Reviews

8.7 Busy Bees at Nottingham University has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.700)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Nottingham University is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Nottingham University 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 4.44 for Busy Bees at Nottingham University is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.44

  • 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 4.26 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Nottingham University 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 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.260

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

All three of my children have attended this nursery since 2011 with my youngest still there. My daughter is quite shy but I feel like she has gained a lot of confidence and is always happy to go in. When I pick her up, she's excited to tell me the fun things she has done. Staff are helpful and friendly have always made an effort to get to know my children's individual needs.

My daughter was well looked after from day one and I always felt happy leaving her in the care of the staff. Staff always showed they knew my daughter well, from listening to the feedback I was given they clearly had taken the time to get to know her individual needs. Now she is older she tells me about all the exciting things she does and often will sing songs that she has learnt from their staff.

My daughter has attended this nursery since September 2013. She has developed well and gained confidence socialising and interacting with others.
In the early years, I had to complain about my daughter coming home with dirty clothes, but this was dealt with by staff members.

Outdoor equipment poor.
There is no computer and the smartboard hasn't worked, no sound.

The staff at Busy Bees take great care of my daughter. She is happy to go and always participates in exciting activities. I have 100% trust with the staff as they're always honest and consistent with their feedback. The nursery is bright and welcoming and I always receive a friendly smile. Staff are always interested in my daughter's home life and remember about activities that we have planned to spark conversation after.
