Room to run, climb and play

Our two outdoor play areas in our Manly child care centre are spacious and grassy, with lots of shade from beautiful trees. Sandpits and climbing frames invite children to explore, climb and run. Younger children can venture confidently in their own separate play area.

What Other Parents Have to Say

I couldn’t be more thankful to the Mother Duck team for helping build confidence in my boys.
All of the staff at Mother Duck have been amazing with my son, Alex. He was so warmly welcomed and made to feel at home from day one. We love Mother Duck and are proud to be part of the family.
We trust the educators at Mother Duck Manly and genuinely believe that the children are at the centre of all decision making. We appreciate how our daughter is nurtured, and is never left without a hug. She has expectations to follow routines and her learning goals are tailored to suit her interests, strengths and needs.
