Reviews

9.3 Busy Bees at Milton Keynes on Saxon Street has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.273)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Milton Keynes on Saxon Street is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Milton Keynes on Saxon Street in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 13 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 4.596 for Busy Bees at Milton Keynes on Saxon Street is calculated as follows: ( (127 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.596

  • 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 4.677 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Milton Keynes on Saxon Street is based on 13 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 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.677

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

My second child came to this nursery when she was nine months old and settled in so well, the staff were fantastic with her, she has now left and is enjoying school. My youngest child now attends the nursery and loves it just has much as her older sister. All the staff are so friendly so I'm sure she will do well too.

I had originally enrolled my 5-month old into another nursery but after just 2 settle days we were both upset! I booked in to have a visit to Busy Bees and was made to feel so welcome straight away and my son was so relaxed on his settle sessions. I have no worries about leaving my son in their capable hands

My son has been with Busy Bees since he was 6 months old and has flourished under their guidance. They put me completely at ease leaving him to return to work, and I can't believe he will be leaving soon to head to school! The staff are lovely and appreciate each child for the individual they are.

We chose the nursery because it was close to my work, but found staff were kind, even at times when there have been some changes. Our daughter likes to go to the nursery. We have been very pleased with the new refurbishment and it's nicer and cleaner at the moment since the management has changed. I will definitely recommend it to friends.

Very happy with Busy Bees, this is our first time using Busy Bees as we have the one child. The settling in period worked very well and the manager has always been helpful and friendly on every occasion I have seen her.

All in all very happy, the only thing I would say which could have been a little smoother, was during the first year of my daughters time here - she has had 4 different lead contacts. I know this may change with children moving up groups etc but it would have been nice to have the same one, or at least two to really understand and have that relationship from day one with my daughter. I am not sure if this is normal but worth mentioning.

Like I said, we feel very happy knowing our daughter is in safe hands of the hospital Busy Bees.

Thank you.

My daughter has progressed so well throughout her stay at the nursery. She is very confident and her speech is coming along nicely as she learns new words every day. She gets excited to come to nursery just at the mention of her carer's names and we are always greeted with a smile and positivity. As a first time parent, I have always felt so confident leaving her in the care of Busy Bees and knowing that she's happy and well looked after.

Lovely setting and the staff make every effort to ensure my son settles every day and enjoys himself throughout the day as well as doing activities that are helping him learn and reach the next stage.

The food is cooked on site and is lovely.

Lots of opportunities to be involved in nursery with fun days, grandparents day, carol concerts etc.

I would not hesitate to recommend Busy Bees.

This nursery is amazing :)
They are committed to my son's medical needs as well as his speech and language needs. My son has come such a long way since starting this nursery. I cannot believe the difference in him.
The staff are very supportive and friendly. They show genuine care for the children they look after. They have amazing activities out on a daily basis and encourage my son to try new things. My son hated messy play before starting at Busy Bees and with help and support from the preschool staff he is not afraid to get messy any more.
I cannot say enough how much I recommend this nursery and will continue to use this nursery with future children I will have :)

This Busy Bees nursery has been amazing for my daughter, having started her at a different nursery originally and having issues, Busy Bees were amazing at helping me with all those issues. The staff are really friendly and my two-year-old daughter loves them all, the atmosphere is great and I am 100% happy leaving my daughter here while I am at work. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since being at Busy Bees and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to everyone, the food is amazing and she eats better than I do! Thank you, Busy Bees, for everything you do for her.
