Reviews

9.8 Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.827)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 32 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.827 for Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath is calculated as follows: ( (320 Excellents x 5) + (58 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 382 Ratings = 4.827

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath is based on 32 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 15.4 positive Reviews (77 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 32 Reviews ÷ 15.4 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

A friend recommended Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath to us, they had two children go through the Nursery and were very happy. I must say we are glad we followed their advice, the place is great...our fussy little eater suddenly loves new foods and he is coming on bundles there, he loves the staff in his room and has made loads of friends and he enjoys the outdoor space and loved when he went on a trip to a local farm not long ago, he talked about it for days.

My little boy started going to Monkey Puzzle in September when I returned to work following a career break prior to that he was always with me or my husband. We did worry that he wouldn't settle in very well as he was quite clingy but to our great surprise, he loved it there, from the bright surroundings to the friendly staff and various fun activities they have on offer he can't get enough of the place. We are so happy how his confidence has grown since being there, the place is warm and inviting but also feels secure & safe.

My son was 20 months when he started and has settled in extremely well all the team in his room are very lovely and caring.
I was very worried when my son started due to bad experience previously in another nursery with my eldest child. But Monkey Puzzle has given me no concerns and I often watch my son happily playing, it's nice and opened planned and my son seems very happy. They regularly update his online profile and he is learning well.

My little girl and I love this place! Extremely friendly, caring and very well educated staff, very safe, cosy, stimulating and clean environment. Very helpful management and policies in place, super fun and varied activities so no time for boredom. Yummy, healthy, and generous menu!
I can't stop being amazed how much self-confidence my daughter's gained since joining the nursery.
My little one can't wait for her "nursery days" and keeps talking about her friends and the nursery at home with great excitement. For me, that's the best proof that she feels happy and safe there.

I sometimes pick my grandson up from nursery and am always impressed that the staff remember me but if it's a new staff member they quite rightly make me wait until someone has verified who I am and that I am authorised to collect him. Children all look to be happy and interacting with the staff well and my grandson often tells me about the fun things he has done with his friends at nursery.

My little boy has attended Monkey Puzzle for 2 years and loves it there. He has developed strong relationships with his key workers and his speech has come on in leaps and bounds. The staff take the time to learn what each child likes and the trips out from the nursery are great. The premises are always clean and interesting for the children. I have no hesitation about sending my little girl when I return to work shortly.

I love looking at their online system and when I pick them up, I love the art work they come home with. I highly recommend Monkey Puzzle. You are an amazing nursery!

The management are always approachable as are the owners. The mini chefs thing they do with the children is brilliant. Keep up the good work Monkey Puzzle.

Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath is a fantastic nursery. Currently my three year old attends but my son also attended from opening until he started school and my youngest child will be starting in January.
There are so many positive things to say but I think the best thing I can say is that I am fully confident and happy to leave my children there. I know that they look after and nurture my children and the owners take personal responsibility for the children in their care.
Food is of an excellent standard (my son saying the chef is the best one he has ever known still having left over a year ago), the activities are educational but fun, the environment is bright and frequently refreshed and updated, the staff friendly, engaged and preparing children for school is a focus.
I cannot praise the nursery and the owners and manager enough and would highly recommend to anyone.
My daughter loves attending and always goes in happily!

My daughter loves attending this nursery. Staff are caring, excellent with the children and provide a brilliant learning experience covering everything from learning their ABC's to different cultures, languages and day trips. The meals are balanced with the odd treat and the children also receive two hot meals a day and my little girl eats really well. The overall environment is bright, spacious, clean and there are lots of different activities take place daily to encourage development and interaction.
Overall I am very happy with the nursery and will be really sad when my little one has to go to school!!

My daughter has been attending Monkey Puzzle for almost 2 years now and I cannot praise this nursery enough. The staff are absolutely fantastic and genuinely care about all of the children. I feel completely at ease leaving my daughter when I go off to work knowing that she's in safe hands - she loves it so much it's a struggle getting her to leave at the end of the day!

After my Son graduated from Monkey puzzle last year, my daughter is now in the baby room. She settled in straight away and is excited to attend nursery. The staff are all fantastic and show a genuine care for the children they look after. I would not consider any other nursery in the area.

My daughter attends the baby room of Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath. Being a new mum, I was worried about leaving her at day care. However, the staff are fantastic. She attended a weeks trial period to get used to the nursery. And now attends full time. She has settled in well and I am able to see what she gets up to on a daily basis on her online learning journal. The nursery is lovely and the staff are all very friendly. I am very happy to leave her there knowing that she is in safe hands.

My son started at Monkey Puzzle at 7 months old and I honestly couldn't feel more happy and relaxed when he is at this lovely nursery. He has made really good bonds with the ladies in the baby room and he always has a big smile on his face when they greet him. He was a fussy eater at home which worried me thinking he wouldn't eat at nursery but he seems to love the food, he has managed to try lots of different meals and definitely prefers it to mummy's cooking!! The management staff are also brilliant and always get back to me with any question or query. I love that he comes home with paint on his toes and sand in his socks because I know that he is doing all different activities and experiencing things that we don't always have time to do at home with him. Always recommend this nursery to family and friends and will continue to!! keep up the brilliant work guys :)

My child has been attending Monkey Puzzle since January 2015 when he was 10 months old. At first, I was worried and felt guilty about leaving him. However, the staff were absolutely amazing. He settled in so well. He was happy every time I dropped him and also when I picked him up. They passionately took care of his every need and he bonded really well with his key worker.
He is now 2 and a half years old and still thrives there. His development is great, they have always given him the care, loving and attention that he needs. We have been so happy that we increased his days from 2 days to 4 days a week. All credit goes to the nursery as he is developing to be a sociable, polite and thriving little boy. The online daily updates are fantastic as it shows how much he learns and how he enjoys his day.
I cannot recommend the nursery enough, as it is such an important part of my child's life. We are grateful that we can trust Monkey Puzzle as he's in safe hands and extremely happy there.

My youngest daughter has been at Monkey Puzzle since I returned to work in August 2016. She is currently in the baby room and seems really happy there. The staff are friendly and more importantly, kind and affectionate towards my little girl.

The baby room seems a lovely comfortable space and I'm a big fan of the separate sleep room a lot of other nurseries don't seem to have.

Best thing of all is the online system you can log on to so see if they have uploaded any updates on your child, with accompanying photo/video. Makes me feel so much more involved in her day.

All in all, excellent nursery.

My daughter started at the nursery in June 2016 aged 1 and as any parent knows, it's the hardest thing to trust and leave your child. I was so lucky to have found Monkey Puzzle as their number one priority is the children they look after and so much time and care is taken to ensure a smooth easing in process.

I was so impressed as the staff knew after only 5 sessions that my daughter was not herself and by the end of the day she had developed a temperature which was why she was not herself. Everything that you hope a nursery would do for a child is covered here such as security, care, learning and so much more. I would recommend this nursery highly.

My son has been at the nursery since he was 1 year old and is currently 3 years old. The staff are warm and friendly but most importantly are approachable. You really feel they care for your child and my son has thrived there. I've seen him develop skills I never knew he had and I love the fact that I get an email of his progress and log in through the learning journal to see pictures and feedback of his journey. I can even add my own comments. The only issue I have is parking as the site is small and there are limited spaces available.

Absolutely fantastic nursery. The staff are amazing and a credit to the nursery. They really care about the children and put a lot into looking after them and teaching them. My daughter loves her key worker and often talks about her and the other staff at home. The facilities are excellent. The food is also excellent. My daughter loves nursery and everything about it. 10/10 for everything.

My son has been attending Monkey Puzzle Nursery since he was 13 months old. I visited many nurseries and chose this one because I loved the feel of it when I walked around. The staff here genuinely care for my son and they also have very few staff changes which means my son is not having to get used to new people all the time. He is always excited to go to nursery which makes me feel brilliant as I always feel guilty about having to work. The staff are engaging and we have an online system which gives me daily updates of his progress which includes pictures and sometimes video evidence too. Would definitely recommend this nursery to any and all nervous parents.

My youngest son is currently at the nursery in the Upper Pre-school since joining in the baby room in 2013.

My eldest son also attended the nursery for a year before starting reception.

I have been very happy with the nursery and the staff.

I feel my boys needs have been met and they have been well cared for.

If I have ever had any concerns however small the management team have listened and acted upon them.

The team have been as flexible as possible over the years to meet my childcare needs which I am incredibly grateful for.

The chef is fabulous and even cooks with the children!

I would not hesitate to recommend the nursery and have done so many times. In fact, my niece also attends now following my recommendation.

I have experienced other settings in the area prior to Monkey Puzzle and have no doubt that this is indeed the best place for my son(s).

My son started Monkey Puzzle when he was about 14 months old. He started in the baby room, then went into Tweenies and then Mini Preschool.
My son absolutely loved it and I completely trusted all the members of staff to look after and care for my son as I would.
The girls who helped look after my son were all amazing!
Thank you to all the members of staff at Monkey Puzzle.

My son attended Monkey Puzzle full-time from Sep 2013 when it opened to Sep 2016 when he left for Reception. From Day 1 he has been happy to go. The staff are outstanding; there have been some changes but transitions have been smoothly handled and each key worker has been good. My son formed deep bonds with all his carers.

There is a good balance of fun and learning activities. Extra activities are arranged like the weekly Theatre Street and Tot Stars classes and visits from the fire brigade, police and the company that brought in creepy crawlies.
The food is excellent and far healthier than school dinners. The chefs teach the older children to cook. There is also a 'Fruit of the Month' session to expose the children to new fruits like pomegranate.

They keep Learning Journals online which means I can log in to see what my son has been doing. On his last day, his key worker asked him who he would miss the most and he said 'All of you because you are all so nice.' Sums it up really.

It's been a wonderful experience for my daughter at Monkey Puzzle Bexleyheath and she misses going there now as she's joined school.
The staff have always been exemplary in all aspects and my daughter has been fond of them. I especially commend the learning journals that the nursery have introduced as it gives parents a chance to see and understand the activities that their children do all day.
Delightful and secure place.

Well the time has come for my baby boy to leave this amazing nursery and start his journey at big school, which he is more than ready for thanks to everyone at Monkey Puzzle!! He's learnt so much during he's 2 and a half years there and made some lovely friendships and strong bonds with the staff!
The setting is lovely with lots of different activities for the children to use, he often spoke about 'the new toys' he played with!! I cannot fault the nursery, the staff or the owners in any way, they all truly care about every child there!
The variety to their lunch and tea menu is also great, It was nice to know my son was eating homemade food full of goodness instead of junk! Thank you Monkey Puzzle for being amazing, we are sad to leave you!!

My two boys joined the nursery 10 months ago and I have seen them develop leaps and bounds. What really attracted me to the nursery was its bright and inviting interior, well-organised rooms, sensory area in the baby room and long opening hours (which is ideal for us city workers). They have a good food menu with nutritious foods which is brilliant as the kids have learnt to eat new fruits. In the morning, there are always planned activities set up and we can see their development through these activities through carer feedback which demonstrates the child's new skills on an online parent portal. This is highly impressive as both kids are given daily feedback- not something I have experienced in other nurseries. Their phased induction was very helpful as it eased both kids into nursery very well and the staff were brilliant at helping the kids adjust to milestones e.g. toilet training, changing sleep schedules and moving across rooms. Safeguarding is a priority too.

Our Daughter has been in the nursery over a year and we are very happy with the service provided. I have always had peace of mind when leaving her in the nursery as it is very secure and safe. I love the open rooms as I do not have to worry about my child being taken into an unsupervised area, as well as the freedom to run around. The rooms are very clean and well kept. The owner works there most of the time, he is always willing to help us when we need an extra day, he is a very kind and helpful person. The whole team is very friendly and professional.
We just want to thank all the staff for looking after our daughter :)

My 1 year old son went to the monkey puzzle 4 month ago and I am pleased to see he is having fun and growing up every day. As a first time mum, I am extremely nervous to leave my child with someone else, and I still am as you can imagine! But with monkey puzzle, I am impressed with their security system and the way they really care about the safety of each child there. They even call me every time when they would like to go for a short trip outside, and I do appreciate that and i think that's what a good nursery should do really, especially with nervous mums like me :) Apart from that, my boy seems to love the food there and would finish off his plate most of the days- that's a big relief for me as I am a bad cook and it's such a joy to know your little one is eating well every day. Overall, can't fault my son's nursery really.
