Welcome to Monkey Puzzle Riverside

Monkey Puzzle Riverside is conveniently located just off the A45, close to the Billing Aquadrome. The nursery provides outstanding facilities for children aged from 3 months through to preschool age.

We have four dedicated Nursery and Preschool rooms for our various age ranges and each room reflects the seven areas of learning, as prescribed in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our facilities are designed with your child in mind, to be accessible to every child.

Our nursery fees are inclusive of freshly prepared breakfast, lunch, tea, snacks and drinks. Daily menus are carefully selected by a professional nutritionist to meet energy requirements of growing children.

We are part of an award-winning nursery group, offering high-quality childcare in our specially equipped nursery for children aged three months to five years old.

Adding to this, we tailor our care to suit your child’s age. We achieve this by placing children into the following age categories: babies aged three to eighteen months, tweenies aged 18 to 26 months,   toddlers aged 26 months to 36 months, and lastly preschool aged 36 months to five years. Due to our rooms being equipped especially for these ages, we are able to provide that home-from-home feel.

Hello and welcome to Monkey Puzzle Riverside Nursery and Preschool. Our team is dedicated to giving every child the best start in life by caring for and supporting them to play, learn and grow in a positive and stimulating environment.

We would love to welcome you and show you around our beautiful nursery setting so please get in touch.

Welcome to our baby room🐒❤️ Our baby room is from the ages of 3-18 months. This space has been created with the babies needs in mind with many areas to explore and develop through these first milestones. We work closely with our families to make sure the babies are having a home from home experience and our staff members are following each unique child’s routine.
