Welcome to Monkey Puzzle Woodford

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Woodford is proudly located in the heart of Woodford and is just a three minute walk from Woodford tube station. This makes us well located for serving families in the London Borough of Redbridge. We are part of an award winning nursery group, offering high quality childcare in our specially equipped nursery for children aged three months to five years old. Adding to this, we tailor our care to suit your child’s age. We achieve this by placing children into the following age categories: babies aged three to fourteen months, toddlers & tweenies aged fourteen months to three years. And lastly pre-school aged three to five years. Due to our rooms being equipped especially for these ages, we are able to provide that home from home feel.

We are open 7:30am to 6:30pm Monday to Friday for 51 weeks per year, providing you with the reliability that you need.

Monkey Puzzle Woodford is fully Ofsted registered but we have not yet been inspected. Nevertheless, we plan to reach Outstanding and have the experience in our team to deliver exactly that for our children. We encourage every parent to come and take a look for yourselves, to get a feel for what we do and why children have really great days with us.

Hello. I’m Nosh and I am the Monkey Puzzle Woodford nursery manager. My team and I are dedicated to giving every child the best start in life by caring for and supporting them to play, learn and grow in a positive and stimulating environment.

I would love to welcome and show you around our beautiful nursery setting so please get in touch.

In over 2s this week the children have enjoyed baking biscuits, this seems to be one of their favourite activities at the moment and they sat and talked about different quantities of ingredients they put in, then mixing it all together and using shapes to cut out the shape of them, As the weather was so glorious this week they also enjoyed a picnic outside in our lovely garden! 🌸🌿😊.

This week the under 2s have been experimenting with lots of different coloured sand and paints! they have really loved doing lots of different sensory activities including finger painting and feeling different textures such a bubble wrap and crazy foam!

The children have began to show alot more interest in books and stories and are often found in the book area listening to a story that their carer is reading to them or singing familiar songs and rhymes. a firm favourite at the moment is " if you happy and you know it!"

This week in under 2s the children have had fun sounding out the letters of their names and exploring the different colours, .
The practitioners made some moon sand and used the giant cars to encouraged the children to make tyre marks as well as using their hands to feel the different textures.
They then used the rollers to roll and mix the different coloured paint across the bubble wrap to see what different colours we could make and how the bubbles felt beneath our fingers... we love messy play up in under 2s 😊

We have had a busy week this week in over 2s.

The children enjoyed listening to stories with their carers throughout the week helping the children with familiar phrases and extending their vocabulary.
We also made some amazing art making paint splatter pictures with neon paint, black paper and using different tools.
We loved being in the garden!! 🌸🌿 we played hide and seek using a pig from the farm animals using a range of different movements to find them, Then extending our learning by becoming different animals moving our bodies just like them wriggling like worms, stomping like elephants and dinosaurs and hopping like rabbits and frogs.
We then done some yoga 🧘‍♀️ 🧘‍♂️ to relax and stretch our muscles and bodies. 😊

The children have been showing alot of interest in traditional books and stories this week 📖, our Practioners built upon the children's interest by creating an interest table based upon the story the 3 little pigs 🐷 one of the children's favourites 😊 the children talked about the different materials used in the story and really enjoyed constructing the different houses as well as role playing the different parts of the book.
Can you guess which house blew down with a huff and a puff from the big bad wolf? 🐺
