The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for The Tunbridge Wells Nursery & Montessori Pre-School 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Tunbridge Wells Nursery & Montessori Pre-School 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 4.676 for The Tunbridge Wells Nursery & Montessori Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (52 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.676

  • 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 3.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Tunbridge Wells Nursery & Montessori Pre-School 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.167

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

We love Busy Bee's Tunbridge Wells and will really miss the team when our little one moves on to primary school.
The nursery has looked after our daughter from 6 months, seen her all the way through the baby room, the 2-3 room and the pre-school room. They have managed each transition really well, discussing everything in advance so that we were happy. They have discussed and managed whatever we may have had concerns out, whether it be separation anxiety, feeding, nappy, medications, potty training etc.
They have tracked her progress, discussing her development at twice yearly parents evenings.
We have never regretted our decision to place our little one at Busy Bee's, we trust the team to look after her welfare and teach her, our daughter loves going to nursery 3 days a week, she has made friends there, with the other kids as much as the carers.
We would and do recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a safe and friendly nursery for their child.

My husband and I were first attracted to the nursery because of the location and the facilities on offer. The opening hours are also perfect to minimise the stress of delayed trains and the all inclusive package certainly makes it easier for the drop offs in the morning. However, it is the dedication of the staff at Busy Bees who have worked hard to help my son adjust and settle at the nursery. Initially, he had a tough couple of weeks, not wanting to eat and being very upset when I dropped him off. It was a very hard time for the whole family. However, the staff worked hard to make him feel comfortable and confident. He seems to be thriving there now and is proud to show me his new toys and friends when I go to collect him. This is all down to the attitude of his key worker and the staff at the nursery.

This nursery has supported my twins immensely and due to this, they have thrived. Their language has developed well and they have always treated them as individuals which considering I have identical girls this is fantastic. As a parent, I have always felt welcome at the nursery and have been able to talk to staff about anything to do with their development at both nursery and home and received great advice. Things that work at the nursery have now been incorporated at home and work well so for that I can only thank the staff. Recommend to anyone who wants to have the support for both parent and child, this is the nursery for you.

The Tunbridge Wells Nursery and Montessori Preschool is a fantastic nursery. My son loves coming to nursery every day and he talks about the staff and all his friends whilst he is at home. He has been at the nursery since he was three months old and he has developed into such a character with his speech being amazing! I am so happy how sociable he is and I believe this is because he has been at the nursery.

My son really enjoys the time he spends at The Tunbridge Wells Nursery. He is well cared for and his day is filled with activities to keep him involved and help him to learn. The staff look after him very well and he has formed good relationships with the nannies. The staff are very informative when I collect my son and I feel they relate well to him. My son has taken part in extra music sessions at the nursery and he has received home learning activities to support his learning.

This is a lovely environment for our child. He always runs in, welcomed by all the staff. The staff know all the children, even if they are in a different room. There always seems to be lots going on and there is good feedback at the end of each day.
