Reviews

8.8 Busy Bees in Guiseley has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.761)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Guiseley 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Guiseley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.786 for Busy Bees in Guiseley is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.786

  • 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 3.975 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Guiseley is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0.225

  • 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 in Guiseley

  • Mother of Child
    7

I currently have two children attending this nursery, I am really pleased with the care that they receive and the activities that they have available to them. Both children love going to nursery and have a special bond with their key contact, I feel that the staff really take an interest in my children's like and dislikes and provide a nurturing environment to explore activities that they are less comfortable with. Both of my children have allergies/intolerances to certain food and staff have gone out of their way to find alternatives so that my children haven't felt any different to their classmates and so they have had a broad range of dietary options.

I would recommend the nursery, I couldn't be happier with the environment as a whole. The outstanding Ofsted rating truly reflects the efforts that all members of staff make to provide the best environment for each child to develop and grow at their own pace.

My son has attended this nursery for almost 2 years now. During this time he has been extremely well looked after. The staff helped him settle in well and transition between different rooms. His key worker knows him very well, as do other staff in the setting. The staff are very friendly and approachable, including the management. The food offered is varied and healthy. My son will be sad to leave nursery in August to move to school and I will have no hesitation in sending my youngest son to this nursery when the time comes.

My little boy has attended Busy Bees in Guiseley since Sept 2015 and I couldn't be happier with the quality of care he receives. The consistent work that is put in from management and staff to ensure he is not only enjoying himself but meeting all milestones for his age through exciting and engaging activities is great!
The meals are highly rated and nutritional giving opportunities to try lots of different foods, my son loves telling me about his meals even if he doesn't always like it.
My Son is always so happy and excited to be at nursery and talks about his experiences lots whether it be activities or staff!!
Definitely recommended from us!!

I could not have picked a better nursery when I chose this one for my son. The management team and all the staff are absolutely fantastic and they cannot do enough for you.
They were all extremely supportive when I sadly lost my partner last year and their tremendous support and care helped me and my son get through a very difficult time in our lives and I cannot thank all the staff enough for that.
My son absolutely loves going to nursery and every day he is learning something new and having so much fun along the way....and the meals that they provide for the children are absolutely scrumptious!!!!
I would highly recommend this nursery to all parents who are looking for a nursery for their child.

This nursery has provided great care for my daughter and helped her through the milestones for her age. She enjoys coming to nursery and runs into the nursery every day without any fail. They have encouraged her constantly with her development and this is showing through everything she does at home and nursery.

My little boy attended the nursery setting from Sept 2015 to July 2016 in the pre-school room. He absolutely loved his time at the nursery made lots of friends and took part in some brilliant activities and particularly enjoyed taking part in the preschool project which was a great way to introduce him to the routines and expectations of school life.
He settled in really well and this was all thanks to the attentive and caring staff not only in the pre-school room but across the whole nursery.
At home we struggled to get him to eat a variety of different food groups but, thanks to the chef at the nursery who prepared fantastic and exciting meals for all the children he thoroughly enjoyed eating the meals that were prepared for him and his nursery friends.
I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a nursery place.

The nursery hosts and enthusiastically offers a smooth, fantastic pre-school project in order to support and prepare the children for their transition to school. The range of activities was engaging and exciting and I loved how this was evidenced for each child in their own individual workbook. The nursery has been amazing for my little one and he has truly loved his time here.
The staff are dedicated and have strong relationships with the their key groups and families.
