Reviews

9.6 Playhouse Montessori Ltd has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.576)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Playhouse Montessori Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Playhouse Montessori Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 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 4.849 for Playhouse Montessori Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (101 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.849

  • 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 4.727 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Playhouse Montessori Ltd 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 11 Target = 0.727

  • 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 started when he was only 2 years old and now just turned three and has learnt a lot of things including speaking, he has made lots of friends!

I am very happy with the nursery, thank you.

My son joined Playhouse a few months after his second Birthday. The progress that he’s made is amazing and a credit to the support, care and kindness he’s been shown by everyone at Playhouse. He’s confident, articulate, bright and cheery and I can honestly say that his time at Playhouse has shaped much of that.

As parents, choosing a nursery that you hope will nurture and develop your child is challenging, but Playhouse was definitely the right decision for us. We were always made to feel welcome and listened to and that our son was in safe hands. Definite 5 stars!!!

I am very satisfied having chosen this nursery as I see my son coming back home very happy. He tells me his adventures with the lovely staff: all the things he is learning through play, the songs they sing, the variety of the activities every day. I love to see him so happy there which is because there is a nice atmosphere at Playhouse Montessori Ltd and also, thanks to the great job its staff is doing.

Ever since our son started attending the nursery, he's had a remarkable improvement in his confidence level, willingness to share and play with other kids and more expressive compared to his former nursery.

I would definitely be happy to recommend the school to any other parent.

Thanks again to all the staff and management for giving us the support needed during the transition period.

My three-year-old daughter has been going to Playhouse Montessori Ltd for over 6 months. I am very pleased with her progress. She learns new and creative things on a daily basis. The teachers are very well trained. The management is very co-operative and understanding. Highly recommended.

This is a great family run nursery which provides a warm welcome where every child matters; our son absolutely loves it and has been here since July '16. The staff go the extra mile to support not just his needs but ours as parents too, especially in terms of work commitments. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an excellent nursery in the area. :)

My daughter started at Playhouse Montessori at the age of 18months. She settled very quickly and I believe that it was down to how friendly and encouraging they were as a team. At home, I was training my daughter to use the toilet and as soon as I expressed that to her nursery teachers, they quickly jumped on board and reinforced the training on her days in. Daily sheets allowed me to have an insight as to what her day was like. if I was unable to have an end of day catch up with the Playhouse team. In regards to my daughters' well-being, they were very quick to pick up on unusual behaviour. They had learnt my child's character and because of this, anytime she was under the weather they called me and informed me. My daughter is very fond of her friends and teachers and the nursery and talks about them even when we are at home. She is soon turning 4 and is requesting for all of her little lovely friends and teachers to attend her birthday.

My son started here when he was 14 months old and stayed until he was 3. The nursery were incredibly supportive with my initial part time and term time requirements and my son transitioned amazingly well into full-time nursery. He thoroughly enjoyed his 2 years here, especially with the bonds he made with staff and the opportunities and experiences he had here. The nursery was incredibly encouraging with all of his interests and organised activities to suit his favorite interests. We had concerns about his speech and language and staff went above and beyond to support and help us with this and his progress was outstanding. We have moved further away so my son will now join a local pre-school. However, he thoroughly enjoyed Playhouse Montessori Ltd. The staff, care and support for both himself and us as parents was fantastic!

We moved our 2 1/2 year-old to the Playhouse last October (2015) from another nursery which had kept our daughter in the baby room beyond the point which we felt was reasonable. When we moved our daughter she was delayed in her speech and was extremely 'mummy-centric' to the point to which she would cling onto me rather than go to daddy and would push daddy away if I was in the vicinity. When she was at social events she was extremely shy and would cling to me rather than go and play with other children. Within about 1 month of her being at the Playhouse we saw a real positive change in her. She started talking much more with a considerably wider vocabulary and with much more confidence. You could see her trying out words and copying us much more. She also became much more confident and, while she continues to be a mummy's girl, she loves being with daddy and other people too. It has been wonderful to see the change in her and I feel that Playhouse with it's amazingly caring and wonderful staff, have had a massive influence on her. She is learning colours and numbers and is coming home with new bits of art and baking everyday. The owners who run the nursery have been wonderfully supportive and from the beginning did everything they could to help us with the potentially traumatic change of nurseries by being so flexible with the free settling in period. You can see that the focus is on the children and their well-being and progress and that is where the passion and enthusiasm lies which filters down to the fantastic nursery nurses.

We are so happy that we changed to Playhouse Montessori and I would recommend it to anyone.
