The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for The Battersea Nursery and Pre-School 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Battersea Nursery and Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 17 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 4.828 for The Battersea Nursery and Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (172 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.828

  • 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 4.934 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Battersea Nursery and Pre-School is based on 17 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 18.2 positive Reviews (91 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 18.2 Target = 0.934

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

It is a new and spacious nursery with very friendly staff and nurses who have a genuine interest in the children's preferences. They make sure that my child goes to sleep even though it was difficult during the first couple of weeks. Thank you! I would definitely recommend this nursery for toddlers, being a mom of a 9-month old baby girl.

The nursery is a clean, safe and extremely welcoming space. Our son couldn’t be happier here and the staff go above and beyond to accommodate your child’s individual preferences. We are more than satisfied with the standard held here and feel it is a little hidden gem in London! Our son is thriving in this environment and we have absolute confidence in the care given to him. Other huge benefits include clean changes of clothes, nappies and food/formula are provided and cooked on site and free from extra charges. Also soon to come is meals to take away on collection. They also have a wonderful outdoor play space with lots of great toys.

We could not be happier with Busy Bee's Nursery. Everything about the nursery is amazing, from the staff to the facilities, which are all top notch. Our daughters are in the baby room at the moment but we have seen all of the other rooms and staff in those rooms that they will progress into and they are all great.

Out of the nursery’s my nephew has attended, this one tops them all. The resources are amazing and the staff are great. He goes to the garden every day and loves the big sand pit they have. The management team are helpful and friendly and my nephew is keen to go every day.

My daughter has attended The Battersea Nursery since she was 11 months old and I could not be happier with the outcome. The setting is modern and clean and the staff is extremely caring and professional. My daughter is always happy when I pick her up at the end of the day. I definitely recommend this nursery.

My son settled in very well. All the spaces have natural daylight with an outdoor play area. The nursery is very secure as they have a fob system in place. All the staff are very friendly and attentive and go the extra mile. The new Nursery Manager has lots of plans in the pipeline to make it the best in class. Above all, the children are very happy! Very happy daddy!

Brand new nursery! Bright big rooms, lovely toys (e.g. lots of wooden toys, books, water and sand tables, dress-up, musical instruments and many more).
Nice outdoor play area (kids have designated areas outdoors depending on age group - so small ones are not getting run over by bigger kids).

Very nice, loving and caring staff. My daughter is very fond of them and always has a great time.

Lots of activities planned.

They provide everything. Change of clothes, nappies, wipes, wellies, rain clothes etc.

Soon will even offer meals to take home.

Very happy with this nursery!

I am absolutely delighted with the staff at Busy Bees Battersea Nursery. I find all of them to be extremely accommodating to my little girl's needs. They actually discipline the children in a friendly manner so essentially they are doing half of my job, to which I am forever grateful! The security system in place is outstanding, I was given a tiny device at the start allowing me access to the second door into the building so no fuss on door codes etc. I especially love the Parentzone website which provides me and my husband with an insight of my little one's day at the nursery with images uploaded and updates of her personal development online whilst I'm at work. I have had my child at the nursery for the past 1 month and half but already I have noticed the positive difference in her behaviour and development. As a mother who was initially extremely sceptical of taking my toddler to nursery, I can firmly say that I would undoubtedly recommend any mother I know to this super clean, super trendy 5* nursery.

Great, modern and clean set up with lots of room for our kids to play in both in and outdoors. This is made even better by very friendly and experienced staff. We have two kids there full time and they are always very attentive to each of them. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

My little one started Busy Bees in September and has settled in really well and quickly. Staff are always warm and friendly and great if little one is feeling unsettled. Facilities are fantastic with so many activities for children to enjoy in such a big bright space. Parents Portal Online is a great idea to see day to day progress and photos. Would recommend.

I just wanted to say a very big ‘Thank You’ for allowing us to join the Busy Bees, Battersea open day. Everyone in your team pulled out all the stops, the end result being that it was a complete success - please extend our thanks to everyone who made this possible!

Our son's highlight was that he met Mr Snowman, although he was a bit unsure in the beginning. Our highlights were that we got to see our son play with his classmates and also we got to meet their parents too!

Everyone that came including prospective parents contributed to all the fun. I am certain that this is the start of developing friendships with both parents and teachers as we start to build on our Busy Bees Battersea community!

Our son has been attending Busy Bees Battersea as he turned 6 months on a full-time basis and settled immediately. The facilities are superb and definitely 5-star standard!

Once again, thank you for bringing everyone together - well done!
