Reviews

9.9 Asquith Wilmington Day Nursery & Pre-School has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.867)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Wilmington Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Wilmington Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 22 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 4.867 for Asquith Wilmington Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (260 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 300 Ratings = 4.867

  • 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 Wilmington Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on 22 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 22 Reviews ÷ 10.6 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.

Asquith Wilmington has been a great nursery for my daughter. The staff are great and so welcoming, professional.
I've felt at ease when going back to work leaving her here. The best nursery I have seen when viewing them all. My one year old will be starting in September.

The nursery is simply excellent. Both of my daughters attended over a period of six years and the care they have received has been exemplary. Both girls have come on so well in the care of the lovely staff at Wilmington.
As a parent, I couldn't have asked for better.
Thank you.

From the outset, the staff, environment, food, facilities and learning program have all been at a wonderful standard. My daughter enjoys her days here, has taken to the staff so much as to the other children and looks forward to her nursery days.
Her development moves on leaps and bounds whilst here, including language, play and eating.
I think she has a lifelong friend in the head chef! All in all, this is a wonderful nursery and a great place to prepare any child for school.

I could not more highly recommend them. Simply outstanding.
We will certainly miss everyone now it's time to attend school.

When my daughter joined the nursery, she was very shy and would not go to anyone. Since joining the nursery, she became confident and can engage with new people. The nursery and the staff are amazing and I would recommend it to my family and friends.

Asquith nursery has been excellent in every way. My son loves coming to nursery. He learns so much and does so many new things. I feel he has developed a huge amount and always comes home very happy after a day at nursery. I have found all members of staff very approachable and very caring towards my son and us as parents.
I can't say there is anything I would change.

Our second and youngest daughter now attends Asquith Wilmington following on from her older sister. Although it is only for one day a week- Friday. The enjoyment and confidence gained by our daughters from attending Asquith Wilmington is incredible. The teachers/key workers are and always have been, responsive, caring and focused on the care, play and development of our children.

My daughter who is now 2.5 years old, attended this nursery when she was 11 months old. She has been well looked after and loved. So needless to say when I had my second child, it was a no brainer that he would attend the same nursery.

My son started attending this nursery at 11 months old and he is now 14 months old. Unfortunately my son has got several multiple food allergies (wheat, egg, milk, peanuts, nuts, tomatoes, aubergine) and eczema. As you could imagine, cooking suitable food and providing a safe environment for him would be quite a challenge. The cook, Manager and all the staff has been wonderful, trying to source different ingredients for his meal, so he can have the same thing as everyone else. I am confident that I can speak to them at anytime to discuss suitable ingredients and menu or any problems with the staff. Nursery nurses in his room have been applying his eczema cream diligently so his eczema is under control. One can spend all the money on good equipment and resources for children but one cannot buy love. I am so grateful knowing that my children are in safe hand and being loved at the nursery. This makes my time apart from them at work much easier. I could not thank all the staff enough for their help and would highly recommend others to attend this nursery.

Our son has just left to go to 'big school' after attending the nursery since he was 10 months old! The love and care he has been shown is amazing! Knowing he is so well cared for whilst we work has made life so much easier!! He fondly talks about the staff, who know him so so well!! The education programme is fantastic too, learning through play, but recognising his full potential and enabling him to reach this.
A wonderful place for children to thrive!
