  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.795 for The Co-operative Childcare Swindon Hospital Nursery is calculated as follows: ( (562 Excellents x 5) + (124 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 694 Ratings = 4.795

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Co-operative Childcare Swindon Hospital Nursery is based on 23 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

We have two children currently at the nursery. We have used other nurseries in the area and seen many. This nursery is by far one of the best in Swindon. The facilities are excellent. The staff are well qualified and really help with child development at all stages. Both our children are extremely happy and enjoy attending. The management team is very open and welcoming. They are always available to talk if needed.

I have used the Co-operative at GWH for both my children for ease of work. I have always been incredibly impressed by the staff's professionalism and incredible engagement with the children. My daughter absolutely adores them all. I am always filled in on her day at pick up. On the few occasions, she hasn’t gone in well in the morning someone is always quick to get her involved and keep her distracted when I leave. I always have peace of mind when leaving, which made things so much easier going back to work after maternity leave.

Always found the employees here to be warm, open and passionate about the care of my son - always ready to support parents where necessary and help with any queries - they show so much care and warmth for the kids it's lovely to see - my son thrives in this environment - the welfare of children comes first and in doing so they inspire so much trust and confidence in me - they encourage engagement and involvement that I cherish as I get to hear so much about my son's day every day - love it.

My 3-year-old loves this nursery, and so do I. It was a big adjustment for her to go to nursery, but the staff are fantastic, and they make her feel at ease and comfort her when she's upset.
The nursery also uses an app to update you on your child's day. It's brilliant, as you can see what they have been doing, and what they have had to eat, and if there's anything going on in the nursery that you need to know about. It also allows you to communicate with the staff too.
This is a fantastic nursery that I fully recommend.

My daughter has been coming since 1 year old and is now moving upto preschool soon.
She has come on so much, speech, character, personality and has made lots of little friendships.
The ladies that look after her do an amazing job, one lady has been on and off with her moving up rooms since day 1, keeping that one face she has known from the start.

All staff are lovely.

Such a 'great' nursery, I'm so happy I picked this one for my daughter.

I would definitely recommend to others.

My little boy has only just started and we have found the settling in process to be great. They listen to you and take your anxieties about leaving your child into account and offer as many settling in’s and you see fit.

My son seems very happy here and the staff and learning environment is excellent. I looked around many nurseries and this by far was better than any nursery I saw. I knew instantly that my boy was going to be happy here.

Fantastic nursery! My daughter attends twice a week and has a wonderful time; she does painting, drawing, playing outside and lots of other fun things.

The staff are just as wonderful and caring.

The food is freshly prepared and always sound yummy.

The nursery is having some building work done to make it bigger, which will be good.

Excellent nursery! Always puts the child first. My daughter started when she was 10 months and has been at the nursery for 8 months now. All the staff helped settle her into the nursery and she will happily go to any member of staff. She is meeting her development mile stones and is extremely happy. So happy that sometimes she doesn’t want to leave!!!

We have been so happy with this nursery. I am so glad I decided to enrol my daughter here because I genuinely do not believe there is another nursery anywhere that is as amazing as this one. My daughter is so happy here, she cries when it’s time to go home! I’m sad that my daughter is due to start primary school in September because she and I are going to be sad that we won’t get to come and see everyone at the nursery anymore! Staff are fantastic and it is like leaving her with trusted friends, as they really take the time and effort to get to know the family. Thanks Co-op. We love you!

What a fantastic nursery! Every single member of staff has made our children feel welcome, safe and secure which is all we can ask as parents. Staff build wonderfully strong, lasting relationships and offer a stimulating, varied and challenging environment for the children. Our daughter comes out full of the experiences she has had and the friendships she has built, both children and staff. Staff report back to parents clearly with relevant information. I thought the recent Pre School information evening/parents evening was a very important part of our daughter's transition into the next stage of nursery. All staff do everything they can to help with any queries. We can not recommend this nursery highly enough, their team do an amazing job!

Such a lovely nursery! Being an anxious mum, I am put at ease from the minute I step into the nursery, the whole team are lovely and always smiling. My son has come on leaps and bounds in his socialising skills and much more. It is clear that the children are the upmost important to all the carers involved and I'm so glad and grateful for all they do. I couldn't have asked for a better nursery. He has loved it from the start (9months now 3) and plus it's only over the road from my work so can be there in an instant if ever needed.

It's a great nursery. The car park can be slow to enter if you don't have a hospital pass, but care and learning for the children are the most important things and this nursery does that extremely well. I highly recommend this nursery to friends and family.

I couldn't recommend this nursery enough. After a long time thinking about the childcare provisions within the area and extensive looking around at the nurseries in Swindon, I stumbled upon this nursery and I was really impressed with how informative they were on the telephone, as with any first time parent I was sick with nerves leaving my child, but they were fantastic and they really reassured me and didn't make me feel stupid that I was feeling this way.
My child is now in the pre-school room and has gone through all the rooms. My child has developed well in all areas of development and I feel this is down to the staff in the nursery.
There is a welcoming vibe from the entrance of the nursery right through to the kitchen. Everyone is always happy and shows an interest in my child. I feel these girls at the nursery are another part of our family as they have been a massive part in my families lives.
I could not thank them enough for the memories they have created!

My son has been attending the nursery for nearly 6 months now and he loves it, it's very comforting to know he actually wants to go in the mornings when I'm at work. The nursery was fantastic helping him settle in and made a picture collage for me of his first day as they knew that I was feeling emotional going back to work. The activities they do are extremely varied and my son has come on leaps and bounds. The food is great too, the menu is very varied and the food looks and smells lovely too. The management team are lovely and are really approachable, I feel confident that the nursery staff are in wise hands.

A fantastic nursery with warm and helpful staff who helped my 22-month old enjoy a year of fun and games.
We only left because my job moved and both of us miss it daily.
A wonderful purpose built nursery, with excellent catering, and all the facilities you would expect - but the thing that makes it are the staff.
They always give a daily handover and seem to genuinely enjoy what they do.

All the staff are friendly, welcoming and show professionalism and care to all the children. My son loves going and we'll miss it when he goes to school in September this year. The food provided is brilliant and a good variety. The learning and development skills my son has gained is amazing. He enjoys listening to the staff reading and loves to play in the garden, especially bike riding.

I am very impressed with the Co-op Nursery at Great Western Hospital. My daughter was there for 2 years and is now at school. I didn't have any hesitation sending my son there when he was 11 months old.
He has a cow's milk allergy and I went in to speak to the manager and they were more than happy to accommodate his needs, even having dairy free ice cream there on occasion. He has now started having some dairy products to try to re-introduce him and I have spoken to the cook who is happy to listen to me about what he can and can't have.
When I drop him, I don't get a backwards glance from him as he goes into his room and is immediately settled and playing.
I can't recommend this nursery highly enough, they treat every child individually and bring the best out of them.

I have two children who attend this nursery, and both of them enjoy going. The nursery is a little limited on outdoor space, but they have mode the most of what they have got, and they encourage the children to go outside as much as possible. The children have access to a whole range of toys and games and different activities are always being arranged to encourage them. It is a really friendly environment and the staff have been very welcoming and flexible and really worked with us and listened to us and our individual requirements.

The atmosphere in the nursery is great. It is a very Lovely place. The staff is very nice always happy to help, well presented and attentive. Staff seem caring and knowledgeable always happy to help. Kids always seem happy around the staff, busy doing things and enjoying themselves, kids seem well controlled and with good manners. The outdoor area is wonderful, my son loves it and it is a great space for them to play with each other. It is great the importance of food and nutrition that the nursery applies and the idea to increase 5 a day with free fruit for kids to take home is excellent. It would be nice maybe some time to do world food and ask parents if need help getting a recipe together.

My daughter has been at Swindon Co-op from 1 years old and will be graduating from preschool this year. Throughout her time at the nursery staff have given her excellent care and attention and showed genuine interest in her. She has learned a great deal and staff have made every effort to support any learning needs I have highlighted. I believe the nursery has given her an excellent start to socialising; varying her diet, and learning.

My child has been attending this nursery for nearly 4 years and still loves going. He is now a confident, outgoing child, ready for school. Very friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and always happy to help.

My daughter had a lovely time at this nursery. Notably down to a handful of carers. She was looked after and encouraged to be her best.
The downside was the disorganisation of admin matters where I had to ask three times for a particular payment plan, which were ignored and things were forgotten quickly. Emails got lost. In the end, I couldn't be sure that things would get done unless I did them myself.
Overall though I felt happy leaving my little girl there and knew she was happy.

Always confident my daughter has had a fun packed day. She learns so much and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. I think there are lots of facilities and activities for her to learn from and make her day enjoyable.

All staff at the Swindon Hospital Nursery are very welcoming, friendly and very approachable. My daughter has now been going for a year and she has come on leaps and bounds with all the activities and socialisation that goes with the nursery so much so she doesn't always want to come home when I go to collect her - to me that says a lot and is a credit to the nursery of how comfortable, confident and familiar she is with the staff and fellow peers. I haven't got one fault with the nursery and would highly recommend it. It's the best thing I have done and made going back to work a lot easier knowing my daughter has brilliant care.

The team at Co-op Swindon are amazing. They really go the extra mile to settle children and get to know them. I'm confident that all the staff know my boys (age 1 and 4) and will do their best to care for them and educate them creatively, whilst minimising my stress! In addition, the meals are good and nappies and other personal care products are provided making parents' lives easier. I would highly recommend this nursery-my boys love it.

I had to change nursery when my daughter was 3. She'd been at her other one since she was 14months old, so I was worried about moving her. My fears were unfounded; she settled in pretty much immediately. The staff are all wonderful with her. They deal well with her 'spirited' personality and she has flourished there. We are amazed every week by new things she has learnt. It's a fantastic place which she loves. We'll be very sad when she leave for school in September!

I have had two children pass through the nursery in each age class. Both have very different personalities and needs and the nursery has gone above and beyond every day to give them fantastic learning experiences and have fun in the process. The staff are all so friendly and approachable and could not fault any of them in any way. Children are always well fed and come home telling me stories of all they have done and the friends they have made.

We went and looked at over 5 Nursery's in the Swindon area and even though The Co-operative Childcare Swindon Hospital Nursery was a little out of our way, we are extremely impressed from the start with the attitude and friendliness of the staff, the rooms and outside area and how happy the children appeared. Our daughter has now been there for nearly two years and has been in three of the four rooms, all the way from a baby to a happy 2 and a half year old. I credit the nursery with how rounded our daughter is. She loves going and her key member of staff in each room has been brilliant. All the staff from the kitchen to the front office interact and are interested in the children, both in terms of their development and having fun. I couldn't recommend this nursery more if you want peace of mind when you're having to go to work.

This is my son's first nursery and he went in from the age of one. From the beginning, the staff have all been amazing starting with the taster sessions a few months ago. They were extremely accommodating and really helped him settle in. Since going full time, he has loved going to this nursery and his daily reports have made interesting reading. The management and staff are always welcoming and personable making the process in the early days much easier. He has now settled into his room, which has loads of activities indoors and outdoors which he loves and they are all well suited to a young boys needs. The menu and food are excellent and he is defiantly getting his fill during the day (I'm having to up my game at home!!). There are no hidden costs, his food and nappies are all included. I would highly recommend the Nursery, and it's been a pleasure to send my boy there.

Being a first-time mum leaving my baby was quite scary. The staff in the baby room were all very good and made me feel comfortable with leaving him, I like having the review when I pick him up, by knowing what he has eaten, slept and played with. There's a good variety of food at meal times. He has learnt lots of new things and got lots of new interests through playing with all the toys and activities. The variety of toys in the garden, outdoor space is also good too.

I have had 2 children attend this nursery and they both love it. They always have taken part in a range of activities. The staff have always been very supportive and offer advice when required. They are always happy to talk through any concerns and my girls have had a wonderful relationship with all that have looked after them. The food is always good too.

This is an outstanding nursery - my daughter is now in the pre-school room having been at the nursery since she was under a year old. My daughter loves the nursery and is always keen to go and be with her friends and take part in the activities - she's happy and so I am happy.

I am particularly impressed with the management team as they are currently dealing with a crisis (out of their hands) where a suspected gas leak has meant that they currently have no heating or the ability to cook meals, but they have risen to the challenge hugely - the children are warm and still get their hot dinners - as far as my daughter is concerned there is no problem at all. (In addition to which we have been kept informed of the situation)

As a mother with a disability (deaf) I have also been very pleased with their methods of staying in touch with me as I do not use the telephone - email and text is not a problem at all - I have always been made to feel welcome and can chat with any member of staff about any issues I might have.

I truly recommend this outstanding nursery - I know that my daughter will miss it when she starts school this September.

Last summer I knew nothing whatsoever about nurseries or preschools, or even whether they were the same thing. Having just moved to Swindon, I had the task of organising a nursery place for my daughter to start in the September, so I began ringing around. Some of the nurseries I spoke to seemed rather shocked at the idea that I would be applying for a place so late in the day (as if I had a choice in the matter), while others dismissively said they'd put my daughter's name at the bottom of their very long waiting list. Then I called the Cooperative Nursery, which is conveniently placed next to the hospital where my partner was working, and they could not have been more helpful. They got a place sorted out that very day, answered all the silly questions I had about how everything from payments to pick-up times worked, and arranged a visit for us to look around. As she was unused to being left anywhere without me or her mum, the staff at the nursery encouraged me to stay and play for a bit during the first few sessions whilst she got used to the place; to be honest, I needn't have stayed after the first one, as she settled so quickly. By allocating one of the staff as a 'key person' for her, it was clear that my daughter very quickly felt at home, and always had someone to go to with her problems.

As the year progressed, I would regularly get to hear about how she was progressing at nursery. Despite how busy pick-up and drop-off times could be, the teachers always had time to share a quick word about the kids and how they'd got on each day, and on top of that we periodically received reports on her development relative to the standards expected for her age group. The food provided in the afternoons was fairly simple, but sufficiently varied to ensure that she would stop playing long enough to eat something most days.

As an aside, I genuinely think that the staff deserve some kind of medal for the combined hours that they must have spent applying suncream over the summer months; every day when I dropped my daughter off one of the teachers had the bottle, and they were scrupulous about ensuring that none of the kids went outside without proper protection from the sun (or rain - this is the UK after all).

When the time came to say goodbye, and all the leavers had trooped up in their gowns and mortar boards to collect their certificates (with varying degrees of aplomb), I felt nothing but gratitude to the wonderful staff at the nursery who gave me a few valuable hours to myself each week; and who had made both myself and my daughter feel so welcome. If the teachers at her new school are half as good as the ones we've left behind, we will consider ourselves very fortunate indeed.
