  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.637 for Asquith Stony Stratford Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (153 Excellents x 5) + (77 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 234 Ratings = 4.637

    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 child places. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered child places 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.

    The 4.86 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Stony Stratford Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 16 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 18.6 positive Reviews (93 registered child places ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 18.6 Target = 0.860

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

A great nursery when the staff work really hard to keep the children safe and happy. The online "Learning Book" is a great way to find out more about the children at nursery.

Nursery staff are all friendly and pleasant. Always a welcoming atmosphere. My daughter loves the girls and feels very much at home. Love the latest edition of digital learning journals - it's a great way to share her day with family as a working mum/dad. Overall, I've been extremely happy with Asquith and will be sad to say goodbye in September next year.

My son has been at this nursery since 2014. His care is excellent and he has progressed through each room and is about to start pre-school. Activities are varied and educational. Food is good quality and healthy.

The team at Stony Stratford have been great, my son has settled in well and they have been welcoming, attentive and very organised. They have listened to my concerns and I feel very happy that we have found my son a good nursery. He has a great time doing the activities and I feel happy that he is interacting better with other children too.

Both my children came to this nursery and we've always been more than happy with the care they've been given. It's such a big part of their lives and the team always work so hard to make it such an amazing experience. I'd like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to one of the staff, she's such an amazing care person, both my children have loved her.

It was an excellent experience for our son in this nursery. We still remember his first day in the nursery, he was so upset but day after day he became very happy and comfortable with his new friends and caring staff.

Attended the preschool graduation day, lovely occasion, well organised, good food as always, real family affair (good for working mums and dads too - being on a Saturday). My son has thoroughly enjoyed his time at nursery, it will be sad leaving.

I have found the nursery to be a positive experience for my daughter, they have been very supportive in helping her to settle putting her emotional needs first. My daughter has formed close bonds with staff and children. The manager is amazing and professional and has a magical way about her, and has a positive rapport with both staff, children and parents.

I love my son attending Asquith in Stony Stratford. I have complete peace of mind knowing he is there. The staff are wonderful. He enjoys the delicious meals they serve. My son seems to have progressed hugely since attending over the last couple of months and he only attends 2 days a week. The nursery is beautifully kept and all new and fresh. The only thing I would like is perhaps more communication and updates personally because I am not the one who drops and picks him up. I often don't have a clue if it's a special day at nursery. Even emails would be fab.

Amy, Online Marketing manager at Asquith Stony Stratford Pre-School & Day Nursery responded to this review on 27 Jan 2016:

Thank you for your kind review. We always value parents feedback and we understand that it can be frustrating for working parents when there are special days that you need to be prepared for. We will send you updates via email each month as well as the monthly newsletter which details our key dates as of today. If you have any further concerns, we are always here for you to call or pop in to discuss your child's care and progress.

The team/staff are very friendly and they helped my son during the settling in process. The nursery has the requirements my kid needs and it is located close to our home. All in all I am happy with the outcome.

My child took a little longer to settle in and as a result we decided to try again in a year. The staff have been lovely and have tried their best to help her settle. We will return when she is 2.

My daughter has attended Asquith Stony Stratford Pre-School & Day Nursery for two and a half years. The staff have been kind and supportive, they put me at ease and I was allowed to come in and stay with my daughter while she settled in. Meal times were organised. Children were encouraged to follow routines, sit at tables, wash hands at the things you would want (this has not been my experience with other providers.) The facilities for learning are excellent, we have had a complete renovation of the outdoor play space. The staff are trustworthy and the security of your child is great, proper locks and cameras on doors (again missing form other providers.)
