Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 5 for Bumble Bee Montessori is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 5

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 Bumble Bee Montessori is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 3 positive Reviews (15 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 3 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.

Reviewer Connection to Bumble Bee Montessori

  • Mother of Child
    6

This is a great nursery. When my son started nursery he did not speak English. However, all the staff made him feel at ease and he settled well. All staff are welcoming, friendly, caring, hardworking and kids safety and well being is at the core of their services. My son has progressed in leaps and bounds since he started nursery two years ago. At the end of each session teachers always give feed back to the parents and work with you to achieve various developmental milestones. I cannot recommend this nursery enough and am grateful to the staff for providing a home away from home for my son.

This is the best place one can send their little ones to. Parting with children at such a young age is always challenging for parents. But there is no better place than Bumble Bee Montessori to trust your child with. My older one came here and I don't regret a single day that she was here. It was an automatic choice for the youngest one hence. More power to the team.

The staff at Bumble Bee Montessori are absolutely brilliant. They take time to know your child and really work hard at ensuring that they get the most out of the children. The children have an amazing time and all are very disciplined. They are constantly stimulated with a variety of activities from singing to maths. They organise 2 trips a year, which the kids love and a brilliant nativity play. Whenever I have seen the nursery, it is always very clean and organised. The staff are so nurturing and I count myself lucky that my son attends Bumble Bee Montessori.

Our experience of this nursery is that it has provided our child care, security, love and helped with learning and development and brought out a great confidence in them. Our child is very happy and secure there and we, as parents, are very happy with the nursery and all staff as they provide a first class service for the child and family. We are truly grateful to them for looking after our child and have complete trust in what they do and provide. They really care.

This is a fantastic nursery. The staff all work very hard in ensuring that the children are well cared for and always have the children's best interest at heart. My son feels confident and loves going to nursery, as did my daughter a number of years ago. My son settled in very well and the facilities made it feel like a home environment, which really supported this. The staff will always listen to you and will provide supportive strategies to encourage the children to attain their developmental milestones. My son has developed in so many ways. He is confident and is progressing well and this nursery has contributed to this. I cannot recommend this nursery enough and only wish they would open a Primary free school!

My kids experience at this nursery has been fantastic. They love attending and enjoy their time there. Both of my kids have learnt so much and have excelled their learning ability due to the teacher's dedication and time to the children. My son could hardly speak and since attending, his speech has improved dramatically. They look after the children so well and I feel so comfortable and happy to see my kids happy. I recommend this nursery to everyone. It is fantastic.
