Part of the award-winning Monkey Puzzle group, it offers a beautiful environment for tender young minds. From the stimulation of your baby's senses, to physical and emotional development, right up to Pre-School literacy, numeracy, creativity and social skills, the children are nurtured to enjoy their early years to the full in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, whilst growing into inquisitive confident young people ready for their first day at primary school.

Located in the newly renovated (2017) Old Surgery building, the nursery offers enclosed freeflow play areas, fully equipped dedicated rooms, a sleep and sensory room, CCTV and private car park. Coming soon is the nursery's 'little explorers' woodland garden, for children to learn unique outdoor skills in the natural environment, thanks to the Nursery Manager's forest school experience in Finland.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 3 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 3.7 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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: ( (35 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 35 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 3.7 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.200

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

Reviewer Connection to Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley

I am so glad I chose to send my daughter to Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Otley! All of the staff are so lovely; they made my return to work an easy transition for both of us. Nothing is too much to ask and they go above and beyond to accommodate your child to make them feel at ease. The open-plan, bright setting is fun and stimulating and enables all of the children to do so many different things in the same room; all of the activities they do are exciting and educational. You can also be sure your child will be eating well while they are there, the menu is amazing! I would highly recommend.

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.
