The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Asquith Chingford Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Asquith Chingford Pre-School & Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.765 for Asquith Chingford Pre-School & Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (141 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.765

  • 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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Asquith Chingford Pre-School & Day Nursery is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250

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

Our son has been in the baby rooms for the last 5 months and has just moved into the toddler room.
We paid a visit to the nursery just after the new leadership team were in place, from first impressions, through settling in sessions to now, it has exceeded our expectations. All the staff are professional, enthusiastic, hardworking and genuinely lovely people, who are clearly led very well.
The development we have seen in our boy has been wonderful but most importantly we have no doubt he is very happy in his surroundings 3 days a week at nursery.
Finally, I have given a high rating for value for money, it's certainly expensive and other nurseries are cheaper but given how impressed we have been I think it deserves its rating.

We are so, so happy with this lovely nursery. This is the third nursery for our daughter (due to logistics/moving) but this has been the first where she hasn't screamed as I leave her in the morning! I feel as though her learning, development and social skills have increased so quickly. It is always so lovely to walk into the nursery where the staff and kids are always friendly and happy. Couldn't be happier.

Generally, I am very happy with Asquith Chingford Nursery. The staff are very welcoming towards myself and my son. I feel his language and social skills have greatly improved since he has started nursery and he is happy there. There were some issues when settling in regarding staff not following certain instructions and also at other times, I feel that not all staff were knowledgeable about medicines protocol but these have been resolved. The issues did not reoccur.

Amy Quayle, Marketing manager at Asquith Chingford Pre-School & Day Nursery responded to this review on 26 Nov 2015:

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.
As mentioned in your review, we have taken steps to ensure that each member of staff has recently completed refresher training regarding transitions of medicines. All staff are now confident in these matters moving forward.
If you would like to speak to us about any further aspects of your child’s care, we operate an open door policy for parents and will be glad to see you when you are next in the nursery.

I think that this is the best nursery I could wish for. It is well organised and incredibly professional. I love all the staff and think they are very loving, helpful and caring. I know all the mums feel that is is the best place.

This nursery is excellent, my child enjoys coming here. She looks forward to coming and seeing her friends and her key worker, who she loves playing with and enjoys helping her in the room. She is learning lots of new things all the time and we can see a big improvement since coming here.

A new branch of a big nursery chain, opened in February 2015. Before it's opening, we were using another local nursery, and we had reserved our kid to go to another local nursery this year. Then we found this new Asquith Chingford, it turns out to suit us the best, and my kid loves it too, so we decided to have our kid stay till the school age.

Situated right in the Chingford town centre, close to the train station, and opening long hours (from 7am to 7pm), this nursery if perfect for us busy working parent who need to commute to work every day. Had heard the horror story of another nursery where a kid escaped to outside, we looked at its safeguarding arrangement and feel very satisfied.

This nursery is based on a site of an old closed nursery, but had a good refurbishment carried out before it's opening. The living and education facility is quite up-to-date, and we especially like the roomy and well planned outdoor area, which my kid ha has a lot of fun.

The staff are friendly, playful and considerate. With plenty of activities, our kid feels happy to come to this nursery. There had been some staff and management changes during the past year, but with the benefit of being part of a big nursery chain, there are always plenty suitable experienced managers and staff can be drawn into this nursery, so the running seems smooth.

Overall, I feel this nursery is running at a very good standard, providing invaluable help to busy parents like us. Therefore I would recommend this nursery.

Very pleased with my son's progress at Chingford Nursery. The facilities are great and the staff are very friendly and caring. The food is also a big hit with a good range of dishes and lots of fresh fruit. My son seems to enjoy his time there which has made my return to work a lot easier.

We moved from Hove and a lovely nursery there and were worried that we were not going to find an as nice and good nursery/pre school again.
However, as soon as we walked in to view Asquith in Chingford we immediately loved it - the spaces as well as the fact that it is not too big and busy - just a nice and good nursery and pre school to play and also learn in! They have a lovely learning room which is great and the smart board in the pre school room is really good and the garden is fantastic!
Staff are all friendly and professional.
Also, I want to add their health and safety and medication policies and guidelines are very good - we experienced this in regards to our daughter's food allergy and the support, plans and assessments that they have in place.
The children have their own place mats too which is nice - with their photo, name and any allergies shown on them.

We, and our daughter, are very happy that we found this lovely, small and very good nursery!

My 3.5yo has attended two other nurseries and he has been happiest at this nursery. My son loves the staff and I appreciate the time they take on handover to fully communicate with me.
In the preschool class the kids get to spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoor area and get to enjoy a wide range of 'messy play'. My son loves the garden and all the equipment.
The range of food provided is also impressive.
Any queries I have raised with management have been answered promptly.
I'm very happy with this nursery.
