Why Choose Ducklings Montessori Nursery?

Ducklings Montessori Nursery was founded by Julia Jack in September 2002.


It benefits from the wonderful rural setting of Nash and runs on Mondays to Thursdays from the Village Hall. We received an Outstanding Ofsted report in 2014.

Ofsted stated that “Children are enthusiastic and highly motivated to learn because staff listen to and successfully support their individual needs and interests. Staff know them extremely well as individuals and this means they develop confidence in being independent and are very well prepared for school.

Staff have high expectations and offer exciting and challenging activities for them to learn and explore. The use of Montessori resources enhances the children’s learning and the environment.  The quality teaching is outstanding because staff help children to make connections in their learning”


The children have a busy time while they are at the Nurseries and enjoy a wide range of activities including music and movement, cookery, painting, ICT, nature walks, number and language games and lots of wonderful play experiences. Most important of all, Ducklings prides itself in providing children with a happy start to their education.
