  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Inglewood Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 15 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 4.844 for Bright Horizons Inglewood Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (406 Excellents x 5) + (73 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 480 Ratings = 4.844

  • 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 4.401 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Inglewood Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 15 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 37.4 positive Reviews (187 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 37.4 Target = 0.401

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

I attended Inglewood Nursery in 1996. I have such great memories of being there. I knew that was the only place that I would send my child. I was so happy when I took my daughter there to have a look around and I knew instantly that I wanted her to start straight away. The quality of care is outstanding, the facilities are amazing. I would highly recommend Inglewood to anyone wanting to put their child in full-time or part-time childcare.
Not a bad word to say.

From the moment our daughter started at Inglewood we have been certain we made the right choice for her. The staff helped us and her settle in quickly providing us with pictures to show how happy she was despite tears when we left and picked her up. Her development, through the staff's support and guidance, has exceeded our expectations. She now runs in in the morning and is smiling happily when we pick her up making us very happy. Our only reservation is the door security but we are aware that they are reviewing this.

A fabulous nursery with caring staff and interactive age-appropriate learning across each age group. My son has made lots of friends since joining Inglewood at 9 months old and enjoys coming into nursery for breakfast in the morning. The staff are enthusiastic and supportive. Nothing is too much trouble. Communication is excellent and children are taught to be independent from an early age.

My daughter has attended Inglewood since she was a baby and she is now in her final year. She loves going and is always excited to arrive in the morning. All of the staff are brilliant and there are proper handovers at each end of the day so you can discuss any concerns. The children do a really wide range of activities and the nursery has lots of great resources for them to use, and a lovely garden and pool. She is a very happy and confident little girl. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to other parents.

The third of my children is now going through Inglewood - the other two had a wonderful time and have very fond memories of their time there. Both of them left Inglewood totally prepared for school both emotionally and intellectually. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Inglewood.

December has been a lovely Christmassy month at Inglewood Day Nursery with the pre-school children putting on a wonderful nativity. I've been impressed with how well the team put the show together, practising the songs in particular - I never knew my daughter had such a memory!

The place looks lovely and Christmassy and the children have made lots of beautiful decorations.

I always find the team co-ordinate and link to seasonal and national events in a well-thought through, and meaningful manner.

Inglewood is a wonderful nursery. The facilities and staff are great. My son loves his time there and has flourished under Inglewood's care. One of the best things about this nursery is the support outside nursery hours. So many of the staff are more than happy to look after our son which is a tremendous benefit to us and takes the stress out of long days at work or unforeseen circumstances.

My son was initially at a different setting which he absolutely loved, however, whilst looking around for preschools Inglewood was recommended to myself and my husband. We decided to have a look, we were very impressed with what Inglewood had to offer. What impressed us the most was the outside space, something our sons current setting lacked. So we made the decision to put our son in Inglewood, it was the right decision as he settled in very well and has flourished. I now also have my second son at Inglewood and he also has settled in very well. I cannot fault the nursery and the staff here are really amazing. Both my boys love being here. They both have such good relationships with their peers and the staff. The staff really have shown a genuine care of duty for my boys with the transition to helping them settle in well. I would totally recommend Inglewood.

My 8-month-old daughter started Inglewood in Sep as I got back to work full time. The anxiety of a new mom leaving the child behind was soon put to rest by the excellent care my daughter received at Maple 1 room. The staff are fantastic and my husband and I really appreciate the effort they make to keep us updated on her daily activities and developments. Outstanding Ofsted rating, Spacious rooms, massive outdoor space, attentive and responsive staff are few of the many key strengths of the nursery. My daughter has skin issues/allergies and needs extra care and the staff have been very accommodating and understanding. Thank you and we are very confident that our daughter will thrive in such an environment as she is happy and excited every morning to go to the nursery.

My little girl has been attending Inglewood since she was 3 months old. She is now 16 months and I have not had a single day I have left her at nursery feeling worried or concerned. My little girl only does one day and the staff have ensured her transition to nursery life has been uncomplicated and settling. I can not praise the staff for their open and friendly attitude making not only my little girl feel welcome but myself too. They are so friendly and hands on with the children, listening to your requests and concerns and ensuring they know your child's needs every day. They give detailed reports of the day and take regular photos so you do not feel you are missing out on their development. We are having to leave the nursery due to myself taking a job closer to my home and I can not thank or praise the staff at Inglewood enough for the time and effort they have put into my little girl's development! Thank you and we will miss you.

Inglewood is a beautiful setting and very homely. The staff are amazing and my child's needs are met day in day out, he wants for nothing at Inglewood.
Every day on pick up I get fed back to about how he has been that day what he has been doing, it's always so lovely to hear. The garden is also amazing.
The staff are extremely good at comforting the children, ensuring they are happy and safe. We love Inglewood and highly recommend it.

We really enjoy hearing from our families and understand how important your views are. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Both of our children have been and are at Inglewood and we couldn't be more happy with the time they have spent there. It has an amazing setting, with a very large garden and a private pool! Staff are very personable, caring and get to know all children, ones not even in their room. There are activities run at various times throughout the year which the whole family can join in with. It's like one big happy family there.

Very supportive of parents and children's needs. Lovely environment for children to learn and develop as they prepare for school. My son has speech delays, the nursery are working with me to improve this alongside the hospital. They are allowing specialists to come in to the nursery to aid and train them further to assist with his progression. Assigned co parent to each child is an excellent touch allowing each child to feel safe and secure whilst with them.

My daughter has been at Inglewood for 3 months and we are really pleased we chose this Nursery - she always seems happy when we drop her off and has settled in quickly, thanks to the caring staff. They seem genuinely interested in her wellbeing and progress, and organise a variety of activities that I would never attempt at home! The outdoor space is fantastic too.

I am very happy with Inglewood since my daughter started in the Bramble room when she turned 2 years old. I like the fact that the room is not over crowded so there is plenty of space for the children to play. The range of activities and opportunities to develop and learn is fantastic. My daughter particular enjoys the home corner. The outdoor space is also great with plenty of outdoor toys, a large sand pit and playground. One of the main reasons we chose this nursery is that there is an indoor pool and she will be starting swimming lessons in September. I am also impressed with the staff, they are brilliant with the children and keep them interested with plenty of activities for example painting, sticking, cake making, dancing, singing etc. My daughter also gets one to one attention where she can develop further her learning from home for example, numbers, colours, shapes etc. Overall we are very pleased and would recommend the nursery.

Thank you for your warm words and positive feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and compliment on our nursery.

This Nursery has been such a wonderful place to see my two girls thrive and grow over the last year. They have loved being here and I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone considering a place for their child. The management team are fantastic and the staff we had experience with were all so friendly and loving to the children. It is very hard to say anything negative about Inglewood. It is a great environment for your children to grow and prepare for the next stage of life.

Inglewood is a wonderful nursery. The staff are all so lovely and caring, it's like home for the children with the love and care they receive :) They have amazing facilities in particular the fabulous grounds with so much to do and of interest. We have three children and our third is still at Inglewood and totally loves it as did the others. The staff are always interested in everything and so attentive with the children. I couldn't think of a better place for mine to be at nursery. Thank you to everyone.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care our nursery provides.

I cannot praise this nursery enough. From the minute we made the decision to send our daughter here we have been happy. She receives fantastic care and attention. The food, activities and day to day classes are brilliant. Our daughter loves being dropped off in the morning and always comes home having had a great time.
I've never worried while she is there and have the utmost confidence they care for her to the same standard I do.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We pride ourselves in offering a high standard of care.

My son is just enjoying his final days at Inglewood before going to "big" school - he's been there full-time for nearly 4.5 years having started at 6 months old and has progressed through each of the rooms. The outside space is second to none not to mention the added bonus of the swimming pool on site - I'm sure he has been bored when he has had any time at home!

The staff have always been incredibly supportive and friendly and responded quickly to any questions we have ever had. He has thrived in environment and the pre-school learning has set up brilliantly for making the transition to school.

We will miss coming to Inglewood (but coming back for holiday club) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to anyone.

Thank you, by giving us your feedback, you are helping us to understand what we do well.

Amazing nursery, with care and attention and a lot of love! The nursery has a key element that sets it apart from every other nursery I reviewed and that is the culture, teaming and people that work there. Any nursery can be have state of the art equipment but its the staff that make the environment brilliant. They spend time getting to know your child individually and the parents, which makes it feel like a family environment. LOVE, LOVE LOVE

Thank you for your positive feedback.

This is an excellent nursery, somewhere we feel very confident that our daughter receives the best care and attention she needs. So far, all the staff have been very warm, friendly and helpful and our little girl loves attending. Even though we have now moved further away from the nursery (and could easily join another nearer), we endure the journey because nothing else matches its quality. There are many activities to keep children stimulated such as swimming (in the on-site pool), zumba and yoga! I would definitely recommend family and friends to join this nursery.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care our nursery provides.

Such a lovely Nursery, staff are friendly and amazing with the kids. The atmosphere is always welcoming and I wouldn't be happy leaving my son anywhere else.

My son has a great time everyday he's at nursery, which helps make it easier leaving him knowing he loves it.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We are so happy to hear that you are happy with the setting and will pass your warm words on to the Inglewood nursery team.

The decision to place my child into nursery was a difficult one at a difficult time but the staff were wonderful from day one. They gave me so much confidence and the setting is exactly what I was looking for. I love that they spend so much time outside, that the food provided is well balanced and that the toys and activities are just what I would choose. I couldn't imagine my child being anywhere else.

Thank you for your kind words and lovely feedback.

My little one started at Inglewood when he was 15 months old. The staff and management team were very flexible when we were planning his settling in sessions/days which I appreciated. He settled in well and quickly, and he enjoys the varied indoor and outdoor activities. The staff in his room are friendly and caring.

Thank you very much for your warm words about our nursery. We really value your positive feedback.

Inglewood have embraced the challenges I have, as my child has additional needs. With the support of the nursery manager, our aspirations have been exceeded in many ways.

I am a very happy mother, we are moving 15 miles away from Inglewood. However, to highlight how amazing they are, we will still commute back and forth to this nursery. Need I say more :)

Thank you so much for your feedback and complimenting on our nursery's team.

Our youngest child is currently at Inglewood and our eldest child attended before moving on to school. The nursery has lovely big gardens for the children to get plenty of fresh air in and is designed to ensure the children can get some fresh air even if it is raining. The rooms are packed with fun learning activities for the children. Best of all are the staff, who provide a real family atmosphere. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

My daughter has been at this nursery since she was 6 months old and is now nearly 3. Throughout our time here, both she and I have been dealt with in a caring but professional manner with any issues that do come along being dealt with not only in a timely manner but also always to my satisfaction. The staff are fantastic and in every room she has been into the girls always have her best welfare at heart. The other children are also lovely and she has made, what I am sure will be lifelong friends. Would thoroughly recommend.

Sue Pumffrey

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 1999

Description:

I have been at Inglewood since 1999 and been in childcare for over 38 years. I am an NNEB but also have a degree and PGCE in Early Years and Education. I am also an EYP and am a qualified assessor and IQA of childcare qualification, as it is important to me that I can impart my knowledge and experiences as well as mentoring people who enter the sector.

I have always wanted to work in childcare and I am passionate about the nursery and the provision that we offer, where the children and their families are of paramount importance to us. Seeing young children develop and grow through their learning experiences is what makes my job so rewarding. When my children were younger, I was a childminder and I tried working in an office but only lasted 3 months before hastily returning to childcare! I have carried on training and developing professionally throughout my career.

I strive to maintain currency of practice in order to ensure I am able to support my team effectively and passionately believe we are entrusted to provide the best care and education we can. Inglewood is a place where everyone is happy and this is evident through our day to day work.

Louise Chapman

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2007

Description:

I have worked at Inglewood since 2007. I originally joined as Room Leader in one of the baby rooms and then became unit manager for the under 2s. I gained my foundation degree in early years, which was a huge sense of achievement and which has helped me in my career progression and my delivery of child care and education. I was then successful in gaining the position of deputy manager. I now have two children of my own and have enjoyed the fact they can come to work with me!

My passion is to ensure that the children in our nursery receive the highest standards of education and care. I have recently worked with our U2s manager to introduce a Mummy, Bump and Baby coffee morning which provides our new and expectant mummies with an opportunity to meet and catch up; their babies do too!
