What we do


There are many activities in addition to the core learning and play that takes place at the nursery and supports the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework. These activities are planned in advance and very often with parent participation. The nursery currently holds weekly Sing and Sign lessons along with daily activate sessions.

The day nursery team also take full advantage of the location and regularly take the children on walking trips to local places of interest.

Our People

Our day nursery team are friendly, approachable, enthusiastic and passionate about the care of our children. There is a dedicated, loyal team of 24 colleagues who help our children to have the best start in life in a bright and modern nursery setting. All the team have attended numerous training courses to enhance their knowledge, enabling them to provide superior care and enjoyable learning experiences for our children. They are all qualified to NVQ level 3 or working towards their qualifications.

Outdoor Facilities

The nursery has its own garden area that allows the children to play outside all year round. The children have taken part in creating a tranquil area within the garden through planting and growing where they can sit quietly, learn about nature and enjoy the flowers. One section of the nursery garden has been designed as a beach, giving the children the freedom to explore and experiment with texture and volume.

There is also an area specifically designed for pre-school development which has its own fence and table and chairs to create a secure environment for children to learn.

There is a large car park area for parents to drop off and pick up in and the nursery is situated on a bus route to Oxford, Carterton and surrounding villages.

Parents as Partners

The parents have an information board located in the reception area which has a variety of useful information. In the various 0-3 year olds home rooms they have a daily diary book which includes the children’s daily information at our nurseries of how they have been, including sleep, food, nappies and anything that they have enjoyed during the day. The 3-5 year olds carers give verbal feedback to the parent on a daily basis.

Regular newsletters are sent to parents to keep them updated on up and coming events and we encourage parent participation in many of them. Parent evenings are offered at regular intervals throughout the year where the child's key person discusses the child's development with their parents and there is also an annual survey for parents to give structured feedback on all areas of the nursery.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child’s learning by informing the nursery team what has been taking place at home and by participating in special events.

What our parents say

We think the Madley Park nursery is excellent. The staff are very friendly and professional. There is a really nice atmosphere and the food provided is clearly to Issac's liking. Isaac really enjoys going to nursery and the biggest problem is persuading him to leave at the end of the day.

Great staff and facilities! Both my children attend the nursery and they are very happy there!

I cannot praise Madley Park Co-operative Nursery enough. You open the door and immediately feel the fun and welcoming atmosphere that they have created. It is clear the children love being there and they all love Gareth the Manager who doesn't just hide in the back office and take your money. I have experienced other nurseries in the past and I have never felt so happy and comfortable when leaving my son in someone else's care. From A very happy Mum.

Both boys love the nursery, they always have smiles when we drop them off and pick them up. That speaks volumes!

Gareth & his team at Madley Park offer exceptional care. From the moment you walk through the door you can tell they truly care for all the children and want the children to enjoy themselves. The proof is when the kids don't want to go home as they are having so much fun!

Fantastic nursery where our daughter is cared for excellently. The management are warm and friendly, the room staff treat our daughter as if she's one of their family members and she adores them! The chef produces fantastic varied meals.

The staff are fantastic. Everyone from management all the way down can't do enough for your child and are very understanding of personal circumstances. Gareth the manager is always happy to offer support if needed and the girls that look after the children have a great relationship with parents and clearly love their job. My son loves his carers.
