Reviews

9.2 Asquith Epsom Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.247)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Epsom Day Nursery 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Epsom Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 12 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 4.647 for Asquith Epsom Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (106 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.647

  • 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 4.6 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Epsom Day Nursery is based on 12 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 positive Reviews (100 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.600

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

Our daughter has attended Asquith Epsom Day Nursery since she was a year and a half and has thrived in all the rooms she has been in. Staff are caring, compassionate and extremely good at nurturing children and preparing them for each new stage in their development. Our daughter has made good friends and is learning all the time - we couldn't recommend Asquith Epsom Day Nursery highly enough and really appreciate everything the team does for the children, making them feel cared for and making learning fun.

My son loves going to nursery here, within 5 minutes of leaving he asks if tomorrow is a 'nursery day'! When we moved to Epsom I was worried he wouldn't settle well in a new nursery, but both management and staff have made a big effort to make sure he's happy, and that we as parents are kept up to date and informed of everything going on there. His keyworker and carers are really warm and caring and treat the children with respect and as capable human beings, which is really important to us. The facilities are good, but that's not the most important element to me, it's the level of care and attention. My only issue was that nappies and wipes weren't included in the fees, but that has changed since December and now they are included.

My daughter attended this nursery for 4 years (ever since she was 6-months-old). I found the service truly outstanding and personal. My daughter got very attached to her key workers and we were always kept informed of her progress and key development needs. Stage transitions are managed very well and we always felt confident she would be able to adapt to the new group quickly. Can't recommend Asquith Epsom Day Nursery strongly enough.

After more than 3 years at this nursery, my child is leaving to join big school. I couldn't wish for a better place and education for my child than Asquith Epsom Day Nursery. Excellent staff make sure my child was so excited to go to the nursery every day. Great activities for all ages, songs, dances and artwork prepared my child, excellent for their future education.

Our son has attended three nurseries in Surrey but Asquith Epsom was both his and our favourite. The stand out reason for recommending Asquith is the staff. Our son had two of the best carers we've come across. They and their colleagues ensured he had lots of fun, he learned so much through the games they played and he was safe and comfortable - exactly what parents need when leaving children in the care of others. They did a great job in helping us prepare him for school.

The building itself was well overdue a renovation but now looks superb, and the garden is the largest nursery garden we've seen. Although reduced during the refurbishment the garden should be brought up to a high standard too, one concern was that the children weren't out as often as we would have liked.

The food was good, our son ate well. The communication from management is clear and frequent.

Overall, Asquith Epsom employees are people you can entrust the care of your children to. They were great.

Our eldest son has been at the nursery since he turned one (over two years) and our youngest son has just started there (at aged one). We are happy with the care provided but the nursery and our son talks fondly about several members of staff. He has also made several good friends and the nursery are great at encouraging the children to develop friendships as well as more academic skills. We hope our younger son will be as happy there.

My son has loved his time at Asquith Epsom, having started there nearly two years ago.

The staff are fabulous and always take such an interest in the children, I could not be more pleased that I chose Asquith.

The staff at this nursery are a cut above other nurseries my children have attended. There is a real personal touch and both my children loved going there twice a week. The days are quite long at nursery and the fact that they were both happy to spend 10 hours there speaks for itself.

My child has been at the nursery since he was 11months old, he is now 3years.
He has been through all the rooms and the staff (both supply and permanent) have been nothing but lovely.
Always happy at handovers and always excited to see him.
All staff and management have been brilliant with dealing any concerns or queries and it has always had an open door policy.

My little girl really enjoys coming to Asquith, all the staff are extremely caring and go out of their way to ensure that my little girls care and learning experience is their top priority. I always leave her in the morning knowing that she will be very well cared for. Not only be her teacher but also the rest of the team individually the chef and kitchen staff. The only downside is the toilets and rooms are looking like they need repairing. However, a new extension/refurb is currently taking place.

A safe and happy Pre-School environment. Lots of activities and hands-on experience. Confidence is built and general awareness of life is instilled. Firm but kind discipline is imposed by dedicated staff. Every child is made to feel welcome. All are treated fairly and receive individual care and attention - part of a family. Although major improvements are underway this is not allowed to impinge on the routine of the day.
Overall, excellent pre-school staffed by caring teachers.

I have two children currently at this nursery and they both love it. The staff are excellent - they are knowledgeable, friendly and will always go the extra mile to ensure your children are cared for and developing well. One of my children is partially sighted and the Special Needs Coordinator at the nursery could not have done more for my child in the time that she has been there, in particular working with the local authorities to ensure everything is accessible for my child. The nursery are also great at including the parents - the communication is excellent and there are many open days, parent evenings and events so that you really feel that you are kept up to date with their development and also see for yourself what they get up to in the day! Overall we can't fault Epsom day nursery and I would definitely recommend them (in fact I frequently do!).
