What our parents say
We believe that parent and carer feedback is our best way to judge how we are caring for your child.
Here are some of the things that our parents at have said…
"My daughter started at Puddleducks when she was 18 months for 2 mornings. The transition was seamless & she settled well with the help of the fantastic staff! I've been very pleased with the nursery & staff and feel confident when I drop off my excited daughter who enjoys so much & has made some delightful friends. The feedback from staff is excellent and on her progress, food and learning all fantastic. Thank you!"
Jane Burgess - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
"Toad Hall Puddleducks is not only a fantastic nursery but more importantly it has a family atmosphere with the children at the heart of it. The baby unit staff are brilliant and whilst they can't remove the feeling of guilt as a parent you feel, seeing your child so well cared for and so happy makes a massive difference. The activities are imaginative and stimulating, with some brilliant keepsakes for parents and the outdoor areas are a fantastic facilities and tailored to all age groups. All the staff are friendly, approachable, and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery"
Kate Jordan - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
""The staff genuinely care about each child and their needs and likes and they excel in nurturing them. I love the choice of food and that they learn about where food comes from. The variety of activities, which is carefully suited to the child's age group and/or ability. The support and flexibility shown to parents is excellent as well as the communication between staff, parents and with the children.""

Caroline Steel - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
"Great nursery! The children get involved in lots of varied activities which all help them learn through play. Friendly and caring staff, good food, rural setting, all of which make it a great choice. I've used Puddleducks since 2009 for both of my children, best pre-school childcare option by far in the area!"
Sarah Khan - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
"My children have been at Puddleducks for over 2 years and they absolutely love it. The facilities are excellent, especially the outdoor space which the children get out into all the time. The staff are superb and have built very close relationships between both children and myself. They're great at continuing at nursery whatever I've been working on at home - they helped make potty training very easy. They know each child so well from giving my baby just the right muslin to knowing my 3-year-old's penchant for saving the world from dinosaurs. There's a real family feel to the nursery and I would highly recommend it to anyone."
Heather Holloway - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
"My son started at 13 months in the Beehive and since then progressed to Ladybirds as he is now 2 yrs 2 months. The staff have helped with transition periods and worked with me as we have had times of tears! The staff have done great work with his confidence and helping him settle in. The staff are honest with you on all aspects which means a lot. He is one happy little boy. The menu and recipes are fantastic for him. Thanks to all."
Charlotte Carter - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
"My husband and I are delighted with the level of care our son receives at Puddleducks. Our son is extremely happy there and often doesn't want to come home as he is having so much fun. Every day our son takes part in varying activities from painting, growing plants and even learning Spanish as well as singing, reading, messy play and outdoor activities. We feel very lucky to have found the 'perfect' nursery for our son and are safe in the knowledge that when we drop him off each day, he is being looked after by the most brilliant nursery nurses. "
Tabby Barnes - Parent from Bedford - Colmworth
""My children love the outside facilities and space. The food is well thought out and beautifully prepared. The nursery staff in Owls are fabulous. My daughter in Owls can be less confident and they have definitely helped to build her confidence.""
