The happiness, wellbeing, development and education of your child is always our highest priority.
We’ve worked hard to become an employer of choice in the child care industry. We offer a highly-regarded professional development program and above-award remuneration. We’re proud to say that we attract and retain some of the best educators in the industry. Through strong bonds with familiar and consistent carers, each child has the opportunity to thrive.
Each of our centres is owned and operated by a franchisee, who is qualified and extensively experienced in the child care industry. This unique business model ensures that the operation of each centre is guided by a professional who is committed to providing the highest quality of early childhood education and care. Many of our franchisees have worked with Mother Duck for many years and have helped shape the values of the company.
Our Mother Duck leadership team is passionate and involved, working at a Mother Duck centre every single day.
Bindi joined Mother Duck in 2022, coming full circle as a parent of a child who attended the Manly Mother Duck service back in 2002. Bindi began her career working as an educator in early learning services for 12 years before taking up the role of an Authorised Officer for the Department of Education licensing, monitoring, and assessing quality in services across the Brisbane Metropolitan Region for another 18 years. Following this, Bindi worked with Inclusion Support QLD supporting early learning services to develop inclusive strategies and environments for all children before joining Mother Duck in 2022.
Bindi is dedicated to working with each of our Mother Duck services to support the delivery of high-quality, culturally appropriate, and inclusive education and care for all children in environments that not just meet legislative compliance but consistently exceed requirements to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of every child.
Bindi believes that by conducting regular support visits to each Mother Duck service, and collaboratively tailoring the operational support each leadership team receives that all Mother Duck services will build their capacity to continue to achieve the highest quality outcomes for all families and children.
All the operational decisions for Mother Duck Childcare Centres are made by the Mother Duck Management Committee. The Committee is made up of 12 seats, with each seat holding the same vote. There are currently 10 Centres, and each Centre holds one seat, the Board Chairman holds one seat, and the CEO holds one seat.
There is no right of veto on any decisions. The seats held by the Centres are held by the Centre Franchisees who work in the centres as Nominated Supervisors, and also all hold early childhood qualifications with substantial industry experience.
