Welcome to Portsmouth South

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Portsmouth South is conveniently located along Elm Grove in central Southsea. We are close to Portsmouth University, Guildhall square, Gunwharf Quays and Palmerston Road precinct. We also have the added benefit of being within a mile of the hovercraft terminal, Portsmouth’s two main train stations and the Gosport ferry.

The old Kings Church site has been renovated to create a bright, spacious, open plan environment beyond our shop front exterior. We provide outstanding facilities for children aged 3 months through to pre-school age and we are registered with OFSTED.
