Reviews

9.7 Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.705)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Englefield Green 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 43 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 14 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 4.733 for Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (386 Excellents x 5) + (117 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 513 Ratings = 4.733

  • 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 4.972 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool is based on 14 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.972

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

Our daughter has been going to Englefield Green Nursery Preschool for a year and a half now and she could not enjoy it more. The staff is extremely attentive and absolutely caring. The relatively low number of children per key workers means that everyone gets all the attention they need!

I had to start working really early on after my son was born. I was very nervous to leave him at 6 months old at a nursery. I found in the Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool a safety port that I felt comfortable about living my son while I was at work.

I visited several nurseries and the staff, as well as the environment of this nursery, which made me feel that my son wouldn't be in better hands. They are very attentive to his needs, very quick in detecting if something is wrong with him and very good at helping him develop well. Also, the outdoor space in this nursery is amazing and they use it constantly.

Finally, the fact that every morning my, now 9-month-old son, squeals of joy and gives me the biggest smile ever every time he realises we are arriving at the nursery gate, says it all.

Very satisfied with our experience with the nursery. Our daughter comes home from school extremely happy with lots of stories to tell. She always tells us how fun it is at school and how great her key person is.
Their food is of great variety. Some staff just need to be more friendly and accommodating.

Our daughter started nursery when she was 4.5 months old. She has always been happy to go to the nursery. The nursery feels homely and the staff are great. They were really supportive when at the beginning our daughter was refusing to drink from the bottle. They did everything they could and in 2 weeks, she was back drinking her milk from the bottle. We love to see how stimulated she is there and how happy she is every morning when she arrives at the nursery and sees the staff and all her little friends. We also really appreciate the feedback that the staff give us at the end of the day, when we learn about what she's done, ate etc. We would recommend this nursery to every parent.

We are delighted with our decision to choose Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool for our daughter's nursery, who joined at 10months, nearly a year ago. It is such a bright friendly place, safely tucked away amongst trees - I love that the sound of birds greets you.

The care and fun that she has experienced in her first year we are grateful for since it is more than we hoped for. Her key person, Jade is so knowledgeable, caring and such a joy. In fact, all of the team looking after the Piglets are brilliant.

My daughter has blossomed here she has really come out of her shell and loves attending. The staff are great and really get to know each child individually. There is great communication between the nursery and home. They currently have baby chicks which are hatching and the children love watching and learning more about them. The food is also amazing!!! Fantastic outside space and staff who are excited about the activities and learning they do with the children.

Our daughter has been at this nursery for two years since she was 8 months old. She loves it there and comes home each day happy and tired from a busy day! There is such a lovely atmosphere at the nursery and the people who work there clearly love spending time with the children and really care. I love that they eat food that is cooked fresh at the nursery each day and then spend lots of time playing out in the garden.

This nursery is absolutely fantastic, we are so pleased we picked it for our son. Everyone there is really helpful and they are always happy to chat to you. We love hearing what he has been doing all day. The girls who look after our son are amazing and he has really settled in well. He eats everything and we are so impressed by the care and team work that the nursery displays in looking after all the children.

Since my daughter began attending the Nursery in December, she has grown in confidence. Siya is much more social and not as clingy to me. When I drop her off, she gets upset but the staff quickly tend to her and by the time I have left the gates, she is smiling. The staff are always friendly and willing to help.

My son has attended this nursery since he was 11 months, he is now nearly 3 years and enjoys his sessions at nursery every week.
The staff are very caring and easy to talk to, giving verbal and written feedback every week/ session.
Healthy snacks and meals are provided, which my son loves more than my cooking!
The nursery is also very clean and never has that "grubby toy" smell.

We have recently enrolled our 2year old at this nursery and after much anxiety and stressing about 'leaving' him, I can honestly say that there was nothing to worry about.
The AMAZING staff at Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool reassured me from day one and have officially put my mind at ease. They are professional yet also have that personal touch aspect. After visiting a number of nurseries trying to find the right one for us, I cannot find fault with this one, I really can't recommend this nursery enough. Thank you

Englefield Green Bright Horizons is the best nursery I have seen so far. Like every mother, I was concerned of leaving my daughter all day at the nursery but she absolutely loves it!! I only have to say "Thank you" to the professional, lovely and friendly staff who every day make sure that nothing is missed or underestimated and that all the kids are happy, safe and healthy.

Our daughter has been attending Englefield Green since I returned to work. She has just had her first birthday and is enjoying her time in the nursery room. I am impressed at a number of activities, learning opportunities and overall care of her. The staff are hard-working, friendly and most importantly bond well with her. She comes home from nursery very contented.

When having to return to work quickly, I found this nursery who were very accommodating and understanding of the situation. I went in one week and by the next week my daughter was on her settling in sessions. The staff are very supportive with these and help your child settle in straight away. My daughter always comes home smiling.

My daughter joined the Englefield Green Nursery after being with a childminder for 9 months. She has been going to the nursery for 4 months now and loves it. When she joined she was made to feel very comfortable and welcome and the staff helped her to settle into the bigger environment and were great on those teary drop-offs. Since then she has formed a really strong bond with her key worker and her speech is starting to develop well. The food that I have seen is excellent and my daughter seems to finish it all off each day - the staff even treat my son to a homemade biscuit or cake if we collect at afternoon snack time. I find the staff to be extremely friendly and all the staff in the room are able to talk about my daughter's day when I collect her. I think the nursery itself is excellent and particularly like the fact that each age group room has their own dedicated outside space.

My son really enjoys the nursery and has many friends. I know he likes the staff as well as he's pleased to see them in the morning. His favourite activities are anything outside and he gets lots of opportunities to play in the garden. He enjoys baking and art as well and surprises us at home with songs he has learnt and even trying to count to 10.

The staff at the nursery have been fantastic from day one. They have a fantastic settling in programme that is reassuring for the parents as well as the children. They are very focused on the children's development with books to track progress. The activities are very inventive and fun, I like to hear what my son has been up to during the day. The chef at the nursery is brilliant and cooks a very varied nutritious menu that caters for any allergies. Overall I feel very lucky to have found such a fantastic nursery with amazing, caring staff.

Before my son started nursery he could not speak properly. Bright Horizons has made a big difference in his life. My son is such an intelligent little boy and that is down to the nursery.
The nursery has helped with his behaviour. He has also started to eat meat which he didn't at home. I would highly recommend Bright Horizons to friends and family.

I highly recommend Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool. My oldest child has been there for two years (age 2-4) and is now about to go off to school. She has been in the 3-5 room her whole time, and has been part of the nursery class this year. My youngest child has been there for a year and a half (age 10 months to 2 years 4 months). He has been in the in the baby room (0-2) and is now in the 2-3 room.

They both love the environment, the staff and the other children. I trust the staff implicitly to look after and educate them. The care provided is wonderful and the staff make a big effort to keep me informed of their progress and how their day was. The food provided is always of high quality and they usually have seconds (and sometimes thirds!). The management of the nursery is brilliant. I always get the information I need and very promptly. All the staff at the nursery - across all the rooms - are friendly, knowledgeable and kind. I honestly couldn't recommend the nursery more highly, it's been a wonderful place for my daughter and son.

We have been very impressed by this nursery. The staff are always positive, friendly and helpful and take very good care of my child. They were able to answer all of my (many!) questions when choosing a nursery, and had an excellent settling-in programme. My son enjoys his time at nursery and I can go to work confident that he's being well looked after.

The nursery has looked after my daughter since she was 1. She is now nearly 3. They have done an excellent job caring for her through many stages of development in the last 2 years. The staff are great, caring and professional. My daughter loves nursery and now preschool. Fantastic transition plans from year to year.

My son recently moved up a room which he managed without a problem. All the staff helped with the transition and are always answering any questions. Any problems (to which there are few) are dealt with in a prompt manor. My son loves all the activities that he does at nursery mainly Forest School. The menus varied and if they are allergic to anything provisions are made.

We moved our children from a private nursery to a 'chain' nursery - Bright Horizons. The management staff are very professional, they have policies and procedures which are followed. This gives me peace of mind compared to my children's last nursery.
The staff at Bright Horizons are lovely and my girls come home happy every time they are here. The manager is brilliant, if you have any issues/concerns they are dealt with professionally. Excellent day care provider!
