The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Asquith West Lea Park Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith West Lea Park Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 9 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 4.724 for Asquith West Lea Park Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (168 Excellents x 5) + (57 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.724

  • 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 4.577 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith West Lea Park Day Nursery & Pre-School 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 15.6 positive Reviews (78 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 15.6 Target = 0.577

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

Excellent childcare whilst my son didn't settle too well it is nice to know he is well cared for when I leave him during the week. I also feel his key worker is very driven and detailed in her care plan for him.

We have been very happy with the care provided for our daughter and we would recommend this nursery to friends. Our daughter clearly has a good time and is happy, and she has definitely developed well while here. She thrives at nursery and has developed in both ability and confidence since being here and loves her time here. The nursery takes exceptional care of our daughter and we are grateful for all the opportunities that she is offered whilst in the care of Asquith nursery. The key worker system works well and in particular, the key worker is an excellent point of contact for our daughter and us as parents. The communication we receive is excellent and timely.

We love this nursery and all the staff. Since there has been a new manager, there has been even more to like. The staff are always very cheerful and welcoming yet professional. Even on those days our daughter is a little upset if she has had a bad night or maybe feeling under the weather, the girls notice straight away and do everything they can to settle her, extra cuddles, being silly, trying to make her laugh. They are very accommodating. Our daughter has progressed so much recently and is very happy at the nursery. We have no hesitation in recommending this nursery and the wonderful ladies who worked there - not forgetting the chef who creates the fabulous meals!!

Visited the nursery today for the Halloween party. Staff are friendly, approachable and highly interactive with both children and parents. The rooms are bright,
colourful and full of a range of different toys and equipment.

My son has attended since he was 8 months old and now approaching 3 years old. At each stage of baby, toddler, preschool I have been impressed with staff and the facilities within each room. Security is brilliant with passwords/photographs for people collecting and the buzzer on the door. Also there is a no mobile phones policy which I agree with. The staff are very efficient and always available to speak with you and have regular parents evenings. My son suffered a fit (at home) the staff were great at putting him on a care plan and contacting me if he is unsettled or unwell. I can't thank them enough for the care they have given.

The nursery has a good understanding of my little boy, he loves being outside, natures, animals and he has plenty of opportunity to have these experiences, for example his room has african snails and he is encouraged to care for them, feed them, clean and talk to the which he loves. I have seen my son blossom in confidence, language, social skills and communication. I have every confidence in West Lea Nursery.

My little boy loves coming to nursery. He can be a little unsettled in the mornings when I leave him, so it's very reassuring for me that he's built fantastic relationships with the staff in Nursery room & that he settles almost instantly each day.

The staff are so friendly & welcoming & my child has so much fun playing with them & joining in with the constant stream of activities happening throughout the day. He particularly loves to join in with the stories that one of the nursery room staff members tells/makes up. He talks fondly of his day, his friends & the staff on a daily basis.
I get a full report of how he's been throughout the day, if there are any concerns I should be aware of & how we can address these together. I can talk to the staff about any issues I may have, good or bad, for example; if my child is upset about something, or if he is particularly happy about something he has done at Nursery. I know the Nursery room staff will listen & support myself & my child.

The nursery is very professional, management and staff. The nursery itself is up to data and welcoming, my child settled in brilliant, and the staff in the toddler two were amazing with him. A positive bond is easy to see at pick up and drop off time. During pick up information that will be needed for during the night time and following week.

My daughter has attended the nursery since June 2012 when she was just 5 months old and is now in the pre-school room. She has enjoyed every minute of her time there and has some great relationships with the staff.
I have seen her grow and learn so much and the nursery has taught her the communication and social skills she needs to be prepared for her first year at 'big school' in September!

I can't thank the ladies at West Lea Park enough for all the time, care and love they have shown her over the years. Her memories will last forever!
