Young Haymakers Montessori Nursery, Heathfield, East Sussex

Young Haymakers was judged Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2013. They are passionate in providing high quality learning experiences for all young children. At Young Haymakers they aim to provide a curriculum that combines all aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage with Montessori principals, promoting independence, concentration and high levels of self-esteem in all children they care for.

The Montessori curriculum is designed to provide each child with the opportunity to work at his or her own pace, to practice and refine a combination of skills that encourage independence and lays the foundations to inspire each child.

The nursery is situated in the heart of the Sussex countryside in a converted barn with stunning rural views, surrounded by fields and woodland. At Young Haymakers they have invested highly in their outdoor environments as they feel it is vital to provide children with stimulating, challenging and natural spaces to play and learn safely. Their vision is to provide stimulating static physical equipment, alongside 'loose parts' resources, that together will encourage young children to practice and refine their gross, fine and cognitive skills.

Play fosters positive attitudes so that children can: Imagine, show emotions, cooperate, share, communicate, negotiate, be motivated, practice, consolidate, extend, reflect, persevere, experiment, investigate, question and have fun.

In 2017 the nursery will open a bespoke environment specifically for babies aged nine months to two years of age.

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Young Haymakers Montessori Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Young Haymakers Montessori Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 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. 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 5 for Young Haymakers Montessori Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Young Haymakers Montessori Nursery is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167

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

I could not be happier, Young Haymakers is well above excellent. I had problems leaving my son with anyone, he could not cope being away from me, I had tried many times...then I found Young Haymakers. They are all so friendly and professional...my son's keyworker worked with him for his needs and made him feel safe, secure and happy so it was not long until he just waved goodbye to me and happily went into the nursery. HE LOVES IT!! My son has come on AMAZINGLY with his speech and physical skill as well. Their facilities are fantastic as well. It is clean and well laid out with so much to do for the children and the outside is amazing with lots of learning and fun things to do. Also, my son loves the walks they go on in the woods. My son and I believe there could not be a better nursery.

Brilliant communication between the key-worker and parent appears to be a priority. I always feel that my child is nurtured and cared for as an individual with his own specific needs and character traits being worked with and enhanced. I am confident that the nursery are honest with me in relation to my child's happiness and progress whilst under their care.
