We had a fantastic Grand Opening on 9th Nov Saturday, with a special visit from the Mayor of Watford!
Where we raised funds for the charity, ‘Raise’, by donating 50% of parents’ registration fees. The funds raised by Monkey Puzzle will go towards the local hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit, which funds everything from specialist equipment to room refurbishments.
Monkey Puzzle Watford is owned and managed by husband and wife team Sachin and Ritika Verma, alongside a team of qualified practitioners.
The nursery, which is available for children from 3 months through to 5 years, is conveniently located just a short walk away from Watford Junction Station and Watford Underground Station – ideal for parents who commute to work.
Watford’s home-from-home environment features dedicated rooms for babies, toddlers and pre-school, with age-specific activities targeted to achieve EYFS’s 7 key areas of learning and development for children. Open from 7.30am to 6.30pm, healthy food is prepared on site for all age groups by a trained nursery chef.
The nursery will run regular outings to aid the children’s learning and awareness of their surroundings, although the nursery has its own outdoor play area which includes a separate fenced garden for babies and a forest area that will provide children with the opportunity to grow and cook their own vegetables and herbs.
“We’re so excited to have the nursery up and running; and we were honoured to have the Mayor cut the ribbon.
“From our initial idea, this has been 3 years in the making. We’ve been on an incredible journey – and it doesn’t stop here! We have so much planned for our little home-from-home and we can’t wait to put it all into action.
“We’re also delighted to have another opportunity to support ‘Raise’ and the Special Care Baby Unit as it’s such an important charity that means a lot to our community. Charity is important to our family and we want to instil this value at the heart of the nursery.”
The Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries franchise has more than 60 childcare settings nationwide, making us the UK’s largest childcare franchise network and the 3rd largest childcare provider overall.
