Reviews

8.6 Cherry Tree Montessori Nursery has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.625)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Cherry Tree 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cherry Tree Montessori Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 2 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 4.958 for Cherry Tree Montessori Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 3.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cherry Tree Montessori Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.417

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

I am so happy with this nursery! I have a 2 and a half-year-old who started here 8 months ago. When I came to look round the nursery all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The manager who showed me round gave me all the information I needed. I and my partner viewed a few nurseries in the area, but when we saw this one we just knew it was perfect for our little girl! They have 2 beautiful garden areas which they spend so much time out in. Still, now she comes home from her day and talks about all the exciting things she has been up to and she comes home and talks about her french and pilates lessons.

My son started at Cherry Tree Montessori Nursery in January 2017. We'd looked around a few other nurseries in the area but as soon as we walked into Cherry Tree we knew it was right for our son and for us. The ladies made us feel at ease straight away and explained the day to day activities they do. We were invited to 3 settling in sessions and I immediately knew my son was going to be absolutely fine in their care.
They are always so welcoming in the mornings at drop off time and update me on what he'll be doing that day, and always have the time to tell me what kind of day he's had when I come to collect him. He's always happy to go to any of the key workers there which is a comfort. I couldn't have wished for a better transition for him when I had to return to work.

My little girl has recently started at this beautiful nursery and I just wish that I had found it earlier! :-)
She has settled in wonderfully with the exceptional care from all the staff. We had the most lovely induction session where we were made most welcome by the owner, as we walked in we felt the lovely kind atmosphere and everything is so spotlessly clean!
Each time I drop my little girl off she is full of enthusiasm and the staff are always bright and bubbly to start the day! It is fabulous that I can leave her without a second thought for her well-being - of course I miss her throughout the day - but I feel completely safe in the knowledge that she is receiving outstanding care and attention. I used to call up a few times to see how she was and my call was always answered happily - now I rarely call as I know she is absolutely fine in this beautiful nursery.
The activities and learning is by far above what I would have expected (French lessons, dancing lessons just to name a few!) but most importantly all the staff are brilliant and really make the children's early years a treasured time. What a lucky find! Thank you all at Cherry Tree Nursery for looking after my most treasured possession you are all amazing.

My son has been attending this nursery since May 2015. I removed him from another nursery after he suffered a serious burns injury.
My son absolutely loves it here, and the dedication of the staff is paramount. They teach many different things, and my sons vocabulary has surpassed my expectations. They learn French and do lots of activities. With the nursery being so close to Moors Valley, the children are often taken here on days out, and go and ride the train.
They have a very secure garden, with multiple different play areas. The children interact with the pet guinea pigs.
The manners that they teach the children are astounding, and I could not fault the nursery.
I was very picky and anxious after my sons accident at his previous nursery, so to trust another nursery to care for him really shows their exceptional level of care.
