Welcome to the Ducklings Montessori Website

A fulfilled child is a happy child.  Our purpose is to help each child take his or her first steps towards self-fulfilment.

We aim to generate security, trust and independence in each child

We encourage every child to be polite, considerate and kind

The Montessori mathematical apparatus offers children the opportunity to hold, count and manipulate objects.

Physical development is inherent in all the activities carried out at Ducklings

All children take part in self-chosen arts and craft activities, and music and movement play
