Reviews

9.6 Wandsworth Nursery & Pre-School Academy has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.641)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Wandsworth Nursery & Pre-School Academy is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 43 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Wandsworth Nursery & Pre-School Academy in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 29 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 4.641 for Wandsworth Nursery & Pre-School Academy is calculated as follows: ( (351 Excellents x 5) + (145 Goods x 4) + (20 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 516 Ratings = 4.641

  • 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 Wandsworth Nursery & Pre-School Academy is based on 29 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 23.6 positive Reviews (118 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 29 Reviews ÷ 23.6 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.

We couldn’t be happier with The Wandsworth Nursery and Preschool academy. Every bit of their service and attention to the kids is spot on! Every child feels special and loved and I am always at peace knowing that my son is very well looked after. My son has come on leaps and bounds with them and his expression and language have developed significantly as have his confidence and independence. At the age of 2 and a half, he has also become very fond of books and loves to sit with me at home to read which he has picked up from nursery story times. My only wish is for them to share more pictures of the kids activities on our app.

Since my little boy started here in October 2017, he has continued to be a little happy chappy but has grown in confidence and waves goodbye to me every morning when I drop him off (which, as a parent, is a huge relief and a proud moment).

All staff are very friendly and helpful and assist with any questions/enquiries I may have very quickly. There is a great balance of care and independence here at this nursery. My little boy, I know, is cared for and very well looked after but at the same time, has his independence and is not spoon-fed at every opportunity/task (which I am thankful for).

Overall, a very good Nursery. So far so good.

My experience with Busy Bees has been wonderful, I couldn’t ask for a better nursery. They have helped my child to learn and grow as well as helping and guiding me along the way. It’s been nice to be able to get practical advice during challenging times I experienced with my boy, from tantrums to potty training! The staff and manager really look out for us and are so caring, they keep me updated with activities in the nursery and how my kid is doing. He has had a lovely time at the nursery and has grown attached to it. I have noticed an improvement in my child's interaction, he is more confident and sociable and swiftly adjusts to having more children around him - he now enjoys their company. Thank you Busy Bees and all the staff working there for taking care of us! I would definitely recommend this nursery, you won’t be left disappointed.

I am very pleased with the nursery and couldn’t be happier about the choice I have made.

When I drop my son off at Busy Bees three days a week he is happy to go and be there and can’t wait to go inside to learn which put a smile on my face and reassure me as a parent.

Each day is different and full of activities and learning for the children to do and the play area/garden is great.

I love the parent zone app because it is a great way to keep up to date with my son daily activities, meals & nappy status and many more as well as receiving email on a weekly basis.

The nursery management team and staff are very approachable, friendly and do a wonderful job in taking care of all the children at Busy Bees.

Kind regards to you all.

I have always been very happy with the nursery since my daughter started in April 2016 but in the last year, the overall standards in the nursery have increased. I know this is thanks to the new manager and her staff who make my daughter feel very welcomed, involved in different activities and happy to be at nursery.

I very much like the fact that she is able to develop her Spanish language in nursery as well due to the different nationalities of the members of staff; this is especially important for us as she is a child growing in a trilingual environment at home and in this manner she is able to at least learnt two of them at nursery too. She will be moving to the preschool area of the nursery next year and I am looking forward starting the next cycle of her learning years within the safe environment of the nursery. I can only thank everyone at nursery for taking such good care of my daughter.

My grandchild has recently started attending Busy Bees in the baby room and I must say my daughter made a great choice. All the staff are very welcoming and friendly. They provide you with all the information you need and keep you up to date with what they've done for the day. Management is excellent. They have an open door policy which makes you feel like you can go to them at anytime without feeling like you're bothering them.

I love the outdoor space and love the fact that the babies have their own little corner if they need to separate from the older children. Activities and resources are excellent. One thing I really admire about the nursery is how clean and spacious it is. The food is great and I love the fact that they get a take-home meal at the end of the day. Overall, an excellent nursery with a great team.

We are absolutely delighted with the nursery and couldn’t be happier about the choice we made. Every morning when we drop our son off he is absolutely thrilled to be there and you can see the baby room set up with all the activities for the day.
Every day is full of different activities and the nursery staff are very attentive to the children’s development and wellbeing. I especially love coming to pick up my son and seeing him so preoccupied with all the toys and other children. The garden space is an absolute gem and it is so lovely that the children get to play outside in the fresh air.

There is a wonderful cook and our son looks forward to every meal. We get a lot of comfort from knowing that our boy gets a healthy, balanced diet every day. We especially love the fact that he comes home with a dinner so that is one thing we don’t need to worry about.

I appreciate that when I collect my children at the end of the day the feedback I get is very informative. Communicating with the staff is very easy I never feel like I am asking too many questions and if there is something they are unsure of they go and find out. I also appreciate the red plate system as my son has an egg allergy and they go through a very precise protocol to ensure that he doesn't come into contact with egg i.e. a member of staff sits with him at meal time to prevent him touching or accidentally eating something with egg. There is also a learning journal type book that allows you to share what your child does at home so they can focus on the necessary areas. The staff are friendly and approachable whilst remaining professional.

We have transferred from another nursery in the Busy Bees group and we are very happy with our decision. My son settled in very well and professional approach of everybody in the nursery made it really easy for him. I love the space, there is plenty of space to play, different areas with different themes and babies can move around freely and explore. They also go outside several times a day which is important. The outside area could be bigger but it is still a reasonable size. Food is excellent and I especially like the fact that we get dinners in a little box to take home so I don't have to worry about dinner for my little one which is a great time-saving. The nursery manager has a very welcoming approach, she is open to ideas and comments. I also like the fact that she spends some time in the rooms so knows the babies better and shares stories from the day. The parent zone application is being updated almost online so I can read everything about my sons day on the way from work.

Since my son joined Busy Bees, I’ve been massively impressed with the rapid rate of his development.

I know every time I went to see a Nursery in the area they are all quick to explain how great their practice is, but I’ve got to hand it to the team at Busy Bees because they are a fantastic bunch. They are really approachable and caring. I’ve seen how attentive they are to my boy when I walk in the room.

Management constantly communicates with me. I’m well informed of his daily progress and time at Nursery. As only parents would understand, I’m now relaxed about leaving my child in the care of this great team of people. Couldn't be happier and I'd recommend trying them out.

I am extremely happy that my boy has made so much progress since he started in June 2017.
He has become a lot more confident and independent.
We had issues with separation anxiety and eating.
Now with the parent zone application, I am able to see that he is not only eating but also feeding himself and actually enjoying the food the nursery provides.
I am also able to see exactly what he has eaten and check his nappy status and sleeping times from home.
He is not only learning songs and singing around our house but also saying and understanding more words.
I have been so impressed with the nursery that I even recommended two parents to join the nursery for their children.
The improvement in him has given me the confidence to not worry about him during nursery time and actually start doing something for myself.
The staff are wonderful, especially a carer who has done a wonderful job with him from day one. Thank you all.

The nutrition they receive, the friendly and dedicated staff and the brand new, well-resourced facilities are the main reason why we would recommend this nursery and our son enjoys his time there so much. The nursery is always open to improvement and suggestions. It is definitely the best in the area.

Since my son started at the nursery, at which he was very unsettled, to begin with, we have been very pleased with the lady who has managed the settling in process perfectly. The Senior Room Leader, the Deputy Manager and the Manager have all gone the extra mile by providing us with regular updates, including photographs, of our son's day. They have answered telephone calls for updates with enthusiasm. Now, my son is being looked after really well and is settling in. Our little one has even started asking to go in the mornings now! He is definitely enjoying!

My niece has been coming since Feb 2017 and I am so happy with everything about the nursery. The nursery is clean, bright and a happy environment. The manager is very passionate about her nursery and that shows throughout. Her and the staff are very professional but also very friendly and welcoming. The staff appear to know all the children’s names even though they may not work in their rooms. My niece seems to enjoy the different activities, which are very varied. I have noticed a huge improvement with her talking in a short space of time.
They provide healthy snacks and 'home-cooked' meals that my niece loves. When I go to collect her, I am told what sort of day she has had, what activities she has done and how much food she's had (usually she eats everything!)
The staff always have time to talk to me if I have any questions or concerns, and I always feel they have spent enough time with me. I don't have enough words to thank everyone for their excellent work.

The staff is there because they have the passion. I notice how they relay all information, nothing is too small, I know everything that happens in his day.
I can say with confidence that I found the perfect nursery.

I feel the nursery is outstanding, it's the best I've seen. The staff are all well trained and helpful. I'm very happy with the service. Although I would like to see a more affordable day rate for parents who work and send their children for a full 5 days a week, I feel some sort of discount on the day rate could be given.

The staff at Busy Bees Wandsworth are extremely friendly, helpful and caring. My son attends the baby room since he was 5 months old, being the youngest baby in the room worried me at first but the professionalism of the staff always made me feel that my baby was in the right hands. They follow my routine and comply with any specific requirements I have for my son.

Although for us, the most important thing was the adults' attitude towards our daughter and the amount of focus she would receive.

Busy Bees Wandsworth is an excellent nursery and pre-school. My sister is 2 and a half years old and has been attending the nursery for about 8 months. It's incredible how advanced she is in her speech and knowledge of things, she truly amazes me every day. This is also thanks to the amazing staff, including the manager who no doubt has given the Nursery a great name.

We came to visit Busy Bees and immediately decided this was the right environment for our toddler.
He is extremely attached to me and his daddy and it was lovely to see he bonded straight away with his key workers.
They really do take care of my boy and I can tell by the way he seems so cheerful, chatty and playful when I come to collect him.
They have a wide variety of toys indoors and outdoors.
Cleanliness is very important to us and the staff here were more than happy to show me how they keep the playroom clean and make arrangements with me for anything extra I requested.
I am very happy with our choice for this nursery but I wish my boy would start eating or get the confidence to eat at the nursery as this seems to be his weak point.
We have only been at the nursery 2 months so we have not noticed much change in our son's education level but I will be happy to review again in a few months on my thoughts of my sons' progress

My daughter (age 3) was extremely happy in the pre- school Academy. Her nursery teacher always took the time to explain what she learnt that day; so I could continue at home. At pick up time, my daughter didn't want to leave, showing how much she loved it! She will miss it here very much, but I feel she has been prepared for Big school!

Busy Bees (Wandsworth) has a great set up. The Nursery is very clean, tidy and bright, the outside play area has a fantastic range of facilities.
The nursery is very well organised and communication with parents and carers is excellent, staff are helpful and approachable. Activities are well organised, Mother's Day tea party coming up.
My toddler talks constantly about her care worker and her new best friend. She has made lots of friends, became more sociable and independent and in her own words, nursery "It’s lovely.”
They did a great job potty training her. We are very happy with the nursery.

I came to the nursery school as we had decided that the grandparents would pick their granddaughter up. Seeing that not all the staff had been informed, one member of the staff didn't want to let us take our granddaughter unless she could verify that it was as actually arranged (copies of our passports had been sent and authorisation was given) so 10 out of 10 for security.
It's a lovely, bright, clean and well-organised nursery school and we couldn't be happier knowing that our granddaughter is thriving there.

Good care. We feel the children are taken well care of. Although sometimes perhaps a little strict with the children, but we understand this is for their good. We like very much the space and the flexibility of management/staff.

My daughter loves going to Busy Bees every day. She is greeted with so much warmth and cheerfulness it puts a smile on both our faces. It's so great not having to take nappies, and even better is getting a to-go bag with a delicious and healthy supper at the end of each day - such a helpful touch. The baby room is so much larger, airier and lighter than other nurseries I have seen and there is a lovely outside garden. Top marks from us!

Overall we are very happy with the nursery. The communication is usually very good and my child is happy attending during the week.
There is often a variety of activities for the children to help promote their learning.

When I brought my first born, 18 month old, to Busy Bees I was anxious about his feelings and quality of child care. I arrived with a huge list of questions, I did about two weeks of drop-ins(!) and once we signed up I remember asking the preschool teachers to warm up the wipes before putting them on my baby's bum! They didn't laugh at me, instead, they did everything to put ME at ease, warmed up the wipes and also took care of other things that cropped up.

It is that care and attention of not only my child but also of my concerns that make me happily recommend Busy Bees over and over.

The garden is also fantastic, the biggest I have seen in Wandsworth and we visited four other day care units.

Eventually, I became much more settled (ha!). My child's confidence grew, his language and his eating improved immensely as often tricky foods are routine. This nursery offers fantastic pre-school and support from a very kind and caring team.

Choosing somewhere for the most precious thing in your life to stay is not easy. However, after visiting Many nurseries, we knew that this was the right one for us. The manager was amazing on our first visit and staff really took an interest in our child, which we did not see anywhere else.
Our child has now just finished settling into the nursery and his key-person makes us feel settled as well as him. We are welcomed well into the nursery in the morning and get lovely feedback at the end of the day. I can't fault the manager or any of the nursery team we have come into contact with. We recommend this nursery 100% and urge all parents to take a look.

Lovely nursery with staff who genuinely care about the children and their wellbeing. Brilliant nursery for a working mum as you do not have to worry about sending in nappies, wipes and milk as it's all included in the fees. They also provide takeaway dinner for the kids to take home, another bonus as you don't have to worry about dinner. The meals are very tasty, kudos to the chef. My daughter is settling in well and likes the nursery very much.

Since joining Busy Bees at Wandsworth, my daughter has developed in so many ways. She is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going into nursery every day and that is entirely up to the amazing staff in the nursery. The nursery also looks amazing since the new refurbished!!

OMG, this place has just had an amazing refurb, it's like the most beautiful nursery in the world!
Whenever I came to drop off my sister, she was always welcomed so well by the staff team. Really high staff to child ratios, such a calm relaxing environment!
Sadly had to transfer to different Busy Bees, but she still talks about the staff and children at Wandsworth, so heartbreaking!
Plus the cook is amazing! (she gave me some home made biscuits once lol)

My 2y old is currently in the toddler room, she spent a year in the baby room before that and she is very happy with Busy Bees. The staff are very loving and caring and great with the kids, almost like one big family. It seems like she learns something new every day. It is amazing to see how she has developed since going to Busy Bees and it was also very beneficial for her confidence and interaction with other kids. The nursery has recently been refurbished and looks amazing, the outside space and toys are great. Thanks for doing an amazing job, it makes it so much easier to leave my daughter there every day.

Our son has been with Busy Bees since he was 6 months old. It has now been over a year and a half. He's been from the baby room now to toddlers and he is absolutely loving it. There is a real bond with the other children who have mostly been there just as long and the staff. He is also showing great signs of development compared to other children his age who may not be attending a nursery. The facilities have recently been refurbished and are brilliant. The food is fresh and made on site, which was a big selling point for us. The kids absolutely love it and take part in baking activities now and again. Last but not least, most of the children at Busy Bees Wandsworth have a multicultural and multilingual background, which I think is extremely positive for all in these early years of development.

My daughter has been going to the nursery for almost 2 years now. She enjoys her time in the nursery and is happy with the care takers. After the refurbishment, the rooms are more spacious and airy. Since the last couple of months, systematic activities are planned with each child based on their needs. We appreciate that the dietary requirement of the children are taken into consideration. In the past, there have been too many management changes and key people have moved on. There was no adequate handover and we felt things were not structured. We really hope the latest changes are here to stay.

My two children (3 and 1) currently attend Busy Bees at Wandsworth, in preschool and 'baby'. Both kids are very happy and settled at the nursery. They enjoy their daily activities, particularly cooking classes, and playing in the outside playground. The staff are supportive and kind. I really appreciate how the nursery is flexible with accommodating extra days in nursery when there is some work thing I need to deal with. And the 'take home meals' are actually very helpful.

My main concern at the moment is the fact that the number of kids seems to have dropped significantly and what does that mean? Why have other kids been leaving and in addition what is the plan to get new kids in as I would like slightly bigger class sizes.

My daughter attends Busy Bees at Wandsworth. She settled in extremely fast which reassured me that this is the right place for her to develop and flourish. She immediately warmed to her care-workers who made her feel welcome and settled and they keep me involved in her development daily. I’m amazed by the rate of her development over the last month. Her vocabulary has expanded much to my amusement, her hand-eye coordination is superb and her confidence has vastly improved.

In my first week, the manager assured me there would be many changes to the facilities, staff and practice which I’ve seen progressively happen. I’m extremely happy to see that she's actually making a positive change and impacting my daughter’s education in a great way and not simply about securing my money.

Very well run nursery, management team are very efficient and approachable. Welcoming environment, children always seem happy. Excellent resources, my son loves his key worker and there seems to be a very good partnership with the parents forming, which is great for me, especially as I really want to be involved with my child's day and help out the team as and when I can.
I really hope they continue to flourish as they are doing so and I am looking forward to myself my wife and my son being a part of this journey. Well done Busy Bees Wandsworth team!
