The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for New Foundations Day Nursery (Bexleyheath) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for New Foundations Day Nursery (Bexleyheath) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 22 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 4.881 for New Foundations Day Nursery (Bexleyheath) is calculated as follows: ( (274 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 311 Ratings = 4.881

  • 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 New Foundations Day Nursery (Bexleyheath) is based on 22 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 22 Reviews ÷ 5.8 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.

We had our son in this nursery for nearly 2 years now, from baby room to toddler room and this summer he will be ready for the pre-school room. We are extremely happy with all aspects of care given. All carers are lovely and well-skilled. Every morning, the nursery prepare 2-3 different activities on the table, children can choose which one they want to play before breakfast, they never get bored! My son loves the nursery and every day comes home with a big smile on the face. He always takes home "souvenirs" of the day: a painting, a spaceship hat, a cookie, bottle of magic water, and so on. My baby doesn't lie, his face truly shows he had a great time and loves staying there from his heart. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for your kind feedback.

My 9-month-old son has recently started here 1 day a week and I could not have asked for a more friendly environment that made me feel at ease from the moment I came and had a look round. The staff (not just the classroom staff) are all so caring, warm and friendly and they make his day fun so he comes home full of beans and on a high.
They welcomed my phone calls and the million and one questions I asked as leaving a child for the first time (as any mother would tell you) is daunting, but they put my mind to rest and now I love dropping him off to play with all of his friends.
I would recommend this nursery not just for the staff, bus also for the various resources which can all been seen in the classrooms so parents can see what toys the children have to play with and also for the well-equipped garden area where all children including the little ones get a turn to play.

Thank you for your kind words.

I have no qualms at all about leaving my children in the care of the employees at New Foundations Day Nursery. They are nurturing, professional and dedicated and all of them seem to genuinely love their jobs and the children in their charge. My children are excited to go to nursery. My husband is a deputy head at a primary school and is impressed by the standards employed at the nursery.

Since my son started a few months back, he has come a long way in everything he does.

Thank you for your kind words, they are greatly received

My daughter has only just started at the nursery, but I couldn't be happier with the warmth and friendliness shown by all the staff.
It is hard for me to leave my daughter, but they have made it so much easier. I know she is in good hands there.
I was really happy with the amount of settling in sessions my daughter was offered. These were at different times of the day so she could get used to experiencing different activities.
I have nothing but praise for the nursery and the staff.

They really look after my son, he loves going and has made many friends, he started full time at 6 months and has really developed with the support of the nursery nurses.
I have never had any issues. They cater for his dietary requirements and have fully supported the challenges I have had with special milk and eating.

Many thanks for your kind words

We love our daughter's nursery. She was one when she started in May 2016 and the team very quickly built trust and rapport with her and settled her into a great feeding and sleeping routine.
Our daughter has so much fun there every day, the team really make an effort to set up a variety of art and play activities. She particularly loves the messy play and the great outdoor play garden.
It's a small nursery with a family/community feel. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming and they go the extra mile. For example, they made lovely Christmas gifts for the parents with the children and are flexible wherever they can be when our daughter is ill or we need to change care days.
Would highly recommend this nursery.

Many thanks for your kind words

As a family, we have been using New Foundations for the last 6 years, firstly with my daughter and now with my son. Although some of the staff have changed, the ethos and feel of the nursery hasn't changed.
My son absolutely loves going to New Foundations and has a great relationship with all the staff. He has made friends with the other children as well.
The nursery has worked well with us as parents with every area of his development from the age of 1 to the present day (he is now 3).
They dealt with his food intolerances and eczema brilliantly - nothing is ever too much trouble.
I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough!

New Foundations Day Nursery, Bexleyheath is a wonderful nursery.
My youngest daughter currently attends the Pre-School and she thoroughly enjoys her time there, and I must say she is learning absolutely loads including phonics and Spanish, she is only 3.
My eldest daughter also attended NFDN from 2010, until she started reception at infant school.
I would highly recommend NFDN Bexleyheath to any parent who needs daycare.
The staff are amazing and will go out of their way to make sure that your child has the best care possible.

Thank you for your feedback and kind words.

My daughter was very unsettled in the first week or so, as expected with a new routine, however, the staff put me at ease and now she loves it. All the staff are excellent and made me feel confident going back to work knowing she is going to be well looked after and have a fun day in a smaller family type environment.
I'm told she barely leaves any food so it must be good!

I'm very happy with the nursery, my son settled in quickly in the baby room and is very happy during drop off's and pick up's.
They took fantastic care of him when he fell ill once, so I'm confident he's in good hands. He has grown independent and confident in the time he has spent in the nursery. He has made good friends and loves the members of staff who are very affectionate and caring.

Both of my boys have attended New Foundations Day Nursery and I couldn't be happier with the care they have received. The staff are friendly, caring, fun, informative and understanding. My youngest started a year ago and he loves it there, he adores the staff and the activities during the day. The food is varied and healthy. I also really appreciate the way the staff really assist in trying to wean my son off his dummy, it's great to feel supported by them. I am so pleased my boys have attended here. My eldest is at school now but the preschool section at New Foundations Day Nursery set him up so well for school, he went to school knowing much more reading, writing and phonics than many other of the children.

My son has been attending the nursery since October 2015, he loves and and so do I. They are always happy to answer any questions I have about his development or about how his day has been. I recently attended a parents evening which I think is a fantastic idea, I had time to look at all of his observations and speak with his key worker.

Since joining the nursery my daughter has learnt many new skills, numbers, letters, colours etc.
She is allergic to gluten, the staff have gone above and beyond to cater for my daughter and make her feel like she's having a special meal, she actually is happier that she gets her special food! I have no faults with the nursery, it feels safe and I'm more than happy to leave my daughter here, she never cries and I always collect a happy child who tells me about all the fun and learning she did at "school". When she was toilet training they even helped with that. Any issues that I've needed help with have been met with kindness and understanding, currently my daughter is in the preschool and learning Spanish!
I believe this to be one of the best nurseries in the area and would 100% recommend this nursery to parents looking at nursery there open most of the year even when schools have there breaks and shut at 6pm at night!

New Foundations Day Nursery (Bexleyheath) provides a lovely setting for children of early years ages to start their education, my little boy looks forward to meeting his friends and staff each week. There are plenty of friendly experienced staff on hand and they always seem to be doing something new with the kids which really expands their minds and when the weather allows they are encouraged to go outside and play. The kids are given a lot of freedom to express themselves and there are adequate controls in place to ensure they learn some discipline too. The food is of a good quality and the menu varied my little boy even eats the fish pie which I didn't think he would!

This is a fun safe nursery where you can leave you child in the confidence they will be well looked after.

My daughter started New Foundations Day Nursery in Bluebell Room (babies) and progressed through Sunflower Room (toddlers) to preschool.
It has felt like a second home for so long, we will both miss attending terribly once school starts this September.
The care and nurturing environment at NFDN has given my daughter an excellent start to her learning journey.
She has been encouraged and praised at each stage, to enable her to develop into the kind, caring, bright, confident and funny little girl she is today. She is more than well equipped to start the next stage of her development and learning at school. I have no doubt that the care, understanding and commitment of staff at NFDN contributed greatly.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend NFDN to any parent, it is a fantastic nursery with enthusiastic and caring staff who are dedicated to ensuring the nursery is a positive environment for each child and one where they are encouraged to reach their full potential.
