With over 30 years’ experience in building and designing nurseries, Bright Horizons Family Solutions is delighted to announce the opening of a new, purpose-built nursery in Greenwich in February 2017.

Located on Lovibond Lane within the new residential development ‘The Movement’, the nursery is conveniently located for commuting parents. It offers five individual home-bases tailored to each age group, with a lovely external play area where the children can flourish and explore while building a lifelong love of learning.

Bright Horizons’ carefully selected nursery staff team lead the children through a range of educational activities, nurturing each child’s imagination and helping them to develop and learn in a warm and friendly environment. For babies and toddlers they create a safe world, rich with opportunities to actively explore, with books, songs, and lots of listening and responding to their vocalisations and words.

For pre-schoolers, Bright Horizons have created bespoke Ready for School Programmes which prepare children for the next steps on their learning journey. These programmes include Growing Readers, Growing Writers, Growing Mathematicians, Active Athletes, Cookery Club and Gardening Club.

Food is freshly cooked by an on-site chef and extra-curricular activities include French classes and Theatre Bugs.

The fees are fully inclusive, which means they provide all food, drinks, nappies and formula milk for the babies and children in their care.

Reviews

9.5 Bright Horizons Greenwich Day Nursery and Preschool has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.459)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons Greenwich Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons Greenwich Day Nursery and Preschool 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 4.459 for Bright Horizons Greenwich Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 185 Ratings = 4.459

  • 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 Bright Horizons Greenwich Day Nursery and Preschool 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 12.2 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.

Our daughter has settled in amazingly at nursery - we are so happy. We believe this is down to the positive relationships she has with all staff particularly her key workers. It is always nice to hear the lovely comments they make about our daughter's progress, showing they genuinely care.

My 15-month-old son loves Bright Horizons Greenwich Day Nursery and Preschool. He's attended the nursery since it opened in February and is really happy here. The staff are wonderful - infinitely patient, caring, kind, fun and genuinely fond of the kids in their care. The facilities are great and staff organise lots of messy play which means we don't have to get sand, water and paint all over the house! We've been very impressed with the quality of food - my son always eats everything and often wants second helping! The management team are approachable and communicate well with parents. Highly recommended.

Greenwich Day Nursery is a new nursery opened in January 2017. The delays in opening caused a significant amount of disruption to my return to work following maternity leave. However, the manager and her team have been very communicative and did a great job in supporting my then 12-month-old and me during her settling in period. She is engaged in activities, well fed, always clean and dry and she seems happy in the nursery setting. Her key workers and carers are good and baby likes them. There are a couple of minor issues which I've raised but they have been dealt with satisfactorily. Allergies were catered for. On the whole, I would recommend the nursery to friends.

I initially had concerns with this nursery being brand new and having some expected start up issues. However, my concerns were addressed professionally and with compassion. The staff have all been great in helping my child settle. I would love my child to have language and sports classes here. Mandarin, Yoga, Football or even a swim class would be great additions as well as excursions.

Our son has settled in really well and we can see the positive impact Bright Horizons has had on his development and behaviour. The staff are friendly and helpful and interested in his individual needs and interests. The environment is structured around different skill areas and the nursery itself is always clean and bright and well organised. The food is a healthy balance and varied, he eats things here that he won't when I cook them!

The building is a secure environment away from traffic. Good lock and key system to enter the nursery and a manager is sitting right at the entrance to welcome you. Spacious rooms for kids and very caring staff, eager to know about your child and what are they like at home. Even make an effort to learn our local/foreign words to understand what child is communicating to them. Very happy overall.

We are very happy with this nursery. My son started in April 2017 and since then he is happy in the mornings when we go. They take good care of him, there are not many kids and they always do plenty of activities and are flexible with food.

My daughter has just started at this nursery. Overall I am happy with the care provided but I do have some constructive comments from my experience at enrollment and settling in:
1/ There were numerous forms to complete on site on first settling day, with info that requires referring to diary/contact book/mobile phone, the latter cannot be used on the site. I suggest this should be emailed to parents to complete before first settling in day.
2/ Baby room should have no outside shoe policy.
3/ Admin staff communication could be friendlier, and more empathic to parents who may not have experienced a child's separation anxiety.

I continue to be impressed by the new Greenwich Day Nursery, you'd think it's been open for years! The staff are friendly and supportive to both the children and the nervous parents leaving their little ones in a new environment. My daughter is always full of smiles and stories when I arrive to collect her.
