Welcome to Wild Monkeys Childcare.
Here at Wild Monkeys Childcare we are unique! We aim to provide a homely environment, similar to a childminder, in harmony with the developmental and social opportunities of a nursery - the best of both worlds!
We are also one of only a handful of nurseries in the local area offering Forest School provision! This is a fantastic method of teaching and learning that helps your child connect to nature and develop their skills and abilities - see our Forest Nursery page for more information!
We are registered with Ofsted, which allows you to apply for the childcare element of your Tax Credits, Tax Free Childcare, Early Years Funding (15 & 30 hours) and 2 year old funding. Click here for more information on what you are eligible for. Our Ofsted grading of 'Outstanding' allows us to offer government funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. You can find out more about this here.
On our last Ofsted inspection, which was on 28/10/22, we received a grading of Outstanding. The grading system is as follows...
Grade 1 - Outstanding: outstanding provision is highly effective in meeting the needs of all children exceptionally well. This ensures that children are very well prepared for the next stage of their learning.
Grade 2 - Good: good provision is effective in delivering a provision that meets all of the needs of all children well. This ensures children are ready for the next stage of their learning.
Grade 3 - Satisfactory: satisfactory provision is performing less well than expectations in one or more of the key areas. It requires improvement in order to be good.
Grade 4 - Inadequate: provision that is inadequate requires significant improvement and/or enforcement. The provision is failing to give children an acceptable standards of early years education and/or is not meeting the safeguarding and welfare requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. It will be inspected again within 12 months of the date of inspection.
