The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Kenilworth Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 42 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Kenilworth 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 38 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 4.704 for Bright Horizons Kenilworth Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (358 Excellents x 5) + (136 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 500 Ratings = 4.704

  • 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 Kenilworth Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 38 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 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 38 Reviews ÷ 13.4 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.

Beehive is a lovely place for my son to attend. The staff are really friendly and always have the best interests of the children at heart. I'm really impressed with the effort put in to the EYFS book and it's great to see and hear about what activities they get up to.

My son always looks forward to going to nursery and have made some great friends. He plays, eats and sleeps well there and is always happy when I arrive to pick him up and he tells me about his day.

Price is competitive with other local nurseries and I think it's great value for the quality of care and education.

My daughter started at the nursery aged 14 months and is now almost 3 years old. She has loved it and we have been pleased to see how much they have helped her to develop as well as looking after her. Her key worker is particularly wonderful. My daughter loves seeing her and chatters away to her. When you have to leave your children with other people, it's a huge relief when they look after them as if they were their own.

The staff at Beehive nursery have helped my son settle into the toddler room. They are always enthusiastic and very personable with him. He talks about the staff and the exciting things he has been doing. He loves yoga, going outside, reading, making biscuits and playing cars. They have helped develop his independence and confidence.

My daughter has been attending since she was 11 months old, now just turning 3 years old.
She has enjoyed her time there, she only attends one day a week so at times she has needed support to gain her confidence. The staff have all worked with her to feel comfortable, develop and gain confidence in interacting with her peers.

The staff are approachable and listen to and respond to our views and concerns as they arise.

I would be happy to recommend the nursery to others.

Since the takeover of the nursery, there has been a drive towards the improvement of facilities and the experience of the children and this has been well received.

I love Bright Horizons. My son is in the baby room as settled straight away. The staff are so loving and really look after him. Even when he is unwell. The scheduled activities are great including the external entertainment (singing and yoga).
My son has come on so much in his development which is great. I also love that the manager is friendly and approachable so different to other experiences I have had.

Our son started at Bright Horizons Kenilworth in March when I went back to work. He settled in really quickly and seems to love the two days each week he spends there. The ladies in the baby room are lovely and genuinely care for him. He has become a more confident little boy since starting at Bright Horizons Kenilworth.

Our daughter has attended Beehive for the past 18 months and we have been happy with the care she has received. Staff are friendly but professional and inform of any concerns, positives and any issues with regard to our child. They regularly keep us informed and I feel very confident leaving her in their care. Long staff retention rates reassure as does the bond between key worker and my daughter. The flexibility they have provided often at last minute is fantastic. Thank you Beehive (learning is excellent too).

My Daughter has been going to this nursery for a little over a year now.
She adores the staff and has made special bonds with them as well as some special friendships with the children there.
We have noticed how her language has developed drastically since being in the toddler room and she is coming home with new sentences each week.
From the start, we were reassured that our daughter's food allergy would be catered for and that her safety is paramount. The staff are very vigilant and follow procedures according to ensure she is safe but also able to be included at meal times. She often has the "same looking" food so that she does not feel left out.
The management are very helpful and responsive if we have an enquiry or concern and these are often dealt with quickly and effectively.
Our daughter loves singing and dancing and she particularly likes it when the music teacher comes with his guitar to do singing with them once a week.

A superb nursery which I would highly recommend. My daughter has been at Beehive since 11 months and loves it (now 2 years old). The staff are fantastic, so loving, caring and attentive with the children. The activities they provide are varied, fun and really help develop my daughter's skills, learning and capabilities. The food menu is interesting, well balanced and healthy. The nursery itself is clean, bright and spacious. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

Brilliant nursery. The staff in the pre-school and honeybees rooms are fantastic. They really know my children and I feel happy and confident leaving them. My children readily go to the staff into open arms, which for me, is the greatest compliment. They are both happy and content here. I love the feedback that I receive and really enjoy reading the comments in the books that they each have. No complaints at all.

My son has a brilliant time when he comes to nursery. The activities they do are amazing and I can see his development and his growth in confidence. I am completely confident and happy that all the staff look after my son and are always looking to develop his skills and knowledge. I am very happy with him attending nursery and really feel that they are supporting him to get him ready for school.

My son is in the pre-school room and always has a great time on the days he goes there. He enjoys the activities that the staff put on in the room and he also enjoys the people who came in from outside and the visits from the library bus. The nursery has lovely outdoor areas for the children to run around and a good selection of indoor toys too.

Our eldest son has been attending Beehive nursery since he was a baby. He is now in the preschool class and absolutely loves every day spent in the nursery. He has made a fantastic progress over past several months. Every day he surprises us with his ever-growing vocabulary, literacy and counting. He was initially very shy and it took him a long time to get to know people/other children. His confidence has grown considerably, mainly thanks to the gentle yet well-organised approach of all the staff in the nursery. He is generally quite a sensitive boy and always gets loads of cuddles from the staff.
He is very dairy intolerant, however, this was not a problem for the nursery. He gets meals that look the same as the other children's but are made with all dairy free ingredients.
The manager and room leaders are excellent at dealing with any problems or concerns. They are all highly professional and always on top of the game. Overall, we are very happy with the care Beehive nursery provides

Lovely, friendly, hard working staff whom I am very happy with.

I feel I am getting value for money and most importantly my kids are happy and settled.

Some of the staff in pre-school in particular are amazing - I like that in pre-school the kids are educationally stimulated along with play.

In Busy Bees, some of the staff, in particular one lady, are brilliant. She has really gotten to know my little boy as a person and as such gives me confidence that he is looked after.

The dedication of the Beehive staff and the thought that they put into the day to day activities as well as special events is very impressive. The recent Graduation Day was wonderful - very memorable for both children and parents. The gift bag given to each of the children was a lovely touch and a great memento for them.

New facilities and toys have recently been introduced raising the quality of the nursery even higher. My son loves the new toys and gave me a tour as soon as I arrived to pick him up. He was thrilled with the changes and was very excited. He really enjoys and is stimulated by the new equipment and the activities that flow from them. A lot of hard work went into the planning and changes in the Pre-School room.

The preparation for school has been excellent including school uniforms that the children could wear, getting used to a school register and a visit from his teacher and teaching assistant.

Beehive is going from strength to strength.

Our daughter loves going to nursery. She has flourished ever since starting. She is learning something new every day and it's so wonderful to see how she's developed. She loves the staff who look after her, they are always very caring and informative. The staff know her very well and will always give us in depth feedback.
The nursery is a lovely welcoming environment with plenty of activities going on. The current manager is very efficient in responding to queries and making us aware of events and any changes.

Our daughter has severe multiple food allergies and her needs and safety have been put first at all times. She often has to have different foods but the chef often makes foods that look similar but is safe for her to eat. Staff are qualified to administer her EpiPen if needed but the care and supervision has been outstanding that she has not been in contact with an allergen since starting.
Overall, I can't recommend the nursery enough, our daughter loves it and we do too.
