Reviews

7 Ashleigh Nursery School has a Review Score of 7 (7.046)

The Review Score of 7 (maximum of 10) for Ashleigh Nursery School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashleigh Nursery School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.1 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.958 for Ashleigh Nursery School is calculated as follows: ( (138 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.958

  • 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 2.088 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashleigh Nursery School is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75 then divided by 2 = 1.875

    2. Target of 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.426 , then divided by 2 = 0.213

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

A fantastic caring child care setting, which has provided a great environment for both my children to learn and grow. My son is definitely "school-ready" thanks to Ashleigh. I would definitely recommend.

Ashleigh Nursery school is amazing! My daughter started quite late into the year and didn't know anyone there. All the staff made her feel welcome, special and went the extra mile to make her feel part of the team. I felt comfortable and confident that my daughter was being well looked after but also having fun. But the time it was time for my daughter to leave and go to school, she had made some lovely friendships and had grown massively in confidence!

My little boy attended Ashleigh from 4 months to 4 years old. The staff are very professional, yet caring and loving towards the children. You feel that your child is well cared for - good food and lots of activities. My little boy has now left for school but he misses his friends and staff at Ashleigh.

I have found Ashleigh to be warm, caring and professional nursery with exceptional staff. Over the past 5 years my two boys have spent 4 days a week at Ashleigh, and I would have no hesitation to recommend the nursery as such a lovely place for them to learn and play during their early years.

The staff have always been exceptionally caring and put the children first. They have also been exceptionally flexible to me as working mum which has allowed me to carry on with my career safe in the knowledge that my boys are safe and happy.

Many of the staff that looked after my eldest have also cared for my second little boy, always a good sign and so nice to build up a connection to the wonderful team who are Ashleigh.

We will miss them but are so grateful that they have set our boys off on the right path as they move on.

Ashleigh Nursery is a lovely nursery school. My daughter started there when she was just over 3 years old and, thank to all the caring teachers, she adapted very well and rapidly.
My son is 1.5 years old and joined Ashleigh when he was 6 months old. He also loves going to school every day.

My daughter has attended this nursery for over 2 years now. All the staff make an effort to make the child and parents feel welcome to the nursery. The use of there tapestry system is amazing, makes me feel more involved in my daughters progress at nursery. Receiving a daily sheet at the end of each session to know what has happened in the day is really helpful. It's amazing to know all of the people at the nursery have helped my daughter become who she is now.

My son has been at Ashleigh for 3 years & I honestly can say it's an amazing place.
The staff are wonderful & truly want your child to thrive and develop and they focus on doing what they can to help them achieve that.
The feedback to parents also is outstanding not only verbally and through daily sheets of what your child has done & eaten etc but by the interactive tapestry - you get to see pictures & write ups of what they've been doing in the day. We love adding our own things from home too.
The various rooms and outdoor areas are filled with exciting things to really encourage your little ones imagination.
My son has just started school and I had no worries at all about whether he's ready or not as everyone at Ashleigh have helped him become the confident, friendly, polite little boy he is and prepare him for his next big adventure.

This nursery is outstanding. All 3 of my children have attended over the past 9 years. The owners are really lovely people who genuinely care about the progress and well being of your child.
The staff are excellent - many are long serving (which I think is unusual in this industry) and all are pleasant, professional and well trained.
I have recommended this nursery to many work colleagues and wouldn't hesitate in recommending again.

Consistently good communication between the nursery staff and home, offered verbally, also via a daily sheet and best of all, the tapestry. Our granddaughter has really enjoyed the activities, which despite the length of time she has attended, do not seem to have been repeated. We loved the idea of celebrating Notting Hill Carnival at nursery, along with the new garden and play equipment, which the rainy weather still didn't spoil. The interaction via the tapestry, with staff commenting on comments and activities of what we have done at home is excellent. They have even followed up with questions for her at nursery to embed the learning at home.

Well done to all staff, we shall be sorry that she will be moving up to school soon, but feel sure that she has been well prepared, socially and emotionally for transition.

My daughter has been at Ashleigh since 18months old and is extremely happy there. When she started she was quiet, especially in large groups and with the help of the staff she is now very confident. The facility is superb especially the new inventors room and provides lots of activities for the children. Knowing your child is happy and settled at nursery makes all the difference to me as a parent. The online tapestry tool is excellent and the staff give regular feedback and share what the children have been doing. This is a brilliant way for me to know what activities my daughter has been doing and I can add comments from home too. I feel Ashleigh Nursery has fully prepared my daughter for school and I would not hesitate to recommend to any other parent.

My little boy attends 2 full days per week, he is currently in the Explorers room (babies). The staff are fabulous, with over 20 years combined service at the nursery I was extremely confident that he was in good hands. They are very attentive to all of his care needs and to mine as a parent also. As an early years teacher I am really impressed with the educational experiences he is exposed to, his electronic learning journal allows me access to his nursery day from my iphone and I can keep in regular touch with his key person about any new learning moments! We shared his first steps together and they supported him in gaining his confidence! Now there's no stopping him! The room is set out lovely with beautiful wooden furniture. It is clean and safe. They have a wonderful covered outdoor area which is a little decked area and then a grassed area with toys and equipment for physical development. There's also a sleep room and he loves falling asleep to the classical music we play at home!
I couldn't ask for any better and soon he's moving to the next room...I can't wait!
