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 4.813 for Busy Bees in Bromsgrove is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 4.407 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Bromsgrove is based on 7 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.407

  • 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 in Bromsgrove

  • Mother of Child
    8

Both of my boys have attended the nursery and I am extremely happy with the level of care and education they have received. Their individual needs have been taken into account and they have been cared for/educated with a number of different styles and resources. As a parent, I couldn't be happier and I am very grateful for everything they have done for us. All meals are prepared on site and there is a wide variety of foods and tastes provided, they often try foods we would have never thought of and they enjoy everything. The management team is approachable and I never have any problem discussing my child's progress or any concerns I may have with them, it is a very open and friendly environment. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to a friend.

Busy Bees has provided a fun and engaging environment for both our daughters. The staff are always friendly and professional showing a genuine care for all the children. We have been particularly impressed with the varied menu and how adventurous the girls have been in trying new foods. (More than they are at home!)

We have been at Busy Bees for over 3 years. Our daughter attended from age 2 through to starting school and our son from six months to now (almost 3 and about to move up to pre-school from toddlers). The nursery has been fantastically supportive of them both. Our girl began school and immediately went into the top set thanks to all the guidance in spelling and maths from her pre-school teachers. Our boy is developing into a talkative, sociable child, always eager to learn. Highly recommend this nursery to all looking for a great environment for their children. Staff are supportive, caring, always willing to make time to give feedback and assist with development strategies during difficult phases. Management are organised and communicate clearly.

Both of my children have attended the nursery over the past five years. They were very happy and safe in the care of Busy Bees. The nursery and the team have developed independence, confidence and high self-esteem, enabling the transition into school very smooth.
