Reviews

9.2 Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.184)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.795 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley is calculated as follows: ( (126 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.795

  • 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 4.389 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.389

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

Thank You for your review. It is a pleasure working alongside you all as a family and seeing the growth and development within the setting.

The nursery is great and our son has really developed there since starting over the summer.

He was unsettled when he first started but has formed bonds with the staff and now he really enjoys it. He does a wide range of activities which aid his development and we really like the staff.

Thank You for your review. It has been a pleasure working alongside you and your family and we look forward to supporting the development and progress further.

Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley provide excellent childcare for both my children (ages 3 and 1). The staff are attentive, listen to parents concerns and focus on the children's individual needs. The learning they provide has helped develop my 3-year old in a short space of time and he has increased in confidence brilliantly. The staff follow the routines of the children to ensure they feel settled and at ease. I would highly recommend this nursery, the staff and the management team.

Thank you for your lovely review, it is a pleasure to work alongside you as a family and the children.

Banana Moon take great care of our daughter. They are attentive to her social, emotional and educational development. She has so much fun and they take the time to really get to know her and what motivates her.
They provide a wide range of experiences.

Charlotte Pooler, Nursery Manager at Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley responded to this review on 19 Oct 2017:

Thank you for your kind words and ongoing commitment and support to Banana Moon.

The care at Banana Moon has been really excellent. My son really struggled to be left with anyone and the staff had to work extremely hard to help. They let me stay for extended settling sessions and were really flexible about approaches to help us. The baby room is much larger than others I have seen and has a separate sleep room and change area which was important for us. They also have a lot of time outside in a safe play area which was also important. The staff were really helpful when my son was diagnosed with a milk allergy and they are really affectionate towards him.

Although children have key workers (who are excellent) they may not be around 100% of the time and there are bank staff as well, which can be an issue with attachment. All the staff, however, without exception have been very professional and cared for my son beautifully. They have also given us lots of helpful advice too and transitioned him between rooms well.

Charlotte Pooler, Nursery Manager at Banana Moon Day Nursery Moseley responded to this review on 27 Jun 2017:

Thank You for your kind words Laura - We are keyworkers for our families as well as our children. We are pleased to hear we have been able to make these transitions as comfortable as possible for you as parents as well as for your little one. We continue to maintain our regular bank staff within the rooms to support the attachment bonds for the children.

Our son spends two full days a week at Banana Moon and has for two months. The staff have always been really friendly and quick to answer any questions about anything. It took about 3 weeks for him to settle fully, during which everyone gave us detailed feedback about his activities, sleeping, eating and general chat about what he likes. We have always felt like he is well looked after and has a fun time - he is certainly tired at the end of the day even after a long post-lunch sleep! The nursery has comforting security and CCTV and a tank of friendly fish!

Thank You for your lovely feedback, Chris. We are here to support our families and children and it has been a wonderful experience welcoming you all into the Banana Moon Family. We are very pleased that we have been able to make this a smooth transition for you all.

Our son loves his time at Banana Moon and has been there since he was 5 months old. He has now moved into the Teenies and is having a great time with the staff and his friends. Everyone is friendly and professional and really care about the children. Thank you!

My son is always greeted by someone with a happy smiling face. I always get a detailed breakdown of what he has been doing /eating etc. He only goes once a week but has a good relationship with his workers. The food is healthy. I feel happy when I leave him that he will be well looked after. The staff are lovely and happy and caring. :)

Our son seems to enjoy nursery. All of the staff are very caring towards him, and were understanding when we were late once to collect him. I have no concerns leaving our son at nursery - he was allowed to settle in over a few sessions before I returned to work. Our son participates in a wide range of activities whilst at nursery and is learning a lot. The nursery takes safeguarding very seriously.

Our son has been attending Banana Moon since August 2014 and we couldn't ask for better care. They recently helped with the potty training process and have been very patient with him. He thoroughly enjoys his days at Banana Moon and is always happy to tell us about his day and what he has done.
He is now transitioning to the next room and we feel confident he will adjust to this well as the staff have introduced him to the room gradually.

The staff are very prompt in dealing with any queries and the whole experience is excellent.

My little girl started here full time at this nursery when she was 7 months old. I was very apprehensive about her being there every day, so I could return to work. All of the staff are incredible, they look after her as if she was their own. She has now been attending for 12 months and she absolutely loves it. I know she is happy there. Everyday I am told about all the activities she has taken part in and I am amazed. Her development is excellent due to the social aspect - I can not thank the staff enough, they are angels!
