Reviews

9.7 Banana Moon Day Nursery Heanor has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.713)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Heanor 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 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Heanor 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 4.713 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Heanor is calculated as follows: ( (157 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.713

  • 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 Banana Moon Day Nursery Heanor 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 9.8 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 child always tells me he's had a lovely day and explains what he's been up to during his mornings. He always seems really happy and comfortable with the staff/nursery nurses.
The carers are always friendly, helpful, approachable and most of all they always take an interest in what he's been up to while he's not been with them and I believe they care about him, his progression and make sure he's always happy!

My daughter has been at Banana Moon since she was six months old- she is now 2. She gets on with everyone at Banana Moon and the staff are so good at what they do. Her development is so good and she's ahead in most of her key skills which I put down to the quality staff.

Banana Moon has built a good reputation in Heanor. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and always on hand to discuss our child. The environment is very child focussed with a wide range of exciting activities. Banana Moon has made adjustments to their menu to fit our dietary needs also.

Banana Moon Day Nursery Heanor is a very friendly environment for children with the carers having strong bonds with the children. The rooms change around regularly so that the children get to experience different toys and stimulation.

The nursery has always followed the Early Years framework and we have had a good understanding of our child's development since she started at 9 months. Would recommend to friends and family.

Fantastic nursery, staff are brilliant with all the children in their care, often have visits to the local park and from relevant important people - ie the police, which fits into the theme of education for that period. Really good communication about all aspects of development and anything that has happened during the day. Very good range of meals through a varied choice and very good allergies and intolerances.
A really good nursery with fantastic staff and management. Really useful opening hours for working parents. Would highly recommend to anybody.

I am very satisfied with the childcare provided at the Banana Moon Nursery. My child has been looked after well and all the staff are doing great job. They provide a safe and friendly environment where children are happy and learning through play. Every day children have cooked meals and snacks which are made fresh at the premises. I receive reports on my child's progress and have regular conversation with the key worker. Due to excellent care provided at the nursery I feel very confident that my child will have a great start at school. Thank you to everyone at Banana Moon for the great job that you do.

My daughter has been attending Banana Moon day nursery for just over a year now. She absolutely loves it. She began in the baby room which has fantastic friendly staff and has just transferred over to the toddler room without any issues at all. Again the staff in the toddler room seem to be as friendly and nice as the baby room. She is excelling in all areas on the curriculum and they keep you informed where your child is, where they should be and give great advice on anything you can help your child with. I can definitely recommend this nursery to anyone, I feel my daughter is very well looked after and cared for as if she was with family. I can not fault the staff or facilities in anyway. The security is fantastic and staff are very vigilant, if not over cautious, which I would rather have at a nursery where my child attends. I feel very happy leaving her at Banana moon as I know she is in safe hands.

My son has been attending Banana Moon since he was 7 months old. He has always been happy, well looked after and has progressed so well. He is now off to school soon and they are helping with the transition and making it as smooth as possible for him. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking to send their child to a day nursery.
