We didn't enrol at a nursery, we became one of the family! The best start for our young ones on life's big adventure : ))
Our three children all went there- a fantastic school! Now aged 14,12 and 9 the introduction it gave them to learning is something that can never be taken away! The interest in learning that the school encouraged and the wonderful creative activities that took place daily are such that can be found no where else! Super caring staff that love their job and happy children everywhere!
Monkey Puzzle is a warm, welcoming and nurturing place full of happy, busy little people! The staff are caring and enthusiastic and always happy to discuss parents' concerns, however small. There are weekly online updates of what each class is up to and photographs so you can see what your littlies are doing when you're not there! We are very happy with our choice of pre-school.
They love the children, the children love them, they offer support to parents all of which together means that we can go out to work with an easier mind. Aside from that, the breadth of activities that they offer children is superb - my three year old can speak some French ! They are just an all round fantastic school and nursery and I couldn't manage without them.
Absolutely brilliant nursery, pre school and infant school where the children are encouraged to learn through play,are superbly looked after and cared for by staff who are engaged, interested and truly care about the individual children. I simply can't recommend Monkey Puzzle highly enough!
They have nurtured and supported my two children for over 5 years and have also provided fantastic to support to me and my husband as working parents. Their care and love for the children is obvious and they have given them so many opportunities to try new things from weekly cooking to French and yoga along with all the usual getting messy stuff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Monkey Puzzle to any parent.
Caroline and her team at Monkey Puzzle are superior in all that they do. My eldest daughter went there, my son is there now and my youngest Will be starting in September. I have recommended Monkey Puzzle to my friends in the past and would not hesitate to recommend them in the future, the effort and genuine caring for all the children is unquestionable. I will be really sad when my youngest leaves there in the future!!
I wouldn't entrust the care of my children to any other nursery, all of the staff at Monkey Puzzle are wonderful and I class them as life long friends. An amazing start to any child's education and highly recommended
Monkey puzzle is a brilliant nursery, with happy, caring, friendly staff. My baby loves it.
We are the great-parents of Lars Austin and we live inHolland. We are delighted that we can read what's going on at MP and that we can see the photo's of Lars. He is very happy at MP. And that is so good to see. Please go on this way. Kindly regards Rob and Wilma Nuhaan.
My 3 1/2 year old daughter currently attends MP, and she is so happy to go every morning. We cannot belive the change in her confidence amd what she has learnt in the 2 years. 100% recommended, we are hoping to obtain a place for our newborn daughter when she attains 2.
Simply the BEST nursery in the island! Both my children attend, I can leave them safe in the knowledge that they are happy and wonderfully looked after.
Both my son and daughter have attended Monkey Puzzle and loved it. The staff seem to really care about the children and they have a varied curriculum.
Monkey Puzzle was a wonderful environment in which to work. The friendly, almost family, atmosphere of working & learning was unsurpassed in previous jobs & schools in which I have worked & I loved it!
Having moved to Guernsey from London we were a bit apprehensive about how our daughter (who at that time was 2) was going to like the new nursery. She liked it straight away and hardly needed a settling in period. This is all thanks to the fantastic staff: they are warm, caring, professional and fun loving. Every day is different at Monkeypuzzle's and our daughter has gained a lot of confidence in her abilities. Most days she comes home with something she made at the nursery, whether it is a cookie, a painting, a calendar or a framed poem. Highly recommended.
Both of my children went to Monkey Puzzle - one at Les Cotils and one at Kings and I can't speak highly enough of both sites - from the nurturing at baby level (at Kings) to the structured learning to ease them into their school years their care and attention to detail is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
The Monkey Puzzle Staff are lovely. They were able to calm both myself and my son about leaving each other in the mornings and he has settled in so well there. This can only be because he feels comfortable in this relatively new setting, and with the warmth and care given by the staff. I could not recommend this nursery highly enough and really hope the staff realise how much they are 'loved' by the parents whose children go there.
From the moment we went to see MP as a suitable learning environment for our children we fell in love with it . Both my sons have loved MP since they began there . Attention to detail , ,treating each child as an individual and generally being a place of great love and learning . My eldest child left being able to read and write without even realising he had the skill . We will really miss that walk up and down the hill once September comes . Thank you Caroline and all your staff for the wonderful start our boys have had .
Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous - location, staff and facilities - arrive a stranger leave a friend - always accomodating and understanding - my youngest loved her time at the school and with her sister adored the fun of the holiday club - perfect for us with limited child minding options - now they are getting older they are going to sorely miss their holiday fun up at the Cotils I would highly recommend them always
Monkey Puzzle are loco parentis par excellence; they have helped my toddler become an independent, active, creative and sociable little boy.
The team at Monkey Puzzle are amazing.Caroline really does have the children's interests at heart, and not only does she understand the individual needs of each child, she understands the parents needs too. Both of my children looked forward to going every day and all team were part of our family.I cannot recommend Monkey Puzzle highly enough ,the only negative is your child has to leave at 7...both of mine wanted to stay !!
The staff at Monkey Puzzle have the ultimate balance of fun, professionalism and genuine care for the children in their charge. As a new, first time, mum I have always been reassured by their thoughtfulness and the fact that my daughter is always eager to hug them all!
My son could not have gone to a better place than Monkey Puzzle it is 1st class! He learnt a lot and it prepared him for big school with thanks to them it could not have gone more smoother. A big thanks to everyone at Monkey Puzzle
My daughter has been at Monkey Puzzle since she was 2 1/2. The teachers have guided her every step of the way and now she is 6 and in her final year as an upper prep. The staff have given her confidence and she has never once said she doesn't want to go to school. Her standard of education is excellent and she loves learning. I believe the first few years are so important and I couldn't ask for anymore. The school has a very caring and nurturing environment where the children are so happy.
A fantastic school run by teachers who have a real passion for what they do. The children are happy and at the end of the day that's what really matters. I'd thoroughly recommend Monkey Puzzle School.
