Mini monkeys is our toddler room within our nursery. The room caters for children aged between 2 years to 3 years.
The children are supervised at all times within a staff ratio of one staff member to either three or four children depending on the age of the child.
The room is brightly decorated and stimulating for the children all staff are highly motivated and attentive to the children’s needs and guide the play which results in self-motivation and problem solving skills, the staff continue to give the children challenging yet achievable activities to participate in to encourage them to further their development such as jigsaws, building bricks, farm sets, train sets, dressing up, dolls, puppets, garage etc.
The room consists of a main room, a nappy changing room a toilet for the older children within the room and the main kitchen where the dinner is cooked and served.
The main room is set out in areas, these areas consist of:
- Mark making area
- Home corner
- Construction area
- Junk modelling area
- Sand and water area
- Soft play area
- Story area
- Sensory area
- Snack area
- Mathematics area
The room has a key person’s board (which we will go into more detail later in this pack), an Art Gallery Board which is used to show the children’s pictures and anything the children create in regards to celebrations throughout the year.
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.
