The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Livingston - Quarrywood Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Livingston - Quarrywood Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 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 4.917 for Busy Bees at Livingston - Quarrywood Court is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 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 3.596 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Livingston - Quarrywood Court 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 31.2 positive Reviews (156 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 31.2 Target = 0.096

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

I was a bit apprehensive about putting my Granddaughter into daycare/nursery and researched all the nurseries in my area. I decided on Busy Bees and I'm really glad I did. The staff have been excellent with the wee one helping her settle in, they give me a full run down on how her day has been which puts my mind at rest. I'm really looking forward to seeing her grow in confidence and enjoy the nursery experience.

Both my wife and I take our Grandson twice a week to this nursery, we drop him off and on occasions pick him up. He has been attending since January 2017 and he loves it. He is only 14 months and the staff are great with him. He is developing very well and the nursery staff must take some of the credit as their input is excellent, they are highly trained and motivated. The facilities are well set out and well maintained and the children have a very mixed day when there. This includes being outside and inside and the access they have to activities.

They are very flexible and have never let us down when our circumstances change and we need extra time, it's never an issue.

Both my wife and I have extensive experience in health and social care. We can not fault the nursery or their staff in the service they deliver. They are very child focused and it always surprises me how many staff members know my Grandson when I walk through the building. Even staff from other rooms/buildings.

Our little boy started in January 2017 and loves nursery. I was a bit apprehensive about returning to work full-time and leaving him/putting him in full-time nursery, however, the staff have been amazing. My son has settled really well, loves his key workers and is developing really well for his age. Could not recommend this nursery highly enough. The staff are fantastic, very informative, helpful and he always seems extremely happy in their presence. The food is prepared fresh each day and he loves being able to feed himself already. The fees are slightly more expensive than other nurseries in the area but well worth it as I have no concerns leaving him now.

My Son loves going to Nursery. Staff are engaged with the children and take time to get to know them. Also, staff are very friendly and welcoming. Staff take time to develop a positive relationship with parents. Would recommend Busy Bees to anyone.
