Reviews

8.5 Busy Bees at Chichester has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.500)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Chichester 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 Busy Bees at Chichester in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 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 5 for Busy Bees at Chichester is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Chichester 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. We do not have a record of how many registered maximum number of service users this Day Nursery has thus a score for this part is not attainable.

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

I am absolutely blown away by this nursery and am so pleased I have my little one here and will soon be sending my youngest too!

This nursery is extremely clean, literally all of the time! Some great spaces indoors and outdoors for the children to play, develop and learn and the staff are the friendliest and switched on I have seen in any nursery.

I really like the fact that there is a uniform for the 3-4-year-olds to prepare them well for their school years!

Home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinners on the premises and again very clean kitchen and hygienic chef.

My little boy loves coming here and is always talking about busy bees what he did there and his friends and teachers.

Can not fault this nursery, thank you for coming to Chichester!!!

Thank you for taking time to complete your kind review.

I am so happy with this nursery. They truly are amazing. My son is extremely happy there. All the staff are extremely friendly and are so enthusiastic. They care so much about the childrens' well being and progress and my son has become really independent since being here and has progressed in many ways. The environment in his pre-school room is fantastic for learning and play. Well equipped with fabulous resources and a lovely atmosphere throughout. My son looks forward to going every day.

My daughter started in Busy Bees confident, playful and very happy. She is eating there. What a big difference. In the previous nursery, she didn't even try food. Happy child - happy mummy.
