  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.843 for Puffins at Mont Le Grand is calculated as follows: ( (91 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.843

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Puffins at Mont Le Grand is based on 8 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 1.000

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

We have nothing but a positive experience with Puffins. Our daughter enjoys attending preschool, has made lots of friends and feels very comfortable with the preschool key workers. I feel her language and overall ability has developed really well as a result of attending. She has also learnt British sign language, in which she is really engaged, as she has taught my husband and I a few things! A great little nursery with a positive atmosphere and lovely, friendly staff.

We are so happy to have signed up our little boy to Puffins at Mont Le Grand. He comes home so happy every day. He's full of energy. He's growing visibly more independent. He does little dances and sings more songs. He's engaged, interested, curious. His vocabulary is through the roof. I would recommend Puffins at Mont Le Grand to my friends and fellow parents.

Our son has been at Puffins MLG (Mont Le Grand) for nearly a year and a half and we're really happy so far! The staff are great and seem to stay at the nursery longer term which is brilliant for building relationships with the children. They clearly really do care for and enjoy being with the children, and I'm confident in leaving our active toddler in their care! He gets up to all sorts of activities, and the online system is great so I can see what he has been getting up to throughout the day. Very happy and would definitely recommend.

We have had our children at Puffins Mont Le Grand since 2012 and have been delighted with the service offered over this time. The key workers are fantastic- really professional, hard working and friendly and our children have been so happy at Puffins, in all the different rooms. We like the fact that the setting is small, and has a homely layout and the activities seem varied and very appropriate to age. Our children have responded really well at Puffins, love their keyworkers and made some great friendships. Highly recommended!

There is no better feeling as a parent when your child loves going to nursery! This has been the case for us since our initial show around at Mont Le Grand. Our daughter made no hesitation in getting involved in nursery life and this was helped by the welcoming environment and staff. Our daughter is enthusiastic to go into nursery each morning and it often takes us a while to leave in the evenings, as she just wants to stay and play! Staff are very attentive to our daughter's needs and offer her enriching and exciting experiences that take into account her own interests. Staff are welcoming in the mornings and share lots of feedback about her day in the evenings. The online system is excellent as this also allows my husband to feel just as involved in our daughters care without having to be present. When our daughter learns to talk, I’m sure she will say ‘I love nursery’.

My daughter has been at Puffins since September 2016. She settled very quickly and built great bonds with several staff at the setting. She comes home showing me new shapes and colours and sings lots of new songs she has learnt! She loves going to nursery and has built her confidence over the months she has been there! The staff always inform me of any accidents or if my daughter becomes upset. they also keep me updated with their plans of going on trips to day to day activities! Their online system is great too with a great team! Glad I chose Puffins to look after my child!

Very pleased with Puffins MLG. My son is 10 months old and has settled in so well over the last three months. The staff are really friendly and caring and my boy has a smile on his face when I drop him off and when I pick him up! Food looks good and days are well structured with plenty of fun and imaginative activities planned.
I like that lots of trips out are planned too. I was also very impressed with the settling in sessions, we were encouraged to start these early and I think it really did help when it was time to leave baby for his first full day. Altogether can't fault this nursery.
