Reviews

6.9 Star Child Montessori Day Nursery has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.895)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Star Child Montessori Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Star Child Montessori Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.2 out of 5 from 9 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.686 for Star Child Montessori Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (81 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.686

  • 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 2.209 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Star Child Montessori Day Nursery is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.417 , then divided by 2 = 0.209

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

My daughter has flourished in this loving and calm setting. The learning experience is reinforced not just in terms of formal education but also in relation to social skills.
I would strongly recommend this nursery - speaking to the staff will reassure any parent who is a little nervous about leaving their child for the first time.

As it's almost a year since our son joined the nursery, we are pleased with the level of care and learning. Our son has displayed more sociable skills and enjoys coming to nursery. He is happy and thriving and the staff are always keeping us up to date with his learning progress. We are happy with everything and the way our son is developing. Thanks.

I looked through my son's file and I was happy with the way everything was ongoing. It states how my son is developing, lots of observations done by the school, what my son has achieved so far.

We are very happy that we found this nursery our only regret is that we didn't find it earlier.
The care for the children and the learning methods are excellent. It was a really nice experience to see how our child learnt to acquire knowledge, not just memorise but to reason and understand. Now that our child is already at school, we can see that all those foundation blocks on his learning journey are well cemented in him.

Lovely nursery, excellent care and attention given by all the staff. They looked after my son wonderfully and helped him develop immensely and learn manners and develop good behaviour. My son learnt to sit at the table and enjoy meals with other children (and a variety of different meals) which again was a first for him. I would leave my son every morning and be assured in the feeling that he was looked after in a warm, loving and caring environment.
All the staff are very accommodating to parent's needs and requests. A very lovely setting for children to be in during their early years.
