Reviews

7.9 Teddies Nurseries Crawley has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.870)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Teddies Nurseries Crawley is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Teddies Nurseries Crawley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.382 for Teddies Nurseries Crawley is calculated as follows: ( (106 Excellents x 5) + (103 Goods x 4) + (19 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.382

  • 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 3.488 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Teddies Nurseries Crawley is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.238

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

We are very happy with Teddies, especially the people. They are very friendly and caring. They do lots of activities that kids love, in a very dynamic, safe environment. My son loves to go to nursery and he always talks about his day and how fun it was.

I would like more enhanced security at the nursery by introducing CCTV camera which records every individual entering in and out of premises. I would also like a broad curriculum which will assist children in preparing for school such as more of maths learning opportunities to advance their interests.

We really appreciate that you have taken time out to share your feedback, your opinion is very important to us. I am going to share your comments with the Nursery Manager and ask her to address your areas of concerns.

My son has enjoyed his time at Teddies immensely since he joined. The staff are very friendly and provide plenty of opportunities for the children to learn, develop and have fun. All of the staff seem to know all of the children and that close, personable nature of the nursery is very reassuring to us as parents.

Yes - Teddies Nursery Crawley is a fantastic nursery. The staff are truly fabulous and make me feel, as a parent, that they have developed a bond with both of my daughters.
I trust them to look after my girls and are giving them a great start in their learning and development.

Thank you Teddies Nursery Crawley!

My eldest daughter attended Teddies Nurseries Crawley for three years prior to starting school this month. I always felt that she was cared for by the girls there and they always had her best interests at heart. The relationships between the children and the carers are the most important thing and this is evident throughout the nursery. The building is not as large or impressive as other nurseries but it does have a homely feel which the children like. I would certainly recommend Teddies Nurseries Crawley to other parents.

Small nursery with a homely feel where all staff are welcoming and patient. My child loves going to this nursery an has built great bonds with all carers and peers.
Management go above and beyond to meet the parent's needs as well as the staff. I feel very comfortable leaving my child in their care and have enjoyed watching her grow in confidence moving from room to room.

Fantastic Nursery. My child has progressed so much since joining Teddies Nurseries Crawley and always enjoys going in for her two full days a week. The staff are fantastic and know each individual child's needs and key strengths. Everyone at Teddies Nurseries Crawley including the chef do an amazing job and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

The nursery is good with proper facilities and takes good care of the children. My Baby started going to nursery when she was 10 months old, and as a mother, I had a lot of worries how my child would be in nursery. Teddies Nurseries Crawley were amazing in doing their job and now I am assured about the baby care given. The daily updates of my child from the carers is good and helpful to keep us updated about my child which we miss. I would surely recommend this nursery where you can leave your baby in safe and caring hands.

I've had a very clingy toddler for the last few weeks and the girls in Panda's are fabulous with my Son. He settles within minutes. Everyone is always willing to help and give him a cuddle if he needs one. I couldn't recommend the nursery enough.

My daughter is my second child to have been to the nursery. While there have been many staff changes over a short period of time I feel this did not affect my son too much and in fact probably set him up for leaving to go to school. The only improvements I feel that need to drastically be made are to the outside area especially to the side by baby care. I think in the 3 years I can say I am more than happy with the care my children get and I am looking forward to the positive changes and new ideas from the new management.

We started nursery a few weeks ago. It wasn't easy (especially after a bad experience with another nursery), but we could tell from day one that our son was going to be looked after. The carers appreciated the fact that he needed some extra help and support to adjust and settle and offered this to him. Every day we could see the difference. Our son was settling better...he is now happily playing on his own and with his friends (only 6 weeks after starting at the nursery) and smiles at the carers when we are around. Teddies also accommodated my son's dietary requirements. They are generally quite flexible and I find this very important especially for new starters. Teddies is a small, warm and cosy nursery and the carers are engaging, warm and caring. Teddies also has a structured curriculum for the development of the children there. I would strongly recommend it!

My daughter has been attending Teddies in Worth Road, Pound Hill for 18 months. During this time I have seen her flourish, she's a happy, healthy independent little girl and I know that this is partly due to her attending Teddies. The staff are first class. I can see the love my child has for them and I can also see they all genuinely care for her wellbeing. Before having my daughter I was determined that should I be blessed enough to become a mother that no child of mine would go to a nursery. How wrong was I, it's the best thing I could have done for my daughter. She's excited to go to Teddies and on the days she has a wobbly all the ladies know how to reassure her. I know she's in good safe hands. I'd also like to give the Manager a massive thank you. No matter how busy she is she always finds time to help with questions I have and always happy to take the time to give me advice. Great Nursery, fantastic staff. 10 out of 10.

Teddies nursery is a very child-friendly environment well equipped with dedicated staff to cater and look after all kinds of children. I have a very wonderful, promising and active child which can be hard work... but the staff at the nursery look after her at their best and supervise her when she plays.
The staff and management are also very understanding and professional... Always ready to adjust to every single child's needs. Fantastic nursery!

Teddies is a home from home for my son. He is very happy at nursery, looks forward to going and often wants to return as soon as we leave. Teddies has wonderful, caring staff and provides a safe, friendly environment. Lots of the nurseries I viewed felt quite big and crowded, Teddies is much more intimate and provides the perfect balance of stimulation with caring. I felt totally comfortable leaving my son in their care when I returned to work when he was 10 months old. Teddie's location is also handy for any parents that need to get the train to work - just a short distance down the road is Three Bridges station. This sealed the deal for me.

Our daughter has been with Teddies Crawley since she was one and has progressed through the rooms and now is in her final year in preschool. The care she has received has been amazing throughout. She's become such a kind, caring and articulated little lady. She does amaze me with some of the things she comes out with. I couldn't fault Teddies at all.

My son has settled really well into nursery and the staff have gone above and beyond to not only ensure he has a great day, but I am kept up to date with how he is. Teddies provide various activities and my son's development has come on leaps and bounds. His key worker is amazing and I wouldn't want anyone else looking after my son whilst I am at work.
