Reviews

9.1 Crouch End Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.094)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Crouch End Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Crouch End Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.778 for Crouch End Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (140 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 4.316 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Crouch End Nursery and Preschool is based on 5 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 15.8 positive Reviews (79 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 15.8 Target = 0.316

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

I cannot praise this nursery and it's staff enough. It's quite daunting placing your children in the care of strangers, but everyone at Crouch End Nursery has become like family. My children have created wonderful memories and life long friendships there and I couldn't be happier for having chosen this nursery to care for my babies. Thank you for everything!

My daughter has been at Bright Horizons from being seven months old and she is now three. The nursery and the staff have played a key part in her development and have helped to raise a confident and outgoing little girl.

The nursery is at the top end price wise but you can understand why. The staff and the facilities justify the price and the outside space is far superior to any of the other nurseries in the area.

It isn't just the facilities, the staff make the nursery what it is.

Fantastic nursery with great staff. We are all very happy with the nursery!
My son has been in the baby room and toddlers room. We were happy with both rooms although at the beginning, in the baby room, we felt we had to say the same things more than once i.e. allergies. Nevertheless, overall our experience has been very good.
The only thing I would suggest would be to reduce the number of biscuits/ crackers and substitute with fruit.

My daughter loves the nursery. The staff really know the kids and care for them. The facilities are fantastic and calm, yet they allow for plenty of opportunities for the kids to learn and explore. All the staff, from the cook to the key persons and manager are very friendly and loving and always ready to help. I recommend Crouch End Nursery and Preschool to all my friends!

The Bright Horizon Nursery Team in Crouch Hill have been excellent with our daughter over the last 18 months. The staff have helped us develop our little girl's abilities and social skills as well as taking care of her throughout potty training, sickness and diet changes.

They have a great space both inside and out and the extra classes like Spanish and Amelia Boo are really terrific.

The management team are flexible and responsive and you can see why there is a waiting list for entry.

My daughter has blossomed since joining Bright Horizons in Crouch End. She has built some strong friendships and does all sorts of fun, messy and stimulating things which I wouldn't dream of doing with her. I am extremely happy with the standard of care, the facilities and the activities which she does. A great nursery with excellent staff.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Crouch End Nursery and Preschool responded to this review on 12 Jan 2016:

Thank you for your positive feedback.

This nursery is excellent. We spent a lot of time looking at nurseries and this is by far the best. Our daughter is extremely happy there and is learning so much. We could not feel more comfortable leaving her with anyone outside of the family than we do when we drop her off here. Admittedly, some staff are less experienced and less confident when dealing with parents, but the more senior staff are excellent. Our daughter has developed great relationships with staff there. They have been very good at implementing our child's specific needs.

Fantastic. I simple love this nursery, both my boys attend and they really enjoy their time here. The staff are very friendly and likable, the setting is well thought out with plenty of space and a wonderfully big garden (this is what sold it to us, there are not many nurseries in London that have such great outdoor space and use it). The educational set up at Bright Horizons is really well structured, a good balance of fun, practical hands experience along with more academic style learning and excellent facilities. This is also supported with great extra activities such as Spanish and tennis sessions which go down really well with my eldest. Communication is crucial for me and here it is exceptionally good with concise weekly memos from senior level through to each child's daily updates and keyworker/mentor stage development reports , I always know what is happening within the nursery and with each of my children. Mealtimes are another important issue and it's well catered for with plenty of choice and variety.

Crouch end nursery is a safe, welcoming, nurturing and fun environment that supports all.

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are delighted to hear that you are happy with the level of care our nursery provides.

I am very happy with Bright Horizons nursery, My daughter is very happy and I feel she gets the right balance of learning/care and discipline from the staff. I like the daily updates at the end of the day and also found her 6 month review really interesting and made me aware of the stages of teaching. The communication between parent and nursery are great. Plus the nursery and facilities are way above average!

Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We proud ourselves in offering high standard of care.

My son has been at Crouch End Nursery and Preschool for one year and absolutely loves it. The staff are really good and friendly and have formed a good bond with him. There is the right degree of mixing technology with messy play/outdoor fun/creative staff and learning. We were one of the first to sign up to the nursery on the basis of their staff/food offering/hours of operation/security/new facilities and collected experience of the Bright Horizons organisations. We've never even remotely regretted it, even if it was the most expensive of the other 3 we looked at.
