The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Gateshead is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Gateshead in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 7 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 4.893 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Gateshead is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.893

  • 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 4.318 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Gateshead is based on 7 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 22 positive Reviews (110 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 22 Target = 0.318

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

My little boy has been coming here for just over a month and I can already see that he has learned so much. The staff are lovely and the facilities are amazing. My little boy asks us to play Banana Moon and likes to be the teacher. He talks about nursery lots and he only attends one day each week. Would definitely recommend.

I highly recommend this nursery! Both of our kids have been attending the nursery for a few months now and are making a great progress. They get on well with friendly staff and make lots of friends. Nursery is really clean and kids spend a lot of time outside playing, discovering and learning. The nursery is also in a great location, right next to Saltwell Park providing lots of fresh air and squirrels to look at! Staff keeps parents well informed about child's progress and are willing to listen to any concerns a parent might have and take appropriate action.

Great nursery, staff are so loving and helpful. My son has been going here since 9 months old and I'm amazed by his progress and I believe it has a lot to do with the staff at Banana Moon Gateshead. Fantastic menu of home cooked meals and great toys and surroundings. He loves it and I love it.

The nursery has been recently renovated with all new toys and equipment providing a safe and clean learning environment. There is an array of activities on offer to enhance educational development. The outside space is a good size with a bug's hotel and play frame with slide and the staff are keen to get the children outside as much as possible. Meals supplied are readily eaten by my somewhat choosy child. The staff are committed to the care and development of the children and seem just as enthusiastic when our little one achieves something new as we are. Management have shown a keen interest to take on board the views of parents, keeping us up to date with newsletters. They have offered social events creating a community feel to the nursery.

I have used this nursery for the last 3 years, since my child turned one. He is just about to leave for school and I couldn't be happier knowing that he has developed so many essential skills, both academic and social to help him transition with ease. I can't thank the staff enough for making him the amazing boy he is now.

I knew nothing of the nursery as it was out of my residential area, closer to work, so really had to just go for it. I'm so glad I did.

Me, as well as my child, have made friends for life. We will never forget Banana Moon or the staff.

I have no desire for another child, one is enough, but if it ever did happen, I wouldn't think twice of which nursery to put them in.
