    Monkey Puzzle West Kensington is simply fantastic. My daughter has been attending since September, she’s now 2. The staff are amazing, the level of care for the children is exceptional. It has a really warm feeling and I have always felt super comfortable leaving my daughter. The staff are friendly and patient and even staff from other rooms know my daughter by name. I would highly recommend Monkey Puzzle West Kensington.

    Our two-year-old son has been attending Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery West Kensington for two months. The staff are professional, friendly, caring and keen to help the toddlers learn and have fun. Each week, activities are planned that relate to current events, such as Chinese New Year or book day recently. Our son has really bonded with the staff and looks forward to attending nursery.

    This is a wonderful nursery. My baby started there at just eight months old and he was the youngest in the group at the time. He was very well looked after from day one. You get the feeling that the staff really care and love their job. They have a great app for communicating and also keep track of what your child is up to throughout the day. I pick up a very happy baby at the end of each day.

    This nursery has excellent staff that not only look for the safety of our children but they get involved with them in a very loving way. They ensure our children’s education with a planned weekly program and with a variety of activities. The nursery has more than enough resources and is also very clean and tidy.

    My daughter is three years old now. She has been going to Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery West Kensington since she was one and a half years old. She started from baby room, then she was in toddler and now she is in preschool. It took some time for her to get used to it but now she adores Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery West Kensington and so do we as her parents. Every day at home, even on weekends she pretends she is at the nursery, she is a teacher and all toys and even us are her Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery West Kensington friends. This is so funny but at the same time very interesting because we can see exactly what is happening when our daughter is there, which games they play and what staff say. She learns a lot from there and we are very happy we chose this place for our daughter.

    I have seen a very good improvement since the new manager arrived. The app is constantly updated with information about the kids and the activities they do daily, this is very helpful and useful for us parents to be aware of what our kids do. The room leader in the babies room is extremely nice and she cares a lot about the kids. Also, the practitioners in the toddler rooms are very nice. In the babies rooms, a lot of fun activities are done every day and my son is learning a lot and very much enjoys his days.

    I would like to notice that it was the first nursery of my daughter in UK, and she is very happy here, accordingly, we are too. The manager and staff are very kind. The whole team are very polite, we feel very comfortable to leave our child with them. I would like to thank all of them for their work!

    The team at Monkey Puzzle are really friendly and helpful. Our daughter was only 8 months when she started and we were new parents so we were a bit nervous. But they were very helpful from the beginning. She has now been there a few months and loves it in there. She is developing so quickly and is clearly very fond of the nursery staff.

    Super impressed with this nursery. We choose this nursery for our first child who was 14 months at the time which was super nerve-racking and an unfamiliar new experience for us but they have been fantastic from day 1. Our daughter is in the baby room and she absolutely loves coming here, she loves the nursery practitioners in her room, they are all brilliant with her. Well-fed every day, fantastic activities carefully planned out, outdoor play and she is allowed to explore independently too. The level of teaching and learning here is great and she has come in leaps and bounds with communication and overall development. The app also makes us feel so included as parents, with the end of the week updates, pictures, daily routine documented including nappy changes, food eaten, sleep duration. Also, we regularly get an in-depth weekly update on her development which is personalised for her and shows the dedication to each child. Brilliant nursery!

    My daughter has been at this nursery for around a year now and is so happy there! The staff and new management are extremely supportive and have done a great job with exploring ways to increase her development and I believe she’s really thriving now! Everyone is kind and fellow parents are also friendly. The nursery has an app to update you on your child’s development and what they’ve done throughout the day and it includes pictures, which is an awesome pick me up if you ever have a tough day at work.

    Firstly, I would 100% recommend Monkey Puzzle nursery to any parent. They are super attentive, caring and most importantly loving towards the children. The staff are amazing and professional, they take care of the children like their own – which is what makes this nursery stand out!

    Having my child in a clean and safe environment is important and they provide this from the moment you step in. As a parent I feel confident in taking my child to nursery, nothing beats that feeling.

    This nursery is very amazing.
    My baby is well fed and looked after.
    The staff are very professional and observes every single detail of what my child is doing every time he’s there.

    This is my son’s first nursery, and Monkey Puzzle did an amazing job settling him in. Recently, we experienced a sewage flood at home, and the nursery went the extra mile to care for my child. They offered additional days, which were extremely helpful during these stressful times. The app they use to update parents about the child’s activity is really good. Many thanks to the manager and the team for such great care.

    Overall, experience is satisfactory. The staff is now stable post-high churn-back in early 2020. A good learning framework in place since November 2021, against which progress is monitored. Dietary requirements are catered. Parent/children/staff events introduced within Covid-19 guidance.
    Improvements – ongoing communication, more vegetarian options.

    A very well run and organised nursery. Originally chose them because they were more flexible than other local nurseries, but have since found them to also be very inclusive, diverse and professional.
    Since attending, my daughter has improved noticably in her language of comprehension skills.
    I rate the learning schedule they employ and communication with parents.

    Management are so good at Monkey Puzzle. They’re so on it and really good with updates. The amount of activities and learning is great too. My son has come on leaps and bounds since joining the nursery and always being pushed to get the help my son needs. It says a lot when your child is excited to return somewhere!

    My son has been going to Monkey Puzzle West Kensington since he was 14 months (he’s now 26 months). We’ve found the nursery to be excellent. The staff are wonderful and management accommodating and easily contactable. It was a bit rocky to start for my son as he’d only ever been at home with me but he loves it now and has thrived immensely. He is becoming a confident kid not just at home but with other children in social situations. I feel at ease knowing he is in a safe and loving environment and well looked after. Thanks to all at Monkey Puzzle West Ken.

    We love Monkey Puzzle! The staff are kind, caring, and attentive. The facilities are great, and the setting is always so clean. Everything is included, even down to meals for our little one who has an intolerance. Meals are always nutritious and delicious, she eats better at ‘Monkey School’ than at home! The staff are really good at keeping parents updated daily and weekly, we love getting photos through on the app. Cannot recommend Monkey Puzzle West Kensington enough!

    Our daughter started here as a toddler when we moved to the area and is now in preschool. The creativity of the staff and amount of activities they do always amazes me. It has contributed lots to her learning and imagination. The food is varied and somehow they manage to get her to eat things she would never try at home, which is fantastic. The hours are great for working parents and was the reason we looked at Monkey Puzzle in the first place.

    Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery West Kensington is a fantastic nursery. Our daughter has been going there since she was 10 months old, and she’s now 3 and a half. It has helped her development immensely and she loves going there every day. The staff are all very kind and loving and attentive. They play so many different games and do different activities every day, as well as dancing, singing and counting in different languages. The setting itself is really great, very spacious, with two playgrounds. The food is freshly cooked every day. Our daughter loves the food actually! And it’s great to follow the updates on the app as to how her day is going. Our older son also attended Monkey Puzzle from the baby room all the way until he started primary school. Overall we’re really happy with our choice of nursery and would highly recommend.
