Reviews

9 Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park has a Review Score of 9 (9.044)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.534 for Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.534

  • 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 4.51 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park 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 19.6 positive Reviews (98 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 19.6 Target = 0.510

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

The nursery has been great for my little boy who is only just turning one/ He enjoys going to nursery and the girls are great with him.

One thing that would be better is getting a daily diary more regularly as we have only had this once.

My son attends nursery on a full-time basis and always seems excited to go in each morning. The food provided is freshly made, healthy and my son likes to get extra helpings so I'm pleased to see him enjoying his food. The premises are always clean and there are loads of equipment for children to play with. The staff including management are outstanding and every day at pick up I get a detailed narration of how my son has been; including naps, what activities he is engaged in and how he has been overall. The care that is provided is exceptional and seeing my son be happy in the nursery makes me very happy.

Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park have been the most supportive nursery in all aspects and not just with my child's development. The staff have always spent the time to explain what has happened throughout the day and any upcoming events. Never had any worries/concern of my child's wellbeing - amazing nursery.

The care that the staff at Busy Bees (Edinburgh Park) have shown our son has always been above and beyond. They took the time to get to know him and understand what motivates him. The progress we have seen since he joined them is huge. He is happy, learning, eating healthy foods and loving being with his peers.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery to anyone.

This is a lovely central nursery with great staff and excellent food.
It is good value for money as nappies and all meals are included in the price. All meals are lovingly cooked/prepared fresh on site every day.
This as well as the generous opening hours, 7.30 am to 6 pm, are ideally suited for working parents.
The nursery lacks a bit in outside space but has a lovely inside atrium space with play equipment.
Overall a good, clean, nurturing space for kids and loved by both my children.

I am very pleased with the care being provided to my son from this nursery. They are taking care of his diet (as he is a vegetarian). I see a lot of improvement from the beginning til now. It is good and overall staff are really friendly and efficient. Impressed with the activities they do with the kids and timings are flexible. Overall, I'm a happy parent to sent my kid to Busy Bees at Edinburgh Park and highly recommend to friends.

We brought our daughter to the nursery 3 months ago from another 'award winning' nursery where she was labelled autistic with no evidence and with a bad habit of biting when stressed. The Busy Bees staff and management are simply amazing. They are professionals but at the same time show much-needed empathy. The nursery setting is open space, clean and friendly; our daughter is a different child now. She has learnt how to express herself better, she is more calm, confident and we can see that she feels secure. She has found people who actually care for her. Different strategies have been put in place to help her mitigate the biting and the staff takes its time to help her and accommodate all her needs and ours. We feel lucky to have this kind of service and have a peace of mind knowing our daughter is with good and professional people. Thank you.
