The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 7 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 4.779 for Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.779

  • 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 4.313 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Stevenage, Great Ashby is based on 7 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). 7 Reviews ÷ 22.4 Target = 0.313

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

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.

My son attends 4 full days a week and absolutely loves this nursery! All the staff are very welcoming and he settled very quickly. 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.

My daughter used to go to nursery 3 half days a week until I started working again and then went full time. In all honesty, she has flourished in the last month and gained so much self-confidence. She has added many more words to her vocabulary and doesn't cry anymore when I drop her off at the nursery. She now looks forward to going and doesn't want to leave. Thank you to all the staff that my daughter knows.

My son is happy and settled at nursery, he only attends one day a week but runs in to see his key person in the morning. I truly feel the staff in the room know my son and all of his little ways. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to a friend.
