9.7 Bright Horizons Forest Park Bracknell Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.749)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Forest Park Bracknell 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Forest Park Bracknell 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 17 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 4.749 for Bright Horizons Forest Park Bracknell Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (173 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 227 Ratings = 4.749

  • 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 Forest Park Bracknell Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 17 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 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

Signing our daughter up to Teddies Bracknell has easily been one of the most rewarding decisions we have made. Seeing how much she has developed over the last few months whilst being there is a credit to the team and their hard work. All the staff, from management down, are friendly, approachable and always greet you with a smile on their faces, something that is reflected on the children's faces when you go into the nursery.
I could not recommend them enough.

My son has been attending this nursery for a year and I have always been confident that I'm leaving him in good hands. The staff are all friendly and helpful and he has made good relationships with all of his carers. There are a variety of activities to keep the children entertained and he is constantly coming home singing new songs! The nursery is small, but this is just right for us and there is a lovely community feeling.

From the first moment I walked in for a walk around, I had a great feeling about this nursery. The staff are amazing and friendly. My child loves going there and has bonded with her key workers very well. I feel confident leaving her there while I am at work. She has been thriving ever since she started, I know I made the right decision and would definitely recommend this nursery to other parents.

Our daughter has been going to Teddies for one month and settled well. The staff are very friendly, and I feel so confident and happy leaving our daughter in their capable, caring hands.

The Baby Care team are excellent. Food options are good and there are lots of fun activities. I like that the music sensory class is included in the fees.

We have put both our children through Teddies Bracknell, and have had positive experiences both times. The nursery has taught both of them invaluable social skills and how to interact with others. In particular, the setup and structure of the pre school room is excellent preparation for school. We would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to others.

My 18 month son has settled into Teddies with no problems. He really enjoys his days spent at nursery and loves to see all of the staff when he arrives in the morning. The team are lovely and have really helped me and baby get used to the new routine and I've seen positive improvements with my son's development since he has been going. I would definitely recommend this nursery to friends and family.

Teddies have always been my first choice for both my children. My now 5year old has fond memories of the nursery and my currently attending 3-year-old loves to go every day.
I can't fault the staff who are always on hand for any queries or observations from me and will always put the children's needs first.
Furthermore, management at the nursery are keen to engage the parents, with engagement mornings and bacon rolls on mothers day! Well done Teddies Bracknell.

The staff, including management, are very helpful and accommodating. Everything possible was done for our son to settle in and feel comfortable. Actually the main reason for chosing this nursery was the staff. Very happy with the care and attention provided.
Food is varied and we are very happy with what is offered daily.
The rooms can use a refurb, but clean and bright, with enough space and stimulation for the kids. They do the best they can with the outside space provided, limited as it is.

My daughter has attended nursery here since November last year. The staff in the baby room have worked hard to get her settled into nursery life and she has grown so much from not wanting to be left to running into nursery which makes going to work so much easier for her mum and I. It makes me so happy to see that she has had a lovely day at nursery and she is even starting to talk about her favourite friends and staff. She gets very excited at home when we talk about the music session that runs in the nursery too, called heart beeps. I recommend the nursery to all my friends and family.

Both my children have attended Teddies, with my youngest still there. He loves his time there, and always comes home happy. The staff are all lovely and I know my son is happy with them and has great bonds with them too!
The outside area is ok and safe to play in but really could do with updating.

He has loved his time at Teddies and the staff are very caring and he looks forward to going in.

Fantastic nursery, great staff and great facilities. My son settled brilliantly despite only doing 1 day per week for his first 4 months. Always feel welcome when dropping off or picking up. The children are taken out regularly and also do lots of crafts.

Our son has attended the nursery since November 2014. The staff are so accommodating of all of our needs. Being a military family means we really wanted to create some stability in our son's life and Teddies have gone that extra mile in supporting the many deployments we have been through with such an understanding. The staff are very reassuring, engaging and the development we have seen since our son has joined the nursery is incredible and will certainly give him a great start to his school transition in the future. The variety of food options available are healthy and I really like how they make the menu's seasonal. There are a number of other activities which have been enjoyed too. For example stretch and grow, and the librarian reading stories. I would have no hesitation in recommending Teddies nursery to family and friends.

Teddies Nursery is a brilliant nursery. Our little boy has been attending since 'Little Learners' and is now in Pre-School. He loves it. The codes of practice are routinely reinforced and communicated, I feel that my child is in a fun, safe and structured environment. The team is exceptional, always friendly and approachable and will always provide honest feedback on a child's progress. The classrooms are clean and tidy and kept to a high standard. The meals are also of a high standard and remain varied.

We send our son to Teddies and it was the best decision we made regarding childcare. We were apprehensive about sending him at such a young age, but the staff made so much effort to reassure us and allowed a generous amount of time for settling in.
My son is very content there and I can go to work knowing he is well looked after.
I really don't think my return to work would have been as easy without such a strong team at Teddies.

I love the menus they provide her with and am really impressed as to how they follow my routine as best as they can.

My baby has attended the nursery since November 2016. The staff have been so welcoming and accommodating of both mine and my babies needs. I have felt reassured by them making leaving my baby with them much easier. The baby room manager has such a way with the babies meaning my baby has taken to her straight away. I have been happy with the variety of food options available for my child also as we are still in the weaning stage it has been very helpful to have lots of healthy choices for them. I was also happy to find out that each week the babies have 'hartbeeps' attend and carry out a music and sensory session with the babies as this is something my child really enjoys :) I would definitely recommend Teddies nursery to family and friends.

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2013

Description:

I joined Bright Horizons in 2013 and started my journey here at Teddies Bracknell as deputy manager, before moving over to Dolphin Bracknell as deputy and then progressing to the manager. During my recent maternity leave I decided to return to Teddies with my daughter Alana. Since returning I have a new found respect for working Mummies and Daddies and how hard it is leaving your babies.

I have been working in the childcare sector for over 17 years in many areas from working as a nanny to supervising a pre-school. I have gained my degree in early years and education over the years and also my NVQ L3 & L4.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with Alana, going swimming and to baby classes.
