Our Ducklings provision is for children aged 2 , it is a wonderful caring and nurturing environment, ideal for younger children making their first steps into nursery. We have a small team of dedicated and experienced staff who will provide your child with a high standard of care and through the EYFS will help to provide experiences and opportunities for your child to develop and shine. Mrs Hope is the Nursery lead and Mrs Miles.
A bit about what we do in Ducklings
Each child will have their own little folder. In the folder it will have information about what they have done each session they are in, what they have eaten and information regarding naps and toileting. You are also encouraged to comment in their too. We are also always happy to chat when you drop off or pick up your child if you have any queries.
During the week we are lucky enough to be able to go to our Forest. We currently go on a Monday morning and a Wednesday afternoon.
Every Wednesday you are invited in to Ducklings when you drop your child off to share a story with your child, This is a lovely opportunity and one that will be loved by your child.
We also have Flump visit in Ducklings. We love it when Flump joins us and challenges us to a game. We have to practise our good sitting, good listening and good looking when learning with Flump. Our activities are based on Phase 1 phonics.
We also recognise the importance of singing Nursery Rhymes which is also part of phonics. How many Nursery Rhymes does your child know? Have a listen to our singing:
Listen to us practise our Nursery Rhymes. Could you practise at home?
