Reviews

9.1 Bright Horizons Chineham Park Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.056)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Chineham Park 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 55 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Chineham Park 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 12 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 4.653 for Bright Horizons Chineham Park Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (459 Excellents x 5) + (173 Goods x 4) + (28 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 660 Ratings = 4.653

  • 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 4.403 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Chineham Park Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 12 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 29.8 positive Reviews (149 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 29.8 Target = 0.403

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

My son started nursery in the baby room in July 2017, I have been very happy with the level of care he has received since being at Chineham. The nursery received team changes in October, which in my opinion are working really well and you can see the difference in the room standard and team morale. The staff are lovely and go above and beyond to ensure my son is safe and happy. Thank you, Chineham!

My child has recently come to the preschool room. I'm impressed with the staff and the activities they do with children. The nursery has recently been refurbished and it has so much space now. I'm happy with the management and how they are all taking steps to improve the daily activities. Staff (mostly) are friendly and connect well with parents. All I suggest and want to see improvements with is the meal planning - toddlers need continuous energy as they play a lot, so maybe a cookie or fruit as a mid-morning and mid-evening snack is very nutritious and another idea would be more physical activities - like stretch and grow, gymnastics etc.

My son has only just started at Bright Horizons in September. I find the staff in the room where he is being looked after in very friendly and take sure care and attention of my son.

I feel that the staff on entrance to the nursery could meet and greet parents better. Every time I enter, I make a point of saying hello first. Most of the time no conversation happens on first entrance. It goes a long way to say hello and goodbye and acknowledge of parents coming to the nursery.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review on the nursery. We appreciate your positive comments and I will inform the management team about your observations upon arrival each day. Many Thanks, Katherine.

My twin boys started at the nursery in March and from day one they got exceptional attention. The staff are amazing not with only the children but with parents too.
They love the kids, everyone always looks happy in Woodpeckers Room.
They play, try something new every day and their food menu always makes me hungry.
There are outside playing areas with tandem bikes and an apple tree.

I have been pleased with the level of care provided for my daughter, who loves attending preschool. She is enthusiastic about going in the mornings and tells me all about her day when I pick her up. The learning environment is excellent and the staff are receptive to what she wishes to learn about. I believe she is being very well prepared for school and will have a great grounding to build upon. Thank you for providing a safe, caring, fun and nurturing environment.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Bright Horizons Chineham Park Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 17 Feb 2017:

Thank you for your warm words and positive feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences and compliments about our nursery. I have noticed your low score regarding food/nutrition, I want to mention that we were very proud to receive an approval by the Children’s Food Trust and the menus have been very carefully designed by professional nutritionists. If you have any concerns, I would strongly recommend that you to speak to our team, so any areas of concern can be discussed and addressed.

Bright horizons ChinehamPark have the most amazing staff who always go out of their way to ensure your child is comfortable and happy. We have had a few family related issues which resulted in my child being in and out of the nursery and through it all, the staff supported her and helped her feel comfortable.

We as parents are always kept up to date with what's happening in the nursery and the office staff are always available for questions.

My child had her first play on Dec 16 which was well organised and she was so happy and excited

Due to a change of job, came a change of hours. With both parents being shift workers, it was difficult finding a nursery that could accommodate a 4-week pattern. The Nursery my son originally attended could not help us and meant a change of childcare. With only a month to organise alternative care, I contacted Chineham Park. Everything was organised quickly and with no problems.
Since the change of Nursery and in a very short amount of time I have watched my son's communication and social skills develop massively. When he comes home I find him saying or doing something new. I can only put this down to the fantastic environment and excellent staff. My son is always excited to be going to nursery and as a working parent, it is such a relief to know they are happy to be there.
Parents are kept well informed of what their child is learning, events and illness updates not only within each room but the nursery as a whole. This is done through regular emails and communication with staff.

Chineham Bright Horizons is a professional, caring and inviting nursery which possess an environment where my child is safe, well nurtured and able to maximise his development. The staff are friendly and should be considered both a credit to Bright Horizons and to themselves. The communication from the nursery is frequent, concise and informative - the nursery goes above and beyond. Chineham represents excellent value for money and it would be a pleasure to recommend them to other parents.

Nursery, in general, is ok, our child is happy and I feel staff are looking after my child. The only negative aspect is at pick up time when trying to find out what activities my son has been up to, it is always a bit vague or none at all.
Also, I would like to have the opportunity to get more one-to-one discussion about my child progression but don't seem to have any.
All in all, good place but more could be done to ensure my child is progressing towards school goals.

Thank you for your comments about our nursery, we really value your feedback. Please, can I encourage you to share your comments with the nursery team, as this will help us to quickly address any issues and to ensure that we are continually providing a naturally inspiring environment in which children can flourish and naturally love learning forever.

The nursery staff are very professional and are very good at looking after my child. They have a range of activities that I cannot provide at home (sand pit etc) which means my child enjoys his time at nursery.
I particularly like the fact that all food is freshly prepared on-site by an absolutely wonderful chef. We often go to the monthly cookery club she runs and have a great time.

My son started the nursery in mid-Jan and has settled in incredibly well. He has made 3 friends already and he always looks forward to going in. The location is perfect for my workplace and the cost is magnificent especially compared to what I was previously paying. The staff are really friendly as well.

I was nervous about someone other than myself looking after my 12-month-old son. As soon as I entered Bright Horizons, I was put at ease. They are professional, friendly, helpful and amazingly always smiling. I feel like I leave him in the care of friends.
My son has been there a little under a year but in that time has participated in many activities including, Christmas party, dressing up for Children In Need, professional photo shoot, making cards for our birthdays and Christmas and so many craft activities I loose count! I love seeing the artwork he creates when collecting him. I think my favourite thing is singing a nursery rhyme with him and watching him acting out the actions and trying to sing along - I haven't taught him this and it makes my heart melt every time I find something new he has learnt. If I do have another child I wouldn't think twice about enrolling them into Bright Horizons. Thank you so much for easing the pressure for working parents.

Always been fantastic with my children but my eldest has just started school and both him and the other children from his nursery all seem far better prepared and are doing really well with reading. I really believe the teaching the nursery did at preschool level especially (and particularly the Oxford Reading Tree books they encourage you to help the kids read too) has made a big difference. The staff all seem to really care and are lovely to boot!

My daughter started at the beginning of September. She struggled a little to settle in to begin with, but the staff in her room were amazing with her and now she loves going to nursery and names all of her carers as we get ready in the morning. She then goes in really happily, blows me a kiss and says 'bye Mummy' - I couldn't be happier with this nursery.

In the last month, there have been a few changes to staff in his current room, which has unsettled him when being dropped off. Carers have been excellent with him in all 3 rooms that he has been in.

The staff are very welcoming, approachable and friendly. From our initial meeting to settling in sessions and then starting nursery. The staff have made us and our son feel at ease, answered questions and concerns and made us feel included and consulted every step of the way. Our son is only in his first week of nursery. He has thoroughly enjoyed and we look forward to the weeks/years ahead.

Great nursery with very caring and responsive staff and management. Spaces are constrained, especially where there are large numbers of children, but equipment and activities are well provided for. Toilet facilities could be improved in some rooms. Overall very pleased with the service.

I decided to bring my son as he was very clingy. The nursery has helped to bring him out of his shell and interact with other children. Staff are always very polite and attentive to the children. I chose this nursery as it has a big outside area and segregated ages. Facilities are excellent and would high recommend.

My eldest son joined the nursery when he was 9 months old and stayed until he started aged just 4 in Sept 2015. I never had a moments worry in the time he attended and was able to focus on working. From the baby rooms where the staff are exceptionally warm and loving to preschool, which is geared to preparing for school, our experience has been great. My youngest son joined at the same age in 2014 and so far our experience has been just the same. Many work places/nurseries/schools talk of being one big family but few genuinely feel like it, to me this does.

Thank you for your review. By giving us your feedback, you are helping us to understand what we do well and how we can provide the highest level of care to our children and families.

Whilst reluctant to put our first child into day care the whole team at Chineham Park made everything so easy. He comes home every day tired out from all the activities and fun from the day. Staff are only happy to help with any questions or problems whether they are nursery related or not. I cannot recommend the whole team and nursery enough. Everyone looks as though they really enjoy spending time with every child when they walk through the door. We have learnt how to be better parents from Chineham and the team.

The pre-school my son attends is second to none. They have looked after him and guided him through a tricky home life, parents divorced.
They pay focus on his needs, both emotionally and physically. I feel confident with him on their care.

Bright Horizons Chineham has been a fantastic place for my daughter. She has been taken care of since she was 9 months. I completely feel safe and comfortable to leave my little one there! They're also thorough with procedures and have such variety of things for growing children.

My son has been at the above nursery for a year now and absolutely loves it. He settled in without hesitation and I believe this was due to the caring and attentive nature of the staff. His development has come on leaps and bounds, particularly his speech and I credit this to the patience and encouragement of the staff. I would recommend this nursery to any parent and feel rest assured that your children are in the best hands.

My son has attended this nursery since he was 9 months, and he is now in the pre-school room. He has always enjoyed going to nursery and now comes out excited telling me about his day. It has been lovely watching him grow within the nursery and has made some lovely relationships. Carers have been very approachable and helped him to reach different milestones.

My child has been in this nursery since she was 5 months old, the overall care she got was excellent however it took her a little while to get used to it. Now that she gets excited every time I tell her that she's going to nursery. She loves her key worker which gives us peace of mind and confidence that she's being cared for really well.

My child started here just before turning one with little confidence, feeding skills and slow mobility. Not even 2 yet and this has all been turned around by the wonderful and skilled staff. The environment is friendly and engaging. Transition between rooms has been smooth and as parent I am kept informed on a daily basis. My experience with communication has been great with updates if my child has not been themselves. I strongly recommend this setting!

My son has been attending the nursery from the age of 9 months. His transitions from one class to the other (including now pre-school) were always very smooth. The key people were always aware in terms of my sons individual needs and so was the cook. (he has allergy to berries and every time lots of effort has been put into his dishes so they look like those with strawberries etc. Management is very good and take every feedback constructively.

Thank you for your review. By giving us your feedback, you are helping us to understand what we do well and how we can provide the highest level of care to our children and families.

We are extremely happy with this nursery and all the staff here, who are very friendly, approachable and both caring and fun. I did have my concerns when my little one started nursery at 11 months as like any mother, but now I am happy I made the right choice. My little one settled down quite well thanks to the staff at Duckilngs team and we could sense the confidence she had developed when she moved to Bunnies (next stage). We couldn't have asked for any better key person or a nursery. We could see our little one has enjoyed the day looking at her smile when we come to pick her up.
I would happily recommend this nursery.
