Reviews

8.7 Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries Twickenham has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.735)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries Twickenham 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 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries Twickenham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.729 for Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries Twickenham is calculated as follows: ( (186 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 251 Ratings = 4.729

  • 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 4.006 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries Twickenham is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.256

  • 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 Bright Beginnings on the Green for a few months now. The team have been really supportive throughout the settling in period and our little lady loves going so much that she asks to go on her days off!

We wanted her to be in and settled before our second baby arrived, which we have achieved perfectly with the help of the Toddlers team. They talk about mummy having a baby in her tummy and are assisting us with what is bound to be a rocky transition period for her while she gets used to having a sibling. It's wonderful to know she is being guided on this at nursery as well as at home.

The nursery is clean and tidy. The staff are well presented, kind, organised and welcoming. The nursery is very secure and in a strategic location so the children can enjoy walks to the parks and riverside. I am always provided with daily logs of all the activities done by my son, the amount of food he ate, nap times he had, nappy changes etc. Which I like a lot. Older children are kept separate, so the babies are safe in the baby room and they also have a quiet room for their naps. The staff are great!!

My toddler has been attending Bright Beginnings 26 The Green for several months now and the positive impact this has had on her development is clearly noticed by myself and family.
All the staff are very nurturing and the environment has a home from home feeling about it. I can go to work feeling confident my baby is in a safe, caring environment where she is learning and having fun. Daily activities are logged in a report card and videos and photos uploaded onto a secure site so I can see what she has been up to which is really nice.
The meals are nutritionally balanced and she gets fresh air every day on long walks in the buggy (weather permitting). I would definitely recommend this nursery.

My son has been at Bright Beginnings for over a year now and is very happy there. It has a lovely family atmosphere and I genuinely feel that they love and care for my son.
They are always busy with lots of activities and get out everyday to see different parks and places. The rooms are well done and the staff are very good. It feels small enough to be safe and friendly, and big enough to have lots of stimulation for him to learn and grow.
I never worry about how he is there as I know that he is being well looked after.

We started at Bright Beginnings Day Nurseries Twickenham last September when my daughter was just over a year old. We've now 'graduated' up to toddler room, but the level of care has been consistently great throughout. Like most mums, I was nervous when my daughter was starting nursery, but the room manager and her key persons really helped both of us settle in. And I've seen her come on leaps and bounds in the time since she has started. The rooms are brilliantly done, with loads to keep the little ones busy. They always take the little ones out (weather permitting) for loads of singing, feeding ducks, to the park etc. But the best part about the nursery is the staff. Each day I receive a full report of what she's done while there, we have clear developmental goals defined together for the little one, and regular reviews to see how she's getting on. Highly recommend this nursery to everyone, and a big thank you to the staff for being so amazing!

I would highly recommend Bright Beginnings to any parent.
Putting my child into someone else's care for the first time was a daunting thought, but they settled both my child and me into it so well and I have complete trust in the nursery and know my child has such great fun when there.
Not only do they have fun, but the nursery helps towards their development and communication skills which are important. Every child is individual and they recognise this and work on each child's own needs and goals. Plus, they go on little outings which not all nurseries do, and have great messy play (which means children learn and have fun, plus you don't have to do this all the time at home and clean all the mess haha)!
I'm very happy with all staff and activities at the nursery and most importantly, my child enjoys it too!

Our son has been attending Bright Beginnings on Twickenham Green since November 2015 when he was 11 months old. We have nothing but the utmost praise for the nursery and its staff. They work incredibly hard are very dedicated and cannot do enough for our son. They are very communicative and are always there for us when we need advice on how to ensure our son develops to be a wonderful young man.

My son has attended nursery since January 2016 and his development over that time has been incredible. The staff quickly got to know his needs, likes and dislikes and he is so excited to go to nursery every day. He loves the daily outings and there are always plenty of activities planned throughout the day to keep him entertained. He is incredibly happy, well cared for and has made some fantastic friends.

My son came from a different country so there was this challenge of language barrier and the differences in food, how to cope with other children from different countries and background but within a couple of months after joining the nursery he got along very well with both teachers and his mates. I believe strongly that the support he needed, his teachers provided them adequately and timely and that contributed to his massive improvement within a short time.

This nursery has been a god-send. The happy and stable environment has allowed my son to blossom. I have always struggled with leaving my child in the care of others but Bright Beginnings have always made me feel comfortable in the knowledge that my son is in the best care. The staff seem to have endless energy and enthusiasm and are extremely flexible when it comes to taking care of the needs of the individual. They follow the child's interest and gently nurture them. My son always comes homes with stories of what he has been doing and he genuinely loves the people that take care of him. I feel very lucky to be part of their community.

My daughter is now 18 months old and has attended since she was 13 months old. The staff are friendly and caring towards her. I like how the staff change the baby room often to keep the kids interested. The kids do a variety of activities each day which is good and time is taken to teach the kids new words and actions. The nursery always make an effort to take the kids out and take them to a variety of places to learn new things. Overall my daughter seems happy with the nursery.

Our daughter has been under the care of the nursery since its opening last summer. Her care has been outstanding - the staff regularly inform parents of their children's development progress through Tapestry, an online Early Years tool for sharing photos, videos and notes. Our daughter began in the toddlers group and has graduated to pre-school where she is always excited to see friends - often running off without saying goodbye at drop off! She's a confident, independent, considerate and well-mannered child - a testament to the staff's quality of care.

Parents are encouraged to participate in weekly themed activities and we're impressed with the emphasis on bilingual children (there's an area dedicated to other cultures so that children can learn more). There are walks to the riverside, playground and the green, plus a special our daughter loves the indoor sandpit. She thrives at Bright Beginnings and we're looking forward to sending our second into the baby room this autumn.

The staff are superb. My little boy talks about them all the time with great fondness. His development has been fantastic, learning things like how to safely cross the road. He knows many many nursery rhymes. His confidence has certainly grown since attending. The nursery is very clean and I would recommend it to anyone.

Our daughter started at Bright Beginnings on the Green in September, at only 11 months of age. We were quite nervous at first as she could obviously not communicate with us if she was enjoying nursery or not (our older daughter had not started nursery until she was over 2 years old, so we could ask her how things were going). We needn't have been nervous at all! It became apparent very quickly that she absolutely loved going to nursery, and that she was having lots of fun. She was being stimulated in ways that we could not easily have stimulated her at home, and she was always laughing and smiling when we came to pick her up. The Manager and her team take great efforts to give the children in their care a varied and stimulating array of activities to do, and they capture a lot of it on videos or in photos and post these online so that we, as parents, can share in these special moments. All of the staff are fantastic - it always amazes me how fresh and happy they all still look at the end of what must be an exhausting day looking after our little ones! You can tell by the way they are just how much enthusiasm and effort they put into their jobs. We feel very lucky to have found this great nursery and are very grateful for the care they give our daughter.

The staff are great and take amazing care of my son.
The surroundings that my son plays in are second to none.
My son always comes home from nursery skipping and singing and happy. He always tells me what fun he has had. The staff have picked up on my sons obsession with rockets and space and he regularly gets to construct rockets and play space related role play games.
He enjoys playing in the fantastic sandpit and since being there has made many new friends.
I feel totally confident leaving him there during the day.

The nursery staff are ever so patient, helpful, smiley and kind. My elder daughter had difficulty settling at another nursery a few years ago and I was really worried about my little one's settling - it went very smoothly. Now she would run towards the staff in the morning when we drop her, not even looking at us any more!
