Typically, your child will join the Ducklings between 18 to 28 months, although we will work closely with you to decide when they are ready to move between rooms based on their development.
At this critical stage of their development, we will support your child as they start to learn more about the world around them and begin to develop their independence and confidence.
We know that every child develops at a different rate, so we treat them like an individual to support them as they grow.
Your child will have their own key person, who will get to know their interests, strengths and weaknesses. They will track their development and use this to design activities based around them and their progress.
The Ducklings Room has direct access to the outdoor play area, which they use every day.
We know that some children prefer to learn outdoors, so the spectacular play area helps them to learn, play and grow in the best place for them.
This is a key point in your child's emotional development and we support them as they start learning to manage their feelings and relationships with peers.
