Reviews

9.6 Bright Horizons Esher Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.613)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Esher Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 38 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Esher 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 18 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 4.613 for Bright Horizons Esher Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (295 Excellents x 5) + (146 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 455 Ratings = 4.613

  • 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 Esher Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 18 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 10 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.

Very helpful staff. They understand my son very well. It's been 3yrs with Bright Horizons family and never had a single instance when I feel worried for my son. Now my second son will be joining the nursery soon I am excited to see his reaction.

Everyone at Teddies Esher Nursery has been doing outstanding work with the kids and the lovely activities they include every day to keep them having fun and learning something new every day. My daughter is being raised bilingual and the team have really supported her in learning and communicating in English and her vocabulary skills are improving massively every day. The team is also very hands-on and aware of every child's individuality and they do excellent work in all aspects.

We have been very happy with the nursery everyone knows our child personally and he has a very good relationship with the whole team. His key carers are especially close to him and take good care of his needs. Our child has been very happy here and his needs are well catered for. The management team have supported us and our son with some additional support he needs now and for his future.

My daughter has been attending Teddies Esher Nursery since she was about two (She is now 4) and is extremely happy here. The nursery is small and therefore feels like a home from home. Staff have always been amazing and she has a great relationship with most members. Great extracurricular activities including ballet and play ball.

Teddies is a great nursery with brilliant staff and a nurturing atmosphere. My only complaint is two year on year cost increases that are more than triple the rate of inflation. These are making affordability an issue for myself and some other parents at the nursery. This is a shame because otherwise Teddies is a brilliant place to send your little ones.

Our little boy joined in Teddies Esher in February attending one day a week. He was initially uncertain but the team worked hard to welcome him and settle him in. The staff make a point of taking a handover from me and giving a handover at the end of the day which is lovely and very helpful.
When he has been unwell or out of sorts the team have kept us well informed and up to date on the situation making sensible reasoned decisions that help us manage his time with the nursery and balance the family requirements.
He is well settled now nearly 4 months in we have no issues with the handover and he is happy to be with the team at Teddies to the point where he barely looks back when dropped off! Thank you!!

Our 2 1/2 year old started at Teddies in January and the welcome he received from staff and the happy and warm feel within the nursery helped him to settle in extremely quickly. His key person has been fantastic and we have been very impressed by how quickly she got to know him and by the detail that she was able to provide to us re her observations on his development at parents evening. Having moved from a very large nursery which was fabulous in many ways, we were quickly able to see the nurturing benefits of being in a smaller setting.

My child has been attending Teddies for 4 months and she loves it! At first, she was afraid because it was her first time at a nursery; the welcome cuddles and fun distractions all helped my daughter to settle in quickly. Now, she runs into the nursery with excitement. The team are friendly, flexible and informative. I feel comfort in knowing she is in great care.

My daughter started in the baby care room in March at 9 months old and has settled in really well and loves all the staff. The small size has been a great advantage, as it's a very calm, nurturing and friendly and has provided her with a home from home.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming and I always get a full handover with staff on collection to let me know what my daughter has been up to throughout the day, what she has eaten and how she has slept.

The nursery has a very flexible attitude which has been a massive help with transitioning back to work. The nursery offers one-off activities such as Jo Jingles and although the space outside is limited they do go out and about which is great.

I would definitely recommend.

I am delighted with Teddies for my daughter. She started when she was one and they settled her in very gently and patiently. Its small size has been advantageous because it is friendly and not daunting. The staff are so lovely -bubbly, hard working, very caring and very accommodating. She has flourished under their care and the customer service I have received has been second to none.
I feel they go out of their way to make up for the smaller size by being at the top of their game in every area, from staff attitudes to innovative, active play. The rooms constantly change with new themes, there are external classes (eg Teddy Tennis, Jo Jingles, Theatre bugs) and trips out (eg to a local Farm to collect Pumpkins and to the green.)
I moved her to this nursery from a larger nursery, with excellent facilities which did not seem as nurturing. Teddies have developed her in wonderful ways and I have peace of mind when I leave her there.

My daughter has been attending Teddies for 6 months and has settled within the nursery setting very well, despite her young age (9 months). Her key worker spent time talking through my daughter's personal preferences and has communicated any concerns/issues very well. I feel completely comfortable leaving my daughter with any of the team at the nursery. There are care and professionalism which I appreciate and trust. When I have raised any concerns, the staff have always made me feel that it is a priority and their actions have confirmed my gut instinct.

The limitations of the nursery setting regarding outdoor space are overcome by the many outdoor trips the staff plan for the kids. I am extremely happy with the overall development of my daughter and the attention she gets from the team at Teddies.

As a parent, trust in the people who care for my child is paramount. I have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to anyone considering a nursery placement.

My son joined Teddies full-time on August 16 just before his 2nd birthday and he absolutely loves it. He has progressed amazingly well and has made loads of friends. The nursery assistants are all lovely and welcoming. The nursery organises one-off activities such as ceramics painting and professional photographs and also a number of 'term time' activities such as jo jingles, playball, tennis that you have to pay for in addition to the fees but are optional. The outside space is limited but the children spend time outside every day. Would definitely recommend!

Teddies Esher is a small nursery with a calm, nurturing and very friendly atmosphere. Our two kids are both exceptionally happy there and have formed very close bonds with the staff. As parents, we really value the calmness in the nursery - the staff take their time with the kids and always have time to do a full handover as well as give advice/discuss special situations with us as parents. That makes a massive difference and this is not something we have experienced at previous nurseries, where care was much more rushed. The nursery is small (which we really like) but the staff is very good at bringing in external teachers, e.g. for special music classes, ball classes etc. They also regularly take the kids out for excursions.

We have complete trust in the staff and the care that our children receive and would highly recommend the nursery to anyone.

Our child enjoys going to this nursery every day and comes back full of stories of activities she has done. For us as parents, that is the fundamental criteria: is my child happy. She enjoys the activities and wants to do them at home as well.

Teddies have been taking very good care of my little one. My little one was more dependent on me before but after joining Teddies, she is very much independent and definitely her confidence has improved.
I personally like Teddies nursery as they keep the kids very active and my little one learnt a lot in 11 months time.
My only worry /concern for my kid is that she is very choosy when it comes to food, so she always try's to skip the lunch at nursery so that she can have food at home, but thanks to her caretakers and teachers, who try their best to feed her so that she doesn't stay hungry, at least if not full.
I would like to thank all of them who work with the kids, you guys are doing a very good job.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 6 months old and has loved every class. It's great to see all the fun she has and what new things she is learning. The manager and the team are lovely, always reassuring and friendly. My daughter's nursery rhymes and counting are coming on leaps and bounds and apart from the very few first times, I never have tears going in, she's always happy to go and looks forward to getting her bag ready. My Son also attended this nursery and had the same fantastic experience. Thank you all!

I want to thank especially the team in preschool at the moment for their exciting and stimulating activities which happen through the day while he is at nursery and have been able to see a real difference in his development

The nursery is very homely and cosy and just what you want when leaving your little one, it feels like a home away from home. I couldn't be happier that I chose Teddies!

My granddaughter had been attending the nursery for a year and she has just left to attend school. She was always so happy and would often talk about the fun activities she had done at nursery, her key carer was a lovely friendly lady who always showed great interest in her. I would often collect her and everyone was so friendly and there would always be lovely activities going on in her room. The management team are very helpful and always have a smile on their faces to greet parents/grandparents. I would definitely recommend this outstanding nursery.

Our son's first days/weeks in the nursery were not easy for him or me. He struggled with not having his parents around however all the staff in the baby room were very patient, understanding and caring. They went out of their way to comfort him and make him feel welcome. I rang the nursery on many occasions to check up on him, sometimes few times a day, and the staff had never made me feel like I was overdoing it or they had no time for me. They were very helpful and understanding and even emailed me pictures of my son playing etc.
We asked for him to be moved to toddlers room a bit earlier and they were very accommodating. They helped him settle in very quickly. They are also very supportive with his potty training which is not the easy task. The communication with us and all the feedback we get is great and very helpful.
I feel that my child's development and well-being is very important to them and that's all I can ask for.

My daughter has been at the nursery for 3 months and has settled in very well. The staff are wonderful and she is very fond of them. She has developed tremendously since joining. I also like the fact that the staff has a very open communication channel with the parents and helps in areas one may need - potty training for instance.
I had first visited the nursery shortly after my daughter was born and she only enrolled a few weeks before turning two. I'm very happy with the decision, especially after having visited lots of other local nurseries.

Teddies Nursery is an excellent place.
My son has been attending full time since he was 7 months old and keeps on enjoying his time at the nursery.
He particularly likes some of the activities organised, such as Jo Jingle, Theatre Bugs and Ball games.
Recently the management has made huge differences and he has enjoyed the additional activities such as the hero day, the "meeting of the bugs", etc.
My son is developing beautifully and I feel that this is definitely down to the excellent care he receives.
Thank you all at Teddies Nursery!

Lovely atmosphere, the staff are always really excited to update you on how our child spent her day. Lots of variety of activities, plenty of outdoor time and the odd external trip. Great variety of food. Lots of ideas for parents to do with children.

The nursery is welcoming, they were really welcoming to our son who moved a year ago from another nursery. They helped him settle and also kept us up to date on daily basis during the the first week. We get regular updates on how he is doing and how is day has been. These little bits of information really calm the parents that their child has been looked after well.

When we started at Teddies, my son was still co-sleeping so napping and leaving mommy was a big change. The staff at Teddies were incredibly patient with my baby, rocking him to sleep and giving him lots of cuddles. It took a long time for him to adjust - nearly three months - but now sometimes he doesn't want to leave!

We choose Teddies because they maintain a small number of children (only 12 in the baby room) even though they have larger than average rooms for the kids to explore. In the last few months, staff turnover has been high, but Teddies offers lots of training for staff to get them up to speed.

I am coming to the end of 6 years of my children being here and I am so so sad to have to say goodbye. My daughter loved it and is now 7 and my son loves it and finishes next week. They really know the children and give great consistency. Thank you to the staff who have seen my two through from baby too to pre school. We'll miss you Teddies xx

Our son enjoys preschool and has made some lovely friends. He has learnt a lot in his class this last year, which has helped prepare him for school. The outside space is small but they utilise it well and often do trips to the park. Very creative activities on the go in the class and our son knows his numbers and letters well from good fun teaching methods. He especially loves all songs he has learnt.

When we started our welcome was amazing, they made me and my son feel comfortable. They took their time getting to know my son so they knew everything, even down to his favourite colour. The staff are outstanding with a friendly home from home feel. My son being at the nursery has also helped his routine at home.
I have never see such lovely displays by children, every morning there is always something new and exciting for them to play with. They seem to have an endless supply of activity, I love it when my son comes home with drawings and paintings and is so excited to tell me how this day was.

When we first started the nursery the staff were so welcoming and warm-hearted. They made my daughter feel so welcome and helped getting her potty trained. The staff are excellent and always give me feedback on how her day has been and what she has been doing. The nursery has a wide range of toys to play with inside and outside. They also do a variety of activities to help improve my daughters learning.

Job Title: Deputy Manager

Joined: 2009

Description:

I started working with children in 2009 as a Kid’s club representative; I worked with ages from 3 months to 17 years! I worked in Turkey for 4 years doing this job as I absolutely loved it, I got to take children sailing, swimming, treasure hunts and loads of really fun activities. This job made me very serious about pursuing a career in childcare so I came back to the UK and started working in a nursery. I worked mainly in the 2-3’s room, I also Level 3 In Childcare whilst working there. This strengthened my knowledge and also meant I could go for a more senior position as this is something I always strive to do. In September 2014 I had the opportunity to go to Dubai as a nursery class teacher; of course I could not turn down the opportunity of a lifetime! I moved to Dubai and had my own class of 22 children; this was certainly an experience that has improved my leadership skills, knowledge, it had broadened my horizons on what I can do and I am able to achieve anything I set my mind to do. After spending a year in Dubai I moved back to the UK and started working for Bright Horizons as third in charge/room leader. After 2 months of being with the company I progressed to Deputy Manager and have been stunned to see the endless opportunities available within the company.
