Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Anstey)

Latimer Street, Anstey, Leicester LE7 7AW

The Lilliput Montessori group of nurseries began in 1994 in Anstey, with the conversion of the village Liberal Club.

In 2005 the building was extended to provide a baby unit for under twos which has its own side entrance but is connected to the rest of the building on the inside.

The link through to the main building then joins with one of the rooms for two to three-year-olds, making the transition that much easier for children. There are two rooms for this age group.

The nursery's garden area has recently been redeveloped with log cabins, climbing areas and slides, all surrounded by safety surfacing.

On the first floor there's a large open plan area and two smaller rooms for the three and four-year-olds.

The ethos behind the nursery is based on Montessori principles, which extols the benefits of child-led play and learning.

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 4.847 for Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Anstey) is calculated as follows: ( (61 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.847

  • 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 4.38 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Anstey) is based on 6 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 15.8 positive Reviews (79 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 15.8 Target = 0.380

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

Our son has settled into the baby room of the Nursery so well, thanks to the amazing staff. I feel so comfortable leaving him in their capable hands and I know he has a great time. The staff use Tapestry to keep me updated and show me how much fun he is having, and he is always smiling and playing when I pick him up. Thank you so much for looking after him so well, just like you did with my daughter all those years ago!

It's lovely to see how well he has settled, thank you for the lovely feedback.

I couldn’t be happier with the nursery. My daughter joined when she was 2.5 years old and now my 15 months old son too. I was worried with them being bilingual, but how they treat every child individually is amazing.
They teach the children to be independent, creative, they do lots of different activities and spend lots of time playing outdoors. Staff is super nice, very professional and supportive and I cannot imagine any better care for my children, we trust the nursery 100%.
Would highly recommend to any parent.

Thank you for your lovely feedback.

My twins have been going here since they were eight months (they are now two years old). The nursery have been brilliant since day one. They offered free settling in sessions which were great to help all involved relax. They are very flexible, offering term time only places and the ability to swap days if needed for medical appointments etc. They are very accommodating with sticking to home routines where possible.
My daughter is deaf and they have excellent in accommodating her, her needs and her extra equipment. They have extra training and have had numerous professionals in to help her develop and expand their expertise. They are always on hand if her needs change or have changed.
A brilliant nursery for both of my children where they have developed and flourished with the help of the staff and manager.

Thank you for your lovely feedback.

Excellent nursery, that offers flexibility to parents, which is ideal if you work shifts. They also offer the opportunity to attend forest school to the pre school room, which is a fantastic holistic learning opportunity.

My daughter loves going to nursery, the staff are great and understanding with her as she is very shy.
They do lots of different activities and often bring home things made at nursery and the food offered couldn't be better.

Carly Ward, Manager at Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Anstey) responded to this review on 28 Mar 2018:

Thank you for your lovely review.

I love the fact our daughter goes to this nursery. The nursery is totally flexible, unlike some nurseries that just offer set days. There have been times I have needed to put my daughter in at short notice and it has never been any trouble. They are great with children with intolerances. The staff are great and lovely with the children. My daughter has learnt so much whilst being in their care. I would recommend this nursery to everyone!

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. I know that the manager and her team work very hard to ensure that all of the children in our care are catered for on an individual basis and to hear your feedback regarding intolerances is confirmation that they are doing a great job! Many thanks.
