Our son will be joining Monkey puzzle in January and my husband and I are so excited for him to start! When we came for our walk around visit before signing him up we were made to feel so welcome and all the staff that we met were lovely. After having a walk round the nursery and garden area we had no doubt that this was going to be the nursery for our son. We felt so comfortable in the staffs company and really couldn’t have asked for more. We are really looking forward to him settling in and couldn’t have asked for a more welcoming team! I just know he will be so happy and settled here.
Sapphire has settled into Monkey Puzzle so well. She loves outdoor play, drawing, and sings new nursery rhymes with all the actions when she’s back home. The environment is always peaceful when we come to collect her in the evenings and the staff are always positive and friendly. Thank you to all the Monkey Puzzle staff for your hard work.
We are so pleased that we have enrolled our son at Monkey Puzzle, Orpington. He has developed so much and we thank the amazing staff for that. The sensory garden is fantastic and there is a great selection of books and traditional toys.
“Monkey Puzzle is an amazing place for children. My daughter loves to go to the nursery. She comes home with lots of interesting things. She built up her confidence and critical thinking. I would strongly recommend it.” Konchok Wangmo (Father of Child)
“Monkey puzzle is a lovely nursery it is very vibrant and welcoming, as soon as I walked in I was greeted not only by the staff but also by the children who seemed to be having an amazing time by the smiles on their faces!!!” Miss C (Mother of Child)
“Childcare provided to an excellent standard, with helpful and friendly staff.” Nicola Barrowcliffe (Mother of Child)
“They are good to my son who is 3 and a half years old. He loves going there.” Ann White (Mother of Child)
“Our son started at Monkey Puzzle in January 2014 and has loved every minute since then! They are always very welcoming and treat each child as an individual. He enjoys seeing his friends every day and has learnt so much since he started going. They are always playing in the garden and the children are encouraged to learn all about the plants and other things around them. They enjoy trips out both locally and further afield – they recently took the whole nursery to Woburn Safari Park! Our son has become very independent and now wants to do most things for himself. They handover with staff at the end of each day is thorough and gives you as a parent a good view of what your child has been up to. Thank you Monkey Puzzle!!” Claire (Mother of Child)
“Jessica is really enjoying her time with her carers and little friends at Monkey Puzzle. We are very happy with her progress and feel that she will learn even more by spending more time at the nursery where she learns everyday. It is amazing how much she has changed since attending the nursery and I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank to your team for the great job that they are doing.” Murielle and George Borthwick
“Monkey Puzzle is a lovely, happy nursery with fantastic staff who give plenty of love and cuddles. The activities are thoughtful and well planned, and there are plenty of toys and equipment to keep everyone happy and developing well. The nursery communicates brilliantly with parents; I always know what’s going on, and appears to be very well run. I whole-heartedly recommend this nursery
I have been totally happy with the care and love my son has received.” Jo Casey (Mother of Child)
“We are delighted with the range of opportunities offered to the children attending Monkey Puzzle. At Christmas, Monkey Puzzle arranged for the children to do some carol singing at a local sheltered housing scheme. My daughter Emma absolutely loved it and I think this is a really brilliant thing to do. I’m so proud that Emma was involved and I’m really happy that Monkey Puzzle does this sort of thing with the children. It’s really important for them and for our community.” Jane Revell (Mother of Child)
“This is a lovely nursery, which my little boy has been at since it opened. The staff are loving, caring, and nurturing, and there are cuddles aplenty. There is always plenty for the children to do with thoughtful planning – external visitors (Ambulance, Police car, and recently creepy crawlies for the children to stroke, watch and gasp in amazement at!) and internal activities (plenty of gardening, for example). The communication between staff and parents is excellent and there is a lot of respect between the staff and manager, which is always great to see. I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.” Jo (Mother of Child)
“I would like to thank you and your staff, who are charming and brilliant .My twins joined your nursery on 18 March, three days a week. I feel so proud when I drop them and pick them from your nursery, see my babies happy surrounded by happy/pleasant carers. My twins have nicely settled in nursery in a very short time. All because of your loving and caring staff. It’s so nice to know that they are in safe hands.
I am so happy and proud that I choose Monkey Puzzle for my babies. This wasn’t an easy decision as I have visited almost all the nurseries in Bedford, read ofsted reports. The moment I entered your nursery I could feel the pleasant atmosphere.”

“Thank you so much for looking after me when I was at nursery and preschool. Thank you for teaching me things that I now know and thank you for your patience, as I know at times I was hard work. I want to say a big thank you to Eno who encouraged me to try different food, so that I’m not so fussy. April I really love you the best and will miss you lots and lots, but the good thing is that you will still see me as I will be coming with my mum to pick up my sisters.. so not got rid of me yet! I will miss you all.”
“Since starting phonics, we have been spotting letters and words whenever we go out. ”
“Making sure that all the children in preschool follow a routine has really helped establish one at home.”
“Monkey Puzzle Preschool really prepared Mylie for school. She knew how to line up nicely and wait for everyone to have their food before eating. She was also ahead with her reading and writing from the Jolly Phonics sessions.”
“We are very pleased with Horatio’s progress, which seems to be largely due to Eno’s enthusiasm and willingness to push him academically. He is also enjoys having David in Pre-school as a male role model and he loves learning French with Zoe. Thank you!”
