There’s nothing cuter than a farmhouse dramatic play center!! What’s your favorite part? Mine would have to be the cute baby cow! 🐮 or maybe it’s all the plants? 🌿🪴 at any rate, your child will feel right at home in our dramatic play center, creating a grocery store, taking care of babies, cooking up the next meal, or even combining fun with the loose parts center next door! Who knows what ideas will be whipped up next!

We could go on and on about how wonderful sensory play is in early childhood education. It’s one of our most favorite activities to explore with the kids. So much so that we have no less than four sensory tables that are open access at all times! And the number keeps growing! We have tables both in the classroom and outside on the playground. We never stop learning and exploring! (Pictured here is a fun recycling sorting activity! This also helps with fine motor and cognitive skills!)

Our last post gave you a sneak peek into our reading center! What’s your favorite part? Ours has got to be the fish bubbler and the Cookie Monster nugget couch! Or is it the rainbow rug? Or could it be the magnet board and the felt board for stories? The basket of puppets? But don’t forget the array of fun books to read! 📚

How many fishy friends do you see? We love having fish in the classroom. There are so many great benefits, from learning about science, to the calming sensory aspects of the bubbles and lazy swimming.

The rain got to our sensory table before our rock quarry set up did, so we had to have some fun splashing and washing the trucks! (Peep that beautiful green grass growing so well! 🙂 )

Our Core Values

Safety - Your childs safety will always be our top priority



Honesty - We will always be honest and transparent



Communication - Your child's village is strengthened by good communication between their parent and caregivers. We use and encourage lots of communication with our families daily.



Grace - We strive to give grace and kindness to all, just as God gives us. We are all human and we all struggle. We hope to be that extra encouragement that helps you get through your day. We want your child to know that here at Puddle Ducks, they can make messes and make mistakes, it's all a part of learning and growing.



Love - God calls us to love one another. We vow to love your precious child as we love our own. Children can not learn if they do not feel loved and safe. We are also excited to share God's love with your little ones.



Integrity - Our moral principles guide us to always do what we believe is right. We take your trust in us very seriously

Our Code of Ethics

* We will keep your child safe at all costs. This includes both physical, mental, and their emotional well being.



* We will be honest, transparent, and hold ourselves accountable when needed.



* We will respect the value and individuality of each child. Every child is different, and every child matters. We will nurture them, and meet them where they are, teaching them in the ways they learn best.



* We will be a safe haven for both children and parents alike. We will do no purposeful harm. We will help support and build up families.



* We will provide an age appropriate atmosphere for learning. We will offer extensive opportunities in multiple different ways for different learning abilities.

Our Philosophy:

Puddle Duck’s philosophy is based on a belief that children of all abilities benefit from an inclusive environment, emphasizing acceptance of individual differences and ability levels. Every child learns in their own way; because each child is unique. Including yours. This is why we don't restrict our academy to just one learning style. We use many different styles of learning techniques to support each child as they branch out and discover new things to learn, in their own ways, at their own pace.



We use a combination of teaching techniques such as Montessori, child lead play, STEAM, teacher guided, group play, loose parts play, sensory discovery, and many others.



Most of all, children learn by DOING. Play is their main job and it's how they learn. Here at Puddle Ducks we understand the importance of hands on learning through play, and we encourage each child to discover and explore their world every day, all the while giving them a safe place to do so.

We also believe that independence, caring for our bodies, life skills, and social skills are key skills that are important for healthy growth, so we practice these skills daily.

The new sod is here for our playground! We are so excited! We’ve been working hard all day laying it out to get beautiful soft green grass growing in our new play space!
