    The staff at Banana Moon are all so welcoming! My son’s key worker and other staff in the under 2’s room have helped him settle in so quickly – he now happily goes in each day with no tears. They always report positively and realistically at the end of each day. There is a feeling that everyone there cares a great deal about each child.

    This is a great little nursery, the staff are excellent and its a very personal experience. It’s like dropping off our children to a family member. The children have come on so much since starting, from education to helping toilet train, to just general love and care, they have really helped support the development of our children. I can clearly see how hard the staff work to look after and help the little people grow. They encourage outdoor activities in any weather, and all of the children are provided with all in one suits so they are dry and comfortable.

    My daughter has attended Banana Moon for two years. She really enjoys it and loves going. I have always felt that my child is safe, cared for and progressing really well through learning. I believe she has gained better confidence and learnt things much quicker from the support and care she has been given by Banana Moon. The staff are always kind and welcoming.

    Both my children have attended Banana Moon Day Nursery Baddesley Ensor from 2015 and we a thrilled with the love and support provided in the care of our children.
    The staff are so dedicated and caring, the management is reliable and proactive. The nursery itself is small, but the space is used well. There are always creative stations set up for play, and the work in the garden over the last 12 months has been really good.
    I was pleased with how the nursery coped with the pandemic and how they dealt with the return to the nursery.
    The staff provided story session by Zoom, something they didn’t need to do, but it’s those little touches, going over and above what they need to that makes this nursery so special.

    My son started nursery at the beginning of the pandemic, 2 days before closure. The days he was there, he seemed to really settle in well and formed a great bond with his key person.
    The nursery handled the whole pandemic really well keeping us regularly updated with any updates they had. After 6 months off, my son returned and within days was walking (he was a roller before the closure). His communication has come on so much and he seems to really enjoy it there. I love the updates we receive throughout the day with photos of what he has been doing and what he has eaten (the food is great). All of the staff are lovely and I am so glad it was the nursery we picked! Thank you to all at Banana Moon.

    My daughter has only been going here for a few months, but I am already seeing great progress, the staff are so lovely and friendly. I always feel at ease when dropping her off, and the tears are starting to fade away as she becomes more settled. I love getting the updates through the app and seeing the fun they get up to, especially in these unusual times, it’s great for my daughter to be able to socialise with other children.

    My daughter attends Banana Moon in Baddesley and she loves it there. She has been going since the end of Maternity leave when she was 10 months and is now 2.5 years old. She has friends there and the staff work hard with her on her development and offering lots of activities to encourage her and keep her stimulated. They have lots of outdoor time and ‘messy’ play. The food is prepared on-site and is fresh which is a huge positive for me. The nursery manager is fantastic and the other staff are all very nice. I feel that my daughter is well looked after and safe. I hope to be able to send my younger child there also when I return back to work.

    My daughter has really blossomed since joining Banana Moon. The staff are so caring, lovely and friendly. They really create strong bonds with the children and then keep constant contact with parents/carers through the app. I would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a nursery. My daughter started at 18 months old so she’s experienced 2 of the groups so far.

    My daughter has attended Banana Moon Baddesley Ensor for over 12 months and has flourished within all areas of her development. She really enjoys the social aspect of nursery life and interacting with all of her ‘friends’ she talks about particular staff members and always has fond things to say each day when coming home. Lots of lovely activities are carried out with the children each day and we see this through the parent app which is a great tool and feature for working parents who can simply check onto the app during the day to see how their child is getting on with lovely photos to make you smile. Most of all she is having fun – whilst learning too!

    Since my son started in October I have noticed a huge change in the way he interacts with me and others. The nursery provides an excellent service in all aspects. I Would definitely recommend it. As a first-time mom I was worried about leaving him but the nursery is very understanding and keeps you up-to-date

    My daughter enjoys this nursery a lot. Always packed with activities. Love the daily diary, very detailed and allows to track child progress including what they eat.
    Good security measures and communication.

    My little girl started here in September 2021. I could not be happier that she is there. She is thriving and absolutely loves going in. All the staff are second to none. I feel and know that my daughter is cared for and safe. What more do you want. Thank you so so much to everyone for treating my little girl like your own.

    The Nursery has been excellent in supporting my child from the first day but especially, during the last 5 months. Everyone has gone out of their way to make sure that they don’t miss out on activities and provide additional support where needed. Cannot praise the staff group enough for being the ‘parent’ of my child while they are in their care.

    My son attends Banana Moon currently in the baby room. He attends twice a week and very much enjoys his time there. The team working at Banana moon are lovely and I know when I drop him off in the morning he will be looked after, kept happy and safe until I return. The nursery is small, but this allows all the children to get to know each other and all of the staff. A big plus point for this nursery is the app they use to keep us updated. I love getting my daily photos of the activities my son has been involved in. The other big plus point is the opening times of 7.30am to 6.30pm gives us the flexibility we need to ensure we can complete a full day at work without having to worry or rush back to collect him. Where others locally would charge extra for the last hour of the day. A big thank you to the staff for all they do for our son.

    Banana Moon has always gone above and beyond for my little boy. My son has special medical needs, and the nursery has been amazing to support him while in the nursery. The difference within a few months is amazing, and that’s all down to the girl’s hard work and love they have for all the children. The team at Banana Moon are like family in our eyes.

    A home from home! We’ve been using the nursery for nearly 4-years now and have had nothing but great experiences. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming, across all the rooms, and it’s clear they really care for all of the children. It’s been amazing to see our children learn and grow in their time there and bounce in and out happily each morning and afternoon. The range of activities and events the team do and get the children involved in is great and adds lovely variety to the things they do.
    Although a small site, the nursery really maximises how they use the space and get the most out of things, utilising everything at their disposal. This is something that stood out when looking at different nurseries for us, often others would have much larger spaces but didn’t talk about even half the things that Banana Moon did. And we see those things happening – great job!

    My daughter has been at the nursery for 6 months now and she is so happy to see the staff when we arrive in the morning. The staff always put on great activities for the children and are very caring about their individual needs. It is very reassuring when I am away knowing it is helping her development and growth.

    The staff at Banana Moon Day Nursery have been fantastic, our little girl is just going through her settling sessions to move from the baby room into over two’s and everybody has been great. The baby room team are talked about with such love when we get home and I am sure that it will be no different once we are fully into over two’s.

    Writing this review as my youngest child is leaving Banana Moon Day Nursery Baddesley Ensor this month ready to start school in September. It’s the end of an era for us as we’ve been using the nursery for nearly 6 years now as both of my boys went here. Banana Moon is a great nursery made extra special by the warm personalities of the girls who work there and particularly the manager who is lovely and works really hard to create the culture it has.
    They have a good balance between running it as a business whilst trying to be as helpful and flexible as possible around the demands of busy working parents. The boys have always been very well looked after there and we received a lot of additional support with my eldest’s behavioural development a while back. Communication is really good and the app is updated with lots of info and pics throughout the day. My youngest particularly loves the garden and going on the mini trips around the village to parks, farms and the library. We’re really sad to be leaving!

    My children came from another nursery to Banana Moon, and although they have not been here for very long, the staff have created bonds with my children, and they both enjoy attending. I cannot thank all the staff enough for making all of us feel welcome and helping my children to transition to this nursery from their old one, and getting them ready to attend school. We only wish the children could have attended for longer!
