Reviews

9.3 Busy Bees in Browns Wood has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.297)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Browns Wood is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Browns Wood in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 5 for Busy Bees in Browns Wood is calculated as follows: ( (84 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 5

  • 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 4.297 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Browns Wood 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 20.2 positive Reviews (101 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 20.2 Target = 0.297

  • 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 in Browns Wood

  • Mother of Child
    7

Busy Bees have done an amazing job in helping my one-year-old son settle into nursery.
All of the key workers have an amazing attitude and are very approachable.
The space they have to play is huge - far greater than other nurseries we looked at!
This allows my son to roam around and explore all the different areas such as messy play, building block, musical and reading.
Their catering is fabulous, my one-year-old eats better than I do!
The menus change seasonally and are always nutritionally balanced.
When I arrive at the end of the day, my son is happy and content.
Thank you Busy Bees, Browns Wood!

I have two children who attend the nursery. I cannot rate the nursery enough!
My children have thrived and made excellent progress at the setting, the whole entire team from Manager to room staff are friendly, passionate and genuinely care about the children and I feel valued as a parent and fantastic communication from the staff. Extremely dedicated team and really amazing childcare, nothing is too much trouble. Food is amazing and I particularly like the fact that the chef supports children to tend to fruit and veg grown on site. Key person approach is amazing at this nursery.

My daughter has been attending Busy Bees since September 2016. She absolutely loves going to nursery. She is there 3 full days a week and wakes up excited to go to nursery to see her friends and her teachers. She has made so many friends and adores her teachers. She is always talking about nursery and things she has done at nursery. She is growing into such a lovely and clever little girl. The girls are amazing in toddler room and will happily continue with anything I've been doing at home and are so understanding with everything.

My little girl has been attending Busy Bees for 6months and we can safely say she absolutely loves Busy Bees.
She absolutely adores her keyworker and all the staff and children within the nursery.
We couldn't ask for a better nursery for our little girl, who with the love and support and nourishment of Busy Bees is growing into a polite, intelligent young lady!

My daughter has been attending Busy Bees in Browns Wood for just over a year. She really enjoys going, every day she gets excited to go in and see her friends, and staff alike!
The staff here are amazing, they seem to really love the children they look after, and always greet us with a smile and a morning! They know my daughter well, and always feedback at the end of a session with what she's enjoyed doing.
I certainly would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for care for their children!

My daughter has been at Busy Bees in Browns Wood since she was 8 months - she is now nearly 2 and I honestly could not be happier with the choice of nursery we decided on. All the staff are great and you can tell they have a passion to work with young children and are not just there as a day job. The manager is lovely and always makes an effort with parents and children! My little girl loves coming to nursery and has never shown she doesn't want to be there which makes things so much easier and happier for us both! Definitely recommend this nursery!

My children love attending this nursery. My eldest has just moved to school and he was more than ready, thanks to the staff at the nursery. He still talks about his time at nursery and loves to go back to collect his brother.
The staff are so friendly and know both my children so well. They are there to provide me with advice and support where needed and always give feedback about my son's day. This extends to the management team who are always on hand to discuss any questions I may have.
My youngest has thrived attending nursery, he loves the amazing garden and is a big fan of the food!
The nursery has had fabulous resources and my son has often been out for walks in the local area. I highly recommend the nursery.
