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 5 for Montagu Community Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.45 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Montagu Community 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.200

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

Montague Nursery is a fantastic place for our children to attend as they grow, develop and learn in their early years, the staff are dedicated to giving our children the best possible care and meeting each child's needs. I am a single father of four young children who all attend Montague Monday to Friday, all staff and management at the nursery have always been very supportive of my whole family from the beginning they are there to listen and give guidance or help when needed, they are also very flexible, especially in certain circumstances. Most importantly my children really love the time they spend at Montague and they all have great relationships with their key workers and all staff. I feel my children really are receiving the best possible start in life.
I cannot thank the management and staff enough for all their continuous support, thank you all very much.

My son went to Montagu Nursery from the age of 2 and unfortunately, he had to leave earlier this month, as he is due to go to reception in September.
I cannot recommend this nursery enough, my son loved it so much and was sad to leave. Each and every one of the staff are lovely, caring and helpful. My son came on leaps and bounds with his education. This nursery is a fun, happy and very enjoyable place for child and parent. Always made to feel welcome and very friendly.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
