This nursery is just good as gold. My daughter started when she was eighteen months and I can see huge progress in all areas of her development, she is now twenty eight months now. When she started, we didn’t know much about this particular nursery but we’ve followed our instincts and went for it with no regret at all. The staff are very lovely, friendly and helpful, including the manager, they always take the extra mile in supporting the kids and parents with any needs or concerns they might have. The food is very healthy and I am happy that it is freshly made everyday as the nursery has a chef. The teachers are all amazing, especially my daughter’s key person, we are really grateful for everything they are teaching her. At home, we follow the Montessori education method and this nursery, even if it doesn’t say in the brochure, is very, very close to this educational type from a wide range of activities. Activities such as messy play, shelf work arts and the child friendly set-up to social skills and emotions. Totally recommend it.

My son is almost two and a half and started just before his second birthday. He does three full days a week. It took a couple of weeks to settle in but ever since he has been very happy at Monkey Puzzle. He’s grown in confidence in that time and his language has developed rapidly. He is very well attached to his key worker and the other staff, which is a big relief to me as a parent. The nursery management are very professional and organised as well as caring. The nursery is clean and tidy and the meals are varied. Monkey Puzzle uses an app to give parents updates – meals, sleeps, nappy changes etc. It’s lovely to see what he’s been up to.
Before nursery, my son was always cuddled to sleep. I was concerned that he would be sad about taking his nap without me. He got the hang of it really quickly and has been fine ever since. Thanks.
My four year old attended a few ad-hoc sessions during the summer holidays and really enjoyed it. He often asks whether he can go back.
Thank you, Monkey Puzzle Maidenhead.

Our little one loves going to Monkey Puzzle Maidenhead. Staff have been very professional and friendly and there are lots of activities taking place. The children can spend a lot of time in the outside garden and there have been many arts and crafts activities. We love that the nursery also has some special themed weeks like the visit to the seaside. When our little one was in the baby group, we liked the fact there was a separate room for the children to nap in. Some of the staff have been there since our little one started and even though she moved up a group, she still interacts and says hello to them.

Since joining the nursery, my daughter has developed in so many ways. She is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going into nursery every day.
We definitely recommend.

Being an Indian parent, I was a bit hesitant and over possessive for my child and was not sure how things go in a nursery. With a confused mind, I enrolled my son to Monkey Puzzle Maidenhead.
My son was very naughty and not someone who will sit at a place for more than 3 mins. 5 months down the line, I must say that the results are remarkable. He has improved so much that we realized that it was a very positive move to get him into the nursery. All the staff members at nursery take care of him, motivate him and encourage him to learn new things. He has developed his table manners and social manners.
Recently, he has started learning French and was amused to see my child doing so well. Thanks to the manager for suggesting the right thing for my child in a timely manner so that we can do our bits from our side. My son really enjoys going to nursery and it’s a great thing to see him grow and improve each passing day. My big thanks to the entire staff of Monkey Puzzle Maidenhead.

We signed up our son to the nursery when it was newly open. This made us slightly anxious, but apart from a few teething problems which you would expect from a new place, all has been fine. The staff looking after the children are really lovely, responsible and accommodating (our son is absolutely in love with one of the ladies!). The food is balanced and varied, we are being informed with great detail as to what our son ate every day. The management is accommodating and very open to conversation about any concerns. Most importantly our son really seems to enjoy going there which is nice to see. I recommend the nursery without hesitation.

“I have found all staff attentive and caring towards both myself and my son. I feel confident that I have made the right choice, particularly with the move to a new area. My son’s transition has been very well supported with the staff selecting activities and toys which encourage him to feel safe and secure. Many Thanks.”

My daughter started at Monkey Puzzle, Maidenhead when she was 10 months old. The initial month was hard for both of us, as she really struggled to settle in. During this time, the staff went the extra mile with her needs, giving her loads of cuddles and making her feel comfortable in her new environment. She absolutely loves going to the nursery and it’s her second home now! They constantly plan fun activities for the kids. The Management are great and they really care about the children. From a practical perspective, the location and 7.30am-6.30pm opening timings are fantastic for commuting parents. On the whole, I would highly recommend Monkey Puzzle!

Great Nursery, my child loves her key worker and staff in her department and I leave for work knowing she is being well looked after. The food is cooked fresh daily so I know she is getting a varied and nutritional diet. They are now helping her to take her first steps and encourage her which is great.
