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 4.917 for Busy Bees at Glenrothes is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.35 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Glenrothes is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.100

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

My son really enjoys coming to nursery. He has lots of friends and loves doing all the different activities they do. I think the nursery has a great outdoor space which is currently being done up. The staff are really good with my son and always make him feel welcome. I also feel my son has learnt so much while at the nursery.

Very nice staff and services. A lovely environment for the children. My granddaughter comes along three mornings a week and looks forward to it. They do lots of activities in each room and have outdoor activities in the play areas, take them for walks into the woods to collect leaves and branches etc.

They have little tables for all the children to sit together to eat breakfast in the room. I find it very good for the children to interact with each other and make it a sociable event. Then lunch times are in the dining hall. They have a starter and then a main course, or a main course then a dessert of some sort. My granddaughter loves the variety and always has extras! which she doesn't do at home.

You are always given an update every day when you collect the children on their day what they have been doing activity wise and their meals.
I have had three grandchildren come through Busy Bees, and every one has enjoyed the nursery and definitely benefited from coming here.

My daughter attended the nursery and has come on so much. She will be definitely returning to this nursery in near future. The staff and management are very approachable and of there was I problem I feel it will have been resolved very quickly. I also love how the staff know all the children so well within her room.

Being the single parent of a child with additional needs is difficult at best. My son attends the nursery full time and has done since he was 9 months old - and he loves it! The nursery staff are so supportive, not only to my son but me also. Friendly, caring and most importantly patient staff interact with all of the children in a variety of ways - from outdoor play to creative play to singing and dancing - the list is endless. Modern and clean facilities with lots of natural light and secure outdoor space, there really was no doubt that my son would flourish in this environment. Highly recommended!

Staff are amazing. I feel very confident leaving my child in their care. I have never had a problem in the nursery but if I did, I feel that the issue would be resolved and the staff and manager are very approachable.
