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 4.771 for Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Leicester Forest East) is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.771

  • 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 4.4 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Leicester Forest East) 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.400

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

This is a fantastic nursery that I would definitely recommend. The staff are attentive and caring and very interested in the children. My child started in the toddler room and is now in pre-school. The care in both rooms has been superb. Even when the ratios change as the children get bigger, the level of care remains excellent.
I am also very impressed with the forest school sessions that are offered and the learning side of things, phonics, counting etc. When I collected my child a couple of weeks ago, a member of staff was sat with him asking him to pass a certain number of large/small plastic teddies, which had the appearance of a game but was also helping with counting.
Overall, a brilliant nursery.

My daughter really enjoys the nursery. Since she has been going she has developed, made friends with other children and staff. Staff are very attentive and caring and appear to understand the needs of individual children. The facility standards are always high and reflect the care and attention. I have already recommended it to friends who now also go to this nursery and very happy!

I would recommend Lilliput Montessori to anybody and have done so, all three of my girls have gone to the Leicester Forest East branch, my eldest starting in toddlers and going right through to after school club. I find the place to have excellent standards in all areas. My girls love it there so much that I sometimes have problems getting them to leave which goes to show how much they enjoy their time there.

The staff have always been brilliant and informative as to what the girls have done each day, from activities they have taken part in, to the food they have eaten to their toileting. The BRILLIANT staff that do such a wonderful job. I've seen all three of my girls come on leaps and bounds since attending Lilliputs and I can't thank them enough for there hard work.

Having to send my child to Day Care was a heartbreaking decision that I had to make when she was only 9 months old. However, I felt so at ease leaving my child there knowing that she was well taken care of, had fun and most importantly was safe.
The staff are absolutely amazing and my child always talks about them when we get home. There have even been times where she has refused to come home with me at the end of the day and insisted she wanted to have a sleepover at Nursery! To me, this was the most positive way of proving that she felt safe, happy and at home in their care.
Thank you to all of the staff at Lilliput LFE. I would recommend this Nursery to everyone.

The staff at the Lilliput Montessori nursery are caring, attentive and always available to talk to. Staff have a 1:1 handover system to parents informing us of what activities our children have been doing during the day, their mealtimes and toileting information which is very helpful to know. The staff: children ratios are always maintained well and the children are happy here at Lilliput. The activities also include taking children to the local park as well as playing with everyday items for heuristic play. The meals are varied, and independence of children is encouraged. Children play together well and the staff are always on hand to answer any queries. Regular updates and parents evenings to assess progress are very informative. Very good nursery overall and I would recommend to family and friends.

I cannot recommend Lilliput Montessori highly enough. Both my boys have been cared for here, one from pre-school through to the before and after school club and the other currently in the toddler room who has been there from 7 months old. The staff are friendly and helpful, the setting is safe and has a nice atmosphere and the management are brilliant and supportive and always there to help. The boys have made some real bonds with the staff there and they make you feel like they care about all the kids they look after. It's a great feeling as a mum (especially when first returning to work) that your kids are safe and happy, but also that the staff looking after them genuinely care. It's lovely not to worry about them at all during the working day.

Jessica Stevens, Nursery Manager at Lilliput Montessori Day Nursery (Leicester Forest East) responded to this review on 19 Dec 2017:

Thank you for your lovely comments Sarah. We all take pride in the work we do here, to ensure each individual child gets the best start in life.

Our daughter has been attending the Lilliput Group of Nurseries since she was born in 2006. The care and dedication of the staff has been second to none, and they have played a very important part in her life.

The environment is perfect for children to learn and develop at their own pace and the children look happy and settled whenever I take her in. We have been using the Galaxy Gang after school and holiday club for the past 6 years and my daughter loves the friends that she has made whilst she has attended.

I am very sad that she has now outgrown the nursery and after school club. I would like to thank Lilliput for helping her grow into the confident and able girl that she is now. The staff and management team really are a credit to you.
