  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5.

    The Average Rating of 4.571 for The Co-operative Childcare Oxford (John Radcliffe) Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (96 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.571

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 4.677 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare Oxford (John Radcliffe) Nursery is based on 13 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.677

My child has been at this nursery for about 3 1/2 years and never had a problem with it.

The deputy now is very good and any troubles she will sort them as soon as possible. The manager is very good, polite and helpful.

All the staff are happy and cheerful. My child loves it here and can't wait to go. She's told me she 'never ever wants to leave'. Shows exactly how I feel.

Friendly staff, clean environment, the new update to the decor has made it look fresh and welcoming. My little one enjoys his day. Only thing I worry about is safeguarding. Nobody has once been asked for a password to pick my little one up even though it's in place. This may just be because they recognise us all.

My daughter has been at this nursery for a year now and I have never had any problems with them, as regards to the staff and the way my daughter is looked after. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. It has been a difficult year for them with management change etc but the lady in charge now is lovely, very organised and extremely helpful.

I was apprehensive about putting both of my children in childcare but actually found it beneficial to the development and social interaction of my children. The Cooperative at the John Radcliffe in Oxford, despite it facing retention and recruitment issues (due to this being the most expensive place to live in the UK and the low value that is placed on the vital work of childcare, leading to the comparatively low income that these nursery nurses earn) was a lovely place for my children. They were genuinely cared for and I am sad that they had to leave as we were moving away.

My son has been at The Co-operative Childcare Oxford (John Radcliffe) Nursery since 2014. It has always been a positive place that we have both been happy with. Last year, after a management change there was an uncertain time, with a high turnover of staff. Now under new management and a big refurbishment, it seems in a very good place. The staff and children seem happy and settled. The environment has improved and a good vibe flows through the nursery. There seems to be a good focus in numeracy and literacy, as well as interests in culture and festivities. Role on the spring, so the newly revamped outdoor space can be fully explored. My son is happy and I am a happy Mummy....

My children have both been very happy at the nursery. The opening hours are very good (the most flexible I know of locally). The staff are all very friendly and seem to genuinely love the children. Staff retention seems better than at other nurseries and my children enjoy the stability of this. My children adore their key workers and it is for this reason that I am frustrated that staff seem to just disappear rather than letting the families know that they are leaving.

I chose the nursery based on how friendly and warm the staff were towards my daughter and she has loved being there. The nursery is well managed, the staff are really engaged with the children and I would highly recommend to any potential parents.

My son has been attending this nursery since 2014. Although the nursery has gone through management/staffing changes, it has always remained a well-structured environment for my son. I believe that the nursery is now at the best level of care, support and encouragement.
The staff are extremely friendly, polite and professional, and very mixed with their skills - which I believe to be an added bonus to the children, especially when they are making friends from so many different background and languages. My son is now able to say basic phrases in Spanish and this is thanks to the staff, also the nursery has introduced literacy and numeracy lessons to the pre-schoolers (my son's age group) and also getting homework (which I greatly encourage). He is loving doing maths and English and excelling and become more confident.
I would happily recommend this establishment to anyone.

I have been using the nursery for 3 years now and I never had problems. Both my children like to go there and I feel it's a safe place for them.
I really like the fact that it is a multicultural environment.
