  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 36 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.753 for Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (606 Excellents x 5) + (149 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 774 Ratings = 4.753

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 36 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 36 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target Reached = 1

  • 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's carer is amazing, she has been so good with my daughter that every time my daughter comes to nursery, she is excited and can't wait to come here. All the staff are lovely and my daughter has grown up and is a chatty, bubbly child.
I can't wait to see what creations she brings home as she often comes home with either a lovely painting or some cakes she has made. I can't fault this Nursery. My niece previously attended here and loved it, which is the reason behind why my partner and I picked this nursery for our daughter to go to.

My daughter has been attending Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool for a little more than a year now and my son for 6 months. They are both always happy to go there. My husband and I are very pleased with this nursery.

I really like the fact that we receive a newsletter regularly to let us know what our little ones have been up to.

My son has been attending Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool since he was 18 months old. He is now three and a half and I cannot thank Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool enough. All the staff are fantastic, I felt like he was being looked after by a member of the family. They are all extremely caring and kind. He settled in so well and enjoyed every day that he attended.

He always comes home extremely happy and looked forward to going back and seeing his friends.

Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool is a lovely nursery. The staff are extremely kind and caring and I would recommend it to any parent thinking about sending their child there.

I really can not fault this nursery. My daughter loves attending and you can see the impact it has had on her development, social skills and her eating.

The staff are lovely, welcoming, attentive and professional. The children have plenty of activities, educational and messy play. The outdoor spaces always seem to be improving and are well used and loved by the children.

I have experiences of other nurseries from my eldest daughter and this one is amazing. Great value for money too. I would recommend to anyone.

My daughter who is 12 years old, my 9-year-old niece, 6-year-old niece and now my 4-year-old nephew who is going to school next month, have all been to this nursery. There is nothing bad I could say about this nursery. It's gone from strength to strength and the staff are excellent and very caring. I absolutely love the new gardens and it's obvious that the children do too. I would recommend this nursery to anyone!

I can't fault this nursery at all. My nephew has enjoyed every minute of his time since he was 16 months old to now being a big boy going to school in September. He is happy, always laughing with his peers and loved every staff member who he had the pleasure of being around. They cared for him so well and taught him everything he knows and he is sad to be leaving soon. I have to say as well that the nursery gardens look fab :)

Very good day care, they really go the extra mile. My son had speech delay but he improved a lot in this day care. He has learnt a lot of educational stuff, like baking and bug hunting. He's been more talkative than before. Teachers go the extra mile and keep parents updated about daily activities and concerns that they have.

My 15-month-old daughter comes to this nursery one day a week and she loves it here, she has formed close relationships with the staff that look after her.
All the staff here made me feel very comfortable when I first had to leave her and I feel like she is in safe hands every time I leave her.
She is always happy when I come to pick her up and I am always told everything she has done that day and all the different activities she has been up to.
The nursery has just refurbished both of the gardens including the baby one which has now opened, my daughter loves playing out there, they have lots of room and plenty of activities to explore.
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone who is looking.

Katherine O'Brien, Digital Marketing Coordinator at Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 19 Jul 2017:

Thank you very much for your review. Your feedback is very important in helping us to understand how we can provide the high-quality care and education to you and your family. We noticed there are a few areas that could be improved for you. I have spoken to the Nursery Manager and they are more than happy to discuss any concerns you may have.

My son started when he was 10 months old. He has been very happy here and has learned a wide range of things - good and healthy eating, planets, safety on the road etc. He has grown in confidence and we are extremely pleased with how he has developed in the last few years. Many thanks to all at Teddies for all their help and support.

Very mixed feelings about our time at the nursery. On the one hand - the staff are lovely, caring and approachable. On the other hand, my child was put in danger by the nursery in not following their own procedures in relation to food service, and my child was accidentally given food she was allergic to on a number of occasions, which was blamed on individual members of staff at the time, when really it's management who should make sure things are followed through.

I have a daughter in the baby room at Teddies and I am extremely pleased with how she has settled into the nursery. I have always felt very happy with all the staff members and how they provide a welcoming and caring environment for both me and my daughter. I'm always given a thorough update upon collection and enjoy hearing about the fun activities my daughter has taken part in. I feel that communication from the management team is excellent, regularly receiving updates about the nursery and newsletters. I would highly recommend this nursery to others. I'm very happy with the high standard of care and how the staff members really know my child's likes and preferences, ensuring she is happy throughout the day.

This is a great nursery and the staff are wonderful. My son is doing so well there.
The biggest downfall is security. Anyone can walk in without really knowing who they are. Please please please can you have a security system where only authorised people are allowed to enter?
If they are a relative, they should give a password from the parents which enables them to collect the children. This should be recorded by the nursery. The last nursery my son went to had a great system and also provided parents with a key fob.
Also, the buggy storage is very small considering the number of children you have.

Our daughter has been at Teddies Coulsdon for approx 15 months.

She has developed a close bond with many of nursery staff, in particular, two ladies who have been absolutely brilliant.
As a parent, it's always reassuring dropping your child at nursery and seeing them run into their open arms.

The service we have received has been second to none. It has always felt like a personal one to one relationship rather than just being a number.

We’d like to say a big thank you to the manager for running a very well organised and professional day care service and wish Teddies Coulsdon the best of luck.

Our little girl will miss you!

I am extremely happy with how my children have settled in the nursery.
I have one child in preschool- they do so many activities.
My son always comes home and tells me about all the exciting things he has learnt during the day and the activities he really enjoyed.
My son settled and made friends quickly thanks to the excellent staff in that room!

I have a daughter in the baby room, my daughter is very particular about her routine - the staff have really helped follow her routine and ease her into nursery life. The staff provide an interesting and very caring environment for her!

My son moved to Teddies in September from another nursery and is loving it. The staff at pre-school offer a perfect balance between cuddles and encouraging independence. The staff are very attentive and always child focused - I have never witness them 'just chatting' or gossiping. The nursery has a lovely atmosphere and my child has learnt a lot whilst there - days are varied and he always comes home tired but happy.

My daughter has been attending Teddies Nurseries Coulsdon since she was 8 months old. The staff are friendly and always give my daughter the best care possible. She loves attending nursery and I feel she has really progressed and is learning a lot. The food seems good and the activities are great. Very happy with the staff, manager and the nursery itself.

I always receive a warm welcome and a good feedback from how he has been and what he has been up to. He has really enjoyed his time here and will be sad to see him leave to go to big school but I know he will have fond memories of his time here.

My daughters love attending Teddies Nurseries Coulsdon. Children are encouraged to learn and also have time to play with their friends. They also enjoy the external clubs that come to nursery like animal lab, mad academy and leaps and bounds. I feel very comfortable with leaving my kids with the staff who really care about the kids.

My daughter started out at Teddies Feb 2016 and I must say she has been way happier than the previous nursery she attended. She always looks forward to going out in the mornings and usually looks happy and content when she gets picked up too. The staff are extremely friendly as well and their enthusiasm to discuss my child's daily activities with me shows that they are truly dedicated and love what they do.
Highly recommended!

My daughter loves coming to nursery and she loves to talk about it at home and tells me all her friends names and also who looks after her. She is always happy to be left in the mornings. She also likes using the computer and iPad at nursery and I feel this really helps further her learning.

When I collect my niece from her nursery she is always so happy and I can see how much the staff care for her. They can tell me so much about what she has done that day. She does lots of painting and messy play. She is also always in the garden which I love to hear because she is definitely an outside child.

I have picked up a few times my two daughters at nursery and Everytime I have found the girls happy running around not wanting to go home. My wife does most of the drop offs and pick ups and the girls are always so thrilled to go. The staff is especially nice; the girls have built strong bonds with some of the ladies.

My son is leaving Teddies Coulsdon after 3 and a 1/2 years to start school and I just want to say a massive thank you to all the staff that have cared for him during his time there. It is an excellent nursery and my son has loved every minute of it. My baby daughter is due to start there in September after my maternity leave and I have no return to work worries this time as I know she will be cared for in the best way.

I am very happy with the care that is provided for my child at Teddies Nursery. They have a variety of different activities to offer. I look forward to seeing these activities on pick up and the displays in the room. My child has settled well in the baby room, thanks to the team in the room.

Very pleased with the learning strategies, opportunities for messy play and interaction with carers and other children. Both my children attend and I love that the nursery lets them both spend time together. I am pleased with how the nursery has "Leaps and bounds" and "mad academy" in to allow different play and learning activities.

My daughter couldn't be happier, healthier or more engaged with her play. Her key worker is brilliant and I am reassured that the nursery keep me informed of anything I need to be aware of.
The informal atmosphere, range of play options and support we get is really commendable.

Marketa, Mrkg at Bright Horizons Coulsdon Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 06 Oct 2015:

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

I have been delighted with the care my children have received at Teddies. The staff in the baby room are engaged with the children and my daughter is always delighted to see them. They have been very accommodating and supportive of dietary requirements as well.
My son attended for 3 years and thoroughly enjoyed pre-school. The staff took great care of him and genuinely cared about his well being. They did some delightful activities like hatching and caring for chicks, lots of crafts and themed days such as frozen and superheroes.

I have recently registered my daughter at the nursery, she has been attending for 2 months now and I can confidently say has settled in extremely well and her development has continued to grow. Since starting Coulsdon she is now able to communicate using 3 words at a time. The staff that look after her really know her needs and I am really happy with the care and interaction they give her. I feel happy to leave her in the mornings when I go to work and when I pick her up she is in a good mood and shows me what she's done at nursery.
