Reviews

8 Banana Moon Day Nursery Welwyn Garden City has a Review Score of 8 (7.960)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Welwyn Garden City is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Welwyn Garden City 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 4.883 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Welwyn Garden City is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.883

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

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.077

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

I can highly recommend Banana Moon as I have found them to be very respectful of all the worries a mother has when leaving their child. They were on hand to answer any questions I had, offered multiple settling in sessions to make sure my daughter was happy and that they had the time to get to know her. She is stimulated and happy to be there. Her key worker is approachable and clearly passionate and interested in my child's welfare. We are very happy parents!!

My little lady loves going to Banana Moon, she has a lot of fun and it's really helped her with her speech and her skills. She's learning and growing so fast. The staff are all amazing, they're friendly and helpful, and the food is amazing too! It's safe and professional but also relaxed and homely.

Hi Claire

Thank you for your kind words!

We are so glad that your daughter is settled and enjoying the nursery!

Warm Regards

Asif

My son has only been at Banana Moon couple of months yet and he loved it from day one. Staff are lovely, very professional and seems they are really good with children. Nursery is well equipped inside and out in the garden and kids seem to be always doing something interesting. Also, they keep us well informed about news in nursery and the weekly/monthly themes. Very happy :))

Hi Jana

Thank you very much for your comments.

The standard of care is excellent at Banana Moon WGC. Having had a negative experience at a previous nursery, I have found it a breath of fresh air. I feel the staff genuinely care about and know my son well. It feels like they are just as excited to see my son develop and reach new milestones as I am!
They have a very child and family focused ethos, which is evident in every aspect of care. I would happily recommend them to my family and friends.

Hi Jo

Thank you very much for your comments.

The staff at Banana Moon have been very welcoming to my 1 and 2 year olds. The standard of the facility is of a very high, myself and my wife can see the progress from their time at Banana at home and feel very comfortable leaving our children in their care.
