Welcome to Mother Duck Child Care Eatons Hill
Our educators are dedicated to providing each child with positive experiences from the moment they arrive at our Eatons Hill child care centre through to the moment they leave. Our programs are designed to be engaging and build success for life. We take pride in providing a consistent and nurturing environment that establishes deep connections with children and with their families.
Image of child at Eatons Hill means that our Educators recognise that our children are capable and inquisitive and are deserving of our commitment to their care and education. We are dedicated in providing safe and secure environments where our children can grow as the unique individuals that they are. The rights of all children are upheld in all of our daily interactions across the centre.
We offer Yoga, Music and Movement and Sport Sessions across the week. Our qualified coaches provide opportunities for our children to participate in additional lessons to enhance their development, these provide children with the opportunity to explore and investigate areas within themselves that create confidence, perseverance and creative expression to explore their skills and self-identity further.
Our Approved Kindergarten program focuses on supporting children ages 3-5 years to develop 21st Century Skills. These skills include but are not limited to problem solving, kindness, compassion, decision making and collaboration. Our highly qualified Kindergarten Team of 7 includes 3 Early Childhood Teachers, 2 Lead Educators and 2 Assistant Educators across the week. Our Kindergarten Studio includes key languages such as clay, transient art, mark making and construction. This allows for the children to develop skills that create autonomous leaners who feel a sense of belonging and wellbeing through play as a vehicle to learning.
Here at Mother Duck Eatons Hill, we provide an 8 place Infant Studio with two Educators. The Infant Studio has a separate sleep/rest environment, an outdoor atrium and an outdoor play space. Our small Studio provides our infants with safe and secure relationships with their primary caregivers. There will always be one Educator from Infants between the hours of 7am and 5:30pm to provide continuity of care.
We offer free flowing indoor/outdoor environments at all times throughout the day for all children. Our practices allow children to stimulate their own learning abilities and social interactions. The children are involved in decision making, implementation of ideas and inquiries and cooperative learning. As a result, the children’s increased confidence to share ideas, verbalise knowledge and contribute in both individual and group experiences enhance the children’s social and emotional wellbeing. It creates opportunities for children develop new areas of expertise, develop new relationships and a chance to investigate new and unfamiliar experiences.
We are proud of the longevity of our Educators. We have an array of Early Childhood Educators that have been with Mother Duck for between 5 to 30 years. With this we are able to form strong bonds with families over different generations. Educators have returned to work after maternity leave bringing their own children along to be part of our Mother Duck Family, this is a reflection of the quality of staff, supportive working environment and sense of community Mother Duck Eatons Hill pride themselves on.
