Reviews

9.2 Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.222)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.924 for Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick is calculated as follows: ( (134 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.924

  • 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 4.298 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.298

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

Fantastic nursery with very approachable and friendly staff. It's a very clean nursery and as a parent, I always feel well informed of how my child's day has gone. I really like that when I collect my child from the nursery, that the staff in his room let me know how he has eaten and what activities he has been doing that day. I am also very impressed with the food that my child eats when he's at Busy Bees. It's all really nutritional and changes often so there's plenty of variety and different meals for him to explore. The management team are also fantastic and if ever there's a problem or an issue arises they are always there to help and very approachable.

My daughter has been with Busy Bees since she was 10 months old, and right from the start, the improvement with her development was phenomenal.
The staff in the various rooms are caring and attentive but also fantastic at guiding her through developmental milestones with such creativity and efficiency that they've made learning fun for her, she doesn't even realise she's doing it! She literally can't wait to get to nursery / pre-school and talks about her carers as her friends. I know she'll be sad to leave them when she moves on at the end of August.
The ladies in the office too are so helpful and flexible for both our daughter and us, they really make you feel part of the Busy Bees family.
She's truly been given a great start to life and a great basis for her future learning - we can't thank the team there enough.

We could not be happier with Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick. Both of my children have been extremely happy there and we have strongly felt that the staff genuinely care for the children. I have always felt that my children are completely safe and happy there. The staff are lovely, understanding and accommodating. The premises are also spotless, with a lovely outdoor play area and plenty of activities inside and outside. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery to others.

The staff at busy bees are both conscientious and caring. I always feel safe in the knowledge that my little one is being looked after well, with age/development appropriate toys games and activities, nutritiously planned meals and lots of outside space to play. Highly recommended.

Staff at Busy Bees, namely the manager, assistant manager the qualified early years educators and assistant room managers have all been fantastic with my son. He was a clingy child when he first started and they all went out of their way to make sure his nursery days are happy, fun and comfortable. I put 100% trust in them.

My son has attended Busy Bees since he was 5 months old and I returned to work full time. I needed to find a nursery where I trusted the staff 100%, after all, I was leaving my child in their care for eight hours at a time. Busy Bees had a certain rapport with me from the moment I took my first foot in the door so I knew it was the right place for me and my son.
From day one, the staff have been brilliant, they are very welcoming, friendly and most importantly have great interaction with my son and all the other children. The standards of health and safety are excellent and the facilities are always clean. They deal with any concerns confidentially and offer advice when needed.
The management and staff offer a wider range of activities to keep children engaged and develop them, my son loves it whether it be numbers, singing, arts and crafts there is always something different happening.
We will be sad to leave the nursery next year when my son starts school and I know he will miss it

I have always found the nursery to offer a very welcoming atmosphere and have never been made to feel that anything is any trouble. The management staff have a friendly 'door always open' approach and listened and offered advice when I needed to discuss my daughter's behaviour (otherwise known as the terrible twos!). My son now attends 2 days per week and we have noticed positive social development in the short time that he has been attending and his key worker sends activities home for us to work on. The environment that the children play in is clean and looked after. I would have no hesitation recommending Busy Bees Ingleby Barwick and would like to thank Kelly and team for the work they put into creating the children's work files. I was impressed with the pre-school file I was given for my daughter.

Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick is an excellent nursery my daughter attended for 10 months old until she left at 3, her social interaction came in leaps and bounds while she was there. Her school nursery commends them for the good work they have done in assisting her to be above her age range. My son who is 15 months is there too and has been from 6 months old and he loves it.
The staff are amazing and make sure children's needs are put first. Management are really approachable and friendly. My children love all the staff and I know my daughter misses them all so much.
Thanks for being a fab nursery.

As a former nursery nurse, myself I have high expectations of what I look for in a nursery for my child and I couldn't recommend busy bees at Ingleby Barwick enough. The staff and management have been more than helpful with my child's transition into the nursery and the care and support my child has received has been second to none. My child is gaining confidence and has come on leaps and bounds since starting earlier this year.
