"My 4 year old has attended Puddleducks St Leonards for over a year. He really looks forward to his days at preschool and spending time with Emily and Hannah and all his little friends. The teachers are kind, caring and very welcoming and inclusive. I am kept regularly up to date on his activities and receive their Facebook updates and newsletters really informative. I also love that his morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided and find that he is more willing to try new foods at preschool than at home, so its extending his taste buds. I would happily recommend Puddleducks to any mum looking for a warm and friendly day care and preschool."

"My son absolutely loves Puddleducks - the environment, staff and other children make him feel like it’s a home from a home, it’s very warm, friendly and welcoming. I am always impressed with the level of creativity and fun that the educators bring to the centre, every day feels like they are learning something new. The number of children and the mix of ages I feel has been great for my sons development, he learns how to behave around children of all ages and has made some very good friends (both with the children and staff!)."

"The best thing about Puddleducks is knowing that you are leaving your son with people who care about him and that he will have a fun, safe, educational and entertaining day. It’s a great environment with great staff."

"We love Puddleducks! From the small class size to the broad range of activities, art and crafts, child involvement, staff communication, absolute passion and dedication both Emily and Hannah have for the children is a testament to the overall running of the centre. Our son looks forward to his Puddleducks days."

"My son has been attending Puddleducks for over a year now, after previously being at a big 35 children per room childcare centre where he was very unhappy.
Puddleducks has been a nurturing and caring environment, with just 15 children the small intimate environment allows the childcare educators to get to know the children well and spend time engaging in activities with them. The childcare educators always go the extra mile to provide a fun, safe and nurturing environment that allows the kids to grow and develop. At previous childcare centres I have sometimes felt it is more like "child-minding and supervising" as opposed to actually engaging with the children and helping them learn, but at Puddleducks I have never felt this way and always feel that the childcare educators engage with the children and structure the day around fun learning activities for the kids. My son just loves going to Puddleducks, and is often disappointed when Saturday rolls around and he can't go to Puddleducks!"

"Puddleducks is a fantastic centre. My son has been going for a couple of years now and my daughter nearly one year. My younger son will go as soon as he can. It is a small, warm and nurturing environment. The staff are lovely and my kids learn so much stuff and have lots of fun. My kids are quite shy and the staff have always been great building their confidence. Fantastic centre!"
