Reviews

8 Busy Bees in Emersons Green has a Review Score of 8 (8.012)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Emersons Green 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 in Emersons Green in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.667 for Busy Bees in Emersons Green is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.667

  • 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 3.345 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Emersons Green is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 21 Target = 0.095

  • 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 Emersons Green

  • Mother of Child

When my husband and I first walked into Busy Bees in Emersons Green, we were impressed by the modern facilities. Everything looked fresh, modern and organised. It felt like a mini school! The atmosphere seems very cosy and welcoming. Friendly staff on reception, always have a smile on their face and remember the children's names (even though there are so many that come in and out of their doors on a weekly basis!)

My eldest started in the first steps room and now is almost in the pre-school room. She loves it - they do fun creative activities and get them outdoors a lot. The staff really seem to have a genuine interest in my daughter and have gotten to know her personality.

I have just started my youngest in the baby room and they also have been so lovely in helping her settle in. A really lovely place for your children to go to. I know they are in the best care at the nursery.

Online reviews and Ofsted reports paint a partial picture when selecting a nursery but the reality remains a daunting experience of implicitly signing up to a family of “co-parents” you don't know well. The character of the nursery and particularly the staff are going to leave an indelible mark on a child and their values.

Busy Bees Emersons Green has created a tangible culture of professionalism, kindness and commitment to each and every child who attends. Whether the “always open” manager’s door, the outstanding senior staff and room managers or the dedication to out of hours activities and events – these qualities are always in evidence. Our daughter has progressed through from babies to pre-school, and at each step of the way has been influenced by a diversity of strong and positive role models.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Busy Bees Emersons Green.

My littl0y has been coming to Busy Bees in Emersons for the past three years. There has never been a time in those years where I have doubted the care he receives. The staff are lovely and he has always spoken highly of his key workers. The food is delicious (he certainly eats things there that I'm sure he wouldn't eat at home!!) they also have fab outdoor space which allows him to get lots of fresh air. If I had another child I would definitely send them to Busy Bees.
