From Sarah personally…..

I’ve been there; nearly five years ago I set about trying to find a local nursery to care for my first precious baby boy because I was making the dreaded return to work. It was at this point I realised what a huge position of trust it is to place your baby in the care of a team of people you have just met. It was while looking around nurseries that I realised I could and wanted to create somewhere where I could emulate my high expectations and standards as a parent. I embarked on a two year long journey of planning, meetings, research and many sleepless nights and on June 25th 2012 Puddleducks opened its doors. It has been the most amazing four years and I feel blessed to have met and worked with so many amazing families and my wonderful staff team who all share and practice my values. I now have two incredible boys of my own, both of whom have attended the nursery and I will continue to use them and my values as a parent to set the standards within whathas become my third baby, ‘Puddleducks’.
