Reviews

7.9 Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.909)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.833 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.076 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.076

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

My husband and I are so pleased with the care provided by Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield. The staff obviously have huge amounts of pride in what they do and this is reflected in the fabulous and positive manner in which they interact with the children. The children undertake a variety of daily activities (if they wish to) from French and Spanish lessons to different dance activities. The children are encouraged to be confident, respectful individuals and are able to express themselves in the way they feel comfortable. We go to work knowing our son is genuinely compassionately cared for. We couldn't be more grateful

Stephanie Horsfield, Manager at Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield responded to this review on 27 Mar 2017:

Thank you for your kind words, Kelly, It is our absolute pleasure to care for your son here at Banana Moon Sheffield. The team work very closely together to create a safe, stimulating and loving environment for all our children. I will pass on your review to the girls for a lovely Monday morning boost.

Me and my partner are very pleased with this nursery. The staff are professional and supportive and my son is always happy to see them. They offer a good range of play activities to help development and learning, activities are changed/rotated often. I feel confident going to work knowing that my child is well cared for in a safe and fun environment.

With the help of the excellent staff our child (who can be a bit shy at times) settled in at the nursery quickly and she now loves going there. The nursery has a large outdoor area and they spend time outside every day. The staff are extraordinarily friendly and very gentle with the children. They played a huge part in making the transition to nursery as easy as possible for our child. All the learning at the nursery is well documented and parents receive daily care sheets to get an insight into what their child has been up to. The food is freshly prepared on site and our daughter seems to enjoy it. Overall I would highly recommend Banana Moon Day Nursery Sheffield.

I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough. We are so thankful we came across Banana Moon. Sadly we had to remove our daughter from her previous nursery we placed her in which ended up totally destroying her confidence and making her very anxious about being left or using the toilet. At this point we came across Banana Moon who when we explained the situation went way above the call of duty to make our daughter settle in, rebuild her potty training confidence and she absolutely loves it here. The facilities are wonderful and possibly the best outdoor space we have ever come across with a large walled landscaped play garden where they have picnics and snacks! From music, French and Spanish classes and museum trips this nursery provides it all (and our daughter only does 2 days a week!). The freshly cooked food on the premises offers a great variety and rooms are bright, light and airy. The staff are superb and our daughter genuinely adores her key worker; she always comes back bursting with things to tell and things to show us about her day with great excitement and enthusiasm. Her speech has significantly improved since attending this nursery and her self confidence is fully restored again. She even asks to go to nursery! Every session is followed up with a full write up covering all of her day, and the chance to ask questions if needed. The nursery really has helped bring out our daughters personality again, and as a military family we are used to seeking new establishments due to frequent moves. We have visited many nurseries, but I cannot state how blessed we are that our daughter attends Banana Moon and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
