Ducklings Early Learning Center

Ducklings Pre-school And Extended Day Care where our philosophy and primary goal is to provide your child with quality early education while encouraging kids to be kids.
Duckling’s realistic approach to childhood is sometimes noisy, often messy, but always fun.
We have an abundance of age appropriate materials to help foster exploration and an ultimate feeling of success for all children.
Our certified and degreed teachers have designed age-specific programs to prepare your child for school and teach them important social skills in an environment that is nurturing and fun.
Ducklings takes a child’s work very seriously; providing a secure environment for children to develop age-appropriate skills through exploration and play.
We know that teaching a child to love learning in their first 3 years of life will build a foundation for success in the years to come.
Our certified and degreed teachers create weekly thematic lesson plans to challenge and excite young minds; as well as provide ample playtime in the security of our 2 large play yards.
We even have an indoor gym for when the jitterbugs hit on rainy days! Our mission at Ducklings Early Learning Center is to provide exemplary childcare for the children of Southern Chester County by offering a model program tailored to ensure the quality of a child’s daily experiences.
