The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at St Matthews is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at St Matthews in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.933 for Busy Bees at St Matthews is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.933

  • 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 3.333 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at St Matthews is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 24 positive Reviews (120 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 24 Target = 0.083

  • 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 loves coming to nursery and enjoys all the activities that are available to him. If there are any problems with my son they will always ring to inform me rather than being told on collection. They are a really helpful nursery.

My youngest daughter has recently started attending Busy Bees and I can not fault her settling in period, she is so happy to arrive at nursery in the mornings, the staff have been fantastic, they really have got to know my daughter in such a short space of time and have made my wife's transition back to work so much easier.
My older daughter also attended Busy Bees for 3 years so I know my daughter will grow in confidence with her time there.

Both of my children attended Busy Bees at St Matthews. My eldest has recently left to go to school and I cannot praise the staff highly enough for turning him into the sociable, confident boy he started school as. As a result of attending this nursery the transition to school was seamless. He already understood good routines and was used to interacting with peers and adults. My youngest still attends Busy Bees and the staff have been incredibly accommodating when he had to have an operation. Risk assessments for his return were done extremely quickly and communication between staff was exemplary. The staff at this nursery are incredibly friendly and really get to know the children quickly and genuinely care about them. My children love Busy Bees at St Matthews and so do I as a parent. I feel confident when I leave my child that he will be safe, cared for and experience a wide range of stimulating activities.

My son struggled to adjust to the nursery setting when I first went back to work. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating to his needs and ours. As a result, our settling in period was extended without question and we've never looked back. Busy Bees has also accommodated our little one when we've needed. The range of activities offered, the facilities and moreover the staff are brilliant!!! They are incredibly supportive, kind and caring and everyone is so friendly. The variety of foods offered has broadened our fussy eater's tastes and willingness to try new things.
