  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Worthing in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.845 for Busy Bees at Worthing is calculated as follows: ( (72 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.845

  • 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 4.362 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Worthing is based on 5 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.362

  • 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 Worthing

Busy Bees was the only nursery I looked at for my little boy and instantly loved it. My fears and worries were completely gone, I felt comfortable there so knew my little boy would too.
My son loves it and gets so excited as soon as we drive into the car park, (such a nice feeling for a mummy) feeling no guilt as I know he is so happy there.
Fantastic food, amazing staff and so many activities. I love how thorough his review of his day has been. I don't pick him up often but always have a detailed report back from his daddy. Overall a fantastic, nearly first year. Thank you.

When looking for nurseries, Busy Bees was head and shoulders above the rest. Staff are so welcoming and helpful and made my child feel like he is at home. My child has learnt so much and has his own personality. I like that they set homework to do with your child to continue the development at home.

Busy Bees Nursery in Worthing is an excellent children's nursery and I am happy with the service provision and care they provide for our daughter. I would recommend their services and I think the staff are very good, competent and caring. The team are approachable and the nursery has a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. Communication is very good and the service is holistic, looking at all of my daughter's needs, providing us with reassurance whilst we are at work to know she is happy and well cared for, for the 3 mornings we have there.

For nearly 4 years we have been using this nursery, firstly for our son and now for our daughter. In those 4years we have experienced care that has been nothing short of excellent. The food is fresh and made from scratch and I wondered how they managed to get my son to eat foods such as pilchards ... until they had an open day when we were able to test some of the foods and I realised just how tasty they made it! All of the meals are healthy and my children love it. The staff are all wonderful and really care about your child as an individual. They have gone above and beyond and think up such imaginative and fun things to do with the children. They're always friendly and smiling and all seem to know all of the children. There is a garden at the front as well as the back which the children get to use every day and my daughter has been taken for walks in the pushchair. The preschool room really prepared my son for school this year and helped him grow in confidence. Highly recommended.

My son had attended Busy Bees since he was 8 months old. He has grown into a confident, sociable and content child. He has learnt so many skills that will help him with his transition into school next September. We will be sad for him to leave. All the staff are welcoming and enthusiastic, showing him great care and attention.

My girls are very happy at Busy Bees at Worthing, they settled in very quickly thanks to the staff who took the time to get to know their routine, likes and dislikes. The Nursery has great facilities, plenty of space for play and learning activities as well as quiet and relaxing times. There is a wonderful food selection, my girls have gone from being very picky eaters to eating everything and I have the nursery to thank for that. The new addition of artificial grass outside has transformed the garden and is a bright exciting place to play and explore.

I would definitely recommend.
