Reviews

8.6 Bright Horizons Mongewell Park Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.579)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Mongewell Park Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Mongewell Park Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 3 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 4.967 for Bright Horizons Mongewell Park Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.967

  • 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 3.612 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Mongewell Park Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 26.8 positive Reviews (134 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 26.8 Target = 0.112

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

My twin daughters have been attending Bright Horizons Mongewell Park Nursery since they were 8 months old. The care and attention they receive in the baby room is excellent by all staff members. Their key worker has built a special bond with them and cares for their prime times in the nursery day and I feel reassured that my babies get their extra cuddles in the day if needed.
Activities my girls do, include garden play, messy play and taking part in the growing programmes. I love that they get the chance to learn, grow and develop whilst playing and interacting with children of similar age.
I love returning from work to hear what they have participated in and enjoyed in the day, also the nutritional meals that the chef cooks sound yummy and wish I could have my lunch there.
The office team and the admin lady are very helpful and answer any questions/queries I have regarding fees etc. I can ring in the day to have an update on my girls days and 9/10 times they always answer first time.

The team at Mongewell Park Bright Horizons Nursery are amazing.
From the baby room up to the preschool room, they nurture and develop each child individually.
They are always welcoming, ready with advice or ideas if you ask and work with you to celebrate each milestone.
Our daughter has had an amazing four years and will miss the security of her nursery but I know she has been given the best preparation for school. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

The staff are excellent at taking the time to bond with each child and they really care about the children they look after. Their education series (growing athletes, readers etc.) is very well done and I particularly like that staff hold curriculum evenings and in addition, they provide parents with a weekly memo which includes tips of what you can do at home with your child to help them develop. Our son loves going to Mongewell Park and we would highly recommend it.

My child has been attending Mongewell Park since September 2015 and I cannot recommend it enough. The environment is ideal, set in the most beautiful building with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Despite being a large nursery the rooms feel very personal and the staff work incredibly well together. The commitment to learning through play is excellent and my daughter, who medically was diagnosed to have speech delay, has benefited from good social interaction with staff and other children.

My son has been attending Mongewell since he was 11 months old, he's due to go to school this September. He has loved coming into nursery and each key worker in each room has fully understood him and has bonded with us as a family! I've never worried about leaving him and I enjoy talking to him on the way home about all the activities he's been up to and what he does with his friends! I've never had any concerns with his care at nursery, any time I've had to speak to the office or admin team I've had a swift and efficient response. When he attends school in September my son and our family will thoroughly miss the team and the care he receives! Keep up the good work Team Mongewell!

My nephew enjoyed his experience at this nursery and he flourished enormously whilst in their care. He always had stories to tell about his day. Although he has now left for school he still talks about his time there.

The care my son receives is second to none. It has fantastic outdoor areas including a forest school. My son has a great bond with his key person and all of the other staff in his room and other rooms. My son comes home with a full belly and very tired after being non stop all afternoon/day depending on his schedule.

Two of my children have attended Mongewell Park for a combined total of 4.5 years and I could not be happier with the nursery. I have the utmost confidence in the staff and feel completely comfortable leaving my children in their care. I know that they are being comforted, well nourished, that friendships and good behaviour are being encouraged, and plentiful learning opportunities are provided.

My 2 yr old daughter has been attending Mongewell Nursery for nearly a year and a half now, she absolutely loves it there, and she's thriving. The staff do a marvelous job. My only complaint is, there isn't space for her to go there 5 days a week!
