Reviews

8.3 Manor Grove Montessori has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.313)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Manor Grove Montessori is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Manor Grove Montessori in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 out of 5 from 1 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 5 for Manor Grove Montessori is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.313 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Manor Grove Montessori is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 3.2 Target = 0.313

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

You can't find a better place. They are flexible, caring and always brilliant with the children. They learn a lot through the Montessori system but also there is enough time to play. They have their own chef, so fresh homemade food every day. Forest School is every week with programmes and a lovely outdoor space where children can play and relax. Staff are fantastic and lovely, always the right tone for the kids. It is not overcrowded like other nurseries. The nursery has plenty of space for children to play.

Manor Grove is as close to my perfect childcare setting as you could get. It combines the Montessori approach with a very small scale setting to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment with a close-knit, family feel - all the benefits of a childminder setting with none of the drawbacks! Staff are warm, kind and experienced and there is very low turnover compared with bigger nurseries. Excellent quality home-cooked meals and snacks are provided and children eat in sociable groups, learning to serve themselves and each other, and to tidy up and wash their own cup.

My older daughter attended for preschool hours and I had no hesitation at all in sending my younger daughter when I returned to work. My youngest has some developmental delays and difficulties which the staff have accommodated with enthusiasm and creativity, liaising with our physiotherapist and occupational therapist who were equally impressed by the nursery.

The forest school provision is a lovely addition to the range of activities for the older children and the setting next to farmland is ideal for the nursery's focus on observing and interacting with nature. The children go on walks, explorations, local visits and feel very connected to the surrounding village.

Both my children have thrived at Manor Grove and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
