  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Sevenoaks 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 4.75 for Bright Horizons Sevenoaks Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (241 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 312 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Sevenoaks 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 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.317

  • 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 hasn't been at the nursery long but developed a lovely relationship with her key person and other staff members.

Staff seem to genuinely care for the children though internal rooms/facilities do seem tired and could do with being updated/modernised.

The staff have made our sons transition into nursery very easy. They are supportive and warm and it's very easy to communicate any worries or concerns, via email or phone.
They've taken the time to learn about my son and meet his personal needs.
I'm very happy with the care he's received and this has made it easier to leave him throughout the day.

My daughter has been at Teddies the last 6 months in the Tiny Teddies room. The ladies in her room ensure she has a great day at nursery meeting her care routine and all her needs. The nursery provides tasty meals and activities to further her development. The office management are always very helpful and welcoming to our family.

Excellent care provided. Caring staff who are proactive in developing child's skills, so they can reach their potential. Fun environment and staff work well together creating a seamless level of care when a key worker is on holiday or ill. Food is cooked fresh with varied healthy meals. Nice outside play area. Very good at engaging parents with regular updates on child's progress. Newsletter and various events parents are invited to (e.g. Mother's day, Christmas party). Would highly recommend this nursery.

My daughter has recently started at Teddies in the baby room. As a first time mum. I feel very confident when I hand my child over to her keyworker. The staff are very friendly and approachable. Being the diva she is it's not an issue to them which makes me feel at ease. I love the way the learning and development is tracked by the staff, management and the nursery Senco/ELLP. I love the fact that all the food is freshly cooked from scratch and is a well-balanced diet.

My eldest son attended Teddies, he really enjoyed all his time at nursery - making friendships developing him into the confident child he now is. He was prepared and has the knowledge to settle him into school life well. My youngest son has been with Teddies since he was 9 months old has now just moved into pre-school, he has had all his needs met and his key carer has always gone above and beyond to settle and develop him in the best way. Always working alongside with me to work on his potty training and turning him into a healthy eater with a great manner.

My son only started at Teddies four weeks ago and literally from day one it has been the perfect experience. He found it very unsettling transitioning to a nursery setting but his key worker helped him enormously. We have come on in leaps and bounds. She went the extra mile by calling us daily to update us on his progress which was amazing. I honestly couldn't ask for any more.

Both my son and I have had a great experience with Teddies. My son has struggled with leaving me whilst at nursery and all staff and his key worker have been great. All staff have communicated with me throughout his time away from me letting me know that he's alright and everyone is so lovely to him. He's really enjoying the time there now and he's being pushed with his learning as he's very clever and gets bored very quickly.

My son started at 1 years old and has flourished at Teddies Nurseries Sevenoaks. The staff are wonderful at entertaining him, exhausting him and caring for him when all he wants is cuddles. My son enjoys every day there and will even drag his bag to the door to go to the nursery on his days off!

My daughter started Teddies in September 2015, she is my second child to have attended the nursery so I had full confidence that she would be in good hands and would be happy and content. My experience of her baby care room has been so positive she initially was reluctant but her relationship with her key worker has been amazing and has made going back to work so much easier, as I am confident in her knowledge she is happy and being looked after. I have been blown away by the staff in baby care and in particular, her key worker who is patient, kind, passionate in her care of my daughter.

My son has attend Teddies in Sevenoaks for the past 4.5 years and has just left to go to school. He attended full time and we cannot thank the staff for all their care and attention that they showed him whilst he was there. They helped to shape him into the confident little boy that he is today and he cannot wait to start big school. The staff have consistently gone above and beyond in their relationships with him to ensure that he is happy.

We are very happy with the level of care provided. Staff are always kind, thoughtful and supportive. We have two very different children and their needs are equally well met. The outdoor space is a bit limited and does not offer free flow play but staff manage this well and give opportunities to play sports at a local park.

Thank you for your kind feedback – it’s wonderful to hear!

Professional staff, exceptionally child friendly with ultimate focus and concern about doing what is right for the child. Very accommodating and always open to suggestions. Management practice an open door policy and key workers, with the ones I've had, have gone over and above what is required of them.

I cannot rate Teddies Sevenoaks nursery highly enough! My little boy recently graduated from Teddies - following a lovely graduation ceremony and my little girl still attends. From the moment they started Teddies they were cared for, nurtured and loved by their key workers and soon became part of the lovely, close family-feel team of staff. They cater for a wide range of learning styles and needs and endeavour to make learning fun. They delight in parental involvement and often organise special family days with delicious treats cooked on site.
Teddies staff are very supportive and have often gone over and beyond the call of duty to support our family- thank you! I am very grateful to have succeeded in gaining a place for both of my children in Teddies Sevenoaks and would highly recommend it.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback.

Our daughter has attended Teddies from only 4 months old and my wife and I have been really happy with the care that she has received. Her Key Carers are delightful and our daughter seems very happy in their care. She gets exposed to so many stimulating activities at Teddies which I'm sure are beneficial to her development. She seems quite advanced for her age in terms of language and cognitive skills which I attribute in no small part to her time at Teddies. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Teddies if you're looking for high quality child care in the Sevenoaks area.

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.

Teddies provides a fantastic start to your baby. Both my children have attended the nursery, their staff, managers, whole team is focused on providing outstanding child care for the child, tailored for individual child's needs. My elder one suffers from various allergies, and it was always positively managed by teddies, with a smile. I never observed any negative attitude towards it. They accepted the challenge and rose up to it with innovative ideas to effectively manage it. This helped my little one to be a confident child who was aware about his allergies and all prepared when he started school.
Both my kids love it and adore their key carers. Nursery managers are always approachable to parents, listen to them and act on feedback.

Teddies engage with families, welcome siblings to nursery functions, making it easy to settle in for the child.

I am very pleased with it and glad I had chosen it. I would recommend it to anyone for their kids.
Teddies know how to make learning fun and provide home away from home.

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

I cannot rate this nursery highly enough. The staff are always so friendly and both my son's settled quickly into nursery because of the care and attention of the staff. My youngest loves being out in the garden playing in the sand or getting wet with messy play.
The food they serve is amazing which is great having 2 boys who can really eat!!
I would definitely recommend Teddies to friends.

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

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was only a few months old and we have been extremely happy with the care and the carers. She is always very happy when she comes home and she seems to be learning a lot at the nursery, too. The staff and management are always very friendly, helpful and responsive to our questions. My husband and I feel that there is always a good vibe and atmosphere at Teddies, at least whenever we come to drop her off and pick her up. The children do so many different activities at Teddies.

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.

My child only goes to Teddies Sevenoaks 1 day a week but he loves it. When he wakes up in the morning like any child he says he does not want to go. However that soon changes when he arrives. He loves the activity's and he loves his Key Carers. He always eats the food which can some times be an issue at home. When I get home from work he is so excited to tell me what he has done for the day. He sometimes brings me home a picture which is lovely as well. On every special occasion Fathers day Mothers day or birthdays we always get a home made card as well. Just another little touch that Teddies Sevenoaks do. Well done to all the staff and Management at Sevenoaks for making My son enjoy his nursery days. :)

Thank you so much for your great feedback. We really appreciate it.

Teddies Sevenoaks is a warm and welcoming nursery with staff who go above and beyond to meet the children's individual needs. My son (aged 2yrs) is very happy here and the care and education he receives is outstanding. His key carer takes time each day to ask how he is and what he would like to do today. He loves going each day which is such a reassuring thing to see as a parent! He also spends a lot of time outdoors regardless of the weather, which again as a mummy to a boy is lovely to see, he is also always exhausted after a day at nursery! the range of activities and resources the nursery has amazing and there is always something fun for him to join in with. He always eats so well at nursery and the food is cooked on site. I sometimes wish I could eat such lovely meals like he does for lunch and tea!
If you are thinking of childcare for your children, I strongly recommend you come and visit Teddies in Sevenoaks.

In 2000, I then went on to work at Teddies Tonbridge Nursery and Preschool as a Head of Unit. I was soon promoted to Deputy Manager and then to Nursery Manager. I then had the opportunity of opening Teddies Sevenoaks in 2002 and it has been lovely to see the nursery go from strength to strength and being rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. I have also been promoted to Senior Nursery Manager in this time. It is such a privilege to manage my team to ensure that each and every child receives the very best start in their lives.

Description:

I have been working at Teddies Sevenoaks since 2003. I joined as a Nursery Nurse and worked within our Baby Room for seven years, during which time I was promoted to Head of Unit. I am now the Deputy Manager and have been since 2010. I really enjoy my role as no two days are the same!

I started my childcare career in 1994 after gaining my NNEB Diploma and started working in a London Primary School as a Nursery Nurse within 3 Reception classes and then went on to set up an early years unit within the school. I left in 1998 to have my daughter and took a career break until joining Bright Horizons. Whilst at Bright Horizons, I have had a son, who has benefitted from the full Bright Horizons experience. I fully appreciate a parent’s perspective when looking around the nursery and strive to put them at ease as much as possible tailoring each personal tour to meet their needs.
