Muddy Puddles children's day nursery in Hertfordshire is committed to providing the best possible Early Years environment for your child.
Our dedicated staff will cherish and nurture your child, encouraging them to develop friendships, independence, curiosity and, most importantly of all, to have fun! Children attending Muddy Puddles are cared for in one of four rooms, moving between these as they achieve developmental milestones, loosely reached in line with their age. Resources and activities within each room are aimed at encouraging further development within the seven key areas of learning and development. Additional equipment and resources within the four rooms are aimed at extending and supporting the key areas defined in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Messy play, painting, gluing, mark-making, baking, stories, construction, threading, imaginative play and dressing up are amongst the indoor activities which are all enjoyed across the nursery on a regular basis along with singing, music and dancing which are supported on a weekly basis by our external partners Jelly Beans, Music Box, 1st Kicks and Fun French.
Uniquely situated in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, we endeavour to make the most of our rural surroundings to enhance your child’s development through outdoor play and learning, be it joining together for a nursery picnic, discovering creepy crawlies on a woodland walk or watching awestruck as an incubated chick emerges from its shell, our aim is to fill your child’s nursery days with exciting experiences and challenges.
Mealtimes at Muddy Puddles are a happy, social occasion for children and staff alike. All our food is prepared and cooked daily on site by our chef and we offer a healthy, balanced diet as well as meeting individual needs and preferences

I previously worked at North Weald Pre-School & Day Nursery, where I worked for four years. I completed my Level 3 in childcare in 2010 and started in the company as a nursery nurse. I ran the baby room followed by the nursery room before being promoted to Assistant Manager. I enjoy watching our nursery develop and grow.
