The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Wembley 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 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wembley Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 3 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 4.618 for Wembley Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (178 Excellents x 5) + (89 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 275 Ratings = 4.618

  • 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 3.616 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Wembley Nursery and Preschool is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 25.8 positive Reviews (129 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 25.8 Target = 0.116

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

The nursery and staff are very tuned into my child and at times it is hard for my daughter to come away from the nursery! It is a home away from home, my daughter enjoys the meals and the management team are very pleasant and helpful. The prices have just come down to make it more competitive in the area but to be honest the service which is provided was well worth the price, this is just an added bonus. Opening is until 6 pm - at times could be a little bit longer but a small price to pay for an excellent service.

The nursery has been a very reassuring and caring start for me and my little boy. My baby started recently and has settled in really well. He goes to the staff happily and enjoys many different activities. I know I am leaving him in safe hands and the team are working hard to settle the more challenging times of his day, such as sleeping!. The team have been really supportive which is essential as I have not always wanted to leave him! I call up to check on him and nothing is too much trouble. A lovely team of staff who all know my little boy so well already and have stories each day as to what he has been getting up. He is happy to go and happy whenever I collect at the end of a session.

My daughter started nursery in March 2014 when she was only 1 year old, I was very much confident that she will be happy there as my first son was, also going to the same nursery for 3.5 years. They both learnt so much through their journey with their teachers, that I'm sure I wouldn't teach them as much as home. They both love this place, the staff are very friendly, communicative and supportive. Only when you meet you understand how good they are. Through their everyday task, you can see that they really care for the kids. Then meeting with the staff you are up to date with your kid's development and achievements. This is the best nursery in town!

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. The staff are very friendly, supportive, caring and nurturing. My son was reluctant to go at first but they encouraged and supported him (and me) and he soon found his confidence and started to enjoy himself there. It is very clean and well looked after, there are many toys and resources. The staff really do care about the children. I get a progress report almost every day, and I really like that they keep a progress book on each child and make sure they are individually reaching their own goals and their needs are met.
They do so many activities, theatre bugs is a particular favourite with my son, and he enjoys the French lessons too, he is also constantly bringing his drawings and paintings home. The security system they have in place is also very good, and all the staff know who you are (and always say hello which is lovely). He is about to leave to go to school but I will be sending my 16 month old daughter there very soon.

My son was scared of nursery at first as it was new. They made him very welcome and now he loves it. The staff genuinely care about the welfare of the children which is lovely, they always sing and play. My son has grown in so many ways since being here. All round it's a great Nursery.

We are very pleased with the care that our daughter is receiving at the nursery. We are given feedback everyday on the progress of our daughter. The nursery is clean and organised, there is a lot of activities and stimulation given to our daughter. So we drop her off and do not worry because she is in safe hands.
Her keyworker is great and sees a lot of potential in our daughter. Thank you.
The food is really good, we are pleased.

My son is attending Wembley nursery since he was 9 months and he really enjoys his time here. There are lots of activities that keep him occupied. The staff are friendly and feedback I receive at the end of the day is valuable. He is not a very good eater at home but finishes all his meals in the nursery.

My youngest son is due to start this nursery soon and the only drawback for me is that there is no sibling discount. Paying full time for two kids under 3 is quite expensive.

I have two children attending the nursery. Facilities are suitable. I do not get any feedback from preschool as I was expecting, so I do not know what my child does every day. This could be improved. My youngest has not settled in well yet, however am hoping this will change. Food is good with plenty of variety.

Thank you very much for your review. We really value your feedback. Please, can I encourage you to share your comments with the nursery team. It's important to us that they are addressed and you’re totally happy with the high level of care we provide.

My daughter has been going to the nursery for more than a year now and I am satisfied with the nursery, just that it is slightly inconvenient for people living close to Wembley central.
But in terms of services, care, staff etc I would recommend this nursery.

marketa cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Wembley Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 23 Mar 2016:

We really appreciate that you have taken time out to share your feedback, your opinion is very important to us. I am going to share your comments with the Nursery Manager and ask her to address your areas of concerns.

This is an excellent nursery especially pre-school. I find the nursery has a very family orientated environment and I am confident in the care my child receives.

I find the staff to be very friendly and accommodating especially management and pre school team. Since my child has attended the nursery in the last 11 months, I have notice her development and social skills have come on leaps. She's now very confident which I feel will help her when she moves on to school.

I am also pleased with the freshly prepared and cooked meals provided, especially as my child is a very fussy eater. The chef always seem to accommodate her needs.

I would definitely recommend this nursery to any parents, as you would never find a nursery which provides better child care than this one.

My daughter has been at Wembley since September 2015. She has settled in nicely to nursery and made friends. She has recently moved up to pre-school and is really enjoying it. She has come on leaps and bounds in her development. The staff are very friendly and informative at the nursery and do regular development checks with you regarding your child's progress and milestones. The children get healthy meal options plus snacks throughout the day. I am very happy with my child's progress at this nursery and would happily recommend.

Our daughter has been at nursery for almost 5 months now and has really enjoyed it. We have been really impressed with her overall ease at settling in with the other babies and the fantastic staff. The range of activities that our daughter is involved in as well as the different meals that are freshly prepared in the kitchen there. The staff at the nursery could not be lovelier - they are extremely caring and supportive and have such a kind way of making our daughter and the other babies feel social from the the moment they arrive in the morning until they are ready to go home.
