What our parents say...

Amazing nursery and amazing management too, making sure the nursery runs smoothly, love the new refurb!

Parent of William Harris Way

Cheeky Monkeys William Harris Way has an inspirational, incredible manager and all staff members. From day one on my son’s arrival up until this current day, it has been nothing but full of positive energy, developments, encouragement and support throughout for my child’s journey.

My child has built a close rapport and relationships with all his key skill workers. A family-friendly atmosphere generated with a high level of professionalism at all times from the amazing manager and the team.

We highly recommend Cheeky Monkey nursery to everyone who is looking for that little bit extra peace of mind when it comes to your child’s learning experience and further development. I would like to thank the manager and the management for all their hard work, hospitality and high level of professionalism given every day I drop my child off who loves this place a lot. Without you all and your support and encouragement, we wouldn’t be here as we are today. Thank you to the manager and team.

Brilliant Nursery with amazing staff. My son has attended this nursery for nearly 3 years and he loves it there. He has grown in himself and his confidence with the help of the staff. They are kind and caring and when my son needed a little extra support due to illness, food allergies etc they have always stepped up. They have challenged and helped him with learning and always made things fun.

I am very sad to be leaving however, he starts school and we can’t stay forever, otherwise, we would!

I honestly can not sing their praises enough. This nursery has helped me and my son more than they’ll ever know. My son was involved in a tragic incident a few years ago and since then has needed a lot of emotional/mental extra support. My son struggled to play with others and struggled to express his emotions.

Nursery staff went above and beyond to make sure my son’s extra needs were met. Not only did they help my son but they also helped me, as an extremely anxious mum. It’s only because of them that I can now leave him in the care of other professionals.

Cheeky Monkeys staff are absolutely amazing and pushed for support for my son until he received it, never gave up on us and I can’t thank them enough. As well as having fun there, they also taught my son months of the year, numbers, letters, different planets etc.

He also loved lunchtime there, it was always a nice, healthy variety throughout the week!

Cheeky Monkeys is amazing! My daughter was a very slow walker and they helped her every single day. She even took her first steps at nursery which was recorded and showed to me as soon as I got there and then uploaded to the app.

All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and my daughter settled

in very quickly. She looks forward to nursery everyday and very often calls the girls at home.

My daughter has loved being at Cheeky Monkeys. She has made some really good friends. The staff are always friendly and kind. They’ve always looked after my daughter really well. She has learnt so much at nursery and is ready for school because of this.

We have been so pleased with our son’s progress. He has good relationships with the staff and has developed great friendships with his peers. The staff are very flexible and happy to help with advice if needed. The nursery itself seems great. I’m excited to see what the future holds with the new ownership. Thank you to everyone, your all angels.

The staff are amazing. Little boy started at 5 months and took to all the staff really well. They welcomed him into their family from the start.

Kept me updated with everything and have been very flexible with sudden day changes due to work commitments. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

What a wonderful nursery! My kids love coming here, they always have such a wonderful time and take part in lots of activities. My eldest son loves getting picked up by the Cheeky Monkeys bus after school and really enjoys after school club. Highly recommended!

– Parent of The Essex

I have a little boy who is five and girl who is three and a baby which is one. Cheeky Monkeys is there whenever I need them and has been for years. They have done school runs for me, holiday clubs, day sessions and even looked after my older two when giving birth to my youngest. The staff are fab and the manager is amazing. I would recommend this nursery to anyone.

Our girl started at Cheeky Monkeys just over two years ago. She was our first and expectedly, we were very protective of her, especially as her words were few. Taking her to Cheeky Monkeys was one of our best decisions. They made her feel welcome, within weeks she was settled into the baby room without any issues. We got detailed written reports daily of her activities and also had access to Tapestry which was regularly updated. She was assigned a key person, based on observing who she bonded with the most, which we found very comforting. It was soon time to move to the toddler class. We were consulted beforehand and it was phased to avoid any shock. She was also moved alongside a few others that she’d been with within the baby class. Needless to say, the transition was seamless. At the toddler class, it was fun with a bit of learning. We had regular catchups with her key person to discuss her progress and give our input. Extremely pleased. We now have our second child, with no second thoughts.

My daughter first came here at 10 months old until she commenced school in September. She made some lovely friends and I loved watching her confidence grow and skills that have helped her so much in adapting to school life and being independent. We use the holiday club in the half term and she is also excited to see her friends and the staff.

My son has been attending this nursery since he was ten months old. He is now nearly four and in his last year here before starting school. He has developed so well here and has made some really good friends. He always comes home happy and full of excitement about his day. The staff are really friendly and create a really happy and relaxed atmosphere for the kids. He learns through play and is encouraged to be independent and learn new things.

– Parent of Cheeky Monkeys @ The Essex

Our experience as a family joining the nursery has been positive. We have found the staff to be inviting, warm and nurturing. They have considered the needs of my child. Staff have shown understanding and encouraged my child to be an active participant. My child has increased confidence, language and skills which I believe have been due to the nursery setting.

My children (6 and 3) come to the creche on a Saturday morning and they love it, it’s a job to get them to leave. They feel comfortable and safe in the environment with the staff. There are lots of activities to choose from and they are spoilt for choice. So far their favourites are the building and construction area and making playdough but each week is a lovely surprise. Cheeky Monkeys is a brilliant nursery, fun, safe, lots of learning experiences and lots to stimulate and engage in a wonderful environment.

– Parent of Cheeky Monkeys @ The Essex

My daughter has been going to Cheeky Monkeys for 6  months now and has always enjoyed it even from day 1. She happily walks through the front door and into her room. All the staff are so welcoming and patient, always there to help. It’s so nice to see how much more confident my daughter is, playing with other children and getting stuck in.

– Parent of Cheeky Monkeys @ The Essex

My family and I are extremely appreciative of the staff and manager. Everything from looking after our son, his development and once where we hit unforeseen financial problems thus causing a delay in our payment. We have been blessed by the trust, patience and confidence given to us by management. A definite daycare suitable for parents who work long hours. Staff and management are open and very helpful. Our son is loving it, making friends and shows steady development. Me and my husband are very happy and thankful to your nursery.

I’m very happy with the staff in the baby room. The key person is very responsible, hard-working and with a wide range of knowledge of my sons needs and development. My son has improved a lot in all areas but especially in physical development where he needed more support. His teacher knows exactly what he needs and what will work with him. All the staff, in general, are very nice.

– Parent of Cheeky Monkeys William Harris Way

I couldn’t be happier with the nursery my daughter loves it. She has learnt so much since being there. All the staff are always happy, friendly and helpful, I know my daughter is safe and will be looked after when I’m at work.

The manager of Cheeky Monkeys William Harris Way is very approachable, easy to talk to and is very supportive of her staff and children. she has supported myself and my son over a very difficult time the last 12 months and I couldn’t thank her enough for everything she has done for us. She has made the nursery a very homely place to be. The manager is very trustworthy and will help anyone out if and when they need it.

We have been with Cheeky Monkey Day Nursery and Pre School for the last four years. I am really happy with the staff, they are always really friendly and supportive to me and my girls. If I am ever concerned about anything I always inform the manager who is amazing and resolves any issues, she is very approachable, kind and caring. I that it is great value for money and also very flexible if I need to change the girls’ hours/days for work commitments.

Lovely teachers, always helpful. Happy to accommodate. Food lovely.

I’m very pleased with the nursery. My child is well looked after and seems happy to be here. The staff are all lovely and go out of their way to do what your child needs. It’s nice and quiet with small groups so children can form friendships and receive a lot of attention. Children are always met with a smile and all staff seem to enjoy what they do.

Both of my children have attended here for the past two years with our youngest joining in September. The staff are caring, attentive and offer a family feel. they have been flexible with my working hours and have been a huge asset in my wife’s return to work. The children both come home happy and tell all about their day, our son loves forest school and we have liked the switch to more natural resources!

– Parent of Cheeky Monkeys @ The Essex

Excellent… my daughter attended a previous nursery where she never spoke, was very shy no confidence! Changed her to Cheeky Monkey’s different child one day in, she is happy talking made friends loves it and would go every day. Staff are fantastic, I am so pleased I moved her to cheeky monkeys its great to see her so happy and content and full of confidence.

Two years at her last nursery and not one word did she speak, so quiet shy vulnerable, now after one week at this nursery wow what a change for the better….massive thumbs up for all the staff absolutely fantastic care they provide would recommend every time.

My son has just left Cheeky Monkeys and has been there for the past 2 years. He has left now to start his new adventure to reception, thanks to the lovely staff he is definitely ready for school he has loved every minute, and learnt so much and built up his self-confidence. All the staff are doing an amazing job with the children we are always informed about what activities they have been doing each day, what they have eaten etc which is lovely. Thank you Cheeky Monkeys for being fabulous

This nursery and the management have been the upmost to me and my children, from family changes at home to changes regarding the nursery setting and classes they have always been in support of me as the boy’s mother and as teachers to them and what they feel is best for my children. I?m so grateful to them and all the help and support they have always given me and my children.
