9.8 Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.841)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 54 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 26 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 4.841 for Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (554 Excellents x 5) + (83 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 647 Ratings = 4.841

  • 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 Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 26 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 26 Reviews ÷ 14 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.

Words cannot describe how impressed I am with this nursery. My son has moved from a poor nursery, where his needs had been neglected, to this nursery where he has well and truly flourished and developed thanks to a wonderful team. My son always comes away happy and I cannot thank the staff from the admin team to his carers for providing him with such care and attention.

My son has had a wonderful experience at nursery. The settling in sessions have allowed him to adjust to the changes and as a family we have felt confident that he is safe, happy and well looked after.

Our son loves nursery and we feel well supported - we wouldn't change anything and are delighted with the decision we made.

We have recently had to change nurseries for our daughter after 2 years, following a house move. After a rocky start to childcare in a different setting, we came to Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery feeling nervous and anxious about our daughter settling into her new environment. It turned out to be the best thing we could have done. All the staff in the three rooms our daughter has moved through have been just fantastic - professional, caring and with an excellent mix of being fun whilst promoting learning. Our daughter has grown in confidence so much and made some lovely little friends. I would recommend Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery to anyone, especially those who may feel their child needs lots of love, care and attention from staff.

Thank you to all the staff at Port Solent Asquith for being so kind, attentive and loving towards my little boy. He only attended for a short period (I think 4 months?) but you made a big impact on him and he grew to really love the staff in his room. They made something which felt very hard (having to leave him) that little bit easier... quite plainly because he loved it and them.

They have absolutely helped add to his confidence and I am beyond thankful to them for making the process as wonderful as it could be. Not only did they care about my son, they also cared about me. I could phone up anytime to check he was ok and was met with wonderful kindness and compassion. A wonderful, wonderful team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My son is just about to leave the nursery as he is starting school. During his time here, he has thrived in all aspects of learning, communicating and socialising. The staff are an absolute credit to the nursery, they are friendly, caring approachable and have an excellent relationship with the children. A true testament to this is that my 3 children have all attended Asquith Nursery.

My daughter has been @ Asquith Port Solent since 8 months old and leaves this month ready to start school. We've been so happy with the nursery, the facilities are great and the staff amazing. I'll be sad not to come here anymore, it's been like having an extended family.

We moved to Asquith from another nursery when my child turned 3. I have been really pleased with the professional approach of the staff. My daughter has built up a really good relationship with the staff. The biggest positive is the learning structure and the activities they do every day eg, watching the chicks hatch.

All staff are very professional, friendly and approachable. Every member of staff knows our child's name and engages with her. They create a very colourful, stimulating environment and are never too busy to answer questions or discuss any concerns. Will be sad to see our daughter leave as she has thoroughly enjoyed her time here. We feel she's been given the best start she could've had to learning.

My two daughters have enjoyed their time at Port Solent Day Nursery. Between both children, we've been coming here for 7 years and the staff they have both had the pleasure of being with, have been amazing. Being at the nursery is like being at home with family. They have always been welcoming and understanding. I could not have picked a better nursery for my children to have come to and enjoy their first years. We will miss the staff that we have made special connections with. I always recommend Port Solent and I will carry on promoting such a fantastic nursery.

When my son first started in the nursery room, he was really shy and would hate it when I left in the mornings. The staff were brilliant with him and at reassuring me. Now it's hard to get him to leave. Lovely nursery, wonderful people.

Both of my sons have attended Asquith in Port Solent so I've been going there for 4 years. The staff there are excellent, very friendly and welcoming. The learning journals are brilliant and they learn something new every day as well as enjoying outdoor activities. The food is also amazing! I can't fault the service and the professionalism.

After almost 4 years of Port Solent Day Nursery, our eldest is more than ready for school. He's had a great experience and made lots of friends. Our youngest has grown up so much in the last year and is loving the free flow of the nursery room and to the garden. It has been a positive time for all of us and we will continue to recommend Port Solent Day Nursery to friends and family.

Like many parents, the idea of leaving my little girl somewhere all day was a daunting one. In the year I was off on Maternity Leave, I hardly left her side.
I really was quite worried about not being there for her if she needed me and, I was very anxious about finding the right nursery.

I didn't look at many nurseries but, I only needed to see Port Solent Day Nursery once. It really was head and shoulders above the rest. The environment felt safe and secure, the food was fantastic quality and the ladies were all so lovely! They really took the time to put me at ease. They looked after me as much as they looked after my little one. I had quite a few settling in sessions but, I never felt I was putting anyone out. They honestly could not have been more understanding.

Now my baby girl has been going for three full days a week, for a few weeks and...she loves it! She arrives happy and she leaves happy - what more could you want?

Our daughter has been attending the nursery since she was 3 months old. We are very comfortable and happy with the staff who look after her and we know that she is well cared for whilst we are at work. An example of how much the staff care for her is when she had a temperature and the nursery called me to ask if Calpol could be given, for which I was happy to give permission. In particular, I would like to say a big thank you to the team for looking after our daughter, she has come on leaps and bounds thanks to your dedication and making her so happy and making her enjoy the start of her childhood.

My son's progression has grown vastly and I love seeing him come home with something new he has learnt. He has been here since he was 9 months old and is now 2 years and can't imagine him going anywhere else. He has made lovely bonds with the staff and the children. The food is brilliant as is the caring nature of the cook, especially when my son has picky food preferences! Overall, Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery is a lovely place and the surrounding area is great when the children are able to go on walks!

The nursery and staff have been very helpful when settling my little girl. My little girl only does one day a week so she has found settling in a little hard, however, prior to starting, we had plenty of settling visits to help her get used to the environment. Now that she has started, although she cries at first, she then enjoys the rest of the day.

One thing that really stood out was the fact there are no restrictions on how many settling in sessions you can do and the staff place a high value on your child being comfortable and happy at the nursery before they start. Staff are keen to get to know your child's individual ways and use that to shape their interaction with them. The facilities are brilliant and the baby room has always been so calm when I have been there!

Very friendly staff and food facilities for my children to learn. I wish some of the meals looked a little bit more appetising! Very expensive fees which have gone up again in September 2016. Overall I have a very positive experience of this nursery. All the staff are fantastic and make the children and parents feel very welcome.

Amy Quayle, Onlne Marketing Manager at Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery responded to this review on 09 Sep 2016:

Asquith put a great deal of thought into the menu’s to ensure that our children have a varied and balanced diet. Our older children are encouraged to self-serve their own food onto their plates, and for the younger one's staff will chop, mash & blend the food as required to meet each child’s individual needs.
Our fees are reviewed annually, and parents are given sufficient notice in advance so that they can plan for these changes. As a “Triple Outstanding” nursery and pre-school which offers high-quality childcare and experiences for each child, we feel that our fees reflect this. We do offer the 10% sibling discount up until the older child leaves for school.

Everyone at the nursery has been brilliant. Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment and my daughter loves it. Nothing has ever been too much for the staff and nursery. We are very happy with the teaching she has received and her learning experience. Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery have warm and loving care, supportive and nurturing staff that make our children their number one priority. Thank you to all the staff. My child has had a fantastic time with you.

I have brought my children here twice a week for the last five years and am extremely happy with the level of care they have been given. From dealing with the challenges of various food intolerances with my first child to finding ways to engage my second child in writing when he would rather be playing. They have met our needs and exceeded our expectations. We will be sad to have to say goodbye.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The overall feel of the nursery is excellent. My children love coming here and always come away in high spirits. My children have come on so much in the last 12 months. They shown abilities to do things I have not shown them. Most importantly I know my children are safe and well cared for.

Both my children have been through all the age groups at Asquith Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery. We have always been very impressed with all the staff and the quality standards which are always excellent. Both the managers run a very tight operation which clearly keeps the standards high. Would highly recommend this nursery.

It is very difficult for working mums to leave their children to return to work (and it is no easier the second time round), but I drew a great deal of comfort from the fact that I was leaving my daughter in such a warm, happy and caring environment. I looked at a lot of nurseries, and I admit that I had high expectations in terms of what I was looking for, and Asquith has genuinely ticked all the boxes for me. The only slight limitation of the nursery is the fact that the outside space is rather limited. However, they have made the very best of what they have, and they have created a very stimulating garden area with some excellent play equipment. They also make sure that the children get lots of walks around Port Solent and they make great use of the facilities in David Lloyd so, for me, that has never been an issue.

My daughter was 10 months old when she started and it took several weeks before she settled. I shall never forget how much I appreciated all those settling in sessions which gave us both the time to get used to our new routine. They have paid dividends in the end because she loves coming to nursery and talks about her teachers and friends all the time when she is at home. There is a real emphasis on getting to know each child as an individual and a sense that the staff care about that child's individual needs and interests. My daughter has been fortunate to have the most most wonderful key workers in each of her rooms, and they have played a big part in building her confidence and her skills. Apart from the first class care, the stimulating activities, the fantastic home cooked meals, and the clear investment in good quality resources and toys, I have really appreciated the kindness and flexibility that the management team have shown when I have needed to book extra sessions for my daughter from time to time. In summary, I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery and I am so glad that I followed my instincts and chose Asquith.

My son attends the nursery for 2 and a half days a week. He has been going for 6 months now. He took a while to settle in (though no fault of the nursery - who offered additional settling in sessions) but he loves it now. His sharing and interaction skills have improved greatly since being at nursery. We get regular feedback of what he's been getting up to throughout the day, and I don't hesitate in asking questions, which are always answered in a prompt manner. There is so much for him to learn and discover which is great as he is on the go all the time. Very attentive and caring ladies. Always pick my son up and he has a beaming smile on his face.

Port Solent Pre-School & Day Nursery had made the return to work much easier then I thought it would be. The settling in sessions were extremely useful and really helped with her first full day. I was also very impressed with how the staff dealt with my daughter when she didn't like her high chair and did not want to eat the food. They tried lots of different ideas to make her more comfortable and she now happily sits at the table and eats her meals. I have been extremely impressed with the staff in general and they have made me feel much easier about leaving her while I return to work. This is an excellent nursery.

My son has recently graduated from Port Solent Day Nursery, and it's been a really enriching 3 years. We viewed many nurseries before Port Solent and none came close. The facilities are fantastic and the staff are brilliant. It's been a huge peace of mind when your at work, that your children are well looked after and happy. I have recommended this nursery to so many people, it's just fantastic.

My daughter have been coming to Asquith Port Solent since they were 10 months old and have not looked back! They attend once a week and run through the door to get in! The facilities and staff are first class with excellent attention to detail in the care of my children. Feedback upon collection of the girls is always in depth and useful.

I have sent both my boys to this setting. As an early years practitioner I looked at a lot of nurseries, Asquith Port Solent Day Nursery & Pre-School met my needs exactly and both my children are very happy there. Staff work hard to differentiate activities and communicate well with parents. I would recommend this nursery without hesitation.

My daughter started at 10 months old when I returned to work. As soon as we walked into the nursery we loved it and found it very welcoming. She has always been very happy there, and now she is leaving for school. We could not be happier with her development, progress and confidence. All staff are very friendly and approachable, concerns or queries are dealt with immediately. They have also always been very flexible, where availability was there, with changing hours or extra sessions and attendance patterns.

Fantastic staff, facilities, food and methods. I cannot find any fault with this nursery. Our son started when he was 11 months old and went through all departments. He has now left pre-school and is fully prepared for school. I can't thank the manager and her staff enough.

My daughter loves to go to the nursery. She has a great time. The personnel take care of her well. As a mum I don't have any stress letting her go to the nursery as I know she will be safe. I always get a report of her day, activity-food-nap-nappy.... So thank you everyone who takes care of her, well recommended.

We swapped from child minder to nursery and have been pleasantly surprised by the change. The nursery are well equipped and I've not heard a moan or negative thing from any of the staff. Drop-off and pick-up are fun times.
