The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Bright Horizons West Hill Day Nursery and Preschool is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bright Horizons West Hill Day 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 8 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 4.896 for Bright Horizons West Hill Day Nursery and Preschool is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.896

  • 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 4.348 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bright Horizons West Hill Day Nursery and Preschool is based on 8 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 23 positive Reviews (115 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 23 Target = 0.348

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

My daughter currently attends the pre-school here and she absolutely loves it. The staff is really caring and she is always happy to stay in the morning and is excited to tell me all about her day when I pick her up.
The setting is amazing, both for parents and children, the management team is very helpful and supportive.
The parents evenings encourage everyone to give feedback that is then worked upon.
Very happy with the choice of care for my child.

This is our second experience with a Bright Horizon´s Nursery. We really like the way they conceive children's caring and education. We are especially fond of the different programs they have, such as the growing mathematicians or growing readers. West Hill Day Nursery is a great place and both our daughters (aged 4 and 19 months) enjoy it very much. The place is brand new has great facilities that are very nice and completely equipped. The staff (administrative, caretakers, cooks, etc) is very nice and extremely thoughtful regarding us and our kids. We really like the fact that they organise different activities for the children, such as language lessons, parties in the garden, cooking and of course different events involving parents. These are very stimulating for the kids and helps us getting involved and enjoy special moments with them.
We are really happy with the nursery and would definitely recommend it!

We chose to place our child in nursery 2x half days a week for socialisation and development play. I am impressed by the range of activities and environments offered through the ages, ensuring engagement and skills development as they grow. Valuable was the 2 weeks settling in period on offer, making us all feel familiar with the staff and facilities.
I quite often make use of the parents area, to read or catch-up on emails, with tea, coffee and biscuits provided. ;) Nice touch!

As new parents, we were very impressed by the whole settling in process at Bright Horizons. The staff were attentive to the needs of our little boy and immediately he was surrounded by encouragement and smiles. The parent hub is a brilliant idea, allowing parents to talk to each other, particularly new parents is a good opportunity to share experiences etc. The staff actively encouraged me stay for as long as I wanted in order to feel comfortable about leaving little one which was a great comfort.
In the first week I recall our little boy being quite upset and I was encouraged to let the girls try and comfort him, five minutes later they came back with a photo of him sitting happily with his toys, no more tears. A small gesture but it meant a lot because hearing that all is ok is great, but seeing a picture to prove it was much better!

The facilities are excellent and the end of day update is a great way to keep updated with all that has happened in the day.

We are overall very happy with the nursery and the settling in process.
Staff are extremely competent and caring. We love the fact that is all brand new and that groups are still kept small so our son gets a lot of attention.
We feel our son is making very good progress since joining the nursery as well as eating well and being generally happy.
We also like that he is spending a lot of time in the garden getting fresh air. Garden facilities are really fantastic.
The only thing we struggle a bit sometimes is to find a parking space around the area. But I guess that is a problem we would find anywhere in London!
Would highly recommend!

The nursery is big and bright, clean and it divided per age group but also has specific spaces where children can learn about science, technology, arts, nature and cooking. The staff is very caring and supportive, they engage really well with the children and parents and look for new opportunities to help them develop and explore. My child also loves the huge outside area, the nursery was designed to make it easier for toddlers to flow through the inside and outside spaces and gives them a sense of freedom that they don't have in other nurseries! The food is really good, my child loves the pies, the soups, the fruit salads and they make their own cakes and biscuits with the kids, which are delicious by the way. There are always activities going on, besides circle time, story time, Playhouse, messy play and artwork, they even do "bear hunts" in the garden. They will soon have a second language class too. We are very happy with West Hill as is our little girl.

My husband and I are delighted with the service and care that the staff at the new Bright Horizons in West Hill have shown our child. From the very first day, the staff have offered their utmost consideration to ensure our boy settled in and felt comfortable in his environment, and they continue to give each child all the individual attention and care that each child may need. The difference it has made to our son is noticeable – both at nursery and at home, he is clearly happier and more engaging. We could not recommend a nursery more highly.
