Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.628 for Busy Bees at Swindon Broome is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.628

  • 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 4.625 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Swindon Broome is based on 9 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.625

  • 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 going to Broome Nursery since June 2017. We looked at a number of nurseries at the time and found Broome to be the best. The setting is lovely. The nursery and nice size and most importantly the staff are fantastic. We have always had a good experience and have a lot of confidence in each staff member who cares/looks after our little girl. We have since recommended the nursery to friends.

My son always receives a kind, warm welcome. The staff take time to ask myself how he's been and to ask him how he's been and what he's been up to. They try to incorporate interests at home to activities they do with him in Foundation class.

He is always happy and speaks lovingly about his key person.

I was really impressed how much care and attention my daughter had when she started nursery and I was never worried about her during the start - the Assitant Room Manager is fab and my daughter loves spending time with her.

Both my girls have developed so well and know how to write their names and can count.
The staff are attentive, friendly and very engaged. They try so hard to make the nursery an active and friendly environment.
The staff are always smiling and are so excited to feedback on my girl's achievements. They are also good at dealing with my daughter's ill health and 'difficult' behaviour days.
They seem to have the right amount of discipline without being too over the top.
I think the Broome nursery is excellent and would definitely recommend it to others.

My daughter has been with Busy Bees at Broome Manor for the last couple of years and the place is like a second home for her.
The teachers are fantastic and each one of them I have come across genuinely care for the children. I have seen relationships blossom between the kids and teachers.
The values they imbibe in children is excellent. The foundation class setting is conducive for the kids learning, encouraging curiosity and inquisitiveness. I work peacefully, knowing fully well that my daughter is in caring, capable hands and for that, I am forever grateful.
Thank you!

We joined this nursery in March 2017, I have two children aged 7 & 2, until now they have been with a childminder so we were very nervous about how they would adjust to a busier environment.
I have to say all the staff at Busy Bees at Swindon Broome are simply wonderful. The care and attention they have provided to both my children and the consideration they have shown to us as parents is highly commendable. Thank you!

My Daughter has been with the Swindon Broome since she was 6 months, and I am absolutely delighted with the staff the food and the venue. She is extremely happy and comfortable when there and I am always informed of events and any incidents.
