Reviews

9 Active Learning Chiswick (London) has a Review Score of 9 (9.033)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Active Learning Chiswick (London) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Active Learning Chiswick (London) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.631 for Active Learning Chiswick (London) is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.631

  • 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 4.402 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Active Learning Chiswick (London) is based on 7 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 17.4 positive Reviews (87 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 17.4 Target = 0.402

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

I have had two children at the nursery since autumn 2015 and between them, they've been through all the rooms from Babies to Preschool. We are extremely happy with the nursery.

The staff are dedicated and keen and provide a really broad range of expertise (sport, music, art, languages). Most importantly of all, they provide a caring and cheery environment and both children love going there. One thing I really like is that occasionally the carers swap between rooms (and the management team are hands-on too) which means there's a real sense of community - much more so than other nurseries I've known.

The building is spacious, bright and airy, and the different rooms are very well designed for the different age groups. The outdoor space is great, with an enclosed garden and access to the huge sports fields. Access is really easy too, with a buggy park and a car park for drop off and pick up.

Having 3 children, we've certainly been to a few nurseries. I have to say that by far Active Learning in Chiswick has superseded all the others. Great team, that stay!!! Management is very hands on and I love how they really know all the children and their development. The days are varied and activities are very educational. Lovely food too and my son is just so happy there. 5 stars from me!!!

I have been an Active Learning parent since November 2013 and my children have progressed through the different rooms on the Chiswick site. I have always found the set-up very warm and welcoming. The staff are very caring towards all the children and are happy to support any special circumstances that need to be considered. The outdoor space and opportunities to use the next door sports fields are fantastic. Overall the children are very happy there and I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to any prospective parents.

Our 1-year-old daughter has been at the nursery for a month and it has been a very good experience so far. The staff are very friendly caring and knowledgeable. The nursery is very light and has a nice atmosphere. We get daily updates on our daughter's progress. It would be nice if our daughter has the same key person every day but this doesn't seem possible. However, we are overall happy and impressed.

My son has been attending Active Learning Chiswick since he was 9 months old and I have always had complete confidence and comfort knowing he is bring looked after by genuine caring, supportive and well-trained staff. The retention of staff at Active Learning has been exceptional and this forms a stable environment for the children. My son has developed into a happy, confident kind and generally a well-behaved boy and I credit a lot of this to the fabulous staff and carers. I would not hesitate to recommend Active Learning Chiswick.

This is by far the best nursery in and around the Chiswick area. As a teacher at a local school, I hear feedback from parents about the different nurseries. After viewing a few popular ones, we thought most of them were good but felt as if we were going to have to 'settle' for the best of the lot.... till we visited this place! When we were shown round, what struck me was how settled and calm the babies and toddlers were, even those who had just woken up. The rooms were clean despite having sand areas. When our son went for his settling in days, he only cried for a few minutes during the first hour and has since absolutely loved the place. The staff genuinely love children, and this is very clear. He now runs eagerly into the nursery every morning and isn't tearful or desperate to leave when I arrive to pick him up. He adores all the staff and so do we. I am thankful that it has made going back to work so seamless for me and I know that my child is in the best care I could ask for.

Job Title: Nursery Manager

Joined: 2017

Description:

I have worked with children since 2009. I started my career with the UK’s largest childcare social enterprise (London Early Years Foundation) as an apprentice. I had initially planned to complete my level three qualification to meet university entry requirements the following summer. After nine months I was enjoying my role as an apprentice and that I had the skills needed to support the nursery as a full time qualified practitioner. December of 2010 I was qualified and the newly appointed baby room practitioner. Working in a baby room was a great opportunity for me to develop my partnerships with parents and help provide a positive start to each child’s nursery journey. In 2012 I was promoted to deputy manager. I developed further over the next couple of years becoming the youngest manager in my organisations history (Over 103 years old). Within 4 months of my promotion I was also one of the first managers to achieve an OUTSTANDING Ofsted rating and still the youngest in my organisations history.
In the two years following this I supported several other settings though OFSTED and challenges alongside my own role as a manager of my nursery. By this point in my career I felt I needed more challenges and needed something to work towards, I joined university part time and I have just started my third year studying for my BA in Educational Psychology.
I’m thrilled to join Bright Horizons and excited about the development of my new nursery and how we can push ourselves to be OUTSTANDING every day, I’m excited to meet new people and learn new skills, and most of all I am excited by the sheer size and amount of opportunities Bright Horizons offers. I’m really looking forward to working with everyone and sharing our skills, experience and best practice.
