Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley provides superb quality childcare for children aged three months to five years. Part of the award-winning Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery group, it offers an exceptional learning environment for young minds in amazing facilities, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.

The nursery is located in the newly renovated (2017) Old Surgery building, offering safe enclosed free flow play areas, private car park for safe drop-off and collection, fully equipped dedicated rooms, a sleep and sensory room, the latest security and CCTV and so much more.

Coming in 2018 is the addition of a new 'little explorers' outdoor wooded area where the children can engage with the natural environment and learn fantastic outdoor skills thanks to the Nursery Manager's experience of working in a forest school in Finland.

All meals are freshly prepared on-site every day using nutritious healthy ingredients - the nursery ensures full-day children are offered 100 per cent of their 5-a-day in fresh fruit and vegetables. The staff are highly qualified and experienced in Early Years education and childcare, with the majority being graduates or qualified to at least Level 3 in Childcare Studies.

Reviews

8.4 Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.383)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 5 for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley is calculated as follows: ( (23 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.383 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.133

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

The staff are so friendly and willing to help with anything they can, and the nursery itself is packed full of activities. The decor is bright and stimulating, but also has calm area's too. It's just fantastic and I'd recommend it to anybody.

Monkey Puzzle in Otley has been fantastic for my child. The building itself it's stunning, it's fresh and inviting for not just children but parents too. The management team are fantastic, very friendly and approachable.

After my last experience, I was uneasy about putting my child another nursery. However, after speaking to the manager on an open day, I felt at ease immediately and felt respected and that my opinion mattered. The outdoor area is fantastic and very inviting for children and parents. I would highly recommend Monkey Puzzle to any of my friends or family.
