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 4.553 for Busy Bees at Wellingborough is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.553

  • 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 4.3 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Wellingborough 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.300

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

Reviewer Connection to Busy Bees at Wellingborough

  • Mother of Child
    11

My daughter loves going to nursery now. She took a while to settle but the staff were so good with that. All the staff are lovely, friendly and always say hello/bye.

A well-equipped nursery with plenty of toys to keep them occupied. The food is very varied and my daughter always eats it. It feels like the staff really care about the children and their happiness.

It's nice that they do so many crafts/activities to match significant events - mother's day, Christmas, Chinese New Year etc.

My son and daughter both attend the setting. They love to come to the nursery and don't want to leave. My daughter had trouble settling in, however, the staff in 'Owls' made my daughter love to come. She has also made my daughter grow and become school ready for September - she is great. The manager is very approachable and if I ever have any issues she is very quick to sort out my issues also the nursery overall is a very good nursery!

I am a mum of two. I have a son in Signets and a daughter in Owls. I am very happy with both rooms! My daughter is getting ready for school and my daughter's key worker has been nothing but amazing in preparing her for the next big step in her life. My daughter learns new things every day from her preschool teacher. My son is currently going through the difficult stage in his toddler hood and the staff in signets are fantastically understanding of it. He is becoming better and his speech has developed well since starting the Nursery. I always get regular updates on their development, and the learning journals they have are fantastic to keep track of their development. A great keepsake for me too!! The manager is also very welcoming every time I drop my children off. She will always say hello with a smile and wish me a good day when I leave!

The staff are always polite and friendly and extremely helpful. We always get a friendly welcome from all staff when we visit. My daughter s now 4yrs and in pre-school and enjoys the two days she goes. She has made lots of friends and her learning has come on no end. Her baby sister will start two mornings a week and I have no worries about her settling in.
Thank you to all the staff for making it a friendly place for our children to learn and grow. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this nursery.

Any anxiety I was experiencing prior to my daughter starting nursery was instantly squashed from the very start. I felt completely at ease and my daughter settled in quickly and without any problem. In fact, she completely loves nursery and has remained a very happy and content little girl who is progressing wonderfully. The staff are truly brilliant and every day I look forward to hearing how my daughter's day has been what she has learned and the milestones she has achieved. My other daughter is due to attend the same nursery very soon and I have no concerns regarding her journey into the outside world and school hood. I would definitely recommend the nursery and feel the staff are well deserving of huge thanks in the achievement they help establish with each and every child in their care.

My son is in preschool and enjoys the different areas in the room. He loves the garden and the new additions recently made. The nursery manager is keen to ensure all children are settled in their surroundings and is a regular feature around the different rooms.

My child has attended this nursery since she was 10 months old and is now aged 3. Regardless of the room she was in, all staff have been caring, kind and professional at all times. My child thoroughly enjoys her time at nursery, and has developed into a bright little girl.

My son has been in the nursery since January 2015, since then he has grown and passed through all the classes and is currently in Wagtail at the age of 3. His development and skill set is largely due to his lovely, selfless carers. The entire team know my son inside out. Their love and attention to detail is outstanding. I feel 100% pleased and satisfied with the outstanding care and attention that this nursery provides my son.
