Ducklings Nursery

Woodthorpe School Ducklings Nursery

Welcome to Ducklings Nursery at Woodthorpe School. We take children from the age of 3 and accept both 15 and 30 hour funding and provide wraparound care with a Breakfast and After School Club for our Nursery Children. Parents are also able to pay for additional sessions that are not funded at a rate of £4.70 an hour. You can also use the Government tax free scheme to pay for your sessions.

To see if your child is entitled to 30 hours funded childcare for September 2024 or to renew an existing 30 hour code, please visit and apply before 31st August 2024 (the Government recommends applying as soon as possible).

Our new Nursery building has state of the art facilities. For further information about our activities and curriculum please click on our Nursery brochure below. We have regular school tours if you would like to visit us. These are listed on this web site.
