Reviews

8.7 Busy Bees at Eastbourne has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.658)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Eastbourne is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Eastbourne in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.708 for Busy Bees at Eastbourne is calculated as follows: ( (35 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 3.95 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Eastbourne is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.200

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

Really bright and friendly place, staff are excellent and always on hand to discuss the babies day and give feedback. Great to have a parking area to drop off and pick up safely. Loads of different activities and safe outdoor area for the children.

Little girl has been going here for 2 years and can not fault them at all. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, the management team within the rooms are second to none and the admin office and manager can deal with my questions with ease. Never had a problem with miss billing and I feel the pricing is fair and reflects on the high standard of nursery and food. But most important of all is that my little girl is happy and content from when she arrives to when she's goes home. Keep up the amazing work.

My baby boy has just settled into this nursery. He has started in the baby room and he loves it. He had settling-in sessions before his start date and I think they really supported him as well as myself. I feel that my boy is well looked after and he comes home so tired. My older daughter is in preschool and has been at this nursery since she was nine months and has been looked after so well that I didn't hesitate at putting my baby boy in the same place. The manager is welcoming and everyone has a smile on their face, children included. The staff are happy to answer questions and support my children and me as a parent.
