  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.833 for Asquith Prestbury Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (272 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 324 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 Prestbury Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 16 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 13 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 children have both been cared for at Prestbury Pre-School & Day Nursery and I feel lucky that they made really good relationships with the staff and flourished developmentally.

Our son has been attending Prestbury Day Nursery since he was just under 9 months. He has had exceptional care from the staff in the baby room and this level of care has continued in the toddler room. We chose this nursery for the rural setting and also as we felt the staff were all mature and seemed to genuinely love being with the children. He adores his key worker and I can see how he has developed since attending. I know he will love the outdoor area this summer now he is old enough to run around and explore/get covered in mud. Management and team all very approachable and professional - 5*. It is not the cheapest nursery in the local area but we felt the smaller size of the nursery, consistency of staff and wonderful outdoor area etc was worth the small extra fee.

My child is always very happy to be dropped off at Nursery which makes me feel very confident in them. He regularly comes home with new words and pictures of activities so I know he’s having a good balance of being stimulated and having fun.

I could not recommend this nursery enough. As a working parent, my little girl has to go to nursery 5 days a week, and thus choosing the very best nursery was important to me. The staff are the foundations of this nursery providing a caring and stimulating environment which my little girl loves. It feels like a family: my little girl knows all of the staff; even staff which are not within her room as they make an effort to get to know all the children and this creates confidence within the children. The facilities are great and the children are encouraged to spend lots of time in the fresh air. The staff are always signing songs and reading to the children. There are always lots of different activities going on, to include weekly baking. I never thought that I would feel so at ease with my child being in a nursery however; this nursery has really captivated everything that is important to a child's development in a fun and friendly environment.

Since moving my daughter to this nursery from another, as we weren't happy, we love Prestbury Nursery.
The nursery and the staff are fab.

I would definitely recommend Prestbury Nursery. My son has attended since 7 months old and is now 2. The staff care so much about each child. They show love, professionalism and have fun on a daily basis. I’ve never once had that gut-wrenching feeling when I’ve left him. He has come on leaps and bounds and learns something new every day. He looks forward to Nursery and I have trouble getting him to leave at the end of his session. I really would be lost without the staff and their expertise guiding me through stages, always with a smile and reassurance. Thank you to you all.

In regard to the teaching of the children, the nursery is excellent for getting the children involved in many different activities. The nursery has very high standards with regards to discipline, and the children are well cared for.

My son started at Prestbury Day Nursery last year and having had no prior experience of a Nursery environment, I was admittedly apprehensive. The staff were so very caring and patient in their approach to myself and my son during his period of settling in. They provided a room I could sit in until I knew he had settled, and photos of his activities during the Nursery session so I could see he was engaging in activities. They consistently provide updates on progress, behaviour, activities, mealtimes etc so I know how my son is doing, plus they have liaised closely with me to ensure that between Nursery and home, my son has all the support he needs in his development. He has really bonded with the staff there and enjoys taking part in the wide range of activities on offer. I really feel the staff have taken the time to get to know him and his interests, which is lovely to see and is a great comfort to me. I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery.

I love how quaint and homely Prestbury Pre-School & Day Nursery is. It's not commercial which I really like and the staff are equally welcoming. The outside space really impressed me when we first went to look around the nursery. The fact that they teach certain languages from a certain age is also a big plus point for us.
The food choices for the children are always very impressive and I am in no doubt that my son is getting a healthy diet.
Great little nursery, my only negative is the price.

Choosing the nursery to send your child to is one of the most important decisions you make as a parent.

After visiting a few in the area, it was clear that Prestbury Day Nursery was in a class of its own.

The staff, premises, equipment and ambience of the nursery is outstanding. We know we're giving the best possible start to our daughters future by sending them there. Thank you.

We've used this nursery since early 2015 and have seen it go through some huge changes from a small independent nursery to Asquith and now to Bright Horizons.
I can't say it's always been smooth in the transition but the nursery now feels just like the nursery that we initially fell in love with; both of our children are at Prestbury Day Nursery.

The staff are second to none, I can't praise them enough, they are gentle and loving in their approach to children and they work hard with parents to settle children.
There is a new manager at Prestbury Day Nursery who has worked really hard to smooth over some of the wobbles of the recent changes and as a parent user of the nursery, I find her extremely helpful.
I love how the nursery feels under her management.

The nursery dropped from outstanding to good under Ofsted but I really don't think that's reflective of the standards there now.
The food is also great and my son excitedly gobbles down seconds from the fab on-site chef.
The staff keep the children at the centre of everything.

My son has been attending Asquiths Day Nursery since August 2015, he attends twice a week and he loves it there. All the staff members are fantastic, it's the first nursery that I have felt all the staff actually love their job and genuinely care for the children. My son has enjoyed every single day at nursery and always asks to go more often.

Prestbury Day Nursery has been amazing so far. My 18 month old son has been there a couple of months and has just ended his settling in period. In the beginning my son found it hard when I left him but the nursery teachers were amazing with him and reassured me he would soon settle and now he actually cheers when we pull up in the car park!

A massive thank you to all the staff at Asquith Prestbury. My child has come on leaps and bounds since attending the nursery. She is a completely different child, confident, happier and her development has been amazing! My daughter has only been going to the nursery for a short time but I am overwhelmed with the care and attention she has received from all the girls. Thank you again for everything you have done :)

My son has attended the nursery for over 2 years now and I have always been extremely impressed with the standard of care towards not only my child but all the children. The staff are always professional and friendly. My child has grown in confidence and learnt so much from attending. I feel happy and at ease to leave him in such outstanding care everyday. The nursery has recently been refurbished and has the most recent technology for the children to use. Meals and snacks are always healthy and varied for the children to enjoy a large variety of food.

My daughter is in the toddler room and has settled brilliantly with no problems. She loves her key person and other staff. She will shout their name in the mornings. The outside space in particular is fantastic, which they use all the time! The meals my daughter is given are lovely, we have sampled these at a recent open day and they are very tasty. I would highly recommend Prestbury Day Nursery.

All the staff at Prestbury Day Nursery have gone out of their way to support both myself and my daughter with what could have been a very stressful time; returning to work following maternity leave. The settling in sessions that the nursery offers have allowed us both to get to know the staff, routines and learning environments; building my daughters confidence gradually. Thanks to their reassuring approach I now feel ready for this new chapter, safe in the knowledge that my little girl is very happy, safe and extremely well cared for.

I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone seeking dedicated staff who clearly love what they do.

Our two children have attended Prestbury Day Nursery over the past 5 years and both of them have had a very happy experience. The nursery has a very homely feel, and both our children settled in very quickly and have thrived and developed well in this environment. The outdoor space is outstanding, including outdoor play equipment, field, woodland area and vegetable garden. This has now been complemented with a bright, airy and pleasant interior following the recent refurbishment. The wonderful staff are nurturing, professional, and friendly, and have always been extremely supportive in working with us. The children participate in many interesting and stimulating activities, which support learning and development. We feel our children have been prepared extremely well, emotionally, socially and academically for starting school. We would not hesitate to recommend Prestbury Day Nursery to any parents looking for a caring, stimulating nursery for their children.

I have almost 5 years experience with this nursery and I was so pleased with the quality and care, educational activities and the very welcoming "home" environment the nursery provided. The staff were great and took a great responsibility to look after the kids. The food was top quality and varied. I had three children, they all attended this nursery, my heart is aching that this is the last month for my son. I definitely recommend this nursery to all my friends and family.. I wish you the best of luck.
