Reviews

9.7 Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.665)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham 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 47 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 19 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 4.665 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham is calculated as follows: ( (397 Excellents x 5) + (141 Goods x 4) + (22 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 561 Ratings = 4.665

  • 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 Altrincham is based on 19 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 13 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.

From the very first contact we made with the director, we felt reassured that our two daughters would be given every chance and help to blend into the nursery routine. The progress our children made during their month stay was astonishing, not only in the quality of their spoken English but the richness in cultural activities and experiences that sadly we lack where we live in Greece.
Politeness, cleanliness, respect and safety were high on the learning agenda and the facilities were very well maintained. Our children have come away from this nursery with experiences that will improve their communication skills with new children from different cultures. Also a big thank you to all the caring staff that were an inspiration to us, the parents, on many levels - patience most of all.
We wish you all a great future at this nursery, congratulations.

My son attends Banana Moon Altrincham four days a week and he absolutely loves it. He is encouraged to participate in all activities presented to him; I was recently told he was singing and dancing away to Spanish songs! The management are excellent at responding to emails and requests; nothing is ever too much trouble for them. The staff are friendly and helpful and seem to care a lot about my son, his needs and his development. The outdoor space has been greatly improved with a range of play equipment, a mud kitchen, a sandpit and a variety of outdoor toys. Recently, the nursery has acquired a rabbit which my son loves to watch. The food is varied and freshly made each day. Overall, Banana Moon is an excellent nursery and I would recommend to anyone who wants a caring and safe nursery for their child.

Thank you for taking the time to review us and provide us with your feedback. This will certainly be shared with our staff team, particularly in Baby Moons. Your comments are greatly appreciated and your daughter is an absolute angel with a very contagious smile! Thank you.

Overall I am happy with the nursery care, the staff and management. My child seems to be happy when he under their care and environment.
The only thing I would like to mention is about the food, as a mum of two children I feel they can improve and put some effort into the food that is provided to the children in Banana Moon.
My concern is only about the food they provide, I would appreciate it if they could provide quality food, as I feel this is very much essential for their development. I expect some changes and improvement in the food.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us, your feedback is always greatly appreciated and will be fed back to all staff. Your son has made tremendous progress during his time with us and will continue to do so I'm positive! Thank you also for being such enthusiastic parents, your involvement in nursery events is an example to us all! Thank you.

Having visited several local nurseries, Banana Moon Altrincham struck a chord for us on the first visit. The management/staff are great and extremely cooperative, the nursery environment is clean and its nice that the different age groups have a floor each to themselves so respective staff can concentrate, plan and handle age specific activities. Outdoor space is cheerful and well planned and a treat to see kids enjoying themselves.

I believe the most honest review comes from the kids themselves and their smiling faces.... a week into nursery and my son says... "I don't like nursery Mamma...I LOVE nursery!!!"

Thank you Suzana for a lovely and very honest response. Your son has really come out of his shell in nursery and is completely engaged from start to finish. Your comments will most certainly be shared with staff and I believe that you are absolutely correct in saying the most honest review comes from the children themselves. Thank you.

Superbly run nursery with fantastic staff.
Our daughter loves going there 3 days a week and sometimes even asks to go in on weekends! Couldn't ask for more than that, to be honest.

The outside space has been greatly improved recently also and will be a lovely place for the children as the weather brightens up over spring/summer.

Thank you, for your very kind words, these will certainly be shared with our staff team. You have been on this journey with us for the past 2 years and we are grateful for your support and loyalty. Your daughter is an absolute delight, a very active member of our family. Thank you.

Banana Moon Altrincham is a Nursery I can trust. Very educated, supportive and friendly team. Supports Parents and Children. Children get quality and healthy food. Looks after Parents and Children's needs. If there are any questions or concerns in mind, then they get discussed and sorted out quickly. Quality equipment and bright rooms. It is clean, well equipped and modern but the Nursery still feels like a home. Everything you want from a high standard and good Nursery. Happy Children=happy Parents. We also love the new outside play area. Also, safety is taken very seriously. I am so glad that we found this fantastic nursery after a long search. Like many other parents, we are very demanding when it comes to childcare, but Banana Moon looks after your needs. Our daughter started when she was 12 months old and is currently 25 months old. She comes home happy and talks about the activities they have done on that day.

Thank you, Aylin for such a wonderful review!! The time you took to feedback to us is greatly appreciated and will most certainly be shared with our staff team. After such a long time with us, it truly is wonderful to see how much your daughter has flourished in nursery, that day she waved goodbye and walked in with a big smile, brought tears to my eyes. She is such a happy child, her favorite activity being reading books. I am pleased we are able to provide the service you are looking for, this is our vision. Thank you for being on this journey with us.

Our daughter has attended nursery since she was 18 months old and just moved to pre-school group now. She enjoys going to Banana Moon and is always well looked after. We also extremely like it for cleanliness, very attentive and friendly staff and how our daughter developed after attending classes. We can also see that management continuously invest in the nursery and its facilities. We would definitely recommend this nursery to others.

Looking forward to see how she does in Full Moons over the coming months. Thank you.

Cannot fault the staff here. Extremely caring and genuinely want to do right by each child.
New garden facilities are excellent and have massively benefited the nursery and each child's development. Any issues raised are addressed professionally and the owners are always asking parents for feedback to improve. We couldn't be happier!

I have found that the girls who work there do a fab job and my daughter is happy and enjoys going to nursery!

I do find that the complaints are not taken well and are met with resistance. When nursery first opened I found that the management cared more now nursery is full they don't seem to care as much.

Thank you, Aimee, for taking the time to provide us with valuable feedback. It is greatly appreciated and will be shared with our staff. Your son is a charming little boy who has really flourished in Full Moons! Thank you.

Banana Moon Altrincham is a nurturing environment for children.
Their methods of promoting self-confidence, self-awareness and social skills are excellent. All of the staff are professional and caring towards all of the children in their care.
The facilities are outstanding, the play equipment for the children is minimal and well structured to afford each child free play as well as controlled educational play.
The nursery provides an overview of each child's day, which affords each parent to know what their child has got up to in order to promote positive communication.
The meals and snacks provided are healthy as well as varied.
Particularly positive is the nursery's approach to early years education. Each play session is structured with an individual learning plan with a focus on personal goals over expectations. The staff are friendly and approachable.
My child has thrived at Banana Moon.

Thank you for your valued feedback and review. Yes, your daughter has settled into nursery extremely well, her enthusiasm is contagious! I am very pleased to hear that she is making very good progress and development, and more importantly, she is having fun! Please continue to let us know if there is anything we can do to improve; we are looking forward to the new garden and baby moons unit which are due to open shortly. Thank you.

My 11-month-old has been attending Banana Moon since 6 months old and settled in. Straight away the staff were second to none, attentive and very caring!
When I come to pick her up she is always happy playing and the staff give me a full overview of her whole day and also a summary sheet which is nice to show her dad when we get home.
I would highly recommend Banana Moon as the days I work I know she is well looked after and cared for.

Thank you so much for your comments, Emma! These are greatly appreciated and will be shared with all staff, particularly under 2s. Your daughter is an absolute angel and has come along so much in just a short time. Smiles all around all day long....a true princess.

From the first time I walked into Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham with our son, I could feel the warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff go above and beyond to make him feel part of the family and have been very accommodating of our personal situation. We moved to Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham from another nursery and were worried as to how our son would settle in, but thanks to everyone there, it's been an easy transition and we're so glad we made the move. We would recommend Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham to anyone!

It is nice to read that things are going well for you and your son here at Banana Moon Altrincham and we look forward to creating many more memories during his time with us.

We feel Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham is part of our family! All the nursery nurses are familiar with my son and remembered his name quickly. We moved to Banana Moon Day Nursery Altrincham in April 2016 as the previous nursery didn't really suit us so we were very worried if my son would settle or not. Although he cries in the morning, he seems to enjoy being at nursery and interacts with teachers and other children. What we love the most is the staff. Everyone is friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to review us Miho. Your comments and feedback are valued and we will be sharing these with our staff. Your son is has settled in extremely well and is certainly part of our family here at Banana Moon Altrincham. Please continue to provide us with your comments so that we can improve our provision.

I have picked my niece up a few times from nursery and it's amazing. The staff are extremely informative about what she has done, what she's eaten and how she's been during the day. The staff even showed me pictures of my niece doing various activities and playing in the garden. My niece enjoys telling me about her day on the way home as well. She really enjoys the food and loves going to nursery every day. I couldn't fault this nursery or its staff at all. The nursery owner seems very engaged with parents as well, she was telling me about the garden expansion and the dedicated baby area they are building. I can't wait to see these changes!

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Your comments are greatly appreciated and will be shared with all staff. Your son brings smiles with him every morning and always gives me a high five when I see him! He will surely be missed but I'm positive he will be a fantastic big brother! We are always open to suggestions from parents and carers about ways in which to improve our service, so please continue to share your comments with us. Hope to see you again! Best wishes.

My son turned 2 in July and they have been very accommodative in making the transitions from one room to the toddlers very smoothly. He has settled in very well. They are very good at addressing parental concerns. The typical example being, when I requested them to keep small objects away from my son as he puts them in his mouth, they acknowledged my concern and removed it out of his reach. Overall very friendly staff and a good environment for my son's development. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Thank you for your valued feedback Durga. Your son has settled in extremely well into our Toddlers room and is a changed boy. Looking forward to seeing him grow even more.

Excellent nursery. From the owners down to the cook, every member of staff is genuine and polite. The children are always happy and engaged in activities everytime I go into the building to pick up my daughter.
Since starting at the nursery I have been really impressed with how much she has progressed with educational things like the alphabet, numbers and even singing nursery rhymes.
I would recommend this nursery to anyone, it's excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, your comments are much appreciated and will be fed back to the staff team. Your daughter is a pleasure to have in our nursery and she has settled in extremely well. Recently, she's graduated to preschool room which has enabled her to further her progress in her learning and development. Well done and thank you!

My grandson is 1 year old and he has settled in extremely well. Staff are wonderful, they look after him like he is their own child. He loves the Spanish songs and is now also learning to share with other children. Also the team are very helpful if I ever have any concerns.

Fantastic nursery that really cares about the children, their well being, education and contact with parents. My child is very happy at the nursery and learns more every day. They have a great understanding of child development and are able to support all different children in every way that is needed ie. language, potty training and behavioural skills. When I go to work, I know my child will be taken care of in the way I would and feel safe and loved. Absolutely one of the best child care facilities I have dealt with.

These are some lovely comments Nynke, thank you. It's extremely important for us to know that what we are providing for your child is what you would want for him, please continue to let us know how we can improve our service further. Your son has grown so much since joining us and we are so proud of how quickly he has settled into over 2s and his interaction with other children is to be commended. Thank you both for your on going support.

I would recommend this nursery to everyone! My child has come on leaps and leaps! All staff are very friendly and make sure your children are happy. The security is very well managed, I know my child is on a very safe environment, and if the staff are unsure on a new person picking up, they ring you to make sure before letting your child out of the place. I cannot say a bad word about this nursery.

Thank you Rachel for your wonderful comments! I will be sharing this with our team. It's really nice to hear feedback from our parents. Your daughter brings smiles to everyone each day she is here and she has definitely come on leaps and bounds since joining. It's all upwards from here! Thank you.

My son started at Banana Moon about 9 months ago and has continued to flourish and grow since he began, during the two days he attends.
The nursery has an amazing policy and strives to help and encourage the development of the children through fun learning activities and play, which we are encouraged to also develop at home. I also love how they involve the parents by giving us homework, where we can bring in pictures or tell stories of milestones that our child has completed at home to share with them, helping to continue a full rounded home/nursery learning environment.
The staff at the nursery are very competent and are able to help and encourage the development of the children, my son has enjoyed learning with the staff and has become very attached to some of them, which is a great comfort to me, as I know he is happy and comfortable within the nursery.
All in all I am very happy with Banana Moon as a nursery and look forward to seeing what new fun and exciting things my son will be learning in the future months to come.

Since my grand daughter has started at Banana Moon she has come on so much. She settled really quickly and the staff really helped her. They are always helpful when I collect her and tell me about her day.

A great nursery! My nephew was unsettled at first as he was new to the environment but he has settled in really well and is now a confident little fellow!
He loves to meet other children and is not apprehensive anymore.
The activities are age appropriate and he is able to explore and learn about his environment with staff always being vigilant and alert.
The meals are good and he is well fed and looked after. The staff have always been approachable, friendly, informative and helpful. This has been a positive experience for us and we will continue his time there until he is ready for kindergarten. We are very pleased and impressed with his growth and progress!

My niece loves going to nursery everyday, she gets a lot of attention from the staff and enjoys all the activities they provide, and loves playing on the new touch screen computer they just installed! She also started the swimming lessons through the nursery as well, she was hesitant at first but now adores swimming with her friends. She gets a lot of encouragement from the staff to do things by herself, which has really helped her come out of her shell, she used to be very shy and hesitant around new people and hated being left at nursery, but now she cries when she leaves and can't wait to go back. The choice of food is excellent as well, the staff always inform me of what shes eaten and even cater to my niece's specific allergies.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, your feedback is much appreciated. Your son is an absolutely delight to have in nursery and we will be sad to see him leave next month but wish him all the best in his new primary school and hopefully he will be able to continue swimming lessons at the leisure centre in the future. It is a great talent!

As a parent, I am satisfied with the care and attention received by my 2 year old.
Its been about a month now since I have booked in my child. After the initial (and expected hiccups), my child now looks forward to going to Banana Moon.

Aspects that I commend the institution during my month-long engagement is about their care and attention to my child, flexibility to my requirements and daily feedback about activities and food. The staff are cheerful, and engages well with both the children and carers.

Another important aspect is that the management is much more mature and professional than (as my experience goes) other day care institutions.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Your son is an absolute delight to have in nursery and he brings smiles to all children and staff everyday. He absolutely loves getting involved and we like to think of your family as one of our oldest families and cannot thank you enough for your continued support as both our families grow.

I would like to say how fantastic the whole team at Banana Moon Altrincham are. This is from the first taster sessions to the everyday care of my daughter. They fully understand every aspect of child care and my little girl has benefited from their support so much. The activities are different each day from drawing, writing, singing, dancing, role play and much more and it is all revolved around their personal targets. To hear my daughter say how much fun she has had but also tell me what she has learnt is a joy. The fresh food that is cooked is also fantastic, very healthy and very balanced. I could not wish for a better place for my child's development whilst we're at work. They get plenty of fresh air and have so much to do. The nursery also offer extra activities such as swimming lessons at a brilliant price. Just an amazing place to be and would highly recommend to anyone. They're a great team.

Joined: 2015

Description:

With over 30 years of combined Teaching and Management experience, Aly & Sabreena Hansraj are proud to be the Directors of a Nursery which focuses not only on the highest levels of care offered, but also by implementing a strategic development plan which challenges young minds and captures their imagination. We passionately believe that change comes from within. It is not just the responsibility of an individual but the combined efforts of an entire team. Our ethos is based on a long term commitment, a journey that will nurture the development of these curious minds, one that will eventually lead to children who aspire to be better, push themselves harder and most importantly have the determination to never give up.

Having two children of our own, we completely understand the frustration caused by inconsistent standards offered. We expect high but often we get low. We want better but due to lifes’ everyday challenges, we cannot dedicate enough time to our kids. Here at Banana Moon, we are your partners, your helping hand, your pillars of support. Our children need to be in a safe and clean environment. They need to learn and adapt. Their skills need to be advanced. They need to be in a home away from home. They need to feel secure and valued but without losing sight of the fact that they also need to be children.

With lots of space for your child to be creative, to explore and to grow, fresh food, a nutritious menu and plenty to discover, we are determined to go that extra mile. We want to hear and see it from your prospective, so come on in, have a look around and speak to a member of the team to find out more!
