The Review Score of 4.8 (maximum of 10) for Dulwich Montessori Nursery School 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Dulwich Montessori Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 Dulwich Montessori Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 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:
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.
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.
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Dulwich Montessori Nursery School is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0
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 flourished since starting here. The nursery provides a variety of engaging Montessori activities and he is clearly learning a lot whilst he is there. The wonderful Sydenham Woods is right on the doorstep and we love that the nursery takes him out on Forest School activities and we have loved to see how he plays so imaginatively in nature since doing this. The nursery also run French language sessions and I've been staggered by how much our son can remember. The nursery know exactly 'where he is at' and clearly respond very well to him as an individual. He constantly tells us how much he enjoys it there. The nursery has also been superb at communicating with us, we get daily updates (I don't do pick up and really value this written communication). The staff have been swift to identify any concerns and worked well with us to nip these in the bud - as a teacher myself I couldn't ask for anything more. We also get lovely positive feedback too. This 'partnership' between us and the staff is so valuable and has really helped. It's been a great decision to send him there, he has blossomed into a caring and gentle young boy, full of confidence. Couldn't recommend it more highly (and I'm quite picky).
