Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.916 for Busy Bees at Hull is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Hull 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.500

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

Both of my girls have attended this nursery and the care they offer is excellent and both girls have easily achieved the level they are supposed to for starting school. They have their own chef and I am jealous of the food they have and often run family events. Excellent nursery for anyone looking for one.

My daughter started this nursery in 2012 in babies and went right through to pre school. Never had any issues, if you wanted something doing specifically for your child, it was done the way you asked. My son now attends this nursery, has done since 2016 and again no issues. The staff are brilliant, fulfilling the needs of each child. The nursery has lots of different activities for the children to choose from on a daily basis.

I love this nursery. My son is so happy there and coming in leaps and bounds. Nothing is too much trouble for them and everyone is enthusiastic and lovely. Love it when he comes home with pieces of artwork or a card he's made, there are lots of thoughtful little touches like this!

My daughter started at Busy Bees at Hull in the baby room and is now in pre-school. Every single member of staff has been nothing but caring, supportive, friendly & trustworthy. I always have and still now feel I am leaving my daughter in good hands and never worry about her safety or well-being. The staff clearly care about each child and have great bonds with them.
Due to my work patterns and irregular shifts the manager & senior staff always try to accommodate and have never had issues with my booking pattern.
The nursery has great rooms for development and is always changing the boards/walls. The rooms are bright & welcoming. There are always great activities set out each day for the children to meet their development. When collecting my daughter at lunch time I noticed how good the routine was, the children were all well behaved whilst eating. The menu and snacks are always very healthy and my daughter enjoys the food cooked fresh daily.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. They take a genuine interest in all the children and always know their current likes/dislikes/interests etc. My twins started Busy Bees Hull just before they turned one and settled in very quickly as the staff made a real effort to welcome them and make them feel comfortable. They are always happy to go to nursery and always smiling and playing nicely when we pick them up. I have also seen big leaps in their development in recent months, which I'm sure attending nursery has helped with.
The menu is varied and the staff are more than happy make adjustments to cater for individual tastes and needs. My twins seem to really enjoy the food they are given and I am confident that nursery provides them with a balanced diet.
I love to see photos of the twins engaged in nursery activities and enjoy reading their diary at the end of each day so I can see what they have been doing.

My Daughter has been attending the nursery for almost a year now, she loves it !!!!! She started before she was 1 and she was still crawling, the staff ensured her safety and planned activities to suit her needs. She is currently in the baby room and has great relationships with staff and children, she is learning new things every day.
The staff are always helpful and have been there for me to ask advice. Each day a diary is written where I am told what she has done, what she has eaten etc... Which I think is great. The meals are planned by a chef and the staff schedule activities during the day, so every day is different and fun. I frequently get shown photos and get to take pictures and paintings home. My daughter always wants to stay and play on a night when I collect her and I regularly stay in a morning and an evening to join in and play with her and her friends.

My son has been attending Busy Bees in Hull for two years now, I can honestly say I couldn't recommend a better day nursery.
The nursery manager is very helpful, understanding and friendly.
I work in retail and my work pattern can change with really short notice and if she can, the manager will try to accommodate me if she and the nursery are able to.
The play workers are fab, really polite, friendly, easy to chat too and my boy loves them.
My son loves attending nursery but on the days he is feeling really clingy to myself or my husband they help out to bring him round with toys books etc so he goes without been upset.
I would recommend this nursery to anyone wanting to leave their child knowing they are well looked after and also have a structured learning and regular updates on how your child is progressing.
The food and menu at Busy Bees has also a fantastic wide range of meals and the menu is seasonal.
