About Us

Tucked away in the beautiful Hertfordshire village of Sarratt, Ducklings Pre-School has been inspiring, teaching and caring for your children for more than thirty years. Our highly experienced team of qualified staff are not only excellent role models, but their dedication and commitment means they have had the unique opportunity of nurturing whole generations of children from the community and beyond.

Our safe and happy learning environment includes plenty of outside space – featuring a mud kitchen, an allotment, Gruffalo Wood, climbing frame and a large canopied area for outdoor play, no matter what the weather. Our location, within the extensive grounds of Sarratt Church of England Primary School, also means we benefit from all the resources the school has to offer.

Ducklings is registered with OFSTED under the 1989 Children Act and is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. We are a non-profit making organisation and received charitable status in 1995 (Reg. Charity No. 1048712).

We are proud of our achievements and believe that we can offer your child:

  • A safe, secure and stimulating environment. Fun and friendship with children and adults.
  • Individual care and attention, made possible by the support of a personal Keyworker.
  • An opportunity to develop at his/her own pace, through a specially tailored curriculum.
  • Early reading and writing skills and recognition of numbers and number concepts.

Mission Statement

At Ducklings we welcome and support parents and their children, developing mutual trust.  Children’s development in all aspects of learning is supported through planned, structured and age appropriate activities and child led play.
