The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Wollaton, Nottingham 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Wollaton, Nottingham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.917 for Busy Bees in Wollaton, Nottingham is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.342 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Wollaton, Nottingham is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 21.8 positive Reviews (109 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 21.8 Target = 0.092

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

We are really happy with Busy Bees Wollaton, our little boy has attended from a baby and he has grown and developed well within the baby unit, he has recently moved to the toddler room. He is really happy going to nursery. All the staff are really friendly and helpful and my son has formed good bonds with the staff in his room.

My son has been attending the nursery for nearly a year now and he really enjoys it.
The staff are lovely and very caring and every morning I am confident I leave him in safe hands.
The communication is also really good - At the end of each day the staff always provide me with feedback about my son and I can also log into a Busy Bees online portal to track his sleep, eating and activities. If I am concerned about anything or want to check how he is doing, I can call any time through the day and the staff would happily give me an update.
I am very happy with the activities provided like weekly Jo Jingles classes, painting, even creating Christmas decorations which my son is really enjoying!
There is also a good range of toys babies can play with, all carefully selected for the correct age group.
The meals are prepared on site and my child always enjoys them. He is a food allergy sufferer and the nursery had no problem accommodating his needs.

I would recommend the nursery.

My little boy is 3 years old and has attended nursery since the summer of 2014 and has really thrived and developed in so many ways. The rooms are exciting and stimulating allowing children to develop their social, creative, communication and listening skills as well as their physical and emotional development. The staff are really warm, friendly and welcoming and my son has formed lovely bonds with his key workers. Nothing is too much trouble and you are always greeted with a smiley face when entering the nursery. The office has an open door policy and you never feel like you are intruding. We are always kept up to date with his progress both through when being dropped off or collected and regular parents evenings. I can honestly say I will be sad when he leaves next year and I'm sure he will feel the same. I strongly recommend any parent/carer who are thinking of sending their little one to nursery to have a visit.

My little boy has attended Busy Bees Wollaton since he was 1 year old. He is now 3 and a half and we couldn't be happier with how well he is cared for. The nursery provides a safe, caring and fun environment for my little boy to enjoy visiting.
The staff are so kind and caring and look after the children so well. I feel like my little boy is very safe in their care.
The educational activities provided to the children are well thought out and make for an enjoyable learning experience. Each child has a key worker who really makes an effort to plan the care and educational activities for their children.
The nursery is very well managed, both in an individual room and overall level. All of the staff are approachable and give good feedback at the end of each day.
I couldn't recommend this nursery highly enough.
