Why Choose

Cheekie Monkeys?

At Cheekie Monkeys we aim to provide a safe, warm and stimulating environment so that all children can learn, develop and thrive.

All of our team are committed to promoting positive relationships, enabling environments and providing quality care and provision. This is to support the needs of individual children in line with the EYFS framework.

The children at Cheekie Monkeys will be given unlimited opportunities to discover, play and learn by our qualified and experienced staff. Our Mini Monkeys (0 – 2 years) and Cheekie Chimps (2 – 5 years) will take part in exciting and engaging planned activities and also be given opportunities to increase their independence with an abundance of new and exciting free choice activities.

We believe that positive partnerships with parents are an essential ingredient to the success of Cheekie Monkeys. As part of this partnership we would welcome any involvement that you may wish to offer.

Mini Monkeys

Babies of six weeks and upwards are looked after by qualified staff in the stimulating Mini Monkeys room which is filled with soft cushions, feeding chairs, colourful displays and mobiles. This is a happy place with plenty of time for hugs & cuddles and a safe environment for when your baby starts to crawl and walk. We provide exciting daily activities to feed young imaginations and we guarantee plenty of love for all our babies.

Toddlers of 1 – 2 years old will enjoy free play, group story time, singing sessions and structured play during their time in the Mini Monkeys room. These activities will promote their social skills and satisfy their inquisitive minds. The Early Years Practitioners that work with children in this age group are aware that your toddler needs someone to talk and listen to them at their own level. Every day is a new experience… sand, water, collages, building, baking, puzzles and the home corner are just a few of the activities that your child will enjoy.


0-2 Years Old

Cheekie Chimps

2-5 Years Old

Children of 2- 3 years old will start to learn all round development skills such as primary colours, shapes and counting. Children get messy playing with spaghetti and jelly; they splash in the water trough, dig in the sand and paint masterpieces for you to take home and treasure. Social interaction is very beneficial to children of this age and your child will start to become aware of their peers and will develop friendships. Growing toddlers need clear limits in a safe and fun environment.

Children of 3 years and over will take part in exciting activities to stretch skills and imagination. These activities will give your child a head start for when they begin school. Our Early Years Practitioners recognise that every child is unique and will build on their own individual achievements in order to support them in their learning. High standards are achieved by implementing the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for all children and tracking their progress in their ‘Personal Pathway’ online folder. Our Cheekie Chimps room is an environment in which children will flourish and become more confident and independent with each day.
