Asquith Bolton Day Nursery & Pre-School is a friendly and welcoming setting, rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in April 2013. The nursery garden has undergone a complete new refit in 2016.

The nursery has a fingerprint security entrance system so only those who are authorised can gain entry during opening hours of 7.30am and 6.00pm.

The stunning refit in the garden and inside the rooms has made the space bright and enables the children to explore and learn more.

Children also have access to a number of extra curricular activities including swimming, tennis and dance (three years plus), French, baby massage, baking and a monthly 'stay and play' session for parents.

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Bolton Pre-School & Day Nursery 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Bolton Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.772 for Asquith Bolton Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 180 Ratings = 4.772

  • 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 4.476 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Bolton Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 8 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.476

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

Moved from Scotland last year, a breath of fresh air to come here and meet management and staff.
Right from coming in there is a very warm feeling.
Reception staff and a previous manager were really friendly and approachable.
I felt staff really have given him love and attention.
He has come on leaps and bounds in the last few months.
He has developed in confidence, enjoys coming in.
I feel at ease that I can talk to staff including managers about any concerns.
The staff have been fabulous!
I wish this nursery propers more and continues to be a safe haven for all kids and parents!

I have been so impressed with Asquith Nursery since my son started in June 2017. From the moment you walk in, everyone says hello and is friendly and approachable. I can tell my son likes the fact that all members of staff know his name and are always smiling.

The team in his room have been amazing. They are all very personable, knowledgeable and put me at ease. They have made my son's nursery experience a good one, which was especially important to me with him soon becoming a big brother. Thank you!

As a parent, I can't praise this nursery enough. Its standards and care are both outstanding. Both my children have attended the nursery and their learning and development have been reached where they are exceeding their milestones in all areas.

The staff make you feel more than welcome and would go out of the way to make my child and my self to feel safe and happy. Both my girls have had good strong relationships with all staff. The management team do a fantastic job and are more than happy to help you in any way they can or answer any questions that I might have.

Over all the nursery is a fantastic setting and I would recommend to anyone looking for a nursery.

Lovely nursery, staff are amazing. My oldest child was here for 3 and a half years and he loved it. He learned so much and had loads of fun.
My 2-year-old loves coming to nursery, the staff were very supportive during the settling in period with both boys. The nursery is always clean and there are lots of fun activities.
The menu is excellent and has really helped my boys to enjoy a variety of food. The best thing about the nursery is staff. They are all wonderful and it's always been good to know my boys are in the best hands when I am not with them.

My child has been in 2 nurseries previously, and in comparison this nursery is amazing. The best decision I made was to move my child to this setting. He started in January with learning difficulties in speech and since has come along fantastically, I can only attribute his amazing development to the staff at the nursery. In the past 4 months, the development and change I have seen in my child has been a pleasure, he loves going to nursery. Everyone in the nursery is friendly, loving and caring. My child has a good relationship with all the nursery staff not just the staff in his room. The staff to child ratios are good, I know when I leave my child, he is not just taken care of but developed as well.
The nursery is clean, has fantastic resources and the children are well looked after. My child and I couldn't be happier.
I definitely Recommend if you are looking for a top standard nursery.

This is our second child who has come through the nursery. We attribute the excellent development of our first child to the input of the nursery. I could not speak more highly of all that the nursery provides and the way in which they provide it. The management of the nursery deserves special recognition.

Our child is nearly 12 months old and has been attending nursery for 5 months. The positive and engaging attitude of the staff has helped our child developed into a happy, content and loving child. We believe the facilities and environment provided at the nursery is nurturing and educational in equal measure. As parents, we look forward to collecting our child as we like to hear all the different things she has been learning. I have recommended the nursery to a number of people due to the fantastic experiences our child has here.

The staff always provide a very warm and friendly welcome upon arrival in the morning and through to evening collection of our little man. He has been going to nursery (room two) full time for four weeks and already we recognise his progress in personal development, balance/strength, motor skills and his attempt at speech is also growing with his continual new sounds. He has mixed very well with other children and is clearly enjoying his time at nursery. Whilst being back working I feel very confident in the staff and the facilities and daddy does too.

My son has had a positive experience at Asquith Nursery. He is finding the interaction with staff very pleasant and the toys and stimulatory sensory areas very educational, helping him develop his sensory skills. He finds the staff very friendly and comfortable to be around and feels at ease in his surroundings. One thing to note is the summary of his activities throughout the day seem repetitive and lack depth. There is no mention of what he doesn't like or found difficult throughout his day, thereby not knowing what areas he may need help with or further encouragement. Overall both the environment and staff are friendly, caring and look after him very well.

This is quite simple for me. When I go to pick my son up in the evening, he is reluctant to come, runs around, plays with the staff calling their names, and is always smiling.
That tells me everything I need to know about his wonderful nursery. The staff are wonderful. His key worker is amazing and my son is very fond of her. There is a human touch by the staff and if it is clear that they love their job. Most importantly, it's the leader who creates this atmosphere and so, thank you so much to the manager for everything.

The nursery is always busy, has a happy feeling. The children always look happy and well cared for. My daughter attends 2 days a week and really enjoys it. The staff have been great at identifying her strengths. They have encouraged her speech. She is very good with colours, shapes etc. The nursery have helped my Daughter to gain confidence. They are quick to help with any problems and recently I had some issues with sleep that the team in the nursery were able to help with.

From the start Asquith's were very welcoming. After my child moved he had an excellent key worker in his previous class, and now has an excellent supervisor and key worker. All 3 have been the kind of nursery teacher you would want for your child. Passionate, caring, innovative and most importantly an advocate for the children. They will correct anything that is not the best standard, which puts my mind at ease.
The staffs observations skills are excellent and help with settling and understanding the children quickly. We are currently working with management on ensuring parent's evening, all parties and events where children are participating are emphasised more than the emphasis on open days ?Reception staff leaving or change in management, as a parent would like to know about parents evening and key event which directly affect the child first.
