Reviews

9.1 Norfolk Lodge Montessori Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.080)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Norfolk Lodge Montessori Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Norfolk Lodge Montessori Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 10 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 4.723 for Norfolk Lodge Montessori Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (90 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.723

  • 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 4.357 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Norfolk Lodge Montessori Nursery is based on 10 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 28 positive Reviews (140 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 28 Target = 0.357

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

This nursery is by far one of the best in North London and Herts. The staff are amazing, kind, caring and enthusiastic. Norfolk Lodge is such a lovely setting with the house and the garden, it ticks all my boxes. This is my third child, so attending a nursery full of fun, learning and laughter is brilliant.

My youngest daughter is shortly finishing at Norfolk Lodge because she is due to start school. All the teachers have been an amazing. They really care about the children. They have been taught so many things in a very fun way. Both my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed their time at nursery and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Norfolk Lodge to other parents.

I have been thoroughly impressed and pleased with the calibre of staff that have been involved in my daughter's overall development.
She has been with Norfolk Lodge since 11 months old and I am so pleased how she has become incredibly independent and looking to learn more and more.

I have sent both my children to Norfolk Lodge and my experience both times has been positive. The teachers are very professional yet nurturing at the same time. This is very reassuring as a parent to know that your child is in good hands. They offer a broad range of activities for the children and their methods of teaching are very effective.
The grounds are beautiful and the outside play area and garden are substantial in size. Safety is of paramount importance to the nursery and this is evident from all the notices on display. I would definitely recommend (and have recommended) Norfolk Lodge to others.

We are very happy with the staff and their teaching at the nursery. My daughter's vocabulary has increased as has her confidence. The teachers are all very friendly, they are helpful, smiling and very approachable.
My daughter comes home very happy every afternoon and is singing and talking about her day at nursery and what she has learnt.
I am very impressed with the fact that the teachers push the children according to their ability. I would highly recommend the nursery.

I would not hesitate in recommending Norfolk Lodge. From the headmistress, office staff to the teachers in the classrooms, they are all professional and friendly. It's a loving environment and the teachers are amazing. My eldest learnt so much during her time here. My youngest has now started too. It's a stimulating and caring environment. Children are very well looked after. I was surprised at how significant the price increase is.

My daughter has been at the nursery for almost 2 years now. We have seen her flourish both socially and academically with her letters and numbers as well as her general knowledge. The teachers are always approachable and take care to get to know all the children individually. They take pride in their work. The children are learning so much without even realising because they are having fun. The nursery atmosphere helps the children develop close friendships. My daughter looks forward to going to nursery every day. I will be recommending the nursery to all my friends.

Our child started this school in September 2015. She has since moved up to the Montessori classroom and has been there for 4 months. Her knowledge has grown exponentially asks questions on topics that we have not covered at home. Her ability to work quietly on her own as well as explore the environment around her without fear or hesitation has also grown. She has become even more confident in her ability and capacity to learn.
