Children join the Oakfields Kindergarten in the term in which they are three years old and usually on a full-time basis. Their parents usually have the intention for their child to remain with the school through to 11 years.
At Oakfields, they understand the formative years of a child’s education are ones of excitement, exploration and discovery, where they will begin to make friends, experience new opportunities and learn about a world beyond the secure confines of their immediate home life. Children at Oakfields enjoy a huge range of activities and the spacious, purpose-designed Kindergarten offers plenty of green space and endless opportunities for indoor and outdoor free flow play and learning. As well as a large classroom, enclosed playground and outdoor learning area, the children enjoy access to the beautiful adjoining orchard, the extensive grounds and other areas.

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 4.917 for Oakfields Montessori School is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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:
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.
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.
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 3.119 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oakfields Montessori School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.119

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Rachel O (Mother of Child) on Thursday 13 April 2017. Relates to July 2016.
I chose Oakfields for my eldest child as I felt the staff were passionate about children. I loved the atmosphere of kindergarten both outside and inside where children are encouraged to learn independently as well as in pairs or groups. My son left Oakfields with lots of confidence as well as a sound grasp of phonics, language, numbers and a genuine desire to learn about the world around him. He still talks about it fondly. I'm sending my 2nd child in September 2017 and my 3rd the following year. It's the right choice for us all as we know our children are being cared for by experienced teachers led by a very proactive management team. As parents, we've always felt able to speak to all of the kindergarten teachers about any of our concerns or worries and this, in turn, has been reciprocated. In addition, anything positive or rewarding our child had achieved was celebrated at kindergarten too. We loved using the tapestry app to see what our son had been doing that day.
