Congratulations to Thomas for winning our fantastic gingerbread house, handmade by our Preps Class.

We managed to raise a further £33.60 for Purple Pinkie Polio Day.

That’s another 168 vaccines for the children to protect them against Polio. Thank you to all who purchased raffle tickets. Our Preps Class have adored the entire thing!

Since Monkey Puzzle began, we have had a fantastic response and have never looked back. There is nothing as re-assuring as hearing what parents think about our school. Here are a few recent comments. 

‘Just wanted to say how pleased we are with our child’s two years experience at Monkey Puzzle. We think the school and all the staff are fantastic.’

‘You have all been amazing. We will miss you very much!’

‘It seems like yesterday when you said to me ‘Come and have a look’. From the moment you gave us a personal tour, we both fell in love with Monkey Puzzle. The stunning setting, your amazing dedicated staff and of course the whole ethos of your school. Our boys have both loved Monkey Puzzle and have grown in independence and confidence during their time with you.’

‘That dreadful time has arrived and our daughter will be leaving you all. We would like to thank you and your wonderful staff for giving us parents ‘peace of mind’ and giving our daughter such a great start in her early years.’

‘How can I possibly thank you enough for caring for my children for the past six years. Thank you seems so inadequate for everything Monkey Puzzle has given us. We were determined to give our children the best and that we discovered was Monkey Puzzle.’

‘I just wanted to let you know how we feel about our past seven years at Monkey Puzzle. We cannot begin to thank you enough for the help and support you have given our boys and us as parents. You have supported us as a family so well. There are so many fantastic people working at Monkey Puzzle, we will miss the walk down the hill each morning! Our heartfelt thanks’
