Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery in Uxbridge is part of a franchise and independently-owned by Sukhi and John Gill. The nursery has proved so popular since opening over three years ago, that the Gills decided to open a second one and were delighted to find the ideal location at Greenford Quay. The development, the proximity to nature, and having a blank canvas for the fit-out were all major draws.

Choosing a nursery, especially for a firstborn, is a serious decision. As parents themselves, the Gills have a first-hand understanding of what parents want and had been highly selective about the site for their second nursery: one in which they could provide childcare of the highest quality within a safe, secure and caring site. This desire for a first-class environment was mutual: “Greystar visited our nursery at Uxbridge and really liked what we were offering,” remarks John. 

Part of Monkey Puzzle’s ethos is to provide a fun and stimulating setting with effective learning goals in place for each individual child. Safety for children is paramount so, just as with their first nursery, there will be CCTV cameras in every room and a door-entry intercom system. The latest technology will also be used for early learning, with classes and activities including Spanish lessons, Mini Monkey Chefs and sports sessions. “We aim to offer the highest level of childcare so that children care grow, learn and develop before they go to big school,” says John. 

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery in Tillermans Court at Greenford Quay will have 160 to 180 places for children aged three months to five years. The two-floor nursery will be open five days a week all year-round, except for bank holidays, from 7.30am to 6.30pm with half-day and full-day sessions available. Healthy, balanced meals and snacks are included in the fees. 

The nursery is set to be a huge bonus for local parents and residents of Greenford Quay, which John believes is certain to become an amazing little city in itself five years from now. 

“Our nursery will be very high calibre, complementing the Greenford Quay development,” he enthuses. “After all, it simply wouldn't look right or feel right to only have an average nursery setting here.”
