Asquith Harpenden Day Nursery is based in a beautiful listed building formally a police station which children enjoy discovering

The nursery has recently had a beautiful refit to create an inspiring space for children to investigate, discover and explore. The rooms are now colourful and airy with a wonderful fully-enclosed garden.

There are two wonderful baby rooms with a ratio of 2:1 to fully meet the needs of each child, a fun filled toddler room with access to various creative activities to develop and inspire the children and a nursery room with low-level access to toys encouraging independence.

The Pre-School room is abundant with the latest technology such as smart boards and interactive computers to help with learning and preparing the children for school.

The children also get the opportunity to participate in 'Tiny Mites' sessions every other Wednesday, joining in with songs, actions/dancing with puppets and props.

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Harpenden Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 10 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 4.726 for Asquith Harpenden Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (131 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 175 Ratings = 4.726

  • 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 4.877 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Harpenden Day Nursery is based on 10 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 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 11.4 Target = 0.877

  • 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 has been incredibly supportive. They helped identify that our son had a hearing problem which required medical treatment. They were supportive in plans to encourage speech and development of hearing after the operation. The care and attention they demonstrated is great and I'd recommend the nursery to others.

Keep up the good work.

Our child has learnt so much since being in the nursery, she always has new songs to sing and I'm really pleased how quickly she is learning her sounds. The staff are really caring with the children and are very good at telling us what they have been doing each day. I would thoroughly recommend the nursery.

My son has been at the nursery since he was 10 months old. The staff were brilliant at settling him in and they really took an interest in what he liked and enjoyed doing, even at such an early age. This has consistently been the case and I'm confident he's getting the best care while my husband and I work full time. The focus on development is excellent and my son is so happy here, he has formed strong bonds with all his key workers and his social skill are brilliant.

Excellent nursery with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. My son loves going to nursery, so much that he normally doesn't want to go home. Excellent facilities and definitely eats better than I do at work.

Our little boy is really happy and very settled at nursery. We are always comfortable dropping him off and it's clear he is happy to be there and he looks forward to seeing his key workers and friends. He has always eaten well and I have always been pleased with the different foods he eats there. He definitely gets good use of the garden and loves being outside. This is great because he is such an active boy and needs regular exercise! The staff are very approachable and the new management have fully made a difference- it all seems very settled. All in all I am extremely happy with Asquith!!
