The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Golders Green 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Golders Green in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 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 4.738 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Golders Green is calculated as follows: ( (62 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.738

  • 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 3.819 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Golders Green 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 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.319

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

My experience has been amazing. The vibe is warm, loving and I believe the care to be real. My son is happy to be there and happy when I fetch him. The staff answer every question I have and they express in their actions. The care of my child is of great importance and I appreciate that so much.
I am so lucky we found this nursery.

Initially I was very nervous about leaving my daughter at a nursery for long periods of time, to our surprise and from the initial open day, the staff went well beyond their way to listen to our fears, address our concerns and genuinely get to know our daughter so that by the time she started nursery, she was well adjusted and comfortable in the setting. The settling-in days were vital in this process and allowed all of us to get used to the big change in our life. The hands-on approach of everyone including her key worker, the nursery manager and owner has meant her father and I have been able to fully trust and feel at ease that she is well looked after. We have been very fortunate in finding a nursery that meets all our needs and we are grateful for the time and energy that is spent to support our family in this transition.

A warm, cosy and bright little setting with a fantastic team working together to ensure my child's development and well-being. My little girl loves it and settled in very smoothly which gave me the reassurance that she is happy and well cared for. Keep up the great work Monkey Puzzle.

I will be returning to work next month and was apprehensive about leaving my 8-month old daughter in a nursery. I went to see Monkey Puzzle Golders Green on the recommendation of a friend whose daughter started going there a couple of months ago.

I loved the warm welcoming feeling of the nursery and felt like the staff genuinely enjoyed caring for the kids. The kids also looked happy- always a good sign!

The facilities looked good and I particularly liked the fact that I would get an online progress report of my child's development and progress. My daughter will be joining at the end of the month and I think she will really enjoy it.

This is an excellent nursery, we have had to change nurseries 3 times and Monkey Puzzle has been great with settling in my very shy daughter in a calm and comfortable setting. The really friendly staff have been extremely accommodating with the settling in period, as my daughter can be a challenge. Nothing but praise for this nursery and the staff.
