My son is due to start in the babies' room at the Monkey Puzzle nursery in the autumn when he's 6 months old. I signed up on the open day, before the nursery had opened and only a few days after they'd completed building works, so it was pretty bare and it wasn't possible to get a sense of what it would be like once it was up and running. Now that it's been going a few months (I think), is there anyone who'd be able to give me a bit of a sense of what it's like? Many thanks!

Hi. I've just signed my daughter up to Monkey Puzzle to start in September. Will report back after she starts.

Hi there, my son started there a month ago. we really like it. professional staff, good range of activities, very good daily reporting. i've seen the baby room and staff who works there look very caring. pm me if you need more info.

Hi Kedy, how is everything? So far so good? Which room your son is going? How about the <24 months and 3+ rooms?

My daughter is in her third full time week at Monkey Puzzle in the toddler room and she absolutely loves it. She’s really close to Jodie, Steph and Courtney and is so excited to see them each morning. It only took her two days to properly settle and she can’t wait to go to nursery. Would highly recommend.

Hi all, sorry i didnt see these messages earlier!

RachelPC - all good, we love it. My son is excited to go there everyday - they have nice activities, e.g. Halloween party yesterday. They also have an app where they upload kids' development, and everyday routines e.g. how much they ate, slept, did they go to toilet etc. Found it useful. Highly recommend.

WelshMumInCambridge - ours are in the same room, we must have bumped into each other at some point smile

My daughter has just been offered a space in the toddler room. I’m going next week to have a look around, Thank I you for this thread! Can I ask about how you are all feeling now about it? As it’s been open for around a year now, have your children stayed settled? Also drop off - I will be doing a combination of bike and car drop of/pick up is this even possible in the location?

Thank you for any replies xx

We are thinking about this nursery too. Kindly let me know if you guys are still happy with the nursery.

Hi, yes we are really happy. I have a 3 year old in pre-school there plus a 15 month old in the baby room. Both have settled really well.
