Reviews

8.8 Busy Bees in Stoke Gifford has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.793)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Stoke Gifford is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Stoke Gifford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.595 for Busy Bees in Stoke Gifford is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.595

  • 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 4.198 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Stoke Gifford 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 25.2 positive Reviews (126 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 25.2 Target = 0.198

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

Our daughter has attended Busy Bees in Stoke Gifford since she was nine months old and she has just started in the pre-school room. At every stage, she has been well cared for and understood. The nursery has a real family feel, she knows all the staff, even those in other rooms, which helps with room transitions and any unexpected staff changes e.g. If people have to change rooms to cover others.

As a parent, I find staff friendly, helpful and reassuring. Events are well planned and fun so all the family can feel part of something. I would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

Choosing a nursery is hard, but we could not be happier with Busy Bees Stoke Gifford. Our little girl had only been in my care before attending Busy Bees and I was concerned about how she would settle in but the staff were amazing to both her and myself. We have moved rooms twice as she had aged and cannot fault the communication from all her key workers, explaining what will happen when and how her progress will be monitored etc.

I also like the fact there is minimal staff turnover which means the employees are happy and also enjoy their time at here. The food menus make me want to stay for lunch and tea! I love the outdoor space and how much they utilise this as does my outdoorsy girl.

Everyone is friendly and professional and go above and beyond. Events like summer and Christmas fairs, photo days, parties, book day and charity days happen regularly with a real sense of passion from all the staff.

Lastly, a recent outstanding Ofsted achieved. I would highly recommend you take a look.

Both of my daughters have attended this nursery and thoroughly enjoyed everything it has to offer. I was delighted that the nursery was recently awarded an 'outstanding' Ofsted rating! My 2-year-old is delighted with the recent arrival of two nursery pets, which she loves to help look after. I would definitely recommend this nursery as m girls have both been so happy here.

Really pleased with the nursery. Especially the 2-5 room (preschool). My son enjoys going in. I was sceptical of moving him as he started at another nursery but following a house move the move was required and the nursery made him feel very welcome and ensured he was happy. When something has not been to my satisfaction I have brought it to their attention and it's been handled. Very pleased!

My daughter really enjoys her time in the pre school room. There are lots of activities to keep her entertained. She gets to use computers, paint and use their purpose built outside area with bikes and trikes, slides and gardening area. She has made some friends and really enjoys her time here. It is also really helping to pave the way for her starting school.

My daughter has been very happy coming to the pre-school of Busy Bees. All of the staff are very welcoming and including of my daughter. They answered all my questions of concerns I have about my child's settling in and development. I feel that my daughter is in a safe environment and they have exciting and imaginative activities set up and I have a full run down of her day and what she did and ate. I would recommend this nursery and feel happy that they are preparing her for school.

Busy Bees Stoke Gifford has been a massive part of our families lives, they have provided first class care to both of my children, they have helped shape them into the children they are today - confident young boys with a thirst to learn! I cannot speak highly enough of them. The Nursery has a lovely family feel and all staff have made us feel welcome from the start. My children made use of the Stay and play Sessions every Friday before they joined which helped them settle with ease. All of these sessions were also free of charge as well as being provided with complimentary previsits before joining, allowing them to build bonds with their key person all before their very first day.
