Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.59 for Mace Montessori Nursery School (Russell Square) is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.59

  • 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 Mace Montessori Nursery School (Russell Square) is based on 8 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

Great setting, the girls love and look forward to every day at the nursery. They talk about they're experience all day long when they come back. The teachers definitely make a very enjoyable and long lasting memory on our children.

I wish to thank you, all the staff of the nursery and especially all the personnel who were more involved with my kids as they've always been responsive to demands and questions relating to them as well as to specific requirements in the daily care we provided them. I truly appreciated the attention paid to the children and the nursery's openness to welcome suggestions in caring for the kids provided by other professionals involved in their care provision.

Our daughter was given early admittance to this nursery aged 15 months. As the youngest in the nursery at the time, we had many concerns but were quickly put at ease by our daughter's rapid progress including growing confidence and independence. We feel all the teachers at the nursery display a genuine care for our daughter and are invested in her personal development. We thoroughly recommend this nursery to any interested parents/carers.

My only wish would be for a bigger space and better ventilation inside -currently, french doors, not windows - so in the winter can be a bit stuffy.

Mace Montessori is a fantastic nursery. It is an extremely loving and caring environment and my daughter is so happy there. They are gentle in their approach to learning, but my daughter (2 years old) has already learnt so much in the two months she has been there. The staff are fantastic - truly interested in the children and happy to see them in the morning.

My daughter enjoys every moment at Mace! It has been a very pleasant experience with the manager and teachers. She feels very welcomed and settled very well from the beginning. The teachers make her feel very comfortable and attend to her needs. They know her preferences well and allows her to explore various aspects to hone her development. She has learnt a lot about herself and learnt to be independent in many ways which has benefited her much.

My child has been at the Mace Montessori Nursery School (Russell Square) for almost a year now and he's very happy there.
I like the Montessori method, and that the nursery is small and intimate.
The quality of the staff, on the whole, seems very good and the new manager seems to be doing a great job.
I would like to see the outdoor space developed and the children to have their hands in the mud a little more. Play and exploration is what I would like them to keep up.
Overall my child is always happy to arrive and often wants to stay when it's time to leave, which is the key indicator to me that it's a good nursery that I would recommend to others.

Mace Montessori Nursery School (Russell Square) itself is a bright, colourful and fun environment providing an excellent backdrop for more effective learning. The management and teaching staff are welcoming and approachable, who are very professional and experienced individuals catering to the needs of the children. It is a pleasure to see the children always smiling, interacting and most of all, having fun! I have already recommended friends and family to the Nursery. The manager and team do a splendid job at supporting and nurturing the children.

Very happy with my son's progress at the nursery, since he has started the nursery in Feb 2017 he has shown great development with everything he does.
My child is now more independent, he is more sociable when he meets new people, he has developed great eating habits and likes to sit around the table.
As a parent, I am very happy with Mace Montessori Nursery School (Russell Square) because the staff spend a lot of one to one time with him and that shows on his improvements.
