Learning through play

Whilst Duck & Play runs partially structured playgroup sessions, we believe in children learning through play and we allow time in each class for both parents and children to seek support, ask questions or develop relationships.

Why Choose us?

Speech & Language​

Developing their ability to take in information through the 5 senses of touch, smell, taste, see and hear. For example; babies can squish their feet into jelly!

Social & Emotional​

Develops their understanding of their feelings and other people’s feelings and behaviours. For example; teaching kindness through sharing and encouraging positive play. 

Gross Motor​

Developing coordination, muscle strength, posture and endurance. For example; babies and toddlers can build strength and coordination in the pool using an obstacle course and pool mats!

Fine Motor

Developing the coordination of small muscles in their hands controlled by their central nervous system. For example; Toddlers can scoop rice into smaller cups looking for bugs! Pre-schoolers can make pasta necklaces!


Developing intellectual activity through play. For example; babies will explore different objects that are hard, soft, cold + warm. Toddlers can listen for noises!
