The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Asquith New Eltham Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith New Eltham 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 8 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 4.81 for Asquith New Eltham Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (188 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.81

  • 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 4.58 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith New Eltham Day Nursery is based on 8 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 13.8 positive Reviews (69 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 13.8 Target = 0.580

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

We've had a very positive experience with Asquith.

My son has bonded well with his key people over almost 2 years he's been at the nursery and they have clearly been fond of him too, which has been lovely for me to see. My son is thriving at the nursery - his talking is coming along really well and he's confident playing with other children, to give a few examples. I'm really glad that we decided to send our son here. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

Since my son has started nursery, there hasn't been a day whereby he hasn't wanted to attend. He first started being really shy around both teachers and other children. Within two weeks he already started making close relationships with children and teachers. Most days I pick him up he always has something exciting to tell me regarding his day. Teachers are always interacting with the children in various learning and playing activities.

It has been a really pleasant experience at New Eltham Day Nursery.
The way all the staff relate with my child has provided a good balance which has really helped him develop into a lovely boy who is intelligent, understands the reward for good behaviour and the consequence for not so good behaviour.
As he moves into main stream school (Reception) I know that the foundations laid here will help him thrive.
Thanks for your contribution to his development.

New Eltham is an amazing nursery, my son's need to learn us met to an outstanding standard and my son's knowledge and confidence has grown immensely.

My little boy is always happy to go to the nursery and is made to feel welcome by all. He has very strong bonds with all the excellent team, especially the dedicated and friendly managers.

From the settling in sessions, all practitioners were very attentive to my child's needs. This was my first nursery experience and I found management were very supportive. My child's learning and development has come on leaps and bounds and I am amazed at how confident my son is. The atmosphere is very creative and is so beautiful to see the bonds between children and the staff. The outdoor environment that is provided for children is very active and motivating.

My daughter has attended Asquith New Eltham for over two and a half years since she was 12 months old. We have always been extremely happy with the nursery and have got to know many members of staff well in that time. My daughter loves the nursery and talks fondly of staff and her friends there daily. It is clear to see how much the nursery has helped her to develop over the years and to also build in confidence. With school on the horizon for her in 12 months time, Asquith has been (and I'm sure will continue to be) the perfect environment to prepare her for "big school"!

Our child has attended this nursery for over six months. We have got to know and trust the staff very well over this time. We both feel very confident in them to look after, stimulate, educate, and nurture our little girl. She started nursery at only 9 months old.

The staff put so much effort into the activities. Every time I walk in, the children always look well cared for and engaged in activities or sleeping peacefully. Lots of singing for the 15 months group!

When I visited other nurseries, little things caught my eye that concerned me. But so far, Asquith new Eltham has been perfect.

The food was the best of the nurseries we visited. Food is very important to us, and we have a very wholesome diet at home.

Though the rooms are not the most beautiful, and gardens not the biggest compared with some nurseries, every inch of the nursery is put to great use, with every member of staff adding energy throughout the whole day. Very pleased to recommend this nursery to anyone.

This truly is an amazing nursery. My daughter started here at 13 months and absolutely loves it. There's hardly a day where she doesn't come home with something she's painted or created with the exceptional staff. My daughter is singing songs, starting to talk, and every week we notice a change in her development due to something she's learnt at nursery. The food is top notch, there is an amazing garden not just for the toddlers but even big children. The manager listens and deals promptly with any concerns. She is extremely approachable and her passion and kindness really translates and reflects on this nursery.

My son has been at New Eltham since we moved to the area 12 months ago. He has previously been in a small family run nursery where we lived and we were unsure how he would settle in. Our concerns were happily not an issue. The team were very welcoming to our son and us and we are very happy with his progression. he is turning into a great little man and his language, social skills and behaviour are improving on a weekly basis.

Really enjoys the interaction with staff and other children. Structured learning and exploration through play were challenged and developed her. Currently three days per week but thinking about extra days given her enjoyment and development.
