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 4.865 for Busy Bees at Telford Parkway is calculated as follows: ( (85 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.865

  • 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 4.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Telford Parkway 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.778

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My son attends this nursery and he absolutely loves it there. He has developed so much since attending nursery. The meals he receives are fab and such a variety that he will eat everything and anything now.
The staff are amazing and very friendly. They always have time to chat and it’s nice having an update on what my son has been up to during the day. The only negative comments I have are that bank holidays have to be paid for, that you don’t get any free weeks from nursery for such things as holidays and I think there should be more of a deal when sending more than one child there.

Our children have been at Busy Bees nursery now for a few months. We were very nervous about changing nurseries but all of the staff and management have been fantastic with settling in our children.
The key workers have made a great effort in getting to know our children and we feel they have made a lovely bond with them.
Each day you have a full report as to what your children have been up to, what they have eaten, nappy changes, nap times and what activities.
The Nursery is light and bright and always immaculate. There lots of clean toys to play with and they try to get the children outside as much as possible (weather permitting).
They have their own cook on site and serve a variety of different foods.
We feel our children’s care is top priority, and with all the staff here you get a genuine feeling that they really care about the well-being of your children.
Our children are very happy here and we would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to other families.

My child has really benefited from attending this nursery since she was 16 months old. Her social skills and development, in general, has progressed very well and I think that nursery has helped this.
She recently moved up into another room and the staff have been very attentive to her needs which has encouraged her to settle in, making the transition a lot easier.

I now have my third child using Busy Bees Telford Parkway, and I wouldn’t want them anywhere else. All three have enjoyed their time there as well as developed in leaps and bounds. I have one child with SEN and the team have been very accommodating of his needs and his ability level- making sure he is offered the opportunity for inclusion should he wish to take it. They variety and quality of food is always excellent. Most importantly for any parent, however, I feel safe with my children being in the care of the staff team; not only because I feel they’re a capable and well trained team, but that they’re all kind, polite, happy people, who genuinely seem to care for my children. The bonds they have built are touching, especially with my SEN child and his keyworker.

I moved my child to this nursery after careful consideration and visiting a lot of nurseries in the area after being very let down.
I am certainly not disappointed and very pleased with my choice. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Always doing new activities with the children. I can go to work and know my child is in safe hands.
Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for childcare.

We found Busy Bees Parkway in September 2016 after needing childcare for our then 4-month-old daughter. We were worried about her being so young, but after meeting everyone and seeing how it works all our worries went away.
The staff are amazing and very helpful. At the end of the day, they tell you EVERYTHING that has happened. From the number of nappy changes to the amount your child has eaten that day. You can also call up anytime to check if your child is ok if you're worried, but the nursery will always call you if anything has happened.
Being at nursery has developed our daughter into an extremely social and confident child. Her relationship with the staff, especially her key worker is amazing too. We always know she's safe and happy with people she knows and likes.
The whole nursery has a very family like atmosphere, and everyone knows each other. She absolutely adores going there and we've never had any issues or worries.
We can't recommend this nursery enough.

My little boy currently attends the Bumblebees room at Busy Bees, Telford Park Way Nursery and has done since June 2016. The management team and staff are very welcoming and friendly to me on arriving and leaving the nursery.
The nursery is very inviting and child orientated. I enjoy looking at the children's photos and artwork around the nursery and in the rooms.
When I come to collect my son, the staff are very warming and it shows that they have a general love for all the children.
My son enjoys coming to nursery and has made nice relationships with the staff in his room.
His needs are met and is coming on leaps and bounds.

I have and will in the future recommend this nursery to friends, as from a parents point of view my son is very happy and I am very happy with the care provided.
