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 4.553 for Streatham Montessori Nursery & Day Care is calculated as follows: ( (134 Excellents x 5) + (83 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.553

  • 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 Streatham Montessori Nursery & Day Care is based on 11 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 6.8 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.

We chose this nursery because the owner/manager's views on encouraging children to learn aligned with our own. Our son has since gone from strength to strength. We receive regular emailed updates too on his progress, which is a new thing they've introduced.
The staff are very caring and supportive. We would thoroughly recommend this nursery.

The Montessori Nursery was our first and preferred choice as we discovered we were very interested in the way they teach. The staff are very attached to the children and try to follow the child's needs as well as very cooperative with the parents. The activities encourage independence and confidence and the level of learning is quite impressive. Our child is very happy at the nursery and seems to be quite advanced comparing to other children at other nurseries. He respects and always listens to his teachers and applies some of the nursery's rules even at home. We would definitely recommend Streatham Montessori Nursery.

Streatham Montessori is in my view one of the best nurseries in the area (I visited in total 7 nurseries) I wanted a small caring place for my one-year-old daughter. She settled very quickly thanks to the amazing staff working at the nursery. She is learning useful stuff for her future years at school and also social skills (sharing, tidying up, feeding by herself). The nursery has been great with potty training and helping her with her English (I only speak Spanish with her and now she says more words in English than Spanish and she goes to nursery only 3 full days). I am also so happy with communication with the nursery, they are always there to listen to the parents and give us advice. The extra activities are brilliant and it's a great opportunity to get to know other parents. The kids also are learning French (free of charge) and football (a small fee).

My son has thrived at the nursery over the last 18 months. We are delighted with how happy he is and the progress he has made in his emotional development, social skills, and learning. He has made many friends and loves his teachers.
All the staff are excellent and have taken great care of our son. The nursery is professionally run and we have always been impressed with how orderly it is at drop off and collection times. Any health and safety issues have been dealt with appropriately and we have never had any concerns.
They are also very good at providing feedback on what he has done at school - with notes on a daily basis in the baby class and regular updates and photos through a website for all classes. Termly parents evening gives more detailed feedback and insights.
Overall, we are delighted with the nursery and would strongly recommend it to family, friends and others.

Streatham Montessori is a fantastic nursery where my daughter has continued to excel and develop at an amazing rate. The facilities are modern and great for development, but the real gem is the staff. They are friendly, professional and very good at what they do. My daughter's excitement when I drop her off speaks volumes, I barely get a goodbye and I know I am leaving her in good hands. I would have no hesitation in sending any future children to Streatham Montessori.

I sent my daughter to this nursery on her first birthday till now (for more than a year and a half) and we are delighted with the nursery. She's learning a lot for her age (like days of the week, songs and also how to feed by herself, tidy up her toys, brushing her teeth etc..) The nursery also helped us as parents in raising our daughter and the staff is always there to answer our questions. We highly recommend Streatham Montessori

This was our first nursery with our 1-year-old son, so it was a difficult decision for us with no previous experience. However, Streatham Montessori has been brilliant and we are so glad we chose it. He settled in very quickly and, what can be a very stressful time, was actually a quick and relatively pain-free process. I have no doubt that this was down to the individual staff members. They are very friendly and he has made some lovely bonds with them. They are passionate about the children's development and we are really happy with our son's development so far. Every day he has a smile on his face when we drop him off - you can't ask for more than that.

As a family, we have had a relationship with the nursery for five years, with both of our children having attended from the age of one to four and therefore benefitted from the care and attention and education from the baby room, all the way to the older children's classroom. We are very happy with the development and nurturing our children have received and the pro activity of nursery staff in involving us as parents at appropriate times.

Our daughter attended Streatham Montessori from age 1-4 years and we were very pleased with her care. The nursery has an intimate family feel and the staff are great. She has flourished, particularly in the preschool class where she has learnt reading, writing, maths, French, football, the world maps and other topics.
The nursery has a calm, can do vibe and encourages independence in the children. Although the outdoor space isn't huge, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the nursery.

We have put both of our children through Streatham Montessori Nursery & Day Care. They both started shortly after their 1st birthdays and attended all the way through to school (even though we moved away from the area!). They loved every moment. The staff are caring, warm, fun and friendly and both our children bonded with them immediately. I would (and have) recommend them to any parent.

Our son attended the nursery for the best part of two years with his time there only ending when we moved out of the area. Throughout his time there we found it very difficult to find fault in anything at this nursery and we wish could have taken the nursery with us when we moved. The main strength of the nursery was their friendly staff who genuinely enjoyed working with the children and seemed to be more excited about seeing our son progress than we were! Our son is now in a new nursery and has settled well but we believe his ability to settle quickly with little difficulty is largely down to the experiences he was given at Streatham Montessori and we can't recommend them highly enough.

This nursery is friendly and both our children have benefited from the love and warmth provided. The nursery benefits from low staff turnover and all the staff seem qualified to a very good care standard - there are none of the young teenagers that are fresh out into the workforce. Most are also qualified in Montessori teaching and some are working to quiet high levels of training. The only slight problem for the nursery is that these very qualified teachers become highly desirable and some of the best teachers have moved. The highlights for me have been the care in the 1-2-year-old room, where the children are skillfully settled and given lots of love and attention. Our oldest had a bad experience before, and I think she settled relatively quickly and loved her key worker. The Montessori element kicks in at 2, and children are encouraged to use it. The nursery could benefit from more Montessori kit particular for the older children. The outdoor space is limited, but good use is made.

Very friendly place. Everybody, even teachers from other rooms, know my baby's name - very helpful and communicative - my baby seems very happy there. Premises are a bit tatty but very clean.

I have been very happy with my son's experience of his nursery. The staff made him very welcome and helped him to settle in when he started. He seems to be kept stimulated by a variety of activities and he eats well.

We felt the entire nursery team cared for both our daughters needs and ours as first time parents extremely well. A great play orientated yet learning environment that supported all developmental stages and really fosters a community spirited attitude. 5 Star, approachable, considerate and well run!!

This is a small and very friendly nursery that has a homely feel. Our son who is under 2 years old has been regularly attending and has always been treated with the greatest care. He settled in very quickly. All of the staff are very communicative, our son's key worker bonded quickly with our son and all the carers have been excellent. We see the same faces each time we pick up/drop off and they always greet us with a smile and an update on how our son has been that day. The food is cooked on site and always smells great so we know our son eats well here. One of the great touches is you get a hand written report about your child's day telling you what they did, what they ate, how much milk they took etc... which is very reassuring. The manager is excellent and very responsive to the needs of parents, as are all the staff. A staff member always greets us with a smile at the door for drop off and pick up. Overall highly recommended.

Both my children have got off to a great start in life by attending the nursery, and are not only doing well academically but are also confident in their abilities. My son (who is now 8) has achieved 9 A's in his most recent report and though this is due to a number of factors I strongly believe the independence and confidence he derived from his time at the nursery filled him with the belief that we reinforce at home which is to be the best that you can be. We actually kept my daughter at the nursery as opposed to putting her in a mainstream nursery and we have seen the benefits of this decision with the gusto and eagerness to learn that she is now applying in her reception class.
In short the academia, self belief and more importantly the way all the staff have looked after our children has played a vital role in shaping our children's future which is something I will always be eternally grateful for.
