At Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries, our children begin their preschool journey at the age of three. Our staff are fully trained and qualified to support their education all the way to them 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 prepare your children for school by carefully weaving the framework into your child’s play each and every day.
As a stepping stone towards their school experience, your child will be one of eight children assigned to an educator each day. This will be their key person who will be their advocate and your main point of contact for your child’s care and development.
Preschool children experience rooms that enable holistic play, where the children themselves create fun scenarios and activities that likely require the writing of lists, the creation of props, assigning of roles, counting and estimating, with stacks of talking, lots of movement and outside fun as well.
The sounds of preschool children learning through play are magical! Our educators help to facilitate this play. They are always fully engaged with the children, asking questions, prompting reflection and supporting problem-solving. We want to encourage our children to be curious, inquisitive learners who want to explore the world around them.
