Reviews

9.9 Busy Bees in Edgbaston has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.918)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Edgbaston 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 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Edgbaston in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 34 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 4.918 for Busy Bees in Edgbaston is calculated as follows: ( (440 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 478 Ratings = 4.918

  • 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 in Edgbaston is based on 34 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 22.4 positive Reviews (112 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 34 Reviews ÷ 22.4 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.

Every morning is filled with joyous anticipation at Busy Bees in Edgbaston. Staff are positive, informative, caring and show a natural ability to engage, focus and motivate my 2 boys in various activities from inside play to meal times and those unexpected potty and nappy times. Great empathy in moments of uncertainty and detailed feedback at the end of each session. I am confident to say from my 2 and a half years of being here that my children have been at the centre of decision-making processes. Thank you.

The staff at the nursery are amazing, they are so friendly, accommodating, kind and caring. They treat you with priority and understand your own individual needs as a parent. Everyone gets to know your child and make a point of getting to know their name and understanding them as a person and their needs. The nursery environment is full of equipment and resources and is very inviting. The manager is exceptional and goes above and beyond her duties.

My daughter attended this nursery between the age of 6 months and 4 years. She was immediately really at home and loved going in each morning. The varied activities really suited her and the staff/her key worker got to know her really well - adopting their approach as we went through various phases (potty training, 'that' temper tantrum phase!). The manager and her team are clearly well experienced in dealing with both the children's experience and indeed with parents - I always felt well informed and believe I had honest and open feedback from them in respect of my daughter - even being invited to join the parent/staff group to share feedback and development ideas. My daughter also adored the garden area, and it was lovely to see them out there enjoying themselves in a stimulating and safe environment. Sports Days and Graduations were also handled beautifully. Well done to all.

My son attended this nursery from the age of 5.5 months through to reception.
All of the rooms/facilities were fantastic for him as he progressed. We were especially impressed with the day to day supervision and closeness of his key-workers, with whom he had a fantastic rapport. We were really pleased with the preparation for school too - a vital time in their little lives and we felt like he was properly looked after and cared for as if he was one of the staff's own children.
I've always felt incredibly safe leaving him in the care of the staff here - and would highly recommend it.

My son was very happy at this nursery for 4 years. I felt happy to leave him with such lovely people. The whole place was friendly and professional. All of his needs were met to a great standard and I wouldn't hesitate to send him for holiday club. If you're looking for a place your child will be happy, well educated and taken excellent care of then this is where you should choose. We couldn't have asked for more from the nursery.

My daughter loves her days at nursery! She has developed so much since she started. The staff are always friendly and helpful and they are so easy to talk to. We are so happy with the care my daughter is receiving that we would like to keep her at the same nursery when she is old enough to move to the 'big girls room!'.

I have been taking my one-year-old boy to settle in sessions at Busy Bees in Edgbaston throughout January and February as I am due back to work next week. I have never left my son and I was worried how we were both going to cope with this change. All the staff at the nursery including the manager and reception have been so lovely, helpful and supportive. I have voiced my concern and they have helped me through them. They advised when to leave him for a couple of hours to see how he copes without me there. When I returned to pick him up the staff had taken photo's showing what he had been up to and to reassure me he was happy. I got to keep the photos. This means so much to me. When he was upset on one settling in session they tried different activities until he was content. The staff have shown such understanding towards me as a parent, dedicated time getting to know my son's personality making it easier returning to work. Thank you so much Busy Bees a wonderful nursery.

Ever since the first day we came to ask about the nursery, we were looked after very well, our kids were taken into the classes and they settled very well. I was especially happy with how they dealt with my special needs child. We requested full days after having half days for one month and we were given our request kindly. The girls love it and the staff do a great job looking after all the kids and giving them a fun learning environment.

I have had three children attend this Nursery the first one being in 2006 to the present day. I have always found the staff very friendly and extremely good with the children. Especially as one of my children has special needs. Impressed with how they support charity days throughout the year, Children in need, Jeans for genes day etc...
I have attended the days out that they organise a couple of times per year and visited places I would never have known about or got to enjoy. Not just a childcare provider an essential part of the local community.

We were extremely impressed with the care received by this nursery. The activities on offer were brilliant and the staff offered a warm and friendly atmosphere whilst still being professional. As parents, we couldn't have wished for a better environment for our son to develop and grow into the loving, kind and intelligent little boy he is. He left nursery after 4 and a half years equipped with all of the skills and knowledge needed to start school confidently and happy. Anyone looking for quality childcare should seriously consider this nursery!

My son attended Busy Bee's nursery in Edgbaston from the age of 12 months to school.
I must say I was really happy with how my son has become such a lovely little boy and I feel Busy Bees had such a positive affect on him.
The nursery always kept me up to date with how his day was. Anything he did or if they had any problems. The food was always great and lots of options. Staff both in the rooms and the office are so friendly and approachable. If I ever had any problems they were soon sorted promptly and very professionally. When he was at the age to come out of nappies the nursery supported this straight away and asked to put him in pull ups. They care about their children and I would recommend anyone looking for a nursery to go for this one as its hard to trust anyone with your little one. But Busy Bees made my experience a good one. Now my son is in reception and doing amazing...

Our son has been coming to Busy Bees since he was 9 months old, we are so grateful to all the staff for helping with his development and preparing him for school. All the staff have been so welcoming in each of his rooms and he enjoys coming to nursery everyday - he doesn't want to leave some days! :)
Big thank you to you all, keep up the good work!

Make son has really developed; emotionally and mentally. His speech is fantastic and the girls that work with my son always keep me updated with any changes within the nursery and any new learnings and developments my son completes and picks up during his day.

My daughter loves the nursery and I would recommend to all parents.

Lovely, helpful staff and great location.

There is a good focus on learning with play which is suitable for our needs and for the development of my daughter in preparation for school.

My Grandson attended this nursery for 4 years and the experience was outstanding. From the day he started nursery at the age of six months, the care received has been exceptional. The activities offered by the company are fantastic to extend children's learning, the 'Cook With Me' and 'Science Area' were popular with our grandson. He loved being outside, so the garden area was fantastic for him, he really enjoyed exploring the mud kitchen where he made numerous mud pies and worm soups! When we ask him what he liked most about Busy Bees he says 'the real road in the garden for my cars and trucks'!! I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for quality childcare. The staff are very caring and kind and made the transition from home to nursery very smooth.
