My name is Sheena Patel. I am a dedicated mother, qualified physiotherapist and the owner of Monkey Puzzle Streatham Common and Monkey Puzzle West Norwood.

Becoming a mum ten years ago made me reconsider my career aspirations. I watched my children develop and grow and my experience was eye-opening, igniting my passion for early years learning. When looking for a nursery, I always felt they could do more and provide better opportunities for my children. This motivated me to open my own nursery, aiming to create a special place where families could get the same inspirational childcare that I wanted for my children.

Young children thrive on care and attention. They give so much love back when you are part of this positive experience. I promise you Streatham Common will give this to your children like they were our own. We want you to have the peace of mind that your little ones will be given everything they need to learn, develop and thrive. My nursery is the place I would have wanted my children to learn and grow in. I know that if you come in and visit, you will think the same. Please get in contact with us. We would love to welcome you into our family.

My two daughters loved their time at this nursery. The staff are wonderful and caring, and each day there are fun activities and focused play to engage the children. The manager Melissa is excellent and the owner is closely involved in the operations to make sure high standards are maintained. I would highly recommend.

Out of the many nurseries that my children have attended, Monkey Puzzle in West Norwood is a gem. I have to say this is the best nursery that my daughter has attended. I feel that this is not just a day care nursery, but an environment where my daughter will actually learn and thrive.
