Welcome to Mother Duck Child Care Bracken Ridge

Our Bracken Ridge team believes in building warm, trusting relationships with each child and family, as well as our local community. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the children in our care and work to develop a positive disposition to lifelong learning. Our programs, from the nursery through to our kindergarten, provide children with the opportunities and experiences to foster individual learning and development as they progress through their years.

Centre Features

  • Yoga and Mindfulness classes with Kate twice a week with all children across all studios. These sessions form a critical part of our educational program and they are at no extra cost to families.

  • Ginger Soccer with Coach Chris every Friday in our 3–5-year-old Kindergarten Studio at no extra cost to families. Soccer with us is positive and nurturing, in a safe environment for your child whilst teaching coordination and teamwork with an energetic and positive vibe.

  • Music program with Danny, a local musician who facilitates a music program each week on Wednesday afternoons. This is all-inclusive and paid for by the Centre to ensure that all children have access to the benefits of music.

  • Story time with Tenille from "Teaspoon Storytime" who brings her passion for literacy through stories and songs with the magic of books. This is offered across all age groups each week at no extra cost to families.

What Other Parents Have to Say

No matter what challenges my family have presented to them (Allergies, Medical conditions, an anxious mum to name the least!), the girls have always meet us with patience, understanding and reassuring smile.

We absolutely love our Mother Duck centre! The centre has been extremely supportive of Isla’s requirements which has greatly lessened any concerns we once had about leaving her in the care of others.

The staff are fantastic, they provide an interesting, stimulating and nurturing environment for the children to learn in. Their passion for teaching and education shines every day and I could not recommend Mother Duck enough!

We invite you to visit Mother Duck Bracken Ridge to see the centre and meet our team. Drop by any time, we just ask that you let us know you're coming. happy
