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 4.688 for Asquith Spring Lane Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (193 Excellents x 5) + (73 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 272 Ratings = 4.688

  • 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 4.699 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Spring Lane Day Nursery is based on 20 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 28.6 positive Reviews (143 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 28.6 Target = 0.699

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

Both my son and daughter have attended Spring Lane Nursery. The standard of care and activities are excellent. One of the most important things for me is the feeling that my children's emotional needs are tended too when I am not there and I feel that the staff at Spring Lane do that. Whenever they need a cuddle that's what they get. They have both enjoyed being at Spring Lane.

We are very happy with Spring Lane Day Nursery. Two of our children have been here since 1 years of age. We have seen both develop well and their progress has been mapped out by the nursery staff. A good opportunity to meet the staff and to discuss progress. Lovely place.

My girls have been at the nursery since they were 6 months old. Picking a nursery was tricky but after visiting, I was really assured that the staff would take great care of my girls. Now 3, the girls love the nursery and I know they are really well looked after. All the staff are brilliant and I would recommend the nursery to anyone looking.

Spring Lane has been brilliant, supporting my son as he was shy at first coming to pre-school.
He built such a strong bond with his key worker that he loves coming in now and sharing news with her. It's made him much more independent.

I have had a lovely experience at this nursery.
All the staff are caring and loving towards the children. As a first time mother, I felt happy and secure leaving my daughter at the nursery. My daughter's development just continues to grow the more time she is at nursery. Her confidence has grown so much. Thank you so much.

We find the nursery a fantastic environment for our child to grow up in and develop. The individual support she receives is good from all workers but in particular her key worker. She enjoys attending nursery and always comes home with a smile on her face. The food options are very good and she eats very well. We are kept well informed in newsletters and handovers with her progress and general activity. Overall, we are pleased with the care we receive.

This is a very good nursery and I am confident that my children are well cared for. The facilities are of a good standard and well maintained. Health, safety, and security are high priorities. The best thing about Asquith Spring Lane Day Nursery is the attitude of the staff. It's a tough job but it's clear that everyone cares about every single child and that do all they can to make the children feel happy and secure.

We are very happy with Spring Lane Nursery; our son has thrived here and I put that largely down to the nursery staff. They are welcoming and listen to your concerns or requests. They are supportive of how you feel as a parent as well.
I love how much space Spring Lane has; in all its rooms and also the gardens. The rooms are full of fantastic toy's/equipment and the activities they do are great.

First, it has plenty of space consisting of two classrooms with a garden of enough size. I would wish they facilitate more educational toys but I still like the way they arrange a variety of activities by themselves e.g cooking, baking, arts and crafts etc. Staff are very professional and kind to play with children so children follow them very well. Pre-school supervisor is especially excellent in leading staffs and children's overall atmosphere. My boys are very happy and made a lot of progress in a short time. I particularly appreciate my little one is receiving special care for this emotional difficulties.

I'm so so so happy with all the staff from my daughters nursery. Everything is different in a good way, my daughter is happy there and she made new friends. She learnt how to share the things (toys) with other kids, and me, her mum, I'm happy to see everything clean. Amazing and helpful staff, smiling all the time and so friendly, for us, my daughter and me, her mum, it's important to feel the place is a safe one. Everything- more than safety and security of course - its a happy place, and on this occasion I must thank you all for the good job they have done for my daughter.

My children have always enjoyed coming to the nursery. We are greeted warmly by carers and my children are looked after with kindness and care. They have developed strong bonds with various members of staff, particularly their key person.

There are always a wide range of activities for my children. They also love being outside in the gardens. The different rooms and gardens are well set up and give my children excellent opportunities to explore and develop and learn.
