Reviews

9.6 Busy Bees in Loughborough has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.606)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Loughborough 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Loughborough in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 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 4.731 for Busy Bees in Loughborough is calculated as follows: ( (80 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.731

  • 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 4.875 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Loughborough is based on 7 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.875

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

Fantastic staff! Really approachable, helpful and highly experienced. The nursery is lovely, each age range has their own room to play and learn in. We've also found it very clean. You can tell the staff do the job because they love it. Very caring and nothing is too much trouble. Excellent!

My baby loves being there. Couldn't have found a better nursery. I know that he is in good hands. It's not only about socialising but he is gaining skills for life as well. I am happy with how the nursery staff stimulate my child's development by play.

Busy Bees Loughborough is a fantastic nursery. My child has been with them from 6 months old through to 3 years. There is an abundance of toys and games for her to play with, inside and out. It has been great to watch her develop over the years through the learning environment practised by the friendly staff. There have never been any issues with booking extra days and there are sometimes discounts on these such as "bogof". I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for child care, I couldn't have asked for a better service from them.

All the staff at Busy Bees are amazing. They care for my son and his own individual needs very well. My son's speech and language have majorly improved whilst being at Busy Bees. He also now knows nursery rhymes such as the wheels on the bus which he didn't know before. Very happy.

Overall we were pleased with my our son's recent review, which we found informative and well presented. As his parents we are happy with how he has settled at Busy Bees and are pleased with how he's developing, which is a credit to the staff. He is also confident around other children and mixes well, which we believe is down to his time at Busy Bees.
