Reviews

8.3 Busy Bees at Portsmouth has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.258)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Portsmouth 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 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Portsmouth in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 3 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 4.639 for Busy Bees at Portsmouth is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.639

  • 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 3.619 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Portsmouth is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 25.2 positive Reviews (126 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 25.2 Target = 0.119

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

My twins have been here full time since they were 5 months old. Two of the early year's educators have always been very professional and provided excellent care really getting to know my girls, their needs and routine.

They are always carrying out different activities and the garden facilities are brilliant for the kids.

Helpful staff with every aspect when looking after my son. Especially since he has been ill since he started nursery on 1 March. The support/help has been much appreciated. Since he has been ill it has been difficult for my son to get settled at the nursery and the staff have really helped with, he is so much better now!

All the staff are very friendly at Busy Bees Nursery and they make you feel very welcome every day. The food is homemade by the chef every day and I pay for my son to be there full time but a lot of the time I collect him just after 2pm and they prepare his tea ready for me to take home which is a great help. My son has only been going to the nursery since March but in that time he has settled in really well. He has progressed a lot in the last 2 months and I feel the nursery staff and being in that environment has helped with his progress.
