7.9 Busy Bees at Lytham has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.896)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Lytham 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Lytham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.771 for Busy Bees at Lytham is calculated as follows: ( (37 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.771

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Lytham is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

  • 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 Lytham

  • Mother of Child
    4

Both of my children have attended Busy Bees. My son prior to starting school and my daughter currently. My daughter loves her nursery. She's happy to attend every day and the staff are always welcoming and happy to greet her. The facilities are great, excellent outdoor facilities. The food is varied and nursery have been great about my daughter's dietary requirements - I'm pretty sure she eats better than I do! I feel included even though I'm not there I get a full debrief about what's she eaten and what she's done in the day so I can ask her about it on the way home. I would have absolutely no problem recommending this nursery to anyone.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since September 2015 and she has been happy every day she has been in and always talks about the different activities that have been set out in the rooms. The planning is easy to follow for the parents and we are involved with the planning through home observations which is helpful for my husband who can't always attend drop off and pick up. All the staff and managers are always willing to answer any questions and queries. The menus provided are very healthy and the chef is very willing to accommodate for different allergies which is a big help for us as my child has a couple of allergies herself.

During the time my children have been at the nursery I have found the staff very friendly and the management team very professional.
They do lots of activities and I would highly recommend them.
I was especially taken by the large outdoor area they have for the children.

My son has been at Lytham Busy Bees Nursery since August 2016.

The staff are very friendly and keep me updated with what he's been doing during the day. He has settled in very well and is very happy to go in and play (especially outside)

I would highly recommend this nursery.
