Asquith Moortown Pre-School & Day Nursery

c/o David Lloyd Club, Tongue Lane, Moortown, Leeds LS6 4QW

Moortown children's day nursery, to the north of Leeds, is a friendly and exciting environment that children will enjoy. They are rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and provide quality childcare with a highly-qualified, caring team. The children learn and develop while enjoying the activities provided.

The low-level furniture allows the children unrestricted access to a wide range of resources and activities, and the playrooms are structured in such a way as to promote each child's independence, along with their decision-making and problem-solving skills.

Once a family registers, they work closely with them to structure their child's bespoke settling-in session. Each child is allotted a key person to ensure consistency throughout this process. Each child’s key person builds strong bonds with their key children, following their individual care routines and providing for their holistic needs.

This approach enables them to ensure every child's learning and development is focused on preparation for life beyond nursery. They follow the Early Years Foundation Stage programme so that all the activities provided meet children's developmental age and stage targets through activities geared to their interests.

There are nine primary schools, including faith schools, within a mile of the nursery.

The nursery also provides support to children with special needs and liaises with external agencies to ensure appropriate support is given.

They will be delighted to welcome you to Moortown pre-school & day nursery. Their friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you.

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 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 4.778 for Asquith Moortown Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (131 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 167 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 4.804 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Moortown Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 9 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 11.2 positive Reviews (56 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 11.2 Target = 0.804

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

This is a wonderful nursery. The staff are really caring and incredibly well organised. I feel very confident leaving my daughter here and she thoroughly enjoys her time here. My daughter has developed really close bonds with both the staff and the other children at the nursery.

Asquith Moortown Pre-School & Day Nursery is a well resourced, well managed, friendly nursery. My son has been at the nursery for 3 years now and I have just enrolled my second child. The staff go above and beyond on a regular basis to make sure children are happy and settled, they will do whatever it takes to make sure children feel safe and loved. The learning environment is amazing, especially in preschool. Imaginative, creative and enthusiastic staff engage children in all areas of learning through their play and follow the children's interests. They make the children feel valued and take time to get to know them properly. it is an expensive nursery but I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else.

I have been sending my son to Asquith Nursery for a year now and I am so pleased with my decision as it is one of the best things that could happen to my son. He loves the staff and enjoys his time and is also fussy to come back home sometimes. He is looked after very well and the feedback I get every day helps me understand what he has been up to, what he has eaten and his sleeping schedules. He has become such a strong, confident and clever boy thanks to you guys!

I cannot recommend Asquith Moortown highly enough. The management is excellent and they have a great team of staff who genuinely care about the well-being and development of the children. The settling in process is fantastic and the team are so supportive of parents as well as the children.
Everyone is friendly and welcoming. I would encourage anyone looking for a nursery in North Leeds to visit Asquith and see for themselves that it is by far the best nursery in the area.

I have been impressed with the management of the nursery and how well cared for my little boy is.
I like the breadth of activities he undertakes and am really impressed with how preschool is run.

Teachers are very friendly, polite, approachable. Professional staff, smiling at all times. My daughter looks forward to going to nursery and she has built a good relationship with one of her teachers. Teachers are pleasant and as a parent, I am happy as I receive feedback for my daughter's progress. The other thing that's outstanding, they also write care plans for prescribed creams or meds, very impressive. Teaching is brilliant.

Very good and caring staff, take great care of kids and my son feels like home here. He has learned a lot and we have seen him grow into a smart little boy in the past one and a half years he has been with the nursery.

My daughter started at the nursery 18 months ago. The settling in sessions made her feel secure and enabled her to feel more at ease. My daughter formed a good relationship with her key worker which in turn made her feel more confident with other staff and develop friendships with other younger children. Her language skills have improved which I believe is the work done at nursery.
Staff and managers are always welcoming and have an open door policy whatever time of the day. They are always willing to discuss my daughter's progress and share information as required. I would have no hesitation recommending Moortown nursery.

My daughter started nursery when she was seven and a half months. She took a while to settle but when she did she absolutely loved it. It's hard to keep her entertained at home now! She has learnt how to eat (herself), crawl and now is standing all because of the support she has received during her time here. It is a lovely nursery with trustworthy staff and she loves it!
