“We have recently moved to the area so the children had to move nurseries. They have both settled in brilliantly and really love all the staff. It’s a lovely friendly atmosphere and all the staff are warm and engaging. Nothing seems like too much trouble and I feel completely at ease leaving my babies in their care. This feeling is priceless when it comes to your children. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.” Nicola M (Mother of Child)
“My little girl started this nursery when she was 2 years old. I viewed several nurseries in the area but chose this one for its warm, busy atmosphere that I knew she would thrive in. To this day, my little one has never cried at the thought of going to nursery. I have never felt more reassured at work, knowing she is having the BEST day. The activities provided are to a good level of education for the age groups and there is plenty of group time. My little girl has developed so much, especially with her speech and confidence. The staff are warm and inviting in the toddler and pre-school rooms and more than happy to help with any queries. The manager is equally as lovely and always professional – seen to have good working relationships with her staff. Keep up the good work girls – you make us parents very happy, keep our children safe and educated with ample amounts of fun! Nothing beats listening to my daughters day at nursery. ”
Mel H (Mother of Child)
“From the first moment I met the staff at Monkey Puzzle, I felt completely confident my little boy would be fine. The very first morning I left him, it was so emotional and upsetting for us both. The staff were fantastic, gave me regular updates to set my mind at rest, reassured me and my baby boy and made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. Now my baby is almost 4. He loves his time at pre-school. He has really learnt some important life lessons that I’m sure being at home without the interaction of the staff and other children would have taken longer and would have been more difficult. He is thriving and I’m so proud of him. He is being set up to be a confident young man moving up to school which I have no doubt is greatly influenced by his key workers at pre-school. One word amazing!!! ” Hannah W (Mother of Child)
“A very warm and friendly nursery. Staff really care about your child! Staff are always very helpful and my daughter really loves it at Monkey Puzzle ” Katy B (Mother of Child)

“I would highly recommend this nursery. Lovely and very understanding staff. My girls love it here. Best nursery in this town by far.” Whitney O (Mother of Child)
“Both of my children are currently attending Monkey Puzzle Irthlingborough. My little girl started coming to Monkey Puzzle just after they opened, even though it took her a while to settle in, she now enjoys attending and even pretends she is there when playing at home. My little boy has been at Monkey Puzzle for about a year and enjoys being there. It is a lovely nursery with great staff who will try to help you out at short notice. Being at Monkey Puzzle has encouraged them to be who they are and has helped set my little girl up for school this coming year.” Deborah J (Mother of Child)
“My children always come home having enjoyed nursery and after school club. They take part in lots of different activities and enjoy well cooked meals. The staff in all areas are polite and welcoming. They are approachable and friendly. The nursery take security very seriously and I know I do not need to worry for my children’s safety. The holiday clubs are very useful and they offer clubs when the schools announce they are closed due to the weather which can be a life saver. Overall we are very happy with our choice of nursery.” Emma B (Mother of Child)
“My daughter absolutely loves attending the after school and holiday clubs run by Monkey Puzzle. They offer a wide range of fun activities during the holidays helping to take the guilt away from parents who have to work during this time. The staff are always helpful and responsive to requests, even stepping at the last minute in to cover childcare needs during school snow day closures. My daughter has built some lovely relationships with the staff who look after her and truly enjoys her time with them. She also loves the food cooked, always looking forward to her meal times there and I am happy that she is receiving a nutritious and balanced meal. The facilities are continually being improved and expanded and I feel that her environment is always very well maintained.” V M (Mother of Child)
“This is a wonderful nursery. My daughter loves going even when she’s not feeling well! My daughter has come on leaps and bounds, she loves the one on one, the fantastic sensory room.

Laura R (Mother of Child)
“A fantastic nursery that truly has your child at the forefront of their minds. The staff are extremely approachable and very friendly, taking time and effort to fill you in on your child’s day. The family feel and love that comes across from his nursery makes me know that my child is cared for in a loving environment and is developing, learning and growing whilst we are at work.
The security is extremely good, the fingerprint entry gives reassurance but also promotes an open door policy.
The communication is fabulous, regular emails and information about what is happening at the nursery and what your child’s room will be doing for the coming week.
Overall a fantastic nursery that my child loves going to, he constantly talks about the staff and children in a positive way. He is blossoming under their care and through their guidance.” Louise G (Mother of Child)

“Started off the evening by picking little Parker up and bringing home another star award. Finished off the evening with an outstanding parents evening – To be told he’s practically perfect achieving high and a real credit. They could not fault and speak high enough of him. I came away feeling so proud. What a star. Well done to Michelle Mobey, Natasha Corstin and all the team who guide him along the way at Monkey puzzle Irthlingborough. ” Chris Murphy
“My daughter has recently started, sending them to nursery is never an easy decision. From the minute we viewed the nursery we knew it was the right one. Cannot fault anyone, all staff are very welcoming and friendly and management are very approachable. Think you’re all a fantastic team but cannot thank Amy enough for her help and support with settling Olivia in. We have noticed a massive change to her and she certainly has a soft spot for you. Would not hesitate in recommending you guys. Best nursery experience we have ever had.” Kelly Stretton
“Lisa’s and Vicki are all great! They are very responsive and always take a genuine interest in everything to do with Luxmi which makes it easy every day to leave our baby with them. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fully express how grateful I am to them all for their caring and loving nature towards Luxmi from the day she started the nursery.
Thank you for your patience in dealing with mine and other parents queries etc. around the new Famly portal. I can imagine this has been rather challenging in trying and keep everyone happy, making sure parents are getting all they need whilst also carrying on with your day to day responsibilities. You’ve always responded with politeness to emails and never seem flustered or frustrated which is probably one of the reasons you are the Nursery Manager. At the end of each day when you are in the office, I love how you come out every so often to interact with parents and babies which I like to see. This shows you aren’t only an office based Manager but a Manager who likes to be involved and likes to be hands on with the children and babies where possible.” Krupa Patel
“I cannot recommend this nursery enough! Brilliant staff and welcoming nature.” Kathryn Scutt
