Reviews

9.4 Banana Moon Day Nursery Sale has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.432)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sale 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sale in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.876 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sale is calculated as follows: ( (198 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 225 Ratings = 4.876

  • 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 4.556 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Sale is based on 5 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.556

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

My son attends Banana Moon in Sale two days a week. He is always very excited to go to nursery and talks about all the fun activities he does including stretch 'n' grow and music lessons.
All of the staff are very friendly, and trained to a high standard including some of them being qualified primary school teachers.
I always feel welcomed and at ease when dropping my son off in the morning and picking him up.
They always give a good handover of what he's been doing that day, what he's eaten, how long he's slept for etc.
The nursery is very clean, equipment is to a high standard.
I have no doubt that my son is being very well looked after and has everything he needs.
Thank you to all the staff at Banana Moon.

My daughter has attended Banana Moon for nearly two years now. Every group she has been in has been excellent. The time and care each child receives is great and my daughter enjoys the daily and weekly activities that they have planned.
I recommend this nursery to all my friends that have children of a young age.

We recently started this nursery - just at the end of August, where we were previously, we had a bad experience and we were afraid to leave our daughter anywhere. The staff at Banana Moon were supportive, respected our requests and paid extra attention to our daughter to ensure her adjustment process went smoothly. She was never left to cry - always given extra cuddles when needed. In a short space of time, she moved from being a hyper clingy child to an independent toddler. She loves being with the nursery staff and the children. The painting, outside play, sensory, story time, music, are all activities she thoroughly enjoys. The little review cards we get every day fills us in and I'm always shocked at the exciting different foods that is served every day. Ultimately my daughter is excited to go there and is happy at Banana Moon.

We have been very impressed with the nursery and noticed a great development in our son's abilities (including speech) since he attended the nursery. Pleased to see how the staff engage very well with the children and get them involved in different activities. It is clear to us that our son is very happy attending the nursery.

My daughter was very upset whilst she was settling into nursery (aged one) but the staff at Banana Moon were so lovely and patient, it didn't take long before she was happily sitting down to have her breakfast when we dropped her off.
She is developing so quickly and it's lovely to hear new words and songs coming through her speech. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Banana Moon Sale.

My daughter loves her time at Banana Moon Day Nursery Sale. This is the first place she had been to without me and she settled in really well. She gets excited when we turn the corner and she realises where she's going! The staff are lovely and know what my daughter enjoys playing with the toy animals so have them ready for her when she arrives which is a lovely attention to detail. I'm always impressed by the variety of food that she eats whilst there too! The nursery itself is clean and airy and most importantly welcoming!

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We love looking after her and hope she continues to grow and develop here at Banana Moon Sale.

I feel very safe and comfortable leaving both my children at nursery. The staff are very friendly and approachable. The children have become more confident being left at childcare. Their days are full of activities, fun times in the garden, the nursery works towards their development and progression. I go to work feeling happy that my children are in good hands and they will do lots of things that we might not do at home.

Hi Danielle! Thanks so much for your review, we're so glad you like the nursery :)

My daughter is very happy at Banana Moon and talks about it all the time at home! She has made friends very quickly and loves every day there. I was impressed by the attention given to the fact that my daughter speaks two languages and the staff's interest to know some main phrases and words in Albanian.

Hi Emma, what a lovely comment thanks so much!

The nursery is fantastic, I can't fault it. As a father, my previous day care has felt quite daunting but not here. They are always inviting us in for different things and my son loves it here. The garden is a plus point as my son loves digging for worms etc. He also loves the soft play and the local walks they go on so often. If I have any more children they'll definitely be coming to Banana Moon.

The nursery is excellent! I feel comfortable leaving my daughter here and have done since day 1. the team have always made me feel confident in their abilities and they are all warm and friendly. Fees are reasonable and do reflect the services provided. The girls are always telling me what she has done and where they have been, along with involving me in her development and also their plans for developing the nursery. Finally the nursery is clean and well resourced and the fresh high quality home made food is a credit to the nursery - very healthy too!

Very happy with this brand new nursery. Lovely friendly staff and always a great welcome and goodbye. Baby seems very content here and big smiles when she comes home. (13 months old). Also very flexible and accommodating to my shift pattern. Great opening and closing times, that bit later helps.
