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 4.87 for Asquith Woodlands Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (167 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 Woodlands Day Nursery is based on 13 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 8 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.

Reviewer Connection to Asquith Woodlands Day Nursery

  • Mother of Child
    14
  • Father of Child

Leaving our child with anyone was always going to be difficult but the extended (free) settling in period was a good experience and when our child started ‘for real’ we were comfortable that she was going to be safe and happy.

Management staff are excellent - welcoming and competent. Any questions have been addressed professionally - issues we had with vouchers/tax-free childcare were resolved swiftly.

I can’t speak highly enough of the nursery staff. Their attitude inspires confidence - coming from a father who was bewildered by the whole experience. Always a friendly welcome at drop-off and any requests are carried out. Pick-ups are a similarly good experience, with staff keen to spend time talking through our child’s day, no matter how busy they are.

The general ‘feel’ is a happy one, which is a tribute to the staff who work there. To maintain such a pleasant atmosphere, considering how taxing a job this must be, is impressive. Well done.

A little bit of magic! Great nursery. The staff are warm, friendly and go above and beyond to help. Our daughter has been there since she was 9months old and is now coming up 2!
On top of the fantastic care, our daughter's development has been phenomenal! She knows her colours, alphabet, animals and her language skills are amazing - no problems communicating with exactly what she wants and doesn't want! The staff really try hard to give their best efforts and we are thoroughly delighted with our daughter's progress. Thank you Woodlands.

My husband and I are absolutely delighted with the care that our daughter gets at Woodlands Day Nursery. She is so happy to attend and is developing into a really sociable toddler which we are so proud of. All the staff are lovely and we have total trust that she is benefiting positively from her days at nursery. We would 100% recommend to anyone looking for daycare.

My 1-year-old started here in February and I really can’t praise the Nursery enough, it really is outstanding! During the initial settling we quickly established that my little girl was going to find settling tricky, so very quickly a bespoke settling approach was put into place, I can’t believe how well she has now settled! The plentiful amount of settling sessions personalised for each individual child is quite unique to Asquith Nurseries, most other nurseries would only offer 3 or 4. The staff and management are completely lovely and extremely knowledgeable. The learning environment is always beautifully set up with lots of lovely activities and areas for the babies to explore. I can ring up to see how she’s doing in the day and the staff are so accommodating. My little girl’s eating has really improved at home since starting nursery and she eats really well whilst there. The nursery has a real home from home feel and we feel very lucky that our little girl goes here.

Fabulous nursery my son has learnt so much here, he started settling in at five months old now seven months. He did not take milk from a bottle and was very fussy when it came to sleeping. The girls and his key workers have done an amazing job. I also call twice a day and they are so accommodating. I am extremely happy with them.

Woodlands day nursery is brilliant. Our older child was at Woodlands right through till school so it made sense for our younger daughter to go there. All the staff are so friendly and look after the children so well. Our child is loving the interaction with other children and having a mix of learning and fun. Great day nursery. Would always recommend this place to family and friends.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for 3 months now and really enjoys it. She gets very excited seeing the team and loves being greeted with breakfast.

On pick up she is always in great spirits and very worn out by all the activities she has been doing throughout the day. I feel happy that she gets to play and learn with children the same age in a safe environment.

Absolutely brilliant nursery, the staff are all fantastic and very helpful. They have helped my son settle well into nursery life with thorough handovers in the evening, photos and artwork from the fun he has had whilst at nursery.
It makes leaving him that little bit easier, knowing just how much he loves the nursery and the staff, well-done Woodlands.

My 21 month old looks forward to her time at Woodlands. Her face lights up when she sees her friends. It's a joy to watch her development at home too, knowing that the amazing staff have helped make my daughter grow into the fantastic little human she has become.

Woodlands Day Nursery is the perfect nursery for under 2s! All toys and activities to suit ages and all staff are extremely loving and kind! Perfect sized garden, all specific for younger children. My son thoroughly enjoys all the messy activities that are provided! Highly recommend! Eldest son absolutely loves pre-school! He enjoys telling me about all the things that they've learnt about that day! The staff are amazing and are always finding different ways to interest the children - especially the boys! They spend a lot of time in the garden which he finds fab as it also wears him out! Highly recommend.

The nursery is a safe supportive environment for my son. They have a wide range of activities every day that keep them engaged. I am really happy with my son's key worker and the chance to meet them on a Saturday to track progress.

My three year old son recently had his settling in sessions at Woodlands, as he is due to start there in the New Year.

Whilst we were there I was extremely impressed with, not only the professionalism of the staff but also their friendly and well-organised setting. They took the time to get to know my son whilst he was there and he thoroughly enjoyed exploring the room and playing with the vast amount of stimulating toys and books available.

He enjoyed the outside setting just as much and loved sitting down with the other children to eat his cooked lunch.

When it was time for us to leave, he begged me to stay! I am looking forward to his learning journey beginning with Woodlands and feel relaxed in the knowledge he will thrive and have all his needs catered for. Five stars to Woodlands and all the staff!
