Our son has been at monkey puzzle Eltham since their opening last year. He adores the ladies who look after him, from wiping away his tears when he falls over to helping him to write his name. They have really taken care of our boy and i am very thankful i know he is safe and he enjoys his time here daily. He comes home well fed and usually a bit messy which to me means his has had a fabulous day learning new things. I am certain we will be sending a happy well developed young man off to school this year. Thank you to all who have helped our son along the way.

My daughter goes to Monkey Puzzle Eltham and I have to say they are a fantastic nursery and would highly recommend.
All the staff are extremely helpful and nothing is to much trouble.
My daughter absolutely loves Monkey Puzzle, the nursery is wonderfully equipped with great toys, she loves the messy play, arts and crafts. The rooms are bright, spacious, clean and lots of room for the children to play.
My daughter is a fussy eater but always enjoys her meals and eats them all too which is great. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone thinking of putting their children into childcare. My daughter loves coming here, which makes my life so much easier when I have to leave her to go to work which is never an easy thing as a parent, the girls make the transition run very smoothly when dropping her off and nine times out of ten she never wants to leave at home time.
A very happy mummy and daughter :)

My son was 3 when he started nursery and he was quite attached to myself and his nanny, hence I was quite concerned that going to the nursery will be a very difficult transition for him. However, the staff was very understanding and flexible and made the whole process smoother. They agreed on a few settling sessions, as well as an initial home visit which really helped him settling in quicker. After less than a week, he went there smiling and came home happy.
He speaks really nicely about all the staff there, as well as the chef who according to him cooks them yummy food. Nursery helped him a lot becoming more sociable and making friends, both there and outside nursery.
Another important aspect for us was the cleanliness and we were very happy to see that they do value this as well and even after more than a year from opening, the nursery is kept very clean and tidy.
I would definitely recommend them and I trust that with time they will not only keep up the great work, but will improve and develop further.

Our childcare plans fell through just before I was due to return to work, and Monkey Puzzle Eltham was just about to open, so we were able to secure a place for our daughter at short notice. One year later, I am confident that this was the best thing that could have happened to us - we love the nursery! From settling my daughter in as a 1 year old in the baby room, it feels like she's become part of the family and she's really happy there. The staff are so lovely and take a really flexible & accommodating approach. Our daughter is always happy to go in the mornings and we've seen big strides in her development over the year that she's been there. Would definitely recommend!
