Reviews

9.7 Bright Horizons Basingstoke Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.707)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Basingstoke 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 85 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Basingstoke 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 42 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 4.707 for Bright Horizons Basingstoke Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (745 Excellents x 5) + (251 Goods x 4) + (24 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 1020 Ratings = 4.707

  • 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 Basingstoke Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 42 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 42 Reviews ÷ 18 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.

Beautiful nursery, good staff, really good learning environment. My son loves it here, I struggle to get him to leave. Ever since we visited the nursery he's been absolutely in love with the place. My other two children will probably attend as well when they come of age.

I have been extremely pleased with Bright Horizons Basingstoke looking after both of my children - the first who started back in baby care in 2009 and left at the end of preschool. The staff have always been an absolute delight and I have no worries leaving my child in the nursery's care as the children are always happy and engaged. I would highly recommend Bright Horizons Basingstoke Day Nursery and Preschool to anyone.

My daughter has moved up recently to preschool and at the same time, we had a change to our routine. The team have been so accommodating and have kept in constant communication. It means a lot to us that she is in a safe and effective learning environment. She has grown so much since she started almost three years ago. We have recommended the nursery to others and have three of our friend's children currently attending.

Bright Horizons is actually the best nursery in Basingstoke. The kids enjoy it a lot there. Initially, I was a little worried about leaving my baby there but the staff take such good care of my baby, that I now feel she is in the safe hands. Regarding the development of child psychology, in the nursery, they are allowed to do many new and exciting things that keep kids busy and entertained. I am really happy with the staff at the nursery. My baby really enjoys going to the nursery and her happiness I can easily see from her face. Thank you, Bright Horizons for taking such good care of my baby.

My little one started here back in September. The staff made me feel very comfortable and at ease leaving my boy with them. They were all very welcoming and warming.
The food they eat is great and my boy eats better than me ! My little one has settled into nursery very easily making my transition back to work much easier.
I would definitely recommend this nursery to my friends and family.

I am always astounded by the level of care that the members of staff provide to my child within the room. I can confidently leave my child in the care of them and I strongly implore that my other mum friends do so too, this nursery is a warm environment in which supports my child's transition from home to nursery. Their ability to always support not only my child, but myself as well, is a huge bonus when I started with my first child and had many questions.

Every member of staff in this nursery has made me feel welcome and always greets me when we come in. My child is always excited to come to nursery and can't wait to see their friends each day, they love their key carer and I can be assured that they are looked after very well.

The staff are very friendly and my son made some special bonds with a couple of them. Parking can be challenging sometimes as its very small.

It would be good if a gazebo of some sort could be installed in the garden as in the summertime, there is no shade in the outside area, I also find the upstairs rooms very warm around this time of year.
I believe the staff and children would benefit from air conditioning units.

Also, as parents don't have a code to enter the nursery, it might be advisable to install an intercom/camera so that when the staff are busy, they could actually open the door without leaving the room instead of making a journey to the door and back.

Katherine O'Brien, Marketing Executive at Bright Horizons Basingstoke Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 10 Oct 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I have fed your comments back to the nursery. They have reassured me that they always ensure the children are out of the sun when it is at its hottest and ensure they have protection such as sun hats and cream on at all times when needed.
Please do feel free to discuss any concerns with the manager, her door is always open.

My daughter has only been at this nursery for 4 months now, and from day one we have loved the nursery and staff. Positive comments and thoughts throughout. Many thanks to all.

My little boy is flourishing at nursery. He is happy to go in and see all his friends and he loves the staff. He is always expertly looked after by staff who are so caring and friendly that you come to feel of them as extended family.
It has a lovely homely cosy environment where the children are cared for with their own individual needs in mind. There are plenty of opportunities for playing, building social skills, learning and having fun and as a parent, I still feel very involved as the staff always chat to me about how he is getting on and the things he has been up to!

My little boy has been to Teddies, Basingstoke for almost a year now and he loves it there. His speech has improved 100% since being there, especially coming out of a multi lingual home. His teachers are brilliant. I would definitely recommend Teddies to any of my friends.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for a month now and absolutely loves it. She has settled incredibly well and is learning so much there. Her vocabulary has come leaps and bounds - she knows so many words now that I know I didn't teach her. The staff really know her well - when they tell me what she's been playing with each day I often think "oh yes, that's something she enjoys at home too". However busy they are, they always spend time with us each evening talking through everything she's done that day and how she has been.
They have done an amazing job in getting her to eat vegetables too!

My daughter has been going to Teddies for a little while now and has settled in so well. I viewed a few local nurseries before choosing Teddies, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the baby room is huge with toys at a level where the babies can access them and it is so convenient that Teddies supply everything (all you need to take in is a change of clothes). Very happy with my choice.

I've always found the team and the care given to my 18-month-old son excellent.

He has attended for almost a year now and his development is fantastic.

I find the professional help and guidance from the staff very reassuring.

They know the milestones to hit, they know the illnesses to watch out for and they are aware of how my son compares to other children.

I'm very comfortable leaving my son in the care of the Teddie's team and he loves it too !

My son has had a wonderful 4 years at Teddies. He has forged some wonderful friendships with his peers, learnt a lot and has felt very loved by the staff. I have just collected him from his last ever session and I know he will miss everyone very much. I can definitely recommend the venue to others, plus it is only a two-minute walk from the town centre.

The staff have a very good understanding of my son's needs and requirements and I am extremely satisfied with the care which my son receives. Excellent nursery - would thoroughly recommend them!

Highly satisfied with service, and I would recommend to new parents looking for a nursery provider.

Our little girl has been attending Teddies Basingstoke since she was 9 months old, she is now in her final "class" before school next September. During her time at Teddies she has had some great Key Carers, whom she has become very fond of and has enjoyed spending her time with. I certainly trust the care of my child to them and feel that she has developed her confidence since she's been there.

Thanks to the excellent care and education my daughter has received at Teddies, I know that she has gained the skills and confidence needed for her next big step of starting school in September. Since starting at the nursery at the age of 9 months old, the staff have always been happy, welcoming and attentive, taking care of her every need (and mine) no matter how small. She loves coming into nursery and has fun taking part in the various activities on offer, especially cookery and the muddy kitchen.

I looked at lots of nurseries before choosing where to send my son, who was 9 months old when he started at Teddies. The baby room is beautiful, clean, stimulating and a warm home from home environment. The staff throughout the nursery are caring and professional. Unlike other nurseries, nappy changing facilities are away from the children and in a room to the side, stopping unpleasant smells in the playroom. I love that my son's time and development in the nursery is well documented and photographed. We are very happy with Teddies Basingstoke.

My daughter attends Teddies 4 days a week and I have been extremely impressed with the nursery right from when my daughter had her settling in sessions. The staff are all very friendly and make you feel very welcome.
The nursery day is packed out with different activities for my daughter to do and she always comes home exhausted.
I always get the impression the staff really care and want the best for the children. I like that I get a daily sheet letting me know what she has eaten, what she has been up to etc.
The food on offer is very varied and all cooked fresh each day.
I would highly recommend this nursery.

I am extremely happy with the nursery. My son was very nervous when he first started in Little Learners and it took him a long while to settle fully. But thanks to all of the ladies that came across him he now gets excited about going in and is coming on leaps and bounds with his development.
The staff and facilities are amazing. I can't rate them enough.

I cannot speak highly enough of this nursery. My son has been going for 14 months now having started at 7 1/2 months. The staff have helped in every stage of his development and have helped him to become a very content and playful boy.
As he has allergies I was worried about someone else looking after him but I haven't had to worry at all as they take his allergies seriously which has made it so much easier for me to leave him. He loves going into nursery every day and is keen to wave me off in the mornings. I recommend this nursery to anyone!

Lots of fun learning, playing and making lots of things to bring home. Food is cooked fresh on site. Both of our children enjoy the wide varity of food that is given to them and has enabled them to try new foods.
The transitions to different parts of the nursery from baby care to pre school has been very smooth sailing for parents and children.

Our Teddies Nursery adventure started 6 years ago with out first child. There was such a welcoming feeling when we went for our first visit, we just knew it was where we wanted our daughter to be cared for.
The staff at Teddies Basingstoke are so open and friendly, they make time for not only the children in their care, but also for the parents.
When our eldest left 2 years ago, it was very emotional saying goodbye to, what feels like, an extended family.

Having now had another child, I visit the nursery to obtain some information and from the moment I walked through the door, I was welcomed like I had never been away, it felt like going home! (None of the other nurseries I visited came remotely close and didn't stand a chance at being our final choice)

The nursery has a very cosy feel to it, which is far more personal than some of the purpose built settings I have seen and this just adds to its charm.

I think Teddies Nursery Basingstoke is a really brilliant nursery my son has been going to Teddies since September 2013 and he has come on leaps and bounds. Also, he has learnt so much, the staff are all brilliant with the children too and they have been really helpful and I'm looking forward to sending my daughter to Teddies also when she is a bit bigger and looking forward to how she progresses while she is at Teddies brilliant nursery, we are really glad we found it and sent our son there who will be leaving for school on 25th August.

I just love Teddies I can leave my 1-year-old daughter there and know that she will be well cared for and that she will have loads of fun while she is there.
The staff are all so very friendly and very welcoming.
I like it that they let you know what your child did for the day and let you know how she got on for the day.
The food is also amazing such a good selection of things for little ones to eat and they tell you how much and what they ate it's amazing.
Couldn't recommend them enough.
Thank you Teddies.

We were recommended Teddies nursery by my sister as her children have gone here. All her children have gone here. The staff are really knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. Our son absolutely loves it. He has a great key worker but all the staff in the baby room are great with him. I feel really confident him being here whilst my partner and I are at work. Our son gets to do lots of stimulating activities and gets to play and interact with lots of different children. His confidence and abilities have grown over the last 5 months he's been there. He has a number of food allergies and eczema which the nursery manage really well.

The end of term preschool graduation ceremony was a lovely touch and highlighted how attached the staff are to our kids. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. I would recommend the nursery/preschool to anyone that asked.

As always our son fully enjoys everyday at Teddies. The staff are always fun, approachable, happy and thoroughly knowledgeable. It makes it a great deal easier dropping our son off knowing he is in a very safe and competent hands. Top job all, well done.

My son started nursery when he was 11 months old, the staff in baby care were very supportive and made this decision so much easier for me. I felt very comfortable leaving him there knowing he will be well looked after. They give me a lot of information and details when I pick him up and I know he enjoys himself there a lot.

I have two children who have used Teddies. My youngest is now in pre-school and loves going. The staff at Teddies are committed and caring. It is clear the children come first. The direction of the nursery is clear play with learning adapting to each group of children as appropriate. The food is nutritious and plentiful and follows clear guidelines in relation to children's recommended intake. I always recommend this nursery to anyone who asks and its a shame this is our last year.

I am very pleased that my daughter has settled in well at the nursery. As a first parent its nerve wracking but the nursery put me at ease. The food always smells lovely and my daughter eats well. Very happy and would highly recommend the nursery.

I pick up my granddaughter from nursery and she is always so happy in the nursery. She is happily playing with the other children, and interacting with the staff. I have dropped her off at nursery before and she goes straight to a member of staff which is lovely to see. The staff always fill me in on her day and give me a written sheet which is great to pass on to my daughter.

My daughter attends Teddies Nursery and I couldn't be happier! She has settled in so well and the staff are brilliant with her. They keep me updated on her progress and communication is great from the nursery. The management team are very friendly and I am so comfortable with leaving her in their capable hands.

Joined: 2003

Description:

My name is Nikki Paine and I have been working for Bright Horizons since 2003. I first qualified in childcare in 2004 where I gained my Diploma Level 3 whilst working within the company; this gave me a great opportunity to learn whilst working. Due to completing my qualification with Bright Horizons I was able to work with all the different age groups.

I really enjoy working with the team and watching them develop their confidence and abilities to also progress within their career.
