Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.916 for Busy Bees at Wigan, Marylebone is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 4.342 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Wigan, Marylebone 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.342

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

My Granddaughter started at the nursery at the age of 10 months. She absolutely loves every minute and is always full of smiles when I collect. As a grandparent, I was initially upset that my daughter chose to send her to nursery, rather than allowing me to support and provide childcare. However, seeing the smile on my granddaughter's face melts my heart. She lights up when she sees her key worker and loves exploring all the exciting activities that nursery provides. I now realise that nursery was without a doubt the best decision.

I highly recommend Busy Bees on Walkden Avenue, My daughter started in the baby room and has now moved up in the toddler room and loves every minute. Myself and my wife used to love reading through her daily diary and hearing all about her day and since she has moved rooms, we now love all the photographs and artwork that she brings home.
She has not only progressed in her development, but also in her personality. We cherish every minute that she attends and can not thank the staff enough for all the love, care and dedication that she has received.

My son has been attending this nursery for 2 and a half years. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming. They provide a brilliant menu and my son really enjoys his meals at nursery. My son's key person always seems to go the extra mile and is always meeting his needs. I have attended regular parents evening and show and tell evenings which I feel are a fab opportunity to get feedback and support on my child's development. Overall the nursery is fantastic!

My nephew has recently started to attend Busy Bees one day a week and has really settled in well. The staff are very friendly and welcoming which gives me a lot of reassurance when I leave him. There are always a range of activities set out, that are exciting and fun for the children that provide a range of development opportunities. My nephew can be a fussy eater but I always find he enjoys the meals he has at Busy Bees, as the menu provides a variety of different foods. I would recommend this nursery as I feel even just from a few weeks my nephew has come on a lot and I am looking forward to watching him to continue to grow and develop through Busy Bees.

My son attends Busy Bees nursery 3 mornings a week. When I drop him off we are greeted with a lovely friendly welcome. The staff are always pleasant and happy. My son is always happy for me to leave him. He has a good bond with his key worker and I am impressed with the care he receives. There is always a variety of activities both inside and in the garden. When I pick him up he always has a big smile on his face and is always clean, with a fresh nappy. My son has a daily communication diary, which I think is great as it lets me know how he has been and what he's been doing as well as what he has eaten and nappies etc. I am very happy with the quality of care and would definitely recommend it.

My daughter does 2 full sessions at the nursery and I am impressed with the care she receives. She is always willing to go to her key worker and feel she makes an effort with her and me to ensure she is settled and happy. Creative work is sent home in her diary and communication is good. If I have any request for the key worker she is more then happy to do. There is always equipment provided to explore and needs are always met.
