Reviews

9 Busy Bees at Ipswich Pinewood has a Review Score of 9 (8.994)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Ipswich Pinewood 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Ipswich Pinewood in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 4.694 for Busy Bees at Ipswich Pinewood is calculated as follows: ( (51 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.694

  • 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 4.3 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Ipswich Pinewood 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.300

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

Lovely, caring and flexible nursery. All staff are welcoming and make the place have a great feel to it.
The ethos is what attracted us and the day to day living of it keeps us there. Love the variety of activities offered. Our daughter is always happy and content when we pick her up. Only criticism is I wished her nose was wiped more. Great support when potty training.

Fantastic nursery. My daughter is just being prepared to go to an age room and is doing so with ease. Staff have been caring and nurturing. I've seen my daughter come on leaps and bounds.

Our son has attended this nursery since he was 12 months old, he loves every minute of being there. When we pull up in the mornings he claps his hands and starts shouting excitedly "Bees Bees". The Nursery is clean, modern, well equipped, has a good layout and is spacious. We especially like the garden area, as different age groups have their own outdoor space. The activities in each of the rooms give the children variety, enjoyment plus the ability to learn through play. We are always fully aware of our child's development through daily communication and regular parents evenings. The Nursery has a lovely seasonal food menu providing home-made meals each day. The Staff are fantastic: friendly, dedicated, capable and responsive. Our son has built strong bonds with his key persons, who have really nurtured his learning and his personal development. We have found Busy Bees to be professionally run and the staff strive for continuous improvement. We have no hesitation in recommending Busy Bees.

My child has attended the nursery for a year now and I can honestly say my child loves going and I never have any doubts leaving her. She can't wait to see her key person each day and never wants to come home!
The staff are fantastic and all are so friendly and welcoming. The manager is also very accommodating to all our needs as a family.

My son attends Busy Bees Nursery, Pinewood branch and I would like to pass on my thanks to members of staff. When my son started at the nursery he was a very fussy eater, both there and at home, not only did the aforementioned staff liaise directly with the kitchen to produce more bespoke meals to entice my son into eating better, I have witnessed them spending extra time and attention on him during mealtimes. They have done this in a careful manner to nurture his eating whilst ensuring mealtimes remain fun and not a chore. Staff were also very professional and liaised with my wife very closely on their progress and how they were conducting themselves, they advised on best practice for continuing improvements whilst away from the nursery. My wife has found this to be a critical factor in helping her at home and cannot tell me enough how much it has made her appreciate the staff and their team spirit with parents. Warmest regards.

A lovely Nursery, my children love the nursery and cannot wait to go. All the key workers are friendly and helpful and my children built up a bond with each one of them.

My child takes part in a number of fun and exciting activities, as well as educational activities which have helped my child progress.
