I don’t think any parent or child would have escaped noticing we have recently had ducklings at the nursery! It has been even better than we hoped, it has been very educational and all the children and staff alike have thoroughly enjoyed it.

We worked with a company called Incredible Eggs and they arrived just a day or so before they were planned to hatch. You can see both videos here of the ducks arriving in this world and then having lots of fun splashing and swimming in our little home-made pond.

The children learnt about everything from the cycle of life, to why they need water to what they eat and how to keep them clean and happy. We really hope your child talked about them at home and enjoyed seeing them for a few days.

All the ducklings have now been rehomed to a wonderful farm in Hazel Grove – where they have lots of space to roam and splash in a big pond.
