Cheeky Monkeys truly is a home away from home for my son (just turned 2) who has been attending this setting for just over a year now. This is a very rare find indeed. From day one he was very settled, comfortable, never any tears at drop off and has been impeccably looked after. The day he returned after the setting reopened post COVID crisis - it was like he had never been away (despite 4 months having passed) and he settled back in immediately. That evening returning home was the happiest I had seen him in many months. He was literally beaming to be back.

More than just childcare, this is the best combination of one-on-one attention, loving care, learning, social group elements with a variety of ages, outings and activities you can find for young children. The playroom is lovely, the garden big and welcoming and all the staff have hearts of gold. The weeks are often geared towards a theme (seasons of the year, animals, etc.) with all art/crafting, outings, cooking, role play, circle time, etc centred around this. For Halloween they served up a "spooky lunch" to rival most hotel children's menus and festivals such as Chinese New Year are explained, celebrated - they even had mini dumplings! The Babys Days app has a live feed which keeps you up to date with all going-ons throughout the day should you wish to check in - including regular photos and a daily note.

If you're looking for a place that has it all and a unique personal touch - Cheeky Monkeys is it. It's like a big close-knit family built on strong values. Don't hesitate to send your children here - they will flourish.

We absolutely adore cheeky monkeys! Karen and her team are incredible.
My daughter loves attending, we’ve never had the drop off tears. Such a nurturing environment where they play, learn and have all round excellent care.
Thank you so much!!

My 4 year old daughter has been going to Cheeky Monkeys since she was 7 months old. Here is her review:

“I like Karen’s and Lauren’s, when I go, it turns out a lovely day. Come here and play, we will have super fun. We also have to do numbers. We eat healthy foods. There are toys outside, like cars that we can drive with our feet. Karen and Lauren are so nice, you should come, you can have a little first day, and you can come. I love, love, love Karen and Lauren.”

My little boy has been attending Cheeky Monkey's for over a year now and I couldn't be happier with the care and attention he receives. Karen and her staff provide an extremely nurturing environment with plenty of stimulation and educational activities whilst also operating to high professional standards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other parents.

My Son absolutely loves going to Cheeky Monkeys! Before attending there he went to another childcare and would cry at every drop off now he goes in waving me off and smiling! I feel so relaxed knowing he is in good care and getting daily updates on the app means I know what he has been up to, eaten etc. I can’t recommend it enough!

My little boy has been attending Cheeky Monkeys since the age of 5 months, he is now 2 years old. He loves it, his day is so varied with fruit time, baking, crafts, outdoor time (dedicated area), lots of educational activities and his manners from attending the setting are impeccable. We really do love the home from home feel, and the 1:1 attention he gets that we don't feel he would be the same in a big nursery. He also gets to mix with children of different ages which we feel is so important in terms of his social skills.

My daughter started attending Cheeky Monkeys almost 2 years ago as a short-term solution before nursery, but we loved it so much she has stayed. She has such wonderful care and has developed enormously. A great sized setting to encourage socialising but also 1:1 attention when needed. I’d keep her here forever if she didn’t have to go to school!

My 2 1/2 year old boy has attended Cheeky Monkeys for the last 8 months. I was anxious at first as decided to move him from a full-time nursery setting. However it has been the best decision I have made and he has thrived in every way since. It is a very friendly and homely environment where both the parents and children are made very welcome. The children are always doing activities and going on outings. My little boy loves both Karen and Lauren.
I would happily recommend to anyone looking for childcare.
