From the beginning, founders Ros and Denis Hinton played a hands-on role in building Mother Duck’s reputation for excellence in early childhood education and care. Ros worked as Director of the centre for nine years before retiring. Denis continued on to lead the company and remains at the helm today as Chairman of the Board.
Since Mother Duck began, Ros and Denis Hinton have been determined to provide the highest standard of childcare in Brisbane. They firmly believe that outstanding care could only be provided by happy, professional and loyal staff.
A culture of genuine appreciation and focus on professional development and satisfaction is now at the very core of Mother Duck Childcare and has proven to be the strong foundation that Ros & Denis envisioned years ago.
Chairman of the Board and Founder
Over the years, Mother Duck Childcare has expanded to offer care across 12 locations. While the company has grown, the purpose and values it was founded on have remained constant.
Today, the Mother Duck leadership team still works within the centres every day, just as Ros Hinton did when Mother Duck began. This hands-on leadership style is now a hallmark of the company, helping create a sense of community throughout the centres.
