The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for The Egham Nursery & Pre-School Academy 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 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Egham Nursery & Pre-School Academy in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 12 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 The Egham Nursery & Pre-School Academy is calculated as follows: ( (176 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 192 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 4.6 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Egham Nursery & Pre-School Academy is based on 12 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.600

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

I looked at lots of nurseries when choosing where to send my son but I knew as soon as I visited, that this was where I would send him and we've been so happy with the decision.

My son is very settled and happy at the nursery. He started in the baby room and is now in 2-3. The staff are what makes this nursery, all very friendly and professional. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!

My son transferred to the Egham Nursery (from a different nursery) when he was a year old. It took him just a few days to settle, and even though he would sometimes cry when he was dropped off, he was always happy when he was picked up. For me, that was the biggest sign that he was well looked after.
Since then he has grown in confidence and has learnt many new skills and activities. The staff have been supportive throughout, and have always been flexible and accommodating. For example, we were on holiday around the time my son was due to transfer to a new class, but in order to maintain stability and ensure he was ready, he had a much longer transition period and he only moved when he was fully settled. The nursery is very well equipped with a variety of toys and activities and the outdoor play area is spacious and the children are always well supervised. I have already recommended this nursery to friends and thank all the staff and management for everything they do for the children.

Busy Bees has been a truly lovely experience for our children. Our daughter and son started at a very young age and have loved it from day one. The staff are wonderful with the children and we never have a worry about the care our children are in.

From the minute you walk in the staff are so upbeat and happy. They really care about the children and their needs. We absolutely love it.

Couldn't recommend this Nursery anymore, our little boy has been coming here since he was 8/9months old and absolutely loves every day that he spends there! We still take him to this nursery even after moving to Farnborough! Everyone from Management to all staff are incredible and so welcoming and are willing to do anything to help.

My son joined The Egham Nursery & Pre-School Academy at 27 months and he has now progressed into the Pre-school. I am very happy that we chose this nursery as it offers a safe, clean, welcoming, friendly and caring environment for him to learn and play. The rooms are large and full of quality resources and there is a lovely garden filled with bikes and scooters and other toys. My son has communication difficulties and the staff have been very supportive with this issue as we work together to try to progress his speech and development. We also have access to a health visitor, hairdresser and a sports club while at nursery; my son really enjoys his time here and I'm confident that he is well cared for. I have recommended this nursery to friends and would highly recommend it to others too.

My daughter started at The Egham Nursery & Pre-School Academy in March 2017. It was the first time she was going to be attending a nursery setting, and this one stood out from the rest. All the staff are really friendly and the bonds they have with the children are really comforting as a parent. The nursery manager is lovely. She is really involved with the rooms and the children, and always approachable for any queries. My daughter now attends full time, but with the I-connect, I can see what she’s up to through the day and I love seeing the photos of activities she’s been doing. Another important thing for me is the consistency of the staff, and this is also comforting for my daughter to see the same faces every day. I would recommend this nursery to all friends and family and have been really happy with the care my daughter has received. A big thank you to all the lovely ladies and man who look after her, especially her key workers.

The Egham Nursery was the best decision I made for my daughter.
I moved her to this nursery just before her first birthday and her development has been unbelievable.
The staff are incredibly friendly and will go out of their way to care for each and every child. Any member of staff that I speak to knows my daughter and what she is working towards.
I feel very confident in leaving my daughter at Nursery and she even calls it the “party”.
I would highly recommend this nursery and pre-school to anybody. The activities my daughter gets involved in are way beyond anything that I could offer at home - I am truly grateful for all they do.

I have loved everything about Busy Bees Egham. I loved the vibe that the manageress radiated when we entered nursery for the first time and it has never changed. This was so reassuring especially when you are leaving behind your nine-month-old, away from you for the first time. Our little girl has become independent and learnt quickly. The simple fact that she loves it when her Daddy drops her off in the nursery, is the clue she is taken care of well. We have been kept informed of the smallest of the bumps she ever got, which assures us that nursery is really transparent. I am truly indebted to each of her carers. They are really amazing! How else can you explain a child being so happy without her mother and away from her home?

I would recommend Busy Bees to each and every parent who needs a safe haven for their precious ones. God bless you all for nurturing the little souls.

Myself and my partner are very happy with the care and support our 2 children receive from their nursery - all staff are well trained and provide a calming, interactive and caring environment that both of our children have blossomed in. We highly recommend this nursery.

I am so happy that we chose this nursery for our daughter. She started here at 8 months old in preparation for me going back to work. All the staff were amazing from the start, so welcoming and really put my mind at ease, as I was so nervous about leaving her. They have such a great routine there, so many toys and activities, a lovely outdoor play area - I can really see how much my daughter is developing whilst at this nursery. She has developed a bond with her key worker which is lovely to see, and at the end of each day, I hear a detailed account of what she has done that day which I really like. I also like that they take pictures and write notes that myself and my husband can access in the day on I-connect. You do really feel like they care about your child, all the staff know her name and the nursery manager always knows what she has been up to that day. I would definitely recommend this nursery, thank you for providing such a safe and happy environment for my daughter.

What a fabulous place this is. My two year old and nine-month-old started here in September 2016. The staff are fantastic - I feel so reassured every morning by their genuine and warm welcomes. Each evening I get a detailed report of what they have been up to. Each child has developed a strong bond with their key person. The rooms are perfectly kitted out with lots of toys and space too. Also delighted with how each of my children have developed since being there. Would highly recommend this nursery for peace of mind that your little ones are being looked after by staff who really care about them. Well done guys!

My daughter has attended Busy Bees at Egham since January 2016, from the age of 6 months. Obviously leaving her every day, to return to work, was a very hard decision but I feel very lucky that I managed to find a nursery which I believe provides her with a home from home environment. All the staff are very friendly and make a fuss of each child when they arrive in the morning. My daughter's key worker keeps me updated on her daily activities as well as providing development assessments at key milestones. I am very happy with Busy Bees at Egham nursery and by the smile on my daughter's face when we arrive in the morning’s, I know she is too.

My son has been attending Busy Bees at Egham since February 2016. He found it very hard to settle into nursery as we had just moved house and moved our son from his previous nursery that he had been attending for 3 years. All of the staff at Busy Bees at Egham are very supportive, reassuring and cater to his needs. They take photos on i-connect for me and my husband to see him taking part in activities and give me detailed feedback at the end of every day of what he's been doing and the meals he's been eating. The rooms are lovely and spacious, with lots of inviting toys and equipment for the children to use. My son has made lots of friends and has close bonds with staff members, he now loves going to Busy Bees at Egham and we are so pleased we chose this nursery for him.

My daughter joined Busy Bees in Egham in April 2016 and we have been extremely happy with how she has settled in. Staff have been great from the start, friendly, helpful and very consistent with a low staff turnover which helps little ones to feel secure in their environment. The building itself has been beautifully done and has a great outdoor area and all the necessary facilities to help the children develop and learn. Overall a really lovely "second home" for my little girl.

Busy Bees Egham Nursery is a great start before school. Everyone is so friendly they all enjoy working with the children and my child loves being there with them. I'm very happy with how my child has grown in confidence and independence while being at the nursery. It's so nice being able to leave your child somewhere you know they're happy and safe.
