All of our staff are either NNEB (National Nursery Examination Board) or equivalent, or participating in the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Early Years and Childcare.
We have a very high qualified staff ratio which far exceeds that of OFSTED requirements. All of our staff are trained in First Aid.
Ritika – Nursery Owner
My name is Ritika and I am the proud owner of Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Watford.Previous I worked in the insurance industry for 12 over years acquiring a strong financial and management background before taking a career break to raise our two children, Mahika and Maanvi. I am very much a hands on mother with a great passion for quality childcare and the drive to run a successful business.
The idea came to me around three years ago when my kids enter into my life.Then I realise that’s work I really enjoy. I love their energy, honesty and their total love of everything fun and exciting. I really enjoy sharing new ideas and experiences with them. My hope is that I can create a fun, exciting and caring learning environment. I have a lot of patience, enthusiasm, creativity and enjoy helping children (and adults) to discover new things. I want to create an environment that is exciting and fun for the children and my staff. As long as children are given, love, support and encouragement they will succeed. Job satisfaction was the most important factor in choosing a career, and working with children, I believe, is the ultimate choice.”
I feel my skillset from my previous experiences will help to make this nursery a success and I cannot wait to see many more children taking their first steps and learning life skills in preparation for ‘big school’ and beyond. A full time Nursery Manager with the appropriate qualifications will be recruited to manage the day to day business operations, whilst I look after growing the business and managing the relationship with staff and parents.
