- Our People
One of the reasons Ducklings has remained so successful is its management strategy: find people who are passionate, give them the tools to create, and watch them succeed. We've formulated the same strategy for our franchisees.
To us, a partnership means that both sides benefit. When you jump on board, our partnership is just beginning. The support and guidance given to Ducklings childcare franchisees is provided by those who have built the business. We're not salespeople. Each member of our franchise team has first-hand exposure to the steps that franchisees walk through.

We Show You The Ropes
You don't have to be a teacher to own a Ducklings' franchise - or a duck.
We help you to build a team of degreed teachers and encouraging management. Owners of Ducklings Early Learning Centers have an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for impacting the lives of the children in their community. They also like to have fun at work.
We're fun - lots of fun! And let's be real, fun is contagious! Our teachers use individual, creative, activities to teach children the art of learning through play. Children are actively engaged, continuously growing and discovering that learning is fun. This breeds happy teachers, happy staff, happy kids and ultimately, happy families.
Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.
