Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Reigate Pre-School & 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 72 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Reigate Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 44 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.664 for Asquith Reigate Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (596 Excellents x 5) + (221 Goods x 4) + (32 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 849 Ratings = 4.664

  • 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 Reigate Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 44 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 20.2 positive Reviews (101 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 44 Reviews ÷ 20.2 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.

My youngest daughter has just finished 8 weeks of settling in sessions and starts nursery properly next week. I have been incredibly impressed with how fantastic the staff have been in helping my daughter settle in and feel comfortable and happy.
She was so used to being with me all the time that it took a little while for her to settle in and get used to being apart from me, so it was really great having the 8 weeks of settling in so she could ease in gradually and at her own pace.
The staff are very caring and cheerful and I feel very reassured that my daughter is in such good hands and being so well looked after.

Right from day one, the staff made us feel welcome as parents, and that made it so easy for us to get our daughter settled into her new nursery and routine. We know that there was a broad range of learning and physical activities made available to all of the children, which will undoability set our daughter up for a bright and promising future.

A massive thank you to everyone at Asquith for all of your dedication and hard-work. Keep it up!

My experience so far is only of the girls in the baby room. They are understanding, loving and patient with all of the babies in their care. As an Early Years Teacher, I found it very difficult to settle on a nursery, and as soon as I arrived here I knew this was the one for my son. It’s a daunting experience leaving a baby so little and they are supportive and understanding if you are ever anxious.

Yesterday, they threw a baby Christmas party, which was so sweet and all of the girls went above and beyond. At the end of the party, they gave me a personalised bag with all of my son's artwork, a card, a canvas with his little feet son and some other special things. They really do go above and beyond and I am happy every time I drop my son off knowing that he (not the easiest of babies) is with people that genuinely care about him and look after him. Something that not all other nurseries do.

My daughter has been in the pre-school room since turning 3 in September. We have been extremely happy and impressed with the care and activities in pre-school. She has really grown in confidence, happily goes in in the morning and enjoys chatting about her day. There is an excellent structure and routine to their day which the children seem to thrive in, while still varying the activities and monthly themes. Fantastic nursery and have already signed up baby #2!

My son attends the pre-school room and is our third child to have been to the nursery. He always has a great time - there are lots of varied activities catering to all of the children's different likes and the facilities are great.

The staff are all lovely and are good at settling the children into something they enjoy doing when they come in in the morning.

My 1 year old has just started at Asquith and so far I have been so impressed by the care and professionalism shown by every member of staff we have had contact with. We were advised to settle him in over a 2 month period, slowing increasing the time that he spent at the nursery and covering everything from sleep to meal times. This worked beautifully for us by giving both myself and my son plenty of time to familiarise ourselves with the staff, the nursery as a whole and also to get used to spending time apart.

The girls in the baby room are so welcoming to baby and parents alike and nothing is too much trouble. The care and cuddles that they give my little one and the fact that I know he is well looked after and happy when I am not there makes going back to work that little bit easier.

We are a Turkish family relocated to UK in January 2017 for work purposes and my 4 yr old daughter never learnt English before move. As parents, we were very concerned about her adaptation to the nursery at first but I would like to thank all the carers in her class that helped us a lot during difficult times. My daughter now can speak English fluently (amazing only in 6 months!) made good friends with her in class and every morning she has smiling and welcoming teachers taking care of her. It has been an amazing life experience for a 4-year-old girl and thanks to Asquith Reigate Pre-School class for their patience and continuous support and care for my daughter. We will never forget you :)

I really like this nursery, when I started looking for nurseries for my son, I did see a few before but Reigate Day Nursery was the only one I was certain about putting my son into. The management and staff were extremely friendly and approachable. I really liked the layout and each room fits well for the different age groups too. The nursery is very clean as well and I love the idea of no shoes in the baby room. My son is very happy and is learning/talking so much more, so I am very pleased.

Both our children (2 girls) have been at this nursery from the age of about 2 and a half years, up until the start of school. Both, in my opinion, have thrived and been very happy. the staff and the atmosphere you couldn't fault. Both my children have come home happy and more confident as a result of attending this particular nursery. I feel confident and happy we have given our girls the best possible start in school life.

My son is very happy at the nursery and enjoys all the daily activities and knows the routines well. He has a great bond with the carers in his nursery room who are fun, warm, caring and encourage good behaviour. He really enjoys the food prepared in the onsite kitchen and loves it when the chef does room visits. I like that the nursery room has several differently themed play areas as well as displays which show what the children have been up to.

Our experience has been excellent. All the staff are fantastic and have helped develop our daughter's skills. It has been great to see her grow and advance especially with respect to her confidence with others. Thank you.

Both my daughters have been extremely happy and well cared for at Reigate Asquith nursery. My eldest was well prepared for school when she left, and I can see how good the staff are at supporting my youngest daughter's development, currently as she prepares for school in September. We have experienced the staff in every room as caring. kind and supportive, whilst being professional. The management is excellent and we feel we couldn't have made a better choice od care for our daughter's early years care.

My boys love coming to 'school'. Everyone knows their name and says hello around the building. They come home full of tales of what they've done; they learn how to look after delicate animals like snails (how to be gentle!). They are stimulated and educated and get social interaction which is utterly invaluable.

This is an extremely nice place for my son. He loves coming to nursery and enjoys every bit of the place. The teachers are very supportive and loving and my son is very fond of them. They always have some event or activities going on that encourages kids participation and give them opportunity to socialise. In simple words, this is the best place for kids. And as a parent, it makes me stress-free and assured of my son's well-being.

We have found the nursery to be great for our daughter.
The staff are caring and attentive and she appears to have bonded well with them well.
My daughter seems to be participating in a wide range of activities which is good and her speech is coming on really well.
In more recent weeks, the baby room has seemed more "manic" since the rooms have merged and things a little more chaotic - Hopefully things will settle down.

Amy Quayle, Online Marketing Manager at Asquith Reigate Pre-School & Day Nursery responded to this review on 09 Jan 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery, we always appreciate parent feedback.

We are glad that overall your experience has been positive, however, we do take on board your comments. Our baby room can seem more chaotic than during December as we become very busy settling new starters for the New Year as well as all our Christmas activities taking place such as our Carol Concert. In addition, as mentioned we did also merge the rooms so children were busy getting to know their new friends. As the New year comes in, the room has settled down in to a calm routine and we hope that you can see this when visiting the nursery.

As always, if you wish to discuss this further or any other aspect of our nursery, please do pop into the office when next in nursery. Our door is always open

My daughter is a happy child and very confident and I can see she gets a lot from the nursery. She is clearly encouraged and liked by the staff who are always friendly, professional and fun. It's a great environment.

I cannot recommend this nursery more highly. The staff are incredibly passionate and professional about their jobs and it shows.
My daughter started here when she was 11 months old and was very shy and introverted when it came to new people and places.
Her carers have had a huge role and impact in developing her confidence. She loves her nursery days and can't get out of the pram fast enough.
Thank you all so much.

Very friendly, approachable staff. My daughter loves attending nursery.
Management are very accommodating in booking in extra sessions when requested.
My daughter has certain dietary requirements and management have been accommodating of these. A daily breakdown of her modified menu would be very useful for me.

Very happy with the nursery we have found. Our little girl had lots of attention to help settle her in and is now very comfortable being dropped off and picked up each day. Talking about her key workers at home has got to be a good thing.

As always, I am so delighted with the care and support provided by the nursery and staff. The variety of activities set by the team is great. From my child's reports, it is clear that education and development is also a key part of the nursery day. My child has learnt so much since starting at Reigate and continues to do so.
Would recommend the nursery 110%. Absolutely fantastic school.

We are very happy with our son's experience here. Firstly the staff in pre-school are excellent. Extremely caring and encouraging and really understand the children and their individual needs. The facilities are very good with plenty or room for different activities and learning experiences. Our son's very happy and has made a lot of very lovely friends. He will miss pre-school when he leaves next year.
