Reviews

9.1 Bright Horizons Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.140)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 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 4.563 for Bright Horizons Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (119 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.563

  • 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 4.577 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 6 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.577

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

This is a great nursery. The staff are really lovely and seem to be happy in their work and develop good relationships with the children, clearly seeing them as individuals. My three-year-old daughter has always been more timid around men than women and I think the fact she previously attending an all-female nursery from the age of 9 months has contributed to that. She has come out of her shell in the three months she has been here, it's great that one of the workers in the preschool room is a man. My 10-month-old son has just started in the baby room and we are happy with that too.

Choosing the right nursery is such a huge and daunting decision for all parents, but I think this is especially true when it's your first child. We visited lots of different nurseries and although Beckenham Day Nursery and Preschool wasn't the closest to our home, we got the best feeling when we met the staff and were shown around.

I'm pleased to say we made the right decision for our daughter, who was just about 1 year old when she first started. The staff are incredible, the love and care they show to all of the kids there is plain to see every single day, and we instantly knew she was in the right place.

Over the past 6 months, our daughter has developed brilliantly and this is in no small part down to the varied activities, lovely food, cute friends she's made and the professionalism and love shown by the team. Can't recommend them enough.

When choosing a nursery I warmed to Teddies because of the home from home feel, I preferred the layout of this nursery and the staff immediately felt like friends, big smiles and cuddles for my children. My daughter started off in September attending morning session and straight away the nursery staff picked up on her delayed speech and language communication. Without the referral from the nursery getting her speech and language sessions might have been a more lengthy process. Once I retuned to work full time both children (2.5 years & 10 months) started to attend Teddies 3 full days a week. The staff at Teddies have been so accommodating and couldn't have made my return to work more smoother.
The meals are great and they also provide nappies. Thankfully both children look forward to their days at nursery and this is because of the staff making them feel welcomed. Free road parking at the nursery also helps with access to Elmers End station if travelling into London, massive bonus!

Excellent and friendly staff!
My child is well looked after and enjoys going to nursery. All members of staff go out of their way to ensure the safety and protection of my child at all times.
Since attending the nursery my child has enhanced their social skills, communication skills and overall development.

Teddies Nurseries Beckenham has been a God send to us after our son failed to settle at another local nursery. Staff are experienced and patient. As one of the team leaders said to me: 'We never give up with any child.' We are so thankful for the kindness and skill with which they have helped our little boy settle. Highly recommended.

Teddies appealed to us initially due to the friendliness of staff, the large outside space and you could see the children were happy and engaged with by staff. It is more pricey than other nurseries but we felt it was worth it. The Team have always listened to and accommodated our requests. Our son is very happy at Teddies and has lots of friends. The menu is varied and has actually helped us introduce new foods at home. The outside space has been developed and is amazing. We had some issues with arranging our childcare vouchers but eventually got it sorted. There are plenty of structured learning activities and free play. I have no hesitation recommending Teddies and an added bonus is it is close to Elmers End Station so great for drop off and pick up.

My son is currently in the pre-school room at Teddies and my daughter has just left, having progressed to school. The staff at Teddies are always welcoming and warm towards the children and ready to give hugs when needed. When my daughter had a problem with another child they worked really hard with us to help resolve the issue. It's reassuring to know that they are well cared for when you are not around. They do have a high turnover of staff but I think it's the same in many workplaces. At least they have a regular group of temporary staff that they use so they know the children. The food is excellent, good selection of healthy options. The outside space is great too since it was refurbished with various wooden play equipment. My only gripe would be the cost as they are expensive compared to other nurseries in the area. I think the nursery benefits from being part of a large company though and the training and support that goes with that.

Lovely nursery with friendly staff and a recently redesigned garden. Our daughter loves it there!

Our son was in the preschool and left well prepared for school. The staff are very friendly and caring. The baby room is lovely light and large. There is not perhaps as much equipment or ICT in the nursery as in others but they make up for this with caring staff.

My daughter has tried a wide range of different foods there and always eats the meals provided.

My daughter thoroughly enjoys attending Teddies and has learnt a lot through her carers and key person. Whilst I am overall content with the Nursery, I do feel that there has been a high turnover of staff in recent months and several staff who I presume to be temps filling in for the day. Of course this is to be expected to an extent, but does feel to have been a lot of new faces and changes that have not been documented on the (out-of-date) staff board at the entrance.

Also, whilst the Manager is away on adoption leave, I do not feel that her management cover has been as involved with the parents as she had previously been; in the months that her cover has been at the nursery, I am still not sure as to which member of staff she is? Obviously there are a fair few parents with children attending the nursery but would have liked to have been introduced.

Our son has flourished at Teddies Nurseries Beckenham. He started in the baby room at 9 months and he's now just about to move to the 2-3 room. He has built up fantastic relationship with not only his key worker but the other staff too. Most mornings he toddles off for a cuddle with one of the staff before breakfast. The routines and comforting surroundings give confidence and reassurance but he is never bored because of the variety of activities and lovely garden.

Excellent all round care. Our son comes here each day happy and with new things to show us. Everything from the staff to the food he gets is top level. I am happy leaving him and don't worry about him at all. I have full trust in the service they provide us. Great new outside space!

Excellent as always in helping my toddler develop social skills, language and physical play. Everything feels personal and super friendly. My son loves all the messy play, outdoor play as well as story time and nursery rhymes.

My daughter has been going to this nursery for over 6 months now and overall we're very happy with the level of care. Staff are really lovely, they genuinely care for the children and I can see good bonds forming. The new garden is fantastic, a real inspiration for the children. Organisation is sometimes a bit lacking, communication from the managers not great and parent feedback could be more encouraged, but this is not unique to this nursery. Food is good, my daughter eats it all but it could be slightly healthier.
