Reviews

8.9 Busy Bees at St David's has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.878)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at St David's is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at St David's in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 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 4.49 for Busy Bees at St David's is calculated as follows: ( (88 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.49

  • 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 4.388 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at St David's is based on 10 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 25.8 positive Reviews (129 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 25.8 Target = 0.388

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

My daughter has recently increased her hours at this nursery from 2 days full time to 5 days full time. I am so impressed with the progress she is making and the routine she is learning ready for school nursery class next year.

The staff and management have been great at helping her to settle and she loves going to nursery every day where she feels loved and cared for.

My daughter has attended the nursery from age 7 months and is still in attendance now. The staff really do treat them like their own and the children are happy, safe and secure. I have always been kept well informed of her progress and the transitions between different rooms and staff have always been smooth. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone in the local area.

My son loves going to nursery but I would prefer more help on assisting him, in particular in his welsh. I was brought up outside the UK so have no knowledge of Welsh and would like to help/understand for future reference.

My daughter really enjoys going to nursery. She loves the activities and has developed a close bond with all the staff.
The outdoor space is fabulous, with free flow access throughout the day. More outdoor resources would support a number of children in the room. All staff throughout the nursery are welcoming and very caring.

My daughter has attended the nursery since she was 9 months old. At every stage I have been very impressed by the love, care and attention she has been shown. As a result, she has grown up confident, independent and has gained the necessary skills to aid a smooth transition to primary school. The staff are professional, helpful, knowledgeable and caring. I cannot praise them, enough.

Staff always welcome my child each morning with smiles and a friendly approach. This is important to me as my daughter is sensitive and takes a while to relax and be at ease.
However, my daughter has grown in confidence since attending here from 12 months old.
She is now 3 and a half years and loves to talk about her day and activities she participated in.
She knows all her colours, shapes and can count to 20 which has well prepared her for attending nursery school in September. Thank you Busy Bees, I definitely would highly recommend you to friends and family.

Busy Bees is a fantastic nursery. The manager runs a tight ship and is always accommodating should I need her. The staff are friendly and genuinely care for the children. My daughters have both loved it and I have recommended to friends. Most importantly my daughters come out with smiles on their faces.

My son enjoyed his time here in the nursery. He attended Busy Bees for 4 years as he started when he was only five months old. The staff treated him as an individual and always showed care and compassion towards him.

Busy Bees have been wonderful so far. The staff are really friendly and helpful and my son really seems to enjoy himself. They are always doing fun activities with him like painting and crafts. They also teach him new things. I feel really reassured that he is such good hands while I am at work. I am really grateful for all their hard work. Fantastic, couldn't recommend enough.
