  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Trowbridge, Paxcroft Mead in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 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 4.763 for Busy Bees at Trowbridge, Paxcroft Mead is calculated as follows: ( (299 Excellents x 5) + (79 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 384 Ratings = 4.763

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Trowbridge, Paxcroft Mead is based on 24 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). 24 Reviews ÷ 20 Target Reached = 1

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

Simply a superb nursery. My daughter loves it there and her confidence and ability to adapt to people has grown and grown thanks to their support. The staff are caring and helpful, and they look after their charges with genuine affection.

The nursery is very friendly and all of the staff are approachable whether it's to do with my child's daily activities or the office staff if I have any queries.
I feel happy and content every day I drop him off, because to me if he is happy and enjoying his day then I feel less guilty at being at work.
The fact that I can see what he is up to each day via the online system is great. I would recommend the nursery to any of my friends or family who are looking for childcare.

My son goes to the nursery for one day a week and has come on leaps and bounds since he started. Every member of staff that we have come across always seems to care for him and is always willing to comfort him if it's needed, they are always very positive.
When I look at his time there on the parent app, he is always having so much fun, but also the staff are on top of his individual milestones to help him reach them. We are hoping he will go to pre school at the nursery, which would be a perfect start for him before primary school.
I have recommended the nursery to my friend and now her son goes too! I can't say a bad word about them really!

My son has been going to Busy Bees since he was 1yr old. He has been in every room at the nursery and is now in pre-school as he will be heading to 'big school' in September.
He has had exceptional care at every stage of his Busy Bees journey and is now a confident and happy school ready little boy.
The management and staff are all fantastic without exception, making me comfortable and happy that he's in their care.

Busy Bees at Trowbridge, Paxcroft Mead is an excellent facility. The practitioners are great and always on hand to offer assistance and guidance on any childcare related issue. My son's development since joining the facility in September aged 9 months has been second to none. He is a real people person and absolutely thrives on a challenge. He loves music and building and anything that he has to "work out". We all say he's like a sponge as you only have to show him (or him see) something once and it sticks. His key person has been amazing and always has his best interests at heart so thank you! The nursery manager is great too, procedures are always followed and she is always on hand to answer any questions. Very approachable. Would definitely recommend this nursery.

I have used Busy Bees since my 6-year-old was 2 years old and in the 4 years service, my youngest now 4 and due to start School in September, both of my children have grown in confidence, in learning and in spirit. The staff are incredibly friendly and listen to any concerns or questions you have, and you know that when you drop your baby with them they are in excellent hands. Both of my daughters loved / love attending this pre-school and have made many close friends here.

Other than the lovely feel for the place, you can also guarantee the expected safety, excellent nutrition and application of excellent all round care.

My little boy only goes to nursery once a week so you would expect him to be a little unsettled to go in in the morning. Oh no he loves it he can't wait to get there and that's down to how good the nursery is. All the staff are great and make such an effort with my little man and the environment he gets to enjoy is fab especially the outside space which they've done so well with. I have no concerns at all about the nursery and feel very comfortable leaving my little man to play.

My child absolutely loves going to nursery. She has never once cried when we have dropped her off even on her first day. She loves all the staff she comes into contact with.
The staff have assessed the right times for her to move onto the next stage room and have not just gone on when she is 'supposed to'.
My daughter has additional needs and the nursery is extremely accommodating for her needs and have continued with teaching of sign language that her specialist nursery (and me and her dad) are teaching her.

Our kids love Busy Bees! They love the staff, their friends and all of the different activities they get up to. The progression throughout the 3 years our son has attended Busy Bees, has been amazing. He really does love being in the nursery/group environment and it has really brought on his maths and English skills.

My Granddaughter has settled into nursery so well with the support from the team. Both my daughter and I feel we made the right choice after visiting a few other nurseries in the area. We are kept informed with what she has been doing during her time at nursery, although we can log on to parent zone and all the information is there.
She has had the opportunity to explore lots of different things and she now loves tactile media and using her senses to investigate things. The staff a very friendly and the management team make you feel welcome and are very helpful and supportive.
My Granddaughter has already built a bond with her key-person and separates from her mum with no fuss. She also loves the food and always eats well.
The parent log in is great I look forward to seeing all the lovely activities she has taken part in.
The nursery is outstanding and would highly recommend it.

I have been using this nursery since 2014 and both of my children love it. The staff are friendly and always willing to accommodate ours and our children's needs. In the last 3 year's there has been a change in management and this transition has taken place smoothly with no effect on the children. I believe that both of my children are well looked after and are stimulated and encouraged at all times. My eldest is in pre-school and every day he surprises me with new things he has learnt, whether this has been maths, English, science, make believe, new songs or a new game, he has made up with his friends.

I have recommended this nursery (our nursery) to 3 friends, all of whom have enrolled their children.

A truly fantastic facility.

My daughter has a physical disability and has attended this nursery for the past 2 years. Staff have worked really well with her to adapt either an activity or the environment, to make sure they are meeting her needs and including her along with her peers. My daughter has developed some relationships with other children but has particularly developed good relationships with the staff, which allowed my daughter to have that trust which has enabled her to thrive.
As a parent, I feel included in her learning and I feel that I can discuss any issue with all staff surrounding my daughter. I would pass on my positive experience to my friends and family.

Our little girl has attended Busy Bees since last November and I can not recommend them highly enough. The manager and staff could not do any more to make it such a fun and educational experience. Every member of staff knows each child individually and we have no doubts about the care that she receives. The Parents Zone App is just great and allows us to see what she had been doing that day.

So happy I have put my son into this nursery. He has progressed so much and becoming so much more confident with other people and his speech.

He always comes home really happy. When I pick him up, I always get told what he has been up to what he's slept, eaten and what nappies he's had.

Could really ask for more from the nursery.

My little girl loves this nursery. She has a big smile on her face every time we drop her off. She needed a bit of time to settle in but the staff always made sure that she is happy and looked after. The food is freshly made, which was one of the reasons we choose this nursery. The toddler room has loads to offer, there is a big outside area as well, so they can run outside if the weather is good.

My two children have been attending Busy Bees since they were less than a year old. One is now in preschool and the other in 'big babies'.
I cannot express how much I think that the nursery has positively impacted on their development. Not only do they continuously learn and develop new skills, but they love going to nursery.
The staff are fantastic and care for my children as if they were there own. They are always available to speak to at drop off and collection and make sure that I'm kept informed about what has been happening during the day, or making sure I know if they've had a bump!

Both my children have attended Busy Bees at Trowbridge, Paxcroft Mead. They have both extremely enjoyed their time there. They were both only 6 months old when they started so needless to say I was nervous, but the ladies in the baby room instantly put me at ease. They were very professional, attentive, caring, friendly and was very clear they had a lot of experience. Once they were old enough they moved up to the toddler room which again they loved, the ladies in here were equally amazing. Both children have flourished from their nursery experience here and I would highly recommend Busy Bees.

The care my daughter receives at Busy Bees is second to none. She comes home learning new things every day and grows in confidence all the time. The staff that work there are brilliant with her. Very rarely do we have tears on drop off, instead, she's eager to get stuck in with whatever exciting things they have planned for the day! We are always welcomed with a friendly smile. My fiance and I feel so at ease when she's at nursery and cannot recommend them enough!

A very well presented nursery, the team of workers are really polite and truly understand what your child needs. The rooms are well thought out using all the criteria a child needs to develop in their early years. This practice is well run with an excellent manager and staff who excel to go beyond what is needed, I have/would recommend to all.
My child is 2 years old and at the end of the day when he comes home you see the difference a day can make with his speech and mannerisms. The Busy Bees team are developing him well from his strong liking to creative playing and much much more.

When we moved to Trowbridge we looked at a number of nurseries but none had the same facilities or enthusiasm for child's care as Busy Bees. The preschool environment has three rooms and a lovely outdoor space with play equipment. We were concerned she wouldn't settle in a new environment but the staff made me and my daughter feel reassured and she very quickly made new friends and relationships with the staff. She would come home from nursery with so many stories about the things she had done at school. I feel confident when leaving my daughter that she is well looked after and the staff go above and beyond to make sure my daughter and the other children get individual activities suited to their abilities as well as group activities. The nursery is an excellent foundation to prepare children for school and I feel my daughter's abilities have improved since starting at Busy Bees.

Busy Bees is an excellent nursery. The food is mostly excellent (I wouldn't brave soup with a toddler!) and the days are filled with fun and educational activities.

My child loves the place and the staff. I think the best indication is when I pick her up she quite often wants to stay!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Busybees Trowbridge! It saved us when I was starting to lose faith in other local nurseries! The members of staff are warm and welcoming the moment you walk through the door. I know they genuinely care about my little boy and go 'above and beyond' every day to make sure all the children in their care feel happy, safe and nurtured. I had such concerns when going back to work and leaving my son in childcare all day but the wonderful staff at Busybees supported him (and me!) beautifully. He started nursery as a fussy eater with limited vocabulary, which made me nervous, but thanks to his year in the toddler room, he now has a voracious appetite for new foods and a wealth of new vocabulary. He has flourished in their care and continues to do so now in the preschool room, who are also amazingly supportive and have helped us battle new challenges like potty training! I've discovered not all nurseries are the same and this one is a gem!

The nursery is purpose built and has a great garden with lots of resources for the children. There is a separate area for each of the age groups, meaning each space is tailored to suit. Staff are friendly and from his time at the nursery, our son has built strong connections with his key workers and has really grown in confidence. Would recommend.

The nursery was really helpful when settling in my children. One of the children was really unsettled and wasn't looking forward to having to be away from myself but the professional staff soon put both our minds at rest. They were really accommodating with their needs and helped both children settle in even offering extra settling in sessions so that they were less anxious about starting nursery.
When the time came for me to leave the children the staff were very helpful in taking their minds off it all and giving me regular updates throughout the day, this really puts my mind at rest and made sure the children had a fab day and wanted to return to the nursery the next day.
The pictures that were handed to me on arrival of picking my children up were very good to see that my children were safe and having a lovely time so thank you so much.

My daughter aged 3 currently attends Busy Bees in Trowbridge. She used to be a very shy child with a lot of separation anxiety. When she started at Busy Bees, I was very nervous as I was curious to how she would settle. At first, she really struggled coming into the setting as she didn't want to be left. All the staff were excellent at reassuring me and comforting her. In time she settled and began to really enjoy nursery, even asking to come in on the days she wasn't booked in! From then on, she has become so confident and has really progressed in her development! She has made lots of new friends and has built up strong relationships with her carers. My daughter always comes home from nursery happy, well fed and full of stories to tell me about what she has done at nursery, already asking when she is going again! I would highly recommend this nursery!

I would highly recommend Busy Bees nursery in Trowbridge. They not only offer an outstanding service for my daughter but they also ensure I, as a parent, am well informed and involved with my daughter's learning and development within the nursery. The staff there are fantastic, very friendly and approachable and can't do enough for both me and my daughter. They made going back to work following maternity leave a very smooth and enjoyable experience. They always go above and beyond to ensure both our needs are met. As a parent, you hope that your child is as loved and cared for at nursery as they are at home and I can honestly say this is 100% the case with Busy Bees. My daughter gets excited when she sees the ladies that look after her and waves bye to me without a second glance! I feel so welcomed on arrival by anyone we see throughout the nursery, I honestly can't sing their praises enough. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT BUSY BEES!
