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 4.647 for Asquith Edinburgh Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (141 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.647

  • 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 4.882 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Edinburgh Day Nursery is based on 12 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.882

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

Very pleased with nursery, the nursery staff are lovely and caring in the baby room and I feel very pleased that I can go to work without worrying about my daughter's safety and well-being. I know she's being given lots of love and attention. This is something I was very worried about prior to picking a nursey!

My son has been in the baby room and the nursery room and he really enjoys the nursery and I’m very happy with the standard of care. The staff are friendly and enthusiastic and have a great relationship with my son. The opening hours allow us more flexibility with drop of and collection around work. The premises are always spotless and my son is well fed.

I have been very happy with the standard of care my son has received since starting at Edinburgh day nursery.

He has settled in well and is excited to go come a Monday morning.

The staff are all very approachable and friendly and they make the effort to know my son's needs, likes and dislikes.

His language has come on great since starting nursery. He has learnt many new songs and the staff are always teaching him about a new topic.

The meals are all provided and are varied every day.

Overall I am very happy with the nursery.

All the staff have been extremely welcoming and helpful. They managed to accommodate an urgent start due to unforeseen circumstances which was very much appreciated and reduced my stress levels! My daughter loves her sessions, doesn’t want to leave and appears to have settled in well. In her short time at the nursery she has already learnt about lots of different topics and I am amazed with some of the things she has been discussing at home. Very happy that we chose this nursery.

Staff and Manager and Admin have made my child soo welcome. They have taken care with him and settling him into the nursery routine. I know he is happy and feels safe and content as he has started to eat and sleep at nursery as well as becoming excited when approaching in the mornings. All the nursery staff are a credit to the nursery

My son has left this nursery now but there is hardly a day passes by when he does not say he misses his nursery and loves his nursery. We came from India and I and my wife are both working. We were concerned how we would manage our jobs, but with your support, everything just went fine in last 8 months and now he has moved to the school. On his last day, we came home and he handed over an envelope, sealed it and put a star on it and wanted to give it to a member of staff. I am thankful to the staff. Thanks a lot.

My experience with Asquith Edinburgh has been very positive and I've been confident my son is at a high performing nursery with a very good reputation. Like any nursery, I'd imagine, it's at its best depending on the staff. So I was particularly happy with his 'nursery' room (age 2-3) as the staff there were so impressive I wrote to management when he moved up to say why I had appreciated them.

The children are well fed, there's a big garden to play in, they get use of the soft play. It gets good care inspectorate reports. It's pricey and I probably wouldn't be able to afford it if it wasn't for the 10% discount I get because of work.

Twin daughters, been at this nursery for 3 years from 18 months to school entry.
Nursery staff are wonderful and really care about each child as an individual.
Great range of activities - messy, active, educational loud, quiet, indoor and outside. Lots of fun.
New management team (August 2016 onwards) much nicer.
Great level of care to babies.
Highly recommended.

I am very happy with the care and dedication of the staff. Most recently, my son was shown great care and kindness by the baby room staff. My daughter skips into the nursery room in the mornings and doesn't look back.
The staff show a great interest in the children and are very professional with the parents.

Our oldest daughter has attended since she was 5 months old and our youngest for the last four months. We have been generally very happy with the care they have received, the staff are cheerful, professional, warm and caring. However, the prices are very high compared to other local nurseries and parts of the service such as the use of communication technology, is not comparable to that available elsewhere. There have also been issues with the staff turnover.
