Reviews

7.7 Busy Bees at Carlton Park has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.673)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Carlton Park is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Carlton Park 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 4.625 for Busy Bees at Carlton Park is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.625

  • 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 3.048 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Carlton Park is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 21 Target = 0.048

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

Both my children attend (ed) Busy Bees at Carlton Park and I am extremely happy with the care and service provided by all the staff who genuinely enjoy working there.
The children both look forward to going and have thrived there, making friends, learning new skills and getting ready to go to School.
This has been such an enjoyable time of their lives & it's all down to the manager and her team.

My youngest Son has attended this nursery since September 2015 following a move from another nursery. He was made to feel welcome and settled in very quickly due to excellent and caring staff. My Son has made many friends and enjoys the numerous and varied activities that the nursery team tirelessly create. The facilities are excellent and maintained well. The food is freshly prepared every day by the onsite kitchen team with a varied and healthy menu which my Son enjoys. The management team are friendly and approachable and are very keen to ensure the highest standards are maintained.

This is one of the more expensive nurseries in the area but having visited a number of others you really do get what you pay for which for me is the comfort of knowing my child is safe, happy and developing well in time for school next year.

Busy Bees at Carlton Park is a very good nursery. The staff are so friendly and kind and look after my son exceptionally well. I always know he is in safe and happy hands when he's there. They provide many opportunities for days away, special activities and tennis lessons at the nearby gym. My son has special dietary needs which are mostly catered for. I would recommend this nursery.

I cannot recommend this Nursery to any prospective parents more highly! Our second daughter has been here full time since April 2016, after our first daughter left to go to school in July 2015, again having attended full time since October 2011. Both girls have been so happy at Nursery and that is mainly due to the amazing staff in every room throughout the nursery, who care so much about the children they look after. We really feel that we are dropping our daughter off with her second family and she has so many opportunities to get involved with. In the baby room she regularly paints, cooks and has a visiting music group and as she gets older will have trips and tennis lessons to look forward too. If you are looking for a family, fun and full of energy place for your child to go, then visit Busy Bees at Carlton Park.

Great place, great facilities, great staff. Our son loves going, the nursery is attentive to his needs, doesn't try force a routine on him. There seems to be a low turnover of staff, which means great consistency and quality. The food is quality, freshly prepared on site, Soil Association Silver Awarded.
The outdoor space is usable all year round with an astro-turf area, separated into age appropriate areas and has an open grass area available too. Premises is clean, well designed and key fob controlled.
Would highly recommend to any parents. Price is on the high side, but only a couple of pounds a day, about average and what price is your child's happiness as well as peace of mind!?
