8.1 Asquith Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.062)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 4.692 for Asquith Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (86 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.692

  • 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 3.37 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Trafalgar Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 16.6 positive Reviews (83 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 16.6 Target = 0.120

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

My child has joined reception year at his primary school. He is a well balanced, cheerful, friendly, polite and well behaved little boy. Asquith has cared full-time for him whilst his parents are in full-time employment since he was nine months old. We are convinced that the excellent care, guidance and stimulation provided in a safe and rewarding environment by an attentive and diligent team has played a great role in his early and successful development.

A lovely nursery with warm, caring, loving and bright staff. Both of my children have been through Trafalgar Day Nursery over the last 8 years and I know the place and the staff will form very special memories for them. It is a safe nursery with excellent outside space, which includes the nature garden. I have been sad to wave the staff goodbye now that my youngest heads to reception.

The nursery staff have been great and really helped mu son settle in over the past 5 months. They do a range of activities throughout the day, and often give me photo's of what my son has been up to. They've really helped him build confidence, especially since starting to walk. The staff have always been quick to tell me when my son hasn't been well and have really looked after him whilst I've travelled from work to pick him up. At the end of each day they give me a great run down of what my son has done and eaten during the day. I always feel well informed.

Having had our oldest at the nursery for over 4 years we are very happy that our youngest has just started in the baby room. The atmosphere at the nursery has always been welcoming with the staff being a credit to their profession.

This Nursery has been great for our little boy. He's been going since he was just over one and has been looked after so well by all of the staff. It has some great out door areas and facilities. But the most important thing is that all of the teachers know and look after all of the children so well that sometimes he doesn't want to come home. It's given him a great start to learning.

This nursery is excellent, standout reasons being the quality of staff and the outdoor space. My son attends full time and started in the baby room when he was 12 months old, then transitioned to the toddler room and now is in the nursery class. He has been very happy in each room and has adored his key workers and other staff members, and frequently mentions their names all weekend! We are very happy with his learning and development and feel he is getting a great preparation for school while still being in a caring environment.

I can honestly say I have never worried about him being in nursery, even when he was very little, which is invaluable when you are working full time. The 7.30-18.30 opening hours make drop off and pick up far more manageable.

There is a friendly and happy environment in the nursery. My daughter always comes home with various bits of glitter or otherwise, proving what a lovely day she has had. I feel very comfortable leaving her in the capable hands of the great team at Trafalgar and genuinely feel they care for her and enjoy looking after her, which is all any parent could ask.
There are great facilities and a fantastic outside area. They seem to make a point of playing outside every day.

A truly wonderful experience.
My son joined Trafalgar at 10 months (for settling sessions). He went full time at 1 year. After a number of transitions and tears to begin with, he now absolutely adores nursery. He eats and sleeps like an angel. The staff are just wonderful and his key-worker was the first name he said.
I can't speak highly enough of this nursery, how much my son loves it and therefore how much I love it!

I love this nursery and I love the staff even more. My daughter joined the baby room in Spring 2012 at just 3 or 4 months old and my son joined in October 2014 at a similar age. They are both full time and, as such, it is so important to me that they feel at home there. The nursery provides everything you could ask for and the staff have so much love for each individual child in their care that they've become our friends and are like honorary aunts to our children.

The facilities are brilliant - clean and bright with wonderful enclosed gardens and a field that are both safe and fun for the kids to play in away from public view. There is plenty of structured play and learning too. My four year old has been able to sing the alphabet for well over a year and can write and recognise an ever increasing list of words. She loves learning and the nursery finds inventive and fun ways to bring this into her day. My son, on the other hand, just likes to eat. The food is of an excellent standard and the menus are really varied giving my children a much broader exposure to different food types than they might get at home. My son's food allergies have been well catered for from the start.

Beyond the level of service itself and from a selfish adult point of view, two things really make this nursery stand out - particularly if you are a commuter.
1. the nursery opens at 7:30 -18:30. Most nurseries in the area are 8-18. The extra 30min on each side of the day means that I can still commute to town for work full time and not panic about being late.
2. the nursery runs the after school club for Trafalgar School and shares the building with the reception class. This makes the transition from nursery to school that much easier as the child can continue to be dropped off at the same time and place as they always have been. Also, if you still have a child at the nursery then you don't have to factor in two drop of points.

I can't thank the staff at this nursery enough for the start they've given to my children. I've no doubt they've made a huge contribution to making them the well balanced and confident little monkeys that they are. I recommend this nursery whole-heartedly.
