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 Mirfield

Banana Moon Day Nursery in Mirfield and Norristhorpe (formerly known as Pied Piper) is quite different to the other nurseries in the area. The nursery at Mirfield operates from a spacious building where we have four separate rooms to cater for the different age groups. We know the importance of outdoor play for children, which is why we have two outdoor areas in Mirfield. The nursery provides a safe and caring environment for children aged three months to five years and are open from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm for 51 weeks of the year, offering a range of sessions to suit our families’ needs. We provide breakfast, snacks and two nutritious hot meals every day. We even have CCTV in all our rooms and operate a biometric fingerprint entry system, ensuring the safety of all children in our care. 

Our Out of School Club operates from Mirfield and Norristhorpe during term time.
My daughter has found it difficult to settle into nursery but the staff at Banana Moon have been fantastic and have gone that extra mile to accommodate her needs and have made sure she has had a smooth transition into nursery life.
She now loves nursery life, I feel comfortable leaving her knowing she is happy and will enjoy herself for the day. The staff are caring, helpful and always smiling. The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean. They have even managed to get my daughter comfortable enough to have her afternoon naps!

A fantastic nursery. They have excellent facilities, good daily activities and a great outdoor area. Really friendly and helpful staff. It is reassuring knowing my son is being cared for in a happy and safe environment. He loves going to nursery and is learning new things all the time. Would definitely recommend Banana Moon Nursery to everyone.

My son had a really hard time settling in. And I had a really hard time too. The staff have been so accommodating and patient with us, I can't thank them enough. My son is vegan and they have offered to accommodate this and cook him separate meals. They are open-minded and have taken my views on board in regards to the food products they are buying, like which plant milk to buy in order to avoid sugar/artificial sweeteners, chemicals, etc. I am amazed at their dedication to look after kids to the point that I wish I will get to a point in my own career to be this dedicated and happy with what I do.

This nursery is great in so many ways. The staff all seem so interested in the children, highly professional and motivated by their jobs. The environment is excellent with lots of fun and interesting activities. My son is so happy. I drop him off and he just crawls straight off to play without a backwards glance. When we pick him up, he's also not desperate to run to us, he's too busy with what he's doing! I also notice the staff being very kind to the children who need more time to settle in. I feel this nursery is a great place for my son to have fun and develop new skills.
