a) The Average Rating is 3.8 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Chineham Basingstoke in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 3.833 for Busy Bees at Chineham Basingstoke is calculated as follows: ( (2 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 3.833
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:
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.
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.
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 1.526 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Chineham Basingstoke is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 19.6 positive Reviews (98 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 19.6 Target = 0.051 , then divided by 2 = 0.026

Review submitted from a Postal Card by Katherine T (Mother of Child) on Tuesday 6 December 2016. Relates to November 2016.
The Management are incredible and have such a personal touch on the children making them and you feel very welcome/valued.
Resources have seen better days and a lick of paint would do the world of good.
The staff are great and a lot of love and nurture is felt in the 0-2's unit.
Food is a little hit and miss but overall, a fabulous nursery.
