  • Puddleducks' 5th anniversary! 01/06/2017

    It's hard to believe, but Puddleducks Day Nursery was launched exactly five years ago, on 1st June 2012.

  • Inspirational day 24/05/2017

    It was an incredibly inspiring day for Sharon (Puddleducks Manager) who attended a masterclass facilitated by Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk, who is a research scientist and an inspirational speaker.

In light of the current situation with Covid-19, it is with a very heavy heart that we have taken the decision to close Puddleducks from 6pm tonight (23/3/20). As always, the health and safety of all our little ducks and our amazing staff team has remained our priority, we believe that the decision we have taken today will help to keep all of us safe. We are all living in incredibly challenging times, but I hope to welcome all of you back to our Puddleducks family when life returns to some level of normality.

I will remain contactable via email during this closure period. Sharon@puddleducksnursery.org
