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 4.811 for Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby is calculated as follows: ( (341 Excellents x 5) + (75 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 418 Ratings = 4.811

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby is based on 31 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 22.4 positive Reviews (112 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 31 Reviews ÷ 22.4 Target Reached = 1

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

Since my child has joined in 2016 I have watched her grow and mature. Now that she has moved to Pre-school at Busy Bees I can literally say that she learns something new every day. She is more confident and also realises when she does something that she shouldn't do. In all honesty, I am so glad that we placed her in Busy Bees. The staff is brilliant with the kids and they take the time to listen to the parents when they have something to say. Great work guys!

We absolutely loved this Nursery. It was our first Nursery experience and our daughter loved it from day one. All the staff are brilliant and very caring towards the children and their parents, going above and beyond what was expected of them. I could go to work with my mind at ease that my child was receiving the very best care and attention. She learnt so much throughout her time here and progressed both mentally and physically.

My son hasn’t been at this nursery for long due to recently moving to the area but he has come on so much. People always comment about how he’s so independent now. He always comes out at the end of the day with a smile on his face. Couldn’t recommend this nursery enough.

My child has been going here since he was a year old and he loves it. He's made loads of friends from different backgrounds and plays educational games and is encouraged to be active and creative. He is fed a varied healthy menu, and the staff are approachable and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

My little boy absolutely loves going to Busy Bees every morning. There is a variety of activity and outdoor play is encouraged which I like. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to understand and talk to the children about their favourite things such as dinosaurs in my son's case. There is a good variety of healthy food and the children are encouraged to try new things and I am always jealous of what my son has eaten that day! He is always singing new songs he has learnt at nursery at home and loves reading and writing and playing games which I know he does with his friends.

My daughter has been attending the Busy Bees in Great Ashby since she was 7 months old. It’s the best choice I have ever made. Seeing my little girl grow and develop so much in such little time. She always enjoys herself at the nursery, at first I was worrying as didn’t know how she would cope but she loves it. She has a great energetic day, for the two full days that she attends, she smiles and waves when I drop her off, and giggles and smiles when I pick her up. All the staff are amazing, feedback is lovely and always positive. To see my daughter interacting with other children so well, as well as the staff. I am a very proud mum and thank you full for everything staff have done so far. Very pleased.

My daughter transferred to Busy Bee's in February from another nursery in the area. Upon having a nursery tour I was extremely pleased with the staff, layout, food menu and overall vibe of the nursery.
However, when it came to my child settling in I was always worried that she may struggle with the change of scenery, I was completely wrong!
From her first visit up until now I have never seen as much as a tear when I have to drop her off in the morning. The staff are all so welcoming and attentive you can just tell that she is excited to get in the room and play!
A massive THANK YOU to her keyworkers (you know who you are).

My daughter is 1 and started at Busy Bee's Great Ashby in January 2018. She has progressed so much in 2 months and I could not be happier with the quality of care she gets every day.
Her key workers and other workers in her room are brilliant, but what I love the most is that all other members of staff (management/staff from other rooms) know my daughter by name and she is always happy to see them all.
Excellent location, value for money and everyone is so friendly. I was also quite upset leaving my daughter for the first time, and all the staff I saw were so supportive and assured me she would be fine. If I have any other children they will definitely be going to Busy Bees and I would highly recommend this nursery to any parent.
I get daily updates in my daughter's personal journal so I know what she has eaten, when she has slept, what her nappies were like and they tell me what activities she has done during the day. It is very reassuring and I have 110% confidence in the team.

The team at Busy Bees are fantastic, my little boy absolutely loves it. His key worker is great and really engages with him. On the 2 days he goes into nursery I know he is in safe hands and will have a fun day, which makes going to work a lot easier. I would 100% recommend this nursery to anyone looking for A* childcare.

It's always a welcoming and happy environment and I feel at ease leaving my child in the care of the nursery. One particular staff member is very personable and friendly and always has time to speak to us whether it's just a Hello or to offer advice or assistance even if she is not working in the room my child is in that day.

I would like to say how impressed I am with the staff at the Nursery. They are extremely professional and supportive. My daughter is full of smiles when I drop her off for her session. Her attendance at the Nursery has assisted not only with her development but also with the interaction of other children and adults which has improved her confidence. She has come on leaps and bounds. A special thank you to her allocated key worker, who I know makes my daughters experience fun and enjoyable. Thank you.

Extremely friendly and Children feel the home atmosphere. Experienced staff. My child loves going to Busy Bees. Looking at his health and development I know that he is being looked after very well. As a parent nothing can be more assuring than this - Looking at the happy and smiley face at the end of the day suggesting that he had a lovely day. I love the feedbacks I get at the end of every day where I come to know what my child has been doing all day, what he ate, etc. Will highly recommend to friends.

I have nothing but good things to say about this nursery. My nephew has been there for around 3 years now and every time I collect him he is beaming from ear to ear! Even at 6pm when the staff probably want to finish they are still giving the children their full attention and have activities for the children set out and they are still all playing. I get the full lowdown on the journey home from him, telling me everything he has done (sounds exhausting but he loves it!)
The management team who greet me on arrival are always friendly and polite and treat me as if I was a parent and not just a frequent collector of my nephew. They often know what he has done during the day and that's before I discuss the day with the staff in the room. I am not usually one to write reviews, but my experience alone from this nursery has been and still is so great I will not hesitate to place any children I may in the future in their fantastic care. Thank you Busy Bee's Great Ashby team!

When I first visited The nursery, I was very impressed. The entrance to the nursery is very open and inviting. It's very spacious!

The setting is friendly and welcoming, which really helped to settle my twins.
All the staff are lovely and friendly, even if they aren't in the same room as my twins. Everyone makes a huge effort to great parents and children in the mornings which is a lovely touch.
The managers are very knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. And if you have any concerns, they are very approachable and understanding.
My twins have really settled well at Busy Bees Great Ashby, beyond expectation. They have learnt so much and are so happy there.

They started in June last year, so have been in the younger room and their current room, and they have loved being in both. All their key workers have been fab alongside all the other staff in the rooms.

I can highly recommend Busy Bees Great Ashby and will continue to do so without hesitation.

My son is currently at the nursery and has been for the past four months, he loves attending and gets excited when we are close and when he see the staff. I was worried about him starting due to a medical condition and dietary requirements but the management, staff and the chefs have all been very understanding and good to deal with it all, the food is always of a high standard and he's always given near identical food so he doesn't feel left out. Since starting the staff have helped him thrive in his development and supported him all the way, with daily activities and fun things to do.

I didn't have much choice when I was looking for somewhere to do the hours I needed to fit around work but I needn't have looked anywhere else anyway. Now both my children are at Busy Bees and they love it. Both started in the youngest class and my daughter is now amongst the oldest. Everyone there is friendly, professional and caring; I just can't rate them highly enough.

My daughter has been at this nursery for 10 months now on a full-time basis.....and she is absolutely thriving. The staff are consistent, kind, professional and very motivated- and I have total trust that they always act in the best interests of the children. I was very anxious about leaving her to go back to work, but the constant feedback and interaction I have had with the staff helped enormously. She just loves it here!!!

My son started in February 2018 and I have absolutely loved sending him to Busy Bees. The staff are fantastic and so excited to see him when he comes in of a morning. I have seen his confidence grow and reach developmental milestones so much quicker than I expected. As a first-time mum, I have no worries about how my child is whilst I'm at work as I know he is having an amazing time.
The rooms are set out in different areas to help each child's development and there is so much for them to engage with. The food menus are brilliant and I know my child is being fed a healthy balance of food. Overall, I am so happy for my son to be here at Busy Bees Great Ashby and I would recommend it to anyone.

My son has been at Busy Bees since he was 9 months old and is soon to graduate preschool before starting reception in September. I cannot thank the team enough for their support and patience with my son. He has grown in confidence, social skills and communication since being there and I especially want to thank everyone in the preschool as they are the ones who have attributed most to his growth. My youngest son has now started at Great Ashby and I would never consider sending him anywhere else.

My daughter attends this nursery now (as previously my older son did too) and she has progressed so much in her time there since joining as a baby. Her confidence has grown and she has made many close friends. Her carers know my daughter well and can adapt what they are doing to fully engage her in activities. Every day my daughter runs into nursery excited to see what she will be doing today. This nursery is fully recommended.

We can’t thank the team enough for taking such good care of our daughter. Since attending Busy Bees she’s become more independent, happier and has picked up so many new words. Our daughter is very settled and happy and would highly recommend! The staff are very personable and know your name and take time to talk to you about your child’s daily routine. One big thing I noticed is that my daughter's clothes and bears are always in the bag ready to go home instead of having to search for them.

Thank you, Busy Bees!!

My son has been attending Busy Bees at Great Ashby since he was a year old and is now in preschool. I couldn’t be happier with the team and the care provided for him. He thrives there and is excited to go in every morning. We are always kept fully up to date on his progress and the facilities and food are brilliant too. Each step he has taken into a new room has been handled wonderfully making the transition easy and each key worker has been exceptional. Thank you Busy Bees!

My child has been attending the Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby since 6 months old so she has been 'promoted' to older groups on a regular basis. The transition period was always a stressful event for our family because it always meant new staff, new routine etc. However, staff in every single group have been great and they made sure that the process is smooth and less stressful. They were fantastic at supporting our child in that difficult time, always made sure she had her favourite toys available to her so she gets comforted by them. The communication is very good and we feel informed and involved in the nursery's life but also in our child's progress. They always have lots of various activities for kids but they have given some 1-2-1 attention to our little one who sometimes doesn't want to join in the group activity. Overall, over the years we have grown in confidence that our child is safe, well fed with healthy and diverse food and she is always happy when we come back to pick her up. Thank you!

My son recently moved into Ladybirds and the transitional procedure was excellent. He spent afternoons and then some full days in the room before formally moving up. This gave him an opportunity to become familiar with the new room and adults and as a result, moved into the room with ease.

My daughter has attended Busy Bees since she was 11 months old (she is now approaching two). She enjoys a good range of activities during her time there including both indoor and outdoor play and I feel learns a lot, particularly in terms of her speech and language. The staff and management are very friendly and attentive. They provide a good variety of meals and snacks. My daughter seems to really enjoy her time there.

He does a number of activities each day and eats a wide variety of healthy meals. His key worker is great and knows him very well. This is the second nursery he has attended and so pleased we moved him here. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.
