Ofsted registered, professional childcare for babies and children in an Outstanding school.

Welcome Parents

A very warm welcome to Ducklings Day Care.

In 2018, Ofsted graded West Cornforth Nursery and Primary School ‘Outstanding’. They recognised our two-year-old provision quickly helps children develop high levels of independence, confidence and positive attitudes to learning. Staff expectations and effective modelling enable children to promptly settle into routines and engage in activities. Our provision supports learning across a wide range of areas and helps children to be much better prepared to move into Nursery. Therefore, in 2020, in response to the growing needs of parents, we welcomed babies into our happy, successful nursery setting. We now offer day care, wrap around and holiday care every day apart from the Christmas period and Bank Holidays.

As a parent myself, I understand choosing a nursery for your child is an extremely important decision. I can assure you we provide a happy, safe environment in which children can grow and develop. We encourage social interaction, confidence, emotional well-being, as well as physical control and intellectual progression.

Please do not hesitate to contact the office for more information and arrange a visit. On behalf of myself and the Ducklings team, we look forward to meeting you and your family.
