Reviews

9.2 Busy Bees in Daybrook has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.226)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Daybrook is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Daybrook in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 8 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 4.901 for Busy Bees in Daybrook is calculated as follows: ( (172 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.901

  • 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 4.325 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Daybrook is based on 8 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 24.6 positive Reviews (123 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 24.6 Target = 0.325

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

Since starting the nursery, my nephew always talks about his time at nursery and on several occasions I have picked him up and the nursery is well presented and always has lots for him to do. The staff are welcoming and lovely when I come in.

The safeguarding procedures are very thorough and if I’m not recognised someone will always check to ensure I am who I say I am.

My son has attended the nursery since November 2015 and he has loved it since day one. His development has come on leaps and bounds. The resources and activities planned to meet his individual needs and stage of development which in turn enables him to thrive!

The staff are caring; knowledgeable and dedicated to the children. I can’t find one fault with the nursery. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the nursery to anyone and have already recommended several friends with children. Thank you Busy Bees at Daybrook!

My Daughter attends the nursery 4 days a week and is always happy on arrival and looks like she has had fun when I collect her, this is what is most important to me. The staff are really friendly and approachable and are on hand to advise on development matters when needed. The management team are always available and approachable and always have a smile and greet my daughter on arrival. I feel happy and confident to leave my daughter in their care.

Great nursery, friendly and welcoming staff. My son is 19 months old and enjoys the familiar faces of the staff, even though he is only part time. Clean, well-maintained nursery with a great outdoor play area and car park.

Both my boys attend Busy Bees in Daybrook. My two-year-old is nurtured and cared for. The staff encourage him to try new activities/tastes. My youngest is deaf, the staff have supported his transition to nursery with professionalism and kindness. I know that my boys are being cared for in a safe environment.

My son has been attending this nursery since he was 8 months old and we have been nothing but happy with the service they provide. My son loves going to nursery and has developed so much by attending. Every single member of staff is attentive to the children's needs and they have created a very warm and friendly environment. My son has a great relationship with all the members of staff who care for him. The rooms have lots of space with a new outdoor area. The managers are very friendly and involve parents as much as possible with things that are happening in the nursery. I cannot recommend highly enough.

My little boy has a big smile on his face when I drop him off and is still smiling when I pick him up. He loves being at nursery.

My daughter started at Busy Bees Daybrook in September. The staff have been fantastic (with her and me!) and made a very difficult transition so much easier. She now gets excited about going to nursery and talks about 'the ladies' who look after her constantly. There is a lovely outdoor area, which my daughter absolutely loves playing in and the whole nursery is currently in the process of being redecorated and re-equipped with some lovely stuff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We had recently moved into the area early 2016 and desperately needed to find somewhere that fitted the hours we work, that also provide the best care for our baby. We were amazed when we first looked around the nursery. The staff were welcoming and we felt comfortable leaving our son in their care. We had a couple of minor issues but we had a meeting with the manager to discuss our concerns and we haven't had any issues since! My son loves coming here and is always happy to see the ladies on shift.
The nursery is very clean and there are plenty of toys for the children to play with.
On picking up our son, we often find that he's playing with other children. This is fantastic for him as he's an only child and nursery is his only chance to interact with other children.
We, unfortunately, don't manage to attend parents evenings due to the hours that I work, but we always feel welcome to ask questions if we ever need to.
My son is encouraged to eat his meals that are cooked onsite.

Choosing a nursery was so hard, I wanted my little boy to be happy and settle in so I would feel comfortable leaving him. The team at Busy Bees Daybrook are exceptional, they all made the transition really easy. You're always greeted with a smile and my little boy can't wait to get there. The food is great, the outdoor area is perfect for his needs and it's always clean and well presented. He's well cared for and always has a smile for the staff. I would highly recommend this nursery, the atmosphere is great and my little boy has come on in leaps and bounds. Fantastic Nursery with a personal touch, it's outstanding in my book. I'm a self-confessed over protective mummy, and while I'm at work I never worry about him because I know he's having a great time. The manager and her team are wonderful, plus there's great communication with parents.
