The settling in sessions really helped my son feel comfortable and happy with his key person. My oldest son also attended the nursery so we knew everyone already. Very friendly and helpful staff. I always feel like my son is safe and being looked after very well.

My daughter is very happy at this nursery and has been since she started attending in June last year. All of the staff are lovely and the facilities available for the children are excellent. We are so happy with the service provided here that following a recent change in my husband's job, we had no reservations in immediately enquiringly into increasing our child's days spent at the nursery. We were very fortunate that these changes were able to be implemented immediately.

The Co-operative Childcare Oxford (Blackbird Leys) is an excellent nursery to leave your child. Staff are always available, be it dropping off or picking up a child. They work hard in bringing joy in a child's life.
As a parent, I am happy that my child goes to this nursery as he looks forward daily even on weekends that he wants to be at nursery because of the joy he experiences when he is there.

I've never had any problems with any of the staff here and I find the staff and management to be very friendly! The staff are very good and explain everything and are friendly too. I would say that the garden equipment needs updating a little but other than that there are no complaints

My daughter has been attending the nursery since she was 10 months old. She has loved every day in the nursery and is very keen to go there every day.
The care is excellent ,her key worker is outstanding and has a great relationship with my daughter. It is very difficult for parents to place their children in full time care whilst at work , however I would highly recommend this nursery to everyone.

I couldn't be happier with the care that my son gets at nursery. He has been coming here since he was around 11 months and he has developed so much. He can count to 20 and has started saying his abc's. He is so confident and happy and you can really see him becoming such an outgoing little boy.

The staff are always welcoming on arrival and do everything to help him settle in, this is his most challenging part of the day and you can clearly see the support for him. When I pick him up, he always has a smile on his face and I always have an update on what he has done and achieved that day, including what he has eaten - he does so well and eats better at nursery than he does at home.

Overall, my son is very happy and I couldn't recommend the nursery more. They are friendly, helpful, experienced and above all, make my son feel at home. :)

I would highly recommend this nursery. We have been extremely happy with all the staff who have looked after our daughter. They are very professional, friendly and got to know my child well. They notice the smallest of things, eg when she's unwell or happy???? . They always make time to tell me how my daughters day has been!

I first approached the nursery in Oct 14, week before my baby was due/born 97.11.14).
The Blackbird Leys team were very friendly and professional. I returned in Apr 15 as I needed a nursery space at very short notice! they were able to offer me a suitable alternative to the slots I required and since then to current date have always tried to accommodate my nursery requirements in what was a time of upheaval and stress.
