The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Carshalton Beeches is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Carshalton Beeches in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.725 for Busy Bees at Carshalton Beeches is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.725

  • 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 3.972 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Carshalton Beeches is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.222

  • 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 Carshalton Beeches

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 6 months old - she is now 2.5 years and she absolutely adores it. The staff are friendly and genuinely seem to care about the children in their care. My daughter regularly sees the same faces and I get detailed updates on her day every evening at pick up.

I love that the nursery is far away from main roads and is nice and quiet, and I also love the varied menu that they serve - my daughter happily eats (almost!) everything that is served to her! I would 100% recommend this nursery to other mums in the area.

As a first-time mum, I loved the reassurance I got from the staff that my son was happy and settled. Every time I walk into the setting I get a warm welcome, followed by happy faces. I love the idea that my son sees the same face every time he attends.

Both our girls have attended Busy Bees and love it. The staff are super friendly and helpful and we feel very lucky we have found childcare that has worked out so well. Our youngest cries on non-nursery days or did. In the end we had to let her go full time.

My oldest child commenced his journey at this nursery at one year old. The staff are all caring and passionate about ensuring the children enjoy their time at nursery. If a problem does arise it is dealt with promptly. There is continuous feedback to parents via collection updates, parents evenings and the Busy Bees at Carshalton Beeches parent/ nursery book.

The children are provided with a wide range of activities to take part in which supports their development. Overall I would highly recommend this nursery.

My daughter has been at Busy Bees Carshalton for nearly a year. From our preliminary visit I got a good feel about the place, the building is lovely but what I absolutely loved was the individual gardens for each room. The environment is just a home from home set in a quiet residential cul de sac. The nursery staff were fantastic at settling her in before she started with four visits gradually getting longer each time (and this was repeated when she moved rooms). The staff are absolutely amazing and a credit to the company - through feedback every day I pick her up and always with a cheerful smile on their faces! The chef is as equally talented with a tasty nutritional menu! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter has been attending the Busy Bees nursery in Carshalton for over a year now and has been placed in two rooms so far. Both times, the room facilities have been amazing, as has the staffing. My daughter has only had 2 key workers - one for each room. She attends full time and thoroughly enjoys her time there, including the menu which is tasty and diverse. The management of the overall nursery always delivers a high standard of care. The nursery also provides extra activities such as French and drama lessons, which we really appreciate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to anyone.

Since day one my son and I have experienced the warmth and efficiency from Busy Bees staff during what can be an anxious time. Now over a year at the nursery the staff have done their utmost to assist in my son's health issues and dietary alterations as well as to update on integral development on an individual basis.
Although there have been recent changes to the structure and staff my son has continued to feel settled and secure. Communication on changes with parents is essential and really reassuring.
Busy Bees Carshalton Beeches you're doing a great job!

My daughter started at Busy Bees when she was just 9 months old. Every room she has been in she has been well looked after by the loving and caring staff there. I like how all the staff know who she is even staff members that I don't know! There is a real family feel about the nursery which is what both myself and my husband wanted for our daughter.
