Welcome to Monkey Puzzle Melody Lane

We, the Kent Family, would like to welcome you to our nursery. We started our journey in 2013 with a small team at Monkey Puzzle Highbury, our very first nursery. We spent our time in the classrooms, learning and growing with our first groups of children about how to give them the very best start in life. Through attentive care and teamwork we were able to achieve the highest OFSTED grade, “Outstanding” in all areas at our first inspection.

Now Geoff, Wendy, Rik, Ant and Mike run 4 Outstanding Monkey Puzzle Nurseries in Islington and St Albans together with our extended family – the wonderful teams of dedicated practitioners that we work with. In early 2022, we are so excited to grow our family again with Monkey Puzzle Melody Lane, which will be run to the same high standards with our vision to “inspire children to change tomorrow’s world”.

The Kent Family

Our nursery offers high quality childcare in our specially equipped nursery for children aged three months to five years old. All of our care is specially tailored to suit your child’s age. We achieve this by placing children into the following age categories: babies, aged three to fourteen months, toddlers & tweenies, aged fourteen months to three years, and pre-school, aged three to five years. Due to our rooms being equipped especially for these ages, we are able to provide that home from home feel.

Monkey Puzzle Melody Lane is located in the heart of Highbury and is just a 12 minute walk from Highbury and Islington train station.

Meet our Monkey Puzzle Melody Lane Team

Today I am delighted to introduce our Melody Lane Nursery Manager....... Francesca Higgins!

Francesca has worked for the company for 5 years now, joining us as Deputy Manager when we opened Monkey Puzzle Angel and supporting the team to receive their Outstanding Ofsted Grading in August June 2016. Three years ago she became Manager of Monkey Puzzle Angel and we are so proud that she will now be leading the opening of Monkey Puzzle Melody Lane.

Here are a few words from Francesca:

Hi I’m Francesca, I’m originally from Essex and have spent much of my life living and working in England. After earning my degree, I took a year out to travel and teach abroad, but in the end I decided that I wanted to continue my journey and development closer to home.

For the last 5 years I have had the pleasure of working at MPA as both Deputy Manager and Manager. I am so excited to come across to Melody Lane and open up the new site. I hope to bring all I have learnt at MPA to the new team and families.

It’s hard to say exactly what it is that makes working with children so engaging. As well as being so cute and funny, I love watching their skills and personalities develop over time!

Outside of work, I’m a big fan of literature and writing. In fact, one day I hope to write my own children’s book and get it published!
