Asquith Tonbridge Day Nursery is situated on the West Kent College site and has been recently refurbished. The nursery is purpose-built on one level with large windows off a central corridor where parents can see their child at play. They have recently been rewarded 'Good' by Ofsted, Sept 17.

The nursery has a large garden with a separate baby area. Regular walks are also taken with the children to Tonbridge Park, Brindles Field and the library. There is a separate activity room with a soft play area for the more energetic toddlers and nursery children.

The rooms all have educational activities to stimulate and help build skills in numeracy and literacy, these activities are more common with the pre-schoolers as they prepare to move onto ‘big school’.

Once a week the children take part in Musical Bumps sessions in the toddler and nursery rooms, where the children are able to learn new songs and dances.

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Tonbridge 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Tonbridge Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.75 for Asquith Tonbridge Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 3.95 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Tonbridge Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 20 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.200

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

My son has been at the nursery almost year now. It didn't take him long to settle in because of the lovely staff who are so engaging and welcoming. He only goes twice a week but every day is packed with activities and a lot of fun, laughter and learning. Very professional and helpful staff but at the same time so much fun and always try to keep all the children happy and entertained. I would definitely recommend this nursery.

My daughter has attended Tonbridge Day Nursery for almost ten months and I can honestly say she has loved every second! Her learning has been nurtured and catered for step by step as she has developed. Staff have celebrated her meeting milestones and supported her in aiming for her next steps.
I cannot compliment the staff enough. From the moment you walk in the door, you feel welcomed and part of the nursery family. This, in particular, has made returning to work so much easier as I have felt they all care for my little girl as much as I do. I would 100% recommend this nursery to anyone without hesitation.

Our little boy has been at Tonbridge Day nursery for over two years now. We have seen him really thrive surrounded by a team who are truly invested in the care and development of the children.

The nursery itself is a lovely, bright and open space, with great facilities and a good garden.

We are very pleased with the nursery. All of the team make every effort to help the children to settle in and transition from room to room. There is plenty of activity during the day and staff are genuinely interested in making the day fun for children. The food is lovely too. Much more variety than I'd cook at home!

My oldest daughter attended this nursery when she was two years old who left in 2016 and my younger daughter attends this nursery. Every morning when we come the staff are so friendly and happy, they always make you feel welcome. Myself has had to make quite a few changes as to when the girls could attend and staff have always tried to fill my needs. As for my girls learning needs, I cannot find any faults, my oldest daughter who has just started big school has settled in well, she is reading books and doing spelling and as for my youngest, her understanding in tasks is so advanced.

The nursery is a perfect place for my little boy. He is really happy when I drop him off and has always had a lovely time. The care provided by all staff but in particular, his key worker, has been amazing. I always get a detailed description of everything that has occurred during the day.
