Reviews

9.3 Busy Bees at University Hospital has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.260)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at University Hospital is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at University Hospital in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 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 4.833 for Busy Bees at University Hospital is calculated as follows: ( (121 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.427 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at University Hospital is based on 10 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 23.4 positive Reviews (117 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 23.4 Target = 0.427

  • 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 University Hospital

My son has been at this nursery since he was 6 months old; he is 19 months now and absolutely loves it. The staff are welcoming and friendly to children and parents alike and have formed really great bonds with him. He always has a great day and is well looked after here. His transitions from baby 1 through to baby 3 have been excellent and we've been kept informed of his progress the whole way through via his baby journal and verbal handover. My son loves it here and so do we!! We would highly recommend ??

I searched and viewed every local nursery in the area, nowhere compares to busy bees at Walsgrave.
My son has been going here full time since he was 8 months old.
He's my 1st to go into nursery so it had to be the right one & the best!
The environment is great, the facilities are great & the staff are amazing.
Every time we pull in towards the nursery he gets really excited, which is great for me to see as I know he loves going there.
The staff give feedback on what he's been doing, what he's eaten, pretty much everything when I go to collect him, which is great as I don't feel like I'm missing out.
He loves when I relay names of the other children (his friends) back to him.
It's also nice to be able to stand outside the room once I've dropped him off/just before I go to collect him and watch what he's doing(obviously from inside the building)
I'm really happy with the level of security to enter the nursery, knowing that my son is in safe hands makes it easier for me to drive away&go to work.

My daughter has various allergies and from day 1 the staff at Busy Bees University Hospital have been outstanding in their practice around meal times, medication information kept up to date and all staff members being aware of the allergies

My daughter has been going to be Busy Bees for 14 months and I couldn't be happier with the staff! She has developed such a good bond with her key workers and made so many friends.

My daughter currently attends Busy Bees and absolutely loves it. She has been at the nursery for a year now and my other daughter was previously at the nursery for three years. I have always been impressed by the quality of care provided and by the amazing staff. It is so reassuring leaving your child with people who genuinely care and also in the knowledge that my child is going to have a super fun day playing and learning!

Both of my daughters have attended Busy Bees at Walsgrave. The staff are all amazing and I found the office staff extremely supportive. My daughters were always so happy and well looked after whilst at nursery and they learned so much! The nursery is always so nicely set up and there's always such a variety of wonderful activities for the children to enjoy. I always recommend this nursery to family and friends as I honestly can't thank them enough for all their hard work.

As a parent, I feel very confident with the care my little girl receives while at nursery. The staff are always happy, pleasant and polite, my daughter is always happy when at nursery. I am very happy with the progress and how much my daughter has come on since she has started with Busy Bees. The girls in baby 1 and 2 do a brilliant job and know my daughter very well, they always give brilliant feedback at the end of the day.

Our son started nursery at 6 months old and attended 3 days a week. He is now two and a half and has recently increased his attendance to full time.
His dad and I have watched him grow and develop into a wonderful little boy, who enjoys nursery very much.
The staff are excellent. They are all very caring, kind and patient.

Both my twin girls attend this nursery. They have been going there for nearly 2 years. The staff and the management team have been so supporting and helpful with the girls. Each morning we are always welcomed with a smile and the girls are welcomed by the staff so nicely. They have been a great support in the development of the girls and we have noticed so much change in the time they have been going to the nursery.
We would like to thank the Busy Bees staff at Walsgrave for all the continued support and we cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for our twin girls.

A very excellent nursery. The teachers are professional, caring, kind, friendly extra mile taken. You are sure of incredible service and peace of mind when your child is in the nursery.
The managers and office staff are also very friendly easy to relate and approach. I would 1000% not 100% recommend Walsgrave Busy Bees to everyone.
A super nursery.
