The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Bush Babies - Leicester Wigston Magna is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bush Babies - Leicester Wigston Magna in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.708 for Bush Babies - Leicester Wigston Magna is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 4.12 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bush Babies - Leicester Wigston Magna is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.370

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

I have been bringing my little boy here since the beginning of July and would highly recommend this nursery to anyone that's looking to put their children into a nursery. Brilliant nursery, best one around the area. My little boy has come home learning new things he has never learnt before. The staff are lovely and always keep parents informed of anything.

My daughter has been coming to the nursery for a year and a half now and she has enjoyed making new friends and formed good relationships with her key worker and peers in the room. She enjoys doing a wide range of activities with the staff and loves to tell me about the fun things she does through out the day. My daughter has progressed well since being at the nursery and shown signs of achievement in her learning.

My son has been attending Busy Bees Wigston since he was 6 months old and he is now nearly 3. I would highly recommend this nursery, due to the staff being really friendly, supportive and helpful.

Due to my son has a big appetite, the variety of the fresh meals provided each day is fantastic and extra portions are often provided.

When collecting my son at the end of each day, one of the staff will provide a full list of; meals for the day, activities he has taken part in and how many times he has been to the toilet.

Overall the nursery fees are reasonable, aIthough I benefit from a reduction due to using the nursery's full-time service, which works out a nice little saving compared to paying per hour or per half day.
