Our Setting and the Re-Design

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.

As of Spring 2019, the Monkey Puzzle Nursery re-design is full steam ahead and the new nursery is due to open its doors in the coming months. Months of planning between builders, architects, and structural surveyors is culminating in a new and improved nursery with a better flow between rooms and a natural, muted, airy feel to it. Lovell Ozanne has been busy creating mood boards and concept drawings to show how our new nursery is going to look.

We are now accepting registrations for our September 2019 intake for the newly re-designed nursery.
