For over fifteen years Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries have been working closely with parents, staff and Ofsted to deliver childcare of the highest quality, providing children with unlimited opportunities to play, learn and grow within a safe, secure and caring environment.

Babies

3 – 14 Months

During the time your baby is with us, they will stay in our baby’s room, a space designed with their needs in mind.

Your baby will be looked after by a dedicated and specially trained team of individuals. They will each care directly for no more than three children at any one time. In doing so, our team are able to provide the intimate care your young child needs. This will also be achieved in a way that works in partnership with your parenting, so your child maintains consistency in their daily care.

Preschool

3 – 5 Years

We are trained and qualified to support your child’s education all the way through to joining school. All children’s development at the nursery is underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage which is the framework that your child will be assessed under in their first year at school. At our nurseries, we do this by carefully weaving development into your child’s play each and every day. Our approach to learning ensures that your preschool children are ready when the time comes to transition to school.

It's Universal Children's Day ✨

Universal Children's Day has a goal to improve child welfare worldwide, promote and celebrate children’s rights and promote togetherness and awareness amongst all children❤️

There have been many versions of a ‘Children’s Day’ celebrated by different countries at different times. 

- In America, this is celebrated on the second Sunday of June.
- In Turkey, Children’s Day is celebrated on the 23rd of April. 
- In Russia, they declared the 1st of June to be the International Day for Protection of Children. 

So how can we celebrate Universal Children's Day?

⭐ Encourage your children to work with others! 
⭐ Talk to your little ones about how each and every person is unique, how they may have some differences in the way they look, their likes and dislikes, and how this is normal and natural. 
⭐ Encourage your children to celebrate themselves! Celebrating individuality is a great way to boost their self-worth and begin to appreciate their strengths.

Discover a career in childcare later on in life ✨

At Monkey Puzzle, we fully train, support and develop our people to kickstart their journey in Early Years. The childcare sector has no age limits, don’t be afraid to try something new and challenge yourself.

Mandy, our Nursery Group Support Manager has been in the childcare sector for over 20 years, however she did not begin her career until her late 30’s. Mandy says:

“No matter your age, it is lovely to see the children develop and be a part of that process. I don’t think age comes into it, if you feel you are able to be active with the children and you are young in your own mind, it doesn’t matter. It’s the passion of working with children and what is in your heart.”

We couldn’t agree more! ❤️

If the childcare sector sounds like it could be the right path for you and you would like to read more about Mandy’s journey, head over to our website monkeypuzzledaynurseries.com/staff/mandy-support-manager/

It's Anti Bullying week ✨

Anti-Bullying Week takes place from the 14th to 18th of November and has the theme Reach Out. The week will kick off with Odd Socks Day on Monday 14th November, where adults and children wear odd socks to celebrate what makes us all unique.

Bullying affects millions of lives and can leave us feeling hopeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we challenge it, we can change it. And it starts by reaching out.

For more information, head over to https://anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/anti-bullying-week-2022-reach-out 

Never be afraid to Reach Out ♥️

It's World Kindness Day ♥️

World Kindness Day is celebrated every year on 13th November. On this day, we attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting everything good and carrying out acts of kindness.

We challenge you to carry out five acts of kindness each! Kind acts don't need to cost you money; they could be anything from helping someone or giving them a compliment. 

Random acts of kindness are one of the best ways to spread some cheer and happiness around! 

Let us know which acts of kindness you complete today in the comments below👇

It's Remembrance Day ♥️

Remembrance Day, also called Armistice Day or Poppy Day, is a Memorial Day to celebrate the end of World War One. It ended on November 11th 1918 at 11am, which is why many people hold a two-minute silence at 11am. 

Today we honour and remember the soldiers lives and their sacrifices from the First World War by wearing our poppies, attending ceremonies, and listening to real life stories.

Discover how the season changes impact our nursery menus✨
The changing of seasons impacts everything around us – from the weather to the way we dress and what we eat. At Monkey Puzzle, our nursery chefs alter their menus according to the season, ensuring that the children are getting a balanced and nutritious diet all year round.

Today we speak to Gary, the nursery chef at Monkey Puzzle Loughton. Gary is responsible for delivering the nutritious and delicious food that we provide for our children.

Gary says: "I think it is important that nutrition changes with the seasons because it gives the children the ability to eat different foods that are only available during certain times of the year, thus giving them nutrients which they might not throughout the rest of the year."

To read more about how Gary provides balanced and nutritious meals, head over to our website https://monkeypuzzledaynurseries.com/staff/gary-nursery-chef/
