The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Sidcup Pre-School & 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Sidcup 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 12 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 4.848 for Asquith Sidcup Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (176 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.848

  • 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 Sidcup Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 12 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 9.6 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.

My son couldn't have better care than he gets from the staff in the baby room. He has settled in so well and seems disappointed to be picked up at the end of the day!!
He gets to see his sister in preschool as well which just demonstration the thoughtfulness and care of staff.

Both of my children adore coming to nursery and race from the car park to the nursery door. My daughter has learnt all of her letters, days of the week and months of the year and regularly talks about the songs that she sings using the smartboard. My son has settled in well in the baby room, never cries when we leave him and runs straight over to his key worker. Brilliant nursery.

Very comforting to children, lots of cuddles if upset. They have circle time and read books. Always happy to discuss behaviour and any phases child is going through. Happy to carry on with rules and incentives established at home. Very helpful providing continuity with toilet training. Made suggestion of new numbers/counting programme on CBeebies and staff knew of it and happy to show the children. Staff very receptive to learning new ideas on how to invigorate a child's learning. Good at listening to concerns.

My son has been at Asquith Sidcup since January 2015 and he is so happy and has become a very confident little boy. He has recently moved up to pre-school where they have taught him to put on his own shoes and coat independently. He has good social skills and finds making new friends easy. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

We have had a wonderful experience since we came for an open day. We were so welcomed and made to feel at ease, we were taken through the process as we had a bad experience with another nursery, they made us feel relaxed and instantly knew we made the right choice in choosing Asquiths. Our little girl has changed from a shy little girl to a very confident little girl bearing in mind it's only been a few months. The staff are wonderful, very easy to talk to and very approachable.

I'm very pleased and happy with the standards of the nursery and the members of staff. My child has a great time and always talks about what he has done at nursery and about the other children within the room. The menu is great and has a good variety. There is a variety of resources and activities to do. My child loves sports tots on a Friday morning. Overall we are very satisfied with everything at the nursery.

Our daughter only attends one day a week but every week the staff are excellent at settling her and know how to calm her down. Every week when we pick her up she had learnt something new and explains her day when at home. The staff take time in the evening to tell me what she has done today, days or the week baby animals names etc. I was nervous at first leaving my daughter but now we are very happy and she loves it too no more tears.

I'm happy with the way my child has settled into the the pre-school room. The staff are always happy and greet you well at the beginning and end of the day. The staff are helpful and always willing to give advice when needed. They always provide a range of activities to encourage and meet each and every individual child's needs. The children have sports tots and swimming as an extra which is amazing. I'm really happy that the food is an 11-day menu so my child has lots of options. The care and love they have for the children is fantastic and overall I'm very pleased with everything at the nursery.

My daughter attended the Asquith Sidcup Pre-School & Day Nursery from 18 months old. We have always been very happy with the care she has received. The staff are brilliant, very caring and loving towards the children. My daughter has done very well and has recently learnt to write her name with the help of her key worker, she will be 4 next month! The manager is lovely and very professional, nothing is too much trouble. My youngest daughter will be starting in the baby room in September 2016.

My son has been at the nursery since December 2013. He has been very happy and settled here. As a working parent it was important for me to find good quality childcare and I have found this at Asquith Sidcup Pre-School & Day Nursery. My son will be leaving next month to start school and he will be very sad to leave. The staff are all excellent and my son has learned lots and is very ready for school.

The nursery provided care above and beyond my expectations. My son is always very well looked after. I am always fully informed of his or the nurseries actions.
I feel my sons learning has come on leaps and bounds, I feel his learning is a lot more advanced due to the nurseries input.
I am very thankful to the nursery and to my sons key worker for all their time, effort and patience they have with all the children. I am very sad as he is leaving to go to reception school. I wish we could stay at the nursery forever.

Such a lovely nursery with lovely, kind caring staff. The nursery has such a warm, friendly feel when you enter and everyone always has smiles on their faces. Leaving my daughter was hard for me in general due to a health condition, all staff always put me at ease and I knew that my daughter would receive the best care and I would be contacted if needed to.

While my daughter attended Asquith Sidcup they had a major revamp of the outdoor area which benefited my daughter as she is a very outdoorsy person and loves the garden and garden activities.
I always received a detailed, in person description of what my daughter had done and enjoyed during the day which I loved hearing about. We would also receive photographs every so often of activities that my daughter has participated in. While we Attended Asquith Sidcup my daughter built good relationships with all staff and would talk to family members about them very excitedly. We loved attending Asquith and my daughter misses it very much. A big thank you to all staff at Sidcup for your time, energy and efforts in the care and development that my girlie received!
