Reviews

8.4 Blue Butterfly Montessori has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.415)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Blue Butterfly Montessori 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Blue Butterfly Montessori in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 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 4.715 for Blue Butterfly Montessori is calculated as follows: ( (105 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.715

  • 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 3.7 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blue Butterfly Montessori 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.200

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

Lovely friendly nurturing environment. My son loved his time here. He started at 14 months and left at 4 years.

The staff genuinely care for the children and make the children and parents feel comfortable and happy.

Would absolutely recommend and have already enrolled by daughter.

Both our kids have attended Blue Butterfly. Our son has been there since he was 18 months and he's 4 now and just leaving to go to reception. Our daughter started at 11 months and is still there at 17 months. We love the staff there, who are very attentive yet professional. They have a great relationship with our kids and make them feel comfortable. The atmosphere is lovely, with great space available for the kids. We love the garden space. Ultimately very happy with the nursery and everything they offer.

Nice and easy going staff. Kids are taken very good care of. Vegetarian and nut free, so peace of mind. As a Montessori, they groom the kids ready to go to school. Not too expensive.

Excellent nursery. Staff are very caring and always smiling. They have made my son's nursery experience very positive. He was very shy when he first came, they have helped build his confidence immensely and encouraged independence. The facilities they provide are also lovely, very clean and spacious. I recommend it to all my friends.

My daughter has been attending the baby room at Blue Butterfly now for 3 months. I was very anxious to be parted from her at such a young age, but the staff team made me feel completely at ease, giving regular and detailed feedback and reassuring me of her confidence and happiness within the room. My daughter is very happy to attend nursery, smiling when she sees the staff team that work closely with her and often reaching for them before mummy is ready to say goodbye! She loves the extra curricular activities such as Tiny Mites and enjoys having free reign of the spacious room, laid out perfectly for curious little explorers! Since joining the baby room she has learnt to crawl and walk with a walker and we are sure this is due to the nursery space, facilities and encouragement from the staff. They are a caring, friendly team who show my daughter a lot of affection and love which as a parent of a young baby is one of the most important features.

My eldest son has been there since September 2013 when he was 10 months old. He is now in the "Pre School Room" where he has been for 2 months. I have been very happy with the education, learning and care that has been provided at nursery and I have been impressed with his progress and development during his time at Blue Butterfly. Within 2 weeks of starting in the "Pre School Room" I could already notice new vocabulary and language that he was now using at home. He is very happy and settled at nursery and loves all his friends and the staff. Each room he has been to was very good and we were always sad when he had to leave the room to move on. I am really impressed with the Daisy Club, they do really fun activities. It is often difficult to get my son to leave!
My youngest son started Blue Butterfly 2 months ago in the Baby Room. I was initially worried as there had been staff changes and all the staff who had looked after my eldest son had left. My youngest son has reflux and allergies. However, I have been really happy with how well he has settled and overwhelmed with the care and love he has been shown. I have been impressed with the new members of the Baby Room. We talk each time he goes into nursery, they work closely with me to ensure that they are looking after him as well as they can. They have tried very hard to make sure he is settled and comfortable and talk to me about new things they would like to try. I could not have asked for more!
Blue Butterfly have worked very hard to overcome the OFSTED rating. In my opinion it was unfair as I believe they go beyond what is expected of a nursery and really care about the children that attend there. They now have a Parent Nursery Association which was set up in October 2015 which allows us to feedback any comments we have as parents. The staff and key workers are amazing and do a brilliant job in making sure that nursery is a fun, loving and caring environment where my children are learning and feel safe.

My daughter has been there since 2012 when she was 11 months old and is now in the pre-school room (4 years old). Throughout her time she has grown in confidence and her knowledge and willingness to learn has been improving all the time. The nursery itself is very well equipped in each room and has a lovely garden to the rear. The teachers since baby room to pre-school have been fantastic and is one of the main reasons I would recommend it to other parents. They have always been friendly, helpful and have reported back progress to us very well. The dayshare email at the end of every day ensures we know what our daughter has been busy with all day. Our daughter will miss it very much when she has to leave for junior school next year!

Blue Butterfly nursery is a very friendly, safe and caring. I have three children, my eldest has been going from the age of 1, now 4 years and is in the "pre-school" class. My twins started when they were 13 months, in the baby room. In the first two months there were staff changes/leaving, which was upsetting initially, however the management managed and cover for the staff that had left very well.
All my three children are very happy going to nursery and are always smiling when going to nursery. All the staff are experienced and look after my children well. All the rooms have facilities and have age appropriate activities. It is very convenient for me to get to and parking is also available. Communication is very good - newsletters, parents meetings, day-share emails. Overall, I am a satisfied parent.

My daughter is 2 and a half years old and has been at Blue Butterfly Montessori since she turned one. Our experience has been very positive. The carers, particularly the key-workers, are warm, fun intelligent people who take a real interest in my daughter's development. The food is freshly made and the menu always looks delicious. The management are young and full of energy and very willing to listen to suggestions. The outdoor area is large and well designed. My older daughter went to a nursery in South Kensington which was Ofsted Outstanding and I have to say, our experience at Blue Butterfly has been superior. I hope Ofsted recognise this as their last inspections do not reflect our daily experience of the nursery.
