My daughter has been attending this setting since she was 10 months old and I have always been more than happy and content with the care and learning experiences she has received.
Throughout her time here she has grown into a confident independent child who enjoys attending the setting to spend time with both her peers and staff members overall I feel this is a happy, safe environment and would highly recommend it to others.

I would highly recommended the Co-op Nursery at Cainscross. The facilities are always very clean, the environment is very bright and inviting. The staff do an amazing job ensuring the little ones are very well looked after and are learning to the requested standard. My daughters care at nursery has been exceptional. She gets very excited when I tell her it's a nursery day and runs into the building. I couldn't have chosen a more perfect setting for my child to learn and grow in. Very happy.

We are really happy with the care and learning at this nursery. Our child loves going to nursery and seeing all her friends and staff. The staff are fab they really care for all the children. The activities that they provide the children are fun and tailored to the child's interests and development. We are kept regularly updated with our child's progress and daily activities they have done after a day at nursery, as well as parents evening where we have a chance to come and spend a little more time talking about our child with her key person. The food that the children are provided with is great too wth lots of variety.

Great place made to feel at ease and part of the nursery family from day one.

Really happy with the way my son is cared for on the days he attends and he is so happy to be there and has settled in so fast which has just put me at complete ease.

Food ticks all of his boxes and he really seems to enjoy and has moved on leaps and bounds in his capabilities with feeding himself.

Only been going a few weeks but it's been great and I feel really happy to leave my child in the nursery which I never thought I would.

I am very happy with my daughter's childcare. The provider is very flexible, I am a teacher and they provide a term-time contract (the only one in Stroud)
They are also happy to accommodate extra days. My daughter is very happy at nursery.The staff are friendly and she enjoys the food and activities.
The hours of the nursery are ideal - 7.30am until 6.30pm.
If my daughter is unwell, the nursery care is good and we are informed without being panicked.

My son has been attending the nursery for almost 12 months and is extremely happy when coming in the mornings.
He is developing really well and I have seen an improvement most days with his speech, understanding and general social development.
The staff are always friendly and welcoming and my son enjoys the vast array of food that is available.
I would definitely recommend this nursery to friends and family.

Both our children have attended this nursery and we have been really impressed with the provision. The staff are so lovely, we have really felt confident leaving our children in their care. It shows how much they care about and get to know each individual child.
The facilities are great, an extensive selection of toys and activities that change regularly. The garden is great.
It always seems clean and doesn't smell (unlike some nurseries we viewed)
The food quality and variety is excellent and very healthy.
Only negative is having to pay for bank holidays when the nursery is closed.

The staff are always friendly and happy. The nursery feels very welcoming and safe. It's lovely, all staff know my child's name and welcome him in the morning and say goodbye when leaving the nursery. My child always has an enjoyable day and has always eaten well. He takes part in many activities throughout the day even though he is still in the baby room. Staff go out of their way on special occasions such as making dad a birthday card.

My child has settled in lovely within the nursery setting. She seems happy with all members of staff. At the early stages when my child was slightly unsure about being left/away from me. All the staff were lovely and reassuring and let me stay in reception for a while, then they would go up and check to see that she had settled. I always get a detailed report of her day. Overall a lovely relaxed and child happy environment. 5* treatment.

My daughter thoroughly enjoys her time there and the staff are super, however we've had numerous issues with the administration and billing, receiving invoices for other children, and payment vouchers being reversed without consultation. It's also £10/day more expensive than a previous nursery so this certainly adds up.

I cannot fault this nursery at all.

Both my children always went in smiling and came out smiling.

My boys have a good time when coming to this nursery, and seem to eat well. They enjoy playing in the outdoor space and there is a variety of toys and activities including singing which the boys love. There is a limited amount of art which comes home (not a bad thing!) but they bring home cards for special occasions. If you want a minute by minute account of what your child has been up to, then this nursery is not for you (I have only used the toddler and preschool room, not the baby room) you get a general overview, but limited details unless there is a problem, in which case they are thorough. I like this though as I don't want pick up to take more than 5 mins. The staff are friendly and have taken the time to tell my identical twins apart. The toilets for the toddlers and preschoolers are obviously well used, but I have never, even at the end of the day, seen evidence of accidents or spills which is quite something. The early opening and late closing is very helpful.

I originally picked this nursery for my daughter as its opening hours really suited me as I work until 6 pm and that is when most other nurseries in the area close. My Daughter has now been at the nursery for 18 months and I am so pleased I picked this nursery. All the staff are friendly, helpful and always positive about my daughter and her day. The development of my daughter's speech, interpersonal skills and most recently potty training has been amazing and a lot of this is due to the time and effort all the staff put in with my daughter in the four days a week she is there. My daughter is happy and always wants to go to nursery, which for me as a parent is so important. If any issues arise they are dealt with quickly and efficiently.
