The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Basildon 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Basildon Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 15 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 4.618 for Asquith Basildon Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (138 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.618

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Basildon Day Nursery is based on 15 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.750

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

My little girl has been part of this nursery for 2 years and she has learnt quite a lot.
She has learnt the art of talking more, numbers, alphabet and singing nursery rhymes.

Asquith has no doubt, set a foundation for our little ones.

We would definitely keep in touch with the staff of Asquith and recommend them to other parents.

My rating for Asquith is 10/10.

Very friendly staff.

Our son has attended Asquith since he was 10 months old. He has just graduated and starts school in September.
We found Asquith staff to be very loving and caring towards our son.
Asquith is very professional but achieved a warm and caring environment and we felt that our son flourished here. We would highly recommend Asquith and our son's little brother will commence at Asquith in the near future.

My daughter has enjoyed her time at nursery.
She has learnt many new skills and become very confident. Her relationship with the teachers and one in particular, is fantastic. The staff have been amazing and very supportive of my daughter.

My daughter has been at the nursery for over 3 years. The care she receives is excellent. The staff care about the children and really take time to get to know them and settle them.

The outside space is excellent and my daughter has really come on since starting.

Any concerns I have are dealt with quickly and resolved to my satisfaction. Would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery.

My son came here from another nursery and it was the best decision I could have made.

Everyone was very welcoming and warm. My son felt "at home" and came out of his shell.

The people that work here clearly enjoy what they do and the children always come first and that is what helps them develop.

I have the highest praise for the staff and I cannot thank them enough for the care that they have shown and recognise his personality and individuality.

I highly recommend the Basildon Dat Nursery.

My daughter has attended the nursery from the age of one until now and is about to leave for school. She has always been happy here, there are excellent facilities, the staff have always been friendly and approachable.
My daughter has even progressed with her swimming when undertaking lessons whilst at nursery.
When I return to work, I will be sending her younger sibling to the nursery. I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to other friends/family.

As an outstanding Ofsted rated nursery, there was never a question about our son attending Asquith. Although the entrie pre-school has been absolutely outstanding in their development of my son, there are several staff members that need to be commended highly as these individuals have been great.

Those in the management team have proven to be epic.

Can't fault them. Top marks.

My daughter started this nursery at about 9 months old and has thoroughly enjoyed her time in each of the different rooms she has experienced.
The staff are all very friendly, caring and welcoming to both the parents and children. We are only leaving as we are moving house. We will miss all the staff and the friends my daughter has made. Thank you for everything.

Wonderful staff who treat my little boy as an individual and with dignity. My little boy attended another nursery previously and it is at Asquith Basildon Day Nursery that I find my son progressed, developed and learned. My son is always happy because of the staff who have a lovely and calm demeanour. I cannot recommend this lovely nursery enough. We are very happy!

The nursery provides an excellent settling in period tailored to each child. Child has a key worker and strong bonds are made between the key worker and the child. Parents evenings held for feedback and questions. Excellent garden facilities. Food is sometimes tailored to toddlers e.g curry, chilli con carne, and soup. Sometimes needs a good hoover, but that's children for you!
