Puddleducks offers an alternative from short day preschools and large scale childcare centres catering for no more than 15 children per day. This allows the staff to really get to know and bond with your child. The carefully planned learning environment and resources allow for the development of skills and socialisation while the close and loving connections between the children, families and staff is similar to that of "a home away from home".
We understand how precious your children are and make their happiness and growth our priority. The trained and experienced owner and staff have a genuine passion for high quality child care, teaching and learning and receive ongoing training and development. To prepare the children for school the qualified staff plan and prepare a weekly program which allows for both planned, structured activities and children's spontaneous ideas; this supports children to construct their own ideas, to discover, explore, and develop their sense of agency.
We understand the importance of environmental learning and are passionate about giving the children opportunities to be in touch with the natural world and explore methods of sustainability. We have rabbits, sticks insects, a fish and a vegetable garden for the children to care for, building their sense of belonging and gaining responsibility.
