Reviews

9.4 Busy Bees at Nottingham City Hospital has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.367)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Nottingham City Hospital 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Nottingham City Hospital in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.95 for Busy Bees at Nottingham City Hospital is calculated as follows: ( (114 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.95

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Nottingham City Hospital 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 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.417

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

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was one years old and is in pre-school at the moment. She looks forward to going to nursery each day and I can see the learning and growth in her development which is supported by the fantastic staff. I drop her off knowing she is cared for and safe which is perfect for any parent.

I am very impressed that my son has two books that come home with him. One is his food and sleeping diary, and one is about his development or achievements that I can write in myself and also the nursery to me. I have phoned to talk to my child's key worker on several occasions and been transferred straight over and my concerns have been dealt with promptly.

I was hesitant for my 1st child to attend nursery. From day 1 I was put at ease with the friendly and approachable staff and the whole environment and atmosphere of the nursery. My daughter loves coming to nursery and her social skills and other developmental milestones have surpassed those of other children her age, which I entirely put down to her experience and enjoyment of nursery. Her key worker is lovely and I have no reservations leaving my little one with her and her team. Excellent.

My daughter enjoys her time at Busy Bees and it is very convenient being on the same site that I work at as well as having the reassurance that I am close by if she needs me. The staff are very caring and supportive of her and I feel that she is well looked after while I am at work.

This is the second time my child has attended this nursery. I cannot pick fault. From smiling faces when you walk through the door to the way staff interact with my child is exceptional. I would highly recommend this nursery. The fees are a little high but the quality of care reflects this. I am happy to pay every single penny.
Brilliant, in-depth development plans are in place to identify which stage your child is at. High-quality food menus. Activities varied and catered to specific ages ranges. And above everything, respect for me and my child.

My little boy has been coming to Busy Bees since he was 6 months old. He absolutely loves it, the smile on his face when we pull up of a morning just says it all.

I was nervous at first leaving him but there was absolutely no need, the staff are all so friendly and really look after him, he loves the activities and love dancing on a Tuesday (my Strictly star in the making). It is great that they get to play outside so often and he loves the slide!

The food is great he eats everything put in front of him (something I sometimes struggle with).

I love the diary I know what he's done every day including nappies, drinks, food, sleep and activities.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery to anyone.

We have been using Busy Bees City Hospital for 5 months now and the nursery go above and beyond to help you. Our baby started when he just turned 1 and has allergies to both wheat and dairy and the nursery cater for him with no problems.
We absolutely love our key worker she has made the step into nursery easier for both myself and our baby. We are all sad to be leaving her to move to the next room soon but I have no worries that the service will remain high quality. Before he started the nursery we went to the free stay and play sessions which gave me a feel for the nursery and the staff, this made me feel happier about leaving him when I started work again.
The rooms are lovely with lots of items to keep him amused and I love the fact that each room has their own outdoor space. I also love that all the staff make an effort to talk to us on our way out even although they are not from his room, they all seem to know him. This nursery is fantastic, I can not recommend it enough!!!
