Banana Moon Day Nursery Newton Heath

929 Oldham Road, Manchester M40 2EB

Banana moon staff work hard to ensure all children reach their full potential, providing a caring and stimulating environment in which they can explore and investigate. Staff observe, assess and plan for the individual needs of each child.

Banana Moon works hard to create strong lasting relationships with parents, to ensure the nursery is able to give each child the care that their parent hopes for. The nursery accepts that leaving a child to go to work can be hard for parents and so creates many opportunities for families to get involved with the nursery.

The nursery has large indoor and outside areas for children aged between 0 and five years that provide exciting spaces to play and learn in. All food is cooked onsite for children and everyday nutritional and healthy meals are served to children, giving them energy to carry out the rest of their nursery day.

All staff have DBS checks and all references are carried out.

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.696 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Newton Heath is calculated as follows: ( (201 Excellents x 5) + (61 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 273 Ratings = 4.696

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Newton Heath is based on 6 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 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.417

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

The staff in Banana Moon are very dedicated and devoted to the children. This can be seen as my child progresses and improves in communication.
Also, my child looks forward to going to the nursery and goes eagerly running inside without even saying goodbye.
This just shows how much he loves going there.

My twins are 11 months old, they started attending nursery at 9 months.
They have settled in very well, they smile at staff when dropped off, they seem confident in the setting and are enjoying making new relationships.
Staff are friendly and very positive towards my babies. They celebrate their achievements e.g first steps. They keep me informed and up to date of everyday events, e.g feedback sheets.

Since my daughter has moved down to pre-school she has learnt new words, she has become more advanced in her speech and understanding, her development has become more advanced. I am very proud of the support given to myself as a parent and my daughter as a child.

My son loves going to nursery, the staff are so good and put the kid's needs first. The play area is so well laid out safety is 10/10. My son has grown up to be a credit due to Banana Moos work, time and effort. Please give credit to all the staff, they all give 100%. I sometimes take cakes in as a token of appreciation.

My son has been going to this nursery and has come on very well, as he was not confident around people and after a year he mixes well with staff and children.

My grandson is always happy to go to this nursery. He is well looked after and they provide a variety of activities for the him to do. They hold special events i.e colour days and have a strategic learning plan in place for each child (this is discussed at parents night or whenever appropriate). My grandson started to attend this nursery approximately 8 months ago and he has come on leaps and bounds from his previous nursery where he had problems because he wasn't getting enough/the right attention - these problems have gone away because the staff attend to the children in a positive way. If a child does something wrong they are taken away from the situation and it is explained to them in a way that they will understand. They also provide a healthy variety of meals, although my grandson is not a fussy eater he usually has two helpings of dinner and tea. If I express any concerns for whatever reason then they are dealt with quickly.
