Reviews

9.9 Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Irthlingborough has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.877)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Irthlingborough is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 50 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Irthlingborough in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 50 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 4.877 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Irthlingborough is calculated as follows: ( (525 Excellents x 5) + (65 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 594 Ratings = 4.877

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Irthlingborough is based on 50 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 21.8 positive Reviews (109 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 50 Reviews ÷ 21.8 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.

Great nursery, friendly staff, great setting, plenty of parking, both my children attend and are very happy and settled here. My daughter has multiple allergies and they can't do enough to accommodate her. The family app is great, you can keep up to date with what they are doing.

My son started school last September, he has had a great start from Monkey Puzzle in Irthlingborough. He is way ahead of all his school friends. He is able to write his name, dress and undress himself with ease. He is a happy and confident boy and has made lots of friends at school. The staff here are very friendly and focused on the children in their care. The nursery manager is approachable, knowledgeable and accommodating. The nursery was a pleasant experience for my family.

Excellent child-focused environment!! My daughter loves her days at Monkey Puzzle. She really enjoys all the activities that are always varied daily and the outdoor play area. She has made some lovely little friendships with the other children and always likes to tell me that she has had lots of fun which is very reassuring to know that she has enjoyed her day while I have been at work. I Highly recommend the nursery and have found all the staff to be very helpful. They have even encouraged my little fussy eater to join in at meal times!

Brilliant staff, my girls love it here if there is ever a problem and your not happy they sort it straight away, both my girls when they first started were very upset with me leaving but with the help and support from the nursery staff, they have settled in nicely! I couldn't ask for a better bunch of people to look after my babies.

A fantastic nursery that truly has your child at the forefront of their minds. The staff are extremely approachable and very friendly, taking time and effort to fill you in on your child's day. The family feel and love that comes across from his nursery makes me know that my child is cared for in a loving environment and is developing, learning and growing whilst we are at work.
The security is extremely good, the fingerprint entry gives reassurance but also promotes an open door policy.
The communication is fabulous, regular emails and information about what is happening at the nursery and what your child's room will be doing for the coming week.
Overall a fantastic nursery that my child loves going to, he constantly talks about the staff and children in a positive way. He is blossoming under their care and through their guidance.

My niece goes to Monkey Puzzle and she loves it, she can't wait to come in and play with her new friends and ever since she's been going to nursery, her language development has improved a lot, she's coming out with new words nearly every day. I'm so happy she goes to this nursery and I will definitely recommend it to anyone who asks.

Before starting with Monkey Puzzle I looked around 2 others locally. By far I found Monkey Puzzle to have the nicest, brightest family friendly atmosphere as well as being competitively priced. The staff always have smiles on their faces and you can tell they love their jobs. My daughter started at this nursery when she was 9 months old and is now 22 months old. Since joining, she's really come out of her shell and absolutely loves going. There are never any arguments or sadness about having to go to nursery!

My little boy is very settled in the nursery. He looks forward to going and doesn't want to leave at the end of the day.
The staff treat him like I would and I am very happy to leave him there whilst I work.
If I have any questions, staff respond very well and I get a full update on what he has done each day.
The staff actively take an interest in all our lives not just my little boy.
They do a variety of activities each day and all are encouraged to participate. My little one has come on leaps and bounds and is showing new skills all the time.

Overall, very very pleased and will and have recommended to others.

My son loves attending this nursery and it is reflected beautifully in his behaviour when he comes home. The staff are engaging and run regular activities to stimulate his busy little brain. He is encouraged to build healthy relationships with his peers and parents are kept up to date with weekly planned activities via email and an online journal where you can see his progress.
The facilities are well kept and cleaned to a high standard.
I would highly recommend this nursery.

My little boy has attended Monkey Puzzle Irthlingborough for the last 5 months and he absolutely loves it there. Very friendly staff who always give him a big cheery welcome in the morning. I also feel, as a parent that I can talk to the staff about any concerns freely. During Christmas time, my son had an accident which meant he was absent from nursery for 4 weeks, the staff kept in contact with us and he absolutely couldn't wait to get back which I think speaks volumes. He has made brilliant progress and I think the nursery does a brilliant job helping the children to get ready for school. I can't fault Monkey Puzzle Irthlingborough at all and I will absolutely be sending my second son there when the time comes.

My child has attended the nursery for 10 months, she is well settled and always looks like she has had a great day when we pick her up. There is always different activities that she has completed each day which keeps her stimulated. The nursery is great at introducing varied foods to my child's diet.
It's great that I can I drop my child off with just her rucksack with spare clothes and not have to worry about nappies or wipes for the day as they are all included in the upfront monthly costs.
Staff are always friendly and welcoming and will always make the effort to talk to the children when coming into nursery grounds.

I moved both of my daughters here over a year ago from our village pre-school and haven't looked back. My eldest daughter attended for over 6 months before going to school in September and my younger daughter still attends weekly sessions. The nursery has a warm and friending atmosphere from the moment you step through the door. The staff are a real credit to the nursery and within hours of my daughters starting at the nursery they had already worked out their personalities and used that to get the best out of them. I would definitely recommend Monkey Puzzle.

My son has had a few occasions where he has been sick at daycare and we have had to collect him and keep him home for two following days, however, I do not always feel this has been proportionate as on one particular occasion, he has been sick due to being fed soon after having something to eat at home and so was simply over-fed. As such we have had to have him home and pay for days he was not there, not due to illness, but simply because he had been sick. I think it would be reasonable to consider the circumstances more on each case, especially when this causes inconvenience to the parents and added financial cost.
Also, there have been many occasions where I have been exiting the car park and have seen people purposefully waiting to be allowed in. In my opinion, if they do not know the passcode they should not be coming in, otherwise it defeats the purpose of the barrier in the first place. It might be beneficial to have two separate barriers to prevent this otherwise, I'm very happy.

Michelle Mobey, Owner at Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Irthlingborough responded to this review on 20 Jan 2017:

Our Day Nursery is situated in a Business Center, which also has a popular family Dentist and a Day Center for Individuals with Autism. The car park does have a barrier gate, which is shared with the other Businesses, as well as the people who use these other services, over which we have no control. We have the fantastic added security of internal and external CCTV and bio-metric entry/ exit systems.

Sadly Sickness and/ or diarrhoea is highly contagious, especially in young children. At any childcare provider or school, it is standard policy to request children displaying these symptoms to not attend for 48 hours after the last occurrence. We always assess sickness cases on an individual basis especially in our Under 2's as we are aware they can be prone to re-flux and/ or milk 'sick', which we wouldn't request they be collected or not attend for.

My boys have only just joined this nursery but they have settled really well. Both them and I felt welcome from the moment we arrived and the staff have been very kind and caring throughout our time there. They have a real interest in both the development and happiness of the children they work with and always keep the parents informed. I have been very happy so far.

I would recommend this nursery to any parent 100%.

Both of my children attend this nursery (one in the baby room and one in the toddler room) and feel that the care they receive from the staff at the nursery is second to none. They love coming and they have fun and learn at the same time.

The staff make you feel so welcomed and update you on your child's progress every day.

This is a fabulous nursery and anyone looking to put their child into here will have no regrets.

Couldn't ask for a better nursery. Staff are so lovely and my child always receives the best care. He absolutely loves going to nursery and always has lots of activities to keep him busy. His speech and general learning has greatly improved since joining Monkey Puzzle.

I cannot recommend this nursery enough. I am a shift worker with odd date changes and the nursery are very flexible with this. The staff are very friendly and always on hand to help. The children are always smiling and happy. My child loves it there and I like taking him there!

Very good at looking after the children and they have great carers looking after the children within the school. The sensory room is amazing with all the interactive features and activities in the room. The rooms set out are fabulous and the activities are great. I also really enjoy going in the school holidays as they have lots of school outings.

I was so happy with the pre-school here. My little boy grew in confidence, had so many activities to keep him happy and get him ready for school, they have a lovely garden and a big field to play in, which is fantastic as my little guy loves to be outside. The staff are lovely and helpful and the manager is brilliant. Thank you so much.

Unfortunately for me, monkey puzzle wasn't around when I needed childcare for my daughter but thankfully for my niece's it is.
Fantastic setting with excellent staff. As a parent or carer, you are always kept fully informed of what your child has been doing each time they attend. The children are always having lots of fun whilst learning at the same time.

Our little baby girl has been going to his nursery for nearly a year now and we all love it!
The messy play is her favorite and she has so much fun doing this and really enjoys it, and learns at the same time.
All the staff are amazingly nice and genuinely care for all the little babies which is very apparent.
We have recommended this nursery to friends and will continue in doing so.

Really great Nursery. Both my grandchildren have attended the nursery, the youngest is now in preschool. Great bunch of ladies who really do an amazing job of looking after the kids. Looks like great fun, food, experiences and love the wide open space outside the nursery... can Grandparents attend too?

Both my children attend the setting. The Principal is fantastic, being a qualified teacher. Both my girls always have good fun playing with their friends and the staff. There is a nice feel and atmosphere in the nursery, with the staff always being willing to help and really care for all the children.

My Daughter uses the holiday club at Monkey Puzzle. She cant wait for the school holidays to go and play with her friends, and always comes home with loads of craft creations. The staff are really friendly and seem to know all the children. Can't recommend it enough!

Fantastic nursery, my little girl has gone there for over a year and wouldn't pick anywhere else. Staff are lovely and there are lots of activities to do. They always work with your child to develop skills like talking and feeding.

Both my Grandchildren have attended the nusery, the staff are amazing. The care, love, nurturing is evident throughout the nursery. The daily activities are stimulating and enjoyed by both staff and children. The warmth and love is evident throughout. It is evident that all children there are happy to be there, the laughter, play and smiles say it all. What an amazing space for them to be in.

My daughter who is 3 attends this nursery and she has come out of her shell so much and became more confident and outgoing. I will be sending my 2-year-old daughter to this nursery when the time comes.
I have had bad experiences with a day nursery that my twins went to who are now 14 and was a bit wary of putting my daughter into a day nursery but the staff are all friendly and very family orientated and excellent with my daughter.
I always recommend Monkey Puzzle to family and friends.
I couldn't ask for a well managed and friendly staff for my daughter to be around

Our daughter attends full time. What a great place! She's been to other childcare places over time but our daughter really misses not going to Monkey Puzzle, and you can tell. They hold events all year and take care of our daughter. When picking up we get a daily debrief, any issues, any bumps etc are all recorded and acknowledged.

Food is great, even got offered some when I was there waiting for my daughter to finish her lunch. Yum yum!!

This is a fabulous nursery with qualified, caring and gifted people. I have no reservations in stating my belief that children of all ages will be happy and safe at the nursery. Lots of activities and an approach focused around the child. Having a qualified specialist teacher as part of the team is an added bonus.
