Reviews

9.1 Paper Moon Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.101)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Paper Moon Day Nursery is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 13 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 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.744 for Paper Moon Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.744

  • 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 4.357 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Paper Moon Day Nursery is based on 5 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 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.357

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

The overall atmosphere is very friendly and one of the most noticeable aspects when we first started was how welcoming, friendly and personable the staff were (and still are). Even staff who are not in my child's room seem to know his name and take the time to speak to him and say hello to us at drop-offs and pick-ups. (This is a big difference to other nurseries we have used in the past). The staff were also very good at settling him in during the first few weeks. An area for improvement could perhaps be the communication: we were not informed that our child's key worker had changed. Also, the nursery is clean but could perhaps do with a little refurbishment/re-decoration in places. But overall, we are very happy that our child is at Paper Moon Gamston.

My 3 kids have attended Paper Moon Day Nursery, 2 from the age of 6 months. I have found the staff very helpful and friendly and they look after the kids very well. Attending Paper Moon has been good for the kids as well. The staff help them develop their skills and social relations. The premises are clean and they get a balanced meal. I would highly recommend Paper Moon Day Nursery.

I have been familiar with Paper Moon Day Nursery for many years and knew I would always choose this caring nurturing environment for my little one.
My child was born 14 weeks prematurely and the support from the setting throughout maternity and my little boy starting at Paper Moon was immense. The nursery staff, along side the parents, organised the summer fete to support the neonatal charity specifically where my son was born. My son is now almost 2 years old and with the staff's influence, he's developing into a happy, cheeky little chappy who loves his time at nursery. The way that the staff ensure they nurture each child individually ensures that he is progressing well in every area of learning. His favourite activities at nursery are always the messier ones! which although leads to lots of washing!! I know he is having fun indoors and out! The management team work closely together and listen to parents and most importantly the children.

Fantastic nursery. Staff are all so lovely - lots have been there for 10 + years which is a good sign that everyone loves it there. Loving/caring environment. Lots of outdoor space, children are outside all the time. Plenty of food choice, diaries provided with summary of day which gives you an overview of what happens. Lisa (manager) and the deputy manager are both so nice and friendly - really approachable.

My daughter has been happy at this nursery for around 18 months. The staff go above and beyond to accommodate needs. Management in particular has been incredibly accomodating with regards to my ever changing requirements for nursery care. Couldn't be happier.

Papermoon nursery is a fantastic nursery that provides a personal, caring and safe environment for every child. The staff are all friendly, interact well with the children and clearly love what they do. All my children have attended this nursery and I would recommend it in a heart beat. I always feel that my child is completely in safe hands and enjoys attending the nursery. The food is varied and always eaten well, the activities are varied and the equipment is clean. The rooms are big, bright and the displays are amazing. It is lovely to see all the childrens' work and photos on the wall and they always have a theme.

My eldest attended Paper Moon in Gamston and he had such a fantastic experience and gained many essential skills and made many friends. The staff were always friendly and helpful and I never had one cause for complaint or worry in the years he went. When my youngest was born with a rare brain disorder I felt confident placing him in the nursery because I knew the staff there and I knew they would take very good care of him. They go above and beyond looking after him and work hard to aid his development and allow him to join him with all activities. He is very happy there and that's down to the amazing staff. I would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone looking to place their child.

All the staff at Paper Moon are lovely. They are all warm and welcoming. When my son first started, he didn't like it as it was unknown territory for him but after a few days the staff made him feel at home now he doesn't want to come home. They are always detailed on what he's eaten and done throughout the day. I can't thank them enough for all they have done for my son. Highly recommended!

I have had children attending Paper Moon for the last eight years. The youngest of my three children has just finished there to start school. We'd tried two other nurseries previously so can confidently recommend Paper Moon. Its biggest strengths include an impressive outdoor play space, indoor facilities all on ground floor level, a relatively stable staff team with a good mix of older and younger staff and its menus with homemade food prepared on the premises by a cook who takes real pride in providing nutritious and varied meals to the children. The manager is approachable and is a visible presence in the nursery. The staff demonstrate real warmth towards the children and the environment is very nurturing. All three of my children (two girls and a boy) have been very happy there.

I have loved everything about Paper Moon nursery they have welcomed my little boy in and made me feel happy and secure that he attends. He's come on leaps and bounds since coming here and all the staff have made me feel at ease when I was nervous about leaving him for the first time. My little boy had a dairy intolerance and the nursery were more than helpful with accommodating this : )

Paper Moon Day Nursery has offered outstanding care for my two daughters who were both reluctant at first about starting nursery. Before starting they were shy and reluctant to be left, but being at nursery really helped them to come out of their shells. The staff are always helpful and lovely. They were very understanding of both myself and my children and made the transition into nursery easy and pleasant.
