  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.497 for Mace Montessori Nursery School (Fortune Green) is calculated as follows: ( (94 Excellents x 5) + (80 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.497

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Mace Montessori Nursery School (Fortune Green) is based on 11 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 9 Target Reached = 1

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

My wife and I have full confidence in the staff and curriculum at Mace Montessori Nursery School. Our daughter started there at 11 months. She enjoys her time there and is happy with the teachers and practitioners. The processes and operational staff are thorough and manage communications well. We've been very pleased with our experience and are glad our daughter enjoys her time there every day.

Mace Montessori in Fortune Green has been the best choice for our little one. It is a small nursery but what makes this place even better is the staff - they are very professional, helpful and caring. Also, their way of teaching is so comprehensive and my kid loves them. The Spanish and yoga classes are a plus and when the weather allows, they also make an effort to take the kids outside. We had our latest catch up on our kid’s development and what a great impression we had! Thanks Mace Montessori - From a happy mom.

My daughter has been going to Fortune Green from 4 months. Full time from 6 months. She is 1 in April 2018.
Honestly, she flaps in excitement when we take her into nursery and flaps when we collect her. I can’t cook so I’m grateful that she gets fed very well and a variety by their in-house chef. She loves her veg and fruit! Her monthly development milestones are mainly thanks to the staff from clapping hands to a song, peek-a-boo, making gestures, crawling, putting objects into a container etc...the list just goes on.
You see, I’m surprised every day. She is good, smart, enjoys routine, so happy at home and outside, active, loves being independent and shows kindness. I try my best to follow their methods at home with their advice, reading her daily log and weekly updates from her personal page on their website and of course from following her. Not only my daughter is learning new things, I am too. 40 hours of her life per week is at Fortune Green and I’m the one who is grateful to the nursery.

My son started in this nursery when he was 5 months old and he is now 2 years. He is our first child so it was not easy to find the right place when I decided to go back to work.
We are very happy with Mace Montessori nursery and they exceeded our expectations.
The staff is very attentive and careful (this is what you look when you leave your baby of 5 months!) and we adhere also to the Montessori approach which gives the freedom to the child and let him grow at his own rhythm.
There are also a lot of activities that help to develop them. And a secured website where you can see all that they are doing during the day with nice pictures.
A big thanks to all this great team!

My daughter started nursery in May 2017 when was only 10 months old. She's now been moved to the Toddler's room and continues to be very happy and the stimulation and freedom to explore has really contributed to her development I think.
Staff are multicultural, friendly and warm which is the most important to me. My daughter loved her when she was in the baby room. Management is hands-on and very responsive.

I recommend this nursery to all parents. It is a fantastic setting where all your child's needs will be met. All the staff are fully qualified as well as having different qualifications in place. There is a chef who caters for all the children on site and caters for all children who have dietary requirements.

We are very happy with this nursery. The staff are caring and attentive. Our daughter loves it. She started at 9 months and the settling in period was carefully managed. The activities are always varied and fun. They help the children explore their environment and the staff are committed to the development of all the children.

I couldn't recommend Mace Montessori more highly - our child has been really happy there and has been well taken care of since he was a baby. The staff are really caring and they organise great learning for the children.

The staff are attentive and caring. My baby was so happy to go to school and came back home always with a smile on his face. The activities are very stimulating for the children and given the proximity to the park, there is plenty of outdoor space too. My son has blossomed since starting this nursery.

My 2-year-old daughter loves attending the Mace Montessori Fortune Green Nursery. She walks right in when I drop her off. The staff are really caring, enthusiastic, and motivated. They are genuinely keen to do what is best for each child and offer varied activities for all. It is a small nursery which we love, as the care is personalised and tailored to each child's needs and interests. The nursery has a really nice community feel which is so lovely. My daughter only attends part time, yet she learns a lot from her carers and from the other children around her at the nursery. Overall, a fantastic environment to be part of for my little one!

Both my wife and I saw massive improvements compared to how the nursery was managed before the new manager arrived. We have always been very happy with all the staff – they’re all professional and lovely – but we felt that the nursery lacked organisation and control.

Since the new manager arrived, we noticed small improvements almost weekly: the material on the notice board is now well displayed and informative - previously the space was poorly used. The communication with the office is heaps better. The sign in/out forms are now clearly labelled and easy to sign. I know that some are small aspects but I think every little bit contributes to send a better message to parents. So I’d say that overall it feels like a very different (improved) place – no doubt about it.

Our son was always happy to attend and felt welcome and loved.

A big thank you and keep up the good work!

What I like is that the nursery is small and children of all ages play together some of the time. Children eat together and know all the members of staff. It feels like a family. I also very much like the facilities, it is one airy big room with high ceilings and a separate sleep room. Staff are great, very positive and motivated too, I put good (not excellent) for the facilities because there is no outdoor space. Having said that, the children go for walks in the nearby green and playground and develop knowledge aboutlife outside. Overall I rate the nursery as excellent, but find it expensive.
