Reviews

9.5 The Montessori People has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.517)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for The Montessori People is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Montessori People in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 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 4.954 for The Montessori People is calculated as follows: ( (103 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.954

  • 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 4.563 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Montessori People is based on 9 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.563

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

The Montessori People is a special nursery and has been part of my family's life for the past 7 years (2 children). Our paths met by accident as my daughter's previous nursery closed down and her adventure at Montessori People began. This was one of the most fortuitous events that has happened to me. My children's development has been amazing. They have come on leaps and bounds through skills they have acquired through the Montessori syllabus which has prepared them well for their next challenge of primary school. I can't speak highly enough of the staff who are caring, attentive and clearly love their work. The staff's enthusiasm for the children's development is clear to see and it will be a really sad day when my child leaves for the next stage in their life to not see the staff again. I cannot praise this nursery enough and I would urge any parents who want their child to get the best start in life is to seriously consider The Montessori People.

Our little boy started at the Montessori people in March 2017 when I went back to work. After 9 months off on maternity leave, I was terrified of leaving him with 'strangers'. I and my partner went to view a lot of different nurseries but I was never sure that any of them were right. A few friends of ours have children who go to the Montessori people and all of them recommended it, no one had a bad word to say. We went for a look around before registering and the staff were more than happy for us to do that. After registering, we went for a few hours taster sessions where I could leave my baby and go back for him a couple of hours later. I was worse than he was! He absolutely loved it and still does. The staff are lovely with him and us, he is more than happy to go to them on a morning and is sometimes reluctant to come away on an evening, he is having to much fun! I would highly recommend the Montessori people, they are brilliant!

My son has been attending the Montessori People for 2 years, he loves going to nursery and I feel very confident leaving him each day. He has made lots of friends and I feel the staff have really brought him on with regards to his development.

My little girl has been attending this nursery since 5 months old. All staff are fantastic and always extremely friendly and polite. My little girl has come on leaps and bounds while being in babies and toddlers can't wait to see how she progresses throughout the rest of the rooms.

My son loves going to nursery! He's been attending since he was 6 months old. The staff are genuinely caring and very knowledgable. Excellent communication and my son has come on leaps and bounds. We love to hear about his day when we collect him and we know he'll always have a big grin on his face.

Both of my children attend this nursery, my son joined later on in Tweenies and was brought on so much from his previous nursery. He was challenged and enjoyed the structure of the day more. In pre-school he has gained so much confidence and has gone from strength to strength with his writing, numbers and colours. All of the staff are really knowledgeable and helpful and always available for questions, the handover is comprehensive and any incidents falls etc are reported to parents immediately. My little girl started in the baby room, where all of the staff are great at dealing with the separation. She is growing each time she goes and getting more and more confident and wanting to do her workbook with staff

Can not find a fault with this place. It's the only place I am happy to leave my child and know that they are in the best hands possible. The learning from such an early age is incredible, they provide great food and are the friendliest team imaginable.

The nursery was incredibly supportive during the challenging time of settling our child into nursery. I believed they went above and beyond to make him feel at home until he eventually settled of his own accord. Since then he has developed significantly through the efforts of the nursery staff on his twice weekly visits. He is often coming home with something he's helped make and the nursery really does foster the values of education and family their brochures describe.

My daughter has attended The Montessori People since she was 4 months old and has really enjoyed her time here. The staff have been exceptional throughout her time here and I can't thank them enough for the difference they have made to our lives. They have always gone above and beyond and she is leaving after 4 years to go to school as a confident, polite and intelligent young lady.
