Both of my children attended Monkey Puzzle and it is without a doubt the best Nursery and Pre School that this island has to offer. Children are encouraged to grow in a warm and nurturing environment under the guidance of highly skilled staff and overseen by the wonderful Caroline. We are very blessed that our children had this amazing start in their lives.
Both my children went to Monkey Puzzle and they thrived! The staff are so warm & friendly & my children looked forward to going & loved the outside area! My children are now 10 & 12 & still talk with fondest about Monkey Puzzle! I can not recommend it highly enough!
Monkey puzzle is a friendly, happy and safe learning environment for Guernsey children. Both of my daughters have been/are at Monkey puzzle and we all have fond memories of our ongoing association with this wonderful organization.
Callum and Jamie always loved going to Monkey Puzzle ! The kind friendly approach always makes for a family feel which we really appreciated ! We always recommend Monkey Puzzle to our friends and family and wouldn't have had our boys going anywhere else! Thank you Caroline and your fabulous team :) x

Monkey Puzzle is a warm and caring learning environment. The staff are fantastic and always tell me what my child has done. The weekly blogs give updates and photos of what the children have done. I cannot recommend Monkey Puzzle enough!

Monkey Puzzle is a lovely place for the children to go to, it has lovely staff, always very welcoming, ready to put your mind at rest with any worries. The children are always happy to see the teachers and their friends. They have a great playground where the children love playing on their bikes and running around. Well recommended!

Lovely staff, very friendly and caring. My children really enjoyed their time there and have lovely memories.
Working at Monkey Puzzle is never not GREAT, I always want to go to work.You see i'm not just a preschool teacher- I may have to be an astronaut or a palaeontologist, a winter olympian or a Jedi master with a light sabre that makes mark making fun. We really have THE BEST time, the children come in with a smile and during the day the smile turns to laughter and chatting turns to questions and playing becomes investigating and exploring becomes learning and we all learn something because as staff we learn from the children everyday and we take that knowledge and we work with it. Monkey Puzzle gives us the best environment to nurture that knowledge and that is why I work at Monkey Puzzle and why working here is completely GREAT
The Monkey Puzzle team are the most honest enthusiastic fun team and I trusted my 2 children with them from 6 weeks old. Caroline,Christine,and the team love all of our children so much and that shines through. They offer a childcare service as though they were our own family so very special people and make parenting and managing our jobs a breeze. These guys deserve to win
My three children loved going to Monkey Puzzle because the staff are cheerful, friendly and genuinely love children. They learnt a lot about themselves, each other and the world around them and were ready and confident to start school when they left. As a family we made friendships with other families and the staff which last to this day. Once a Monkey Puzzler, always a Monkey Puzzler!
Fantastic, family orientated school. My daughter attended for 7 years the school has helped her grow into a beautiful, confident lady. Would recommend and have done so to anyone. Thank you Monkey Puzzle
Having been part of Monkey Puzzle for 12 years now I have enjoyed working with a great team of people. Two great sites and lovely group of people who are more like family. Have seen children arrive as babies and leaving as confident children. Having made so many new friends and its great to see these families come back to say hi. Monkey Puzzle where learning is fun
Monkey Puzzle gave my son the most incredible beginning in his educational career. The staff are friendly and whilst your child attends you become part of the family. My son left in 2012 and still talks about his teachers and how lovely they were!! Monkey Puzzle and all the staff that work there are fantastic!! I am honoured to have been involved with such an incredible school !!
Setting is absolutely beautiful,the hot lunches for the children every day are great but above all Caroline and her team are just fantastic! Nothing is ever too much trouble and we really feel like our son is safe and cared for, he absolutely loves his days at monkey puzzle. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.
My little boy started at Monkey Puzzle aged 16 weeks and from the very first day I felt confident and happy leaving him with the staff. They are fantastic with the children. As a first time Mum the support and advice given by the baby room staff was invaluable and I always felt like he was being cared for by friends rather than it being just someone's job. He thrived and loved going. Even at such a young age I was amazed by the range of activities they did with him. He has now moved up to a new group and continues to be happy there. Most times I come to collect him he doesn't want to leave!! It is a caring, comfortable and extremely happy environment, he loves it and do do we. The girls who look after him do a fantastic job and he loves them. They teach him so much in a fun way and the activities he does I could never re-create at home. He has benefitted so much from being at nursery we are so glad we were lucky enough to get a place for him. I can't recommend it highly enough, Caroline and her team are wonderful. Thank you Monkey Puzzle for taking such good care of my little boy
All three of my children have been to Monkey Puzzle, I can't speak more highly of the place or the staff. They really do know how to run a successful caring nursery& school, that in my experience makes every child and parent feel like part of their family. Caroline is an absolute star and has bent over backwards to make my children's time at Monkey Puzzle so enriched and happy. My older two, loved their time spent at Les Cotils with their fabulous teachers, Christine, Cedi, Shelley, Miss Guna and Miss Becci and now my youngest is really enjoying his time at Kings with Jodie and Liz. I am often telling friends how great Monkey Puzzle is and how happy I am knowing my children are in such a caring and wonderful environment. They most definitely get my vote as a local and loved company! Nadia Newton
We love Monkey Puzzle for so many reasons, We know our little monkey is in safe hands whilst we are at work. We receive full support from the whole team from a quick question or any advice, nothing is too much. They are all so beautiful and genuinely have fun whilst teaching the children, I just wish I could go too!!
Last summer our third child finished monkey puzzle. We were all so sad to leave the place after ten years of going down there on a daily basis. It is a haven of calmness and happiness, which is some achievement with so many young children there. All of the staff are marvelous without exception and reflect Caroline's friendly authoritative presence. She and all of the other teachers that taught our children are now loved and trusted friends. At all times we felt completely secure in the knowledge that our children were safe, happy and developing and learning in their own unique way. What a truly wonderful place it is and I can think of no other place more deserving of award and recognition for what it does.
I love Monkey Puzzle and my daughter does too. The staff are forever professional yet gorgeously friendly to all the children and the parents at all times. My daughter loves learning and everyday they do something different. Gymnastics, French, swimming, free play, outside play as well as learning about current events, e.g. Olympics, Valentines, Chinese New Year etc. I could not recommend the nursery and more. It is without a doubt, ,The best of Guernsey'!
