“Having started Monkey Puzzle in Jan my son is really enjoying his three day a week at pre-school. The settling in process was very smooth and the staff very accommodating” GF

“The best thing about nursery is the kind, caring and enthusiastic staff members who always have time to chat to you about your child and their progress. “JS

“The staff at Monkey Puzzle are wonderful- they go out of their way to make our son feel happy and safe. He talks about his room staff like they are his friends, and he has so much fun that he often doesn’t want to come home! We are so happy with the care that he receives every day- a big ‘thank you’ to all of you!” OG 

“My son has been at Monkey Puzzle for 2 years now – almost since it opened – & he absolutely adores it!  The staff are all lovely, kind & friendly & get to know the children individually, catering the many activities to their needs & interests.  The creativity that goes into learning about different themes, & the environments provided are perfect for exploration & getting messy – ideal for toddlers & pre-schoolers starting to learn about the world!   Cherry really cares about the children’s happiness & is constantly striving to create an environment where they will thrive by regularly updating both the rooms inside & the fantastic outside space.  She is also totally aware that nursery is there to help working parents & the longer hours plus her understanding approach to parents is refreshing vs other nursery settings.  The nursery & pre-school is a very safe & happy space & I am so thankful that Cherry decided to open a nursery in our village.  We will be very sad to leave this summer as my son moves up to Oakwood.  Thank you all! Xx” WH

“I am grateful for everything that Monkey Puzzle Hartley Wintney, and especially her key worker, has done for my cub. It’s not her last day yet but when it is I’m sure there will be tears. Thank you to all the staff that have helped her along the way to be the princess she is!!!” KS

“Thank you so much for taking great care of my son whilst at nursery for the last couple of years! He’s learnt so much, made good friends and always enjoys going to nursery. It’s been lovely to be able to leave him in such a happy safe environment and I can’t thank all the lovely staff enough for everything they’ve done! He will definitely miss you all but we hope to see you around the village/events/parties etc. Thanks again” CS

“I wanted to say a big thank you for everything that you are doing at the nursery. Our little girl absolutely loves her days with you (and never wants to leave!)

Moving nursery was a big decision, but we are so glad that we made the decision to leave her previous nursery and come to you. The experience could not be more different. Our daughter is engaged every single day, she is learning well through play, her language skills have come on brilliantly, and I know how strong her relationships are particularly with Sam and Kirsty, she even asks to see them at the weekends!

From a parent’s perspective, obviously the fact that she is safe and happy is of utmost importance, but having the regular updates on her day using the Eylog app is really beneficial, and the assessment on her learning stages was interesting too.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team and to let you know that I genuinely believe you’d be hard pushed to find a nursery where the children would have more fun, engagement and learning opportunities” BF&MF

“I just want to say thank you for how well you have helped my son settle into the Monkey Puzzle. I’m so pleased at how happy he is with you.
I love the variety of activities he gets to try. He loves being able to play outside so much and this week all he can talk about are the chickens that he got to meet!
Thank you.” TD

“The staff at Monkey Puzzle have been so brilliant and patient helping my 2 year old daughter settle at nursery. The children take part in such a wide range of activities and my daughter always comes home full of news about the new things she has enjoyed doing there. Lovely outside space too.” LC

“My eldest son loves his time at nursery. The staff are so warm and kind to him, he has settled in really well and made lots of lovely friends. We would recommended this nursery to all the parents in the area.” DT

“My son loves this place, and his development has come on leaps and bounds since he started attending. He loves the art and craft activities, story time, and running around the playground. The staff are fantastic, and he’s made some good friends. I highly recommend this nursery.” AF

“My son has been at Monkey Puzzle Hartley Wintney since he was 1 since it opened in January 2016. I have been really happy with the nursery, he has come on leaps and bounds in his social side and language. Before he spoke he was singing (humming) songs like Humpty Dumpty and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with all the hand movements and this was something I had not taught him and was delighted how he had learnt this. My son takes important daily medication that the team have never missed and been diligent in the awkward way he has to have it!

The staff are kind and compassionate, which for me is the most important factor than hours of paperwork that has to be done these days in nurseries. It is a newer nursery which might worry some, but with that is freshness, passion, modern facilities and an eagerness to always improve the nursery. I know my son gets lots of cuddles, care kindness and this is the most important thing while I am at work.

All in all, we really love it !” JP

“I am so grateful to Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery for helping my son to settle so quickly. The care and attention given to him is brilliant and he absolutely loves all the staff. He is always so happy when he comes home and I know that he really enjoys being there.” JA-B
