Here are some comments that we have received from our most recent parent feedback:
“My son has only been at Puddleducks for a short time but has really settled well and is enjoying it. I was worried as he had such a break from nursery last year but I can tell he is happy already. The staff are great, lots of activities and trips to the park. Also very reassuring to get real time updates and photos on the app. I would recommend the nursery!” Joanne. R 2021
“We didn’t even review other places when we chose this nursery. We went for word of mouth from family and friends.
From the very start, our daughter has been well looked after and the staff can’t do enough for her. She looks for to going “big school” as she puts it and comes out smiling everyday.
From bills to updates on the Famly app, to extra help when needed, I cannot fault Puddleducks at all, and we will continue the good word of mouth.” Chris. H 2021
“The most amazing nursery .. staff are so warm and welcoming, like an extended family. My little boy regularly tells me how much he loves the staff there and it’s so reassuring and fills me with confidence when dropping him off he’s in the best hands” Olivia. C 2021
“I could not recommend Puddleducks enough. Both my girls have been looked after amazingly by staff. The daily activities they plan are so varied and encouraging development. My youngest is still there and loves it!” Becca. M 2021
