The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Bush Babies - Leicester South Wigston 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bush Babies - Leicester South Wigston in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 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 4.842 for Bush Babies - Leicester South Wigston is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bush Babies - Leicester South Wigston is based on 10 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.667

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

My little girl has been at Busy Bees since she was 10 months and the relationship with her key workers is essential. Her current keyworker works amazing with my daughter. The whole staff team work well and since being there our little girl is blossoming.

The nursery is well equipped with staff and resources. Staff are well-mannered, friendly and helpful. The children's learning, development, and happiness are really at the forefront of this establishment. My child thoroughly enjoys their time at nursery, they are encouraged to learn, play and interact with others in a positive way. The food is of good quality with all tastes/needs catered for.

I moved to Leicester in November from Lancashire. My 2 year old daughter had to leave her nursery up north on the Friday and start her new nursery Busy Bees on the Monday having no settling in time.

The staff were extremely helpful and supportive to my daughter and she settled in instantly. Nothing is ever to much trouble and I find them to be very accommodating. They provide daily updates on what my daughter has been doing and her progression. They work closely with me to ensure the same discipline and encouragement is carried out at nursery as at home and follow routines.

I cannot thank the staff enough for their help and support to me as a single parent.

My daughter loves this nursery and I can't see her going anywhere else. It has really helped her to come out of her shell and build her confidence no end. I would highly recommend this nursery...It's just a shame I can't afford to send her more often.

My child attends this nursery and has been with the nursery before he was 1 when he was under Bush Babies, he's now 4 and leaving for school this year, as a mother it's very worrying to be leaving a child when you're not there but the welcoming and trust you receive from the manager and staff at Busy Bees, Bush Babies - Leicester South Wigston is very overwhelming and makes you feel happy when leaving your child. The manager is great and is very understanding and great with the kids as are all the staff there, definitely a credit to the company, my son has achieved so much within the nursery and is very ready to be going to school with all the work the nursery puts in with the children, also is very very happy and settled here.

We were so thrilled to have our son attend Busy Bee's South Wigston and we will be sad to leave this wonderful nursery. We were visiting from out of town for a family emergency and were looking for a last minute full-time nursery spot for our 2-year-old for a few weeks. Busy Bee's were incredibly accommodating and supportive, providing us with a safe place for our son, where we knew he was in excellent hands, so we could focus on dealing with our family circumstances. The staff are incredibly friendly and kind to us and our son, the nursery is wonderful and our son raves about the food. He will miss his nursery teachers and so will we. We thoroughly recommend this nursery to any prospective parents.

The staff are always happy to discuss my child's attainment and progress. It was great being able to attend a parents evening for her. I would recommend the nursery to anyone.

I would definitely recommend Busy Bee's Nursery. The staff are lovely and friendly, they do plenty of activities with the children and I feel that my Daughter has developed enormously since attending Busy Bees. The nursery is clean and hygienic with plenty of facilities to keep the children occupied.
