The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Bush Babies - Leicester Oadby is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.966 for Bush Babies - Leicester Oadby is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.966

  • 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 4.481 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bush Babies - Leicester Oadby is based on 5 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.481

  • 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 has been at Bush Babies since she was nine months old, she is now two and a ½ years old and she absolutely loves it.
My daughter loves all the staff there and refers to them as her friends.
They have helped with teaching her to crawl, walk, talk, potty train and try new foods.
My daughter is always surprising me with the new things she has learnt and I feel the nursery has helped bring out her funny personality.
As a parent, I feel very confident leaving her at this nursery. I know she is well looked after and has lots of fun there as well as helping her progress in all areas. I also know that if she is upset or feeling under the weather, she will be well cared for and will get the extra cuddles if she needs them.

Jessica Ward, Manager at Bush Babies - Leicester Oadby responded to this review on 25 Oct 2017:

Thank you for your lovely comments.

Both my children have had the wonderful benefit of attending Bush Babies Leicester Oadby. The manager and the caring staff at this nursery carry out their responsibilities in caring, nurturing and educating the children to a standard of excellence that I feel would not be easily found within the childcare industry.

Children are treated, without exception, with kindness and respect, each child is made to feel so valued and important. As a parent, I have always found the lines of communication between the staff at Bush Babies and myself open always. My both boys have gained so much confidence during their time with the manager and the lovely carers- it is so wonderful to see how they are growing in confidence and I attribute much of this development to the way they are cared for and taught whilst at Bush Babies. The level of care and dedication displayed by the manager and the staff is second to none.

I recommend Bush Babies Leicester Oadby in the highest of terms.

I decided to write a review about Bush Babies in Oadby because my daughter is now 3 and a half and she has been going there since she was 1 years old. She is a very shy girl. The staff at the nursery are very friendly and caring, which shows on my daughter as she loves going there and doing all the fun activities they do. She talks about what they did each time she goes. They handled her shyness very well and encouraged her to be involved in all the activities.This has helped to build up her confidence with communication.
I also had a lot of support from management. As a working mother, I also study, and thanks to the nursery I am able to carry on. They are very flexible with the days my daughter can come in as long as they get days booked in advance, which is understandable. This is one of their great benefits and I would recommend this nursery to my family and friends. I am very happy with the service and I feel very relaxed when at work as I know she is enjoying herself and is well looked after.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

The nursery has been absolutely fantastic with settling my child in and making me feel comfortable. They have been ever so accommodating and are very informative. They have been very professional with the care given and keeping me informed with the progress my child has been making.
