  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 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 4.606 for Asquith Golders Green Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (141 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.606

  • 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 4.849 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Golders Green Day Nursery & Pre-School 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.849

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

Both our sons have attended Asquith and have always been extremely happy there. We really value all the care and attention the staff have given them and how well they have known both boys. The flexibility to book extra sessions and willingness to accommodate all sort of individual requests is hugely appreciated.

Very friendly environment and staff. They keep records of my child's every day routine, very keen to learn more about his likes and interests.

My son has attended Asquith for three years. He is happy there and the care is exemplary. He is excellently looked after and has formed good relationships with his carers and peers.
I have been strongly recommending Asquith to others since he started as I’m so confident of the care he receives. The ethos is child led which is very important to me and it is clear that my son is encouraged to develop his own personality and his carers know him as an individual exceedingly well. He has never been pushed to do things because he is a certain age but when he is showing signs that he is developmentally ready. I have been trained in the ‘circle of security ‘ parenting programme which promotes strong attachment via meeting individual needs and I see this style echoed at Asquith. There is excellent communication between home and nursery and also between staff members. Staff appear to get on well and be happy with their working environment and experience.

Asquith Golders Green Nursery for the last two years from June 2015 to February 2017, it's been an extension of family for my son. Staff are really close, caring, attentive and loving to children. I'm absolutely proud of all the work done during this time, in order to achieve all the maturity and development for a child of two to four years. Especially with their hard, patient, long, dedicated, professional and detailed work, done helping to overcome feeding difficulties to my little one. Equipment, resources, facilities and especially the way of teaching and implementing EYFS program, is really effective and you'll be able to see results on children learning and improving day to day very soon. The daily and personal contact with the staff gives you very detailed information about progress and how to help and assist as parents about education. Last but not less important, little ones feel really loved and enjoy their time at the nursery and parents, of course, feel even happier of seeing that!

This is a response to the Digital Marketing Manager's comment on my last review. That comment said: "we are pleased to let you know that Golders Green has been put on the priority list for a new outdoor space. The children should be exploring and learning in the garden by the end of Summer 2017."

It is now September and the work on the garden has not even started. Once again, the Golders Green location has fallen off the priority list, as has happened time and again over the last three years. I can only reiterate that the central management of Asquith / Bright Horizons is not committed to getting this work done.

The local staff at Golders Green are now in a very awkward position, having told both current and prospective parents that the new garden would be in place by now. I hope for both them and the children, that central management will now take this seriously.

So happy with how my baby was carefully and lovingly settled into the nursery. She loves going and it has made going back to work much more relaxed for me. The staff have been fantastic.

All three of my children have attended Asquith. Asquith Golders Green is an amazing nursery. The staff are fabulous. Always kind, caring and very knowledgeable. The activities they provided my kids were always exciting, fun and reflected the EYFS curriculum. The care they gave my kids was outstanding. I would fully recommend Asquith Golders Green.

*Excellent, Friendly
*My son enjoys it
*I am happy every time my son comes home from nursery I noticed he learns new things from the nursery. I remember when he was 23 months he recognised colours.
*When he asks for water he says please. I know he learned it from nursery.

Well done to all the staff for doing a great job.

Both my girls love the nursery. There is an unmistakable family feel within the nursery and stimulation which helped with not only the settling in process for my girls but also for them to continue to want to come to nursery and at times not even wanting to leave at the end of the day. In the morning when we are coming to the nursery, we only mention the names of key workers and staff members, and quickly my little one runs to the door or to her buggy and starts waving goodbye. I can't recommend the nursery more. Even after leaving the nursery/preschool for school, my older girl still often insists on visiting the nursery to see her former friends and her key workers.

The staff are really kind and they always try to take care of the children and communicate it to the parents. Definitely, you see that they love kids and their job. If there is any problem or issue they always contact the parents and ensure we get all the information.

Every single age level at Golders Green Nursery that our son has already been in (baby room and Nursery) has been outstanding. He was in the baby room until January 2016 - where he received the warmest caregiving and was constantly challenged by his key worker and by other caregivers in the room. Whenever we gave any developmental update or any concern we had, the team was always compliant and always worked with us towards advancing our little guy more. In Nursery room settling in sessions were extremely professional and done at our son's own pace in order to ensure that he is ready to join the older kids. Staff are always kind, welcoming and informative. The team also works to help the children with processes that happen at home and are very well synced with various aspects of the child's life.

Office staff are beyond great. Huge kudos to the team.

I am very pleased with the attention and understanding the staff have shown. This has helped my daughter to be more confident and feel respected. We hope this continues to further develop his learning capacity and prepare him for entering school in September.

My son had a fabulous time at Asquith, between May 2014 and Dec 2016, aged 11 months to 3 and a half. The care to development and learning is unrivalled. He is ahead of many classmates at his school nursery, proven to be because of his learning. He had a lovely time as well - The staff made it his 2nd home and I gave him all the care in the world, well above what is just absolutely necessary.
