Paper Moon Day Nursery - Sutton in Ashfield

“This nursery was recommended to us by family friends (who commuted from 7 miles away!) and neighbours more locally - both of whom were extremely positive about their experiences. We visited other nurseries but from our first visit here we knew it was the right setting. Security is good but visitors are always made to feel welcome and my wife visited three times in total before our daughter started (with grandparents etc.) Our daughter left in September 2014 for school and my son who is 2 and a half remains here. They have both benefited hugely from their time at nursery and clearly enjoy it. My daughter loves going in to pick her brother up and staff continue to make a fuss of her. We have always felt well informed of what they do during the day and any potential issues (accidents, incidents, illness, behaviour, nap patterns etc.) The staff are fantastic, genuinely caring and I have seen some really lovely interactions between them and the children. Nursery events are very well organised and clearly a lot of effort went in to the nativity, graduation and open days we attended over the last year or so. My two have always enjoyed the food and regularly have seconds and snacks and drinks are offered regularly. Activities are structured and varied and the toys, outdoor equipment etc. are well maintained and looked after. All in all the nursery is very well managed and there is clear staff structure with key workers for children etc. They have parent’s evenings for children but staff and management are willing to discuss progress at any time. I would not hesitate to recommend it to any one and will be sad when my son moves on to school in a couple of years’ time.”


“Very happy with the progress that Archey is making and how he is now sitting up much better and getting faster at moving around shows the hard work you guys are putting in.  Very happy with updates of daily meals, activities and if there are any concerns to be told.  Dad is always made to feel welcome and comfortable when collecting Archey.  Thank You”


“I cannot praise the girls in the baby room enough.  On Oj’s arrival 4 weeks ago at Paper Moon he was 4 week post brain surgery with no social or interactive skills.  The girls have interacted and stimulated him that is now achieving all age expectations.  The varied diet he totally enjoys and it is evident the bond and affection he has for the staff of the baby room”

“We love Paper Moon. The girls at Paper Moon are always so lovely and friendly.  They always take the time out at pickups and drop offs to make sure you and your child feel special.  My daughter loves spending time with them and I feel so confident that she has lots of fun and learns so much while at nursery.  I couldn’t recommend Paper Moon highly enough!  It’s so warm and comfortable, like a home away from home”  

“My daughter has attended this nursery for 2 years. She has additional needs and the care she has received is exceptional. The staff have not only supported our little girl but the whole family. I do not think that she would have made the progress she has without the hard work of this nursery. My daughter was happy and settled from the moment she walked through the door (whereas at her previous nursery she was always upset and would not like to be left) thanks to the homely and loving atmosphere. As for the food? - my daughter rarely passes on seconds!”


“My daughter has been attending Paper Moon for nearly a year and thoroughly enjoys it.  The staff and facilities are very welcoming, they really try to create a cosy and friendly environment.  I love that there is a variety of activities and food menus, but most of all I love that the staff have taken time to know my daughter and form a special bond with her.  The staff ensure I don’t miss out on special moments by always keeping me updated and work closely with me on development milestones.  Paper Moon made going back to work so much easier, I would highly recommend them”.

“I would just like to say a special thank you to you both…..  You’ve made me leaving James so much more easier knowing that your there ready to take care of him when he’s upset, which is very hard some days as a mum.  I honestly can’t thank you enough…. James adores you both and always talks about you at home.  No job is easy but the extra effort you put in really makes it such a lovely place.  Thank you”


“Paper Moon day nursery is fantastic! The staff are very friendly. You can tell they all love working at the nursery and love working with all the children/babies. The activities they do at the nursery for all ages are fantastic, fun and educational. My little girl has had no problems at the nursery and really enjoys herself. The nursery staff contact you if they ever need to know anything about your child or if they have bumped their head etc, which I found very important and reassuring. This nursery is an all-round good nursery.”



Paper Moon Day Nursery – Compton Acres, West Bridgford, Nottingham

“Great staff, hardworking and dedicated and obviously enjoy their jobs.  We are very happy knowing our child is well cared for and developing at an age appropriate level”


“Beautiful nursery! The children are always content & happy to be there. My daughter has really developed mentally & emotionally since starting the nursery almost 2 years ago. I am confident to leave my daughter there as she has great relationships with both the staff & the children. The staff at this nursery are very professional, caring & always willing to work alongside with me to take the steps towards achieving my daughter's next goal. Many thanks & acknowledgment to my daughter's Key Worker & Nursery Manager.”


“All the staff at Papermoon are full of energy and fun. Both my children love attending the nursery and often don't want to leave to come home in the evenings! The staff are friendly, approachable and extremely hard-working. They are a strong team who are highly motivated when providing the children with a wide range of activities using the EYFS. They are all very knowledgeable in early years. I would recommend this nursery to anyone who is looking for a safe, fun environment to leave their children. Tracey, the cook, provides tasty, healthy meals and both my children love her cooking - they eat a much wider variety of food at nursery than they do at home.”



Paper Moon Day Nursery - Gamston

"Paper Moon and its staff have been such an invaluable source of continuity and positivity in our lives over the 8 years that our children have attended.  As a family we’ve had a lot of sadness and causes of stress to cope with during those years but the nurturing environment at Paper Moon has enabled all the children to thrive.   Your personal support over the last couple of months has meant so much to us and has helped our daughter to feel valued and not forgotten, which have no doubt helped her recovery.  We can’t thank you enough." Parent statement


“My little boy attends nursery here and has done since he was 8 months old (he's now 4). He absolutely loves it! I never have a problem getting him to attend and he enjoys getting to see his friends and all the ladies. The staff throughout the nursery are extremely welcoming and do anything they can to help you. They always tell me how my son has been and it's just fantastic knowing I can go to work happily knowing my son is being well looked after and having a fun day! I would recommend this nursery to everybody!”


“My daughter (now nearly 8) attended Paper Moon Day nursery from the age of 10 months, up until she went to school on a combination of 3 and 4 day weeks during her duration there. My son now attends, he's nearly 3. Both children thoroughly love nursery. My daughter looks back now lovingly at her days at nursery, and despite 2 of her best friends back then going to 2 different schools, she is still in touch with them, and still refers to them as her best friends! My son loves it too. It is refreshing to see that the staff must thoroughly enjoy working there too. Many staff have been there since my daughter attended nearly 7 years ago! Everyone has a smile on their face, everyone is approachable. You can find out as much or as little as you want. They really work with you - if you want to work on colours / potty training / whatever, it is fully supported in a really relaxed, bright and happy environment. There is plenty of varied activities in store every day. It’s amazing to see how calm a room can be despite having a room of toddlers / babies. All the children are happy, and if they need a cuddle - they get a cuddle! There is plenty of communication home, both at the end of the day and in the form of newsletters. They genuinely want to find out about your child and their likes and dislikes. I submitted feedback about my child's favourite TV character. I had no idea that they had never heard of it, but rather than dismiss it, when I went to collect him, they'd researched it, and printed out pictures to talk with my son about it! I thoroughly recommend it, for any parent looking for a nursery where their child is cared for in a happy and safe environment.”


Paper Moon Day Nursery – Faraday Road, Lenton

“Paper Moon Day Nursery is outstanding. From the level of care my son receives to the input we have as parents is outstanding. His key worker ensures we never miss a moment, she even managed to record him walking for the first time- we really appreciate you working to ensure we never miss out on those precious moments. The manager is always available and takes an active interest in all the children. Every time we have needed to speak to her she's dealt with our query quickly and efficiently. Keep up the amazing work.”


“Lovely nursery with friendly staff. Lots of creative activities for my little girl to enjoy. I love the fact that this nursery is a compact size so I was ensured that my girl would be in the staffs' eyesight at all time.”



Paper Moon Day Nursery – Forest Town

“I have to say the staff are always friendly and seem to like working there is a low turnover. Which I think is really good for the children as they get used to people. She's always exited to go and the crafts and games she loves, especially sign of the week. The menus is varied and that also seems to go down well with my daughter. The manager is always available to chat and is always happy to help. Security is high with state of the art finger print technology and wellbeing of the children is always well looked after. Also the xmas play was amazing the hard work the staff and the kids put in was 200% Would highly recommend! Will be sad when she starts school in September, and I know she will miss being there too”


“My daughter has attended this nursery for almost 3 years, and in all that time we have never had a problem. My daughter loves going and gets upset at weekends because nursery is closed and she can't go !!!! The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful and make you feel very welcome and safe to leave your child. Security is fantastic with a fingerprint scanner to let you in and out.”


“Paper Moon is a brilliant nursery, the staff are very friendly and approachable! My daughter has progressed a lot since starting here nearly a year ago. She absolutely loves going to nursery every day, she has built some brilliant relationships with the staff and other children as well.”
