Our Setting

Monkey Puzzle was established in October 1999 by Caroline Blondel in a small premise in Vauvert, St Peter Port.

The addition of premises at Les Cotils occurred in November 2000 when the Guernsey Montessori closed down, and with the help of the existing parents Monkey Puzzle took over.

Monkey Puzzle soon outgrew the Nursery at Vauvert however it took until December 2006 to find suitable larger premises. A move into a temporary nursery at Kings Club took place in January 2007 whilst the new bespoke premises were under construction. The construction was completed a year later and the Nursery was able to move into their superb new premises in April 2008. Monkey Puzzle at Kings is set in the grounds of Kings Life Health and Leisure club in St Peter Port. We are registered for 62 children between the ages 3 months and 5 years daily and have 20 staff who are either key workers or holiday and sickness covers.

In 2018 the nursery suffered a truly devastating flood meaning that the staff and children had to move locations and find temporary accommodation. The flood has allowed for the Monkey Puzzle staff to look at how they worked within the environment and where they felt changes were needed. We are excited to open the new and improved Monkey Puzzle Nursery in 2019.

The Montessori is based in the beautiful tranquil grounds of Les Cotils centre overlooking the islands of Herm, Jethou, Sark and the truly beautiful harbour. The School caters for Children age 2 to 9 years and is registered with both the Education Department and Health and Social Services Young people services. Please see the Montessori section for further information on this location.
