The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Leamington Spa 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Leamington Spa in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.0 out of 5 from 1 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 4.842 for Busy Bees in Leamington Spa is calculated as follows: ( (83 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.842

  • 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 3.041 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Leamington Spa is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 24.4 positive Reviews (122 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 24.4 Target = 0.041

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

Our son has only been at the nursery for six months but in that time there has been a noticeable improvement in many aspects of his development. He really enjoys his days there, especially the lunches, and has bonded well with the staff both in his room and across the nursery's staff.

Our only negative is that there doesn't seem to be a major focus on the use of key workers and how they take an active involvement in the development and communication with parents regarding our son's progress.

I'm really impressed with Busy Bees Day Nursery in Leamington Spa.

There is a spacious and well-equipped garden connected to each room, where the children go out to play regardless of the weather. I love that my daughter gets to spend so much time outdoors running around. There are lots of activities on offer - sand & water tables, a reading nook, many different toys and lots of singing & dancing.
The food is freshly cooked on-site and eating at the table, using cutlery, is the norm, meaning that my daughter's picky habits are improving and she is much more independent at mealtimes now!

Each day, the nursery nurses give a detailed verbal report of what my daughter has been up to during the day - how long she slept, what she ate, what she enjoyed doing - and a photo scrapbook is maintained to keep a record of activities. I feel this is the only area which could be improved with some investment - an online portal where parents can view photos from that day would be absolutely perfect!

This review writes itself. My daughter has attended Busy Bees Leamington since she was one and I have always been thoroughly impressed with the nursery. Having three children, I was very clear on what I needed from a nursery and Busy Bees is excellent. The facilities are spacious and clean, and the outside space is great - it is very accessible so the children can be in and out a lot. The atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly and there are lots of brilliant family occasions to get involved in too - it is lovely to spend time in the nursery outside the normal busyness of working life! My daughter is now in preschool and is very happy there. I have always been impressed by the way they show an interest in my child as an individual - they have understood food likes and dislikes and encouraged wider eating; have dealt excellently with a medical condition; have tailored activities to her special interests, and had endless patience with potty training. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery.

My daughter started in the nursery this month, aged 1 year. The staff are friendly and helpful, they've been so kind and supportive during the settling in period. They were also very flexible on the number and timing of settling in sessions. They've been very willing to accommodate her routines and comfort items. I get a verbal report every day of how she's been doing, what she's eaten and what activities she has enjoyed. She has relaxed into her new routine very quickly.

Absolutely brilliant staff - the manager is fantastic and just overall lovely nursery and environment. Very clean and lovely nursery and would highly recommend - must admit as with any nursery, it's very expensive - but as they say you get what you pay for.

Tthis is a great nursery! The staff really care for the children and know all the children (not just their class) by name. The management team are always accessible and actively involved in the day to day care of the children, they are flexible, child and parent focused and have a genuine desire to make this the best experience for the children. They offer a range of activities for the children that are age appropriate. I am 100% confident of the care of my child whilst at Busy Bees. The experience enriches my child's life.

My daughters have been attending this nursery since 2010. My youngest has just finished pre-school in July 2016. Busy Bees has been a part of our routine for the last 6 years. It saddens me to see them leave as the care and staff have been amazing since day one. The staff, have helped through separation anxiety, tough morning drop-offs with tears, and I have left feeling reassured that they will both be happy and cared for. Always was greeted with a smile and by the children's names, which is such a nice touch.

Both my children went to this nursery when I returned to work following maternity leave, and stayed there until starting school. The nursery has been brilliant, it is so hard to hand your precious baby over to go back to work, and the support and care that both my children and I received throughout their time at the nursery has been faultless.
