Reviews

6.5 Busy Bees at Bamber Bridge has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.515)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Bamber Bridge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Bamber Bridge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 5 for Busy Bees at Bamber Bridge is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5

  • 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 1.515 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Bamber Bridge is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 34 positive Reviews (170 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 34 Target = 0.029 , then divided by 2 = 0.015

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

Reviewer Connection to Busy Bees at Bamber Bridge

  • Mother of Child
    1

My children have been cared for by Busy Bees Bamber Bridge since 2007.
My eldest child developed into a confident, social little girl. She loves going back to visit all the staff members who cared for her all those years ago.
8 years later when my son was born, I did not hesitate to return to Busy Bees Bamber Bridge as his Early Year care provider.
The staff - ranging from the Apprentice to the Manager are all lovely, tolerant individuals, who focus on each child's personality and embrace their characters in a beautiful manner. The children always have happy, smiley faces and you can see that they are all ever so happy to be there.
On numerous occasions, I have witnessed children refusing to go home - they are just having too much fun...This is, after all, their "home from home".
I cannot recommend this nursery enough, you will not be disappointed and your child will have life long memories of a very special time in their life.
