Kirsty, Area Manager

"Ducklings is an amazing company to work for being a small family run business that has been operating for over 23 years. In the 5 years I have worked with ducklings they have helped me do my level 3, become a deputy and now I have been given the opportunity to become manager and run my own site. The owners and area managers are always at hand to help and give support whenever you need it!"

Jade, Manager

"My manager had a positive impact on my decision to join the nursery on a permanent basis. She is encouraging, approachable and very helpful. Whenever I have queries, she always responds thoughtfully without getting frustrated. Over time I have realised how lucky I am to be working with a team who always believes in me and how this makes me feel confident and return I aim to please even more. I have learnt so much in my time at the nursery and I am very thankful to management for having given me this opportunity. They are very understanding, kind and treat their employees equally and fairly!"

Ducklings Preschool Milton Keynes

"I enjoy working at Ducklings because I have been supported in different roles and given fantastic opportunities.


During my time here at Ducklings I have enjoyed every moment, through all the ups and downs, thanks to all the support we have.

I have had plenty of opportunities to advance my knowledge through online and in person training. Since stepping into my management role i have seen a different side of things, we have a very supportive and friendly management team and it’s great we can all share and bounce ideas of one another...

...We also support each other which is great in having a team of managers so I don’t feel like I’m alone in this. I am always acknowledged for my hard work and dedication and if I ever need help or advice there is always someone I can contact. I enjoy coming into work everyday due to the fact I do have a great team that I work within and of course the little Ducklings!

My voice is heard and ideas are welcomed, and above all else achievements are noticed and we are made to feel appreciated.

"A Friendly and welcoming environment to work within. You become a valid member and are included as part of the team. The kids were kind and accepted help when needed. A Lovely company to work for, great kids, great atmosphere, lovely employees - made some great friends, really good set up, learnt so much, so sad to leave."

"Managers are great and listen to staff. They are always ready with advice and support. There's a relaxed feel and the staff members get on well and work as hard as each other.

There's always someone to help you out with a tricky task and people willing to take over a role e.g song time, if something comes up for you"

"Working for ducklings this past year and a half has been the best in my career, I have made great relationships with the children and within the team. We have great structure and communication and work well together; the children seem happy, and content and I love being able to show my childish side sometimes at work making all the children laugh with my silly voices. I have found my passion working with children and Ducklings gave me that opportunity which I will forever be grateful for.

"I've absolutely loved working for Ducklings Preschool. They've given me an incredible opportunity to grow in my career - which I will always be grateful for! 

 

The entire team are all so friendly, approachable, and whenever I've asked for help I get multiple people offering and pitching in - just an amazing culture!


The owners are totally engaged in the company, and only a phone call away whenever I've needed them. Would highly recommend working at Ducklings!"
