The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Maidstone Toad Hall is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Maidstone Toad Hall in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 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 4.861 for Busy Bees at Maidstone Toad Hall is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.861

  • 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 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Maidstone Toad Hall 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.500

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

Reviewer Connection to Busy Bees at Maidstone Toad Hall

My husband and I have only recently moved back to the UK. A huge adjustment for our two little lovelies.
My husband and I were very anxious to make sure we chose the right nursery for them. We viewed several places.
As soon as we walked into Toad hall we knew we'd found the perfect place for our children. It's warm and cosy with great facilities.
The staff are all really lovely and we have total confidence in them.
It's made our transition so much easier knowing that our children are in such a loving and nurturing environment.

I have two children at this nursery. Toadhall was recommended to me by a friend who's 2 children went there. I have not been disappointed my children both settled really well and now look forward to going. The staff are very competent and provide a fun and most importantly for me a safe environment for my children. Staff seem to really care about the happiness of the children and both of my children's confidants has improved since going to Toadhall. I would definitely recommend Toadhall a lovely nursery.

My twin children have attended Maidstone Toad Hall nursery since October 2014, and as a family, we have all been really happy with the service the nursery provides. Our children have blossomed since going there - they have both learned so much and have established great friendships. The staff are wonderful and very professional, informative and caring in all situations. We would all recommend Toad Hall to any prospective parents!
