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 4.75 for Busy Bees in Formby is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 3.763 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Formby is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.263

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

Our daughter loves attending nursery. She gets so excited when we pull up outside. The smile on her face is amazing to see. All staff are very friendly, happy and show a caring nature towards her. We feel very comfortable leaving her in the care of the staff knowing she is looked after so well. Our daughter also enjoys the food given to her that is prepared on site by the cook. It's always a healthy and varied diet.

My daughter loves going in to see all the staff. They always greet her with a happy smile and quick to take her belongings. She always has a fun day. Busy Bees staff always know what my daughter enjoys and do their best to make sure she has a varied, fun-filled day. The food is exceptional. Always a variety of different tastes which my daughter always eats and apparently has seconds. I have no worries or concerns which is essential as a working mum.

I have put all my three children through Busy Bees. I remember looking around nurseries when my first child was only 18 months and was being worried about leaving my child in the hands of people I didn't know but as soon as I visited Busy Bees Formby, I felt immediately at ease. The staff were so friendly and welcoming which has continued over the 9 years that my children have been there. Thank you so much, Busy Bees, keep up the great work.
