Pre-School Education & Nursery Wrap Around Care

Welcome to Gresford Playgroup Ducks and Ducklings

Gresford Playgroup Ducks and Ducklings, formerly Gresford Pre-School Playgroup, has been offering childcare in the village for over 50 years. Our wraparound setting for children starting school part-time in the nursery has been running since 1994.


Although we use the school premises (The Cedar Rooms) and have the full support of All Saints’ School, we are independent and entirely self-supporting.  A voluntary elected Committee manages Gresford Playgroup Ducks and Ducklings, which has registered charity status.


We employ experienced, caring, friendly and well qualified staff to look after the children.  All staff are DBS checked and trained in paediatric first aid, safeguarding and food hygiene.


We work closely with Mr Hatwood and the Foundation Phase staff in school to ensure that there is a consistency in our approach which, in turn, helps the children feel settled and secure in their surroundings.


The children undertake different activities each day and we have access to a secure, enclosed outside area which we encourage the children to use at each session.


We are able to offer wraparound care to all children starting nursery at All Saints’ School and so have sessions available Monday - Friday during term time.


8.50 am – 12.35 pm for children attending afternoon nursery and

11.30 am – 3.05 pm for children attending morning nursery


Children attending morning nursery are escorted safely across to The Cedar Rooms by the Nursery staff at 11.30 am.  All children bring their own packed lunch and both groups eat their lunch together until 12.35 pm when the children attending afternoon nursery are escorted across to school to be handed over to the care of the Nursery staff.


Please get in touch for more information by emailing us:


We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming your little ones into our relaxed, happy, caring and safe environment.
