Our fully-trained team provide experienced, high-quality Early Years care, based on the Foundation Stage curriculum. Pre-School staff work as a well-suited team, constantly updating our knowledge by taking courses, gaining information and enjoying assistance from Northamptonshire’s Early Years advisors. We joined the Pre-School Learning Alliance for their expert help and guidance.
Our philosophy is based on providing a place for children to feel secure as they learn in our welcoming environment. We also wish to help and appreciate parents and, after some discussion, found most parents wish to pay for only hours children attend; yet other establishments charge for complete sessions, beyond actual hours. Our fees take this into consideration.
Establishing a pre-school in 2012
Our Pre-School is named 'Little Ducklings' after the ducklings that inhabit the local stream and are still present at nearby Barnwell Picnic Park. Our building is located in Barnwell’s former school, within easy reach of Oundle and villages. Our setting benefits Barnwell by providing new life and opportunity with the school building, yet again, used for its original purpose of child education.
