Little Ducks Day Nursery
Little Ducks Day Nursery is situated in St Peter's Street, Lowestoft, close to East Coast College's Lowestoft Campus. It's open daily (Mon-Fri) from 8am to 5.30pm, except bank holidays, inset days and the Christmas period and offers day care for up to 38 children aged 6 weeks to 5 years.
The nursery has 3 rooms: the Baby Room for 0-2 year olds, the Toddler Room for 2-3 year olds and the Playroom for the 3-5 year olds. This allows practitioners to focus on the learning needs of the individual curriculum stages (see Curriculum Stages - 0-2 Years, Curriculum Stages - 2-3 Years and Curriculum Stages - 3-5 Years). All the rooms have access to the nursery garden, which has climbing equipment, room for riding trikes, a mud kitchen, sand and digging pits, space for water play and a quiet area for relaxing or reading.
In its latest Ofsted inspection (February 2017) the nursery was found to be 'Good' in all areas. Inspectors found that the “Staff provide stimulating environments and children of all ages demonstrate that they are happy and feel safe. Staff praise children as they recognise their efforts and achievements. This helps to raise their confidence and self-esteem.”
Fees range from £19.80 per half day to £39.90 for full day care. Download our fees and sessional info sheet for more information.
