Reviews

7.7 Busy Bees at Cardiff Gate has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.700)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Cardiff Gate is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Cardiff Gate in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.05 for Busy Bees at Cardiff Gate is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.05

  • 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 3.65 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Cardiff Gate is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.150

  • 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 attended the nursery since she was 10 months old. The staff have always been caring and done above and beyond to help her settle into the rooms as she's moved up. The staff and her key workers have supported her speech and encouraged it when needed. My daughter looks forward to coming to nursery as they always have a range of activities on offer for her.

My daughter loves coming to nursery and has formed great relationships with the staff and children. My daughter has learnt a great deal the last couple of months.
My eldest daughter has also attended the nursery and loved coming here and often asks to come back. She has very fond memories of her time at Busy Bees.

Busy Bees have been friendly and flexible but primarily have taken great care of our daughter. Without exception, staff have been polite, attentive and caring and our daughter clearly enjoys her time at nursery and has become very fond of a number of the Busy Bees team. I'd have no hesitation in recommending.

Friendly staff, nice environment and lots of activities for the children. Very helpful finance lady.
Room allocation can be sometimes confusing.
Food - lots of different meals/choice, would like more support in boys helping to eat.
Lovely imagination areas, my boys particularly like the garden area.
Excellent in making contact with us regarding one of our child's current illness and making others aware.
