The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for The Teddy Bear Nursery Club - Dundee 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 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Teddy Bear Nursery Club - Dundee in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 31 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 4.908 for The Teddy Bear Nursery Club - Dundee is calculated as follows: ( (338 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 371 Ratings = 4.908

  • 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 The Teddy Bear Nursery Club - Dundee is based on 31 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 18.8 positive Reviews (94 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 31 Reviews ÷ 18.8 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.

The Teddy Bear Nursery is an excellent facility within the grounds of Ninewells Hospital. My son has been attending for eighteen months and prior to that, my daughter attended from one to starting in P1. The building is clean and bright, with plenty of space in the playrooms and outside. Each room has its own outside play area and all are well supervised. The staff are friendly, approachable and caring (most importantly!) and taken an active role in supporting the children's development. There is a good level of parent involvement in all aspects of the service. Later on, the preparation for Primary School is really helpful to support this transition.

Teddy Bear is an absolutely outstanding nursery. My daughter has been attending since just after her first birthday and she adores it there. She is happy and extremely well cared for. She is exposed to a huge variety of stimulating activities and has made lots of friends. The staff are wonderful and caring and it is clear to see that they are there for the love of the job and that they really care about all of the children. This nursery came highly recommended by colleagues and friends and it is easy to see why. I would not send my daughter anywhere else, and I can get on with a day's work, safe in the knowledge that my daughter is having a wonderful time - and that she will tell me all about it as best she can for a nearly two-year-old when I pick her up!

My daughter has attended 'Oakley's explorers' in this nursery since August 2017 and I have found the staff to be very caring and affectionate towards the children. My daughter has a very good relationship with all members of staff and talks very highly of her group leader! My daughter is always getting lots of opportunities to play both indoors and outdoors, with lots of space for her too. Communication between staff and parents is good, upon picking up my daughter, I am always given a good insight into how her day has been. The food the nursery provides the children is always healthy and yummy! My child has been encouraged to try lots of new foods while attending The Teddy Bear Club. I have also been well informed of what subjects and projects my child has been completing, always with lots and lots of fun along with them! My daughter has settled into this nursery very well, would highly recommend.

Both our children have attended/are attending The Teddy Bear Nursery Club and we are very happy with the care they have received. We have found the staff to be kind and genuinely affectionate towards the children. There is good documentation of their activities and progress, and the standard of the food is excellent. They also get a lot of time playing outdoors.
I would recommend this nursery.

Our Granddaughter simply loves going to this nursery. All the staff are excellent and she often doesn't want to come away at the end of the day, as she is busy and happy playing when we go to pick her up. Her language skills have come on a lot and she has made some lovely friends of her own age. She is so happy here that we have increased the number of days she goes and are seriously considering increasing them again. I only wish we had such an outstanding facility when our own children were babies - I can not recommend the nursery and all the staff there highly enough.

All three of my children attended this nursery since they were 6-7 months old. I have been highly impressed with the care and compassion shown by all of the staff towards the children and their families. I trust the team 100% with the care of my children.

The nursery has excellent management and communication with parents is great. The children are happy and content and have lots of varied learning opportunities. The food is nutritious, the environment is safe and attractive and the children form lovely relationships with staff and other children. The staff understand the children's individual needs extremely well and are highly intuitive in their care. I think this nursery encourages children to be self-confident and to develop their skills. My children are very comfortable speaking to adults and children of all ages and I am sure the nursery environment has nurtured this. I have recommended this nursery very highly to numerous colleagues over the years and will continue to do so.

I have two children attending this nursery and both enjoy it very much. The foundation to any good nursery is the team members. I can say the team have a passion for childcare and are motivated to enhance each child's learning experience. I enjoy seeing my children progress by the projects that are introduced; seasons, countries of the world; earth and space; numbers and learning. Teaching listening, communication and baking skills. Promoting independence and encouraging teamwork and good playing. All of which is essential for starting primary school.

Food- menu changes with the seasons. Good variety. Children encouraged to try new foods and learn about where foods come from.
Management- always floating around and a visible presence in the classrooms. Always present if you need a chat or have suggestions. Cannot recommend Teddy Bear Nursery highly enough.

I have 2 children in this nursery, both started around 9 months. I am extremely satisfied with the nursery and all its staff and facilities. It is at the higher end of the price range in the area but well worth it for the excellent staffing ratio, the care and love they provide for the children and for the fantastic access to outside space.

The children are always happy at the end of the day and every day they have clear evidence of playing outside on their clothes. The activities are always age appropriate. The childrens' development is closely monitored and we have an excellent overview of what's going on in the room when we pick them up. The space is very good and has had recent improvements that will further enhance the learning ability of the children. Food is great (I don't know how they manage to get my sons to eat, they hardly eat anything at home), varied and balanced.
I really can't fault this nursery. By far the best I've seen.

My child started at the Teddy Bear Nursery Club a few weeks ago and I am so happy with how well they have settled. The staff honestly could not have worked harder to make them feel happy and secure and also to help me with the transition. I spent some hours in the room during the settling in process and was very impressed at how well they looked after the children. The staff are so caring and I would happily recommend them to others.

Absolutely fabulous. My daughter was very nervous starting nursery and a very quiet child in general and I feel that the nursery girls have helped her so much to come out of her shell as she is now so much more confident in herself. Great facilities and fantastic development schemes in place for all children. All the girls are amazing.

From the first reaction of our first son, we knew this nursery was the right choice for our child. Having visited other nursery prior to Teddy Bear Club our son cried after each visit. As soon as we came into The Teddy Bear Nursery Club he was calm and happy, and no tears! He had big smiles for the manager who is very warm and great with children. All staff are very welcoming and you feel you're leaving your child in safe hands, which to a parent is the most important thing.

All food is great and nutritions and both our kids love it (even if they are fussy eaters at home). Each room provides great activities and learning tools for children. We didn't hesitate which nursery to pick for our second child. Our daughter loves the nursery too, even after being there for a few weeks.

Both of my children have attended from around 14 months. When my eldest started school, his teacher commented on his excellent pre-school education and that his grasp of reading and numeracy was fantastic. The nursery staff gave him the best start possible.
My youngest has been there for over a year now and although he had initial separation issues, he is now flourishing and looks forward to going. His confidence and speech have come on so much and we often catch him singing and doing the actions to songs he learnt at nursery.

I have recommended the nursery to several friends and colleagues and will continue to do so.

A great nursery which has taken great care of my 2 children. My eldest has just left for school and has been given an excellent head start by the nursery girls. They nurture the children while educating them and encouraging their curiosities.

The care provided is second to none and the manager has always addressed any concerns with a prompt response. The nursery location is extremely convenient for parents working in the university and hospital (with extended opening hours to accommodate) and has a huge south facing garden where the children spent lots of time.

My children benefit greatly from attending here and the girls working there have become like a second family.

My son started in Teddy Bear Club Nursery when he just turned 1 and I had to return to work. It is always hard to leave your baby in the care of other people, but the nursery made it easier with a transition period before he started. The staff are amazing! All very caring and attentive.

My son is now 3 and he loves going to nursery! They do lots of different activities and are outdoors most of the time which is great!

They have a varied diet in the food that is provided by the nursery, which is all homemade. My son has tried a lot of different things, which he wouldn’t try at home.

When I pick him up at the end of the day, I get a rundown on what they have been doing during the day and how my son is progressing.

He is coming on leaps and bounds at Teddy Bear Club. I honestly couldn’t rate the nursery highly enough. I have my daughters name down already to start next year when I go back to work!

My son just started attending this nursery about 4/5 weeks ago and since then he has grown leaps and bounds. He is 9 months and before he started nursery, would get upset at other children making loud noises. However, after attending this nursery the staff have made him feel very safe and he has flourished being at Teddy Bear Club and is now the first to join in with the other children.

I have also been really impressed with the quality of the food they provide at this nursery and our boy has loved all the different foods he has gotten to try. They are also happy to do both BLW and staff led feeding depending on your preference. I couldn't recommend this nursery more.

My husband and I have been so impressed with the high standard of care and professionalism at this nursery. Our son has attended since he was 8 months old and absolutely loves his time there. He is always so excited to see the staff and other children and as working parents, this is so reassuring for us.

All three of my children have attended Teddy Bear Club. My eldest are now 5 and 8 and go to the high school. The youngest is 3 and is at Teddy Bear since the baby room.
Teddy Bear Club staff have nurtured all of them individually. From the friendliness, approachability and professionalism of manager to the genuine caring loving nature of all the staff looking after. The children and the nutritious meals prepared by the long-standing cook.

I would highly recommend this nursery to any parent who wants peace of mind that their children will be looked after and cared for in a nurturing loving environment. I couldn't recommend Teddy Bear Club anymore!

I have used Teddy Bear Club Nursery for the last 5 years, recommending it to many of my friends and colleagues. The nursery is set in a great location with good outdoor space which is used daily by the nursery. Every day, the children are cooked fantastic homemade lunches that are well thought out. The children have super opportunities to explore, create and investigate in a safe and nurturing environment.

Communication is good with parents and feedback is always welcomed. The staff are reliable and friendly. My two children have loved being there and always talk fondly of the workers. There are many opportunities to go and see the children engaged in their play and join in with their learning.

My oldest boy has just started school after 4 years at The Teddy Bear Nursery Club. He absolutely loved his time here and frequently complained he only got to go for 2 days! My youngest child initially struggled to settle at nursery and I couldn't speak highly enough of the staff who are so kind and enthusiastic and go above and beyond to get to know your child to help them to settle. The staff retention is fantastic and it has been lovely to have the same staff caring for my youngest now.

My son has been attending Teddybear Club Nursery since he was one, he is now 4. I visited nurseries around Dundee but couldn't help but fall in love with Teddy's. I was greeted with professionalism and kindness. The classrooms are all bright & there is a large garden area for the children to play and explore.

From day one my child was cared for in an endearing, loving, professional and caring manner. He has excelled through his journey from panda room to Oakleys. The staff are all amazing and I do not know what I would do without them. They treat my child like their own and for a mother leaving their child all day it gives me great pride and trust knowing the staff have his best interests.

The manager and deputies are fantastic and like the staff I trust them. They not only care for your child, the staff but also the parents. All very involved! All the kids love the cook, I would normally have to bribe my child at home or in restaurants, but saying the cook at nursery made that, usually works a treat!

My eldest daughter just started school after 4 years attending "The Teddy Bear" full-time, so when the time came for my two youngest to start nursery, without a doubt I chose it again.

Since then, I have come to know all the staff, as well as the managers and they have become my team, allowing me to do my job everyday without a worry. I know they are being taken care of by the best. They know my children. They know when they are happy, sad, ill or grumpy and they know how to deal with them in every situation. They always go one step forward, so when my eldest showed an interest in writing, they sat with her to give her new words to try every day and she started P1 writing beautifully, even when that was not part of the nursery’s curriculum.

The location is great, as well as the rooms and gardens, but the staff is what makes this nursery what it is. I can't recommend it enough.

Fantastic nursery. The staff are incredible. My boys really enjoy their time there. The children are outside pretty much every day and learn to discover the world around them. The activities the nursery offer the children are varied from painting with leaves and cars to jumping rainbow puddles and making mud pizza. The food at the unreserved is excellent and my boys tend to eat better and a wider variety at nursery. Now at preschool, the days are more structured, but still leave plenty of time to play. Primary school teachers have commented on how well the nursery prepares the children for school.

Fantastic nursery with caring staff. My daughter runs into this nursery every day excited to see her friends and staff, which she never did at her previous nursery. Since she has been at this nursery, her personality and confidence have grown even bigger. I feel at ease when I leave her at the nursery that she is in safe hands.

Every night I go in I get a rundown of all the things she has done in her day and she loves to tell me all about it. The nursery provides a wide variety of activities and events throughout the year. Parents receive monthly newsletters and it is always displayed in the nursery any upcoming events. My daughter will be going to school next year but even after she is no longer in the nursery, I will still be highly recommending it to friends and family.

A fantastically fun (and safe) learning environment! The comforting team have helped my child grow. My child enjoys this nursery so much he talks about his friends and staff most nights of the week, and he is excited in the mornings when he is getting ready to go!

Fantastic Nursery! There's always somebody available to give my granddaughter a cuddle first thing in the morning so she stays happy. Great outdoor facilities and kids can go outdoors whenever they want. Food is fantastic and very varied and healthy. Staff are very friendly and nice.

I have sent all three of my boys to Teddy's - age 4, 2 and 10 months and believe there to be no better place for them. It's always a wrench leaving your young children but staff are caring, warm, humorous and helpful. Parents are informed of menu changes, included in events often to fundraise and made to feel part of something greater than a transaction for child care.

The history of Teddy's dates back decades - one of my mother's friends who worked at the hospital nearby sent her children there almost 20 years ago. It has a reputation as one of Dundee's best nurseries and it most definitely is.

I researched other nurseries before my eldest attended and this one. I feel that passion, care and loyalty should be rewarded and wholeheartedly champion Teddy's and its staff from management to teachers and the much-loved cook.

We have used The Teddy Bear Club since our son was 8 months old and he is now 4 and a half! The staff and managers are fantastic, they provide wonderful opportunities for him and have supported his development so well.

We are so thankful to all the girls who have become a part of our family as they look after him almost full-time during the week, and have helped him become the great wee boy he is now. Can highly recommend the nursery, flexible, longer hours for working parents, with top class, well-trained staff, who really do go above and beyond.
