Reviews

9.5 Paper Moon Day Nursery has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.456)

The Review Score of 9.5 (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 4.9 out of 5 from 21 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 4.6 out of 5 from 12 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 4.9 for Paper Moon Day Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (224 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 249 Ratings = 4.9

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Paper Moon Day Nursery is based on 12 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 21.6 positive Reviews (108 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 21.6 Target = 0.556

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

If you have any concerns about leaving your child and if they are a little clingy then this is the place you need to take your child. My son and daughter are attending the holiday club for the first time and my son finds it hard with new things new people.
I took them both and the lady who was looking after them was amazing she really put me at ease with the way she was with them. He was upset as I was leaving him and she took my place and comforted him and he was fine I cried more than he did.
This may not sound anything amazing but when my son doesn't always stay with family members there is only one word I can use for this place and it's amazing, he couldn't wait to go the next day.
It took me 3 years at school for him to stop crying when I left him and it took them 10 minutes.
I cannot thank them enough I couldn't give them a 10/10 as this just wouldn't be enough and no words can really show my gratitude.

Our daughter joined Paper Moon in September 2016 at age 10 months, she has settled quickly and loves being there.
The staff are so welcoming and friendly and seem to really take the time to get to know each child individually. They all greet our daughter personally when they see her in the corridor - regardless of which room they are usually in.
Our daughter is encouraged to explore and play individually, as well as with others and in organised activities with the staff - her language has developed leaps and bounds in the last few months and we have the nursery to thank for this!
The food is varied and nutritional, and we get a detailed breakdown of what she has eaten throughout the day, and how much of each portion she has eaten at the end of the day. She has tried a number of new foods since joining Paper Moon.
Knowing she is so happy there has made the return to full-time work less painful, and I would happily recommend Paper Moon to friends and family.

I have 2 sons - aged 3 years and aged 9 months. They both attend Paper Moon Day Nursery. My 3-year-old has attended the nursery since he was 9 months old. His development at the nursery has been exceptional. He has always been happy to go to the nursery and has made a circle of friends that have progressed with him through the nursery rooms. My 9-month old started nursery 6 weeks ago. He settled immediately and has formed a close bond with his key person. He always greets nursery with a smile in a morning which made my transition back to work following maternity leave much easier.
I have been very happy with the nursery and all of the staff.

Everything about Paper Moon Nursery is lovely. The staff are wonderful and supportive of not only the children but the parents too. They hold the children's learning and safety paramount. They are a wonderful team at Paper Moon and my daughter thoroughly enjoys her time spent there. Every time we go in to pick her she's never waiting at the door for us but totally engrossed in an activity either independently or with a member of staff. Wonderful nursery.

Fantastic nursery, ever since my little boy started going to Paper Moon Forest Town since he was 6 months old (he is now 4), he has come on in leaps and bounds. He has learnt so much more than I could of ever have taught him, socially and educationally. He loves going to Nursery 3 days a week and his teachers are amazing and he loves each and every one of them. Every night he comes home and tells me all about his day and all the lovely healthy food and snacks that he has eaten. Ever since he was a toddler he has always been encouraged to try new foods and this has meant that he will now eat most fruit and Veg. I can't praise and thank this nursery and the amazing staff enough for everything that they have done for myself and my son.

Our son has been attending Paper Moon Forest Town for just under 2 years now and has come on loads since starting there. He loves the staff and they make him feel welcome and loved. He had his own key worker to help him along with his speech and he also has dietary issues and they are brilliant with that too.

Fantastic facility with thoughtful, engaged staff that clearly love what they're doing. My daughter gets so excited when she sees the nursery and barely looks back to say goodbye on drop off. Mummy sadness aside, I'm so glad she's in an environment where she is happy and thriving.

I would highly recommend Paper Moon Day Nursery. The staff are all extremely polite and helpful and are genuinely interested in your child and their development, in addition to any additional requirements they may have.
They work extremely hard to create a safe setting for all ages, with an abundance of activities, games, and toys available tailored to specific age groups which create a fun environment whereby children can both learn and play.
My son thoroughly enjoys nursery. He has formed strong bonds with his key workers and staff in his room. He has specific nutritional requirements surrounding allergies and the staff are working alongside me to create new idea's for him to explore so that he does not miss out on enjoying similar foods to the other children, whilst ensuring that is still achieving a healthy balanced diet.
I cannot thank the staff enough for how much they do for my son. They go over and above every day he is there making every day an experience to remember for him.

My little girl has been attending Paper Moon Day Nursery for a number of years and has grown into a confident child with the excellent support of the staff. We had no hesitation to put our little boy into the nursery once I went back to work. Staff are excellent and are so supportive.

As a family, we have had struggles and the nursery staff are compassionate and caring. My little girl and boy have fantastic bonds with the staff and are achieving their targets thanks to the staff.

We could not recommend Paper Moon enough.

Very welcoming with extremely friendly staff. They help settle both baby and parent into the nursery routine and provide detailed handover when collecting them in an evening. My little boy has settled in so well and the staff have been working so hard to help him achieve his milestones - crawling just one example. I could not be happier with this nursery.

I love Paper Moon and all the staff. My little one goes 1 day a week normally and is always greeted personally and at the end of the day, is so content. She often doesn't notice I am there to pick her up.
The children are always doing activities with new ones introduced regularly and the updates in her nursery diary let me see exactly what she has done and eaten that day. Fab nursery, would highly recommend to others.

Our daughter has only been attending Paper Moon for a few months but already we are extremely impressed with the care provided! The staff are very friendly and approachable and seem very organised with regards to activities, admin and security.
They are flexible with sessions so you don't have to worry if your child needs to attend different days each week, which is great. You are kept informed of key dates with a notice board in reception - they have lovely themed weeks and have themed events too. For example, they recently had a Halloween themed stay and play session in the baby room, and even if your child wasn't in that day you were still welcome to come along.
When I pick her up, I am informed about what she's eaten and how much, what she's been doing, how long she's slept and what nappies she's had - this is also recorded by staff in her own diary.
Most importantly, though, we know that she is safe and happy at Paper Moon and so would (and have) recommend this nursery to others!

Our daughter had to move to a new nursery after one we had chosen closed down suddenly. We looked at reviews of various nurseries around the district and found that Papermoon was our most favourable option. We were invited to a trial session and a look around the nursery. During her trial session our daughter had so much fun and played with nearly every toy there. That sealed the deal for us.
The staff are all welcoming and interact with every child. They not only offer entertainment, but the EYFS learning, this will instil a solid foundation for their progress into school. The site has ample outdoor activities spread over two play areas.
Neither my wife, nor I, can sing the praises of this particular Papermoon site enough. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for full or part-time childcare in the Mansfield, and surrounding, areas.
Our daughter has now moved onto full time school and will miss the staff and friends that she made.

This is my second child to attend, been using Paper Moon since it opened. Lots of the staff still the same for both children and feel like they have a real connection with them. All staff are lovely, friendly and approachable with any matter. Lots of variety in activities for my daughter to do and keep her busy. Great purpose built facilities that keep all children safe.

Our son has always enjoyed being at Papermoon and participating in the wonderful activities they have planned. He has made some great friendships with the children and some incredible relationships with the staff there. Especially Rosie! He has developed so well and we’ve been so pleased with how much effort has been put in by Roger and the others to help with his speech, which has really come along now!

More importantly we know that our son is safe and happy at Papermoon, which helps us to ease our mind about his care whilst we’re at work. We’ve always been contacted with any information to make sure our son’s well-being has been a priority and there is nothing more than that, that we could ask for!
They have been helpful with the flexibility they have shown us towards arranging his days with them, when he have had to make changes or been let down by others for his childcare last minute.

Many compliments to the staff and establishment on the wonderful events that they always have taking place, like the fundraising, fancy-dress and fayres. The effort taken to provide the children with new sensory experiences is evident. The displays are consistently refreshed, personal to the children and engaging. The building is always clean, tidy and smart and the meals look healthy and appetising! All of this hard work, further evidenced by their fantastic Ofsted grading!!

From one set of happy and grateful parents......Thank you!

Our twins joined Papermoon 2 months ago and, from day 1, have never wanted to leave. The staff are warm and accommodating and my children talk about them often outside of nursery. I can't stress enough how happy we are with the service we receive and the ever-apparent love shown to our little ones. We cannot praise the place enough.

My daughter has attended Paper Moon since June 2015 and she loves it. She often asks to go to nursery on the days she doesn't normally go.
She has made lots of friends with the children and the staff. She has learnt a lot and she is coming along all the time, and I believe nursery is partly responsible for this.
I would highly recommend Paper Moon Day Nursery to anyone who would ask!!
