The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Gillingham Brompton 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Gillingham Brompton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 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 4.928 for Busy Bees at Gillingham Brompton is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.928

  • 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 4.375 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Gillingham Brompton is based on 6 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). 6 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.375

  • 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 been at this nursery for the last 6 months since I returned to work. The staff have made the difficult process as seamless as possible and my daughter is thriving. I find all the staff to be caring and interested in my child as an individual and I feel comfortable leaving her in their care. I have recommended Busy Bees nursery to local friends and am extremely grateful for their ongoing excellent treatment of my daughter.

My daughter has been attending since she was 8/9 months old, her key worker within the baby suite was amazing! The newly refurbished suite was the perfect setting, freshly cooked meals with all my daughter's allergy needs catered for daily. My daughter is now in the "blue" room and is thriving in there as well. The staff have encouraged her at all stages.

At her last parents evening, she is well well above her development level. I do a lot at home with my daughter to help her learn and with the staff at Busy Bee's approach and new rooms, she is loving learning at each step. Would recommend to anyone.

Busy Bees Brompton is an outstanding nursery! The staff are very attentive forwards the child and focus on each and every child including my needs. My daughter is three and a half years old and went through some behavioural problems. The support received from her key person and manager was fantastic. My daughter received a lot of attention to overcome to her issues and now is a pleasure to be around. Thanks to the staff and the support of the manager my daughter is a delight to be around. Highly recommend them!

We currently have both of our boys in the nursery and both from a very young age full time so we wanted to find the best nursery for them to settle into, feel comfortable in and one that would give them the best start to life. We found it with Busy Bees Brompton. Our boys love going to nursery and have developed in leaps and bounds. The staff are second to none and Joe the chef is a real asset to the team. Cannot fault the nursery in any way and their communication is excellent. We could not be happier with our nursery choice. Highly recommend.

Our son is diabetic and needs extra attention for help with his medical needs. This nursery has provided us with the care and has supported us as a family with the needs and the medical needs our son requires. They are a brilliant nursery and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nursery for their child.
