For those passionate about making a difference in the lives of young learners, a career with Ducklings offers a unique blend of rewards that extend far beyond the classroom.

Personal Fulfillment and Impact

Working at Ducklings means being part of a family where we cherish each child’s first 5 years and acknowledge them as the cornerstone for lifelong success. Our educators experience the joy of watching children try new things, celebrate their accomplishments, and learn the value of friendship and teamwork. “Working in childcare not only gives you a stable career, but you get to work in an environment filled with all of the fun activities from your childhood memories that you used to love and create those memories for the children you teach,” Miss Gabby stated about her experience working at Ducklings Early Learning Center. 

Professional Development Opportunities

Ducklings is proud to be a women-owned and family-run establishment with a corporate team of women who have been integral to our growth. This nurturing spirit extends to our staff, offering a supportive environment for professional growth. Our educators, diverse in education and degrees in early childhood learning, are given the tools and training to understand and foster each child’s unique learning journey.

The sense of community at Ducklings is palpable. We believe in teaching the whole child, placing play at the heart of our educational philosophy. This approach fosters a close-knit environment where children, families, and educators build lasting relationships based on mutual respect and shared joy in learning.

Diverse Work Environment

Our innovative “Here We Grow!” and “Off We Grow” curriculums, complemented by carefully curated libraries and gyms, ensure that no two days are the same. Educators have the freedom to create enriching, creative experiences that allow children to explore the world around them, gain confidence, and make new friends.

Benefits and Support for Staff

The Role in Early Childhood Education

Our educators play a pivotal role in early childhood education, fostering a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Through our unique curriculum, “Shake A Tail Feather,” children engage in activities that develop balance, coordination, strength, and teamwork, highlighting the importance of physical activity in holistic development.

Making a Difference in the Community

Ducklings Early Learning Centers contribute significantly to the local community by providing essential services to families and nurturing the next generation of learners and leaders. Our commitment to holistic development ensures that every child is prepared for the future, both academically and socially.

Lifelong Learning

A career at Ducklings is a journey of lifelong learning, not only for the children but for our educators as well. We stay abreast of the latest educational research and pedagogical strategies, ensuring we equip our team to offer the best early childhood education.

Work-Life Balance

Our schools are open Monday through Friday and closed on major holidays, so our teachers and assistants have built-in personal time to their calendars. We understand the importance of work-life balance. Our educators enjoy the benefits of a career that aligns with the school year, offering a schedule supporting their professional responsibilities and personal time. Hear from Miss Chrissy from our Longwood location, “For me, it’s being flexible and creative. Also, your schedule is set, which balances your home and work life. Not to mention, I bring my kids!!”
