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.
In 2014 Puddleducks was inspected by OFSTED (the Office For Standards in Education) and was described as either ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’ in all areas of provision. This is a difficult standard to reach and is testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff.
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
