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 4.712 for Busy Bees in Bishops Stortford is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (43 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.712

  • 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 4.563 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Bishops Stortford is based on 9 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). 9 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.563

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

Every member of staff has always shown a huge sense of care towards my son.
I am always told positive things about him and feel genuinely they enjoy looking after him - he is not merely 'another child'.
Staff are happy and motivated and I never worry about him when I drop him off.
He runs to the door without looking back.

My little one's confidence has grown from strength to strength over the three months he's been at the nursery. The nursery workers have been so great in settling him in, from the anxious little person he was, having never been left before - it's so nice and comforting knowing he loves being there. He always has a big smile on his face when we arrive and when we collect him. They are also very good with his allergies and we have never had a problem with staff not knowing about them. We are very pleased with the nursery and staff.

Very happy with all the services that this nursery is offering. My daughter started this nursery with no knowledge about English language and now she is great. Her key worker and all the staff helped her a lot in everything and made her attending nursery with joy and happiness, she wasn't afraid anymore that no one would understand her, can truly say that my daughter became a happy and confident child. Thank you all for this!

My daughter has been at the nursery for 3 months as we transferred from another setting. She has settled in really well and has made a good bond with her key person, it makes dropping off much easier! The garden space is amazing, we are happy with this as my daughter loves being outside.

My child is very happy at this nursery. When we first started the staff were very reassuring and great in settling my child. The nursery has big gardens and every room has their own, which is nice for the children to run around in.

The staff in Sunflowers were very welcoming when my son started and really helped him settle into nursery life. He really enjoyed coming into nursery and doing all the actives and loved being able to get out in the garden.

Our daughter has attended Busy Bees since April 2015. I have always found the staff professional and attentive to our child and she comes home having learnt new things every week. I am happy with the security of the nursery and most activities they chose for the children. The food choices have sometimes been hit and miss, but it is obviously hard to cater for everyone's tastes, especially a child's.

My daughter has attended the nursery for over a year for three days a week. The standard of care given has been without fault. The staff are excellent and my daughter's development has been very good. There is a friendly atmosphere with a wide range of activities offered during the day. A superb variety of food is prepared daily for the children on the premises. .

Busy Bees in Bishop Stortford has been fantastic for my little girl. She started just over a year ago and has settled amazingly, all room changes have been managed so well that she has barely noticed. Absolutely loves going for her 3 days a week.

The staff are amazing with the children, lots of effort made, get them outside as often as possible. My daughter's development has been great, her language and motor skills have really come on since she has been there and a lot of the credit should go to the staff who have helped in this.

The managers/admin team are amazingly helpful, always happy to have a chat answer queries and help with issues - take a lot of the stress away by being so flexible, approachable and friendly.

The food provided is brilliant - lots of variety and different tastes for the children to experience.
