8.8 Bush Babies - Leicester Thurmaston has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.834)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Bush Babies - Leicester Thurmaston 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bush Babies - Leicester Thurmaston in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 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 4.851 for Bush Babies - Leicester Thurmaston is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.851

  • 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 3.983 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bush Babies - Leicester Thurmaston 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.233

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

My children are very happy at nursery, have formed lovely bonds and go happily in each morning; the staff give them a lively and warm welcome which makes them feel confident and happy to be at nursery. The range of activities is wonderful and level of imagination put into play is brilliant and impressive; all the staff have so much enthusiasm and energy for the children, treating each child as an individual. When problems have arisen e.g. one of mine was not eating well, the staff came to me with plans and suggestions as to how we can help him at meal times. The meals are excellent. Balanced and nutritious menus with children offered seconds if they finish and still hungry. I'm happy that good table manners etc are strongly encouraged. Plenty of fresh fruit and veg. Outside has plenty of different zones for the children to use their imagination and enjoy the play equipment as well. I'm also really pleased that they have now introduced PE/exercise for the older children twice per week.

Our twin boys have attended since March 2015. The nursery has kindly offered us sibling discount too. Both had brilliant Key Workers from day 1 which we value. All staff are very friendly and approachable.This is one aspect of the nursery that made us decide to send our boys there. Knowing that our boys will be looked after. The Key Workers have built excellent relationships with our son's. Communicated effectively at parents evening and discussed the EYFS. Great support and advice regarding 'sleep training at home', 'fussy eating' and more recently 'toilet training'. Great daily feedback on what activities your child has done, when they have slept, what they have eaten and recently toilet training. Provided reassurance to any concerns or worries we have had in the past regarding the boys which we really have valued. A wide range of activities that they deliver. Boys learnt to walk, to sitting on the toilet. They both enjoy their time there and have produced some fantastic artwork too. Thanks.

My child loves coming to nursery. He has a very special bond with staff, especially his key worker who he is happy to be passed over to without getting upset and will wave us goodbye. The care is fantastic! The staff are very nurturing and I feel safe leaving my child with them. I love receiving all of the artwork and photos of activities that he has participated in! All staff throughout the rooms will acknowledge him and always say hello. Communication between myself and the staff is great! They always keep me informed on what he has done throughout the day, what he has eaten etc.
