Reviews

9.3 Busy Bees at Weymouth has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.327)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Weymouth 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 Weymouth in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.75 for Busy Bees at Weymouth is calculated as follows: ( (54 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.577 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Weymouth 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.577

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

As an anxious, first time mum, finding the right childcare for my 11month old son was always going to be a tricky thing.
However, from the moment we walked trough the door at Busy Bees, we felt content and at ease. All member of staff we met were friendly, smiley and polite and made us feel welcome and cared about, especially as I was a 'little' emotional.
The settling in sessions were brilliant before our proper start.
When my little boy started it was a tricky transition for us both but the staff were amazing! Such care and support to both of us.
My little boy is happy and loves attending and that's down to the team there.
I highly recommend this nursery and cannot thank them enough for helping both us to settle there.

The nursery was purpose built, so naturally has all the facilities a nursery could want, including lovely play areas outside.
The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. My son is always happy to go.

My son started this nursery a couple of months ago and they have done all they can to make him feel welcome.
He is delayed with his speech and they have gone above and beyond to help him with improving this.
They keep parents updated on all areas of the child's day and do all they can to listen to any concerns you may have.
Although there are several children in the group with him they ensure he has all the attention he needs and they do the best they can to make him feel special and valued.

From day one all staff at the nursery have been so amazing. Our little boy started in the baby room at 8.5 months old and is now 2.5 years in the toddler room. He loves going and always has a smile on his face when I collect him. I have so much peace of mind he's getting healthy meals, lots of water, lots of outside play and so much positive development! All the staff are happy to go with whatever routine we have at home and help with difficult things like convincing a toddler to brush his teeth! Amazing nursery and staff and worth every penny!

My daughter always tells us about all the great activities she has been doing in pre-school and we have watched her grow and develop, learning new things every week. She has been with the nursery since she was a year and has always received great care.
