Reviews

6.7 Busy Bees at Hammersmith has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.671)

The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Hammersmith is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Hammersmith in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.3 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.403 for Busy Bees at Hammersmith is calculated as follows: ( (38 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.403

  • 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 2.268 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Hammersmith is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.536 , then divided by 2 = 0.268

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

Reviewer Connection to Busy Bees at Hammersmith

  • Mother of Child
    6

The reason for not scoring extremely likely is down to the lack of outdoor area, which is not in my view sufficiently mitigated by walks or visit to the park.
In particular, in summer, days are considered too hot or too sunny and it's when the kids need to enjoy some outdoor activities with the appropriate sun cream hat and water supply.

Chloe Wilkes, Marketing Admin at Busy Bees at Hammersmith responded to this review on 09 Dec 2016:

Thank you for your review, we take your comments on board

Busy Bees nursery Hammersmith is a fantastic nursery for my daughter . She is now in preschool and is always happy to be at nursery. The staff are caring and attentive to all the children's needs. Her number recognition, writing and letter recognition are improving daily and because of the relationship with the staff we are able to keep the learning going in the same vain. A great team of carers and a fantastic manager at the helm.

"Mummy I want to go to nursery today" - what more could a parent want to hear when they are getting ready to drop off their child and go to work? Perhaps also to collect them and hear "I had fun playing, eating yummy food, walking around Hammersmith looking for Christmas trees and learning to write my name". My daughter loves nursery, thanks to the individual care and enthusiasm of the staff, who really make an effort to get to know the children personally and cater to their specific interests and abilities. Her language is superb for her age and she shares beautifully with others... and I can enjoy a day at work knowing that she is in safe, caring hands, having fun and learning lots.

Much improved over recent months and staff are working hard to raise standards. More feedback on actual activities and on what we can do at home to underpin learning would useful. Other than that we are happy with the warmth that the staff show to the children.

After hearing many good reviews about Busy Bees nursery in Hammersmith. I felt compelled to enrol my daughter there which has turned out to be a very great and rewarding decision. My daughter loves going there and the staff are all truly wonderful and were exceptional at helping her to settle in successfully. I highly recommend this nursery to any parent.

Busy Bee Hammersmith is amazing. Such a nice bunch of people that work there. Everyone is always friendly and accommodating. I don't need to worry about my child when I drop him there. He loves the team and kids and activities. I'm very happy that they had a paint job as it does makes it look much nicer and creates a better environment for everyone. Best nursery ever.

One tip, if there is an event maybe we can communicate that a bit earlier and have something that's visible in the nursery. Like a printout or something.
