Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Saturday 22 February 2014 by Louise taylor (Parent of 13 month old)

My daughter has been attending this nursery since she was 10 months old. I couldn't be happier with the care she receives there. Her development has improved tremendously. The staff are very caring, friendly and trustworthy. Knowing my daughter is happy at this nursery makes it easier for me to leave her in the care of the fantastic staff there. The facilities are fantastic!

Both my children attend this nursery and I have to say they are very good. Any problems or questions I may have they answer/sort out straight away. My boys are very settled at the nursery and this is down to the staff making them feel this way. I would recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a safe and trustworthy place to looking after your children.

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Wednesday 29 January 2014 by Davinia Green (Mother)

I am sure like all parents, I was anxious when my son was to start nursery, thankfully this did not last long as from the first settling in session in the baby room, I felt confident that my son would be well looked after and happy and a year on and now in the next age group room, he is thriving. The daily reports mean so much and so does his personal folder that they put together for you. The staff are always smiling and attentive. The Management are helpful and thorough. My son adores his Key Person, Erica and also Lucie too (his baby room key person) as well as all staff. They know my son so well and meet his personal needs and exceed my expectations, may it be from activities, care, learning, meal times (nutrition is excellent), cuddles to putting on the music player! Thank you all :-)

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Wednesday 29 January 2014 by Laura (Parent)

I am delighted with the love, care and attention that my 16 month old son receives at this nursery. For the past 8 months since we joined, the nursery staff have been warm and friendly and really seem to know each child's individual needs. I feel happy and confident going to work when I know he's in such good hands, and when I pop in to collect him, he's always happy, busy and well looked after.

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Tuesday 1 October 2013 by kristy waterworth (mother)

I absolutely adore the nursery my daughter's key person is amazing and makes my daughter's time there so pleasant and she even calls for her at home. It's so good to know that it's not only a safe and caring environment but one my daughter wants to go to as her smile beams when we walk through the door. They have an extremely good variety of different and exciting toys and activities for them to play with. Every time I bring my daughter in I feel so happy in the knowledge that she is happy there.

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Thursday 22 August 2013 by Danielle Moss (Mum)

My little boy has been at the nursery since he was 6 months and from day 1 has received the best care I could ask for. The staff are amazing and very friendly and always keep me updated with everything and explain things to me if I have questions. He has the nicest key person looking after him, as well as all the other girls in his room. They have and continue to support me with things such as potty training and other things. Becci and Emma and very helpfully and also try to accomodate me on extra sessions and anything else. The nursery is clean and tidy. Knowing my little boy is happy at the nursery makes me being a working mum so much easier.

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Friday 26 July 2013 by Desiree Sanchez (Mother)

Great nursery, great staff! My little one has developed so much since he started in the nursery! Before he joined he was such a fussy eater: would not drink milk and refused solid food. The facilities are new since they just had a rebuild. His teacher Erica is very very sweet and I'm happy in general with all the members of staff. We have a communication book where they write what he does every day so I do not miss anything.Really happy.

My daughter has attended this nursery from the baby room all the way through to pre school, today sadly was her last day as shes now moving on to school, we have nothing but happy memories there, Alyssa loved every minute and I was able to go to work knowing she was happy and receiving high quality childcare. I have nothing but praise for the lovely staff and welcoming feel you receive when entering the nursery.

I would highly recommend this nursery, my 2 year old settled very quickly and loves going to play with her new friends. This is greatly down to the fun, enthusiastic, and caring staff at the nursery:-) having seen other nurseries, I was very impressed with the friendly and welcoming atmosphere throughout the whole nursery, which was very settling for my daughter and for me as a dad!

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Friday 19 July 2013 by Kate Gammell (Parent)

Going back to work is stressful enough let alone worrying about how your child is at nursery, I was so lucky my son settled in so well and I never had to leave him worried he was unhappy. The staff are so friendly and so good at handing over telling you what your little one has been up to, slept, eaten etc.... I feel my sons development has come on so well due to the fact he is in such a good nursery. I can't thank them all enough.

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Thursday 18 July 2013 by Caroline (Parent)

Could not send my daughter to a better nursery. The staff are fantastic. No challenge is too big or too small for the staff, they have been very supportive with my daughters potty training too. You only need to visit to see how happy the children are to know it's the place you would want to send your child. The food provided is a good healthy variety and my daughter never goes hungry! And since the refurbishment earlier in the year the garden is enjoyable in all weathers.

Review of The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey on Tuesday 21 May 2013 by Lisa Welling (Mother)

My two daughters were both cared for by from babies until preschool and I can't rate the nursery enough, particularly since my third child now goes to a different nursery as we moved house and I can really tell the differences - if it wasn't too far to travel he would be there too. The genuine care for the children by all the staff and particularly the low churn of staff made for an environment whereby my daughters still to this day say how much they loved it and quote things like "staffname is the best". It's tough for any mum to balance work and caring for children but knowing they are in a place where they are not only safe, learning and I get feedback on what they doing it's more important to me knowing they enjoy it and want to go each day. Cannot rate co-operative childcare enough and would recommend to anyone looking for daycare for their children. Thank you
