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 4.804 for Asquith Haslemere Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.804

  • 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 4.372 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Haslemere Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 7 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 18.8 positive Reviews (94 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 18.8 Target = 0.372

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

My daughter has been attending Haslemere Nursery since she was 5 months old, she is now 2.5! The Nursery has been amazing from the start! The settling in sessions offered were brilliant and the staff really got to know us as a family before she started which made me feel comfortable leaving her there. We have always been treated as an individual family and all communication is personal to us. The staff are friendly and always on hand for advice or support. My daughter's key person is amazing, she is excited to see her every day and knows her well. Handovers are detailed, I am told not only about how she has been but what she has learnt throughout her day. Managment are friendly, helpful and always available if I need them! The growing enhancements that were introduced when the Nursery was taken over by Bright Horizons are an excellent idea and I really think they will support my daughter over the next few years to get her ready for school. Overall an amazing Nursery.

Both my eldest children have attended the nursery. My eldest started in 2012 and my middle son in 2015. I have been thoroughly impressed with the quality of the staff, their dedication to the children and the warmth with which they provide their care. In particular, the enthusiasm of one particular member of staff in preschool/nursery has brought my very shy second son out of his shell. I also appreciate the effort they put into a variety of activities which has meant both children are well prepared for school - which was evidenced by my eldest adapting to Reception well in 2016.
The chef is also great and takes care to provide the children with a varied menu, including plenty of vegetables.
Since the refurbishment of the garden, the outdoor space is also great in all weather which is good given the extremes of temperature we have seen in recent years!
Finally, I should mention that the managers do a great job, and welcome you when you join.
Highly recommend!

My daughter has recently moved into the nursery room. The transition process was really helpful and I felt confident that my daughter was settled before her first real day. Drop off was stressless and her new key person was on hand to comfort her!
The nursery as a whole is welcoming and homely. I would highly recommend Asquith Haslemere to family and friends.

My two children thoroughly enjoyed their time at nursery so far. My eldest has now gone on to school and I feel she has had excellent preparation, enabling a smooth and relayed transition. My youngest still attends and is very happy. The nursery had a wonderful nurturing environment and staff are kind, caring and professional.

The settling in sessions were brilliant and my daughter settled into the baby room well. All the ladies in the baby and toddler room are fantastic and I always feel happy that she has such attentive carers. She has a great time at nursery and her development has been really good over the last year. I was very apprehensive about leaving her initially but seeing how wonderfully she is cared for and how much she enjoys her time at nursery is great. The staff make such an effort to let me know what my daughter has been doing and have built great relationships with her.

Our son started at Asquith aged one and during the five months that he's been going regularly he's developed and learned lots. The staff are friendly, approachable and helpful and our son is really enjoying his time at Asquith.

We have been really pleased with the support we have received in settling in our baby boy. We were anxious at the start but as soon as we saw how caring the staff are, this all went away. Our boy is having great days and achieving very good development milestones. It's also great to have parent evenings to come and discuss his progress in a bit more detail.

What I like best is the experience of the staff and the relatively low turnover, which means great continuity for my son.
The activities and themed weeks have been great and we like to continue this at home.
I like that the staff are always looking to try something new.
The garden is a huge plus - fantastic space, ride on's, slide, vegetable patch and climbing frames.

My daughter began settling in sessions in October 2016. We decided to send her to the Haslemere Pre-School & Day Nursery based on their fantastic facilities, garden space and the caring and professional staff we met. Their ethos mirrors our own when it comes to what we expect from those caring for and teaching our daughter. My daughter started in the nursery following settling in sessions and adjusted well. The staff in the nursery are amazing with her, she has grown so much socially in the time she has been with them. She is moving up to pre-school, already I can see that having a positive impact on her. We could not be happier with the standard of care and communication we receive from the nursery and believe we 100% made the right decision to send her there. The progress she has made from the shy girl she was is noticeable to all of our family and friends. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a safe, professional and caring environment for their child to thrive.

Our first few weeks at the nursery, from settling in sessions to beginning at the nursery have been well managed with staff that are all so friendly, in the baby and toddler room plus the management of the nursery. The staff are very caring and always willing to give cuddles to help settle mu daughter plus ask questions in order to get to know her needs better. As a first-time mum having to leave my 1-year old for the first time, the staff have made a difficult situation much more comforting and reassuring knowing they are so caring and competent.

Both my daughters attend Haslemere. My oldest has been attending since she was 9 months and is now in the pre-school. She has flourished becoming increasingly confident and interested in the world around her. They have weekly themes in the pre-school and my daughter comes home full of facts and ideas about these. There are lots of craft/art activities related to the themes. The key workers care about her and she is always excited to see them. The food is excellent and varied. I am so pleased we chose Haslemere as I love watching her excitement when she gets ready for and arrives at pre-school.
