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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.708 for Barley Lane Montessori Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (105 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.708

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of children) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a nursery has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of children to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a nursery with 40 children has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

I have two kids that have been in the nursery over the past years and have had a great time over the years as the environment is very lovely, always clean and tidy and a very good management team. Very friendly and polite staff who always seek the childrens interest and follow up with a positive development plan always. I have never regretted joining my kids with Barley Lane Montessori and would always recommend to friends and family members.

The nursery staff are trained to an excellent level. They are very professional and friendly. The children at the nursery are safe and happy. The nursery management is of a good standard. Managers are visible in the nursery, are very approachable. I would recommend the nursery to organise local trips to the farm and parks with parents and children.

A very friendly and welcoming atmosphere which gives me a peace of mind as a full time working mother.

Description:

I have worked at the Nursery for about 5 years. I started with a NVQ Level 2 qualification in Childcare and worked towards my Level 3 qualification while in a short time after I started working here. I have worked in all the rooms – from Baby to Pre-school.

The Nursery has a lot of training opportunities and I have been fortunate enough to be able to go on many of these trainings, and they have contributed to my growth immensely.

For me the Nursery is like a second family as everyone is friendly and seeks to help each other out. The staff outings and meetings are a great team building experience which is not found in many other establishments. The internal promotion policy of the company affords staff members the chance of self-advancement. I was on my maternity for a year and a half and I came back to the Nursery with my baby in the Baby Room at the Nursery. The staff members have really helped with making the transition of becoming a working mum at the nursery a very smooth and encouraging experience – they are really great!

I love working with the children most especially in the Pre-School as everyday holds a new experience as we tend to witness the changes in the children as they grow.

Job Title: Senior Deputy Manager

Joined: 2011

Description:

I studied at Bower Park Secondary School, during my time there we had the opportunity to go on a two weeks work placement. My neighbour worked at a nursery and I went on to do my work placement with her.

I really enjoyed my time working at the nursery and I knew after that I wanted to pursue a career in childcare. By my year 9 I could choose topics I wanted to take for my GCSE, so I decided to take BTEC Health and Social Care which covered a range of topics including Childcare. I achieved a BTEC Level 2 and later went on to achieve level 3 diploma in Childcare and education.

I joined Barley Lane Montessori Day Nursery in 2011 and since then I have learnt new skills and built on my knowledge of childcare and Education. I have many opportunities to try new things. Everybody here works well in a team and supports each other at work. There is a positive and happy atmosphere throughout the setting which encourages everyone to stay in good spirit.

I have progressed from working in the toddlers’ room as a nursery officer to being a Deputy Manager, which has further exposed me to some different skills. I have enjoyed much support and training opportunities to help me with my role. I am also planning to go for my foundation degree in the coming year to further my knowledge and skills.

Mrs Meenakshi (Meesha) Jalah

Ever since I graduated followed by my teaching degree, I started to work with children and never looked back. Each child amazes me and the passion and desire to work constructively for the children keeps building up in me.

Having my own childcare and education company enables me to fulfil my vision of a happy community of childcare with outstanding achievements.

My nursery schools provide child centred environments where all kinds of learning styles are catered for and worked with. We are a very multicultural nursery school community with children and team members from all ethnic background attending.

Our nursery schools also offers apprenticeship to support younger generation willing to train in the childcare and education industry.

We cater for children from birth till 11 years, offering wrap around care throughout the years, and have become an indispensable part of the local area we serve.

Through our innovative educational care programme, we have brought the Nursery parents community together time and again, enabling parents to come together as friends, connect and support each other in the modern era of sole parenting.

We work in partnership with our local (Redbridge) education authority team known as London Borough of Redbridge South Locality Improvement Team for continuous quality improvements.

The future plans for the nurseries includes providing a challenging and calm environment on a continuous basis to meet the different growing needs of the children. We continuously work hard to provide high quality education and exemplary care to our children. We nurture and groom them for becoming innovative and successful learners.
