  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 34 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Riverside Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 26 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 4.713 for Asquith Riverside Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (296 Excellents x 5) + (105 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 407 Ratings = 4.713

  • 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 Riverside Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 26 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 15.2 positive Reviews (76 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 26 Reviews ÷ 15.2 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.

My son has been coming since November 2017. Me and my son have been made to feel so welcome. My son has been settled so well by the staff and managers and they always go that extra mile for me and my son. They are very welcoming and supportive to both of us. I am very pleased with my son's progress since coming here.

My son always looks forward to coming to nursery which means I feel happy about leaving him.
The staff are extremely friendly and provide an informative and fun environment.
Overall, satisfied with the nursery, the only bad point is two increases in rates close together.

Wonderful staff, very thoughtful and considerate. We feel our daughter is in safe hands and she always has a smile when we pick her up and drop her off. So we could not ask any more from the nursery.

My son has always enjoyed attending Asquith Riverside Pre-School & Day Nursery and has received good care from all the staff. He comes home obviously having had a fun time during the day. The staff make lots of effort for special events and occasions including baking, card making and celebrations such as Chinese New Year, Burn's night etc. A great experience overall.

Riverside Nursery has been wonderful with our daughter. The unlimited settling in sessions allowed her to settle at her own pace and the staff were brilliant. They gave her space whilst she became familiar with her surroundings. She has gone from a shy and withdrawn little girl to a confident, outgoing character with lots of friends. Thank you, everyone, at Riverside, your communication regarding our daughter has been great. We always know how she's doing. Thanks again and we would highly recommend this nursery.

My daughter seems to really enjoy her days at nursery. The group is a good size and the staff seem genuinely engaged and interested in the well being of the children.
Activities are varied, food is nutritious and the nursery is in a great location for mine and my wife's work. My daughter always embraces the staff with open arms and cuddles which suggests that their pleasant nature is consistent throughout the day.

My two children have both been at this nursery from 11 months old and both loved it. My eldest is now at school and my youngest is in the pre-school room. The nursery workers are all fantastic and very involved with the children, never stood around just watching. My son feels happy and safe at Riverside, is taught good manners and good behaviour and has made lots of friends. Riverside has really good facilities, great food and great resources. I would recommend it to any parents.

My son has attended Riverside since he was just 1 (he is now nearly 4) and they have been supportive each step of the way.
The staff are always friendly and welcoming.
The premises are always clean and fresh.
Lovely atmosphere each day and know we will both be sad when he has to move on to big school.

Amazing bunch of ladies who put my son's needs first. Ensuring I know everything about my son's day and explaining how he is getting on in terms of progression. Couldn't recommend this nursery enough. Friendly team and an amazing atmosphere. Very happy to know that when my son is here, he is well and truly looked after, this made It easier when leaving him at 5 months.

Our son started at Riverside on his settling in sessions when he was just over 5 months old, starting full time at 7 months old. In the months since then, the staff have become an extended family to him and to us! The staff are wonderfully nurturing towards him and they work hard to help him to develop and he does so many activities that we just would not be able to do with him ourselves at home. He is well looked after and the facilities are excellent. Above all, it means so much that all of the staff genuinely care a lot about our son and enjoy seeing him achieve his milestones. As we can't spend every day with him ourselves there is simply no other place that I would rather he spends his days.

I have been more than satisfied with the professionalism and friendliness of all the team at Riverside Nursery in Derby. So much so, that we have been part of the Riverside family since 2012 - starting with my eldest daughter who was helped and nurtured from a baby to school age and now to my son who also benefits from attending here. To put it simply, I wouldn't trust my kids with anyone else.
