Reviews

9.2 Busy Bees in Northwich has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.153)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Northwich is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Northwich in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 7 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 4.832 for Busy Bees in Northwich is calculated as follows: ( (120 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.832

  • 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 4.321 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Northwich is based on 7 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 21.8 positive Reviews (109 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 21.8 Target = 0.321

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

My daughter attends Busy Bees and she loves going and seeing the ladies and her friends. The staff go the extra mile to make sure the children are safe, secure and happy. The nursery has lovely resources that support the children's learning. I am kept well informed and key moments are shared with me. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a nursery in this area.

Our son joined in the summer of 2014 in the baby room. We were both impressed with the facilities and the staff when we went for our ‘tour’ and we are so happy with our decision. From the very first bit of paperwork, his settling in visits and then his first day, the process was easy, personal and painless. My sons ‘nursery mummy’s’ are fantastic and I really feel they care about his wellbeing and development. He is now in the pre-school room and throughout all the different stages/rooms we have been delighted with the things he does and the experiences he has each day. He has made some great friends and adores all the staff. Some of the activities he takes part in I would never think of doing at home. His confidence, speech and appetite are all fab and much of this is down to Busy Bees. His love of books/stories is increasing week on week. The recent refurb has been great and the facilities look just fantastic. Our second little boy joined in August 2016 and he is thriving too.

Our daughter has been attending Busy Bees in Northwich since September 2016. The staff are always friendly and helpful. When our little girl goes, she is sometimes a little shy and her key Carer and other staff members always make an effort to come over and talk to her, they comfort her and give her a hug to try to settle her down. When she is like this they either call to reassure me that she is ok or I ring to check on her and they always reassure me when she is ok and are always happy to speak to me. When I go to collect her they always provide me with a good account of what she has done, how she has been and seem to have a good feel of her general development. She is a little temperamental with her eating and they always try to encourage her with his. Overall we are very happy with our choice of nursery, our daughter always talks about it, her key worker and other staff members positively and with great affection. We would and have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

Our granddaughter had delayed development in a number of areas, especially communication when she started Busy Bees just a few months ago. The team have really worked hard to engage her and build her confidence and the difference is transformational.
What a contrast to her previous nursery. She has really come out of herself, will initiate conversation and games now and is chatting confidently. I cannot overstate the fabulous work, the care and attention which has given our granddaughter such a boost. This is a truly excellent centre of care, well managed and run with dedicated, lovely staff. Thank you.

My daughter has been attending the nursery since she was 6 months old and she is just turning three. So I think that says a lot about the nursery. She absolutely loves going. The staff are all really friendly and happy to help with any questions. The staff have an interest in her personal life, like talking about her family and interests outside of the nursery. They do all sorts of fun learning during the day. We can not believe how well she has developed over the years compared to other children that go to a different nursery. I give great credit to the chef she takes a personal interest in what the children eat which is fantastic. We can take our daughter anywhere and she will sit good and eat anything. I would definitely recommend Busy Bees Nursery to anyone.

My son is only 1 yr old and attends Busy Bees nursery in Northwich. It was daunting for my wife and me to place our 1-year-old into the nursery - however, from the first moment, we felt instantly comfortable at Busy Bees. We were given a substantial tour / overview by the manager and security was robust and gave us peace of mind. We received a good feeling from the staff, who were all happy to answer our questions. It took him most of August to settle however the staff were patient and supportive during this period and very reassuring to my wife and I. Three nursery nurses, in particular, have been absolutely fantastic - he loves seeing them each day. September was his 1st fully integrated month and his development during in period is incredible - he has generally learnt and developed so much during his time at Busy Bees. He is interactive and trying a whole range of foods. He had a minor bump in September and the process followed was also impressive - we were instantly contacted, informed and generally we felt very assured and impressed with the professionalism and transparency showed. I feel well informed about his daily activities and feel he's in a comfortable, safe and caring environment. The price is reasonable considering the excellent facilities and amount of fresh and diverse food options - in particular, and the finance manager at Busy Bees is excellent; transparent and well-structured. We're both very pleased with Busy Bees and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to any parent.

My son has attended Busy Bees in Northwich since he was 4 and half months old. Not an easy decision for a mom, however, the staff made me and my little one feel so at home and welcome it made what should have been a difficult experience easy. Since commencing the development in my son is phenomenal which is testimony to the care and attention given to him. He enjoys every day so much so he has days where he wants to stay and not come home. The staff are caring, considerate and professional. They have a supportive approach and try to follow the parent's leads where possible to maintain consistency. When issues do arise (very seldom) it is dealt with promptly and professionally. Very happy mommy.

My son has been at the nursery for 3 years, prior to that my daughter attended. I've always found the nursery to exceed my expectations in all areas - staff, care, development, fun, food and facilities!

The children are always smiling, I am happy to drop him off each morning knowing that he'll have a great day, lots of adventures and some yummy food!

His development in language, friendship and values are exactly what I am looking for.

Thank you to the team!

Busy Bees in Northwich fosters a wonderful atmosphere which you sense as soon as you walk in. My two year old runs excitedly down to the toddler room every time we arrive and that speaks for itself. The staff are very friendly but professional too; they make it their business to get to know your child and any question you may have, they will answer willingly. We all want the very best for our children; Busy Bees Northwich wants that for your child too. My daughter loves this nursery and I have seen a real development in her, both socially and emotionally as a result of the environment, she is in. The facilities are impressive and the early year's programme ensures that your child will be prepared and ready for the transition to school. Busy Bees in Northwich was my first choice of nursery and in my opinion, it was definitely the best choice too.
