Reviews

9.4 Little Turtle Day Nursery Kings Norton has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.383)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Little Turtle Day Nursery Kings Norton 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Turtle Day Nursery Kings Norton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.862 for Little Turtle Day Nursery Kings Norton is calculated as follows: ( (82 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 94 Ratings = 4.862

  • 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 4.521 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Turtle Day Nursery Kings Norton 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.521

  • 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 loves Banana Moon as did my daughter when she went there. The staff are all lovely and very supportive. It is also a brilliantly laid out space with amazing resources and activities.

My child found it difficult to adapt to start with (only just going with no tears). Staff were excellent with her and myself, always on hand to offer distractions to my child, and reassurance. My child's confidence is growing as she becomes more settled.

Although she is only just beginning to settle, she has learnt a great deal already - colours, animals and their sounds (ones that we hadn't taught) and her shapes.

Management have been brilliant in helping to settle my child, and never complain when we call 10+ times a day to ensure she is settled.

My son has been at the nursery since Mar 2016 when he was only 5 months old. The nursery is well equipped, clean and has an open layout and amazing garden for maximum freedom to explore. Also, all meals are cooked fresh and well balanced, so I don't have to worry about feeding my son after work when I am tired.
The staff and their strong ethos of safety and 'putting the child first' make the nursery OUTSTANDING in my opinion. They have kept track of my child and constantly update me on his development goals met and next steps. The nursery has an amazing planning system that creates bespoke activities to help my child achieve his next milestone.
My son has made a lot of friends and developed as a very confident young man.
Great work Banana Moon Day Nursery Kings Norton team!!!
I would recommend to anyone. Best nursery I have seen by far!

I was so nervous about sending my son to nursery. The staff here made it so easy and nothing ever seems too much trouble. My son has settled in really well and made lots of friends and has had a big boost in confidence. All the staff here have been brilliant!

Bindiya, Director at Little Turtle Day Nursery Kings Norton responded to this review on 13 Feb 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Your kind words are appreciated and will be passed onto the team.

I moved my daughter here from another nursery and it's been the best thing I could have ever done for her.

She's now happy and the staff here have really helped her come out of her shell.
She really enjoys every aspect of nursery life.

I don't know of any other nurseries in the area that offer the children Spanish lessons.

The nursery is always clean and tidy. Meals provided are all cooked from scratch on site.
I could not recommend this nursery enough nor thank them for helping and encouraging my daughter's development.

My daughter loves going to Banana Moon Nursery, always comes home happy. She gets to go out and learn about the area and plays at the park.
She enjoys the cooked meals and snacks.
They have a nice outdoor play area.
