Reviews

7.6 Busy Bees in Cardiff has a Review Score of 7.6 (7.569)

The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees in Cardiff 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees in Cardiff in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.493 for Busy Bees in Cardiff is calculated as follows: ( (43 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.493

  • 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 3.076 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees in Cardiff is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.076

  • 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 Cardiff

  • Mother of Child

My daughter has attended Busy Bees since 8-months-old. The staff were very supportive with the transition from home to nursery life for both me and my daughter. My daughter thoroughly enjoys coming to nursery and has settled really well, and made great bonds with both the staff and children. For the nursery to improve, I would think sending children's work home more frequently would be only a positive contribution to incorporate nursery to home life.

My experience of the nursery for the past three years as a parent has been good. My child is always coming home with things he has made and tells me what he has done in the nursery. The nursery is good and I get told about events that are going on. I like the fact that in all-weathers the children get wrapped up and are provided with umbrellas to go outdoors.

My son is here and my other two children went here and I absolutely love the nursery and staff and have found them to be fantastic and the staff turnover is very low which shows how good a place to work it is as they stay and are very consistent.

Our son has now been with Busy Bees for eight months. From the day we went to visit we knew this was the place for us. The atmosphere is very relaxed but at the same time all the staff are very aware of things going on around them. Our son absolutely loves going there to play and interact with other children.Security is paramount too.
Our son has achieved so much since going to Busy Bees we can't thank them enough.

From the outset, I have been extremely pleased with the service and care offered by the nursery. My daughter found it difficult to settle at the nursery due to the strong bond she had with me but the nursery did everything they could to accommodate us and make the experience as stress-free as possible.

Safe to say that 2 years later I have a very confident 3 year old who has developed and learnt so much from being in the nursery environment (something she wouldn't gain from being in the home environment!) The staff have given her the love and security that she has required from day one along with all the structure and education you could want your little child to have in getting them ready to take on the big world of school. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery!
