Reviews

10 New Moon Nursery Specialist Day Care has a Review Score of 10 (9.964)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for New Moon Nursery Specialist Day Care in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.964 for New Moon Nursery Specialist Day Care is calculated as follows: ( (185 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.964

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for New Moon Nursery Specialist Day Care is based on 14 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 6 Target Reached = 1

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

My Grandson started attending New Moon Nursery a month ago and he loves going. The management showed both his Mum and myself around, explaining what the children did in each area, activities the staff took part in with them, we were shown the kitchen and examples of what he would be given to eat and the outside space which has recently been upgraded. The staff at the nursery are excellent, they give you a full rundown of the day when you collect your child and are happy to address any concerns. The children are extremely well stimulated and looked after, and the homemade food is fantastic and nutritious, all in all, I can not fault the nursery, it’s standard of care and the staff who work there, my grandson loves going and always comes out with a smile on his face!

Thank you so much for your excellent review, Alyson. The practitioners will be over the moon to hear such positive comments.

New Moon Nursery are trustworthy and nurturing! My son had been with new moon 2 years from being a baby and I have never had any issues regarding his care. The things he has learnt are amazing and each of his key workers has been equally as caring and loving.

Thank you for your wonderful review Amelia. We are very grateful for your feedback.

I would highly recommend this establishment to all my family and friends. They have the most caring and friendly staff that are amazing with my daughter. Both my older sons have been to this nursery and I would not think of sending them anywhere else. This is worth the 20-minute drive to drop my daughter off. There are other, more local nurseries but I would not go anywhere else. They show a lot of commitment to their jobs and are more than happy to help and other advice if it is needed. This is the best nursery by far! Thank you all so much for the amazing job you do.

Thank you for your wonderful review Jade. It is so lovely to hear such positive comments about our nursery.

Our daughter was very hesitant when she joined New Moon but the staff are extremely friendly and couldn't do enough to help her settle. They have taught her many things in such a small amount of time and we couldn't ask for a better place for her to go. The facilities are first class too. Loads of areas of play and a wonderful outdoor play area too.

All three of my children have attended New Moon and have loved every minute. The care they receive is amazing and they have learnt so much from attending New Moon.

Many thanks for your fantastic review. We have loved caring for your 3 children! I will pass on your wonderful comments to our practitioners.

My little one has been attending New Moon for a month and she loves it, the staff are amazing especially their cook who has gone the extra mile to cater for my little one's allergies to make sure she has a well-balanced, safe meal.
The staff all go the extra mile to make the nursery feel like home from home, with all the personal touches and I know my little one is happy and engaged and well looked after. I would recommend New Moon to anyone.

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We really appreciate such positive feedback.

My son currently attends New Moon and has so much fun there. He settled really well because all the staff are so caring and welcoming. He is beginning to make lovely friendships and the new ParentZone app is fantastic as you can see the staff and children in action through pictures and videos. The interaction between children and adults is super!
My daughter also went to New Moon and this was an excellent start to her early learning journey! She enjoyed every minute of her time there and still talks about it now! If you are looking for an excellent nursery look no further! This nursery provides excellent activities indoors and outdoors and excellent care for children. I thank New Moon for providing outstanding care for both my children.

Thank you so much for your review Alison. We really appreciate the time you have taken to do this.

I can't thank the ladies enough at New Moon Nursery! My son has been going to nursery here since easter 2016. We decided to send him to a private nursery as he has communication problems and the staff to child ratio is smaller than a school nursery. They have helped him develop so much and have been very supportive in helping him progress. This time last year, he wouldn't communicate at all and was very shy and withdrawn. Now he is confident, affectionate and is making progress with his communication. He loves all the girls at New Moon and is always eager to get inside and reluctant to leave when I pick him up. Massive thanks to all the girls and special thanks to the owner and his key worker for all their help getting him on track. This nursery is definitely one in a million and I'm so glad he has another year here still.

Thank you for your lovely review, Megan. The team will be thrilled with your feedback.

A very welcoming and friendly homely setting. Both my children have settled well, my eldest has just started school now and was well developed for it. My youngest is in the baby room and looks forward to going to nursery. They use online learning journeys so we can see what they've been doing each day and add our own photos and milestones.

Thank you for your positive feedback Gemma, so great to hear. We really appreciate your continued support.

My daughter absolutely loves New Moon! She can't wait to tell me what she's done every day and has built little friendships with some other children already. She adores all of the ladies that look after her as do we and we have to drag her away at home time because she'd happily stay longer with all of her friends. Thank you for being awesome! xx

Thank you for your review, Jennifer. We really appreciate your amazing feedback.

New Moon is a first class Nursery. The staff are all incredible and our little boy loves every minute of his time there. He always learns something new and has plenty of opportunities to play inside and out. He is particularly fond of his key worker and he looks forward to seeing her every morning. Highly recommend this nursery.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We really appreciate your support.

My son goes to this nursery and the staff are very welcoming. I feel good about leaving him with his teachers. I know he is in safe hands. They are exuberant and make you feel at ease.

My son loves it there. Wont be changing nurseries any time soon. If you are looking for a place that can accommodate your child during his early years this might be the best place.
