All about Little Chimps at Monkspath Junior and Infant School.

We understand that choosing childcare is one of the most important and difficult decisions you will make. Most new parents feel somewhat perplexed about returning to work after having a baby – Should you return to work at all? Should you return part time or full time? Should you work from home? When is the right time to return? The choices of childcare can sometimes be agonising and with so many options out there – grandparents, child minders, nanny or nursery care – how do you know you are making the right choice?

We know that your priority is to find a nursery that offers the right setting for your child and one that also understands the importance of earning the trust and confidence of you, the parent/carer. At Little Chimps we are here to offer you the security of knowing your child is well cared for and looked after.

  • At Little Chimps we lay down the foundations so that when your child leaves us to enter the next step in their learning journey, they leave happy, educated, independent, confident and with all of the social skills needed for their next big step!
