Giggling Monkeys was founded to move away from the large nursery chain establishments and to bring about the one to one care and connectivity every child deserves.

The company's own learning journey, to create a progressive play environment was generated by its passion to reconnect children with enjoyment, inquisitiveness and excitement. An environment allowing childhood to explore, art , play, music and nature.

The building layout and interior design creates the spaces for discovery, from the free flow rooms, sensory play zones, the ateliers, the art studio, the kitchen and the natures indoor room, each place captured the intrigue from children to engage and enjoy.
