When we first opened in 2006 we signed up for the QuILT (Quality Improvement in Learning and Teaching) which was developed by the early years consultants team in the council for early years settings and childminders delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

We progressed through all of the nine modules gaining a credit in each one. We then went on to do the Quilt Gold in 2015, becoming the first setting in Brighton and Hove to achieve the accreditation.

What our parents have said...


I'm an infant school teacher and my 3 kids have all been to this preschool and have loved it. I would highly recommend it. The staff are all parents themselves and create a kind and caring environment in which the children thrive. Professional and engaging environment and activities too means they have all begun school with a great start in their learning.

This is a lovely nursery with traditional values. My daughter has just left Baby ducks after nearly 3 years and has always felt welcomed and loved. They have space to play, lots of things to play with and they get to do lots of creative stuff too. They are happy to hug your child if they are upset yet will also encourage the children to feel independent. My daughter left happy and confident ready to face school in September. Many thanks to all the brilliant staff at Baby ducks.

Our children love going to Baby Ducks nursery. They are happy, safe and love learning. Staff are professional and friendly.
