Reviews

9.9 Minibugs Nurseries (Liskeard) has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.936)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Minibugs Nurseries (Liskeard) 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 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Minibugs Nurseries (Liskeard) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 19 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 4.936 for Minibugs Nurseries (Liskeard) is calculated as follows: ( (280 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 297 Ratings = 4.936

  • 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 Minibugs Nurseries (Liskeard) is based on 19 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 10.2 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.

The staff at Minibugs Liskeard are very caring, enthusiastic and always give me a breakdown of what my children have been up to every day. My children have been attending for 2 months now and have settled in very well. They are always happy to go to nursery, in fact, they love it! They play outside most days and love the wide variety of activities, the messier the better!
The only thing that I sometimes query is how much food my son has had, as he has a big appetite most of the time and I think he can always eat more. The staff are adjusting his portion sizes accordingly and this seems to be going well now.
Overall, I am happy with the nursery and would recommend it to others, it is a nice size with enough children to build social skills but without being too busy.

Thank you for your review of Minibugs Nursery Liskeard.

It is really important for us to receive feedback from our parents/carers so that we can continually improve our nursery care and environment.
We are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have been receiving from our registered parents/carers and look forward to working in partnership with all our families to support the children’s learning and development journey.

Minibugs Nursery Team

Every parent who uses carer services faces the dilemma of leaving their child in the care of an unknown quantity. We (my partner and I) were very careful in our initial visits to nurseries, as we want only the very best for our children. Minibugs staff were not only welcoming, but very professional from day one. The facilities both inside and out are fantastic for little children. We knew from the very first taster day, that Minibugs would and is the right place for our child.

There have been some changes in staff over the time we have used Minibugs, but the care and interactions have never been in deficit. New members are just as dedicated and show the children both love and understanding. The feedback from the staff is excellent. In my professional capacity, I observe the behavioural interactions of adults and children. I have the utmost respect for the dedication of all concerned at Minibugs and can only recommend that any interested parent consider this nursery.

My daughter has been coming here now for 6 months. She has grown so much and they are amazing at focusing on her strengths but also improving where needed. They have encouraged her to socialise and her speech is amazing. Each day we get a detailed chat about what she's been up to and it really encourages me. Including the homemade meals she gets each day. Very happy girlie means happy mummy. All thanks to the extra effort put in by the staff.

Minibugs Nursery Team

Our son has been going to Liskeard Minibugs for over a year now, he is age 2 and a half and absolutely loves his time there. He is being assessed by the early years team and a speech therapist and the nursery have done everything they possibly can to ensure his development is monitored and recorded to work to the guidelines set out by the two teams. I know with confidence each of his sessions are tailored to our son's needs and that he is happy and progressing in his own way. The staff are friendly and attentive to the needs of the child and also the parents, my son has formed such a lovely bond with them all. The daily activities are varied and exciting and all recorded daily so we, as parents know what our child has been up to-from what they ate to what time they took a nap.
We are so glad we chose Minibugs, that first apprehensive day when you leave your child for the first time seems to be a lifetime away-now, our son has flourished!

My daughter has been going to Minibugs for over a year now. She has definitely benefited from being there. She has made some amazing friends and everyone even parents know her name! She has come along way with all aspects of her learning, she very much enjoys the new Forest school and she loves being outdoors a lot. All the members of staff past and present are amazing! Even the workmen (who have been doing some amazing work). My daughter has been loving the outdoor mud kitchen and the outdoor space in general. I can honestly say I have never had any problems with the nursery.

My daughter attends Minibugs Liskeard and has absolutely thrived since starting. She loves all the staff and loves telling me about all her friends and the exciting things she has been doing. She absolutely loves Forest school and I think it's brilliant that they spend so much time outside. All the staff are very helpful and I leave feeling confident that my daughter is being looked after professionally and with love.

After having a bad experience with a different nursery, I wasn't sure if I wanted to send my daughter to another nursery but so glad I did. Minibugs are amazing, she has come on so much in the last 6 months and begs me to go every day. Highly recommended and all the girls are lovely and you receive an email on the days the child goes keeping you updated on your child's progress.

Minibugs Nursery Team

My son has been at Minibugs for almost a year now and he absolutely adores it! He goes two days a week. Every morning (even on non-nursery days) he asks to go. He's always happy going in and I've never had a problem or worries leaving him, even on his first day I felt comfortable. All the amazing workers there are friendly, caring and more than happy to answer any questions. My son has been slightly slower with his speech, the nursery has been amazing with support and advice with anything and everything! They are flexible and have catered to any of our needs! They send out an email after every session he has, with a mini diary of his day, sometimes it even contains photos which is a brilliant idea and I almost feel involved in his day! As a first time mum, I thought my son going to a nursery would be so difficult but Minibugs have just been simply incredible! Couldn't recommend this nursery and all their staff highly enough! Thank you Minibugs Liskeard, for everything you do!

Minibugs nursery in Liskeard is by far the best nursery. The staff go above and beyond for me and my son. His confidence and ability to do things have become so much better since being at Minibugs from April 2017. I wish I had known about it sooner. All the staff look after the children as I would look after my children. I leave my son each day and I feel relaxed that he is in a loving caring and safe environment. Basically, I could write lots of things here that are brilliant but all I have to say is as a parent definitely send your children to Minibugs.

The staff are brilliant with my daughter who has a developmental delay. She has really thrived since being at Minibugs and this is down to the range of activities on offer and the attention the staff give the children. They work really hard to meet her needs and set developmental goals. There is lots of outdoor play and the outside area is amazing, lots of space. The rooms are big and airy and children are encouraged to choose their own play as well as having set activities. This is a massive step up from her last nursery which I didn't realise until I moved her here.

Really happy with this nursery. My son took a while to settle in but the staff re-assured him and within a few minutes of me leaving, my son was fine and happily playing with the other children. I get full updates and reviews on how my son is progressing and photo evidence which is lovely.

My sister goes to nursery here and she loves it and so does my daughter who only goes one day a week. She really enjoys herself when playing in and outside. Very good at giving food she can eat. Most of the time she will eat it all and enjoys playing with other children.

When I moved into the area I was little anxious for my son starting a new nursery. But on his first day, they made him so welcome at the nursery, which made him nice and calm.
Now he's been there for a month and he has settled in very well and the staff are very friendly.
One happy mum.

My son has been attending Minibugs Nurseries for 3 weeks now and he absolutely loves it.
It has been completely refurbished with a lovely outdoors area.
I was confident about sending him there as I know the manager and some of the staff from a previous nursery. They are well organised and friendly and I've had no concerns.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to other parents.

My grandson loves going to Minibugs, the management and staff are all amazing and make you feel very welcome. They all spend time with you letting you know how the children are getting on and what they have been doing in each session. My grandson is so excited to go in each session and goes straight off to play, we have had no problems with him settling in.

We have a funded place for our son and he is now into his third week at Minibugs in Liskeard. We are thrilled so far by everything.
Our son thoroughly enjoys his sessions there,and having only just turned two and previously only ever staying with myself, Daddy or Nanna, he has quickly transitioned into the nursery. This is solely down to each of the nursery staff. They are all fantastic and all seem to genuinely love their jobs and the children under their care. My son recognises the safe and friendly environment that the staff have created, and is thoroughly flourishing as a result. They seem keen to embrace each child's interests and positively encourage them in milestones, big or small. And they have all been great giving us lots of feedback after each session (even during sessions when Mummy felt anxious!)
We love the outdoor area, which is just amazing. My son loves to run down the ramp and be able to run wild in an area where he is completely safe to do so.
