The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Teddies Loughton Day Nursery and Preschool 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Teddies Loughton Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.818 for Bright Horizons Teddies Loughton Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.818

  • 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 4.107 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Teddies Loughton Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.357

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

My daughter attends this nursery and is currently in babycare room.
The staff there are so friendly and caring - my daughter will literally run up to the gate upon arrival and put her arms out to her carers.
As a full-time mum it can be often difficult to know what goes on at nursery, however, my daughter shows me so many things at home, which I know I haven't taught her!! Such as blowing kisses, using a spoon and pointing to her eyes, nose, mouth etc.
Knowing how happy my daughter is there and how understanding and catering the staff are there to a self-confessed fussy mum!! I really couldn't recommend this place highly enough!!!

My son has been at this nursery for the last 14 months and he loves it. The care and attention he gets are second to none, the facilities he has available to him both in his room and in the garden are fantastic and he has a great relationship with his key worker and the other women in his room. I feel his development and learning is aided by the activities on offer and his interaction with the other children.

A great nursery, my son has been here since he was 8 months old and is now over 3 years. The staff are all so welcoming and really understand each child's needs. My son loves going to nursery here and has come on leaps and bounds.

We only started Teddies in September, it was very hard to leave my little one but so glad we did. He has now fully settled and he loves going to nursery, he does so many fun activities and talks of his day when he's collected. The smile on his face shows I made the right choice .
The staff at the nursery are all so energetic, motivated and they clearly have a passion for the work they do :) the manager and deputy have a great working relationship and are very approachable and give sound advice for new mummy's experiencing nursery life. I'd highly recommend a viewing at Teddies, you feel the buzz as soon as you walk through the door x

Returning to work after maternity leave is never easy, leaving your 10 month old in the care of a stranger is even harder. Teddies made the transition so easy, the Manager was a god send for me, along with all of her staff, even when my little one was tearful when I left him, or poorly she would check in on him and drop me a line to let me know he was ok.

My not so little on is now in his second year here, The staff are all very friendly and welcoming, the classrooms are clean and stimulating with attached garden areas to have outdoor activities. The facilities are great, they even have pets onsite for the kids to learn about animals.

The patients of these ladies are amazing, my little one is a really fussy eater and they always manage to get him up table to have a nutritional meal made fresh on the premises. Amazingly he’s even been back for seconds on numerous occasions, which will speak volumes for all the parents out there who have fussy eaters themselves.

I really can’t commend Teddies Loughton enough.

Teddies Nursery is a wonderful nursery that cares deeply about all of the children in their care. My daughter loves her Teachers and over the last 3 years we have seen her grow in self-confidence, build upon her social skills and gain a passion for learning. The nursery is really a home from home, if my daughter needs a cuddle, she gets one, some reassurance, she gets it and most of all, she gets the love and nurturing from the staff. The Manager has worked in partnership with me over the last 3 years, listening to my needs as well as my daughters. The level of early years provision is outstanding, which to me is really the icing on the cake. Teddies is a warm and inviting setting that I would be recommend highly.

My daughter loves going to Teddies. She started when she was 8 months old and she is now 14 months. I cannot recommend them enough. The staff are lovely, warm and welcoming. My daughter gets so excited just walking up to the gates and she always puts her arms out to go to the girls that work in the baby room. I have no concerns about leaving her at the nursery and I know she will have a fun, interactive and happy day at the nursery. The induction period was excellent and they slowly eased her into the nursery with me there as well so we could both get use to her going to nursery and to the baby room and getting to know the other members of staff. If I have ever had any queries or questions I know that they will get answered and dealt with promptly. Teddies is a fantastic nursery.

This Nursery is fantastic!

The facilities, staff and learning materials are great. My daughter attends this nursery full-time and loves it. She is advanced for her age and have to give the credit to the nursery and the workers for the attention and effort they show her. The girls in every room are friendly & approachable. It is very apparent that they are all very passionate about their jobs and the children.

The management staff are also brilliant. They're always willing extremely helpful, friendly and professional.

The food options for the children are also really good. they have a large outside play space which is perfect for the children, with lots of different things to do and play with.

I would highly recommend this nursery!
