  • 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 Windsor Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 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 4.755 for Asquith Windsor Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (158 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.755

  • 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 4.813 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Windsor Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on 13 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.813

  • 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 has just joined the toddler room from the baby room and before he moved up I felt quite anxious about the move and him being in a new room and having different staff looking after him. I needn’t have been anxious at all because I love the staff in the toddler room as much as I did in the baby room and they all do everything they can to make it a smooth transition.
He absolutely loves going to nursery and there’s so much to do in the toddler room. I can see him developing and learning week by week and that’s credit to the fantastic staff. Any concerns or questions I have about his development and wellbeing the staff are always supportive and informed and it’s so helpful to have them to talk to as they spend so much time with my son, they know him so well.
Asquith never fails to impress me and I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone considering putting their child into a nursery.

I enjoyed a lovely visit to my granddaughter's nursery on 'Grandparents Day'. The nursery was well presented - the staff were friendly, efficient and welcoming.
There was an excellent ratio of children to staff and the children in the toddler room were engaged and happy - it made me feel happy to know that my granddaughter is being cared for so well in such a lovely environment.
We also got to play outside in the safe - interesting garden.
A lovely time was had by all - well done to all the staff.

My son has attended Asquith Windsor 4 years, since 6 months old. I can't recommend this nursery and Pre-school enough. Staff stimulated, nurtured, loved, developed and disciplined my son and helped us bring him up. I feel they're part of our family; they listen and generate plans for every child and parental support has been outstanding. We've learnt from their lovely approaches to encourage great behaviour and a community spirit. From the food to preparing children for 'big school' it's a loving, caring, educational atmosphere. There's always time for a cuddle or a story or a chat. Paperwork is thorough - but almost not needed as every staff member knows each child. Fees aren't cheap - but 7am-7pm excellent service and peace of mind knowing your little one is happy is worth every penny. Don't have any doubts about leaving your child in the team's care! They are wonderful. It's with genuine, heartfelt sadness that we're moving on. Wish they had an infant and junior school attached!

We are very satisfied with Asquith, it is a lovely place and all the staff are very caring and professional. They do go that extra mile.
Our son has been here for a year and a half and he is very happy here. He's started when he was a baby and transitioned to toddler and nursery rooms without major issues, supported by the care staff.
He is a very balanced, contented, confident little boy, which is partly down to the love and support he is getting at the nursery.
We feel we can talk to the nursery whenever we need to seek for advice or feedback, all the staff are very responsive and open.
I would recommend this nursery to other parents.

Going back to work was made so much easier thanks to the kind and caring staff at Windsor Day Nursery.
My son absolutely loves going to nursery and gets excited when we approach the building.
I enjoy dropping him off every day and know that when I pick him up he will be smiling and happy after a great day.

On parents evening it was great to see my son's folder whilst I waiting to chat to his keyworker.
Also available was the 'Baby Room' activities book, with photos of what the babies do - they do so much fun stuff.
It was great to also have dedicated time to discuss my son's development.
Everyone at the nursery does a great job and we are very pleased to have our children attend the nursery.

My son has attended Asquith Windsor for nearly 3 years and it's now time for him to head to school. The staff have always been friendly, capable and very caring and I have always felt confident in leaving my son in their care. My son has forged lovely friendships and will miss his peers and the staff who have looked after him in that time. The handovers are generally very detailed and parents evenings are an excellent way to reflect. In all, a very positive experience and keep up the good work!

There is so much that goes on in your head when you are looking for a nursery for your child. Will it be safe? Will they look after my child properly? Will they encourage my child's development based on her needs and ability rather than learning at the same pace of everyone else? Etc etc.
Having gone through all of the above I put my daughter into Windsor Day Nursery at 14 months and have never looked back or questioned my decision. The staff are extremely helpful and really encourage my daughter's development. They have always shown an interest in her progression and have encouraged me to use the same techniques at home.
I highly recommend Windsor Day Nursery to everyone.

My daughter settled for 2months before her start date, due to this she has built brilliant relationships with the baby room team. I drop her off confident that she will have a great day, we have received lovely photos of her enjoying her day and honest feedback from staff. My daughter is thriving in the environment and is happy.

A great big thank you for helping my little girl feel settled at nursery. I know she is loved and cared for and this is the biggest reassurance I could have asked for. A lovely baby room with fab resources and a friendly team. I receive honest feedback about my little girl's day and photos to reassure me that she has had a lovely day, even if I have felt worried at drop off.

High-quality standard operating procedures like fever measurements and accident reporting. As well as personal care for the children by a dedicated caregiver. You can see this leads to a high level of comfort for our son (15 months). Lastly, we are very grateful for his hard hearing teacher, teaching our son (and us with instruction leaflets) sign language. What a great skill to gain so early in life!

Where did those 3 years go?
My girl loved every minute at Asquiths from Toddlers to Pre-School and her time there has meant a VERY smooth transition into school
Thanks so much for all the time (teacher time), love & laughs you all had together and the many memories she still talks about & cherishes. And to the Chef for the best cheesecake in town and the ability to have my stubborn one actually request broccoli and LOVE cauliflower cheese! An amazing feat!
And of course the list of babysitters I know have available to me...you know who you are girls!
A very caring and professional setting for any child, I'd highly recommend Windsor Day Nursery

I would like to thank all the staff at Asquith Windsor Day Nursery for all the love and care showered on my child during her time at the Toddlers Room. She has blossomed tremendously during her time here - perfecting walking down and up the stairs, seeking to interact with other kids, her eating habits and her increasing love for dancing and songs (she would sing and perform her dance moves whenever a song is being played)! She has definitely enjoyed daycare, there were times where she didn't want to leave! We are gutted that she has to leave due to relocation reasons but we believe she (including us) will miss everyone at Windsor Day Nursery.

I would like to express my total and utter gratitude towards Asquith Windsor Day Nursery. My daughter has attended Asquith Windsor Day Nursery since the age of 11 months and yesterday graduated as she is starting school in September. I have seen my daughter grow immensely day by day, they are brilliant in all aspects! The food, the learning by play method, the atmosphere, the activities they do day to day and the staff are just amazing! The patience, time and energy invested has shone through to her little personality. I would not hesitate to recommend this Nursery to anyone looking for daycare for their child as this is definitely the place to go. The parents are treated with great respect, I cannot fault them in the 4 years my daughter has attended. Not only has my daughter made friends of her own, I too feel that the Nursery Nurses are friends of mine too now. Thank you just isn't enough :)
