  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Battersea in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.417 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Battersea is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.417

  • 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 4.095 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Battersea is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 11.6 positive Reviews (58 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 11.6 Target = 0.345

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

8.5 Banana Moon Day Nursery Battersea has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.512)

We are extremely happy with Banana Moon Day Nursery Battersea. Our daughter is 2 1/2 and has been attending part-time since she was 10 months old. She has formed excellent attachments with staff and enjoys the play and learning she is developing. The outdoor space is a particular draw to the nursery, as is the very new facilities. Recommended.

We've been really pleased we chose Banana Moon, our son has developed and learnt so much there. He is really loved and cared for by the staff and really enjoys going. The outdoor space is incredible for our area and the indoor facilities are really new and clean and with the right amount of toys and activities.

They are flexible with extending sessions where needed. The food is great and our son eats much more healthily than at home!

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We really appreciate it. Many thanks from the Banana Moon team.

My son has attended the nursery for 4 days a week for the last 8 months. The key staff are experienced and very caring and my son is settled, happy and developing well. The facilities are new and the outside space is wonderful. In the summer the children can move freely between inside and out which gives them freedom to play and explore in a safe environment. The food is varied and the children are often involved in preparation and cooking activities. The opening hours and location offer great flexibility for our family and the fees are good value for money compared to other nurseries in the area.

My daughter started this nursery in February 2016 and has grown and developed so much. The staff there are all wonderful and informative.
The meals they provide are a healthy balance and very nutritious.
If I had another child I would be sending them here.

Dear Lorelle

Thank you for posting your review .We are delighted you would recommend us to others.

Many thanks from the team at Banana Moon Battersea.

My daughter has been attending this nursery for over a month now and I can already see the transition my daughter has gone through. My daughter is much more confident and independent. Her vocabulary has improved immensely and she is flourishing into a confident little girl. The environment, staff and facilities are impeccable. I'm so pleased to have chosen this nursery to enable my daughter to have a good start in her early years experience. I must add it is also very affordable company to other nurseries in the area.
