In 2005, Monkey Puzzle launched the first ever franchised nursery, which has now grown to over 60 successful franchised nursery settings nationwide, making Monkey Puzzle the UK’s largest childcare franchise network. Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries is the undisputed market leader in the UK franchised nursery sector.  Year on year Monkey Puzzle franchises have made outstanding progress and now provide a combined capacity of some 4,000-child care places. Growth continues at a brisk pace, with many more setting opening across the UK this year.
