The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Norton Canes 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Norton Canes in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.829 for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Norton Canes is calculated as follows: ( (199 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 240 Ratings = 4.829

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Honeybuns Day Nursery - Norton Canes is based on 11 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 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 Honeybuns Day Nursery - Norton Canes

My son has attended Honeybuns since he was nine months old. All of the staff work really hard to provide a warm and welcoming environment for children and parents, and their parental involvement and communication is excellent. It is fantastic to be able to use the online app to access our sons learning journal and view his daily routine.
We have always felt extremely confident in the care that our son receives and the individual learning tailored to meet his development. Our son loves attending Honeybuns and always runs in happily with a smile, which is so reassuring for us. He has blossomed into a very confident and happy little boy and we truly feel that the staff and the care he has received at Honeybuns have contributed to this.
They provide a lovely range of healthy meals that our little boy loves and have been brilliant in catering for our son's many food allergies and intolerances.
We always recommend Honeybuns to friends and family looking for childcare!

My daughter has been at the nursery since March 2017, during this time all staff have been professional, informative and sensitive to our ongoing adoption process. The nursery has a lovely outdoor area, cosy corner, and regular parent activities take place during my daughters learning. My daughter has blossomed, she is confident and she loves going to nursery. The nursery is very clean, there is a healthy variety of food given to the children. The nursery has regular open events and parents evenings. They also had a sports day which was lovely to see all the children taking part.

Both my children have attended this nursery and my youngest still attends. The care my children have received from this nursery has always been exceptional. The staff always go out of their way to help and are always have a smile on the face. Both children love it at nursery and it's very reassuring when I have to leave for work and my little boy smiles, waves and walks off without a second thought.

My daughter has been attending Honeybuns since she was 9months old. All the staff are fabulous and we never worry about her as we know she is in fantastic care. Our daughter has recently started learning French at nursery and really enjoys it. She has made lots of friends here and looks forward to going every morning.

If we have another child, I would certainly be enrolling them in Honeybuns and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

My daughter loves it which is the most important thing. She feels safe and happy and loves the staff. They have been able to accommodate changes to care (needing extra days) and are very helpful.
They offer extracurricular activities that school nurseries don't and you genuinely feel like they know your child inside and out. Feedback is given daily and very personal and detailed. Very happy indeed.

I am a shift worker and my son who has just turned 2, he has been attending the nursery for around 12 months now. The nursery have been amazing with me and my son, especially of late when he has not wanted to be separated from me. All of the ladies have been very supportive and accommodating to my shifts and take great care of my little boy. I can't thank them enough.

My first born never went to nursery as it wasn't needed, however, my second went to Honeybuns since 7months old until he was 3. Not once did I worry about him as I knew he was in such good hands. He has done nothing but thrive since day one and I genuinely believe it's down to each and everyone involved in his journey at Honeybuns!

I can't thank them enough for giving him that start in life and making him into a confident, bright young boy!

Both my children have attended the nursery and I have been exceptionally happy with the care and learning opportunities provided to both. They enjoyed all the activities on offer and were always happy to go to nursery. The staff are all excellent and really care for all the children like they were their own. I have recommended the nursery to a number of my friends who are also happy with the nursery.

My son loved his time here and made lots of friends. The staff were always supportive and very welcoming. They were always there to help and answer any questions we had. He enjoyed learning his letters and sounds and would love telling us about what he'd learnt. I felt very comfortable leaving my child in the nurseries care and he formed great relationships with the staff. The skills and confidence he has gained at the nursery have really helped with his transition into school.

I would recommend the nursery to others.

Fantastic nursery staff are amazing, so friendly and supportive. I have sent both my children here and will be sending the third. Would not recommend anywhere else but here they have helped both my children grow and become the kids they are now. They put all their effort into the children and I feel they all do an amazing job in looking after your children and helping them grow and learn x

Both my girls have been to this nursery and have come on in leaps and bounds. Staff are very supportive and approachable and help where it's needed. Including support with your learning to talk and potty training. I will be using the nursery again for my other children .

My son has attended Honeybun's since he was 10 months old and enjoys time spent at Nursery. He often asks if it is a nursery day. We have found staff to be welcoming and helpful. We are kept well informed of daily activities and his overall progress. My son often drags his feet when it comes to leaving which tells me his time spent at Honeybuns is a pleasant and enjoyable one! He is able to refer to all the staff by name and will often look for them on arriving and leaving to have a few minutes chat and lots of cuddles. We are quite sad that his time at nursery will soon be coming to an end.

Since my daughter started here she has blossomed in all areas of development. I am really happy with the care and nurturing that my daughter gets from this nursery and she is always smiling and happy when I pick her up. I have no complaints or worries about Honeybuns and feel they do an amazing job & I'd highly recommend this place to other parents for their children.

My son has been attending Honeybuns now for over 2 years, I have watched him grow into a happy, confident and friendly little boy. All of the staff take the time to welcome you in a morning, they all address my child personally, even those that don't have day to day involvement with him. Development wise, the staff keep you up to date with everything that your child is doing, even though there are regular parents evenings and termly reports from Build a Profile you don't feel that you have to wait for these as the staff update you daily on what your child has been doing. My son has gained a lot of confidence and his social skills have progressed greatly, academically he is challenged and it is clear to see what he has learnt when I watch him at home. He thoroughly enjoys going to nursery, the activities are varied and the children are encouraged to reach their full potential.
I knew as soon as I visited Honeybuns that it was the right nursery for my child, it really does feel like a family that I am proud for my son to be a part of and I for one will be shedding a few tears when he moves onto his next chapter in September.

My son has been attending this nursery for nearly 12 months. I am very pleased with how my son has developed from his confidence in social skills, potty training, speech as well as problem solving. All the staff are very friendly and keep you well informed about your child's progress. I thoroughly enjoy reading my son's progress report every term and love seeing the photos. The activities the children take part in always have a unique theme which is always fun to take part in, as well as charity events including an annual sponsored walk.

Following a thoroughly negative experience at another nursery my daughter settled with ease into the Honeybuns family. The staff genuinely care about each child including staff that don't come into day to day contact with her but make an effort to chat to her. They encourage my core values of good manners, treating others well and trying our best at whatever we try, and this is reflected in my daughters mimicry at home of her time in nursery. Communication to home from the nursery is excellent with daily rundowns and build a profile reporting.
Our family has recently grown, which could be a most difficult experience in a 3 year olds life, but with the support of her key worker and surrounding staff who have nurtured the idea of being a big sister, she has excelled in this role. My new baby will be going to Honeybuns when I return to work.
