Reviews

7.8 Busy Bees in Woking has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.830)

The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Woking 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Woking in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 out of 5 from 1 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 4.792 for Busy Bees in Woking is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.792

  • 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 3.038 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Woking is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 26 positive Reviews (130 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 26 Target = 0.038

  • 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 in Woking

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has attended BB since she was 13 months old and is now 4 years old. In that time she has really enjoyed going to Busy Bees. The teaching and learning are excellent. Management is brilliant. The staff are caring and honest and very friendly and approachable. I couldn't hope for a better nursery and I really did my research. Busy Bees is inclusive of special needs and of different cultures of which they embrace wholeheartedly. Any issues are dealt with in a timely manner. My daughter and I will be devastated when she leaves for school in September. It will be a huge adjustment. The staff are amazing.

I could not ask more from a nursery. My eldest left here in September 2016 after being at the nursery for 3 years. My youngest continues to be at the nursery. The staff in all of the rooms are warm and welcoming and they make time to talk to you at the beginning and end of the day. Staff encourage the children to learn and develop their skills through a variety of means. There are themed weeks which my children have loved taking part in.

The staff and managers are thoroughly committed to the development of children and tackling any concerns/issues that may arise. They sometimes hold fun days at the weekend which the children always ask to go to. There is a great 'indoor' garden which the children can use whatever the weather.

I always have happy children at nursery pick up time - what more could I ask for?

Nice, friendly and helpful staff.
We recently received a Home Learning Book to be filled in which is a good idea.
The nursery organised a fun trip to a local fireworks event which we attended.
The nursery has a large indoor play area which is a great facility to have.

My little girl started at Busy Bees in Woking at 9 months and enjoyed her time there until the end of pre-school! She's now in reception year at school and thriving in a school environment; I think being at Busy Bees prepared her to be an independent confident little girl; my boy, now 2, also attends the nursery and I couldn't be happier with his care under the amazing team across Busy Bees Woking. This nursery has brilliant spaces for kids to play, learn and have a lovely day overall. But I'd say the best feature of the nursery is it's caring, very professional staff. Always looking after kids and parents with so much love. Highly recommend it!

My daughter has been coming to Busy Bees since she was 9 months old. She has a great bond with all of the staff that work there and her father and I feel that she has blossomed in every area of her development. We look forward to watching her grow and develop during the rest of her time here.

My daughter started nursery in the baby room and is now in the toddlers room. My daughter really enjoys coming to nursery and learns lots of new things. She has great relationships with staff and I feel they all know my daughter very well. The bond she has with key people is great. I feel my daughter is happy at nursery. Thank you to all the team and all the great work they do.
