    The Average Rating of 4.865 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Bromley is calculated as follows: ( (439 Excellents x 5) + (61 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 503 Ratings = 4.865

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered child places. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered child places 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 Day Nursery Bromley is based on 26 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered child places ÷ 5). 26 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target Reached = 1

This is a very good and caring nursery. All the staff and management are pleasant and understanding of the children's need. They provide a warm welcome when you arrive and good feedback regarding the child's day at nursery. They also have parents evening and you can go to their website and access your child's learning journey through your own given password which is good for parents. My grandson has a lovely time at nursery and enjoys all the activities and has learnt such a lot like his numbers and alphabet.

Monkey Puzzle is an excellent nursery and I feel very fortunate that my two children attend Monkey Puzzle Bromley. The leadership, all the staff and the facilities are exceptional. As soon as you go into the nursery, you are met with a 'Good morning' with a beaming happy face, which sets a very good tone for my children and their whole experience at this nursery. The manager is exceptional and is so supportive and helpful if we have any concerns or worries. The staff are so nice and friendly and our children have become very attached to the nursery staff. Thank you Monkey Puzzle Bromley and keep up the excellent work.

My twins have been at Monkey Puzzle since they were 10 months old, they are now 2. I am completely happy and more than satisfied with the service that Monkey Puzzle provides. From the building and facility itself, the very caring staff all the way through to the management team who know all the children's names and are always there to offer prompt advice and support. Both my children have had ups and downs with being clingy, fussy eaters and naughty behaviour and throughout all these phases and challenges the staff at Monkey Puzzle have been re-assuring and proactive to get us through and always with a smile on their faces!
The element that I admire and works best for my two is the structure and visibility. They have a similar daily structure that I have with regards to meal times, naps etc. and the fact you can see everything they have been up to throughout the day online is very reassuring. I would highly recommend Monkey Puzzle to all friends and family (and I have).

My daughter started here in March 2016 and from her first day of settling in I knew I had made the correct choice. From that first day, the staff in the baby room have taken exceptional care of my daughter. With having to go back to work this made things a lot easier for me, knowing she is well looked after by the excellent staff in the baby room.
Every day is different for the children with lots of activities for them to do, with both indoor and outdoor play time.
Her development over the past year has been amazing to see. Each meal is nutritious and must be delicious as everything is always eaten, having an onsite chef who knows all the children's needs is a big bonus.
The online portal is great, I am able to track everything my daughter has done throughout the day, from playtimes, meal times to naps and also the occasional photo of her playing.
I would 100% recommend this nursery to anyone in the local area.

I am over the moon with this nursery. I was so anxious about sending my son to nursery and going back to work, but the staff here have been fantastic especially the management. they are always very professional and happy to spend some time to answer any of my questions. I would definitely recommend this nursery to all of my friends, I feel very sure about going off to work and leaving my son knowing he will get the care and attention he needs.

Such an amazing nursery. Staff are lovely and the manager is like a second mum to all the children. My daughter is very happy there and I just couldn't think of sending her anywhere else. As a Mother I can go to work with peace of mind, knowing she's safe, cared for and enjoying herself!

My son has attended Monkey Puzzle since September and he absolutely loves it. It's a struggle getting him to leave at the end of the day. All the staff and management are amazing, very caring and professional. I love the learning journal which allows you to log in online and see your child's development. The onsite chef is great and I know my son is getting fed lots of nutritious food. They encourage him to try different bits which he doesn't seem to like at home! Overall we are extremely happy with this nursery.

Since our little boy started at Monkey Puzzle Bromley in August 2016 he has come on leaps and bounds. Starting in the baby room he made a real connection with his key worker and within weeks we noticed an improvement in his speech and motor skills. He moved up to the toddler room in January and he is settling in really well. He isn't yet two but can recognise his primary colours. knows how to pronounce most animals and can count to 10 ( nearly). The team at Monkey Puzzle work really well with the parents and when we let them know what things we are doing a home to encourage our Son's development they carry this through into his nursery sessions.
Overall we are really pleased with Monkey Puzzle Bromley. The staff are lovely and always on hand to chat over any queries.

My daughter has improved significantly and has developed some level of confidence since coming to this nursery. She likes it at Monkey Puzzle and I would like to keep her there till graduation. The staff and management are polite and always willing to support my child. I find staff turn around high but will definitely recommend this nursery.

My son has been attending Monkey Puzzle since last April and we are delighted with his progress. He has just recently moved up to the toddler room and with the support of the staff this has been a seamless transition. All the staff are very caring and he goes to them each morning with a smile on his face. The staff are always willing to take the time to talk to you about your child and let you know of any developments or get an update from you about anything going on in your little ones life.
The online learning journal is also a great way of keeping informed of your child's progress and for piece of mind especially in those early days at nursery.
We are very happy with the nursery and intend to send our daughter there as well in the coming months.

My daughter has attended Monkey Puzzle for 9 months and in that time her development has come on so much. A lot of this I feel is down to the staff and environment at the nursery. The staff in the baby room are amazing and my daughter has good relationships with all the carers, they all treat my daughter as if she were their own. When dropping off or collecting her you can see that they are the same with every child in class.
When collecting her I am updated with all the activities she has done that day and what she has eaten.

The onsite chef provides good quality, fresh food for all the children. We can also track our daughter's progress throughout the day through the online learning journal.
If we do have concerns the nursery manager or the carers in the baby room are always available to take a call and to answer any questions.

The most important thing to me is seeing my daughter smiling and laughing when we drop her off. She loves it here.

My daughter started in the Pre-School room in September, and we're both really glad to have chosen Monkey Puzzle! She comes home each day telling me how much fun she has had, and I can really see the progress that she has made.
All the staff are professional and kind, with thoughtful activities planned for the children. They have an exciting calendar of events, with the Christmas Party a particular highlight for the children and parents too. Thank you all, we'll be sad to leave in the summer when she starts school!

I am the grandparent of an energetic 3-year-old who attends Monkey Puzzle in Bromley. It is a first class nursery.
From the manager, assistants and the chef they give every child 100% of their needs every day. My grandson loves his days there and I feel it will be a great stepping stone into school. Well done to everyone.

My son has been there since it opened, I have watched my baby turn into a clever and engaging little boy. The team are epic, everyone that's involved from manager to chef all show a genuine interest in not only the children but the parents too.
I cannot find fault in the energy and commitment the team show in their everyday roles and the packed annual calendar, the nursery commits to combining activities for the children but also the parents.
Since my son started in the nursery I have watched his eating habits, speaking, listening and interaction skills go from good to amazing. He is confident and assured in children and adults company. He faces everyday head on with a positive and fun attitude, living life to the max.

To know your children are in safe hands whilst your not with them is the best feeling in the world, this has given me the confidence to go back to work knowing that my little boy will receive the best care and attention in my absence, this is something I will never forget.

I feel the communication is sufficient. I can always email the nursery manager with any questions and get a lowdown on his day when I collect him from the staff in the baby room.

My daughter moved to this nursery at the beginning of December 2016 from another local nursery that did not work for us. I was nervous about moving her as she'd only just adjusted to the previous setting and routine (and is only 17months old) but the help, advice and support received from Monkey Puzzle and all the staff there has been invaluable. As a first time parents, new to the nursery routine, I feel so comforted knowing my daughter is well cared for during the day, in a warm, safe and fun environment. She's settling down quickly and comes home happy, playful and relaxed which says it all. The difference to how she was at the previous nursery is definitely noticeable, and only in a few weeks! From the comments that I've heard from other parents with either older children or those who have attended for longer, fills me with confidence that my daughter will enjoy it more and more, the longer she is there.

Monkey Puzzle Bromley is amazing, from the building itself, the equipment and the incredible staff and management team.
It was such a heart wrench to have to put my daughter in a nursery, but from day 1, I was put at ease, whilst my daughter was gradually, and at her own pace introduced to nursery life.
She has come on leaps and bounds whilst being there, her language, mathematics and the way she socially interacts with others, it is amazing to see her development.
The nursery is well equipped, has varied activities, and the children are fed freshly prepared and cooked meals.
I also have to mention how good the learning journal is! The parents can log in each day, to see what their child has been involved in, what and how much they've eaten, how they are developing, and also photos. It certainly helps you to feel at ease and involved.
All credit to the staff and the structure they have there. I am very grateful for all they have done for my daughter so far. Highly recommend.

We are so happy with this nursery. Our daughter settled in very quickly and is now attending pre-school which she absolutely loves. The staff are all amazing. They are professional and so good with the children.

It is a lovely caring setting and they do so many organised and interesting activities with the children. The food menus are great too.

The learning journal online is a brilliant tool to keep you connected with the nursery.

We couldn't be happier. Well done and keep up the great work!

We are very happy with our nursery. I was initially very nervous about leaving my one-year-old (11 months when she started) in an unfamiliar setting being cared by strangers. I didn't need to be. The staff are amazing; very caring and professional. My little one settled in quickly and the transition from home to full-time daycare was as painless as it can be. I feel confident leaving my daughter every day knowing that she is in good hands. My daughter has multiple allergies and the nursery staff went out of their way to cater for her and ensure a safe environment. Her development has been really good and she loves going to nursery. She has formed a close relationship with her key person (and other carers) which is lovely to see. Thank you and keep up the good work!

Our daughter has joined Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Bromley over a year ago and we are very grateful to all the staff (and especially baby room members) for making the transition process easy for us. Our child had had a lot of cuddles, attention and great care. It only took a week to adapt, ever since she loves going to nursery.
Throughout a year we've noticed huge improvements in our daughter's development, including language, mathematics, social and behaviour.
We receive daily updates on online portal as well as short summary at the end of every day, which is a great way to catch up with staff members.
Our daughter loves it here and made great friends with other children as well as staff members.
Let me also praise the food at Monkey Puzzle- their chef knows how to please little ones with healthy options!

We are very happy with the care our daughter receives at Monkey Puzzle nursery. All the staff are friendly, helpful and approachable. We receive detailed feedback about our daughters day upon collection. The parents evenings have been informative so we know how our daughter is progressing. The activities they provide are great and give the children opportunities to learn new things and make new friends. We like using the learning journal to read more and see pictures of some of the different activities. Delicious and nutritious lunch and dinner is provided every day which the children enjoy. The children love playing outside on the slide, scooters and trikes. Although it's not a huge outdoor area it is so important the children are provided with opportunities to play outside. We couldn't be happier with our choice of nursery!

We chose Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery because all the children and staff seemed so happy when we looked around. The nursery had such a nice vibe, which made me feel less guilty about leaving our little one each day. We have had an outstanding experience to date, you can see our son enjoys his time there and we get regular reports on his progress.

The staff have been very supportive. The chef goes over and above to make sure our son's meal is given the extra attention it needs because of his allergies, and the office staff are very reactive to our admin emails and phone calls.

My daughter has been attending Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery since March 2016. She was 6.5 months old when she started, so tiny and I was conflicted but had to return to work. The facilities are excellent, but what makes this particular franchise impeccable are the people behind it. From management, right the way through to the full-time chef - the staff are incredibly kind, professional and lovely to deal with. I had my first parent's evening last night and something that her key worker said to me stuck: "Our baby is growing up so fast". I realised that this is the overall attitude of the nursery. They partner with parents for the best possible outcome for your child. My daughter has been full-time since September and I drop her off every day knowing that she is loved, well cared for and receiving all that she requires for her age. I am kept abreast of developmental areas, daily updates on food, friends, and behaviour. The online journal system is a wonderful tool that I feel I would lost without. Highly recommended!

Since attending Monkey Puzzle at the beginning of the year my daughter has come on leaps and bounds. Her confidence has grown so much, her speech has developed wonderfully she now doesn't stop talking and I was once worried about her lack of words! Her eating habits have much improved she's more adventurous with what she tries now. Everyone at monkey puzzle gave me so much help and support with her toilet training. I've had a couple of behaviour problems at home with my daughter the manager gave me advice and was there to talk too and help put my mind at ease. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. My daughter is so excited to go to Monkey Puzzle and she comes out so happy and with lots of stories about all the fun stuff she has been learning. The updates I get from the nursery showing and telling me what she's been up to is great! I rave about her nursery to all my friends and family and would highly recommend to everyone!

My son started to attend the Preschool of the Monkey puzzle only 2 weeks ago, and I am so pleased with them. He has learned so much in only a matter of 2 weeks, its really impressive. He is talking and conversing a lot more, he has learned so much in a short amount of time. The staff are lovely and very very helpful in everything you need. Even though it seems a small place, it fits all the needs and they have divided very well and I think it does work the way they set it up. I am happy with them so far and I would really recommend the Nursery.

Both our sons (2 1/2 years and 9 months) attend Monkey Puzzle, Bromley. This nursery setting has exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Our eldest son has been in the setting for 8 months now and our youngest son for just one month. They are both very happy and we believe this is because of the friendly and relaxed environment at the setting. All the staff are really friendly and reassuring and have taken the effort to get to know both boys. Both boys have a key worker and we are kept up to date with daily records. It makes it so much easier leaving the boys knowing how happy they are.

The nursery has a chef, who cooks yummy and nutritional food. Our eldest son used to be fussy but the nursery has managed to introduce new foods that he would not eat at home. We have been consulted on menus and can always log into the boys' daily diaries to see what (and how much) they've eaten.

The nursery ensures plenty of fresh air in their routine, which we feel is important and we have noticed significant developments in our sons speech since joining the nursery.

In summary, we are extremely happy with Monkey Puzzle as a setting for our boys and would recommend them with confidence to anyone looking for a nursery setting in this area.

My daughter has a great time at Monkey Puzzle which means we are really happy with it. The children are always having a great time when I go in there. I love the fact that they get fresh air everyday because of the covered outdoor area. I also really like the online reporting system, meaning that you can log in to see what your child has been up to every week. I feel the nursery really helps with her overall development too. I love the fact that it isn't too big or crowded and everybody knows who each child is.

I love Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery for my children, the staff are lovely and although my children were understandably unsure at first the staff made them feel very secure and happy and now they love going there. They are learning new things every week and I think playing with other children helps them develop so much.

My son adores pre-school here. The nursery is well maintained and the staff are so friendly and approachable and very obviously care for each and every child who attends. The rooms are all colourful and stimulating with endless resources. There are so many activities to keep the little ones entertained and educated. The outdoor play zone is perfect for exploring in all weathers. Messy play is daily and my son adores getting covered in paint and "gloop". Things he doesn't often get a chance to do at home! He has become so much more outgoing and confident since starting here last year and that is down to the caring staff and the amount of fun he has here with his hew friends. I have no hesitation in recommending this setting.

My son started Monkey Puzzle in October. I was very anxious about leaving him but with the support and help from the staff it was a very easy transition. My son absolutely loves it here and I love seeing him smile as he walks through his classroom door. The nursery and staff are amazing and i am so pleased that I chose Monkey Puzzle for my son.

This is a third nursery for my little two years old son and I can definitely see that he had never been happier. Always wants to stay longer and have more fun there!
We moved to Bromley area few month ago, went straight to the Monkey Puzzle and never had a second thought. All members of staff are very caring and professional with children but also friendly and supporting with parents, which was very important for us. My little one has never been very chatty, but after just few month at this nursery he is much more confident in trying new sounds. He even sing songs which is an amazing progress in such a short time. And yes, the food! The food is great - always different, prepared on site. It always smells so delicious.

My daughter has been attending Monkey Puzzle since it opened and she couldn't be any happier. At her previous nursery she cried as she didn't want to attend; at Monkey Puzzle she cries as she doesn't want to leave!

Her personal development has come so far thanks to the amazing staff and her key worker. She can now write all her letters and knows how to spell a few words, her counting has improved a lot and she has a wider knowledge about the world and public holidays.

My daughter loves the food that's served and every time I pick her up she will tell me what she's had for breakfast, snack, lunch and dessert. There's a wide variety of meals and it's nice for the children to try something new and organic/healthy.

Overall I would definitely recommend Monkey Puzzle to everyone and I'm very impressed with what I have seen so far! X

I viewed a couple of nurseries to see which would be better to put my little girl in and I can honestly say monkey puzzle is the best one by far!
It is extremely clean.
The food is cooked on the day and is all fresh.
As well as being well balanced for the kids.
The staff are so energetic, fun and have positive relationships with the kids.
I see a massive difference in my little girl she tries to speak a lot more and I am so happy knowing all the sensory play she does!
The staff always make sure the kids have fresh air and are always getting involved with the kids during play.
There is nothing bad I could say .
They do activities and days for the parents to get involved.
Keep it up guys your all amazing the staff always go the extra if you are ever in need of help as well.

Since my son started at Monkey Puzzle in Bromley, his confidence has grown and continues to everyday. The team really do care and have been very supportive with his toilet training. His key workers are fantastic and do everything they can to help him progress. The food menu is varied and freshly made on site. They have a lovely play area and grow fruit/veg throughout the year- weather permitting. Bottom line is HE is happy so thank you!

When the time came for me to send my son to nursery I was extremely apprehensive. He had never before been in a childcare environment – having only previously been looked after by family members. I really needn’t have worried.

We visited Monkey Puzzle Bromley prior to it’s opening, yet despite there being no children to see in the setting, it was clear from the bright airy rooms, all-weather outdoor play area, caring professional staff who showed us around and abundance of toys and materials being delivered that this was somewhere I would feel comfortable leaving my child.

As mentioned previously, he had only been cared for my family members, and did not take kindly to being left at the nursery at first, however, all the staff were patient with him and me – reassuring us both - and within a few settling-in sessions (prior to him starting at the nursery properly) he was happy to be left. The speed at which he settles is testament to the kindness and professionalism of the staff – children are very good judges of character!

Since starting at Monkey Puzzle Bromley, I have seen him transform from a clingy shy toddler into an outgoing boy who seems to come home every day singing a new song or displaying a new skill. I’ve also seen him keen to try new foods – thanks to the onsite chef who takes the time and care to prepare nutritious food that I wouldn’t even think of trying him with at home.

But the most important thing to me is that he is very happy there, and that really is down the the staff and the time they take to get to know the children and provide them with a fun, stimulating environment where they want to spend time.

I visited a number of nurseries when I was returning to work in April but I felt immediately that Monkey Puzzle was "right" for my son. The rooms are lovely and bright, and so well-equipped. Everything is brand new and very high quality. My son has really thrived in the four months he has been going there and I am so impressed with what he is learning.

The staff are all very kind and caring, and at the same time very professional. I was quite sad when I first left my son there, but reassured by the fact that he very quickly bonded with his key worker. In fact when I asked him who his best friend was he named one of the staff!

The food is outstanding - healthy, tasty and varied and I am always told how much my son ate (normally "all of it"!). The children are often involved in food preparation and have made bread, pizza and gingerbread. These have been particular highlights for my son, as was a recent "people who help us" week where they were even allowed aboard a fire engine!

I think we have been very lucky, finding monkey puzzle when we did and growing with the nursery as it has grown. It is a high quality environment, staffed by capable, caring professionals who really connect with the children.

My son has been going to Monkey Puzzle since the beginning of May and I cannot tell you how proud and happy I am of how his development has come on since his time at Monkey Puzzle! I have watched him go from my small baby into a growing toddler, and I am extremely satisfied with the love and support he has from the team at Monkey Puzzle and I cannot thank them enough for all of their help and support with my son! I would highly recommend a place at Monkey Puzzle for any child! A beautiful setting surrounded by a hard working team! The facilities are great, everything in the rooms (books, toys, displays) are all connected with the EYFS development areas!

My little boy attends Monkey Puzzle in Bromley and is currently in the bright coloured and very well laid out toddler room. When he first started he found it hard to settle but the girls in the room were very accommodating towards us and helped reassure me that he would be fine. Now 5 months on and he is a confident and outgoing little boy and has come on leaps and bounds, he's now toilet training and is successfully grasping the concept thanks to the help and support of his key person. Definitely recommend it x

Monkey Puzzle Nursery in Bromley is genuinely wonderful. My son was one of the first babies to attend the nursery and we saw the property being built very quickly from an empty shell to the awesome nursery it is today.

It offers a fantastic environment for my son and his little friends to develop, in terms of: variation of activities, toys and book; well-defined rooms for different ages and abilities; a fabulous outside garden with climbing frames/obstacles, an area for planting and fences covered in pictures and wall art; integrating the babies and toddlers throughout the day at meal times and in the garden etc, so he is developing also from watching and playing with older children; amazing staff - all of who are so personable that I know their names, who do a great job of looking after the children, and who each evening are there ready with an update on how he has been throughout the day (from what he's eaten and how much, to number/types of nappy changes and any issues or fun things that has happened throughout his day); a fab chef who takes great care in providing yummy yet healthy and varying meals; pictures of the children throughout the building; the nursery also hold events for us including BBQs, photo days etc although we've been unlucky enough to be busy on those day :-(.

The nursery staff are also very thoughtful in terms of having all the children ready with all their belongings packed up ready to go at the end of the day. Similarly, I recently gave birth to my daughter (by c-section), and whilst I recovering the nursery staff have kindly been bringing my son to the gate each evening with his things as I was finding it difficult to lift him - another example of how they often go beyond the call of duty for us.

The nursery is great value for money providing everything for you, so he only needs to take his dummy, a spare pair of clothes and Woofy Dog, although his furry is sometimes forgotten (bad mummy).

I love Monkey Puzzle Nursery in Bromley and recommend everyone in need of childcare in the local area to try it out!

We moved to Bromley in January 2015 and by March I thought my son was ready for nursery. We are Brazilians and I must confess I was terrified to leave him somewhere every one speaks English. At 16 months it would be the first time that he would be with someone else which made the settling sessions a bit worse. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful and I cannot thank them enough. They supported me in every single concern, every single moment that I needed help with this so emotional and tense moment of the mother and son life.
To top it off, the place itself is amazing! The garden is great, the rooms and clean, organized and stimulating. It is a fantastic environment for babies and toddlers and so happy I chose them. They are like family for us now!

We moved to Bromley and were looking for a nursery having moved our first child from an Ofsted outstanding nursery in Hither Green. We have been with Monkey Puzzle since it opened and in that time, I have gotten to spend a lot of time settling in my first child in the pre-school room. I have genuinely been impressed with the professionalism, enthusiasm and most importantly kindness the staff have displayed towards the children. Knowing I was leaving both my girls in capable hands, it gave me the trust and confidence to leave my 12 month old in the baby room when returning to work after my maternity leave. Both children are really thriving there and, like the other children, are happy in the stimulating but most importantly happy environment.
