About Puddleducks

Puddleducks is a committee-run charity organisation that provides pre-school education to the children of Over and the surrounding areas. Children can start Puddleducks from 2 years 6 months and we support their development up to primary school age.

Puddleducks is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance (PLA).  As such, we have adopted the constitution of the PLA and encourage all aspects of development to give each child a secure foundation on which to build future learning, as well as to contribute to the enjoyment of their early childhood.

Our aims at Puddleducks are to provide:

  • high quality care and learning opportunities by experienced and qualified staff
  • a balanced curriculum
  • a safe, stimulating and welcoming environment
  • equal opportunities for all children
  • clear policies and procedures
  • the opportunity for parents and carers to be involved
