  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.775 for Busy Bees in Huntingdon is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.775

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.05 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Huntingdon is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.050

  • 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 Huntingdon

  • Mother of Child

My daughter attended this outstanding nursery for 4 years before starting school and my son has been here for over a year. I have been so impressed with the nursery and my daughter flourished in the time she attended. She has started school confident, happy and academically beyond where would be expected from her age. The staff create an atmosphere where each child is valued and their own interests are recognised and used to support them in their development. My daughter's pre-school key worker amazed me with her creativity, care and support for my child - we still have to visit her! The nursery is a fun, exciting place for children and they have so many opportunities to develop each child as a whole. My son is safe, happy, developing and wants to be at Busy Bees - what more can you ask for!

A wonderful nursery! My son has been coming here since he was 6 months old and he is now 2 years old. I have no worries leaving my child here as I know he is well looked after. I have just enrolled my 5 month old son to the same nursery and they have been nothing but excellent!

Busy Bees has been a wonderful experience for my child. The staff there are not only patient and attentive but they give off the feel of a big family. The environment there is one that seems to stimulate creativity and exploration, lots to look at, touch and play with. They hold fun events for the children and families about once a month and go over the top to make sure parents are in the loop. To top it off the meals they have for the children are great. Wonderful School! Thank you!

Both my boys have had a great time at Busy Bees. The staff are friendly and look after the children well. Plenty of cuddles if needed! Both boys have progressed well and always look forward to going and seeing their friends.

Busy Bees (formerly just learning) has been a brilliant place for my son to learn and gain life and social skills over the past 2 years. The facilities are brilliant and the staff and owner regularly have events on (such as the Christmas Fete, Sports Day, a trip to Wickstead Park etc.) which build stronger relationships with the parents and the staff. They are hard-working, encourage good discipline with the children but are also friendly and welcoming. I look forward to bringing my daughter to this nursery soon.

Busy Bees in Huntingdon is a really good nursery. My son has been going there for 3 days a week since he was 6 months old and he's development is amazing. He loves being at nursery and has now started in the Pre School class. All the staff are very professional and attentive and if I have any concerns or questions there is always someone to help and listen. There is lots of variety for the children - painting, cooking, outside games, the gardens are lovely and the way the classes are laid out is great as it prepares them for a school environment. Over all I think this nursery is the best in the area and I'm very pleased I chose to send my son here.
