The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Telford 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Telford in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 6 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 4.824 for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Telford is calculated as follows: ( (192 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 227 Ratings = 4.824

  • 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 4.234 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Telford is based on 6 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 25.6 positive Reviews (128 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 25.6 Target = 0.234

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

The staff at Honeybuns are amazing. My child has attended Honeybuns since he was 9 months old. He has been cared for and looked after to the highest standard that I could have asked for. He was always happy when collecting and happy to be dropped off, with staff interacting with my child at all times.
Management are excellent and were very supportive when needing advice.

We have used honeybuns for many years. With 2 of our children starting as babies. The staff are amazing and they really do love what they do. The management are fantastic they are always communicating with us. Our children have had the very best start in life with honeybuns help. Our boy was able to write he's own name at just 3.

They have a great structure and many brilliant activities. They take part in all celebrations for the children to enjoy e.g. queens birthday, Easter and many more. I would 100% recommend Honeybuns to family and friends. Thank you Honeybuns, you are truly the best nursery out there.

My little one has been with Honeybuns since he was 6 months. He loves going to nursery and is well cared for. Any problems have been quickly dealt with and any help needed the team have been quick to respond.

Trusting someone with your child all day, every day is hard and you need to know that they will do everything they can to nurture them in the same way you would. Honeybuns was the only nursery we viewed that gave us an instant feeling that our son would be cared for and thrive in.
Unlike all the other nurseries we looked at which seemed to be just "going through the motions" we got the instant impression that Honeybuns would always go that little bit further for both children and parents.

It was the only place where the staff instantly interacted with my son whilst we looked around (at other nurseries we were just ignored as we went into each room) and it was the only one our son smiled at and seemed comfortable in and around the staff instantly and that counted for a lot. Leaving your child whilst you go to work is hard, you need someone who will make that process as easy and stress-free as possible - Honeybuns will do that :-)

Our daughter only attended this nursery from May-September 2017 after our relocation to the area pre-starting school. My husband and I can honestly say hand on heart that this is the best place we could have put her in to help with her readiness to school.

All the staff were lovely and so helpful and knowledgeable. The office staff and managers were a delight and always made us feel like we were leaving our daughter in the safest hands.

She did a mixture of wonderful activities including outdoor play and working in small groups to help improve her awareness of different subjects. She always had lots to say about her exciting full days at the nursery and most days it was difficult to get her to come home. It felt like a family, not a nursery.

We are sad that our daughter has left and is now at school but are so pleased that Honeybuns became part of that journey and have contributed to her development. Thank you to all.

My child attended the nursery from the age of 1 until the end of August 2017 when he left to start school in September.
He was very unsettled at first but after about 6 weeks did settle in nicely.
He had a good time on the 2 days a week which he attended and formed friendships with lost of boys and girls. Some of the children are attending the same school which is why he has settled into school so well.

Both of my children currently attend this nursery and I genuinely cannot praise them enough. My two started at Honeybuns last April when we moved into the area and I can honestly say that moving them to this nursery was the best thing we did. They both love attending nursery and go in in the morning with big smiles, which makes going to work so much easier! Their key workers are great and my eldest constantly talks about his. He wanted to invite her to his birthday party too.
Both children have come on leaps and bounds since starting here and that is due to the hard work and dedication of the staff.

After speaking on the phone to the nursery manager I arranged to visit the nursery with my son. I was a little apprehensive at leaving my son at nursery as he has Cerebral Palsey and didn't know how he would react to being around people he didn't know and being in a strange environment. The nursery staff are all so friendly and supportive towards my son and his condition. The nursery manager has taken the relevant action in ensuring that all my sons needs are being met while he is at nursery and this makes me extremely happy. My sons development has improved so much since he has been coming to this nursery and I couldn't thank his key worker enough for all her help. I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone who is considering sending their child/children to nursery.

Both of my children have attended Honeybuns and we continue to be very happy with the service we have received. Since Nov 2009 our children have been cared for by professionals who genuinely want them to be happy and thrive in the nursery environment. Our second child is currently in the pre-school class and is becoming more and more confident in himself and among others his own age. Honeybuns have supported us through all the usual childhood milestones and niggles with ease and professionalism. One of the main reasons why we chose the nursery was through word of mouth and after visiting for a short time we both felt completely comfortable leaving our baby son so that I could return to work. We have had total faith that our children are safe, happy, learning and enjoying the social aspect of time with their peers. Thank you Honeybuns for the last 6.5 years of care and support.

My son has been attending Honeybuns since he was 10 months old, since being there he has come along way and is a very outgoing, bright little boy. We find the staff very friendly and helpful and are always there for any advice needed. I would definitely rate this nursery as one of the top nursery's in Telford. Thank you Honeybuns for making it a lot easier for me to go back to work and feel confident that my little boy is being taken care of and looked after, as if he were at home with me; you really can't put a price on that.

Great nursery. Both kids have attended. No issues at all. When we had a problem with child number 2 everyone was fantastic in trying to help and support us. Couldn't have asked for more. The staff genuinely care and they still ask how child number 1 is getting on at school!

I would highly recommend Honeybuns, all the staff are amazing, supportive, friendly and fantastic at their jobs! Archie has attended Honeybuns since he was 8 months old, I have never had a complaint or concern to make regarding his care and he is 3 in March. He has grown into a clever, kind, caring enthusiastic child and that is partly thanks to the fabulous care and education he has received at Honeybuns. Staff have always excellent in dealing with any problems or concerns and I cannot fault any one of them. They are truly supportive and easily approachable. I hope they win this award as it is sincerely deserved for such gold standard care and excellence.

What can I say, my daughter has come leaps and bounds since joining the nursery. When I drop her off she has open arms for the nursery staff and is full of smiles when I pick her up. It is nice being able to go back to work and having the confidence that my daughter is being well cared for as well as learning and having plenty of fun.

I think the food they provide is excellent, it leaves me with great peace of mind to know my daughter is eating well at nursery as she is at home. All healthy and full of nutrients that my growing daughter needs.

I highly recommend Honeybuns Nursery.

Since starting the nursery in September 2015 my son has come on leaps and bounds. The staff were keen to settle him in and made him feel welcome. The amount of activities they do with him is good and so is the variety. Communication is excellent and the newsletter is good with future dates etc. Thanks!

The range of activities that she has done already have been brilliant! She always goes with a smile on her face and is always excited to tell me what she has been doing.
