Owner & Director
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 Battersea Monkey Puzzle 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.
Monkey Puzzle is committed to providing great career opportunities for its entire staff. We are very keen to ensure that our team of staff participate in training at all levels. Our policy is always to recruit and/or promote internally if at all possible.
