Other News

We have really enjoyed the lovely summer months so far, with plenty of activities at the nursery. Our team here and the children have been really busy with our garden, creating a mini-Morrisons and an ice cream parlour, creating our own little camp site and more. Many of our activities can be viewed on our facebook page.

We have also been working closely with Julie Firth from head office, who joined Monkey Puzzle from her role as an Ofsted inspector. We recently received our mock inspection and received excellent feedback, so well done to the team and keep up the good work.

Our team continue to work really hard to make positive changes to the nursery to ensure the environment remains fun and stimulating for the children. We always love to receive your feedback on your opinion of the nursery, either directly to the team or via our suggestion box in the nursery hallway. A big thank you to all the parents who recently responded to our questionnaire in the pre-school providing some fantastic feedback.

Finally, a mention to all the children who are now leaving us to go to big school. The graduation day here at Monkey Puzzle was fantastic, with the children in their cap and gowns, very special. We wish all of you good luck and don’t forget to come back and visit us in the future!

If you would like more details about any of the events, or any other details about the nursery, please call our manager, Donna, on 01789 414 220.

The following are just some of the comments from Ofsted:

Partnerships with parents and other professionals involved in the children’s lives ensure that individual needs are continually met.”

Children enjoy the large play spaces available to them and benefit from the good organisation of the environment indoors and outdoors

Babies receive one to one attention when having their bottles and staff ensure babies sit comfortably on their knee, are relaxed with lots of eye contact taking place making it a lovely experience.

Monkey Puzzle Stratford-upon-Avon is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and expects all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
