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 4.836 for Busy Bees in Bromborough is calculated as follows: ( (220 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 262 Ratings = 4.836

  • 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 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Bromborough is based on 14 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 21 positive Reviews (105 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 21 Target = 0.667

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

I fell in love with Busy Bees before my daughter even arrived! From each doctors appointment throughout my pregnancy all I could hear were happy noises coming from the children enjoying the outdoors at Busy Bees.
The staff are very friendly, down to earth and approachable. It is clear to see that they form beautiful bonds with all the children in their care. My daughter is a poor eater and both her key workers in the Baby Room and now Toddler Room are very attentive to her needs. The children have lots of space and equipment to play with and they never appear bored.
I cannot recommend Busy Bees enough!

I cannot rate this nursery highly enough. The staff team are fantastic, nurturing, professional, knowledgeable and really care about the children and work they do.
The environment is child focussed, light, airy and welcoming - although I would like the outdoor area to be bigger but this is due to limited availability. Food is excellent and there are always alternatives available. Focus on learning and developmental needs of children is excellent.

I have one child currently in Busy Bees and one who left in September 2017. Both my children love Busy Bees and have excellent relationships with the staff. I am extremely happy with all aspects of the nursery and am so happy that I chose Busy Bees for my children. I have recommended Busy Bees to friends in the past and would definitely recommend it in the future.

Both of my boys love Busy Bees, they are really happy there and we never have a problem getting them in in the mornings. The staff are friendly and caring and ensure that the children to get the most out of their nursery experience. They provide a range of activities for the children to gain different experiences and I feel that my children have made really good progress there.

I have confidence in Busy Bees to keep my children safe and happy and have already recommended them to 2 relatives. The management team are supportive to parents and have always tried to accommodate us with any additional sessions that we might need.

My son has been at Busy Bees nursery since he was 1 and has moved through the different rooms, to pre-school. The one thing that is very consistent is the caring nature of the staff, they clearly love all the kids and the environment is nurturing and structured. Time and effort is made to ensure the children are developed and it certainly shows. My son has learned valuable life and social skills, which will set him up for school. I trust the staff and know my son is safe. I sometimes feel like there are lots of children in the pre-school room, but I know the room is staffed to the appropriate level to manage this.

The app that is provided for parents an added advantage, allowing me to be updated about activities through his week. I would love to see more pictures though :) I originally chose Busy Bees because of the environment created for the children and the fact the staff were so great with the kids, my instinct was right and I am happy and more importantly so is my son.

Excellent nursery. So welcoming and staff are always prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure that the children are happy and comfortable in the nursery environment. We moved our son from another local nursery, due to some issues that we had. It was certainly the right decision. Our son was experiencing some anxiety with nursery attendance, due to having an irregular pattern.

We attended the day after raising our concerns. We found the staff had set up an area of the nursery just for our son. It specifically contained all space themed things that made our son so happy. We were so happy with how the nursery helped our son settle back in and put a smile back on his face. Staff are very professional and we know that our son is happy and developing well.

I feel that my child is treated with genuine kindness and respect by all the staff. I would prefer smaller numbers in rooms but appreciate that staffing levels are adequate and children are split into groups for activities.
I would love more outdoor space and greater range of outdoor activities. Happy with resources and equipment and that these are used effectively by staff to encourage opportunities for learning and play.
Grateful for good and interesting handover information and that we are kept informed of significant events.

My child has been coming to Busy Bees since she was 13 months old, we've loved how it feels like a big family and she's always felt comfortable with the staff. We've been very impressed with the innovations brought to the nursery (mud kitchen, languages sessions in French) and we're looking forward to all the new things for next year!

I have twins girls who have both attended this nursery from Jan 2016. One of my twins receives 1:2:1 support as has ASD and is non-verbal. Both my girls have received outstanding care from the very beginning by all the staff members who are thoughtful, caring and professional. I can always approach staff members for advice and support in regards to my girls and I personally think the nursery definitely deserves the "outstanding" credit it receives. Busy Bees has helped me receive and implement ongoing support from many agencies (ASD, EMIT, SALT, ECT) and we are always reviewing my daughter's plan, making changes if needed and they continue to support me with my daughters ECHP process, which is an emotional thing to go through. Very proud to say my daughters attend this nursery and praise and recognition to be given on a job well done. Thank you!

Outstanding nursery. My daughter has been there since 9 months old and loved every room. All her key workers have been fantastic with her and making her transition to each room easy especially in the preschool. I have recommended this nursery to a friend.

A lovely, friendly and caring place which is like a home from home and I have no hesitation leaving my son there as I know he is in safe hands. He loves being there as they have lovely gardens for the children to play in and plenty of activities inside to keep them entertained. They are given healthy well-balanced meals and the care provided to the children when they are poorly is second to none. 10/10 for Busy Bees in Bromborough.

Since starting at Busy Bees our son has thrived. Every morning he runs in, excited to be there and loves all of the staff (even the ones that are not in his room). He has developed in all aspects of his learning both educationally and socially and is exceeding his developmental milestones. As parents, we worried that he would get upset when we started to leave him on a morning, but soon learned that we were cramping his style, and he wanted us to leave quickly so he could get on with having lots of fun!
The staff at Busy Bees are excellent. Nothing is a problem for them. If ever our son has been a little off colour, they have been more than happy for us to call and check how he is during the sessions. They always make time to answer any questions, are approachable if we have any concerns. The management know all of the children and parents by name, and are often seen playing with the children in the rooms.
Choosing Busy Bees was the best thing that we could have done.

Not many establishments can truly say that they are an "extension" to your home...well, Busy Bees Bromborough most definitely can!!! My son attended there since he was 8 months old and only left as he started primary school in September. Being an Educational Psychologist, I had my "critical hat on" when choosing an appropriate nursery for my son. As you may know, babies who are stimulated by their environments reach developmental milestones faster; have better coordination and a more secure self-image.
I didn't have to look any further. This nursery is inviting, warm, clean, stimulating, genuine and a happy place. I am forever grateful for the level of care, stimulation, nurturing and love my son has been fortunate enough to experience during his time at Busy Bees. In fact, I have taken my son back for a couple of days during half-term and the smile on his face at the end of the day, says it all! I warmly invite you to pay them a visit soon. Enjoy it.

From the very beginning, my little girl has been extremely happy at this nursery. She has thrived in the environment that they create there and it's very much about each and every one of the kids and they are not just a number. She has become confident, friendly, fantastic at counting, reading, interaction and trying different foods that are provided for them. She also has made friendships with not just the other children but with the staff and managers as well. I have done and will continue to recommend Busy Bees - Bromborough highly as it's been the best start for my little girl in leading up to her going to school next year.
