Enquire with Monkey Puzzle

Our nursery environment and facilities enable your child to explore, develop and learn. Our Baby, Toddler and Preschool spaces are specially designed and equipped especially with them in mind. You’ll see many familiar homely items such as bookcases, tables, chairs, and sofas just much smaller than you are used to!

We consider the spaces around your child to be their third teacher, joining you as parents and us as educators in guiding them through their learning. And you’ll notice how we use our garden area as an outdoor classroom too, full of features to support their play and learning. Our Baby, Toddler and Preschool rooms are perfect for the ages of children that spend their time in them.

We keep many aspects of our nursery environments consistent as we know your child will benefit greatly from this. With core resources, enriching toys, games and creative materials, that are always at hand for your child to play with. However, it is not unusual for parts of our nurseries to become unique adventure places where your child’s imagination can run free!

Babies Environment

Babies (3 months to approximately 2 years old) benefit from a bright and open plan room with dedicated areas for non-mobile children. Staff cater for their individual requirements. Babies are supplied with their own bedding and the temperature is constantly monitored to ensure babies are comfortable at all times.  Each baby is encouraged to develop through creative and sensory activities. We have a cosy book area and a sensory play area and our children enjoy activities structured around their changing interests.

All children receive a hot nutritious meal at lunch time and our dedicated staff team sit with the children to encourage communication and social interaction.

Toddlers and Preschool Environment

Both floors are large, bright and spacious.  The toddler area has been designed with sensory and creative areas to develop and stimulate the children’s inquisitive minds. Developing their numeracy and literacy skills is facilitated with specific areas.  The room benefits from a creative area for messy play, a home corner, a reading corner and a free play area to allow them to participate in a well-structured day, which helps prepare the preschoolers for primary school. In addition, each floor has its own toilets and sinks to help encourage toilet training for the younger children and independence for the older children.  We operate a 1:4 ratio with our toddlers and a 1:8 ratio with our Preschool room.

Outside Play Area

Our amazingly well-equipped, fully enclosed outdoor play area allows children’s learning to continue outside. This is a creative space where children can grow.

They are able to ride around our own little road, learn crossing skills on the zebra crossing, and stopping and starting at traffic light colours. There is an all-weather grassed bank with a wondrous numbered giant caterpillar to learn counting and colours and play with water and sand. We also have a pirate ship, climbing frame and slide for the children to explore and enjoy. The children are also able to enjoy picnics and tea parties or sitting and reading can all be done in our cosy outdoor shaded area. Anything the children want to achieve outside, we can support them to make this happen in a safe and stimulating environment.

To help the children access the playground all year round, we also have a large canopy-covered area meaning our children can enjoy the fresh air and exercise no matter the weather.

Car Park

We have a large car park for pick-up and collection, helping to ensure that every visit to the nursery is welcoming, safe and convenient for both your child and you.
