We offer your children the chance to learn and play in calming surroundings which have been specifically designed to create a loving, homely and safe environment for your child.
We have dedicated nursery spaces for the different age ranges, including mobile and non-mobile babies. Each room reflects the seven areas of learning as prescribed in the Early Years Foundation Stage and is designed to be accessible to every child.
What Makes us Unique?
Our aim (link to Ethos page) is to provide enchanting and enabling environments for children to learn in their own way. We have five themes to our ethos, which underpin everything that we do at the nursery.
Active Childhoods – Monkey Puzzle West Norwood is a bit different from other nurseries in that while we of course focus on the academic development of our children, we also place a huge amount of importance on MOVEMENT. (link to the article above)
Creative Minds – We are passionate about inspiring creativity through learning. With a plethora of activities designed to spark creative minds, our specialist equipment accommodates everything from Music, Dance, Art & Crafts, Drama and more!
Eating Healthy – We believe it is absolutely essential for the children in our care to develop positive eating habits early on in their lives. it is important that we encourage children to be adventurous with their food, and to understand about different foods and their nutritional values.
Evolving with Time – At our nursery we recognise the importance of supporting children’s exploration of technology as a learning tool and as a common aspect of the modern world.
Loving the Planet – We have a strong focus on being environmentally friendly, providing your child with a solid understanding of the world, and encouraging them to have respect for our planet.
Throughout all of our activities we also work closely with our parents to promote positive behaviour in our children. Our ethos and values are simple and orientated around helping all children from any background to join in our own little wonderful community here at Monkey Puzzle West Norwood.
