Reviews

9 Honeybee's Day Nursery & Pre-School has a Review Score of 9 (8.989)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Honeybee's Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Honeybee's Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 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 4.972 for Honeybee's Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (35 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.972

  • 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 4.017 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Honeybee's Day Nursery & 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 5.8 Target = 0.517

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

Reviewer Connection to Honeybee's Day Nursery & Pre-School

  • Mother of Child

We are delighted that we chose Honeybees pre-school when we moved into the area. They settled our son in brilliantly after a swift changeover from his previous nursery, (which he had known since he was 6 months old). He talked of making new friends very quickly, and rarely complains about going in, so socially, we are very happy with his development. Similarly, he seems to have been learning rapidly within the early learning stage - he enthuses about the topic area all the way home. We really love the use of the 'Tapestry' app which helps us see what he's been up to, and is a great way to share updates on his progress with grandparents who live many miles away. He eats well (far better than at home) sleeps well and behaves well - respecting the positive re-enforcement he receives from his teachers. All of the staff seem to know him well, which is very reassuring. We like how his independence is encouraged and the outside space is spectacular. We will be sad to leave you all in the summer.

Thank you very much for your lovely review.

A brilliant nursery, with a very happy and welcoming atmosphere. All the staff are lovely and I feel so comfortable leaving my son in their care. He's developed in so many ways since joining Honeybee's, he loves it there. Highly recommended!

Thank you very much for your review, we appreciate your feedback. With thanks, The Honeybees team.

Our son loves going to Honeybee's. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the facilities, in particular, the garden are fantastic and he always has lots of fun. I couldn't ask for a better environment for him and would recommend to anybody looking for a nursery.
