Reviews

9.2 Banana Moon Day Nursery Aberdeen Dyce has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.231)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Aberdeen Dyce 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 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Aberdeen Dyce in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 4.922 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Aberdeen Dyce is calculated as follows: ( (311 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 335 Ratings = 4.922

  • 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 4.309 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Aberdeen Dyce 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 16.2 positive Reviews (81 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 16.2 Target = 0.309

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

Our daughter loves her time at Banana Moon Day Nursery. She has attended the nursery for nearly a year now and we are delighted with the standard of care she receives.

Staff are lovely and really get to know your little one ensuring the highest levels of care at all times.

We recently increased her days to full-time because she loves it so much.

Moving my daughter to Banana Moon is one of the best things I have done. She has settled in well in the friendly and happy environment. The staff are all fantastic and the managing director is fantastic, also it's great to have staff who care about my opinion and ideas. The facility is great and the menu choice is great. I am soon due my second child and already feel relaxed about putting her to nursery here. My only suggestion is for the learning diary to be electronic. Five stars to Banana Moon Dyce.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback Katie.

I find this a fabulous nursery. My daughter has attended since she was 6 months and thoroughly enjoys it. There is a great range of activities for her which aids her development and provides a fun environment. The food is always of a high standard and offers a balanced diet.
The staff are really great and go above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure the kids get the care and attention they need.
I would highly recommend this nursery!

Thank you very much for your positive feedback.

My son started at Banana Moon Day Nursery Aberdeen Dyce in April this year and I couldn't be happier in the nursery and the care that is provided. Although he was quite upset at drop off to begin with, I am so happy that he now goes in with no tears. I have noticed a dramatic change in his development and am so happy to see him making lots of friends. The staff are very friendly and helpful and meet all his needs. I am happy to come and find out about his day and get actual feedback which is was one of the reasons he was removed from another nursery. The nursery is a fantastic facility with such a welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door I highly recommend to anyone.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback.

My daughter has settled in so well in such a short time. The staff are very caring and my girl has bonded well with them. She looks forward to going there each time and has a great time every day she's there. The manager is amazing and made us feel most welcome when my girl started. The environment at Banana Moon is very welcoming, clean and bright. The children have lots of toys to play with and they have an engaging garden for the kids to enjoy fresh air and free play. I feel reassured my child is in safe hands at Banana Moon. I would highly recommend this nursery and will continue to keep my little girl here until she starts school!

Thank you for your positive feedback.

I did a lot of research into childcare options and nurseries before I chose Banana Moon. Finding a nursery which meets all of the high standards and requirements a mummy wants for her child is challenging.
Banana Moon ticks all those boxes. It is well organised, exceptionally clean and full of fantastic stimulating toys and books. Staff are welcoming, friendly and passionate about their roles within the nursery.

I didn't anticipate the transition into childcare to be so difficult for my little boy but it was. However, the girls at Banana Moon have been outstanding at ensuring my little one is kept happy and entertained with a variety of age-appropriate activities. I know he is well cared for and his individual needs are being met while in the nursery's care. He hasn't been going to Banana Moon for very long but he is already developing new skills and relationships which is a truly fantastic thing for any parent to see.

Thank you, Banana Moon!

Thank you very much for your positive feedback.

My 1.5 year old daughter absolutely loves the nursery. Every morning she gets the same warm welcome and lots of smiles from the staff. They organize different activities every day, from a messy play to trips to the library. Staff is always professional and friendly, and you can see kids love being around them. The place itself is clean and tidy, with plenty of toys to keep the little ones entertained. Opening hours are perfect for parents who work full time, and the summary sheets issued at the end of each day are a nice touch - telling you exactly what kids ate, how many nappy changes they had, how long they slept etc.

Thank you for your lovely review, we really appreciate your feedback.

I absolutely love this nursery, my son had been in another nursery before and he was never this happy about going to nursery. The place is very clean and tidy. The girls that work there are amazing and super creative, they treat the kids like if they were their own but at the same time they teach them plenty. My son has learnt a lot since he started going to Banana Moon, he is getting better at sharing with other kids, has learnt numbers and colours in English (that is how I know it is the nursery and not me, since I only speak Spanish to him), also he has learnt about plants and role playing. His language skills in English have improved greatly (and he is only 2 years old).

I fully recommend this nursery, not only because of their excellent service but because the personnel that work there are very friendly and understanding. They listen to your opinions and always do what they can to help you and your kids.

Thank you very much for your amazing review.

The facility is absolutely 1st class, incredible attention to detail, design and layout. Large spacious room and wonderful play area with top of the line synthetic grass. I know our little lad is extremely happy there and is very well taken care of. Very safe with many security cameras and finger print locks.

Thank you very much for a great review.

The nursery is a breath of fresh air. Clearly setting a new standard in childcare in Aberdeen. I have a 2 year old son that simply loves going to Bananamoon. Couldn't be happier with the wonder staff and manager. Their open and willing approach to parents concerns and comments make for a caring and transparent service.
Large open rooms and playing areas with a wonderful food menu all prepared fresh onsite .

Thank you for your lovely feedback.

Banana Moon Aberdeen is a very welcoming nursery! In November 2015 we moved our son there from a nursery we did not feel confident with. Our feelings with Banana Moon straight from day one couldn't have been better! The staff are so friendly they make both parents and children feel welcome by taking time to talk and listen, we also feel confident that we could approach staff should there be any issues. My son has never been good at drop off but the girls are very good with him so he settles quickly. When we go to pick him up he is always having a great time, he even cried on the way home one day saying he didn't want to go! There is always a wide variety of activities going on and outdoor play is encouraged. Meals are prepared fresh and the food must be good as he seems to eat things there that he won't even try at home!

Overall we are so glad that we moved him to Banana Moon and I would he happy to recommend it to other parents.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review

My son started at Banana Moon after we removed him from another nursery that both he and us were unhappy with. We were very impressed, even from our very first visit - the facilities are fresh, welcoming, well equipped, safe and professional. The staff we met with were so friendly and extremely helpful and we knew instantly this was the nursery we wanted our son to attend. The transition was very smooth and our son settled in straight away with no issues. Our daughter has since started and also settled in straight away with no issues whatsoever.

The service provided is excellent - I cannot recommend it enough! The children are involved in a wide variety of activities and although plans are made, they will listen to the children and let the children decide what they want to do - even if it means changing the plans! The food is all made fresh on site and the daily diary I take home shows that both have eaten all their meals and snacks so it must be good!

We are delighted!

My child goes to nursery on a Friday and is so excited when she arrives. All the girls are all so welcoming when we arrive. She has taken to all the girls who have so much patience with her. All the other kids you can see with your own eyes are happy to be there. I have no complaints and no worries about leaving her there as she is in safe hands.

My son has recently started walking and loves to explore. We love the way Banana Moon Aberdeen always comes up with new ideas to make the baby room interesting. The staff are so friendly and caring.
My son loves the place so much that sometimes in the evening he refuses to come home with us. The menu is healthy with variety all the time (honestly my son eats better at the nursery than at home)
The vibe we get from the place is very homely and the staff make us feel like family. Thank you so much for opening such a great nursery in the local community of Dyce.

The variety of meals provided is fantastic and my son enjoys most meals.
The security system is a great way of seeing what my son is up to without seeing me first and he is always more than happy.
Overall - a fantastic nursery with brilliant staff!

I would highly recommend this nursery to friends and family. My son attends once a week and when it's time to go home, he wants to stay and play a little more! I'm extremely satisfied with the variety of healthy meals that are provided. The staff are very easy to talk to and provide all the support my son needs when I'm not around. I do believe that the nursery has helped my sons learning and social interactions with other adults and kids.

Our son has attended Banana Moon since it opened in October 2015 for one day per week. He found it hard to settle initially and the nursery staff were amazing and they did a gradual phasing in to get him settled. He still grumps being left, even now, 8 months on after attending but he has always fully settled within half an hour of being at the nursery. The food is all prepared on site and a varied menu is always provided. I feel the care of the children is of absolute priority to the nursery and staff and have full confidence in leaving my child in their care. My son's key worker is fantastic and she really seems to have formed a strong bond even though he is only in once a week. I feel the nursery is well managed and they have always responded promptly to any questions/queries I have had.

What a lovely review thank you Lyndsey! I am sure Banana Moon Aberdeen will be pleased to read how positive you are about the nursery and the team :)

My children are really enjoying the nursery. They settled in very quickly to the nursery and bonded well with the staff. They do a wide variety of activities - messy play, craft, role play - and lots of outdoor play. There is excellent security, the staff are very friendly and caring and encourage parents to be involved. I would highly recommend to other parents.

We love Banana Moon day nursery! My daughter has settled in well to the Baby Moons room, the nursery staff are fantastic. The children take part in a wide range of activities, arts and crafts. A great deal of effort must be put into planning for each day and it really shows. We enjoy receiving and reading our daily diary which details all meals, nappies, bottles, naps and activities for the day. My daughter seems to eat everything she is given, even things that she won't eat at home. All in all, we are so glad that we chose Banana Moon, we have seen such a difference in her progress in only a few months of her being there. I have met the nursery owner a few times whilst collecting/dropping off and it is so lovely to see that he takes such a keen interest in the running of the nursery on a day to day basis. I am very happy to leave my little girl there knowing that the owners, managers and staff are so passionate about Banana Moon.

My son has been at 2 nurseries prior to starting at Banana Moon last year. The girls are fantastic and he loves it: settled in extremely well and no issues going in at all!
I have great communication from the nursery staff on a daily basis, the facility is brilliant, he is a picky eater and they have introduced him to a wide variety of foods which are all fresh and made on the premises.
I would recommend them to other parents looking for childcare.
