My two children have been at Dizzy Ducks since they were 9 months old and I couldn't ask for a more caring, supportive yet challenging environment for them. Right from when they were babies they have been loved and supported in their development. Whilst the care has always been first rate and the opportunities they have had outstanding, the real value in my opinion was the year before school. In a small group (compared to some other preschools) my son was given first rate preparation for his transition to school. I have recently given up work and no longer need the same extent of childcare for my daughter but have made the decision to remain with Dizzy Ducks so that she can have the same excellent preschool environment as my son.
