Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.81 for Busy Bees at The Rye is calculated as follows: ( (68 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.81

  • 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 4.375 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at The Rye 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.375

A first time mum and teacher by profession, you can imagine the anxiety of choosing the right nursery for my son. Research and checks done, we payed a visit to Busy Bees the Rye. To our great joy and surprise, our one year old chose the nursery! He was so comfortable, he didn’t notice our absence as his dad and I continued viewing the nursery, while he stayed playing. The indoor and outdoor space is lovely and well equipped. Brilliant for learning and play. The staff are very competent and supportive, they give great care to each child and are attentive.

Once on dropping off my son, I witnessed the nursery during a fire drill which left me so overwhelmed with respect and appreciation towards this establishment. Our son has learned so much since joining Busy Bees. One thing he’s always commended on when people meet him for the first time is his confidence and that he interacts well with other children and adults alike.
We know our son is happy, safe and thriving at Busy Bees the Rye.

My daughter has attended Busy Bees since she turned 1. She's now nearly 3 and has grown tremendously in confidence thanks to the nursery. This is a nursery you can trust to fully care for your child, and they seem to me to strike the right balance in terms of nurturing and yet also encouraging your child to develop and explore new things (the food is marvellous and always as good as you would make at home). Several members of staff are so utterly dedicated that the love really shines right out of them. I have no doubts that she'll carry on developing extremely well - both emotionally and intellectually thanks to Busy Bees. It really is such a relief to have it.

My daughter has attended Busy Bees at The Rye since she was 10 months old and is now turning 4. The care she has received in that time has been outstanding.

The staff are kind, caring and nurturing, I am happy to leave my daughter each day, confident that she will be stimulated and very well looked after.

The food provided is nutritious and the children are encouraged to try new things.

The garden facility is great and allows easy access to fresh air every day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Busy Bees.

My child has developed extremely well at the nursery and all the staff are brilliant.
Very warm and welcoming whenever I pick up.
Bright and airy with very big rooms which the little ones love and can all play in.
The garden is also fabulous so very lucky we found this nursery.

My son has been going full time since he was 11 months old and he has just entered preschool having turned 3 at the beginning of summer. The manager and her team have been instrumental in his development and I'm pleased to say he is a happy, bright and confident child, thanks in no small part to their work. He loves going and has many friends. He eats incredibly well and is very well cared for. The team there - both management and care giving - have responded quickly and capably to his evolving needs. They have instilled a sense of self and encouraged my son's imagination and curiosity. In short, they are a team I trust to help me raise my son.
