Fantastic Nursery!! My daughter started at Puddleducks when she was 18 months for 2 mornings. The transition was seamless & she settled well with the help of the fantastic staff! I've been very pleased with the nursery & staff and feel confident when I drop off my excited daughter who enjoys so much & has made some delightful friends. The feedback from staff is excellent and on her progress, food and learning all fantastic. Thank you!
