Welcome to Otley

Welcome to Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery and Pre-school in Otley! As a provider of high quality care for children aged 3 months to 5 years, we offer you the peace of mind that your child will learn, play and thrive with us in a stimulating, homely and safe environment.

Everything we do is centred around our amazing children. Our dedicated areas are thoughtfully designed for the different Early Years age ranges, from mobile and non-mobile babies, right up to our pre-school children. Each room reflects the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage and is designed to be accessible to every child. Our staff are highly qualified and experienced in Early Years childcare and education, and they are passionate about what they do – that’s why our parents entrust their precious little ones to us and the children love coming to our setting.

We are conveniently located in Otley on Westgate, just opposite Waitrose supermarket and a mere stone’s throw from the town centre. Close to the A65, we’re only 10 minutes drive to Menston station with direct rail links to Leeds and Bradford. Our opening hours of 7.30am till 6.30pm are the longest in the area, making our nursery the perfect choice for busy working parents.

You are warmly invited to come and visit our nursery and pre-school – please call us on 01943 969602 or email manager@monkeypuzzleotley.co.uk, and we will arrange a time that suits you and your child. We can’t wait to meet you!
