Each room at Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Weybridge is individually appointed to reflect the particular requirements of each age group from three months to five years old. Children are moved between rooms based on individual development rather than age.
Baby / Teenies Room
Babies (3-20 months approximately) and Teenies (20-30 months approximately) benefit from a bright and open plan room with dedicated areas for non-mobile children. Staff cater for their individual requirements. Babies are supplied with their own bedding and the temperature is constantly monitored to ensure babies are comfortable at all times. Each baby is encouraged to develop through creative and sensory activities. We have a cosy book area and an exciting multi-sensory play area. There is a separate sleep room to guarantee your baby a quiet and peaceful rest.
Teenies enjoy activities structured around their changing interests. We operate a 1:3 ratio in the Baby/Teenies Room.
All children receive a hot nutritious meal at lunch time and our dedicated staff team sit with the children to encourage communication and social interaction.
Over 2’s – Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers
Both floors are large, bright and spacious. The Toddler area is for children aged between 30-60 months and has been designed with sensory and creative areas to develop and stimulate the children’s inquisitive minds. Developing their numeracy and literacy skills is facilitated within specific areas. The room benefits from a creative area for messy play, a home corner, a reading corner and a free play area to allow them to participate in a well-structured day, which helps prepare the pre-schoolers for primary school. The Pre-school room is for children aged from 36-60 months.
In addition there are toilets and sinks to help encourage toilet training for the younger children and independence for the older children. We operate a 1:4 ratio with our toddlers and a 1:8 ratio with our Pre-school room.
Outside Play Area
Our well-equipped, fully enclosed outdoor play area allows children’s learning to continue outside. This is a creating space where children can grow.
We offer a large area for playing football, catch, hula-hoop and a big black board for mark making. We can also introduce them to sowing and growing their own seeds in our separate planting area.
There are fun opportunities to learn counting, discover colours, and play with water and sand. Picnics and tea parties or sitting and reading can all be done in our cosy outdoor shaded area. Anything the children want to achieve outside, we can support them to make this happen in a safe and stimulating environment.
We have a car park, including a secure buggy shed for pick-up and collection, helping to ensure that every visit to the nursery is welcoming and convenient for both your child and you.
