Company Overview

Since launching in 2005, Monkey Puzzle has a network that totals over 30 outlets, of which the vast majority are owned and operated by our franchisees. Comprising 4,51 child places, the business has grown to become one of the childcare sector’s major players. We work closely with parents, staff and Ofsted to deliver childcare of the highest quality, providing children with unlimited opportunities to learn, develop and grow within a safe, secure and caring environment.

Franchise Overview

Since 2005, when Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries Ltd launched the first childcare franchise in the UK, we have seen immense growth year on year. Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries is now the largest childcare franchise in the UK and the third largest nursery provider overall. As we look towards another successful year we continue to attract inspired, entrepreneurial individuals who want to be part of our thriving brand.


Our training programme covers all the necessary aspects of a private day nursery operation. Initial ‘up front’ training lasts for a week and is conducted in a classroom style at our Hertfordshire head office. Follow up training and support is ongoing and held onsite at the respective day nursery. The training features a detailed syllabus relating to the substantial operations manual that is issued to all franchisees.

Daily Life of a franchisee

The franchisee will be highly visible and oversee the safe and successful day-to-day operations of the business. A full-time qualified manager and staff will be employed to ensure all regulatory and Monkey Puzzle policies and procedures are adhered to. The franchisee will control the P&L, will market the business through relevant channels and be the senior face to the customer in line with the proven Monkey Puzzle business model.
