Our mission and vision 

How it all began – Sian’s story

As I waved goodbye to my colleagues and headed off on maternity leave in July 2003, I had every intention to return to my finance job in the city. My daughter Abbie was born in September 2003 and as I looked around local nurseries, I realised that there was no way on earth that I would leave my precious bundle with them. There was a real lack of good quality nurseries around my local town. Hey presto-Dizzy Ducks was born.

Our mission

‘Treat every child as if they are our own’

What was clear then, and remains in the forefront of our ethos now, is that our children should be at the heart of everything that we do. Our children are the most important people in the world. They deserve to be encouraged, nurtured, supported and loved. When we come to work, we ask ourselves “Would we want this for our own children, or family members?”

Investing in our people

Team development is very important to us and our children are benefiting from our Training Academy. This initiative has meant that we have better trained and higher motivated team members who realise that we believe in their potential enough to invest in their continued professional development. Regularly reflecting on our practice allows us to benefit from a continued cycle of self-development and improvement.

Our future

In 10 years, I have seen the nursery grow to five nurseries and a Head Quarters, with 140 team members. Our plan is to ensure that our five nurseries are the best that they can be, providing excellent childcare for our families.

Our children and families remain at the heart of what we do. Underneath it all I’m just a working mum, who wanted the best early years care possible for her children, and now want to provide that to other mums too.

I hope you want to join our team and look forward to hearing from you soon.

What Our Team Say...

Vicki is always professional, cheerful and on top of things which as parents we find very reassuring. Extra touches such as phone calls to say teddy had been left behind by accident (which could have made bedtime tricky!) demonstrate a high level of commitment and thoughtfulness which is much appreciated. On a few occasions when Benedict has been away due to illness Vicki has sent texts enquiring after him which are nice to receive and again demonstrate a high level of commitment.
