The central aim at Leo's is to ensure all the children have fun and are happy.

A unique part of Leo’s is their home-from-home feel: a place that a family used to call home is now a small, cosy nursery where your child’s needs will be met whatever they may be.

Childcare and curriculum are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage. They employ an Early Years Professional, who works to plan the year ahead so there's something that all the children will enjoy and benefit from. Their EYP supports the rest of the team to work with all of the children and deliver the early years curriculum.

Leo's provides an atmosphere that is loving and caring, where children learn through play whilst promoting a sense of challenge, achievement and self-confidence.

9.6 Leos Childrens Nurseries Ltd - West Bridgford has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.628)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Leos Childrens Nurseries Ltd - West Bridgford is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Leos Childrens Nurseries Ltd - West Bridgford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 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 4.628 for Leos Childrens Nurseries Ltd - West Bridgford is calculated as follows: ( (143 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 215 Ratings = 4.628

  • 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 Leos Childrens Nurseries Ltd - West Bridgford is based on 18 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 8.4 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.

Leos Nursery is a lovely nursery for my kid, the manager and staff are all very nice, friendly and supportive, they are very patient and experienced towards my kid. The only downside I would like to point out is, I wish I knew more about what my kid is doing, how is he/she is, what was his/her food and drink diary, behaviour and learning progress (through playing), and etc in the nursery. I understand the preschool class is extremely busy, so I am not talking about a report to parents on a daily basis, but maybe a monthly report? or a report after each term would be really helpful and appreciated by us.

Thank you for your review and the positive comments you have left about Leo's. In regards to updating you on your child's progress, all the staff at Leo's aim to keep you informed as to your child's progress at nursery, with daily and less frequent, but more detailed updates. We keep a folder of all children's development at Leo's which you are welcome to request to look at at any time and all staff members are happy to give you feedback at the end of the day. Obviously, home time can get busy and if none of the room staff are available, please feel free to see the ladies in the office who will be happy to help.

We also have 'The Friday Round Up' which goes out to parents every week and updates you on what each room has been doing that week.

If you have any queries about anything then please do ask a member of staff and we will be happy to reassure and advise you. Thank you.

Both of our children attended Leos and we would recommend it to anyone. The Leos owners, manager and team have created a great environment for the children's learning and development. It is friendly, well managed, safe, educational and with nutritious and tasty food. The staff are lovely and have become our friends too.

Thank you so much for your kind words Jeremy. We are so happy that we could provide such a wonderful experience for you a both your children!

Both my sons have attended Leos nursery and we've been really pleased with it.

We were initially attracted by the homely atmosphere, and I feel that this has been a lovely, caring environment for them.

The outdoor space is good with shady trees so they can be outside even in sunny weather.

Communication with parents was an area that needed improving, and the weekly updates are now really good to see.

Overall we're really happy with our choice of Leos.

Fantastic childcare - genuinely friendly, enthusiastic team - great atmosphere - happy children! We have used this nursery continuously for the last 9.5 years and have never found the experience to be anything less than exemplary. Many of the staff have been there throughout and our three boys adore them!

Leos is a welcoming and friendly nursery of the highest standard. Our son is so happy here and we are continually impressed by the home from home atmosphere and the dedicated staff.
Activities are varied and often revolve around the outdoors and creativity which is great for learning and development. Daily diary updates keep us informed of developments etc. The food is freshly prepared, plentiful and healthy...our son always eats well at Leos!
The care, warmth and understanding provided by staff to our son and to us as parents are truly outstanding and we have always felt reassured that he is attending a nursery which is so clearly providing a caring and supportive environment.
We love the weekly newsletter which keeps us in touch with all the nursery activities and offers an insight into all the fun that's being had!
We would highly recommend Leos to others, without a doubt.

Thank you so so much for this review Jenny! We are so happy we can provide such a wonderful experience for you and your son at Leo's! Our staff will be especially pleased he eats all his food!

Both my children enjoyed Leos immensely. The staff were really great with the children and always seemed happy to be there. The food was always really great and I remember enjoying the parent's samples left at the bottom of the stairs very much. We will always have great memories of Leos.

Leos is a friendly, homely nursery based in a converted house. Both of our girls have enjoyed/continue to enjoy their time there and the nursery prepared our oldest daughter well for school - in terms of being able to care for herself; being confident with others, and starting to learn letters and numbers. Our daughter (and us!) was well supported in toilet training. Leos has a lovely garden and the children spend a lot of time outside, including trips to the nearby park. Our daughter also enjoyed the externally provided tennis sessions.
The nursery is flexible in accommodating particular needs and requests, for example in switching days, making payments etc.
The nursery is well located in central West Bridgford. With no car park, parking can sometimes be a challenge but we have never found it too much of a problem.
Overall we have been happy customers for the last 5 years and would recommend the nursery to others.

The care received so far at Leo's Children's Nursery has been superb. My child adores spending time there and has built amazing relationships with the staff. Each and every member of the team, regardless of position or job role, is warm and friendly.
We love the homely feel and the rooms are well equipped with toys/activities routinely being rotated to keep things interesting for the children.
Thank you.

We are so glad you have had such a positive experience at Leo's and we absolutely adore your daughter!!

Invoices could be improved as it is hard to understand.
Getting charged when your child does not attend due to holidays is not fair.
Otherwise, very happy with Leos. A great team. Activities are great and children just love it.

My son and daughter have both attended Leos from 2010. The nursery is relatively small and has a home like feel, all the staff know all the children and my husband and I have always had a lovely rapport with the staff.
My children really love it and have developed fantastically. The nursery is always making changes to their facilities and provision, sometimes big, sometimes small but always to improve.
I'll be genuinely sad when my youngest moves on to school in September!

We are glad we can provide such a wonderful service! We will miss you too

Caring environment, nurturing and supportive. Lovely, approachable staff who clearly care about and enjoy working with children.
Excellent creative crafting and authenticity.
Sometimes children may need a bit more direction and encouragement to get involved in a wide range of activities rather than just sticking with what they know.

Thanks for your feedback and we will strive to ensure all staff are encouraging children to step out of their comfort zone!

Really friendly staff who care a lot about the children. They take a great deal of care to settle them and to engage the children in activities they enjoy and that stimulate them.
The staff are always happy to listen to concerns and ideas.
The food is excellent, good variety and quality.
There's lots of time outside in the lovely garden.
It's a very homely atmosphere and we have always been happy to leave our children there, even when one of our children took a really long time to settle.

We are glad, even though it took time for one of your children to settle, that you still persevered and now have two happy children at Leo's. Thank you for a lovely review and we will continue to work hard to make Leo's a wonderful place for your children

Excellent nursery and staff, right through from the manager to the carers and chef. Leos is a caring and nurturing environment that focuses on our children's happiness. A personal approach, with experienced staff who genuinely care about the children. The manager also regularly interacts with the children and doesn't just stay in the office as seen in other nurseries, which is great.
Childcare is expensive and I would, of course, love it to be cheaper, and that fees aren't increased, but I never feel that Leos simply exists to take our money (again like some other nurseries), with the children always being placed first by the staff.

Overall I can't recommend Leos highly enough.

We really try to add those special touches for your children and are so happy that you appreciate them and your child is enjoying their time at Leo's!

All the staff at the nursery have really made an effort to get to know our daughter, get to know her routine and understand what she likes and dislikes. They've made us feel confident leaving her in their care by recording what she's been doing in the day, any issues and some nice personal touches like when she has taken steps or said words. This all adds to the personal feeling we get from the nursery as a whole which is in a nice setting and feels very much like home.

Leos is a Lovely nursery, brilliant staff and a very happy environment. Very happy leaving my child who was very scared but settled in due to the staff and how they adapt to each child individually.
They are very loving and show each child attention. My child is very happy at Leos.

I only pick my step-daughter up occasionally, but I am always so impressed at what she has been up to during the day and how much she has come on over her time there. She is always talking about what she has been doing at nursery and all of her friends.

My niece went to Leo's for 3 years and had 3 happy years there. The staff were always friendly, helpful and informative. They helped her grow into the lovely girl she is now! Thank you Leo's for all of your hard work.
