Puddleducks’ Nursery and Preschools

0800 NP DUCK (67 3825)

Situated in Western New Plymouth, Barrett Road, Whalers Gate, Puddleducks’ provides the Taranaki with a unique and special Puddleducks’ Experience – “The Puddleducks’ Way”

The centre is licenced for 83 children, in an infant, toddler, preschool and transition to school setting over 4 rooms.

Our point of difference is our emphasis on quality, through inviting and modern environments, in a homely setting with an emphasis on highly trained, engaged and ECE qualified Teachers’ that have a passion for the 0-8 age group. Our pedagogy is based around attachment theory and primary care, and this is emphasised in our Infant and Toddler Spaces. Our preschool spaces are still focused on primary care but are created around child led interests and free play. Our pre-schoolers are encouraged to explore, run, jump, climb, build, paint and become in-tune with the world around them. We have a strong emphasis on Environmental Stewardship and this will develop over time in this centre.
