  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Sandown Park Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 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 4.813 for Bright Horizons Sandown Park Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (337 Excellents x 5) + (65 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 407 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 3.977 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Sandown Park 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 17.6 positive Reviews (88 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 17.6 Target = 0.227

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

We moved to the area from West London 3 months ago, so it was a big change for my little boy going straight into pre-school from previously being in the nursery class and not knowing anybody.
He fit in straight away and everybody was so welcoming and friendly. My little boy can be really shy but he came straight out of his shell as he felt so comfortable.
He truly loves it at Horseshoe and that for working parents gives such sound piece of mind. Lots of activities, he literally asks to go to bed in the eve as he is exhausted from having so much fun/activity all day.
A really lovely friendly nursery all round.

Our son has been very happy at Horseshoe and has come on in his development extremely well to a point where we feel he is more than ready to start at school in September. He has made some good friends while at Horseshoe but probably the most telling thing is when we asked him in May who he wanted to invite to his birthday party, the first thing he said was "I'd like my teachers to be at my party". That I think, says it all. Thank you, everyone, at Horseshow for making our little boy so happy.

My son is extremely happy when attending preschool at Horseshoe. The outside space is perfect as my little boy loves exploring the outdoor environment. He comes home each day sharing stories of what he has done, he is always very happy to go into preschool and always very happy on collection too. There is a huge range of activities and my son is always keen to try these out. The staff are very friendly and communicate very well with us as a family.

My son is in preschool and has been at Horseshoe since he was 11 months old. He loves it here and we think the staff are great. Management at Horseshoe are excellent. They are very accommodating and flexible. They understand the demands of working parents and the worry of leaving your child in someone else's care. The nursery has a great outdoor space and the preschool is well set up to prepare the children for school.

Both of my daughters are extremely happy at this nursery. They come home full of stories of what they have done during the day. I love the mix of activities they participate in. All of the staff are friendly, warm and really seem to care about our children and their progress. The outdoor space is particularly good and well used, which is one of the reasons why we chose this nursery.

Marketa Cardon, Mrkg at Bright Horizons Sandown Park Day Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 12 Sep 2016:

By giving us your feedback, you are helping us to understand how we can provide the highest level of care to our children and families. I would strongly recommend that you speak to the Nursery Manager and express your views, and if there are any areas of concern we need to make sure that they are addressed and you’re totally happy with the high level of care we provide.

This month my three-year-old son is moving from toddlers to preschool. The staff are being excellent in supporting him with the transition, which he is finding quite difficult. My ten-month-old daughter has also started at nursery and is being brilliantly looked after and is quickly settling into the lovely environment of the baby room and garden. Couldn't recommend the nursery more highly.

Both my daughters attend Horseshoe Day Nursery and absolutely love it. There is fabulous outside space for them to play in, including the Forest School. The facilities are brilliant and the staff are very caring. My 11-month-old recently started attending the nursery and the settling in sessions were extremely valuable and she has settled incredibly well. I highly recommend this nursery.

Horseshoe Day Nursery - Sandown has been amazing. Both of my children have been here from a young age and the staff from management through to the rooms have been wonderful. Everyone is caring and kind all staff know the kids and make them feel welcome. There is a genuine warmth and care from the team. The kids are happy confident and really enjoy their days which are always full of fun and learning. It is a brilliant nursery with a wonderful team and a Forest School to be proud of too. I would and have recommended Horseshoes it is brilliant.

This nursery was chosen due to the excellent outdoor space, and the facilities available to my children (soft play dome and Forest School). I felt it surpassed other nurseries in the area. Upon attending, have experienced wonderful staff at all stages, and both my children are happy and confident individuals who I feel are very well supported and cared for at Horseshoe. Also, a great community feeling at the nursery. Some excellent stand-out staff members who appear to have an endless amount of enthusiasm and caring for all the children and their development.

Fab place great staff, great care for the children all the way through from baby to pre-school. So much goes into the social side and organising special events. Having a Chef on site cooking all the meals is a rare thing and the food is great and healthy balanced meals. Both my children went/go here and we have never had any issues and my kids loved it. My eldest still goes back in school holidays for a few days and loves seeing everyone. They all work so hard at this nursery and it shows by the many things they create. When my eldest left for school she was confident and knew her numbers and phonics so she started school confident and she joined nursery as a shy nervous little girl. I don't think as a parent you can ask for more than that.

My little one (who can be quite clingy) now asks for one of the key workers at the weekend!

Cannot fault the staff and care at Horseshoe. Both of my children have attended since 4 months old and absolutely love the staff and nursery and the staff adore all the kids. All children are bright, confident and happy. Excellent activities and menu. Nothing is a drama for the staff. We highly, highly recommend and will miss the team once our kids start school.

My son is now at Horseshoe after attending over the last year. My daughter also attended the preschool. and was always eager to attend. My son absolutely loves being at Horseshoe. He always tells me how he's had a nice day without me even asking him. The staff are always exceptionally happy. They're very polite and nothing is ever too much trouble when we need some extra help. The environment is immaculate both in the nursery and preschool. Plus, my son is always in a good mood when I pick him up. I cannot recommend Horseshoe enough as an engaging and caring nursery.

Horseshoe is a fantastic nursery. My daughter started at 13 months after a period at another nursery that didn't work out. The manager and staff have been so supportive in ensuring the transition and making sure that my daughter and we as a family are supported and happy (I found it very hard to leave her at first but now find that because my daughter is happy there and I'm confident that she's well looked after I don't have the same concerns/problems).
The outside space is brilliant, she loves playing outside and in the forest school and the range of activities is great. Would highly recommend.

I chose the nursery initially due to its outdoor space. Nowhere in the area has the outdoor space like Horseshoe and my daughter loves exploring outside. My daughter has been at the nursery just over a year now and she loves it. Everyone she comes in contact with has developed a lovely relationship with her and it's a pleasure to see.
I'd highly recommend Horseshoe as a nursery, you can feel comfortable leaving your child to be looked after and developed.

My daughter has been attending the nursery since she was 7 months old and is now 3 years and 5 months and will continue there until she starts school. The care she has received in this nursery has been exceptional in every room she has been in. She loves getting up and going to nursery and is often disappointed in the days she does not attend to not be going. I highly recommend this nursery to anyone, staff are fantastic, activities they do are brilliant, outdoor space is fantastic for the little ones.

Wonderful nursery and pre-school, I've had 3 children go through Horseshoe and it is the best it's ever been. Wonderful staff who genuinely care about the children and interact with them, formulate learning relevant to each child. The Pre-school team are just brilliant.
The management is the best it's ever been.

I have always found both the staff and services at Horseshoe Nursery, Esher excellent. My daughter has attended since she was 6 months old and now considers the nursery and her key workers part of our extended family and home.

My personal belief is this standard of care stems from the top down. They have always gone the extra mile to ensure every child feels loved and supported throughout these formative years, they are a credit to the company.

My daughter is just about to complete her preschool year at Horseshoe and has loved every minute of her time here!

She enjoys the variety of activities provided, whether it be PE/Maths/Phonics or simply play time, and is always happy to get to school.

My husband and I feel that the preschool teachers and the environment will stand her in good stead for the transition to the infant school, and we are extremely impressed with the progress she has made and the happy tales she tells us at the end of each day.

The teachers and carers here are always open and approachable and willing to comment on our daughter's progress and behaviour.

We would recommend Horseshoe highly and are sad that she has to leave!

My son is in this nursery for about 8 months. From that time he changed a lot, he adapt very quick in his room. He has grown and developed in whole different life areas. His language is expanded especially that we speak in 2 languages at home. I am happy and proud that my son can be with a nice and great Nursery, also with lovely Staff.
Thank you.

The outdoor environment is a big hit with my little boy as he loves his football. We are very much looking forward to the transition into preschool.

My son is currently at Horse Shoe Nursery and loves it. I wanted to take the time, in writing, to mention two members of staff who are a real asset to your company (Nursery Nurse and Nursery Assistant). They are great with my son, and wonderful at sharing information with us (his parents) Together they are a formidable team, creating a warm and friendly environment, but with the right balance of discipline too.
I'm excited that my son is moving up to pre-school soon, but I will miss these two wonderful women who are such a great influence on my son.

I have 2 children who attend Horseshoe day Nursery. Nothing is to much for the staff and management. The children feel loved, safe and secure. I am impressed by the children's development. They have an excellent range of facilities.

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2001

Description:

I am the Nursery Manager at Horseshoe Day Nursery and Preschool. I worked as a Nursery Nurse in 2 schools within Nursery and Reception. My journey bought me to Farnborough in 2001 and I then joined Hatton Hill Day Nurseries working at Nursery on the Green and Footsteps. I worked my way through the ranks from Preschool Room Manager to Nursery Manager. After completing my Foundation Degree I moved to Starfish Guildford as their Nursery Manager. I worked there for 6 and a half years before moving to Horseshoe in 2012.

In her spare time Keely enjoys reading, spending time with her family and taking short breaks away.

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 1995

Description:

I have worked in Childcare for more than 20 years.

I have been employed in a variety of settings but am now at Horseshoe Nursery. I moved here in October 2014 having previously worked at our sister nursery, Churchfield House, for 5 years.
Once I realised that I wanted my career to be spent working with children I found it very challenging to find a way into a field that was pre-dominantly female and I spent two years trying to find information (this was pre internet days!). As a man it was very difficult and at the beginning I did come across some negativity. There were parents who felt uneasy having a man responsible for their children’s personal care but with the support I received from my managers and through taking time to build relationships with the parents who were doubtful, I was able to show that there was nothing to be concerned about.

Since beginning my career in Childcare I have worked in a variety of settings and nurseries, including one in Slough where I was the first male practitioner in their 72 year history! I really enjoy my work, even with all its ups and downs, and cannot see myself doing anything else.
I would thoroughly recommend Childcare to other men considering this as a career choice. There is not as much stigma attached today as there was in the past and with companies such as Bright Horizons actively recruiting and promoting male practitioners, the future for men in Childcare can only get better.
