What Our Community Says
We LOVE Duck's Nest! The teachers are amazing. They make the classroom warm, welcoming and safe. And they have such creative ideas.
Duck's Nest teachers are so patient, caring, professional, personal and taking time to "teach" me so I can learn.
We walked into Duck's Nest and were immediately taken in by the beautiful grounds -- redwood trees, large play area with varied, inviting structures, a sand box our son loves too much.
I love, love, love Duck's Nest. It's hard to find words that can come close to describing how much love, appreciation, and deep gratitude I have for this school.
I was truly stunned by the level of affection and attention afforded my little girl when she came in at age three. When our second baby was born, she was welcomed and cuddled by the other children and staff. I felt so happy to have the support and kindness of this entire cadre of instructors who dedicate their lives to the enrichment of the littlest citizens.
