Reviews

8.2 Busy Bees at Chorley NHS has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.229)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Chorley NHS is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Chorley NHS in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.479 for Busy Bees at Chorley NHS is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.479

  • 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 3.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Chorley NHS 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.250

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

My child is happy at nursery and I feel confident that he is safe there. These are the two most important factors in any childcare. I would like to see more organised learning through play activities linked to education in pre-school.

I love how friendly all the staff are, certain staff members chat to me when I drop my two children off. I like this because I get to know what kind of person is taking care of my children. I have changed times and days because of college and the nursery accommodated this and are very flexible. I also love that I get a discount for having two children in the nursery, it keeps cost down. I would definitely rate Busy Bees NHS.

I have two children who attend Busy Bees at Chorley NHS, one in babies and another in preschool. Both my children are so happy to go in and I'm asked every morning if it's a nursery day! The staff are so welcoming and really go that extra mile for both my children. I'm always given pictures and shown photos of the fun they have been having and get a great handover at the end of the day so I'm aware of how much they haven eaten, any nappies and bottles and any other information from the day. I would recommend this nursery to everyone.
