Reviews

7.6 Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School has a Review Score of 7.6 (7.568)

The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.5 for Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School is calculated as follows: ( (30 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 3.068 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.068

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

We've been using Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School since 2012 starting with our older son who goes to school now. We are very happy with the staff, care and facilities. I felt my older son was well prepared for school. Staff is very friendly and helpful, great help with nappy/potty training, both boys bonded well with the carers. It should be noted Asquith have just moved to this location on 5/9/17 and shouldn't be confused with the nursery that was there before.

Staff are always changing. We have got a key person changing every two months!
Fees are high, but standards must be raised accordingly, do not feel that staff are engaged and interested with my child. Lack of teaching in the pre-school groups. No proper handover in the evenings when the majority of staff have gone.

Marketa Cardon, Bright Horizons Team at Asquith Kingston Day Nursery & Pre-School responded to this review on 15 Dec 2016:

Thank you for your feedback. I would encourage you to speak to the Nursery Manager and her team. It's important you feel that you can openly express your views, so any areas of concern are addressed and you’re totally happy with the high level of care we provide.

My child was welcomed on arrival and settled in nicely with reassurance from staff, there was a good atmosphere which you noticed immediately.
I would be more than happy for my child to attend here on a full-time basis without hesitation.

My two children have recently started at the nursery and I couldn't be happier with the nursery. Staff are professional and very loving towards the children. They have new management but the changes and ideas being implemented are all extremely parent and child friendly.
They just had their Ofsted inspection and I'm sure the outcome will be positive.
