The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Bush Babies - Leicester Blaby is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bush Babies - Leicester Blaby in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.833 for Bush Babies - Leicester Blaby is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bush Babies - Leicester Blaby is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.167

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

My son been coming to this nursery since he was 8 months old. He has a close bond with his key worker and she knows his personal interests. My son is always happy to go into nursery which puts my mind at ease knowing he enjoys his days. They take pictures throughout the week of him and the activities he’s been doing. All staff are friendly and helpful, I would definitely recommend.

I could highly recommend Bush Babies. My son is always looked after well, and the staff provide a caring environment and are informative to parents. They get 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and high tea) which are varied and healthy (with the odd treat).
I can see how my son has developed through a "Learning journey" file that the staff keep up to date and parents are welcome to view at any time. Entry to the nursery is through a fingerprint system which, though temperamental, provides security and children must be signed in and out of every session, which provides me with confidence that my child is safe.
The nursery also has social activities which include parents (eg. around Christmas) and regular parents evening sessions to discuss progress and issues with the child's keyworker. The facilities are great - There are 2 secure outside facilities (one for the younger groups and one for the pre-school groups) an IT room and an "Enchanted" room for creativity.
