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 4.806 for Busy Bees in Telford Priorslee is calculated as follows: ( (88 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.806

  • 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 4.37 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Telford Priorslee is based on 8 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.370

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

My daughter has been attending Busy Bees since September 2017.
Her development and confidence has grown and grown in the time that she has been going. She thoroughly enjoys her days at nursery and always seems happy to be there.
The staff are friendly, supportive and approachable. My daughter has formed good relationships with her key workers and all members of staff that have looked after her.
The management team have been helpful, flexible and supportive in achieving the requirements that we need in respect of childcare hours.
Like any parent, I was dubious and nervous about sending her to nursery but I’m thrilled with how far she has come along and knowing she is happy at Busy Bees, makes all the difference!
I highly recommend the nursery.

My eldest son has been attending this nursery since Aug '14. From day one he loved nursery and the changes in his development were outstanding. My youngest son now also attends Busy Bees. He was much more hesitant when first starting and hated being left. He quickly learnt how amazing nursery is thanks to the care and devotion of the staff. I can’t praise them enough for the way they have brought out the very best in both of my children and how passionate they are about the care they provide. They regularly post observational photos to a parent portal, along with creating paintings/cards for them to bring home with footprints, handprints, photos etc. The nursery is a clean and safe environment with brilliant facilities indoor and out, where I am confident that my children are receiving the best care. The meals provided for the children are nutritious and varied, and allergies are catered for with the highest level of care. Highly recommend this nursery and all of their amazing staff.

Both of my children have attended Busy Bees and I have always been pleased with the standard of care. If anything it has improved since my youngest started nursery. We love the ParentZone app, the updates are great and we get to see so many more photos and can leave comments. I feel that the staff working with my daughter genuinely care about her, she has become so much more confident since starting nursery. She loves the food and is so much more likely to try new foods with her friends around her than at home.

My daughter has attended this nursery since 2017.
As with every parent we were a bit worried with leaving her at first but after our visit (which was completely unplanned and spur of the moment) we were made to feel welcome by a member of staff (who set a great precedent for the nurseries attitude to parents who don’t book appointments!) we were shown around and immediately knew it was the place we wanted my daughter to attend.
She has taken a shine to all of her key workers that have been involved in her development whilst being there, two of them especially.
She has met loads of friends there as well which is really nice.
The systems in place work brilliantly such as parentzone where we get regular updates, observations and assessments (helps be part of their day to day)
Security is high level, I know this after being stopped and asked who I am because they didn’t recognise me.
Couldn’t recommend this nursery more.

My daughter started this nursery in 2017, I was apprehensive about sending her as most parents are but I was welcomed and reassured by all nursery staff. I particularly liked the secure settings of the nursery and the welcoming feel. Since starting nursery my daughter has really come on and out of herself, she has formed lovely relationships with all nursery staff as have I. Communication between staff and parents/carers is brilliant we are always kept up to date on what our children are doing. I wouldn’t hesitate at recommending or using this nursery again in the future. It’s a great place with lots of friendly faces.

Our Son is always happy to go to Busy Bees and has developed so much since attending there, which is a true sign of the hard work and dedication the team give.
He loves the extra activities provided of Football, PJ Drama and Nature Tots!

My Daughter has attended this nursery since August 2015. Now 2yrs old, she has come on leaps and bounds and has a lovely relationship with all nursery staff. I am kept well updated and communication is brilliant. Nursery settings are safe and well maintained. Meals are specially catered for if needs be, although my daughter will eat anything and has a very healthy appetite. I can't thank the staff here enough for everything they do for my little Girl. An amazing place and I wouldn't place her anywhere else.
