Reviews

9 Busy Bees at Burton has a Review Score of 9 (9.000)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Burton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Burton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 4.722 for Busy Bees at Burton is calculated as follows: ( (131 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.722

  • 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 4.278 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Burton 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.278

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

I never have any worries or concerns when I drop my child off at this nursery. Its the warmest most structured place with the loveliest people. I cannot rate it enough. My child has improved in so many ways (behavioural, learning, kindness) since attending here. I love their unique ways of celebrating seasons and holidays and the involvement of the children and sometimes the families. So pleased I chose this nursery.

All the staff at my child's nursery are always friendly, very approachable and easy to talk to. The nursery is always very clean and the facilities are excellent. The nursery has also had a complete refurbishment recently.
There always seems to be a good variety of toys and activities for the children.
My child is very happy at his nursery and gets excited when we pull up in the carpark in a morning.

The pre-school had a wide range of activities in the run-up to Christmas. They did crafts, snow play, letters to Santa and decoration making. My child loved every one of them and it really added to the magic of Christmas.
The staff are very friendly and always welcoming when my child enters pre-school. Especially in the days he does not want to let mummy go.

What a fantastic and fun filled month for all children at Busy Bees. So many activities both in and out of the nursery. A wonderful play which children and key workers worked so hard to perform and one of the loveliest Christmas fayres I have attended in 6 years of being a mum. The teaching and facilities continue to improve to the delight of children and parents. This nursery demonstrates so much care and passion for creating a fun and loving environment for all.

My daughter has been attending for 18 months and has gained a lot from being here. The layout is very good, with nice outdoor space and plenty of separate areas for different activities. I am kept well informed by the staff of how she is progressing, and nothing is too much trouble for the staff to help with. The availability of booking extra sessions when needed is very useful, as information is shown of sessions with spaces. I'm very glad that I chose it.

My son has been attending full-time at Busy Bees for many months now and is extremely happy here. He has made many close friendships, both with the other children and also with the adult key-workers. The staff have the happiness, welfare and development of the children at the core of everything they do and this is apparent in the many ways in which my son has progressed since being here. The team evidently work very hard to provide a great variety of activities to stimulate the children physically, mentally and emotionally. The environment is spacious and there are plenty of facilities to keep the children entertained. Special credit also has to be given to the catering team, who day in, day out - provide the children with a wide range of healthy tastes, textures and balanced meals. I'm very happy to recommend Busy Bees to other parents.

Currently, my 19-month-old son attends Busy Bees and thoroughly enjoys it. I also have a 5-year-old son that previously attended the nursery too. We have always and continue to be very happy with the care the manager and the team provide. My eldest son has special needs and the team at Burton always made sure his needs were met ensuring his time at the nursery was a happy one. He quite often talks about what he used to do at Busy Bees!! There is always fun and interesting activities to keep the children engaged, making learning a great experience. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this nursery to anyone.

My 2 and a half yr old daughter has been at the nursery since she was 10mths old and loves it here. The nursery has good facilities and they are always coming up with new activities to help the children to develop. My little girl has thrived in this environment and is encouraged on a daily basis. The staff are all friendly and welcoming and I would definitely recommend this nursery.

We are delighted with the care, attention and time invested in our child at this nursery. The activities are fun, educational and stretching. The staff are exceptional, polite, friendly and attentive to both children and parents alike. It is remarkable to see the growth and change that happens from one day to the next in our child, and I would wholeheartedly recommend this nursery to all parents looking for a safe, warm and inspiring environment for their children. I cannot thank all the staff enough for everything you invest in mine and others children at your nursery.

My partner's child has attended the nursery for just over a year now and even on a weekend now wakes up and asks to go! Which goes to show just how brilliant the nursery is. The staff are all very welcoming and will go out of their way to ensure the childcare you pay for is at an outstanding level. There is always a wide range of activities happening every day which is clearly helping our child's education and development, which I can see using our parentzone app, where the staff are always keeping me up to date with what our child is doing when she is at the nursery. From just the short time of dropping off and picking our child up it's easy to see ours and the other children at the nursery are able to form a bond with the staff which is great to know when leaving your child in their care for the day. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for quality childcare!

My little boy has been attending Busy Bees at Burton for a few months, he is really enjoying coming and has made lovely bonds with the staff in the baby room. His development has come on leaps and bounds and I think this is down to the interaction the staff have with all the children. I am very impressed with the care provided and I would recommend to my friends

I would and have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to other parents.
