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 4.537 for Rose House Montessori Forest Hill is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.537

  • 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 4.857 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rose House Montessori Forest Hill is based on 6 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.857

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

We’ve had a really good experience at Rose House. Staff are caring and professional with a real interest in the children’s development. Would have been good to have done another forest school.

I would highly recommend Rose House Montessori Nursery and School. My two children attend and Year 2 and Reception and I am extremely happy with their enthusiasm and confidence since attending. They both love going to school, they really enjoy learning and most importantly they learn at their pace with the whole Montessori ethos. It’s a great location, staff are understanding and friendly and couldn’t ask for a better school.

Rose House is a pure Montessori setting where each child is followed as an individual and is helped to grow holistically at his/her own pace. The quality of care is well beyond the standard, the teachers and staff are all well prepared and share the same vision which they apply and implement working consistently as a team. Communication and partnership with parents is excellent. Highly recommended.

I am extremely thoughtful of the environments I choose to let my children spend time in. Rose House is a nurturing, secure and stimulating environment and have confidence in the staff's ability to bring out the best in my children, promoting their strengths and supporting their weaknesses.

Our daughter struggled with separation from me when she first joined, and all the teachers were absolutely amazing at knowing how to make her feel at ease and supporting us as a family to aid her to settle in well. It did take time, patience and encouragement, as well as their understanding of her individual needs, which means that we now have a daughter that loves school. She has really grown in confidence, is able to communicate well and expresses how she feels without frustration. When I collect her she constantly tells me how happy she is. She will describe all the activities she has done, of which there are many. I enjoy receiving the activity logs from her teachers with photos and a comment on what she has done/learnt at school that day. She is encouraged to use her independence, which has shown at home, where she likes to dress herself and take control of household chores. In a nutshell, I couldn't be happier as she is happy, and growing and learning each day with the school's support.

The learning is excellent and I truly believe in the Montessori philosophy. My only comment would be around the communication. As we are not always informed in a timely manner about the changes made within the school organisation.

Calm, caring and nurturing environment.
My daughter has loved going to Rose House from day one. We could not be happier with our choice of nursery. We have met a lovely community of like-minded parents and pleasant children.

Both kids are super happy and always speak of the staff well. Rose House has become such an important part of their lives that they miss it on weekends and school holidays. Thank you for giving our children such a wonderful time.

My daughter has been attending Rose House, Forest Hill since late 2015. Rose House has provided an ideal environment for learning and care that had enabled her to grow holistically as a child.
In a carefully managed EYFS environment, she was encouraged to explore various day-to-day concepts and tools/crafts - simple things - from utensils/pencils, arts, etc to foster her yearning to learn and grow at her pace and own intuition.
Her learning acumen, independence and sense of consideration for others and underpinning concepts of right/wrong has been inculcated, nurtured and expanded over the terms. I must say I have been most happy with how she has been looked after.
I'd definitely recommend Rose House to fellow parents/friends.
