Friends Forest Nursery - Ash is a Forest Nursery in Surrey that offers
children laughter and chatter but most of all a passion for learning about the world we live in.

Children from 3 months regularly enjoy the wonderful countryside around the setting. Children can be found in meadows and woods, away from classrooms, books, computers and traffic.

Children could be absorbed in a myriad of activities. Listening to stories, cooking, climbing a laurel tree, mud skiing on bottoms, swinging from ropes or whittling sticks. For them, it is just a typical morning at nursery.

It is a pleasure and privilege to be part of this outstanding nursery community. The children and staffs excel in so many areas, but it is their good humour, enthusiasm and curiosity which never fail to impress. In and out of the classroom we truly maximize each child’s individual potential.

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Friends Forest Nursery - Ash is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Friends Forest Nursery - Ash in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.792 for Friends Forest Nursery - Ash is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.792

  • 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 3.483 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Friends Forest Nursery - Ash is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.233

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

Reviewer Connection to Friends Forest Nursery - Ash

Friends Forest Nursery is a fantastic place! The children spend a lot of their time outside in the garden and forest. My eldest has come along so quickly there. Her speech and writing are well above her age. My youngest is just settling in so gets plenty of cuddles. The staff are always smiling and seem to love working there. I could not think of a better place to leave my children when I go to work, they absolutely love it there.

Friends Forest Nursery in Ash is an excellent nursery for children from a very young age right up to joining school. The staff are friendly and attentive. They care greatly about each individual child.
The environment is stimulating and varied, with a great range of learning opportunities both inside and outside. There is low reliance upon technology, which I favour, and lots of creative and educational activity. The children are encouraged to be good citizens and their language is quickly developed by constant feedback from the adults.
Children explore their local area most days, with older children walking a long way. My children know a great deal about the natural world, road safety and the weather. They are very fit and strong. The children are well fed and have plenty of fruit and vegetables. They understand health and hygiene. The smaller children get a good nap and the older ones have some quiet time during the day. Friends Forest Nursery is truly exceptional.
