Asquith Woking Day Nursery & Pre-School

c/o David Lloyd Leisure, Westfield Avenue, Woking GU22 9PF

Asquith Woking Day Nursery & Pre-School was rated Outstanding by Ofsted following an inspection in November 2016. The nursery is a friendly, caring and stimulating purpose-built setting within the David Lloyd Leisure Club.

The nursery is extremely popular with a high demand for places. There are four age-appropriate rooms each with activities to inspire and engage children to learn and explore.

Toddlers enjoy weekly ‘sing and sign’ sessions where they learn simple sign language through music and song. In the toddler room children enjoy activities such as 'gloop', jelly, flour and pasta play. ICT is the major focus for learning as children learn through the interactive computer and smart board.

Numerous activities are incorporated in order to capture the imagination of children, encouraging personal interests and looking to prepare them for the challenges of full-time education.

Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Woking Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Woking 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 24 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 4.564 for Asquith Woking Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (190 Excellents x 5) + (109 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 312 Ratings = 4.564

  • 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 Woking Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on 24 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 15.8 positive Reviews (79 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 15.8 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.

In the run up to my daughter's first day at nursery the staff and managers were very supportive. They allowed us to have plenty of settling in and stay and play sessions. This really helped me swell as my daughter to get to know the staff, which I felt was important to me as a first time mum it can be an unsettling time. All the staff I've met have been very experienced and friendly. This makes me feel that my daughter will be well looked after and enjoy her time at nursery.

My child has been at nursery for 5 months now and looks forward to it each week, she seems happy, energised, motivated and we can see she is learning as well as developing social skills.

At the age of 3, it's not easy to assess how much she gains from the nursery but the fact she is always happy and excited to get to nursery tells me all I need to know!

Keep up the great work. Thanks from us all!

Both my son and daughter are at nursery. My son is in the early days of settling in and the staff have all been amazing, they are giving him plenty of love to give him the confidence to settle and they are providing regular updates about his progress. I asked my daughter to tell my son about the nursery and she didn't stop talking for ten minutes telling him everything she loved about it. This is a testament to what a lovely, caring and nurturing nursery we have with friendly, supportive staff who really do love the children. I have and would recommend them to other parents.

A very positive experience with both my children. Extremely friendly, happy and engaging staff. A great variety of activities. My daughter's confidence has really built up in her time here. It would be lovely if there were access to some more outside space, but they deal with access felt confident my children are in very safe, caring hands and that they have gained a lot in their development by being at Asquith.

Fantastic Christmas party. The time, patience and commitment of all the pre-school staff in preparing them for the nativity was truly commendable and the kids absolutely loved being in it.
Wonderful to have so much going on throughout the whole nursery involving all ages.

I have been a parent at Asquith for many years now and have always felt that the Manager and her staff are caring for my children as best as possible. There are some wonderful, caring, fun staff here whom I appreciate every single day. My daughter loves coming here every day, which definitely helps a full-time-working mums guilt to not be so bad. Thank you!

We would highly recommend Asquith Woking Day Nursery to any parent looking for high quality childcare. All three of our children have attended Asquiths and benefitted from the caring, nurturing environment which helped build their confidence, develop social skills and encourage them with reading, writing and numeracy. The staff genuinely care about the welfare of the children and I was always confident I was leaving my children in a happy, loving nursery setting.

Our girls have settled in really well following moving to the area. The staff have been absolutely amazing with welcoming our girls but have also been great at helping them to develop further.

Our girls look forward to their nursery days and always leave feeling energetic and happy.
Thank you so much for everyone's hard work and support of our children.

I am very happy with the team that is looking after my son. I am very happy with the toddler team and my son always goes into the room very happily.
I am also not worried about my son's transition into the nursery room as he has had many settling in sessions and I met his soon to be new key carer.

Asquith's Woking is an outstanding nursery (OFSTED think so too)! My son could not have had better care. Staff are friendly and very well trained.
The facilities are well deployed and resourced. Activities are varied and carefully tailored to the needs of the children and they feel happy and secure.
The food is excellent and there are clear and established routines.
Staff are always willing to talk to you about the day my son has experienced.
I could not have asked for more.

Our daughter really enjoys going to the nursery and is always happy when we drop her off in the morning. She loves the carers and the food and gets on well with all the toddlers in her group. She also really enjoys the group participation exercises, especially singing. She loves playing in the outdoor playground and using the slide.

Both of my children attend Asquith. The baby room is very calm with lots of activities to keep my one year old entertained. The nursery room is full of fun activities, my 3-year-old is enjoying all of the role play and excitedly tells us about her day. Both children are very content. The staff are amazing, always helpful and welcoming, contributing to confident and happy children. The adventure garden is lovely.

We have 2 children at Asquith, one in the baby room (he's 6months old) and one in preschool (he's 3.5years old)
Both children love school, the head teachers in both rooms are fantastic, they really get to know your child and focus on their individual needs.
Asquith have exceeded our expectations as a nursery and we are grateful for the dedication, love and support they offer.

I really like this nursery and especially the staff. We have been at this nursery quite a while now (9months) and our daughter was in 2 rooms (toddlers and nursery)
Every single member of the staff of the Asquith Woking branch are great and deserve recognition.
I would also recommend a visit to this nursery and the professional team.
The nursery manager is also a very nice person and she has full control on the nursery quality.
the only downside is the size of the garden but using Woking Park would be not a bad thing to do but there are associated risks.

Amy Quayle, Online Marketing Manager at Asquith Woking Day Nursery & Pre-School responded to this review on 19 Jun 2017:

Thank you for your lovely feedback. As you have mentioned we do have a small but well-loved outdoor space. We do try to access the local area for walks as much as possible. Comprehensive risk assessments are carried out prior to each outing to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children. If you would like any further information regarding this or would like to find out more about our physical activities, please do pop into the office the next time you are in nursery.

I am a retired primary school teacher and was quite worried about my grandson attending nursery at such an early age. However, this nursery has exceeded expectations and I know that he is loved and well cared for. The staff are always friendly and my grandson is making excellent progress. He attends daily and is now quite independent.

This is an excellent nursery with caring and passionate staff. Both my children have been at the nursery since 6 months old in the baby's room. One is now at school, the other is in preschool with Asquith. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery to any parent looking for a safe, clean, happy environment for their child to grow and develop.
