Daisy Chains Nursery provides a supportive learning environment for two- to five-year-olds where they can learn through play and exploration of the world around them. Adopting aspects of Reggio Emilia and the Montessori ethos, Daisy Chains offers a range of activities, both child- and adult-led, to enable children to develop in all areas of learning and development, as outlined by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

The nursery operates from one room for all children, but activities are tailored to best suit individual ages and stages of development. Children are frequently observed to assess how they are learning and developing. Parents are encouraged to share their views and information about their child’s behaviour and development at home to contribute to the assessments.

Children are provided with a morning and afternoon ‘rolling snack’ to encourage them to decide when they are hungry and ready for a snack. Lunch is considered a social event where independence is strongly encouraged. The food is balanced and healthy and special dietary requirements can be met.

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Daisy Chains Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Daisy Chains Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 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 4.917 for Daisy Chains Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.917

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 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 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Daisy Chains Nursery 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered child places ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.500

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

My son has been going to this nursery for just over a year now, and I couldn't be happier. When he started he found it extremely hard to detach himself from me, but all staff were there to support him and one of the staff took him to the side, sitting with him until he was ready to join in and play which didn't take long.
Now just over a year on he can't wait to get there. The staff are the best, I love being able to go and have a chat about what he's been doing all day. I feel I can talk to anyone of the staff about any concerns I have with my son. Friendly, welcoming, I'm so glad I picked this nursery and if you're looking for a place for your little one, just give them a call and go and have a look for yourself. 5* definitely.

Looking for a nursery in Ashford was a task but once I came across Daisy Chains the level of learning and vibe of the staff and professionalism made me feel comfortable to send my child here. He has excelled in his learning in many ways both independently and socially.

I would highly recommend any parent to give their child the opportunity to raw learning and amazing nursery care by the most amazing and understanding staff.

Worth taking this review on board I am so happy I found the perfect place for my son.
