Day Nursery Oxford

Welcome To The Co-operative Childcare

About our nursery

At The Co-operative Childcare nurseries, we never underestimate how difficult a decision it is to leave your child in the care of others and our aim is to ensure that you have all the information you need to make this very important decision.

The nursery is a stimulating, safe and secure environment for your child and we pride ourselves on our warm and welcoming atmosphere.


What our parents say

Staff excellent. Generally flexible and staff really seem to love the children. Food is good. 

Staff very imaginative with activities and have real enthusiasm.

We have been very happy with this nursery. We feel our son is happy and very safe in the baby room. He's very close to his key person and has formed bonds with the rest of the staff in the room. At nursery he gets to play and participate in stimulating activities. They also get a very nutritious diet!

It is a very friendly place. The staff and the children are very kind. Our daughter was very happy here and connected well to the people, although she only went there three afternoons a week.

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. Our ethos at our day nursery is very much on a child centred approach as all our activities are planned around each child's individual needs, interests and abilities. In addition to focused activities, children are offered freedom of choice throughout the nursery. Yoga classes have recently been introduced for our over 2 year olds and have proven to be a great success. Our onsite chef also spends time within the room assisting the nursery team with cooking activities and educating our children about healthy eating.

Our People

Our nursery Oxford team are friendly, approachable, energetic and have a range of skills, knowledge and experiences that ensure we provide the best possible care and enjoyable learning for our children. The dedicated and loyal team of 26 colleagues work together to ensure our children have the best start in life. The majority of the day nursery team who work directly with our children hold a recognised qualification and the remaining colleagues are working towards obtaining their qualifications. Two members of the team hold a BA Honors degree in Early Years and an additional three colleagues are currently working towards completing their degrees.

Outdoor Facilities

The nursery has a garden area with space for the children to explore and move around freely. In addition to our main garden, we have a smaller more secluded area, which is used by our under 2 year olds. Both garden areas have beautiful views of the local canals which attract wildlife such as birds and ducks. The children also enjoy spending time train spotting due to the nurseries proximity to the railway station.

The nursery Oxford is a three minute walk away and we are conveniently located to the city centre, university and Cherwell College.

There is a free car park available for dropping off and collecting children. We also have an onsite push chair shed to store personal buggies whilst some parents commute to work.

Parents as Partners

Each day at our nurseries, parents receive detailed feedback about their child's day which includes verbal feedback and daily information sheets. There are regular parent evenings which provide a great opportunity for our parents to gain detailed knowledge about their child's development and progress at the nursery. An annual survey enables parents to share their views and suggestions about the service they receive and our parents are actively encouraged to make suggestions and share information about their child to ensure we achieve a partnership approach.
