  • 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 4.717 for Busy Bees in Altrincham is calculated as follows: ( (43 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.717

  • 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 3.346 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Altrincham 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 20.8 positive Reviews (104 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 20.8 Target = 0.096

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

Both my grandchildren have attended Busy Bees for some time and are extremely happy, settled and look forward to nursery days. They have wonderful relationships with the staff who are very professional, friendly and committed to all the children.

I would recommend Busy Bees to anyone looking for a warm, friendly and nurturing environment for their child's early years.

I have a son in the preschool and he is very happy at Busy Bees. He has a lovely group of friends and a wonderful bond with his carers. He really enjoys baking with his friends and playing in the play house in the garden. My youngest son has just joined the baby room and all the staff couldn't have been nicer in helping him settle in. The facilities at the nursery are great, especially the jungle room. I am looking forward to the preschool nativity play at Christmas :)
