Reviews

8.7 St Mary Magdalen Montessori Nursery School has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.662)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for St Mary Magdalen 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St Mary Magdalen Montessori Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.813 for St Mary Magdalen Montessori Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.813

  • 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 3.849 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Mary Magdalen Montessori Nursery School is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.349

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

My daughter has attended this very welcoming nursery since the term beginning after she turned 2 years old (she will soon be 4). She will be returning next term for her final year in September. The setting is lovely and the size and layout of the space works well. The staff are all fantastic and always warm and welcoming. The equipment provided is very good and the nursery is kept very clean and safe. The nursery always looks well decorated with the children's artwork and term projects. My daughter has done really well and enjoys all the extra activities which are: French, music, cooking, dance and football. She has made some really good friends there too. I highly recommend this nursery and will be really sad when my daughter leaves to go to school.

Excellent nursery I highly recommend my son attended here for two years. He started as a very shy child and with the love and care of the staff really helped with his confidence with other children and adults. The staff are very welcoming and very professional willing to help with any questions and go above and beyond to facilitate this.

E Maitland, Principal at St Mary Magdalen Montessori Nursery School responded to this review on 06 Jul 2017:

Your son was the most lovely boy, kind, polite, smiley and intelligent - he was a pleasure to teach. Thank you so much for our review.

During the year that my daughter has spent at the nursery, I have been hugely impressed by how much she has progressed in the staff's warm, engaging and enthusiastic care. Since the first day, when she immediately felt comfortable in the welcoming and friendly environment there, she has run into the nursery every day. She has made many friends and has grown hugely in confidence. Each day she comes home and talks about what she's been doing - from ballet, cooking, football, to French or music - she has never been bored. Unfortunately, due to a change in circumstances, she is leaving the nursery this year, but I know she will really miss both the teachers and her friends, and I know she will have many happy memories of her time spent there.

Elizabeth Maitland, Principal at St Mary Magdalen Montessori Nursery School responded to this review on 06 Jul 2017:

We loved having your beautiful daughter, she came on in leaps and bounds. She is a kind, intelligent little girl who is loved by everyone, we will miss her. Thank you for your kind review.

My son has enjoyed being at St Mary Magdalen Montessori since the day he joined and continues to do so a year later. He started when he was 2 years old and the staff were absolutely fantastic in welcoming him and providing him with a warm, loving, caring and fun environment. My key was always that he was happy and had fun at such a young age but I have to say how impressed I am with the way they inject learning and development into the day without him even knowing. He has come on leaps and bounds. He talks about his day from the minute he gets home and during holiday time, he can't wait to get back to his friends and the teachers. A lovely relaxed, friendly environment and as a mother, I feel very confident that my son is happy, well looked after and being taught to a high standard.
