Welcome to Monkey Puzzle 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.

We are part of an award-winning nursery group, offering high-quality childcare in our specially equipped nursery for children aged three months to five years old.

Adding to this, we tailor our care to suit your child’s age. We achieve this by placing children into the following age categories: babies aged 3 to 18 months, toddlers aged 18 – 24 months, and lastly preschool aged 2 to 5 years. Due to our rooms being equipped especially for these ages, we are able to provide that home-from-home feel.

Hello. I’m Jon and I am the Nursery Director at Monkey Puzzle New Cross. My team and I are dedicated to giving every child the best start in life by caring for and supporting them to play, learn and grow in a positive and stimulating environment.

I would love to welcome and show you around our beautiful nursery setting so please get in touch.

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 want all of our parents to know that their children are in excellent hands when at Monkey Puzzle New Cross.

We are proud to share that Monkey Puzzle New Cross has a beautiful sister nursery at Monkey Puzzle Hither Green. Our management team across both nurseries has a wealth of experience and strive to achieve our first Ofsted Inspection as OUTSTANDING.

Our children are soaking up the sun as much as they can! 🌞🌞🌞

We are hoping for more sunshine to come out and play with us this summer 🙏

Outdoor play is essential for the little ones, as they enhance their explorative, imaginative, social, and communication skills! They also develop their gross motor skills, as they play sports games, complete obstacle courses, and go for walks to the park!🔍💭👯‍♀️🌳

The children also learn to take risks, build their confidence, and use their senses to get to know the world around them! 🌍
