Reviews

8.7 Busy Bees Day Nursery at Walthamstow has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.654)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees Day Nursery at Walthamstow 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees Day Nursery at Walthamstow in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 6 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 4.44 for Busy Bees Day Nursery at Walthamstow is calculated as follows: ( (38 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.44

  • 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 4.214 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees Day Nursery at Walthamstow is based on 6 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 28 positive Reviews (140 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 28 Target = 0.214

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

My child started the first week in January 2017, the settleling period was handled extremely well by the staff members of the nursery and every step of the way the staff were very supportive and reassuring to both parents.

The staff are all genuinely nice and welcoming and very informative about our child's progression. Our child development has been greatly increased since starting at this nursery. The care of our child is outstanding and also the food menu and choices are very good. Most days when we pick our child up they have a good nap and often go bed much earlier than usual.

The expenses are a big dent in our finances, however, our son has just turned 2 has been there for about 8 months. We feel that he is happy there and is loved and looked after. The management and staff are multicultural and great.

Busy Bees (Walthamstow) is a perfect environment for our children to enjoy/play and learn. There is a significant improvement on their overall development and interactions with other children since they joined the nursery. We believe this is due to the excellent care and education provided by the nursery. The management and staff are a friendly family, which creates a good relationship between parents and nursery to help children feel happy and settled.

Happy with the care my son receives. The key worker is very friendly and supports me as a parent. My son always comes home and tells me what activities he has done and always seems like he is enjoying himself.

My child's key worker has done a good job to help my child transition quickly to pre school. Language has improved rapidly in the last few months in pre school. Potty training was exceptional - my child now uses the toilet by himself but needs a little assistance to clean his bum. He is more confident and expresses himself more freely. He identities colours beyond the red blue yellow and green and that has been amazing in the last few months. brilliant work done.
