Does anyone use an Asquiths nursery? There is one in our area that we are considering but I haven't had any word of mouth recommendations yet. I know they might vary across the country but would love to hear any opinions. TIA

I viewed one last week & decided against it. The facilities were ok (although the outside space was all AstroTurf & right next to a busy road) but the staff, although friendly, just seemed to passively watch the children rather than actually interact with them. The baby room didn't have that warm loving feeling that I was hoping for. Although I realise that this was only one of their nurseries & others maybe amazing.

We have used the one in Haslemere for a few months now and our daughter loves it. The staff are really caring and take a genuine interest in her. The facilities are good and they are always varying the toys and experiences they provide. She only cries when we take her home! I imagine the staff and facilities could vary for each nursery. I think the benefit of the group is that all the many policies and procedures are worked out from Head Office leaving local carers a little freer to focus on the children. They have also been really flexible with us booking extra sessions when needed. Good luck with your search for the right nursery for you.

Good to know thank you. Yes they are looking to be very flexible with DHs shift unlike some others.
I'm sure they do vary but it's always nice to hear some stories.

The Borg would you mind sending me a PM so I know which one?

I have used one for nearly 10y with all my dc and have found it very good - caring staff, low turnover, happy kids.

The prices are extortionate though but that's another story!
