The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Chippenham (Bath Road) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Chippenham (Bath Road) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 3 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 Chippenham (Bath Road) is calculated as follows: ( (121 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 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 3.638 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Chippenham (Bath Road) is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 21.8 positive Reviews (109 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 21.8 Target = 0.138

  • 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 at Chippenham (Bath Road)

  • Mother of Child

We have been using Busy Bees since September 2017. My daughter appears to love the nursery and is excited to be going, which makes me happy.

It's a welcoming, approachable nursery with the children's needs at the centre. My daughter has made friends already. I like the structure of the nursery. However, for a large nursery chain, I'm surprised they do not have an e-log I can access about my daughter's day, as I'm not always able to drop off or collect, and rely on my parents for information about her day.

Busy Bees at Chippenham is a nursery with amazing staff and wonderful facilities for babies and toddlers. Their dedication in allowing my child to grow and develop his own personality is very good. They update me daily on his development progress which I find to be a positive attribute for the nursery. I also like that meals are prepared on site and my little one enjoys a variety of foods on a daily basis. I would highly recommend Busy Bees to any parent or guardian with babies or toddlers.

My daughter has attended this nursery since she was seven months old and is now nearly 4. I can not speak more highly of all the staff at the nursery from the baby room to now being in pre-school. Each and every one of her key members of staff has been outstanding. She loves going here and comes out each day full of stories about her day and teaching me the songs she has learnt.

Two of my three children now attend Busy Bees - with my third due to start in the new year. My eldest has been at Busy Bees since 2013 and has absolutely flourished. In every room, staff have developed an excellent rapport with her. She clearly feels secure at nursery and is anxious to go as often as she can! My second child also enjoys her time at nursery greatly. I was very apprehensive as she started attending at only 8 months but was well reassured by staff who allowed her to see her older sister during the day to provide familiarity and who always give detailed feedback and reports.

The atmosphere is incredibly friendly and staff are engaging, enthusiastic and caring. You never feel rushed and any queries about your child are given full attention and properly addressed. The building is purpose built and contains excellent facilities both inside and out. Meals are well balanced and contain a wide variety of flavours and food. Overall, I would highly recommend Busy Bees.

I cannot talk more highly of Busy Bees, Chippenham. My daughter has been there since she was 9 months old (she is now one month shy of 3). She loves it and has learnt so much. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. The toys/activities are plentiful. The security measures are extremely good. I would highly recommend this nursery.

My little man started at Busy Bees at Chippenham in April 16. Both of us are really happy with all its staff and care. The nursery is very spacious and provides very tasty menus for babies. Would recommend it to every parent.

My little boy started Busy Bees, September 2016 and is having the time of his life.
He gets so excited when he sees all the staff and gives everyone huge cuddles, which as a parent is so reassuring, knowing I'm leaving him somewhere he enjoys.
He's learning so much and the work the staff put in with him is second to none.
After only a short amount of time he had such a good relationship with his key worker and the reports I get back are so detailed. He loves the food, such a great menu I couldn't be happier leaving him there.

Busy Bees Bath Road made a great impression on us straight away.

Wendy and all the staff are professional and attentive. We like the structure, the order and the Soil Association accredited food.

From our experience, the nursery combines the friendliness of a small nursery with everything you could hope for in terms of structure, experiences, room to play and the attention and care the little ones get in the toddler room is fantastic. The outdoors offer too must be one of the best in the area and the rooms are more than comfortable.

We originally opted for a small, independent nursery in the area because Busybees Bath Road was a bit out of the way for us. In hindsight, we should have trusted our instinct and not think about the location. Busy Bees Bath Road is providing everything we could ask for our little one and are professional, attentive and with great facilities.

My children have been going to Busy Bees for nearly a year now and I cannot recommend them highly enough! My daughter has high functioning autism and is doing really well and a huge part of that is the support received from the staff there. My son is in the toddler room and they have helped with toilet training and he loves it there! Again can't speak highly enough of them!

This nursery is outstanding. I was so anxious about returning to work and sending my not yet one-year-old to nursery but the support they gave me was great. We were made to feel like part of a little family and the manager always has an open door which makes such a difference. My little girl is looked after to a level I'd not even anticipated and sure enough any worries I had were quickly put to bed! She is so happy and loves going to nursery. Her development is brilliant since she started.
I'd recommend this nursery to anyone!!
