Reviews

8 Busy Bees at East Kilbride has a Review Score of 8 (8.049)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at East Kilbride is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at East Kilbride in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.688 for Busy Bees at East Kilbride is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.688

  • 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 3.361 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at East Kilbride 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.111

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

Brilliant staff, very good with my son. They have worked on making him feel welcome and integrating him into the class. The only issue is the confusing invoicing system.

We have sent both of our daughters to this nursery and we wouldn't want them anywhere else. The staff are always friendly and informative. The staff make an effort at the end of each day to inform us of what has happened during our child's day. The staff work very hard and it shows with our children's development. We feel the nursery in both cases has prepared our daughters for the best start to school.

I have used Busy Bees for 7 years with three children. My children were all safe, happy, well fed, stimulated so could not ask for more. Staff I found to be warm and caring and genuinely fond of my kids. The outside space is great and woodlands experience fab. No place is perfect but my experience has been very positive and I was very sad when my last child left.

Jamie has been at Busy Bee's nursery for 10 months and absolutely loves it. The staff are all great and I feel they know him really well. There is always someone to welcome him in the morning. The staff are always very cheerfuI and I feel that I have a good relationship with them too. I feel happy leaving Jamie in their care. The food that is offered is also great. Overall I would definitely recommend this nursery.
