Excellence in Children’s Day Care

The emphasis at Banana Moon is to see everything from a parent’s point of view. We appreciate we are being entrusted with the care of your most precious possessions, therefore we have created a caring, loving and secure environment for children from 0 to 5 years of age.

Welcome to Banana Moon Day Nursery Gateshead

We are a family run nursery with a child centred focus. Everything we do is based around the needs of our children and our families. We aim to provide a safe and stimulating environment for children where they can grow to be confident individuals.

We have a wonderful team of well qualified and committed and all our staff are first aid trained.

We have a large nursery including a separate pre school building with free flow in to the garden, a sensory room, separate sleep room for our babies and a large garden area including a nature garden.
 
Our nursery cook provides our children with homemade, healthy, nutritious meals throughout the day, whilst the kitchen celebrates a 5 star food hygiene rating from the environmental health department.

My son has been going here since he was 6 months old and is now 2 and he absolutely loves it and the staff there. The staff are fantastic and amazing with him, he runs in every day with a huge smile on his face. They go over and above in looking after him and he has learnt so much. There is a real family/personal feel about this nursery and it's a lot less corporate than some others we viewed. I couldn't recommend this place enough and if I have a second baby we will be sending them here.

Our son loves coming to nursery. He's almost 4 and has attended since he was 18 months old. The staff have been nothing short of fantastic, so warm and caring. They have supported us with really big milestones like potty training and they have been outstanding in all other aspects of his development. The reports provided at the end of each term are really thorough and guide us to help shape his learning and development at home too. The updates on the app are great to keep up with what he's had to eat and what activities he's been doing during the day. We have been really impressed with the risk assessments and controls put in place during COVID-19. The nursery has shared these openly with parents to reassure us that infection prevention and control measures are firmly in place. They shared lots of materials during the National lockdown to help to keep us busy and support learning at home too. This is an outstanding nursery, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Parent
Absolutely fantastic. The girls who look after our baby go above and beyond, nothing is ever too much, and all of the staff are always happy to help. An extremely warm welcome every time you visit and an excellent reassuring approach to our baby's return post lockdown. Health and hygiene are top-notch, love and care are given effortlessly, and this really is an exciting nurturing trusted settled safe fun, home from home. Highly recommend this nursery to all and thank you to the lovely team for taking such good care of our precious baby girl.
