The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Cardiff Day Nursery & Pre-School 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Cardiff Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 7 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 4.718 for Asquith Cardiff Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.718

  • 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 4.686 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Cardiff Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on 7 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 10.2 Target = 0.686

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

Overall, I am happy with the nursery. My child only attends one day per week so I find this hard to build a strong relationship with my child's keyworker. I feel as though for the cost of the nursery, that more could be featured, for example, an organic menu. It would be nice for the children to have larger space and perhaps a different room for sleeping/playing, however, I understand that this is a restriction the nursery can't help with. Most importantly, my child is happy and I feel that my child is safe, which ultimately is all I can ask for.

Our son started attending Asquith at the beginning of the year when he was 10 months. He had 8 weeks of settling in sessions during which the staff were brilliant. They were flexible, understanding and reassuring to my son and me. I returned to work and my son started attending for 2 full days every week and he loves it. He gets excited as we get out of the car and always has a big smile on his face when I collect him. I love hearing about his day, the staff always make time to tell me what he's been doing.

Brilliant day nursery - they have fantastic caring, friendly, compassionate and professional staff. The activities are stimulating and educational and themed accordingly throughout the year. The settling in process in the under 2's room is tailored according to each family's needs which is very reassuring for the child(ren) and parents. The happiness of all the children is very evident by their behaviour is a testament to the hard work of the staff and their dedicated manager. Dietary requirements are dealt with efficiently. This is a small nursery which suits some but understandably not everyone, but that is what makes it unique. It is well worth the extra money, they even accept children in cloth nappies.

Our daughter really enjoys her time in the nursery this month. She has learnt lots of Christmas songs. We often see her doing the actions to songs she has learnt at the nursery. We are very happy with the standard of care she receives here.

We are thrilled with the consistent level of care that the nursery staff give our daughter. She learns so much and most importantly comes home happy and contented. Our daughter is making the transition into pre-school and the staff have been brilliant at both understanding her needs and challenging her to push herself on to the next step.

My daughter has had an amazing experience at this nursery. The learning and teaching facilities are fantastic. Having a qualified teacher is a huge advantage in this nursery in preparing the children for school. All the staff put 100% into the children and make you feel confident that they actually care about every single child.

We have a positive experience here. Although we were wondering if the nursery is for our son due to how upset he was this quickly changed as the staff established relationships. I have watched him out of sight and witnessed the positive enjoyment. It's a pleasure to see and I would recommend Asquith Cardiff Day Nursery to my friends.
