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 4.912 for Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick is calculated as follows: ( (430 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 466 Ratings = 4.912

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick is based on 33 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). 33 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target Reached = 1

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

Busy Bees has been great for my son. He is very happy there. Staff are hard working, genuine and caring. They make a real effort with learning activities and crafts. They go the extra mile to provide us with feedback at regular parents evenings. The outdoor area is a great asset!

The twins have been going since they were 10 months old and have developed loads due to staff at the nursery. They have built some fantastic relationships and through getting to know everyone, they’re genuinely nice people and adore the kids.
It’s a massive step to trust other people with your children and we have been at ease since day 1. We have recommended them to other friends and they’re of the same opinion

My son has been attending this nursery for over a year and started when he was just 6 months. I cannot praise this nursery and their staff enough! They made the nursery transition so easy and it is lovely to chat to the staff when I drop him off and pick him up.
The nursery is always clean and tidy and the level of care the children receive is exceptional. My son had dairy and egg allergies and he was well catered for. Communication to parents is efficient and I love getting the odd photo of him having fun. Amazing nursery, couldn't be without them!

My son joined this nursery after his previous one suddenly closed. Throughout the whole process of looking and picking a new nursery Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick were very understanding, welcoming, warm, happy, approachable and went above and beyond to ensure not only that our child's welfare, safety, happiness and development was at the heart of their services but also the comfort of us parents in leaving them in a new environment.

I cannot thank them enough, as our child has settled in very quickly and is growing into a very happy, cheeky, sociable child. After the past turmoil, it's a pleasure to see from a parents perspective. One that can only be achieved with great staff with a passion for providing high-quality nursery care. Keeping the children at the heart!

Definitely, recommend Busy Bees!

Our daughter started at Busy Bees last year and is loving her time here.

They have such fun-packed days and enjoy so many activities.

The staff are fantastic and the setting is perfect.

They communicate really well with parents and we couldn’t wish for a better Nursery.

The best thing about the nursery is their dedicated staff. Right from the nursery manager who greets you with her cheerful smile to the support staff that both my sons adore. It’s like a big family, the teachers would greet every child by their name, and they somehow know how to engage with the children under their care.

Food served is excellent and nutritious, most times the kids themselves have a part in helping to prepare some baked goods.

The nursery is clean and safe, giving me a peace of mind. Love Busy Bees Ingleby Barwick!

We knew this was the right nursery for my little boy as soon as we stepped in, we’d looked around a few others and this was the most welcoming, it feels like a little family. My little boy has only been going a little while and only goes 1 day a week so is still settling in properly but he talks about the staff and the fun things he has done when he is not there, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this nursery to anyone.

The nursery is well maintained with lots of indoor and outdoor space. Staff are all lovely and friendly taking time to get to know my daughter even if they are based in a different room. They always have time to check how she is or ask what she has been up to. Occasionally the menu is a bit too “fancy” and so my daughter doesn’t enjoy as much as she would but they always try and offer alternatives which is great and gain our feedback on the menu.

Both my boys attended Busy Bees from 9 months old and have loved every minute. The oldest has now transitioned to school nursery now but did it with minimum fuss due to the fantastic foundations Busy Bees laid. My youngest who is 20 months loves going to nursery, he recently had surgery and the love and support from all the staff has been lovely. He's now back at nursery and the care plan and help with his development delay has been a massive comfort and support. I looked at many nurseries and this is the only one that I felt comfortable leaving my children at and have never regretted it 3 and a half years later.

My son attends this nursery and I couldn’t be happier. All the staff are fantastic and can’t do enough for both the parents and the children. They have brought my son on so much and helped him to engage with other children and even helped towards his weaning. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I simply could not be happier with the service, care and attention all of the staff pay to my son and I will have no hesitation at all in recommending this nursery. I will also be sending my second son once he is ready to the same nursery, my first son has come on leaps and bounds in education and confidence and truly loves going there.

My son has attended this nursery since he was 6 months old. He has grown and developed into a happy and confident little boy who loves socialising with his friends.
He is now in the Preschool room and is able to confidently spell his first name, along with learning all other skills ready for when he starts school.
I can’t thank the staff enough for their contributions and they are all a very strong part of our life!
I will continue to recommend this nursery to friends and family.

My son started attending Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick for one day a week in October. He still struggles when I attempt to leave but the staff are brilliant with him. Which makes it easier for us both.
When I ring to check up on him, the admin staff are very friendly and helpful. When collecting him on an evening I am always informed of how his day has gone including what food and drink he has consumed.
Welcoming, clean and fun environment.

Fabulously friendly, caring and genuinely cheery and helpful staff. Staff go out of their way to connect to both your child and yourself as well as taking pride in telling you what your child has been up to during the hours that they are in their care. Catering to all children’s personalities the staff are continuously looking for new ways to ensure children are given the chance the explore, learn and experiment.

All the staff have been fantastic with her helping her develop and grow over the past 2 years.
Every staff member is very informative and knowledgable in their area.
Myself and my wife have recommended this nursey to all of our friends in the area and will continue to do so in the future.

Polite, friendly, cheerful front of house staff.
The room (preschool) staff are always friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable.
Plenty of activities for the children to help them develop.
Love the recently decorated rooms and new garden layout.
The only drawback of the nursery would be that it is a bit on the small side compared to others that I have seen.

My daughter joined Busy Bees in October, I joined this nursery as 7 years prior, our eldest daughter was cared for by the assistant and nursery manager. I knew I wanted my youngest to be with the same caring natured ladies. Busy Bees has brilliant facilities and is exceptionally clean. The level of care is 5*. I cannot recommend them enough. I am so confident leaving my little girl with all of the staff in Ingleby.

My son has started coming at the end of 2017 for just two mornings a week. He settled in straight away which was a huge relief. This was down to very friendly and welcoming staff, especially my son's key worker. The centre is always clean and tidy and my son always seems to have a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack. Since my son joined he hasn't actually had any time to play outside which we were told he would as often as possible (this recently got re-done so that stopped play for a few weeks) but since then, still not outdoor play which my son would love no matter the weather.

We initially had problems finding a nursery for our daughter and were let down so came to Busy Bees at Ingleby Barwick feeling cautious and unsure. However from the initial phone call with the manager and shown around with the deputy, we were immediately put at ease. The facilities speak for themselves; the rooms are spacious, clean and have equipment/toys that I have no hesitation in allowing my daughter to play with. There is a communal area in which all the rooms open on to which contains a large seating area so you don't feel rushed at all when arriving or leaving. There is a really homely feel to it all. All the staff here are approachable, friendly and I am treated like a friend than just another parent! The communication is also excellent - from the daily diaries, regular chats with the key worker to texts and emails from the office. I could write loads more and we really couldn't recommend this nursery enough, since starting we have never looked back.

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.

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.
