Reviews

9 Busy Bees at Morden has a Review Score of 9 (8.988)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Morden is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Morden in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.542 for Busy Bees at Morden is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.542

  • 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 4.446 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Morden is based on 5 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.446

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

Busy Bees at Morden is a welcoming and caring environment for our 2-year old daughter. The children are separated by age groups and progress as they grow up through various rooms with their friends. The excellent and friendly staff ensure personalised care for each child, which can be adapted further to discussions with parents. They keep the children entertained with diverse activities, both indoors and outside. We have seen our daughter develop in leaps and bounds since starting at Busy Bees and this can only be testament to the attention she receives and the stimulation and challenges with which she is provided. The broad range of healthy food is excellent too.

We would strongly recommend Busy Bees Morden to other parents in the area.

My son started Busy Bees Morden at the beginning of January 2016. My son settled in very well and would often cry not to leave the nursery and his key workers at the end of the day. The nursery created a home from home environment where the staff genuinely cared for your child. I was simply amazed by how well my son bonded with all the staff members. The nursery helped and assisted me with potty training and were always there to offer guidance and support as I was first-time mum. Nothing is ever too much for the staff at Busy Bees. I found every single staff member to go above and beyond their role to make sure your child's emotional and developmental needs are met. I found that each and every staff member took the time to get to know my son. It was just not his key worker that I found to be at his previous nursery.Lousie and her team are simply amazing. They have been incredibly supportive to me and my family and would highly recommend Busy Bees Morden to other parents.

I have been really impressed with the staff here. They are always soo friendly and adapt to my son's routine.
My son is comfortable going to them all and usually has a good day at nursery.
It's great they do different activities and takes them outside to the park.

My daughter attends this nursery and she is developing so well. I love how excited she is to get there every morning and the team of ladies in her class are fabulous with her. It's clean, welcoming and full of exciting toys and crafts for the kids.

My daughter has been at Busy Bees at Morden now for 3 months. The staff have been very interested in her learning, picking up on her strengths and working on her weaknesses week on week. They encourage input from parents and I particularly like their Home Learning Journal which allows me to communicate with the nursery activities which we have been doing at home so they can encourage similar in their activities. My daughter gets a great mix of activities through the day and you can see how well she is developing. The staff are very accommodating and helpful.

My first son has been attending since last spring 2016 (before he was 1 year old). He learns a lot from nursery and I enjoy seeing his development such as singing and dancing. Also, he is trying to copy other peers to do daily activities (walking, using spoons etc). What is most appreciated is that experienced staff give me very helpful advice about his health and also development. Booking appointments with the GP is very difficult but nursery's advice is always right :-) They provide his detailed report and I really enjoy it. The only small, negative point is that the garden is a bit small and faced with a big road. It's OK, but a bit noisy. (There are some parks and library locally, they sometimes go out and enjoy nature tracking).
Nursery is not cheap (obviously) but when you think about your child, spending time with other children is sometimes more fun with just being mum. Staff are very friendly and easy to talk about anything! I am happy with our choice overall.
