The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons East Barnet Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons East Barnet Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 14 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 4.533 for Bright Horizons East Barnet Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (74 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.533

  • 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 4.814 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons East Barnet Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 14 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.814

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

My son has attended this nursery from the age of 9 months and I am extremely happy with the service they have provided. The baby room staff were amazing with his care and feel they have helped him come out of his shell.

He has recently moved over to the toddler 2 room and again the staff have done an amazing job of settling him in. Overall, I am really happy with the care my son has been given.

My daughter started the nursery when she was only 9 months and we are very happy with her development. She is a very confident and happy little girl with a nice shaped personality. She always talks about the children and staff from the nursery and she is so excited to come in every single day. The staff are lovely, really welcoming and they have built a strong relationship not only with her, but they are always more than happy to involve us in all aspects of our daughter's development.

I am very happy with the changes of development of my child. She is very keen on going to nursery and she's enjoying her time there. I get to know lots of new songs thanks to her singing. However, I do see that she's getting a bit bored in her new group and that she's really enjoying pre-school.
Members of staff do look after kids very well and do report to me on her behaviour and development well.

It's a nice place for kids. They have lots of activities, however, I've found out kids are a bit upset and missing their parents. I think it's nicer if teachers help them and make them busy so they stop crying and it makes other kids happier as well.

My son has been at this nursery for three weeks and the staff have been lovely and helpful in settling him in. We had a personal tour of the nursery which was excellent. Staff were welcoming and very professional.
My son went to the deputy manager instantly, all staff said hello to him addressing him by his name. I would not hesitate in recommending this nursery to any prospective parents.

I am very happy with how my child has settled into her new room over the last couple of weeks, with support from the room leader and other staff in the room.

My little girl is beginning to potty train and all staff have really encouraged my child to do so and have been on board with this so thank you very much.

A huge thank you to the Toddler 1 room and to her previous key person, the room leader and other staff, you showed great tender loving care towards her and my child enjoyed coming to nursery to see you all, and still to this day she will say goodbye to you all on the way out - just shows the bond you have with her!

You have all been amazing, and she has learnt so much with you all, especially her previous key person.

I would recommend this nursery.

My son has been very happy, made lots of friends and also surprises me with lots of new things he has learnt e.g lots of songs, his ABC and much more.
I have always said about how good the food is here and the variety of food offered.

I would strongly recommend this nursery. All the staff are very friendly and have helped our son settle in well. He enjoys going to nursery and has lots of fun! The facilities are good with lots of time outside. We are particularly impressed with his current key worker, Laura. She has built a lovely bond with him and he is developing well.

My son is in preschool at nursery and he has been at Bright Horizons since he was 1. In every room, the staff have been brilliant and have made my son feel welcome and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and caring and my son adores his key worker. This is a testament to the hard work and effort of these amazing women. Thank you, Bright Horizons for taking such loving care of my child.

The nursery have looked after our daughter since she was six months old and the care has been superb. Our daughter absolutely loves being there and particularly the staff.
The food is excellent and the level of service to both children and parents is very, very good.
Highly recommended.
