Reviews

9.9 Blossoms Montessori Children's House has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.875)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Blossoms Montessori Children's House 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Blossoms Montessori Children's House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.875 for Blossoms Montessori Children's House is calculated as follows: ( (126 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blossoms Montessori Children's House is based on 5 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 4 Target Reached = 1

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

My son has been so happy here at Blossoms Montessori Children's House. Over the last 2 years, we have found it such a nurturing environment with a clear passion and wonderful understanding of Montessori learning. The staff are so attentive and open for both the children and parents. It is so creative and fun. I can't better a more brilliant start for my son as he heads up to 'big school'. Reception stage reporting of the child's progress is extremely thorough and clear.

We were drawn to the warm, calm, welcoming atmosphere and staff at Blossoms and could not recommend it more. My son has thrived and is always so excited on a nursery day. We are amazed at the progress he has made, they have helped to instil a real love of learning. Every term is busy with topics that my son is fascinated by and it is clear how passionate the staff are to support the children's learning especially when using the Montessori resources. We are so lucky to have discovered it and my second son will also be attending when he is old enough. A real gem of a nursery which I have no issues in wholeheartedly recommending.

Blossoms Montessori is a creative, caring and stimulating environment. The children do a wide range of activities including craft, cooking, storytelling, gardening, singing and French. The resources for phonics, numbers, geometry and geography are excellent. My eldest son spent three years here before going to school and left being able to read, having a grasp of the world and continents and having a keen interest in maths. The children also have plenty of free play time with toys and equipment both indoors and outdoors. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough.

Blossoms Montessori Children's House is a wonderful nursery/pre-school. The staff work hard to ensure all the children's needs are met and go above and beyond their duties on a consistent basis. This means the children are well cared for, happy and stimulated in an atmosphere conducive to learning.
There are constantly evolving activities in all areas of learning. Children divide their time between playing outside and inside in a wonderful, homely environment. I would highly recommend Blossoms Montessori Nursery.

Blossoms Montessori Children's House is a highly regarded asset to our area in London. Our daughter has been attending for a year and a half and enjoys going and enjoys the prospect of going. We as parents appreciate the high level of communication detailing the terms activities and also the opportunity to be involved at home or at the nursery itself. Bond between teacher and children is strong, the environment is very well organised, stimulating as well as feeling home from home. An extremely caring and nurturing environment where we feel our daughter has had the opportunity to flourish at her own pace and with the right amount of encouragement. Activities are well planned and engaging. Cannot recommend Blossoms Montessori Children's House highly enough in every area.

I found out about Blossom's through another Mum and the moment my son and I walked through the door we felt welcome and at home. My son loved nursery from the first day and had no problems settling in. The staff are calm and nurturing, gently spoken and encouraging. They carry out a range of activities from baking bread inside to playing in the mud kitchen outside to weekly forest school days in warmer weather. The staff have a real passion for their work and manage to inspire and engage the parents to create a friendly community. Some out standing activities/ moments during the nursery year include two, three and four year olds performing a nativity play and the mini Olympics or sports day, a fun well organised day for all the children and parents. My son will be starting school in September already has good grounding in literacy and numeracy thanks to the fun learning activities and the patient one-to-sessions he has. He also takes French classes and Yoga sessions.

Both my children have absolutely thrived at Blossoms. It's a lovely nurturing environment that really adheres to Montessori principles by creating a space for the children to develop and explore the world through their own eyes.

I am happy to thoroughly recommend it.

I'm so happy that both of my children have had the experience of going to such a wonderful nursery. They create a nurturing, stimulating environment where I really feel that children thrive. Kids from 2-4 years old are all grouped together so they learn from each other. Other Blossoms parents- past and present- have often commented on how you can often spot a Blossoms child, they tend to be happy, confident, kind children, and they go to school with a great base in reading, writing and maths. The teachers also genuinely care about the kids.

The staff are lovely, very caring and seem to be in tune with what the kids need and want. They learn so much without even realizing they are learning. I didn't realise a nursery could be so calm, all the kids are lovely. The extra things they do - French, yoga, cooking, Forest School. The list is endless. I could not be happier and could not recommend it higher.

Being a primary school teacher myself, I think I was extra fussy when choosing a nursery for my children. I felt a huge sense of relief when I entered Blossoms as it really was perfect.
The teachers are incredibly warm and knowledgeable and put my daughters and I at ease immediately. The nursery manages to be both relaxed but organised which creates an extremely calm and purposeful atmosphere. They provide appropriate activities for all ages which are challenging and exciting. I couldn't recommend this nursery highly enough. I am so glad that we found it!
