Reviewer Connection to The Co-operative Childcare Bristol (Temple Meads) Nursery

  • Mother of Child

The staff are very approachable, friendly and caring and seem to work really well together as a wider team. The staff engage really well with the children and form good relationships. Both our children have always enjoyed the food and mealtimes where they can serve themselves. The outside space is limited but made the best of and resources inside are plentiful. In preschool, I did hope there would be more structured learning activities but they are clear about children choice too. They do lots of messy play which the children enjoy. They were good with recognising development needs and supporting this. Fantastic at supporting with inhalers/medication etc. The access times are good without additional wrap around charges. There can be problems with the billing but they have recently launched a new payment system which is expected to simplify things. Ultimately we feel our children are in a happy, safe, stimulating and nurturing environment.

My child started in the nursery (cats1) and is now in the attached pre-school. I have always found the staff to be very friendly and informative. Nothing I have asked for has ever been too much trouble. All staff are happy to help. Management always reply to any requests immediately and seem honest and open. My child has always been happy here and therefore so am I.

My little girl has been attending this Nursery since January 2015. My main reason for choosing this nursery is location, being near to temple meads on my route to work.
She has moved up rooms twice since being there. Each time she settles really quickly and well. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, my little girl willingly walks into her room and goes to staff when I drop her in, she is happy and has come on so much since being there.

Convenient location. Very friendly reliable staff. Confident leaving my child in their care, knowing he is learning, eating nutritional food, being cared for if upset and generally enjoying himself at the nursery. My son always goes to nursery smiling and comes home smiling too, which to me says a lot.

My daughter has attended The Co-operative Childcare in Bristol since October 2015. We could not be happier for her to be there. All the staff - from nursery managers, room leaders and childcare assistants to the ancillary staff - are welcoming, warm and positive. They clearly care about the children and I have never once worried about my daughter's needs being met. She is now in her third room at the nursery having progressed through the age groups and is thriving due to the interactive play and supportive learning environment. The facilities are excellent - spacious, inspiring and clean. We have regular progress updates and I feel connected to the staff if I ever need to discuss an issue with them. We also appreciate the extended hours which is invaluable in combining busy work and home lives. I rate the nursery extremely highly and have no hesitation in recommending it to other parents.

My daughter recently joined the nursery. She was only ten months old and very clingy so I naturally had concerns in leaving her. However the staff were extremely friendly and approachable and made the transition much easier than expected. My daughter quickly settled in and now really enjoys her time there and I am reassured she is in excellent hands.
