Reviews

9.2 St Helens Montessori Pre-school has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.192)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for St Helens Montessori Pre-school is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Helens Montessori Pre-school in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 3 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 4.942 for St Helens Montessori Pre-school is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 69 Ratings = 4.942

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Helens Montessori Pre-school is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 0.750

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

Reviewer Connection to St Helens Montessori Pre-school

  • Mother of Child

St Helens Montessori has provided my daughter with the best possible start towards her school life. The staff are caring, considerate and passionate about what they do. Difficult drop-offs became a thing of the past and now we get tears of "I don't want to go" at the end of the day. The transition to primary school was dealt with in such a relaxed manner way that it could only be enjoyable for the child. For me, the only negative is the shortage of indoor space but this cannot be helped.

When your child starts a nursery for the first time it can be a nerve-wracking experience for parents and children alike. Knowing that you are leaving your little one with people that really care for them and where you are confident of their well-being is crucial. I have never once been in doubt about this at St Helens Montessori. The staff really do care about the children...they look after them as if they are their own and I feel certain that my little one is safe and secure with them. I cannot rate this nursery and the team there highly enough.

Fantastic pre-school. Both my son and daughter have learned so much going there. It has a great balance between learning and play. It gave the right amount of discipline to allow children to play happily but not run riot. My children made firm friends here.
Both of them have gone to school knowing how to write their names, do the alphabet, count to 30 and there are a few other things that a lot of the fellow classmates in reception class still cannot do.
I cannot recommend this pre-school highly enough.

I couldn't have hoped for a better start to pre school for my little girl. She obviously feels very welcome and secure which is testament to the care and organisation of the staff. There is a lovely calm but busy atmosphere.
