lights up when he sees his key worker in the morning and he is at ease with all the staff in the baby room. The nursery is very light, has wonderful outdoor space and a happy feel to it. The handover at the end of the day is excellent and procedures are well followed. Everything seems well documented and the children's' safety is taken very seriously. We receive weekly updates by email and the managers are always approachable and professional. My son has so much fun and stimulation and importantly he is well socialised and calm in new situations. I receive many positive comments about his behaviour!

We have had our daughter at the nursery for the past 2 years and are happy with the care provided. She is always excited to go and is full of stories of fun from her day.
There have been lots of changes in management which has been a little unsettling but the staff have been consistent throughout, especially the Deputy manager, who has just been appointed manager which we are very pleased about.

My daughter attended this nursery from the age of 1 until last month. She is wonderfully social and well mannered as a result, with a supportive network of friends from nursery. She has a consistent key worker, who she loved. She knows all her letters and can count already. My son has attended the nursery from 5 months and he is now a 1.5 yrs. He had a great key worker Charlotte, who I trusted completely. Coral, the main manager, and Vicky (deputy manager) are both capable and enthusiastic. Any niggles (and we all have them) are dealt with fairly and they are quick to respond. The nursery workers are very fond of the kids.

It is in a great location, with a car park right next to a main commuter line. There is a garden area for the baby room (which is used a lot in the summer) and lots of outside space for everyone else. My children love Jo Jingles there and the tennis coaching. They have an excellent cook, who is very visible. She cooks with the children and makes excellent meals.

My son has been attending this nursery from the age of 5 months and is now 4 years old and will be sadly leaving to start another new chapter in primary school, the staff are very friendly and welcoming in every room. I am very happy and satisfied with my sons development in all rooms and he will have the best start in primary school with all that he has learnt, he has good relationships with all the staff in each room. The outside space that the children have is amazing and it's lovely that the children are able have full use of all the outside grounds. The nursery also provide tennis and football and jo jingles throughout the week which my son thoroughly enjoys and can't wait to tell me about when I pick him up.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 10 months old and we experienced every room. Initially, we were satisfied with the nursery until the past year. There's been a high turnover of staff, especially no direction from having a constant manager has changed my views. The level of care and passion from staff are no longer evident. There are kids with runny/snotty noses but carers don't take the initiative to wipe the kids noses.

I personally feel there is no structure in the pre-school room and kids are moved up too early into preschool, therefore older kids are no longer stimulated or activities are not age specific. Management need to motivate staff and ensure the staff hired have the right experience for the rooms they are placed in. In the preschool room, handovers need improvement. For the past year there has been no constructive feedback of my daughter's day. Staff don't know the basics of her day, like how much she's eaten/what was on the menu/what activities she's done/if she had a nap etc.

Thank you for your feedback – your thoughts are very important to us. By giving us your feedback, you are helping us to understand how we can provide the highest level of care to our children and families. I would strongly recommend that you speak to the Nursery Manager or the Regional Manager and express your views, so any areas of concern are addressed and you’re totally happy with the high level of care we provide.

Our son started nursery at Kidsunlimited in January. It was very hard for him as he was going through separation anxiety. The staff at the Nursery was great at getting him settled and he now absolutely loves going to the nursery. He probably loves it more than staying at home! I appreciate the fact that he has lots of different activities to do every day and we get a summary of how his day was at the end of the day. He loves his key person and is very happy to see her everyday.

My two kids have been going to Kidsunlimited nursery and they have always been very happy.
The nurses are very helpful and smiley and I see the children are very well looked after.
My youngest still attends the nursery. There is a lot of green around the building and children are allowed to play outside (supervised) every day. Also they have recently introduced football and tennis lessons to every child.
I would definitely recommend this nursery to new parents. I fully trust them.

Marketa, Mrkg at New Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 07 Oct 2015:

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care our nursery provides.

Our daughter has been part time at KU for two years now from the baby room though toddlers and now to pre-school and we continue to be very happy with our choice of nursery. The carers and managers are lovely and endlessly reassuring no matter what crops up, and we've been really pleased with the way any issues have been dealt with. I've had occasion to observe a lot of the staff interacting with the children in recent months and I've been impressed by their energy, enthusiasm, patience and creativity. Staff turnover has been low which I think speaks for itself and something that I think is of particular importance in providing stability for the children. The key person system works well and our daughter has really bonded with her key carer. The location of the nursery is quite unique and it's great for the kids to have so much outdoor space. The recent addition of activities like football and jo jingles is a real bonus. Our 9 month old will be starting soon too and we have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to other parents.

Thank you for your positive feedback, we are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care we provide.

Excellent staff and very hands on management team. The carers are very diligent, compassionate and have a lot of pride on the children's development. My son looks forward to seeing his key carer each morning and sometimes asks for her on the weekend! There are also male carers which provides a good and balanced mix of role model to children.

The management team actively seeks out for feedback and initiated a Parents committee, whereby management and parents can organise events collaboratively. The nursery has clear policies on managing children disputes and incidents (e.g. biting incidents), the staff know the policies well and always maintain transparent communication to parents.

The nursery facility is great, there is plenty of outdoor space for the children. It is an absolute joy to watch them running around the garden in summer at pick up time.

In addition to the story, art and craft and music time, there are plenty of activities for the children e.g. Jo Jingles, tennis, football, which my son loves and always talk about it.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care our nursery provides.

Brilliant nursery with lots to do for all ages. Wide range of food and snacks available along with a 'breakfast bar' for the parents! Staff are friendly yet professional and offer different activities on a daily basis.

Thank you for your warm words & positive feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and complement on our nursery.

When we first viewed the nursery almost 2 years ago, the thing that struck me the most on both visits was that all the children appeared genuinely happy to be there. The staff and management are friendly, outgoing, caring and really adore the children in their charge. There are countless activities for the children, including music and cooking, and even the baby room participates in them. The outdoor space is amazing and the children love all of the space. We are so pleased with Kidsunlimited and our daughter loves it there.

Many thanks for your lovely feedback.

My daughter has been at nursery since babies and she is now in pre-school, she absolutely loves going to nursery. She loves running around and playing games outside, the nursery is lucky to have access to lots of outdoor space. The adults are all very welcoming and fun! Extra activities are also able on certain days. My daughter really enjoys tennis, football and especially Jo Jingles!
