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 5 for Banana Moon Day Nursery Davyhulme is calculated as follows: ( (35 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.794 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Banana Moon Day Nursery Davyhulme 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 10.2 positive Reviews (51 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10.2 Target = 0.294

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

The nursery setting and the staff are very welcoming. My daughter has so much fun here and is extremely happy. Meals are nutritious and my daughter loves the food (she has never refused the food here!). The team here always keeps parents well informed and engaged in what is going on and welcome visits anytime.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are very glad that you are all very happy here at Banana Moon Davyhulme.

My little girl has settled in really well at this nursery. The staff are so lovely and caring. Every day I get told positive things about my daughter's progress and you can see the staff are really excited to see her develop. My daughter has dietary requirements which the staff are all aware of, and she has adapted meals so that she doesn't miss out on what her friends are having. Would highly recommend to anybody looking for a friendly, family orientated nursery.

Thank you so much for this very kind and thoughtful review. I will be passing this onto our team. Thank you.

My daughter loves it here. The staff are welcoming and have helped us settle into the nursery really well. Communication is always brilliant and I know everything she has eaten, drank and participated in that day. It is a big nursery with a lovely outside space. I would definitely recommend this nursery to other parents.
