Reviews

8.1 Bright Horizons Wokingham Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.092)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Wokingham 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Wokingham Day Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 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 4.705 for Bright Horizons Wokingham Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.705

  • 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 3.387 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons Wokingham Day Nursery and Preschool 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.137

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

We currently use the nursery for my daughter who is two years old. She has attended for the last year and we wouldn't dream of having her anywhere else. The environment is a loving and caring one where the staff show genuine interest in our daughter's development. It is a good nursery with fantastic staff which has seen our daughter develop into a fun loving and confident girl. Thank you.

I have a son at the nursery and my daughter previously attended from 9 months old until she left for school in September. Both my children have thoroughly enjoyed attending nursery, my son still. They happily go in every morning, have a great relationship with the staff and love learning through play. The staff are enthusiastic; caring and I find share similar values to those we do. The support and guidance the nursery offer is great.
I also love the feeling of self-worth they have helped give my children. My daughter's first report from school was that she was ahead of the game - a report that the nurseries support and teaching has helped her achieve.

My daughter attends the nursery one day a week and has come on leaps and bounds since starting. She loves her nursery friends and all of the staff there. The staff are always lovely and quite clearly have the children's best interests at heart. Would highly recommend!

My son is nearly 4 and has been coming to Bright Horizon's Wokingham Day Nursery and Preschool since he was nearly 1. All staff are friendly and welcoming and made him feel settled as soon as we walked in. During the first few classes, they explained what he'd been doing all day, what meals he had or hadn't eaten etc. and every day when I collected him, he wanted to stay longer!! Now he is in one of the older classes, he gets to tell me how his day went and what he has eaten and the board shows what stage of development they are concentrating on this week/month etc. They also have 'helper of the day' which the kids seem to love.

He is so happy here and loves rushing in to see his friends and the staff. He loves taking in a book to read in class too.

The nursery offers additional activities for the kids to join in with (some at cost) - my son thoroughly enjoys Teddy Tennis, Jo Jingles, and Coach Brian's sporting activities. The nursery are also starting language classes which we are definitely interested in doing.

My daughter has recently started at the nursery and so far the staff have been very friendly and welcoming. The security of the nursery is very good and it has a good feel to it.
The children do lots of activities and have a varied menu.

My son only goes 2 days a week, but all staff have gone out of their way to help settle him in and adapt to his needs, as he needs a little more help with certain things due to being severely premature and being behind other toddlers his age. They are friendly and welcoming and after being very anxious about leaving him, I feel he is safe and well cared for on the days that he is there.

My Daughter is new to the nursery and has been very settled since day one, she has made some lovely bonds with the staff team who cater for all of her needs. On arrival, they are waiting for her and have breakfast ready which is lovely considering we travel half an hour to get to the nursery every morning.
They are very informative about what my daughter has been doing throughout the day and is very happy when I collect.

Jackie Rumbold

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2013

Description:

My name is Jackie and I am the proud Nursery Manager of Bright Horizons Wokingham! I have worked for Bright Horizons for just over 9 years working hard to enhance my knowledge and skills to progress from a Nursery Assistant through to a Nursery Manager. I have managed three nurseries during this time and have supported two of these through a Good Ofsted inspection. One of my proudest career moments so far was to have received the Special Recognition award from Bright Horizons in 2013.

I completed my Foundation Degree in 2012 achieving my NVQ Level 5, but have been unable to continue my studies at present due to the fact that I now have a young daughter keeping me on my toes. I am in the fortunate position of leading the care and education that my baby receives and am honoured to do the same for all of the children in the nursery.

Description:

My name is Penny and I have been a Deputy Nursery Manager for Bright Horizons since 2014. I joined BH Wokingham in 2016. I have lots of childcare experience from working in nurseries to being a nanny and have been qualified since 1999.

I have worked in two other Bright Horizons nurseries and having left the organisation for a few weeks in Summer 2016 I very quickly realised that this is the company for me and came right back! We have a great team here at Wokingham and being alongside them and our wonderful children makes for a lovely work place!
