Avondale Cheeky Monkeys Daycare Nursery

Cheeky Monkeys is a private day nursery owned by Dyke House College and situated next to the Avondale Centre. The nursery opened in January 2012 and can take up to 37 children per day. We have created a home from home environment. We ensure all children are able to develop in a caring and considerate environment where the staff and the children are all valued for their contribution to nursery life. Children have access to an enclosed outside area which they will access on a daily basis, to extend the children's learning we are able to use Avondale's large hall and ICT suite. All children have full access to the Early Years Foundation Stage and are observed and assessed on a weekly basis. We are able to adapt and meet every child's need from dietary requirements to Special Educational Needs (SEN) The home corner - perfect opportunity for the children to demonstrate their knowledge of home life and use real life objects such as real food and metal appliances.
