  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 27 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.725 for Asquith Peckham Rye Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (256 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 335 Ratings = 4.725

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Peckham Rye Day Nursery is based on 27 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 16.2 positive Reviews (81 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 27 Reviews ÷ 16.2 Target Reached = 1

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

My daughter started here at the beginning of the year and has settled very quickly due to the lovely staff in the baby and toddler room. She adores her key worker and is simulated by the environment/toys provided.

This nursery provides a nice childcare service with a long day which is helping me with my job hours.
Very friendly and helpful staff is looking after my child very well while I am working. It is a bit expensive but as soon as my child is safe and happy there and can carry on with my job then it is the most perfect nursery for us.

My daughter has just moved up to the nursery room at Asquith. We have been pleased with the transition and have been impressed with how smoothly it has gone. It is sometimes slightly chaotic at morning drop off, but I feel that is expected as this is the busiest time.

We were very impressed by the care and attention taken to settle our daughter into the nursery, before she joined and during the critical first weeks. The manager and staff were tremendously understanding and accommodating. They made every effort to welcome our daughter and make her feel at home. She loves the outside space, which they spend a lot of time in and enjoys all the activities they do each day.

A homely but very structured feel which has helped my little one to be such a confident boy. He is happy coming to nursery and has loads to share about the staff, children and his day.the new learning room has been very popular with children enjoying a variety of experience helping with life skills like cooking, making observations etc.
I cannot compliment the staff and the chef. Everyone works as a family.

The staff at Asquith are excellent. Our daughter is very happy and it is obvious that the staff really care for her and all the children. She really enjoys playing outside and all the craft activities. They are really helping her with her writing and it is great to see this developing, so she will be ready for school.

Our family has been using this nursery for four and a half years. Both daughters have loved their time here. It's safe, warm and welcoming environment. The staff are friendly and approachable, always giving honest and detailed feedback. The facilities are great and the food is exceptional. We'll be sad next year when our youngest starts school.

My daughter has really grown over her time at Asquiths. She eats and plays well and clearly enjoys her time. Since the change in feedback sheets, I do not have as much visibility as before on her day as at pick up time everyone is clearing up, and does not have time to feedback. I am not concerned at all, it is just nice for me to hear about her activities.

The staff at Asquith have been exceptional in looking after both my children from 10 months up to reception.

They make everyday fun and engaging and I really feel my children had an advantage when they started school in both social and academic skills.

I also rate the meals supplied very highly - the chef does a brilliant job - I wish we could get takeaways now.

I just went with my sister to drop my niece and I was amazed at the ambience of the nursery. It was clean, smelled fresh and the staff were so welcoming. They asked if I wanted to come and see my nieces room and then showed me her peg, and spoke about things she has been doing.
The manager also looked friendly and took time to talk about new initiatives in the nursery.
I felt like I needed to be a child again as the rooms looked very inviting. I spoke to my sister and she too is extremely happy.

I am very happy with my daughter's recent progress. The staff are friendly and professional. The most important part is that I feel my daughter is in a safe place. My only disappointment is that the garden area is not very large and this is due to the closure of a part that will need to go under construction. Children are not using the slide and the swing because of this. I hope they will fix this soon.
