Monkey Puzzle Battersea has a varied and diverse team working in our nursery. We value warmth, friendly personalities, caring natures and professionalism alongside expertise in our staff.

Our team

Everyone brings a particular skill or energy to the team and everyone who joins us embarks on a voyage of discovery with the children, but also in their own personal and professional development. Our team ethic is very much that we can never stop learning from each other in order to achieve our shared visions and goals. We provide regular support, training and development opportunities for all team members to learn and grow to be the best that they can be.

We are currently recruiting staff in our nursery so if you would like to join us, get in touch and let us know! We’re always looking to welcome talented and passionate people into the Monkey Puzzle family!

Meet our Owner – Peter Dixon

I am delighted and excited to be the owner of Monkey Puzzle Battersea.

Having been in teaching for over 25 years – I know exactly how important a child’s first steps into learning are. I have always been passionate about education and learning. My own children – now 12 and 8 – developed their curiosity, creativity and love of learning at this stage.

At Monkey Puzzle Battersea our aim is to create a fun and stimulating environment where the children feel happy, safe and excited about their learning. As we all know – Early Years Education is vital for our children and is recognised as one of the most important stages in a child’s development. Children develop so quickly at this age. My wife – a lead English teacher – knows that this stage is vital for language acquisition as well a child’s first steps in literacy.

Each child has their own personality and characteristics and we aim to support and develop these in a warm home from home environment with a strong team of well qualified practitioners. High-quality provision will be at the very centre of all we do.

Being a lead practitioner for a number of years and then most recently in my role as an assistant head teacher I am confident that I have the enthusiasm, experience and understanding that is needed to nurture the needs of every child. We will ensure that you – as parents – feel that Monkey Puzzle Battersea is the right choice for you and your child.
