Reviews

9.7 Bright Horizons Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.736)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Woodford Woodlands 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.736 for Bright Horizons Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (214 Excellents x 5) + (72 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 288 Ratings = 4.736

  • 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 Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 13 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 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

Our son has been at Woodford Woodlands full time since 11 months old, and now he is 3.5 years old. He took a while to settle in as a baby, but since then he loved going to nursery every day, learning and having fun with the staff and children. He has made great friends at Woodlands, and the staff are warm and welcoming. He is well looked after and we get on well with the friendly staff. We are glad we have sent our son to Woodford Woodlands and have recommended to others.

A very professional nursery with a caring and wonderful team of staff at its heart. The facilities are excellent and the focus on continuing to develop and maintain the standards of both the equipment and environment for the children is very apparent.
Although my son has a key worker, he is cared for and looked after by all the staff and this extends to us as a family.
My eldest son is often there for pick up or drop off of his brother and the staff are just as attentive to him.
Working lives are demanding for everyone and my husband and I cannot thank you and the staff enough for all they do for us.

I am delighted with the overall care, staff and progression of my son's development since starting at nursery. The support, communication and settling in have been second to none and invaluable.
They do everything they can to reassure parents and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a great environment, lovely support and a brilliant menu and food choice.

Lovely Nursery. Our boy has attended since he was 1 year old and is now 3.
His development here has been amazing, he was a shy boy but has really found confidence here.
The staff have worked with me to help progress skills over the years such as feeding and potty training. He loves going to Nursery and has made some great friends. He talks about the staff fondly and the ladies that work in his room are very friendly and professional.

My daughter has attended Woodlands since she was 9 months old (now 3 years and 2 months). I have constantly been happy with the level of care she has received. The staff are outstanding and really care about what they do, which shows with the happy kids they look after.

It's daunting sending your children into someone else's care, but my mind is always at rest with Woodlands, from the very first show round right to the present day. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds and really enjoys all the messy play and baking activities!

Thank you Woodlands.

My daughter has now been at Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery for five months and she absolutely loves it. The staff are great and have been very supportive, especially during the settling in period.
The nursery has a great welcoming atmosphere and everything is designed around the children. My interactions with the management team have been brilliant from day one and their passion for children is evident.
I would highly recommend the nursery to anyone looking for a comfortable, safe and caring environment for their child.

I have two children who attend Woodlands two days a week, I am extremely happy with the care they receive. They are always happy to be dropped off and never seem to want to come home at the end of the day!!!
The staff really care about the children and take such an interest in their development. We are inundated with artwork along with whatever they have baked/cooked that week. I feel both children are reaching their full potential and I can’t thank Woodlands enough.

This nursery was recommended by a Nanny who had worked there. I was very nervous at 1st, but needn't have been.
From the moment I contacted the nursery, I was met with warmth and genuine kindness. Almost like they understood how hard it was as a parent to leave your children in the care of others for such a long period of time. That working mum guilt that never goes away.

My children have never been happier... They go to nursery with excitement and never want to leave in the evenings.

The model of warmth and kindness flows throughout the nursery from the management to the staff, cook and cleaner.

My girls are continually coming home with new things that they have learnt and speak highly of all their teachers. The setting too works very well.

As a parent you search forums and read countless reviews to ensure you pick the right place for your child, hoping to get it right... Trust me this is a VERY, VERY Good choice. We are very sad to be leaving for infants in September

Woodlands is clean and well presented. Staff are friendly and approachable. There is an onsite chef who prepares meals fresh daily. All nappies and formula included, which differentiates it from many other nurseries.
Our daughter gets on well with the other children and staff there and we've seen the significant positive impact it's had on her development.

My daughter joined the nursery at the age of 13 months (she is nearly 4 years old now) when I went back to work full time and was very anxious to leave my child in a new strange environment. Woodlands staff was very helpful with settling in sessions and then at every stage in different age groups always. They always kept us updated with daily activities, progress and development. Nutritious menus are very carefully planned for all seasons with regular updates about every day's menu plan and child's intake to parents. Overall nursery environment is very hygienic and friendly. Staff members and managers are always keen to discuss if we needed to discuss or understand our child's learning/development plan. We were given regular access to record book and pictures showing her daily activities. I highly recommend this nursery and I would not consider going to any other nursery for my child's care.

My eldest son first started at Bright Horizons Woodlands Day Nursery in December 2011 and my youngest will leave in August 2017. I am so pleased that we picked Woodlands to care for our sons whilst we have been working. The staff are what makes Woodlands so special and the consistency in the management. I am so grateful for the happiness of my children when they are not with me and for the standard of their care. Both boys have loved the food at nursery and enjoyed their cookery lessons too. And there is a high value placed on outdoor play.

I've had 2 children attend Woodlands and I'm very happy with the care and service there. My children are happy and learning every day. The meals are healthy and fresh. The staff have been extremely supportive during a very difficult time in our lives and I cannot thank them enough. It's always the people that make the difference and in Woodlands this is very much apparent. The management takes the time to get to know parents and families properly and definitely go the extra mile to make things easier. It's so refreshing to think of the team as friends as we've got to know them so well over the years.

My daughter has attended Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery since was 4 months old (she's now 3 1/2). The settling in period was excellent and nursery supported me with breastfeeding. All of her key workers (in each phase) have been knowledgeable, professional and caring. I can ask to see my child's progress book at any time and it is always completed with observations and photos- celebrating milestones and positive experiences. We are kept up to date by regular and purposeful progress meetings. I am also able to contribute to my daughter's progress book by home observations. I know what my child is learning about week by week and I can see her pictures and activities on the display boards in the room that are changed regularly. The nursery has a very secure safeguarding policy which is adhered to consistently and effectively. All staff follow the policy and practices. I'm entirely happy that my child is flourishing; is cared for; is supported in her progress; enjoys attending and is safe at Woodford Woodlands Day Nursery.

My son was 7 months old when he first started at the nursery (he is now 2.5 years old and still loving it!). The nursery staff are fantastic and really tend to everybody's needs.
We receive daily reports on how our little ones are growing and developing. I know I'm repeating this but the staff really are amazing. The general hygiene cannot be faulted and the children seem to enjoy the food (which are healthy and always changing). A variety of activities are arranged for the kids daily (in doors and out doors; depending on the weather).
I would without a doubt recommend Woodlands Day Nursery to friends and family.

All of the staff are so friendly, it is like a second home. The staff give detailed feedback at the end of each day with activities the children have done and how they have eaten etc. They genuinely care about the children which gives me great comfort whilst at work.

Woodlands is a fantastic nursery that I would highly recommend - and have done on many occasions. My daughter joined the nursery five years ago when she was 8 months old on my return to working on a full time basis. Woodlands provided the love and care that I was looking for as well as all the practical stuff you expect, and often don't get consistently, in other nurseries. When my son came along, I foolishly left it too late to get spaces for the days I needed, and had to use other nurseries for a short time, so I do have comparisons. Woodlands strive for high standards in all things; from staffing, interaction with parents, food it provides right down to the type of nappies used! The most important thing is my children have been/are so happy there and to be part of the Woodlands family.

All 3 of my daughters have attended Woodlands, the first starting in 2008 and my last one is due to leave this summer. The staff have always been wonderful - a happy smile and a warm welcome has always greeted my girls on their arrival and even though there were tears on many occasions, I always left there knowing they would have a great day. They have helped to develop and instill confidence and love of 'school' which greatly helped with their transition to big school. There are always lovely colourful displays of the children's work and they obviously get up to a lot of fun activities as is seen by the artwork that comes home and what is seen around the rooms. The staff are brilliant and helpful and know exactly what sort of day my child has had when I pick them up. I would highly recommend Woodlands as an excellent childcare provider.

Our daughter has been attending Woodlands full time since she was 4 months old. Having just turned 4 years old, and now look forward to her starting school in September, we have nothing but praise and admiration for how all the staff have cared for our daughter over the years. Care standards have always been high, and any concerns - no matter how minor - have been addressed to our satisfaction. For example, Woodlands made improvements to the menu to include more fruit as 'pudding', and provide a more 'healthy' menu. Our daughter is known by all the staff, and which she always rates 'everybody' as her favourite!
Our daughter's interests have been nurtured over the years, as well as preparing her for school. They have done an outstanding job in reinforcing the manners and 'social niceties' which we have sought to place in our daughter. I know our daughter sees Woodlands as her 'other home', which she always looks forward to going every day. Thank you, Woodlands.

My son has attended Woodlands Day Nursery for 2 days a week for the last 6 Months since he was a year old, and I can't fault the nursery or staff at all.
It is an incredibly caring environment and my son has come along in leaps and bounds since he has been at Woodlands.
I am so happy with the care and teaching provided and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
