One of our newest additions to the Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery nationwide network, will open its doors to the public in September 2013. Situated in the newly renovated Loxfords building in Highbury Park, this historic and elegant property also boasts an environmental breakthrough, incorporating a unique heating and energy system that reduces harmful emissions to a level hardly seen before.
The system is one of the first to be installed in a new development anywhere in London and will provide heat and energy for the nursery, while having a low detrimental impact on the local environment.
Now I could try and offer you, the reader, a chemistry lesson on how the process works, but I feel you would lose interest rapidly and I would get thoroughly confused! So I thought it best for Monkey Puzzle Highbury’s owner, Geoff Kent to explain in layman’s terms.
“This revolutionary method of providing the energy and heat that we need to operate, utilises glycerine waste which is added to standard biofuels, providing our energy needs with very low emissions. It is currently recognised as the greenest fuel solution available”
“The use of glycerine waste which burns more efficiently and produces less emissions, also limits the reliance on growing bio fuels, freeing up land which can then be used for growing food crops.”
The day nursery which is a family affair, being run by husband and wife team, Geoff and Wendy Kent and supported by their son Anthony, has a strong focus on being environmentally friendly. The furniture within the nursery has been sourced from sustainable beech forests in the Baltic states and whenever a decision is to be made by them regarding the nursery, wherever possible they will choose a green alternative.
So keep an eye out for more news and the opening date for London’s “greenest day nursery”, in our humble opinion, the ideal place for your child to begin their educational journey.
