  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 17 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.709 for Busy Bees in Wootton Fields is calculated as follows: ( (180 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 251 Ratings = 4.709

  • 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 4.787 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Wootton Fields is based on 17 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). 17 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.787

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

Busy Bees has created a well rounded social child of my daughter. She can't wait to arrive in the morning and doesn't want to leave at lunchtime.
Her key worker is her carer and her best friend.
We couldn't ask for a better team to look after our princess.

I am new to the area and from the enquiries up to my daughter starting I have had excellent services and support from everyone at Busy Bees. I have been listened to regarding my concerns and have had excellent feedback.
My child has been to numerous settings but this is the first nursery where she has been truly happy. This is a joy to see.
I can't praise this nursery enough and though she will only be here a short time I know that she will be ready for school in September.

It took my son around 5 months to really settle in and seem comfortable but in that time, the staff really went out of their way to help him feel comfortable.

There were days that I would come to collect him and the ladies would be cuddling him and really seemed to care about him. Staff around the nursery, not just his room, will always acknowledge him and they all seem to know every child's name.

Extremely happy with the service I get with my little boy here. I speak to all levels daily and they have always been friendly, enthusiastic and helpful.

My little boy really enjoys going in and is always happy afterwards from his fun-filled day.

They have healthy food cooked on site and every day is varied to help the children develop.

A great nursery where my 1st son attended and I couldn't fault. So my decision to send my 2nd son was so easy to make. Again all staff and room cater well for all the children's needs.

My daughter is just starting in 'Poppies' and every effort is being made to help her and me acclimatise to the nursery. The settle sessions are going really well and I am confident that by the time she starts her full days it will be smooth, for her anyway. Very warm and caring environment.

I think Busy Bees has been fantastic from day one and through all my child's development. The carers always keep me updated on what my child has been up to during the day. My little boy seems happy playing all day with the other children and he has made special bonds with his carers, he definitely has a few favourites!

My child has been at Busy Bees Nursery in Wootton since he was 7 months old and he is now 3 1/2. He is happy to come into the nursery and has made so many friends. The staff are warm and welcoming to me and my child. I have been really happy with all the care he has been given. The preschool room is wonderful, lots going on and they are working hard to get him ready for school. The food is great, hot meals every day (better than my cooking at home)! There is lots of outside space which is great for my little boy who is on the go all the time.

This nursery is actually over 5 miles away, but I walked in and it felt right. Clean, happy children, great staff and instantly I knew this nursery won hands down over the others I visited. The food menu changes and involves all foods from around the world. Fun days and weekly activities keep my son entertained. All staff build a relationship with you and management are approachable. Over Christmas the nursery made with the kids, gifts for the parents, calenders, cards, tree decorations. I love to know what he's been doing. I am one very happy parent.
