A very warm welcome to Muddy Puddles Pre-School…

We are a much loved not-for-profit pre-school that has been successfully operating in Surbiton for
over 18 years. Since September 2017 we’ve been located in Long Ditton. In July 2020 we rebranded
from Stepping Stones Pre-School to Muddy Puddles Pre-School.
At Muddy Puddles we believe that positive early childhood experiences are invaluable to shape
children’s approach towards learning. We encourage the children to be curious, imaginative, independent and, most of all, to love learning! The children can access a rich play environment with a free-flow garden and use our amazing location to explore outdoors.

Outdoor Learning…

Muddy Puddles is situated on a spacious Cricket Field surrounded by the woodland area, Stokes
Field Natural Reserve. Outdoor learning is an important part of the curriculum at Muddy Puddles.
The children have ample opportunities to spend time in the natural environment whether playing in the garden area, which is open in all weathers, or exploring the local area during our walks.

Nature Club

Thanks to our location, we have embraced what nature offers as a learning environment. We have a forest school ethos and have weekly ‘Nature Club’ sessions where the children are encouraged to build dens, use tools, make camp fires, toast marshmallows and role play in nature’s classroom.

Wide open space

With Stokes Field on our doorstep and no traffic or pollution to worry about we have an amazing space we can use for playing, exploring and learning throughout the year.

Cooking Club

Alongside the Nature Club we run a regular cooking club for the children.
