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 4.833 for Montessori Des Sourires is calculated as follows: ( (30 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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.

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

We live around the area. This nursery is a first choice because it provides French bilingual education and Montessori on the top of the normal nursery services. So it was really an obvious choice for us even if we are not French. Our child thrives and is making very good progress. Very family friendly with loving staff.

My daughter joined the nursery at 11 months and is thriving and incredibly happy at almost 3 years old now. The staff are very friendly at the nursery and my daughter absolutely loves them. Not only do they give the usual daily feedback, they are helpful in guiding a new parent with areas such as potty training, sleep problems, guidance on which areas your child is or is not progressing in.
The small nature of the nursery means all the kids and carers know each other well and get on with each other well too (often with shrieks of delight when they arrive one by one in the mornings)! The owners are very attentive and listen to parents, taking on-board any suggestions. Given my daughter's progression and happiness at the nursery I would highly recommend Montessori Des Sourires to any new parent looking for nursery. The settling in period was incredibly comforting and taken very seriously for a new parent too, which I found very supportive. My daughter will happily stay there until she is old enough for school.
