  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Paper Moon Day Nursery in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.764 for Paper Moon Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (214 Excellents x 5) + (57 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 275 Ratings = 4.764

  • 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 4.15 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Paper Moon Day Nursery is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.400

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

Excellent nursery and cannot praise enough. I feel totally secure and at ease that my 2 children receive the best care and attention on the day they attend. All the staff are friendly, approachable and professional, and the nursery appears to be managed extremely well with good communication. My children love going to nursery too and have built up good relationships with the staff.

My daughter only joined in January and she has loved every bit of it. She gets a little upset when we leave her but the staff make her feel welcome. It's helped me a lot with interacting with other children and it's helped her speech more.

An overall positive experience. The care they give my daughter is exceptional. Always polite and available to answer any questions I may have. Supportive of my daughter who has a disability. A brilliant nursery who make the effort to include all to participate in activities and games.
I would highly recommend this nursery to all.

My son started in January 2017 and since the day that he started you can see so many changes in him. He has learnt so many nursery songs and lots more words. He has also learnt to share and play with many children. He loves playing outside and they also have a variety of activities to do every day he goes. I also know that he has had a really good day of playing because he is always tired when he leaves the nursery. He really enjoys eating breakfast and lunch with his friends and has been learning independence as they teach him to serve his own breakfast himself which he loves and has started at home also. Whenever I arrive at nursery it is always very secure to get in and out and the rooms are always clean and sometimes tidy depending on what the children are playing with at the time. All of the staff are very friendly and polite and my son loves all of them and every day when he wakes up he wants to go to nursery so that must mean something.

I am really pleased that I picked Paper Moon Nursery for my son, he really enjoys it there and there are always a lot of different activities for him to do. The teachers are always so friendly and helpful and they have also taught my son a lot of new things (putting on his own coat, hat on etc).

I would highly recommend Paper Moon Day Nursery. My son is also now eating a wide range of food he would never eat at home due to the good variety of food.

I find the staff to be friendly and the nursery sufficient for my daughters needs until she starts school in September. The nursery is in a great location and the rooms are a good size considering the space they have. There's lots of activities and learning for the children to do as well as a spacious garden to play in.

Paper Moon Day Nursery is a very friendly, safe and welcoming environment. Staff recognise that the children have different needs and learning styles and encourage personal expression in a safe learning environment. Staff continuously ensuring that children reach learning and development targets and adapt their approach as required in recognition of children's different needs. The staff are an asset to the nursery.
The nursery has 3 separate rooms tailored to the needs of each age group. The nursery also has a great outdoor space to allow for the different learning settings. The outdoor space encourages learning with purposefully designed spaces.
Learning opportunities extend beyond the nursery walls. The children are often taken on walks to learn about nature, amongst other things all encouraging personal development.
Food is prepared daily on site using fresh products. The variety of food offered on a weekly basis is excellent.
I would not hesitate to recommend this nursery.

All the ladies are amazing. Both my sons have settled well. My eldest has been in since he was seven months old and has thrived and developed beyond his years in speech and physical ability. My youngest has just started full time and settled well and enjoys all the activities. As a full time working parents, this gives us great comfort to know that while we are away from our children they are being cared for, educated and nurtured.

Great nursery who have very friendly and caring staff. They do lots of activities with the children and always ensure there are plenty of dates in the diary for forthcoming events and try to involve parents where they can. Good communication with parents with happy children.

My daughter thoroughly enjoys nursery. She enjoys all the sensory activities they do and playing with the other children.
I love coming home and reading her book to see what she has been up to during the day.

The staff at Paper Moon are excellent. I know my child is going to be well looked after and the environment is very enriching to his development and education.
I am always informed about what he has been up to and I even got a Valentine's letter in the post from him which the nursery made.
The amount of effort that goes into everything, is first class.

All the staff here make my little boy feel welcome and they all do a great job in looking after the children. I love sending my son to Paper Moon and I think he enjoys going too. I love the fact that he comes home with a diary so that I can see how he's progressing and everything that he's done in the day, it's a great idea.

My son has settled so well into Paper Moon Nursery. He loves it there. The staff are fantastic with him, and with me, always keeping me up to date and reassuring me and my little boy.
It's great to know that he is being looked after and cared for so well.

What better review is there than my 2-year-old saying "yes" and reeling off the names of his favourite staff when I ask him every morning if he wants to go to nursery. Upon arrival, he runs to the door and heads straight to the breakfast table, excited for the day ahead. When I collect him at the end of the day, he wants to stay and help with the cleaning so I am in no doubt that he's happy, stimulated, well fed and well looked after at Paper Moon.

Absolutely love all the staff at the preschool. My son is so happy here, always coming home showing us things he's made or things he's learned. New songs, the colour of mars, even his left and right! That's only a few of the amazing things he's learned here. Staff encourage my child to be imaginative with his stories and dressing up. The connection he has with the staff is incredible. Dropping my son off is so easy to do because I know he's safe and very loved there.

My daughter has settled into this nursery very well with the help of the fantastic staff and management, she has very strong bonds with staff and the cleaner. Attending full-time, she is always doing stimulating and exciting activities and comes home very tired at the end of the day. The food she eats at nursery is very well nutritionally balanced and she eats lots! The range of activities she does is excellent, as a parent, I look forward to the stay and play sessions as they get very messy! My daughter can do 'please' and 'thank you' in sign language which she has learnt to do here. It's great!

After visiting the nursery a couple of times for organised events put together for the children, I saw that it was a well structured and organised place for my child to enjoy herself.
They do lots of singing and arts and crafts which is brilliant.
You can see how much the interaction between all the children benefits them and builds their confidence. The staff are not scared to let the children get dirty and have fun.
I feel completely safe leaving my child in their hands and I know she will have a great day and sleep well at the end of it.

The staff are very friendly in the nursery which provides me with comfort and take great care in looking after my child and making sure they are happy and content.
My child has come on lots since she has started nursery, learning different words and parts of songs which she loves to do at home too!
They have a good selection of meals for the children and are happy to cater to your child's needs if any.

I really feel my daughter has a home form home when she goes to nursery. She is a full timer little one so its a long day for her but she loves being there which makes it slightly easier for me when I need to go to work.I know she eats well, plays inside and out with lots of stimulation to help her learn and have fun, which as we know is really all we want our little ones to do. All the children play together at different points so they learn from each other but always supervised. Great staff who all bring their own experiences and knowledge to the nursery, lots of ages also which help too. I am really happy to say that this is a great nursery and recommend for any family for all ages. Not too big so it feels like home.

What a fantastic place. I only wish that I could stay and play too. Such friendly, caring staff. They are always accommodating if we need to find childcare for an extra day, or swap some days around (yes, we have been pests like that on more than one occasion!) Even the cleaning staff are wonderful and will often be playing with the children when we go to pick them up. Could not recommend them more.
