Welcome to Monkey Puzzle Ware. A beautiful nursery setting offering outstanding childcare to Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers aged 3 months to 5 years old.

Our Vision

Here at Monkey Puzzle Ware our vision is to:

  • Create strong minded, independent thinkers who leave our setting ready and eager to continue their educational journey
  • Ensure our children have the skills to be happy, resilient, confident young people
  • Shape young minds to be contributing members of society that challenge negative stereotypes and celebrate diversity
  • Provide children with the real-life experiences that they may not have been exposed to before so that every child can draw from personal experience when learning
  • Support families to be co-educators and helping them to understand the importance of parents as partners

Our Aim

We aim to do this by:

  • Creating strong attachments for both children and families from the initial home visit to the emotional farewell
  • Providing a homely, caring environment which is also stimulating to encourage curiosity, concentration, creativity, energy and persistence
  • Seizing the moment in children’s learning so that they can live, learn, play and develop in the here and now
  • offering children real-life experiences both inside and outside of the setting regardless of economic background
  • Supporting families in understanding their children’s learning and working in partnership with them throughout their child’s journey with us
  • Celebrating the unique child, family and staff member throughout our British values
  • Promoting staff well-being so that practitioners are equipped to support child well-being

“I would like to say that I really love the nursery. I enjoy how much the nursery involves the parents in the care of their children. We receive weekly newsletters so I know exactly what is going on down to what they will be eating. We are able to attend informative events at the nursery involving different aspects of our children’s care.

The nursery excels in childcare, they are nurturing towards my children and that is really important to me. They’re teaching my children to be kind and loving as well as encouraging them to learn.

I highly recommend Monkey Puzzle to all parents whenever I get asked about nurseries.”

Baby and Toddler Room Parent

“Both myself and my husband would like to take this opportunity to express how happy we are with the level of care, guidance and nurturing given by Monkey Puzzle nursery. Our daughter has been with the nursery since she was just over a year old (she is now two and a half) and the progress in each area of child development has been so visible to see and we truly believe a lot of this is down to the care and teachings of the staff there.

We value the strong communication from the managerial team down to the daily catch ups with our daughter’s key carer, the variety of subjects she is taught on a weekly basis and the way the staff are there to help us learn how to guide her in milestone moments, like toilet training.

From a family medical perspective, we have had a turbulent year and the nursery staff ensured our daughter had a caring, consistent familiar place for her to continue to thrive and feel safe. They went above and beyond in supporting us and our daughter, which was invaluable to us.

At a time when many of my friends are taking their toddlers out of a privately-paid nursery and into a nursery attached to a particular school, we are happy and eager to leave our daughter with Monkey Puzzle all the way until the school transition, as we know how much she loves it there.”

Toddler Room Parent

“We would like to say just how amazed we are at the standard of care Monkey Puzzle has provided for our daughters. It is the only place both girls have walked in and clearly felt so confident that they are safe and going to have a good day. Their days are creative and stimulating and always enjoyed. When we collect them, the staff always have time to speak to us and tell us about their day and have a genuine interest in what is going on in their lives. The relationship staff have with the children is one of mutual love and respect.

In addition to this, the nursery have gone beyond the required level of care with the support they provided for our ASD diagnosed daughter. This has been the only environment which she tolerated and enjoyed. Throughout her time at Monkey Puzzle she was supported in areas she found challenging whilst being encouraged to excel in areas she was interested in. The handover and transition support to school was amazing and ensured that staff in her new setting were prepared for how to interpret behaviours and best support her whilst my daughter also had confidence in managing the change.

The support we received as parents from the nursery whilst going through the diagnosis process was so valuable and we feel very lucky to have had such amazing support.

With Monkey Puzzle it feels like our children and ourselves have gained a larger family. One that we could not do without.”

Pre-School Parent

“We have only been a part of Monkey Puzzle Nursery for a short time but have been eagerly awaiting our sons start. We feel lucky to have found such a lovely Nursery with such great staff who we believe will look after and care for our boy in a way any parent would hope for. Our son’s key worker has made settling in a lovely experience and already he is happy to see her when she greets us at the start of his day. It was really great to be able to meet his key worker at the home visit and we felt instantly comforted knowing we had someone to talk to about any concerns etc.

We love parent zone and was great to see his first observation go up…we look forward to seeing more! Thank you everyone at Monkey Puzzle!”
