I took my seven year old son to this nursery 6 years ago, he stayed with them for 4 years. It can be very scary for a first time mum leaving their child to strangers but Co-operative has no strangers it has a professional management team, qualified, friendly and more caring team.
In May 2015 I then took my second child who has really developed well, within a very safe and secure environment. I would like to say that the team there are outstanding and led very well.

This is a very good pre-school, one of very few that caters for working mums that do a full day which is very helpful. The only down side is the cost as I probably earn the same amount a day at work as what I pay the school a day.

My Son has been going to this Nursery since Jan 2015, and he loves it. He loves going to Tinymites on a Friday, and he eats more than he does at home! The variation of food is brilliant, he is always trying new things. The staff are amazing. Our son is very well cared for and is always happy when we go and collect him. I can't thank you enough.

Excellent staffing, very caring to kids. Kids feel like their home under such a caring roof. Activities and learning for the kids are more than excellent. The staff are very polite and hard working. I will definitely recommend this nursery to all, as leaving your child with someone is very hard but with Co-op Childcare, South Oxhey is a perfect place for peace of mind.

My son has been going to this nursery for 7 months now, he seemed to settle in really well, he eats well and sleeps longer in the nursery for naps than he does at home!

Its a lovely friendly nursery, all the staff there are excellent, especially a young lady called Emma, she is so efficient, informative and amazing with my son and all the children she looks after,

She is without a doubt an asset to the Co-Op Nursery.

Will 100% send my next child there

They go the extra mile!

My little one started here in September 2014. He has additional needs. So far, I am very please with the care that he is receiving. The staff are extremely caring, helpful, understanding and patient. They have so far been very accommodating and supportive. My little one knows everyone by name and even looks forward to going to school. I think that overall, from what I have experienced so far - that is a very good setting and I would certainly recommend it to any mother who wants the best care for their child. So far, very good.

Regardless of what our children learn in daycare, every parents wants their child to be happy. My son has very strong bonds with particular staff members which is a great comfort for me as a parent. Emotional bonds are important because they help children thrive and become resilient. Staff at Co-op South Oxhey are very aware of the importance of pse development.

All of our children have loved coming to the nursery (from 2005 to present) and have formed trusting relationships with their carers.
Many of the staff have been at the nursery for a long time and we have never had any concerns with the level of care given, both of these things, I think, speak for themselves.
Its a great environment for pre-school childcare.

My son has been in the care of Co-op since he was 19 months old (now 3 years). He is more confident and has more self a-steam. He interacts with other better, which was an issue before due to his shyness. He has his favourite carers and talks about them at home. He is very nurturing and cuddly, which he likes about one particular carer within this nursery. The outside area is my sons favourite, where he uses variety of toys and he talks about the nursery's outside area quite often.
Overall, I'd recommend this nursery.

Reuben has been at the nursery for 2 months now and every morning I leave him there I feel confident that he will be well looked after and stimulated throughout the day. He responds to his nursery practitioners with big smiles. My mind is at ease that he is being cared for in a nurturing and safe environment. Communication between staff, management and parents are excellent with someone always available in the office and a clear handover at the end of the day. I would recommend this nursery without any hesitation.

My daughter is very happy at the nursery and has settled in well with the help of all the staff in the Butterfly Room. My little princess is well looked after, at the end of each session the staff give whoever collects her a detailed hand over about her day and what she has been up to. The staff are very attentive, kind and caring. The nursery provides all her nappies, wipes, sudo cream, sun cream and a variety of nutritional meals. I highly recommend this nursery.

Submit a Review for The Co-operative Childcare Watford South Oxhey


  • This is not a formal complaint procedure or to be used for allegations of negligence, abuse or criminal activity.

  • Reviews cannot be submitted anonymously through daynurseries.co.uk, we require the name and telephone/email of the reviewer and the option to share these with the care provider, so that we can properly authenticate reviews.

  • If you wish to make a complaint or have a serious allegation of negligence, abuse or criminal activity, you should contact the care provider, the relevant regulatory authority or the police.

  • We only accept/publish Reviews that are submitted by a parent / individual responsible for a child and comply with our Content Standards (eg are relevant, informative, civil).

  • Before publication, we check that all reviews comply with our Review Policy and we show all reviews to care providers so that they may submit a response to be published with the review. Also, as a last resort the care provider may opt for the comment and ratings of a review not to be displayed if they believe the comments/ratings to be unfair (the ratings of the Review will still count towards the overall Review Score).

  • We cannot guarantee how quickly Reviews will be posted on our site. We try to process the Reviews as quickly as we can, but on occasions it can take up to 30 days for them to be Published or deemed non compliant with our Review Policy.

  • We have zero tolerance for fraudulent reviews, which includes but is not limited to, an owner or agent of a nursery offering incentives to reviewers to complete or remove reviews, impersonating a reviewer, selectively soliciting reviews, copying in-house comment cards, or attempting to damage a competitor by submitting a negative review. If we discover a fraudulent review, we will remove that review and we may remove all reviews for that nursery and any nurseries in the same group.
