Frequently Asked Questions
Here you will find some of the frequently asked questions by parents prior to them enrolling their child/children at K8Z Cheeky Monkeyz Day Nursery & Crèche.
How do I arrange a visit?
We have an open door policy and welcome parents new and existing to visit K8Z Cheeky Monkeyz Day Nursery & Crèche without an appointment. Please be aware that for unarranged viewings, we will always aim to make a team member available to show you around, however due to staff to child ratios this may not always be possible and an alternative viewing time may be arranged.
Are you Ofsted registered?
Yes – our Ofsted registration number is EY459369.
What happens if I am delayed collecting my child?
We understand that sometimes parents are get delayed when it is time to pick thier child up. All we ask is to let us know as soon as possible to avoid any concerns. We will make arrangements to look after your child until you arrive. PLease note that our standard fees are applied if your child is collected late and in some circumstances a late charge will be applied to your account if you arrive after closing.
What is the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) looks at the stages of development from birth to the end of the child’s first year in school (reception year). These years see the greatest growth and learning for your child.

What is a key person?
A Key Person is a member of staff who will support your child during their attendance at our nursery or crèche. They become a vital and important link for the care and educational support of your child’s development during their time with us. They will be available for you to pass on relevant information regarding your child on a daily basis and update you as a parent on their development over the term.
The Key Person is also responsible for recording and maintaining your child’s development record, and meeting with you termly to discuss their developmental progress and individual needs. We welcome parental contribution to support your child and this can be done through daily discussions and parent observations. This information is used to plan activities to aid your child’s development and learning.
Prior to your child moving to school the Key Person will complete a ‘record of development’ which is shared with you before being sent to your child’s teacher.
Do I have to provide nappies?
Yes please. We are happy to use both disposable and re-usable nappies.
Please provide nappies for the day (or week) plus wipes/cotton wool and cream if you use it. Please ensure your child’s nappy bag is clearly named.
It's A New Year:
What the Parents Say
The staff at Cheeky Monkeys are amazing, very friendly and fantastic with the children. As a full time mum it's difficult to leave your child in someone else's care but my daughter loves going in the nursery due to the strong relationship developed with staff. Attending the nursery has developed my daughter both educationally as well as her social development, she now enjoys making new friends and taking part in the many different activities the nursery offers.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to "K8s Cheeky Monkeyz" the staff are very enthusiastic about their children's learning through fun. You can always guarantee the children will have a busy day here with practical learning. The environment is bright, happy and safe, my twins love coming to nursery and any other events held by the manager Katie Forster. The manager and owner Katie is very passionate about inspiring the children to develop into happy, well mannered and positive little beings. Thank you guys for all your support and motivation!
I have no idea how I stumbled across Cheeky Monkeyz but I'm so glad I did. Having tried several 'holiday clubs' which involved nothing more than the kids being in a room all day, and none of which my son enjoyed, Katie's club is absolutely amazing! The WOW factor is definitely the swimming activities and Isaak loves the time he spends with Katie and her staff so much that he would rather go there than for me to take days off work! All the staff know all the children well, their likes and dislikes and what makes them tick. Ideally all parents would love to spend the school holidays with their kids but for most people that's just not possible; this is definitely the next best thing.
