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 4.954 for Elizabeth's Montessori Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (125 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.954

  • 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 Elizabeth's Montessori Nursery 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.

My daughter settled quickly at Elizabeth Montessori. In weeks her drawing and writing skills and come on in leaps and bounds. She was able to make friends and was also encouraged to play with all the children equally. She eats well and is always happy at the end of the dya., telling us stories about what she has done including drama and French class. She has started to use phonics and recognise letters. Each day she comes home with artwork, coloured maps, sewing and cutting practice. This is the perfect environment pre-school.

My daughter has attended Elizabeth's Montessori for a year and a half. The staff are very knowledgeable and take great care over the children. There is a strong focus on developing independence and my child has made great progress across the curriculum. She enjoys going into nursery in the mornings and is always engaged and happy when I pick her up. The staff are brilliant at listening to and supporting parents as well. As a teacher myself, I am thrilled to have found such a nurturing child-centred nursery.

Elizabeth's Montessori has provided an amazing, nurturing environment for my son. He struggled to settle at first and all the staff have been fantastic, supporting him and us as parents.
He has come on hugely since starting and he loves his time here.

Since our daughter has joined the nursery she has become more independent, showing a growing interest in numbers and overall, she has brought home all her knowledge. She thrives at the nursery and enjoys pretending to be a teacher at home. This is the best environment for her to grow and develop into a young girl.

My daughter has been attending for the past 2 years where we've seen her develop into a confident girl with good manners and a thirst to learn/ask new questions etc.
Elizabeth Montessori has helped her with her writing, numbers, reading and helped grow her interest outdoor activities.
The staff are supportive and encouraging. It's like a family.

We have had a brilliant experience with Elizabeth's Montessori Nursery and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. Both our girls went here, our eldest for three years from 2-5 years and our youngest is still there. It is a very stimulating and enjoyable environment and they have learnt so much whilst being there. We really like the Montessori environment and our children have been very happy at the nursery.
They have a wide range of activities the children are supported to be very independent and it's very calm and organised nursery. We love loved it.

The staff at Elizabeth Montessori Nursery have been brilliant. Our daughter is nervous and shy and we were concerned about how she would settle in but the staff were so supportive and caring and made it much easier than we expected. We and our daughter love the freedom of the Montessori setting and she has learnt so much in a short time. We liked the fact that all the children of different ages are together so there was a very smooth transition from the two-year-old to three-year-old pre-school group.
