About Us

Welcome to Ducklings Childcare where we aim to provide the highest quality childcare for children in Kirklees in a secure, homely and healthy learning environment.

Ducklings Childcare is privately owned by Lisa Hannington. Lisa was a registered nurse and midwife and has three children of her own. In April 2007, she decided to start Ducklings as she could not find flexible, quality childcare for her own children. She originally worked from her home address with two assistants. One of these assistants, Sarah White is now the Manager of Ducklings Childcare.

In June 2019 we moved into new premises on Wakefield Road, Moldgreen, opposite Lidl so we could expand our business.  We now have five childrens rooms, a commercial kitchen, a sensory/sleeping room, a private meeting room which is also used for one to one activities,  a cloak room, parking and a wonderful outside play area with open ended natural resources.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and prepare our children to become school ready.  We offer transitional visits to local schools and invite other settings to visit our setting.

We are currently working towards our Soil Association Food for Life Early Years Award.

In 2010 our setting was chosen to take part in the government led Every Child A Talker (ECAT) project and we continue to use the resources and skills we gained from this on a daily basis.  Communication, Language and Literacy are high up on our agenda in the setting and we promote this by listening to children, parents, carers and staff, ensuring all our mealtimes are social occasions, being good role models for all users of our setting and ensuring everyone has a voice.  We do not have any televisions, dvd players or computers to ensure that the children are encouraged to communicate and build on their confidence and personal, social and emotional development.
