“We looked at a number of nurseries for our daughter, but knew within a few minutes that she had to go to Ducklings. We visited (unknown to us) when Ofsted were carrying out an inspection, we could not have been made more welcome. We felt it would be like sending her to visit a very well educated and playful grandparent – we were not wrong, she loved every minute of it and developed so much in the time she was at Ducklings. She was looked after by Sue and her staff as though she was their own child! We had no hesitation in sending our son to Ducklings and again he enjoyed every minute, always something to do, something to learn or fun to be had – he never wanted to leave at home time. Both our children have medical issues which ducklings made adjustments for without question, hesitation and often unseen.
All the children, no matter what their needs, be they physical, mental health, language, cultural difference or anything, grow, develop and learn – but most of all – have fun in a safe and protective setting. We cannot thank everyone at Ducklings enough for all the help and support they have given us and our children over many years.”

“Our three children have all attended Ducklings over the years and we can only think of positive things to say about the nursery. Our youngest son had a few speech delays and Ducklings staff worked with him, us and the speech therapist to ensure he caught up with his peers by the time he was ready for school. Ducklings were also very supportive with my working hours – as they varied in length from week to week due to the nature of my job, they always managed to find space at very short notice. I couldn’t have managed without their help, support and understanding. Fantastic!”

“All the staff are friendly whilst also being professional. As a first time young mum I was very nervous and unsure, the staff allayed all my fears and supported me while my son settled in. I was always made welcome and they always gave their time if I had any worries or concerns, because of this my son enjoyed every minute of every day. He was given a good foundation which helped with his transition into school. My daughter will be the next one to go there – I wouldn’t consider anywhere else.”

“Ducklings offers a stimulating environment in which our daughter has flourished. Crazee Daisee is of course a firm favourite, but also the outdoor zone with its big toys and the wide range of creative activities all add to the enriched provision on offer.
But what really makes Ducklings special is the staff. The quality of care and sensitive support given to our daughter and us as a family has been tremendous. Ducklings is more than a nursery, it is a home away from home.”
