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 4.917 for Busy Bees at Wigan, Scholes is calculated as follows: ( (78 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 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 4.266 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Wigan, Scholes 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 18.8 positive Reviews (94 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 18.8 Target = 0.266

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

Busy Bees at Wigan, Scholes is a nursery I would recommend to everyone I know. The staff are excellent.
There is a welcoming feeling as you walk through the door which allows myself as a parent to trust the staff with my child.
My child’s motor skills and confidence have grown throughout her time at Busy Bees and more recently she has been coming home singing songs and rhymes and also counting very fluently which is brilliant.
I am very happy with the service provided and my child loves attending nursery.

On dropping off my goddaughter for the first time, I have to say how impressed I was with the nursery. The staff were extremely professional, kind and caring. The room I dropped her off in had loads of activities set out ready for the day and she was very excited to get started.

My son absolutely loves attending Busy Bees. His confidence has grown so much and he has made lots of new friends. All of the staff are amazing and friendly. Will be very sad when he leaves to go to school in September!

The staff are very friendly. The nursery has just had a new manager take over. I have noticed that there seems to be new staff a lot. It would be better for the children and reassurance for the parents that the staff are permanent so both children and parents can get to know them. The nursery is very clean, child friendly and is very welcoming. I feel very comfortable letting my child stay there while I'm at work.
