Reviews

9.6 Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Brondesbury Park has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.609)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Brondesbury Park 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 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Brondesbury Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.609 for Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Brondesbury Park is calculated as follows: ( (148 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 215 Ratings = 4.609

  • 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 Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Brondesbury Park is based on 16 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 6.8 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.

My child has always been excited to go to nursery and is happy when she gets home, that is all that matters! The staff are always very welcoming and easy to talk to. It is also very handy that they are based alongside a gym!

Out daughter has been attending the nursery for over 2 years now. I can truly say that the nursery has become our daughter's second home.
We had initial teething problems when we first started the nursery, but the Manager would immediately look into the issues and dealt with them promptly and implementing any necessary actions.
She enjoys freshly cooked food made by the nursery chef in the onsite kitchen.
The nursery is housed within the gym, so the children can enjoy classes of Yoga and swimming lessons too.
Recently the nursery has offered extended hours and this is great for working parents.
The nursery staff are all well qualified and provide regular updates on your child's development.
Over the 2 years, through the staff and management's care we know that our daughter is happy, infact some days does not want to come home !!:)

We would highly recommend Nuffy Bear Nursery. Our daughter started when she was 6 months old and is now 2 and a half. Nuffy Bear has truly become an extension of our family and we are looking forward to having our second daughter attending soon. The quality, care and dedication of the entire team and the variety of activities and learning are what makes this place a top quality nursery. Nutritious meals are prepared daily by an on-site chef and every week, the kids are baking/cooking. Our daughter is happy, healthy, making friends and learning so much.

Our kid loves going to Nuffy Bear! The staff is friendly, loving but also professional. I like the fact that they offer a wide range of activities to the kids both inside and outside: There is a lot of messy play with paint, home made play dough, sand and other materials, outings, active learning with age specific toys.
The only downside is that they are quite strict with when your kid is not well but understandable as they want to avoid spreading any bug around the nursery.

We love this nursery and are very happy that our child is there. The only thing that lets it down a bit is the lack of outside space! The staff are lovely and the management really cares about the kids, works hard and is effective - there have been quite a few new initiatives over the last year.

I'd highly recommend Nuffy Bear Day Nursery Brondesbury Park to my family and friends. Our son and daughter have been there since they were 2.5 and 10 months old, they attended a different nursery prior to that. We were so impressed at our first visit by the staff, cleanliness, range of wooden toys and activities, and the baby room is set up like a comfortable home. In the toddler and pre-school rooms, they have well planned stimulating, fun and learning activities balanced with exercise (yoga and swimming) and plenty of time in the studio to play, ride and dance. Food is especially good, great variety and focus on healthy nutritious meals, they also have cookery classes for the kids every week. For peace of mind, safety and security measures are very good, and staff provide a good and always friendly handover at pick up. My kids are happy, confident and their independence is growing, I'm extremely happy too!

Nuffy Bear has truly become an extension of our family over the last three years and counting. A few of the staff have come and gone, but much more have remained. This stability, the dedication of the entire team, the security, the variety of age-appropriate activities and learning are what make this place a top quality nursery. Nutritious meals are prepared daily by an on-site chef and they are as tasty as they sound on the rotating lunch and tea menus! Our children seem happy, healthy, making friends and they are learning so much at Nuffy Bear Brondesbury Park.

We are very happy with this nursery, which is run by an enthusiastic and approachable manager and team of staff. Our child is offered a variety of activities including swimming, yoga and cookery classes. Children are able to take advantage of the attached gymnasiums dance studios also and there is a real community feel in the nursery generally.

Our experience of Nuffy Bear Nursery has always been a positive one. Both my children have gone there and they have always enjoyed it. The staff are helpful, informative and available at all times. I recommended other members of my family that they send their children there too which they have done. I work, which means I miss out on some valuable times with my children but I feel that they have been very well educated at Nuffy Bear and I am always pleased to see them progress with numbers, words, toilet training etc. It puts my mind at rest that they are being very well looked after when I am at work. I like that Nuffy Bear is part of the health centre. It means they make use of the swimming pool and the studios for yoga and other activities. All in all, I feel it was a very good decision to send both my children to Nuffy Bear. It's given them a great start in experiencing the outside world and making friends.

Thank you!

I absolutely love everything and everyone involved at Nuffy Bear. I was so worried about returning to work after my maternity leave and starting my daughter at nursery but she has developed and grown so much since being there. The staff genuinely love her and my daughter loves them, I couldn't ask for better people to look after her while I'm at work. This nursery is amazing and I consider myself lucky to say that my daughter goes here.

I have been so happy with this nursery - all the staff are brilliant and put me at ease leaving my little girl when I had to go back to work at 10 months.
She always has fun and they always listened to my thoughts or wishes.
At Christmas, I got a bag of all her little creations of art and messy play she had made.
The menu is always varied and my little girl enjoys her food at nursery.
It's not the biggest nursery but I like that they can use the gym studio and big field outside. I very much chose it as it has a warm homely feeling.
A few weeks ago they had a drop in on Saturday morning and we went and did messy play and it was brilliant - there were new parents there and I was highly recommending it to them.

Our daughter has been at Nuffy Bear Day Nursery since she was 9 months old (she is now 4 years old). She is a very happy, healthy and confident child who loves the activities provided by the nursery such as swimming, yoga, playing in the dance studio and the outdoor play area. The management and staff are excellent and I am very grateful to them making my return to work so much easier.
I highly recommend it! It is a friendly, flexible and professional place to have your child.

We chose the nursery for our daughter after having been impressed with the manager and staff on a visit when I was 8 months pregnant. My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 13 months, and is now nearly 4.
The staff are great with the children, keeping them engaged, involved and entertained at all times. The nursery has grown and evolved a lot in the last 3 years with new activities introduced for the children - from swimming lessons to yoga classes. My daughter has a great time each day. I feel informed as a parent as the staff give comprehensive feedback and the manager is always available for a chat and to help you feel reassured about your child's progress.
A lot of my daughter's development with key skills such as potty training, writing, eating independently and wanting to help out with household chores is all thanks to the nursery.
The only drawback is the outside space is small - but this is a common theme with London nurseries.

Both our girls go to Nuffy Bear Nursery and love it. Our eldest has been going there since she was 1 years old and she was so happy there (and we were so happy with the nursery) that we sent our youngest from the age of 1 too. The thing that really stands out for us is the care and attention that the staff give the children. As it is quite a small nursery - all the staff know each of the children and all the staff are so kind and wonderful with all of them. They do a range of activities with the children and my girls always come home tired and happy! They have a wonderful chef and they have healthy meals. The head teacher is amazing - she is so responsive and helpful with any questions or concerns and always makes herself available to chat or answer emails. I would definitely recommend Nuffy Bear - its a lovely friendly and warm environment and I go to work each day knowing my girls are having fun and most importantly being given the care and attention that I want for them.

I am very grateful for all the hard work and effort they made to support my boy who had a speech delay. Due to speech delay, my little one was very frustrated which resulted in lots of tantrums! They took the time to write up an individual plan for him and action it! They also worked with the external speech and language therapists who were who were able to share tips like which activities would help him. Nuffy Bear didn't just stop when my child left the nursery and started school in January 2017, they arranged to meet with his new school to give them lots of information, tips and forwarded all his reports and plans which meant I didn't have to start all over again! They definitely gave him a good start in life.

The Nuffy Bear Day Nursery at Brondesbury Park is a wonderful place for my son to grow up since he was 11 months old.

They have a wonderful number of activities as swimming, yoga, bakery and other exercises so the kids also develop themselves physically while having lots of fun.

They teach the kids playing, so the kids enjoy learning new things daily; when I access the rooms, I can see that they have lots of fun learning.

The team is really nice, always smiling and I always know what my little one has been doing while I'm working so I don't miss his new achievements.

My son is a particular eater and when he is in the nursery he eats very well and also tries many different dishes that I wouldn't know how to introduce to him at home.

The best way to know that this is the right place for my son, it's when I pick him up and he has a huge smile on his face and he doesn't stop talking about his teachers and friends at nursery. His reaction shows me that we chose the right place.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 11 months. It is always difficult when the time comes to leave your child in care of others. The nursery made every effort to make this transition seamless and positive. My daughter is now over 2. She loves the nursery and looks forward to going in every day. My daughter has made many friends and has learnt so many new skills which make her happy and confident. We are pleasantly surprised on a daily basis! The staff are fantastic, very supportive, knowledgeable and caring. Nothing is ever too much effort. The facilities are great too. Being part of a health club, there is a lot of space for various extra activities, including yoga, swimming, playing in the studio and garden. I often recommend Nuffy Bear to friends and family.
