Reviews

8 Green Gables Montessori Nursery has a Review Score of 8 (7.965)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Green Gables Montessori Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Green Gables Montessori Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.833 for Green Gables Montessori Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.833

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

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.132

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

Reviewer Connection to Green Gables Montessori Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    5

My daughter has been attending Green Gables for 18 months. I chose this nursery for a look round for its Montessori and Forest schooling. I chose to send my daughter for the warm and friendly atmosphere I was immediately met with. The nursery itself is small with lovely outdoor areas. The nursery offers funded places - run in sessions (1-6) (8-1) (8-6), offers lovely home cooked meals, healthy snacks and toast/cereal for breakfast.

On a Thursday my daughter does French, and on a Monday she does football training. Then, the thing that clinched her spot there, puddle suits and off to the woods for scavenger hunts etc.

Last week I went in to collect her and she was covered in corn flour. Amazing fun.

In summary, a highly professional nursery with outstanding staff.

Green Gables Montessori Day Nursery has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and the staff care deeply about the safety and wellbeing of all the children in their care. My daughter has been attending since shortly before her second birthday and her transition in to a day care setting was seamless. She has loved attending and asks for more time there on a regular basis.

Green Gables offer a true open door policy and communication between parents and staff is excellent. It is evident to me that staff know my child very well. I feel her individual needs are recognised and met well and she has chance to explore, play and learn with her peers in a way that is just not possible at home.

The nursery is clean, the activities are varied and the home cooked food is of an exceptional standard. Staff retention is ridiculously high which provides continuance of care to the children and confidence to me as a parent that staff are happy with the setting.

I have a three year old boy who has attended since 10 months old he has progressed extremely well. He is bilingual and the nursery staff have done everything to encourage the second language, Portuguese, with providing books and activities to include as much as possible. The staff are so friendly my little boy says it his friends house not nursery. I have just returned back to work and my second baby, a little girl, has just started in the baby room at 9 months old and has had no issues and is so happy no problems settling in.

Fantastic friendly staff. Really caring with the children. My daughter is so excited to go to nursery every morning. They play and engage with the children non stop (I don't how they have the energy!) Really friendly family run business, this makes a refreshing change from most corporate nurseries. Cannot recommend highly enough, very pleased mum.
