  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time.

    The Average Rating of 4.542 for Red Robin Montessori is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.542

  • 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.

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.083

Reviewer Connection to Red Robin Montessori

  • Father of Child
  • Mother of Child

My daughter who is 10 years old attended Red Robin when it first opened and my 4-year-old is on the verge of leaving to attend school. On both occasions, the nursery has more than met my expectations. The level of learning is second to none, the Montessori teaching is excellent. The staff are so caring and the children pick up on their caring nature. My daughter is more than ready to start school, folding her clothes, tying her shoe laces and others! The staff especially in the year before they start school, really do prepare them, I have seen such a big difference in my daughter. The manager and the staff are so lovely and I am so sad that my daughter is leaving. To add, my 2 nephews also attend the nursery. I would definitely recommend this nursery!

This is a welcoming, friendly and professionally well run nursery. Our child has been made extremely welcome and looks forward to their nursery days (3 days a week). The staff are very approachable and have made, and continue to make our child feel at ease whilst staying there. We are equally impressed with the daily reports we receive, which tell us how our daughter has been/done/eaten etc. Likewise, on occasion when there has been an accident we are told about all the details which is very reassuring. This is a really well run nursery that we cannot recommend highly enough!
