Reviews

9.5 Banana Moon Day Nursery Kingsbury has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.518)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Kingsbury 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 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Kingsbury in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 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 4.737 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Kingsbury is calculated as follows: ( (242 Excellents x 5) + (77 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 323 Ratings = 4.737

  • 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 4.781 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Kingsbury 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.781

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

Our daughter has been attending since August 2016, the support provided during her settling in stage was excellent. Since our daughter started the improvement in her is fantastic, she plays and interacts with children having not been around them previously so well her eating and dining skills have come on so well along with her speech. Any concerns you have with your child there is always advice and support given and all staff go above and beyond to help. Daily diary sheets are given which tells you what they have been doing, what they have eaten etc and verbal feedback is given each day. I can't recommend this nursery enough, the difference in our daughter is superb.

Many thanks for your lovely comments ... I'm so happy that your son has settled in well and is enjoying his time with us.

My daughter enjoys her time at nursery, joining in with different activities to help her with her development. Since coming to nursery, she has continued to improve with words and communication with others. It has helped to enhance her developmental skills by feeding herself, colouring, drawing and painting. she has also been able to start interacting with other children.

Thanks for your feedback.... the girls work hard to build strong relationships with the children so I am glad to hear that your son has a strong bond with the team.

My daughter has been going to the nursery now for almost two years. She has come on leaps and bounds with her confidence and social interaction. Her numbers and letters skills are coming on leaps and bounds and she has a special bond with her key worker who we are happy with.

My son has attended Banana Moon Day Nursery Kingsbury since June 2014. As parents, we couldn't be more happier with him being there. The staff are all approachable and his key workers since being in the baby room have been amazing and he wouldn't be where he is today without them. We look forward to sending our daughter here in 2017.

This is a really fantastic nursery. My little boy has attended for 3 years, since he was 13 months old, and he has thrived there. Staff are caring, enthusiastic, attentive, creative, and seem to really love their jobs. It's a small nursery so all the children know each other and all the staff, so they seem to settle quickly. I love the variety of activities on offer - loads of creative play, messy play, sensory play, role play, and two great outdoor spaces to play in.

Many thanks for such a lovely review. It's been a pleasure having your son and it's great to know you are happy with the care provided.

My husband and I have been incredibly impressed with all aspects of the nursery. My daughter has attended the nursery since she was 6 months old and I have had been looked after with the highest level of care. There is excellent communication with parents and opportunities for face to face conversations daily, daily feedback form, formal parents evenings, updates via email and Facebook page and the opportunity to regularly add to the learning journal with "moments to share" at home. The new outside area is fab and children are regularly taken to the park, postbox and local shops for additional learning opportunities. A fantastic nursery that I will continue to recommend highly to others. 10/10

WOW..... thank you so much for your amazing comments. When parents really appreciate what we do daily and how hard the girls work it makes us extremely proud of what we and the team have achieved since opening in 2013. Thank you again.

My child has always loved coming to nursery, she always says she's enjoyed her day. She has a daily allergy and she has always been given a good range of food. She has made a very close friend. We are moving nursery only to fit in with our lifestyle and another school where our son goes to currently and will be starting school there in September. A lovely nursery.

Absolutely brilliant nursery. I was worried about leaving my daughter with people I didn't know however she loves it and has settled in really well and has been attending for 5 months now.

In the 6 months our daughter has been attending nursery we feel she has improved in so many ways. Also she has developed new skills and improved in things she wasn't very confident in doing. Along with these skills she has come on with her speech and social skills. We are very happy with where our daughter is at.

My daughter is due to start in July and she is really looking forward to it.

My child is very happy at this nursery. He is now 7 months old and has been attending for two months. He loves the staff here and always smiles when we walk through the door. He loves the attention he gets and the personalised learning he receives. We always have an update at the end of the day of his activities and food intake. My son is always tired when he gets home and needs an early bedtime, which is great :) All staff are professional, friendly and genuinely care for my child.

I have recently taken on the role as Nursery Manager whilst Hannah is on Maternity Leave, and I will be continuing my role as Under 2's senior. I have a great relationship with the children and parents.

It's safe to say I really enjoy my role and I love seeing the children develop their personalities as they grow.

With only 9 babies maximum in the room at any one time, we build a special bond with all of our children and cuddles are a great perk of the job!
