Welcome to New Cross

Monkey Puzzle New Cross is situated in the heart of the community conveniently located within walking distance of three train stations – New Cross Gate, Queens Road, Peckham and Nunhead providing quick and easy access to London.

Our purposely converted nursery building has been designed with the learning and development of children in mind. The light and spacious, open planned rooms provide a stimulating and enabling environment for our children to learn, play and grow, not to mention the private Baby Garden and free flow options for Toddlers and Preschool which give ample access to the inviting and intriguing outside spaces. We are a short walk away from New Cross and New Cross Gate train stations and bus routes into London and Lewisham.

The aim of Monkey Puzzle New Cross is to create a home – from – home environment for our children, where children feel safe, happy, and healthy. Each child is welcomed, supported and cared for by our team of dedicated and highly trained staff whose primary concern is the safety and wellbeing of our children. We would like to have all our parents peace of mind that their children are in excellent hands when at Monkey Puzzle New Cross.

We are proud to share that Monkey Puzzle New Cross forms part of two sister Nurseries, Monkey Puzzle Bromley who holds an OFSTED GOOD rating as well as being awarded the Top 10 Day Nursery in London Award 2017 and our newest Nursery; Monkey Puzzle Orpington. Our management team has a wealth of experience and strive to achieve our first Ofsted Inspection as OUSTANDING.
