My son has attended Ducklings Pre-school and after school clubs on a regular basis and he absolutely loves it!  He often doesn’t want to leave when it’s home time and has built great relationships with the all of the carers.  

They are a lovely friendly team and do a great job at preparing the children for the big step up to reception!
