Asquith Slough Day Nursery, Slough, Berkshire
Asquith Slough Day Nursery, Slough, Berkshire

Asquith Slough Day Nursery was rated by Ofsted 'Outstanding' following an inspection in October 2016. The nursery has undergone a refit to create an inspiring space for children to investigate, discover and explore. Digital photo monitors in each room allow parents to see photographs of what their children have been up to throughout the day.

The baby room provides an environment where babies are able to explore in a soft, cosy, homely space. From 'tummy time' on textured rugs with resources to excite and stimulate, to enjoying snuggles in the rocking chair with a key carer, this warm, inviting space is the perfect starting point for your child's learning journey.

The toddler area is separated from the baby area via a low-level partition, promoting a smooth transition between rooms as the children are already familiar with the environment and the carers therein. The bright, spacious room offers opportunities for physical challenges on the slide and 'toddle' boxes, to quiet contemplation in the reading tent.

The nursery room at Slough Day Nursery is a hive of activity and imagination, with lots of role play, building on the children’s knowledge of positive ideas around their communities and the wider world. Self registration and a golden rule board develop independence and concepts such as sharing, turn-taking and problem-solving.

A touch screen computer is loaded with interactive learning games giving a wealth of ICT experience ready for school.

Reviews

9.6 Asquith Slough Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.569)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Slough Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Slough 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 4.569 for Asquith Slough Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (143 Excellents x 5) + (90 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 239 Ratings = 4.569

  • 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 Slough 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 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 12.6 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 daughter loves nursery, and has done since she was 7 months old (she's 4 now!) My eldest was also there for over 4 years.

The staff are fun, enthusiastic, approachable and have my daughter's best interests at all times. They give great feedback and keep a journal that ensures my daughter is meeting all the EYFS requirements.

All rooms (baby and toddler room, nursery room and pre-school room) are always clean and full of light.

The manager keeps us up-to-date with monthly newsletters, and her door is always open! She is very approachable and the kids adore her as she takes time to interact with them.

My eldest is a well-mannered and inquisitive, child, with a confidence which is in part credit to this nursery. They helped mould her into the smart little girl she is today. She may have left 4 years ago, but when she comes to pick her little sister, I see what the nursery did for her, preparing her for school in more ways than imaginable.

Thank you Slough Day Nursery.

This nursery and the team are fantastic they helped my daughter settle in. They are caring, loving and attentive. They are even getting her to try new foods. At first, she cried so much when I used to drop her off but now she loves it and is always happy when I collect her.

My son and I have had an excellent experience while at the nursery, All members of staff especially in the baby group are very attentive and look after all the children like their own. When my son first started at the nursery, he would not let go of me but now grins while saying bye to mummy.
Cheeky as he maybe, all members of staff are very fond of him. My son is always well fed, learns new sounds, songs or finds new friends every day. A huge thank you to all staff, without you all we would not be complete.

The staff are all very friendly and hands on. I'm happy that my daughter was happy in the nursery. When it became time for her to leave, I was glad to see that she had also learnt a lot of early years learning before she set off for school.

My daughter has been at the nursery for two months now and absolutely loves it. She has always been a very confident child but being at nursery has given her even more confidence. All staff have been brilliant but special thanks to our key worker who my daughter bonded with straight away. I can go to work, confident that my daughter is happy and well looked after. Thank you, Asquith Slough.

The care my daughter has received has been outstanding. As a parent who found it difficult to hand over my baby to another person to care for, the staff were amazing in putting my mind at rest. I have both professionally and personally experienced childcare settings, none of which could compare to the care provided at Slough Day Nursery. The staff genuinely care for the children and want to do their best. The settling in progress was perfect, taking it slowly, according to individual needs.

Love the environment. The staff are always warm and welcoming. You always receive the reassurance you need as a parent when you leave your kid. I can call and check as and when I feel the need to and staff are always approachable. Overall, I am grateful for the care my son has received and the love and warmth from his carer and everyone here. Thank you.

My daughter has been at the nursery since she was 5 months old and she loves it! She starts smiling as soon as we arrive, is happy to go to any of the staff when she arrives. She enjoys herself and is completely settled, which is a huge testament to the team and their care. I had no concerns leaving her when I returned to work as she is in such safe hands. My daughter has developed a lot during her time at the nursery and I have found them to be very flexible and receptive to any thoughts or information I pass on.

Our experience of the nursery has been excellent. The nursery staff plays with our baby daughter all day, providing her with sensory stimulation and personal attention. They are also great in respecting the wishes of the parents in terms of routines and down to the little details. My daughter's primary carers deserve much credit and praise. My husband and I have good peace of mind when we leave her at the nursery every morning.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since November 2014. They have taken excellent care of her on a daily basis. She is always well fed and looked after, she has an excellent rapport with all the staff.
She is especially fond of her key worker, she is doing a fantastic job, always very happy and kind, she can't do enough to help us out. As a single father I can not thank her enough!!!
Feedback every day is great, my daughters key worker has helped my daughter in numerous ways from toilet training to nightmare control. She is a star! Keep it up!!

Really pleased with Slough Day Nursery.

My daughter absolutely loves it. She is always welcomed by staff and the other children from the moment I drop her in the morning, right up to picking her up at the end of the day, with a great big smile on her face.

The staff are excellent as is the nursery itself, with great outdoor/indoor play areas with lots of activities for the kids to develop themselves.

Any issues which arise are communicated with staff who listen, take on board and reassure for the best outcome.

Great nursery lead by exceptional management.
