About

Welcome to Mother Duck Child Care Bracken Ridge

Our Bracken Ridge team believes in building warm, trusting relationships with each child and family, as well as our local community. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the children in our care and work to develop a positive disposition to lifelong learning. Our programs, from the nursery through to our kindergarten, provide children with the opportunities and experiences to foster individual learning and development as they progress through their years.

We know that the first five years shape your child’s development and learning for life. That’s why our daily programs are thoughtfully designed for intellectual, emotional, social and physical wellbeing and development. Curiosity, creativity and exploration are encouraged in a safe and supportive environment.

This strong foundation helps foster a lifelong love of learning.

I was apprehensive about starting my child in daycare and spent many hours searching for the best. From the moment I walked into Mother Duck at Bracken Ridge I felt at ease, everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the environments were clean and inviting. They could answer all of my questions with ease and professionalism. You can see the bonds between the educators and the children and also between the staff. Their philosophy surrounding children makes perfect sense and is evident throughout the centre. I am so glad that we chose Mother Duck for our little boy, I could not imagine him being anywhere else (and you won’t either) 💕

There is not one single thing I could fault about Mother Duck Bracken Ridge. This place is not just a daycare, it’s family. Whether it’s your first day entering the centre or it’s changing within studios, transitions are made so comfortably for both children and parents, taking away any doubts and minimising children being traumatised during the process.The educators who work here are so hands on and invested in the children, they truly show the difference between educators who love doing what they do vs educators who are only working for the money. These educators have made a beautifully big impact on my children’s life where my children are still talking about their teachers out of daycare hours. Everything at Mother duck Bracken Ride is made easy.. Drop offs are made easy, Toilet training is made easy, communication is made easy, friendships are easily made and the environment is made to feel like home once you walk in! The directors are soo understanding in all aspects, from financial to there caring of your children. This centre is AMAZING! If my review can’t help you decide whether or not this daycare centre is for your child, just know I wouldn’t take my kids elsewhere no matter how much money was offered. :)

MDBR has created such a beautiful welcoming environment, from the moment you walk through the door there is always a smiling face to greet you. The educators are so caring and really take the time each morning to listen and understand my child’s needs for the day. There is amazing communication between families and the educators. My son absolutely adores his educators and will happily go for a cuddle each morning. I couldn’t recommend this centre enough.

The educators here are so great with my baby. He loves them and enjoys spending time here. He doesn’t even cry during drop offs after a week of starting, waves bye to us and can’t wait to start playing. Gabrielle the director here is very helpful and lovely! She is also very very organised. It makes a huge difference when a centre is well organised, not just in terms of layout but with staffing, door codes, and how communication with parents are managed. It may seem hard having to prepare food for your kids everyday, but after sending him to a daycare that doesn’t provide food, I actually prefer preparing it as I know and can see what my baby is actually eating. Unfortunately we had to move house to sunnybank hills, otherwise would like to keep my son with them for as long as possible.

Family and community focused childcare with a professional and dedicated team of educators who truly care about the children 🥰 Long term educators and large open spaces allowing the children to explore during all day indoor and outdoor play. The foyer area is just stunning and the ambiance is beautiful!!

Mother Duck Bracken Ridge has been a fantastic experience for our family from day 1. We moved our youngest child here for kindy, ahead of starting prep in January 2021, and wish we had done so earlier! The staff are highly attentive, and go out of their way to get to know your child - and other family members - personally. This really helped with our child settling in and making new friends quite quickly. An added bonus is that this centre is always kept neat, tidy and that the owners Gabby and Megan have gone the extra mile to make it feel homely for the children. The centre is highly organised and the children are instilled with the same values and manners good parents expect.

Cannot review these guys highly enough. Both management and staff are super amazing. Friendly, accomodating and it shows they really love what they do and do it so well. My little boy started here when he was only 4/5 months and I honestly can say from day one I felt happy walking away after drop off knowing he was in excellent caring and safe hands. So grateful I found Mother Duck Childcare Bracken Ridge ❤️
