About the employer

Ducklings Childcare is set in a beautifully converted Georgian townhouse in central Godmanchester, with wonderful views over the River Great Ouse. We offer care all year round, term time only, before and after school and also during the holidays.

Children aged four months to three years are based in the main house, with spacious rooms for playing, cosy sleeping areas and a homely kitchen. Three to four year olds move out to our dedicated pre-school rooms, across the yard from the main house.

Stimulating learning opportunities and planned purposeful play activities enable our children to become self-motivated and independent learners indoors and out in the extensive walled gardens with beautiful lawns and fruit trees.
