  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Southampton Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.82 for Asquith Southampton Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (313 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 372 Ratings = 4.82

  • 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 4.482 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Southampton Day Nursery is based on 8 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 16.6 positive Reviews (83 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 16.6 Target = 0.482

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

The nursery is absolutely amazing.
I felt reassured our son was in a good place and taken care of.
The team is wonderful, they know you and your child so well and give you lots of information and advice if you need it.
The nursery is very clean, there are plenty of toys and spaces to play.
The children are cheerful and happy to be in this nursery.
And don't forget the food made fresh every day in the kitchen, just around the corner of the baby room, so you can smell the food already while passing.
He loved his food here and learned to eat chunks, fish, meat and all kinds of vege.
Thanks, team.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough. My daughter began her settle sessions at 14 weeks and started three days per week when she was five months old. She is now two and a half years old and loves attending the nursery. She has transitioned through the baby room and is now part of the toddler room. I trust the staff implicitly and am delighted with how my daughter responds to them. They keep my husband and I regularly involved in her progress. We viewed a number of nurseries but this was bright, spacious, supportive and definitely the right decision.

I have been extremely happy with my son's progression and confidence at Southampton Day Nursery, I would like to commend the manager and the assistant manager for their professionalism, sensitivity and genuine care over the past few months. They have identified the individual needs/activities to enable a smooth settling in period for my son and more recently my daughter. The staff are very smiley and welcoming in nursery and baby room. The 3rd in charge has been very keen to ensure my daughter needs have been met to ensure her being happy and settling in. I would recommend Southampton Day Nursery.

Since our son started at 10 months, we have been really pleased with the staff and the facilities. The settle sessions were great to build relationships with the staff, so when our son started, we were happy to leave him and he really enjoys going. I would really recommend the nursery to others.

My son came to the nursery after having cleft palate surgery. The staff have been so helpful and accommodating to his needs. I have felt fully supported as a parent during his time here, and feel the staff are fully invested in his development. In particular, the seven-week settling in period was a godsend which other nurseries just didn't seem to offer. I'd highly recommend this nursery to others.

I am very happy with the service that the nursery are providing. My older son who is now 6 went here from 18 months until he started school and now my second son is here who has just turned 2 years old. The staff are friendly and experienced and I like that there is not a high staff turnover and lots of familiar faces. Both my boys have been very happy here.

We have been so pleasantly surprised to find my sons settling in sessions to be such a rewarding and enjoyable experience. To see him develop and enjoy himself, whilst we all build trusting relationships with his dedicated carers. There is always a friendly welcome and the attention to detail has been exceptional. I never expected the transition back to work would be a positive time, but it really has been and I'm very grateful to the team at Southampton Day Nursery. I'm certain this settling in experience is unique, the time and effort put into getting to know my son. Thank You.

My child started 4 weeks ago, we had lots of settling in sessions which helped lots. The staff are great and I feel my son is well looked after, safe and happy there. It is very expensive but clearly I want the best for my child. The nursery has been very welcoming. I am very happy with the whole experience so far.

I have been impressed from the start with this nursery. From the thorough settling in sessions to the detailed development plans that are created for my daughter, the professionalism displayed has been second to none. My daughter has special needs and the staff have received special medical training to help her with her care. I love the way that they talk to her and the hands on way that they work on her development. She loves going to nursery and has come on leaps and bounds since attending.

Our little girl started at Asquith Southampton in August 2014, and has been booked in since I was pregnant. She was unwell in her first year of life, and when due to start had a feeding tube in place. The nursery honoured their commitment to us in taking her with her tube, which involved being trained (a medical procedure which carries risk if done incorrectly) and doing this every day she was in nursery.
Thankfully, she is now doing really well now and eating normally. The staff have been amazing and supported us so well during this anxious period, and enabled me to return to work. They are incredibly caring, thorough and professional, and I cannot rate them highly enough.

This is our second experience with Southampton Day Nursery and the quality of care we've received has been excellent. Our baby is currently finishing his settles and gets very excited coming to nursery. We always get a full breakdown of his session and can tell he has received the highest quality of attention and care.

I cannot thank all the staff at Southampton Day Nursery enough. The care and attention my daughter receives is fantastic. She is always happy to come to nursery and is always happy and busy when I collect her. The baby room staff have gone to great efforts to follow her routine and build great bonds with her. I love seeing all her art work and pictures that the staff take on a daily basis, and I know a lot of time and effort goes into her planning. Thank you so much.
