Other News

As we head into the winter months, we have already enjoyed many activities this year. As we approach the end of the year, the remainder of the year remains busy. We have just celebrated 3 years since we opened the nursery in Stratford-upon-Avon and have many more activities planned in 2013 such as our parents evening, Children in Need fund raising and a visit from Julie Fulton (a local author of children’s books). Of course the winter months means Christmas is also just around the corner and this is such a fantastic time for the children. We are really looking forward to our Christmas parties and of course the carol service which is another opportunity for the children to shine in front of their proud parents.

The team at Monkey Puzzle would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their support during the year so far, this is very much appreciated.

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

Ofsted Inspection

The Ofsted inspection team last visited us recently and we were delighted to receive an overall “Good” rating. The Ofsted definition of a “Good” grading is that the ’provision is strong’. We are proud and delighted that Ofsted have recognised the expertise and dedication of our team, and the effectiveness of our nursery. The nursery team takes great pleasure looking after local children and we look forward to seeing many more smiling faces at the nursery in the future.

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.
