Reviews

9.9 Banana Moon Day Nursery Ashmore has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.891)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Banana Moon Day Nursery Ashmore 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Banana Moon Day Nursery Ashmore in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 13 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 4.935 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Ashmore is calculated as follows: ( (145 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.935

  • 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 4.956 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Ashmore is based on 13 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.956

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

The staff at Banana Moon Nursery developed a close bond with us from the onset. It was very daunting for us to send our first child to a nursery but Banana Moon established a family partnership with us and this made all the difference. We were informed and involved with our daughter's learning journey from the very start and kept updated at all times. It was evident that our daughter developed in many ways both socially and academically. This was from our own observations. During parents evening this again was reiterated in the evidence of our daughter's Learning Journey. Records were both daily and annotated by the members of staff so that we could see and understand what learning was taking place. Banana Moon Nursery will not be forgotten. Both by my wife and I but more importantly my daughter. Her first steps to begin her learning journey.
Foundations were put in place for my daughter to succeed. Thank You Always.

Very friendly, approachable staff. Plenty of activities for the children. Very clean and welcoming. Also, like the newsletter to keep us up to date. The daily report of what child has done and eaten is fantastic.

I am so pleased with the amazing care my daughter receives at Banana Moon. Since joining last year she has changed so much. She was a quiet, shy little girl and she had been slow to talk. Now she is a super confident and very chatty little girl who loves nursery very much. All the staff have been fantastic. I love that they all know who she is despite the fact she only attends for two sessions a week. I always feel I am leaving her with people who really know her and understand her. The nursery itself has great facilities and well planned activities. I would highly recommend Banana Moon Ashmore to other parents.

I moved my two boys to Banana Moon at the beginning of 2017 and they enjoy their nursery very much. Both boys happily run off to play each morning. The staff are friendly and caring and I always receive an immediate phone call if there is an issue. I love the way that time is taken to discuss what the boys have done that day and nobody minds that it takes me ages to gather their things together and leave for home! My eldest son is now in the preschool and I have noticed how fast he is developing in preparation for school next September. He now enjoys practising his letter sounds and numbers. My youngest son is in the baby moons and due to his time there, loves exploring everything inside and out. With the meals being cooked on site, it is great to know the boys receive a variety of fresh healthy meals. We feel very much part of the Banana Moon family and some suggestions I have made have been used and we have also attended events, including Easter Bonnet Parade and Valentines Day.

I highly recommend Banana Moon Ashmore Park. My daughter has attended for a few months now and has progressed hugely in just that short time forming bonds with staff and becoming confident and comfortable in the nursery environment.

Staff are helpful and approachable and the facilities are lovely.

The whole team at Banana Moon make me feel immensely reassured that my child is in safe hands.
My child looks forward to going every week and activities are always fun, educational and varied.
Parents evenings allow us to track progress and development.
I receive daily feedback on my child's day, including food, nappy changes/toilet breaks and a full list of activities undertaken.
This makes going back to work a lot less stressful for a mummy after having a full 9 months of being with your child.
The food is always healthy and balanced.
Since being at nursery my usual fussy eater is more inclined to try more varied foods at home.
Shout out to one of the staff members in particular, who takes a genuine interest in the well being of my daughter, and for also helping encourage good behaviour and interaction with other children.
I will definitely be sending my son there when the time comes to return to work.
Thank you, Banana Moon, for your amazing management and energy (even at 6:30 pm on a Friday afternoon).

My daughter absolutely loves attending Banana Moon, in the morning she gets so excited when I tell her it's nursery day. The staff are excellent being attentive and nurturing. The management is fantastic and very accommodating. We have been really impressed by their focus on learning and development. The parents evenings are great ways of keeping us informed of our child's development and the fun activities they participate in. My husband and I were so nervous about leaving our daughter at nursery but we needn't have worried we feel safe and reassured when she is there knowing that she is cared for and having lots of fun!

Banana Moon on Ashmore Park has been fantastic. We were some of the first to come along to this new nursery and watched the builders prepare it and work so hard. The dedication of the management team is excellent and you feel confident that their work is very important to them.
Expectations for behaviour and the child's experience are very high.
My children love to go to nursery and see the other children almost as family, as well as friends.
We have been a little overwhelmed by the feedback given, both daily and termly. This was a big contrast to the nursery they were in previously.
I would highly recommend this nursery. They are friendly, kind and also very accommodating.

The nursery is brilliant, no faults at all. It is very clean and modern as everything is new at the nursery. The staff are really friendly and very informative about my daughter's day at nursery.
My daughter is a huge fan of the food here. It always smells great when I pick her up.
Although the outside space isn't massive, they've certainly made the most of the space they have.
