  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith North Weald Pre-school & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 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 4.706 for Asquith North Weald Pre-school & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.706

  • 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 4.584 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith North Weald Pre-school & Day Nursery is based on 9 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 15.4 positive Reviews (77 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 15.4 Target = 0.584

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

This nursery has been amazing. I was really worried about leaving my daughter and going back to work but the nursery offered 8 weeks of free settling in sessions which gave me time to get to know the staff and plenty of time for my baby to feel happy and safe here, so by the time I returned to work from my maternity leave I was confident in the care my child was receiving which took a huge pressure off.
The equipment and activities are brilliant and my daughter seems like she has lots of fun, she is always smiling when I collect her.
The menu has such a big variety and is full of healthy meal options.
All the staff and management go out of their way to make sure my daughter is happy and our needs are met.
I wouldn't dream of putting my children anywhere else!

When my Granddaughter first started at the day nursery she was a shy, quiet little girl that did not talk much, largely due to her glue ears. During that time she had undergone an operation to insert grommets into her ears in the hope that her hearing would improve. Within a few short weeks at the nursery her confidence had improved, her vocabulary had increased tenfold, and had become fully potty trained. She is now a happy, confident and friendly little girl that absolutely loves going to nursery every day.

The staff are all very friendly. They all take the time to recognise me and my daughter and say hello. The staff are very caring and attentive to my daughter and ensure she is comforted. They report back everyday of activities. Few teething and settling problems but handled very well by management and staff. Quick to resolve and respond. Head office could improve, however.

This nursery is lovely. My son was really unsettled when he first attended, but the girls in the room and the management team made us both feel really welcome and he soon started to settle. The activities they provide are great and always look fun. The environment is warm and inviting.
