  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 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 4.917 for Busy Bees at Bristol Barrs Court is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.043 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Bristol Barrs Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 23.2 positive Reviews (116 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 23.2 Target = 0.043

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

My daughter has been at this nursery since August 2014 and we continue to be extremely happy with the standard of care she receives. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and very warm and friendly. At every level; from the management to key workers to the staff in the kitchen, the standard of care is very high and the attention to detail is exemplary. It did not surprise me in the slightest when the nursery achieved its outstanding rating. My daughter enjoys the variety of activities on offer, the lovely outside space and most of all, the care she receives from her key workers. The nursery has a homely, family feel where everyone takes an interest in your child and in your family. You know that your child is well looked after and you are contacted immediately if there is any query or concern about anything. In addition to this, the staff organise special dressing up days and activities to celebrate events in the calendar. We do not hesitate to recommend this nursery to others.

Our daughter has attended Busy Bees since approximately aged 18-months-old and is coming up to 4. All of the staff are professional, friendly and welcoming - the kids adore them. The rooms are large and colourful with a wide range of activities for the children to join in with and that promote learning. The outside spaces are well kept and always used so the children get plenty of fresh air. We are kept regularly informed with our daughter's progress through parents evenings and informal conversations with staff. The nursery has been exceptional in promoting potty training, manners and all round good behaviours and respect from the children. The food provided is of a high standard with lots of variety. We particularly enjoy being involved in social occasions such as Christmas activities, summer fayre, Mother's Day etc. The nursery are keen to promote celebrations and recognise different holidays and festivals from all over the world. Cannot recommend the nursery highly enough.
