Welcome to Monkey Puzzle St Albans Orient Close

We, the Kent Family, would like to welcome you to our St Albans Orient Close nursery. We started our journey in 2013 with a small team at Monkey Puzzle Highbury, our very first nursery. We spent our time in the classrooms, learning and growing with our first groups of children about how to give them the very best start in life. Through attentive care and teamwork we were able to achieve the highest OFSTED grade, “Outstanding” in all areas at our first inspection.

Now Geoff, Wendy, Rik, Ant and Mike run 4 Outstanding Monkey Puzzle Nurseries in Islington and St Albans together with our extended family – the wonderful teams of dedicated practitioners that we work with. In early 2022, we are so excited to grow our family again with Monkey Puzzle Melody Lane, which will be run to the same high standards with our vision to “inspire children to change tomorrow’s world”.

Our Nursery Setting – Monkey Puzzle St Albans Orient Close

The nursery is housed in the former Station House from the railway line that ran from St Albans to Hatfield. The Station was first opened October 1865, closed to passengers October 1951 and finally the freight traffic ceased in October 1964. A cycle and footpath replace the old tracks, now named The Alban Way.

It is a unique grade II listed building which spans over two floors. There is a large recently renovated outdoor area with impact-absorbing play surface.

Rooms have access to the outside area and children are able to play outside whatever the weather, all year round as we have shade as well as surfacing that will not get muddy or water logged. We have a private car park to allow safe drop off and collection.

We are close to the centre of St Albans with the mainline railway station just 0.8 miles away. All main bus routes run along the London road stopping minutes from our door.

The nursery itself has been purposefully designed from scratch to provide a light and airy space for the children to learn and grow in a safe a secure environment. Each room is divided into classroom areas, rich with resources and our inspirational team of childcare professionals are passionate about creating an early love of learning for all children.

Our nursery offers high quality childcare in our specially equipped nursery for children aged three months to five years old. All of our care is specially tailored to suit your child’s age. We achieve this by placing children into the following age categories: babies, aged three to fourteen months, toddlers & tweenies, aged fourteen months to three years, and pre-school, aged three to five years. Due to our rooms being equipped especially for these ages, we are able to provide that home from home feel.
