Teepee Day Nursery, Bracknell, Berkshire

Teepee Day Nursery is a family-run nursery providing the very best care and education for babies and children from six weeks old until they go to school.

It gained the Millie's Mark in 2017 - the highest standard in first aid and safety in early years. It also has an Outstanding Award from the Children's Food Trust (2017) for its home-cooked menus.

The nursery is set in a beautifully refurbished building conveniently situated just of the A3095 in Bracknell, backing onto woodland, and it is also a Forest School.

The nursery passionately believes that small is beautiful – that is even the company name. As a small, family-run nursery, it has great attention to detail.

The nursery is proud to have a day nursery where children, parents and staff are all happy and thrive.

For happy children and parents, staff know they need to have a happy team.
The team is proud of their achievements, as they gained a Gold Investors in People Award (2016), believing if they care for their colleagues, they can care for your children better.

All of the team are highly qualified – in fact they boast a high number of graduate and post-graduate practitioners, but to work there it’s far more than the qualifications, it’s all about the passion and care that it takes to work in early years. The team are hand-selected, and the nursery doesn’t use any agency practitioners, ever.

The nursery has a wide array of specialist classes. The activities are always changing and have included music workshops, theatrebugs, Zumba, dance, football coaching, cookery club, gardening club and language lessons.

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Teepee Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Teepee Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.792 for Teepee Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.792

  • 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 4.51 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Teepee Day Nursery is based on 5 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.510

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

Reviewer Connection to Teepee Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    6

The Teepee nursery is an amazing place for little ones. Both of my children settled in very quickly and formed close bonds with all members of staff. The whole place (rooms, patio, garden) is perfectly designed for small children. The kids are kept busy all day long with garden play, messy play, cooking with the chef, dancing, learning French, singing etc.

The nursery is kept very secure with double gate entries, alarm system when the doors are left opened for too long (i.e. - more than 2 seconds), fire drill. I know I can leave my children without having to worry about their safety while I am at work.

The Teepee nursery is also very good with following a routine you may have at home (sleeping time/length), potty training.

The food that the chef cooks every day is amazing. My kids are not afraid to let me know that her food is better than mine.

I unreservedly recommend the Teepee nursery to anyone.

My first child started when he was 1 and left when he started School, and I now have my 2nd child at TeePee. I can honestly say the care and attention the teams have to the children is outstanding.

From the start, they go out of their way to ensure any new child is settled in, with home visits, settling in days and regular feedback. The staff are friendly, positive and affectionate, and both my children quickly formed close bonds with the staff. The staff turn-over seems low compared to other nurseries, and it's a joy to see the same familiar and trustworthy faces.

The setting of the nursery is great, they have a lovely secure garden with tonnes of stimulating equipment, plus regular outings to the local parks and forests. Parents are invited to get involved with events such as tea parties, discos and Easter egg hunts. I didn't hesitate putting my 2nd child in TeePees care, after such a positive experience with my first.

The Teepee Day Nursery staff are fantastic. My Daughter loves everyone and always gets plenty of cuddles. She is happy to go every day and is always smiling when we collect her. The team are always on hand to assist in areas you want to focus on with your little one. Really happy and our daughter has come on leaps and bounds since starting almost a year ago. I highly recommend the nursery. The nursery doesn't make you feel like your child is just another number. Small really is Beautiful.

Having my child start nursery as a first time Mother was a very difficult thing. I was rather anxious about leaving her for a whole day, would she be OK, would she eat well, would she stick to her routine, would she miss me, what will I do when she isn't with me etc all normal reactions I have been told. The Teepee team made this so easy! I had absolutely no reservations leaving my daughter in their care and she had the best day with them. They stuck to her routine very well and she loves napping outside at home so doing that at the nursery was great. The team made sure I felt comfortable to call them whenever she is there if I just want a quick update on how she is and they reassured me she would be fine and enjoy her day. Every time I pick her up she is either fast asleep (which speaks for itself) or happy as anything just smiling away. This nursery is fantastic - recommend it to anyone thinking about starting their child at nursery with a dependable and trustworthy team.

The Teepee Nursery is such a lovely environment for children, a real home from home. My eldest child, who is now at school, used to go to the nursery and it has proved to be such a good stepping stone for her. Now, my youngest child attends and has been going for just over a year and she absolutely loves it. The staff are all so friendly and she has made such strong bonds with them and the other children. She enjoys the wide variety of activities on offer, so much so that sometimes I struggle to get her to come home!!!

Support process to help my son settle in has been amazing. Feel really confident leaving my son there which is hard when you return back to work. His mobility skills have improved since he has been with The Teepee Day Nursery and he is already walking. The food provided is amazing and helps increase my son's joy of tasting all foods. He loves music time and the activities there e.g. splash pool and slide. His speaking has increased since being at nursery and I feel this is because of the activities they undertake at The Teepee Day Nursery. Staff are amazing and my son has really taken to all staff.
