Reviews

9 Busy Bees at Corby has a Review Score of 9 (8.969)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Corby 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Corby in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.675 for Busy Bees at Corby is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.675

  • 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 4.294 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Corby is based on 5 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 17 positive Reviews (85 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 17 Target = 0.294

  • 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 Corby

We were reluctant to change nursery's but so glad we did. Busy Bee's is right for our boy and he loves it there.
The girls are so good with him and they are so professional. He has come on leaps and bounds in his development since being at Busy Bee's. We are so happy with our selection.
When we moved from Corby we decided to travel out of our way by 20 to 30 minutes just to keep him at Busy Bee's Corby.

Busy Bees at Corby is a warm and welcoming nursery, my little boy has attended since he was 11 months old; he is now in pre-school and has settled in fantastically. The management team always greet us on a morning. The staff team are always welcoming in the room and ask how he is that day. I am always kept up to date with his progress and all activities he has been doing. I have recommended Busy Bees at Corby to family and friends and will continue to do so, they have really helped towards his development and social skills making him a confident little man.

My child has attended Busy Bees since he was 7 months old. He is now nearly 3 years old and ready to move to the pre-school room. He has always enjoyed going to the nursery and is greeted with a warm, friendly welcome every morning by the lovely staff. All the staff across all areas of the nursery are extremely helpful and ensure my child is happy and well looked after. There are a wide range of activities available to him both inside and out. I would recommend this nursery to any parent looking for high-quality care and a caring environment for their child, it's fab!

My daughter loves going to the nursery. She is 18 months and gets very excited every morning when she gets her coat on and sees the yellow bee backpack. She is always bringing home lovely drawings. I have just had a beautiful card for Mother's Day. I believe she is well cared for, always happy and content when I go to pick her up. Recommend this nursery to anyone.

The nursery has gone through a lot of changes in management since my daughter started in 2014. I am now starting to see a positive change with staff and children (including my daughter) all seem a lot happier. My daughter loves the activities that she gets to do whilst in nursery and we are currently looking forward to seeing the Christmas carol service that my daughter is taking part in next week.

If you are looking for a nursery that understands that every child is an individual and develops activities specific for your child's developmental needs, this is the nursery for you. My son has attended this nursery since he was 11 months old and I couldn't be happier.
The management and staff are supportive to parents and your child. This was the best choice of nursery for me and my son.
