Asquith Hendon Pre-School & Day Nursery provides a welcoming and homely atmosphere for children to thrive in.

The nursery, rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in February 2017, has benefited from a refit. All the rooms are decorated and furnished in natural colours and contain handmade wooden toys and furniture, whilst the pre-school is an ICT hub full of modern technology.

The nursery room is big and vibrant to encourage both learning and play, whilst the pre-school children enjoy the freedom of choosing when to go into their own garden from their room. The pre-schoolers also have their own interactive whiteboard and touch-screen computer.

The ‘learning through play’ approach is used throughout all nurseries and gives children the freedom to make choices on activities.

All meals are prepared freshly on-site and fresh fruit, vegetable purees and main meals are provided. The garden is divided into age specific areas, although children are free to explore different areas too.

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Hendon Pre-School & Day 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Hendon Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.898 for Asquith Hendon Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (203 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.898

  • 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 Hendon Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 17 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 14.6 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.

As a full time working parent I wanted to choose a nursery over a nanny because I wanted to know that my children were being taken care of in a safe and secure environment by caring, high quality and vetted staff, that was also practical logistically.
My two children have attended Hendon Day nursery almost entirely full time since they each turned one year old. My oldest has really blossomed and gets to play with other children, learn and do a myriad of activities that I would never even think of at home. My youngest settled so quickly and doesn’t even look back when dropped off. He just loves it. The food is nutritious and they definitely eat more enthusiastically at nursery than at home. The setting is cosy and full of activities and choice.
Above all, there is strong leadership and the staff are excellent; they really care for the children. They support the individual needs of the children, through key developmental milestones or personal challenges that come with growing up.

My daughter who is now three, started at the nursery when she was 6 months old. The staff are really caring and focused on helping the children develop their physical and mental abilities. I have always trusted the nursery, knowing that my daughter would be safe and happy.

My child has been attending Asquith Hendon for about a year now. I'm proud of his development. He took a while to settle in at first but a year on, he thoroughly enjoys himself and is happy when I pick him up. He learns new things every day and the staff are so attentive. Every one of the staff at this nursery really does a great job and are so happy and friendly. The manager is great if there is ever an issue or a concern, no matter how small it's dealt with quickly and efficiently, nothing is ever too much trouble for the team. The staff are all very approachable and attentive. I have three children (my previous did not go here but I wish they did!) and I believe Asquith has offered the best care, a safe and fun place for child development and provides peace of mind.
I highly recommend Asquith and I would not hesitate to send your child.

My son is about to graduate this summer and start school in September. We have been exceptionally lucky that we found Asquith Hendon Nursery. They have nurtured him and helped him grow personally, academically and socially. The staff and teachers are very kind, caring and really take any concerns seriously. We will be sad to say goodbye to everyone there but it's a great sign to me that our son is excited to start big boy school.

I have 2 children and both have attended Asquith Hendon Day Nursery since they were 10 months old. Both of them have flourished there. They have formed strong bonds with their key workers, who have all got to know them as well as a parent does. Their individuality has been seen, without any need for me to ask for greater input, and as a parent, we are kept well informed. They have both formed great friendships in the classes, as a marker of the success of their growth and independence in social environments. The learning opportunities are so many, and they both come home full of the chatter about their projects and what they have been playing and engaging in. The nursery is exceptionally well managed. Attention to the children's safety is simultaneously both mountainous in its paperwork, but equally as reassuring. The nursery has been flexible with extra sessions to accommodate my changing work needs through courses and training, and this support to my career has been invaluable.

Our daughter has been attending the nursery for over a year now. The atmosphere at the nursery is very homely, the staff and management are very welcoming and they really took the time to get to know us personally. Whenever I pass the manager in the office she is always chatty, warm yet very professional, she is usually aware of the core specifics that have happened to our daughter that day e.g how she's settling into a new room/if there was something interesting that she was doing that day.

We have seen significant development in our daughter since she started attending nursery and the key workers always keep us updated on her progress to help make sure she is doing well and enjoying her time there.

We would highly recommend this nursery, I would say for us it's very important for a nursery to have specific activities for a child's all rounded growth but most of all the fantastic staffing team is what gives us that final tick in the box and gives me that comfort of having my daughter there.

My baby started just before he turned 1 year. It was really hard for him to settle, it took nearly one month of settling sessions. During that time everyone was supportive and kind and took the time and effort with him. He enjoyed thoroughly his time in the baby group, learned so much and became more independent. He is now at the toddler group and the staff made the transition seamless. He has been well looked after.

I found the nursery online and after viewing about 6 other nurseries, I felt very drawn to this one. I was about to put my only child in the care of someone else, so I was very particular about the littlest detail from hygiene and safety to staff attitudes. The nursery ticked every box and most of all, the manager made me feel very comfortable and assured and always has an open door for a chat. Every question and concern is answered and handled diligently. The staff members there are genuinely warm and caring towards the children, and know a lot of them by name, which I find very endearing. The environment is kept clean and there are a lot of fun activities to keep the children busy. Ultimately, my child is very happy here, loves to play with the other kids, has developed a keen interest in reading story books, comes home singing a new song every other week and added many new words to her vocabulary. Being at the nursery is one of the few times she is happy to wave me goodbye.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for 5 months now. She enjoys every day she attends, the care is excellent, the food is good, and her communication and development have come on leaps and bounds in this short time. The facilities are clean and the staff are friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery.

My son has been attending since August 2016, since he was around 13 months.
He loves nursery. As you would expect, it took a while to settle him in at the beginning, but the staff were supportive and helpful (to him and me and my partner).
It's clear the staff care about the kids, I can see that when I am in there, but also in the way my son talks about them. They have lots of arts projects, the toddler room always seems to have new art hanging up, which is lovely and seem to do lots of stories and songs too.
Nursery has really helped him to develop his speech and physical confidence. I think being around the other children has made a real difference.
The hours are also excellent. It is really helpful that they are open from 7.30 to 6.30. This, and the fact our son is so happy there means my husband and I can both do a full days work and know he is being well looked after.

We have been with this nursery for over two years.

The staff are great, it is easy to communicate with them, they always make an effort to explain how your child's day has been. I feel that my child is safe and well looked after.

The facilities and gardens are wonderful, the nursery has given my daughter a chance to flourish and be extremely happy with her environment and I would definitely recommend them.

My son started Hendon Pre-School & Day Nursery about 10 months ago. Since he started he has moved up three rooms. Each room has met his needs exceptionally. The transition has been smooth and the staff at each phase have been very warm and welcoming. He is a happy and smiley boy who is very excited to go to nursery every day and see his friends and teachers. The learning environment both indoors and outdoors is clean, bright and well resourced. He is learning through having fun and that, for me, is the most important thing. I am very grateful to everyone at Hendon Pre-School & Day Nursery for all their hard work in making the children feel happy and becoming independent.

My wife found this Nursery through a google search as we wanted our child to start at six months.
We first visited to take a look at the Nursery and loved it right from the beginning. The staff were all very friendly and most importantly the children were happy and well looked after. Also, security at the school was very good. I would not hesitate to recommend the nursery to all my friends with children.

My son has been attending the nursery for one and a half years. It is an excellent nursery and I would highly recommend it. The manager is personable, hard working, friendly and so caring. She takes time to get to know all the children and really creates a warm environment. Her deputies are also excellent and very friendly and professional.

My son has developed so well at the nursery and the key workers have all worked hard to keep me abreast of development points and progress. The nursery is inclusive and works hard to ensure kids learn about all cultures and festivals which I think is very important.

Overall, this nursery has all the benefits of a large nursery, fantastic garden where the kids spend a lot of time, but still manages to create a personal and nurturing environment for the children. It's been a perfect place to send our son and a big thank you to all the fantastic staff there for everything they do every day.

Even from the beginning we have been treated very friendly and we were introduced into the nursery by the nursery manager. She is very amiable, friendly and nice person. My daughter is attending this nursery from July 2013 and all this time she was feeling like home, her development was ascending and she has grown actually beside the staff from this nursery. All the staff are friendly, hard working, love their work! I definitely recommend this place!

This is a wonderful nursery. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and gentle and have really helped my vision impaired grandson settle in and look forward to going to nursery. They create a stimulating, learning environment and my grandson is coming along so well and learning new words every day. He loves the outdoor playground too and has a couple of special friends he talks about. The nursery have welcomed the local authority vision impaired specialist and have willingly taken on board all her suggestions to help my grandsons learning. He loves the meals too and often has seconds. It is a wonderful nursery and I would highly recommend it. My first grandchild went there too over 10 years ago and it's lovely seeing many of the same staff still there. Lots of singing too.
