Reviews

8.6 Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.603)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.869 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.869

  • 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 3.734 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.234

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

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this!

My son absolutely loves Banana Moon! The staff are very good and caring and really take the time to get to know the child's individual needs. My little angel isn't always so, and the team are there to help with any upsets to ensure my son always has a positive experience! He is learning so much and comes home with new words each day.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We really appreciate it!

We have been delighted with Banana Moon Crawley and our 4-year-old son and 10-month-old daughter are settled and extremely happy. The staff are very caring, highly trained and invest a lot of time and attention into our children. A testament to this is when our son was off ill one day, each and every member of staff individually stopped us to enquire about how he was when we came to pick up our daughter. The food is of a high standard, the rooms are large, airy, well equipped and full of activities. The nursery has been quick to respond to all of our queries along the way. We are very happy with the nursery.

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this, we really appreciate your feedback.

Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley is a brilliant nursery. They have put all of my sons needs first. His learning has come on leaps and bounds. My son who is now two has become more polite, well mannered and can now string sentences together. My son has only been there for 3 months and is really excited to go there in the mornings. The staff are lovely, kind and easy to talk to. A fantastic place to send children to.

I cannot recommend Banana Moon nursery enough. Each staff member is passionate about the care they provide to ensure each child feels safe, happy and their every need is met.

The setting is secure with fingerprint access and CCTV throughout and the children have daily access to the garden with a slide, trikes and a mud kitchen. The meals are well balanced and my child is never hungry when she leaves. The activities are fun but structured allowing constant learning and development.

As every parent will agree, finding a childcare provider and actually leaving your child with someone else is daunting but Banana Moon makes me feel confident that my daughter is being well looked after.

She has progressed in leaps and bounds in the few months she has attended and loves going to nursery so much that she waves goodbye to me every morning with a big smile.

I've found the staff at 'Banana Moon Day Nursery Crawley' to be helpful and enthusiastic. The space inside is well thought out with lots of rooms and areas. It was nice to use the nursery as soon as it opened as everything was new and fresh. I love hearing about all the activities my daughter does. It sounds like she has a jam packed day!

I was so nervous about leaving my baby for the first time but the manager made me feel so comfortable and relaxed from my first visit. I looked around about 3 times before deciding and each time everyone was so lovely. One member of staff is so great with our son too and he is always happy to see her. The nursery is clean and well kept, there are always lots of activities being done and our son is really growing in confidence and learning fast. I am very pleased he goes here and would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for your review, we are thrilled!

I entered the facility and I was highly impressed with what I saw. The rooms are well arranged and the manager and the deputy that I spoke with are real professionals. I believe that children will be positively impacted in RH11 area. It is a good support for the parents.
