Puddleducks Pre-School & Nursery

We are a stimulating, loving, friendly nursery for children aged six weeks to five years.  We aim to be a home from home nursery who offer flexible opportunities for families.

We have funded places for eligible 2 year olds and offer up to 30 hours for eligible 3 and 4 year olds. We offer flexible funded places for up to 15 hours for all 3 to 5s.

We offer school runs to five local schools everyday both morning and afternoon, as well as supporting parents throughout the holidays. We are open all year (however, we close over Christmas).

Ofsted May 2017 describe us as welcoming and caring - a place where children flourish.
