Its the start the new term and we happily welcome back our term time only children. It has been a busy few weeks for us and also sad as we had to say goodbye to our school leavers. We were overwhelmed by the kind words, and treats from our lovely families. We wish them the very best of luck as they begin their next adventure. I am sure you will love school and we are so proud of each and every one of our children.
We have lots of fun and educational activities coming up in nursery this term at no additional cost to parents/carers.
Our preschool children will be having weekly Spanish lessons (how exciting to learn a new language and extend their learning)
We will also see the return of Footie Tots following the summer break. Children will develop their physical skills, engage in team work, follow instructions, and have fun with an array of activities (its always exciting to see who will be awarded the weekly Footie Tots Trophy for effort?) The babies will continue with Bloom Baby classes where they can access lots of new learning opportunities and enjoy music and singing as a group. (they love love love the sessions!). We will also be taking a group of children to visit the lovely residents of Welby croft every week. This will bring joy to the residents and allow the children to meet new members of the community. We have done similar in the past (pre Covid) and it was a huge success.
The sun is shining, and the positivity is flowing. Happy new term everyone! ☀️👍🥰
What a great morning we have been out and about in our community yesterday. We had trip down to the park for great fun and being active in the fresh air! We then had Fish Friday and treated ourselves to a chippy dinner. Yummy, fishcakes, sausages and best of all chips buttys 😋😋 we had such a great morning. We were very tired when we got back to nursery.
So this week marks the end of our time with our graduating class of 2023!!! We are all so emotional about them moving on to school. Though excited for them all to tackle new challenges. We wish you all the best of luck next week and onwards, keep in touch with us!! Congratualtions Cheeky Monkeys Class of 2023!!!
How to prepare your child for childcare Whether it is your child's very first day or their first day back in childcare, we have some top tips and advice to help them settle and adapt to new environments.
Today has been a great morning some of our Cheeky Monkeys have been down to the libary to explore lots of books and stories! We love exploring lots of stories and challenging our literacy skills! Reading is food for our imaginations!!!!
Today some of the big children went for a trip out in the community. We visted lots of places in our community learning lots of new skills. We visted Morrisons talking about healthy food choices and the value of money. Whilst there we learnt how look for different things in the shop and how to pay for them. We looked for healthy snacks and things to keep our bodies healthy commenting and talking about oral health and brushing our teeeth. We loved stopping for a cheeky ice lolly to cool us down! We then did some lovely walking ensuring we followed our road safety rules!!! We had lots of fun looking at the fire station and fire engine! Moving round our town we saw lots of animals we found chickens, roosters, horses, dogs and cats!! We then stopped on our way back to nursery for a little play in the park seeimg lots of our other friends in the park with thier mummys and daddys. We had lots of fun!!!
Today some of our Cheeky Monkeys took a trip down to the libary 📚 we had a great time looking at the books and stories. Listening to stories as a group and individually looking at books. We all walked down together making sure we followed our road safety rules 🚦 we stopped at the park on our way back to nursery for a little play session what a a great day!!!
This week we have completed two consecutive trips to Peak Wildlife Park with our 4 year old children starting mainstream school in September. The children and staff had a fabulous time meeting all of the lovely animals and exploring the park. We also took with us a picnic lunch and shared lots of fun and laughter along the way. It was lovely to make lasting memories and as a final treat for children who are due to start full time education. We will be continuing this tradition each year for our school leavers. We will miss our graduates so very much and wish them well in their next chapter. We love our Cheeky Monkeys Family 🥰

Level 3 Nursery Practitioner - High Peak SK23 - Indeed.com Cheeky Monkeys Day Nursery
Cheeky Monkeys Day Nursery turns 20 Years old in April this year!! To celebrate such an amazing anniversary Claire and Garry will be hosting a party at Whaley Bridge Bowling club on Sunday 30th April. We are now inviting previous Cheeky monkeys children of aged 6 and under who used to attend nursery with us but didn't have chance to celebrate their graduations in the usual way due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The party is not staffed so a parent/carer will be required to stay too. There will be a disco, bouncy castle, soft play and food provided. Should you wish for your child to attend then please contact nursery by emailing us on [email protected]. The party time for older children is 3 - 5 pm. We hope to see you there!!!🤩🎉🎈
Average nursery loses £32,000 a year by subsidising 15-hour childcare Less than 2 per cent of nurseries say the Government funding they receive to provide universal childcare for three-and four-year-olds covers their delivery costs, according to a survey by the National Day Nurseries Association, which also found that closures have risen by 87 per cent.
We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for all the effort shown to keep the nursery open today. People have gone over and above their normal duties to ensure the children were looked after safely. Staying open is essential as closing impacts on so many things and we always aim to support families wherever safely possible. For those staff that came in early, those who came in off annual leave and those that came in later (once safe to do so) we are very, very grateful. It showed great team work today... apart from us! We honestly did try. Sorry. Even a 4x4 couldn't get through the amount of snow where we live! Thank you to all of the parents who contacted nursery and gave messages of support to the team and shared your plans regarding attendance etc. Your interactions really supported us to make a safe and effective plan.
Regards Claire and Garry

The children have had a great time over the last couple of weeks doing activities for Halloween. Some of the children and staff enjoyed dressing up (nothing too scary of course!) We have loved hearing about the lovely activities and events the children have been taking part in at home. 👻🎃😺

The new term is well under way here at Cheeky Monkeys. We were sad to say goodbye to all of our school leavers but were very proud to share their final graduation days and wish them well in their new chapters. We would like to say a huge thankyou to all the parents/carers who offered lovely words of thanks and praise for the work we do and the impact this has had on their amazing children. I know the children were very excited to start school and the transition work we did as part of our curriculum supported them to feel prepared and confident to move on from Nursery to school after many years with us. 🧑🎓👩🎓🥰
Good luck to our graduation class of 2022
We will be closing on Monday 19th September in order to pay our respects to Queen Elizabeth ll as she is laid to rest. So many of us were very saddened by the passing of our Queen following a wonderful 70 year reign. Monday will be a day of sadness, reflection and thanks for her many years of service and dedication to the monarchy.
Thank you for your service your majesty 💂♀️👑❤️
When we have spoken to the children about this we have kept things simple and handled it in a very subtle way. The children are aware that Queen Elizabeth ll has died and King Charles lll is our new King. The children responded so well and we have had some lovely comments and questions from them. We really are very proud of all of the children here at Cheeky Monkeys!
The childcare industry has taken a huge hit over the last years. The care we offer never falters and even through the pandemic, nursery staff put aside their own fears and it was business as usual (with quite a few Covid guidelines to implement and follow too) The importance of Early Childhood interventions is huge and the impact for children is vital. We need more recognition and support as an industry and to invest in our young children. The last few years have seen less people training to become Nursery Nurses and sadly amazing, well qualified and experienced staff leaving the industry countrywide due to the pressure, lack of funding and lack of recognition as a profession. As a manager of a Nursery I see first hand the loving care, patience, support, hard work, challenges, dedication and the commitment that staff offer to the children and I am so grateful for my amazing team! It is sad that Nurseries are having to close their doors after years of service. We thank all of our families for their continued support.
NEWS: Settings forced to close leaving parents unable to access provision Today the BBC reported that the number of early years and childcare providers being driven to permanently close their doors is leaving parents in England without access to early years and childcare provision.
