Reviews

8.2 Fen Drayton Montessori Nursery has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.176)

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Fen Drayton Montessori Nursery 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fen Drayton Montessori Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.787 for Fen Drayton Montessori Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.787

  • 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 3.389 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Fen Drayton Montessori 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.139

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

Our boys joined the nursery in November 2016 and have settled in brilliantly. They were made to feel welcome by all staff and we instantly felt assured that we had made the right decision.
Staff are professional, caring and know our children well. Daily communication is excellent and feedback at parents evening was useful and very positive.
There are a variety of activities and resources for the children which have encouraged them to be more independent, try new things and become confident boys.
Thank you to all the staff for all your hard work and commitment.

The staff are very professional and very understanding regarding our child's needs. My child feels happy and has bonded well with the staff. She is becoming more confident and more sociable and also very independent. I am very particular about hygiene and have not had any issues regarding this so far. The staff has also been very helpful at accommodating requests for extra hours at short notice. I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone.

My daughter started at the nursery in Jan 15, she settled in instantly and has always been happy. The staff are all kind and caring and my child talks highly of them all. She is very confident and is flourishing under their care. I work shifts and my husband is self-employed so our work patterns change from week to week. She has always been able to facilitate last minute sessions and is always very flexible which has been invaluable to us. I talk highly of the nursery to anyone who listens! And would definitely recommend the nursery to others.

The care and consideration that has been shown to both of our children has been excellent, with both children adoring their key workers. Despite our habit of making last minute changes and requests everyone is always extremely accommodating. Our only minor concern recently has been the staff turnover, however, we are aware that this is something that is hard to control.

I have two children at the nursery and both have thrived under the guidance of the staff. I have found the staff to be very supportive of the children and parents and other practical advice. My children often don't want to go home when I pick them up, and that has to be the best recommendation.

Amazing staff who supported my son throughout his 3 years at the nursery, also very supportive towards myself with any concerns and advice. Our son has learnt so much through his time at the nursery and pre-school, he has developed his social skills and crossed many milestones in his abilities and development.

The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, and they all enjoy their jobs and time helping the children learn and develop new skills. The nursery are brilliant at supporting us within our jobs. I am a teacher and we have had a term time only contract at the nursery which has meant I can spend the school holidays with my son when I am off as well.
Due to being such a success with our first son we have already signed our second son up to join and he is only 6 weeks old! This nursery and all the staff have been amazing and we are going to miss them a lot now that our son will be starting school in September.

Now have 3rd child at Fen's setting. After many staff changes things seem to have settled and very impressed with current staff. Pre-school is very stimulating and educational. Youngest is just settling in 2-3 room. Early days but settling okay.

Fantastic nursery. All staff are caring and understanding. They really actively encourage all aspects of learning and development. My little boy really enjoys attending which is such peace of mind that he is so happy and content. The staff/manager was flexible during a very difficult personal family bereavement. The menu and food is very good and well balanced and varied.
