Reviews

9.1 Busy Bodies Childrens Centre has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.077)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bodies Childrens Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bodies Childrens Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 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 5 for Busy Bodies Childrens Centre is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • 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 4.077 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bodies Childrens Centre 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 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target = 0.577

  • 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 Bodies Childrens Centre

  • Mother of Child
    3

My daughter has attended Busy Bodies for about 18 months and I can not say anything but positive things about the nursery.

The staff are friendly and extremely professional. Since starting at the nursery my daughter has progressed a lot with her eating, speech and confidences. She has built strong relationships with the staff and children at Busy Bodies and enjoys her time there. My daughter will often tell me that her favourite thing about nursery is learning new things.

The nursery is welcoming and staff are very helpful with the government funding. As a single mum, doing a full-time degree, I have found the nursery very flexible and supportive.

I would recommend this setting to anyone who is looking for a caring, stimulating nursery for their child. I'm extremely happy that my niece will also be attending Busy Bodies in the near future.

All of the staff are so friendly and it has a relaxed atmosphere. Which makes it a lot easier for children to settle in. Couldn't have asked for better. They do lots of activities and lots of toys for children. My little boy absolutely loves going. Definitely recommended.

Our son has progressed so much since he started at Busy Bodies. His confidence has soared and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. It really helped in the early days to settle our boy and us. Our son loves the days he attends so much so that he asks to go even on days we aren't booked in for. Our journey is sadly nearing an end as our son starts school in September. We can't praise Busy Bodies enough for all the fabulous work and kindness they have shown. Highly recommended to all parents wanting a safe, fun, exciting, good value, competent nursery for their child/children to attend. Thank you all for everything x
