Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle Walk

Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk Raises Over £1600!

We are incredibly proud of our children, who were selected to feature in the following video, made by Save the Children to celebrate and publicise their Muddy Puddle Walk fundraising event.

Across the country, thousands of nurseries, groups and families joined in the fun – and raised vital funds to help save children’s lives.

You can just about imagine the amount of work which went into making the video with all the preparation, permissions and all the mud to clean up afterwards!! Lots of Muddy Puddles! A huge thank you to all the staff for their help.

A very successful day and a great video. We are very proud of our film star children!

Update: Wow! Not only did everybody have fun on the day the Highbury Team raised over £1600! Well done everyone.

Who’s In London’s Top 10 Day Nurseries? Bromley Of Course!

It’s party time at Bromley Monkey Puzzle day nursery!


Well, after only being open for just over 2 years they are celebrating making the Top 10 most recommended day nurseries in London as awarded by The awards are based on over 28,000 reviews from parents, relatives and guardians of children who attend the nurseries.

Industry awards are always well received, but when the award is based on parent and guardian recommendations, it makes it that much more special!

Owner Arlind Marku is understandably over the moon, “We are delighted to be recognised with this award after 18 months of opening. The staff and parents are understandably ecstatic! We aspire to be the best nursery in Bromley and we treat every child as our own and put a great deal of emphasis on parent partnership. I want to thank all the parents for their kind recommendations and especially all of our staff and managers for their hard work, without which this award would not have been possible”.

2017 has already begun brightly at Monkey Puzzle with new nurseries either opening or about to in Cambridge, Kettering, Walderslade, West Norwood and Streatham and this award is a further boost for the network.

So, Arlind and all the wonderful staff at Bromley, congratulations and well done for all the hard work, we are very proud of you!

Nursery World Nursery Chain League Table 2016

It’s that time of year again when day nursery groups across the country anxiously wait for Nursery World to release the 2016 league table of the 25 largest nursery chains for in the UK.

Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries are pleased to announce that we have improved on last years 9th position rising to 7th. Our performance was based on 44 settings offering 3200 places.

Our growth strategy for 2017 and known new settings would suggest that a top 5 position is likely within a year or so subject to further market consolidation.

Monkey Puzzle’s expansion in 2016 has seen us open 13 new nurseries in Angel Islington, Aylesbury, Chadwell Heath, Edenbridge, Golders Green, Hartley Wintney, Mitcham, Sidcup, Stoke Newington, Streatham, Uxbridge, Ware and Worcester.

5 further settings are also due to open in Q1 of 2017.

The continued growth is a testament to the hard work carried out by those in Head Office, out in the field and of course our new franchisees.

Another Outstanding Inspection For Monkey Puzzle St Albans!

When you have an Ofsted inspection you certainly don’t want any monkeying around, well there certainly wasn’t any as our Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery St Albans has been praised as outstanding in all areas following their most recent inspection.

The St Albans Day Nursery in Ridgmont Road had their latest inspection at the end of last month as part of the new Ofsted inspection framework introduced in September.

After speaking with staff, parents and the children the Ofsted inspector summed up their findings by saying, “The nursery benefits from an extremely motivated management team, who are inspirational and supportive to staff… the children have remarkable learning experience and display very high levels of concentration.”

Not bad eh?

The report was welcomed by proud nursery owner Amanda Griffiths, saying, “It’s very rare to be awarded such a high accolade and I couldn’t be prouder of the nursery manager and the whole team. Our children are the most important part of everything and always come first, an ethos which I believe has helped to create this outstanding culture at the nursery.”

We are all very proud of Amanda, her management team, staff, the parents and of course the children for achieving this rating.

The full report is not currently available online, once Ofsted have updated we will publish the link here.
