FOUR CORE VALUE SYSTEM
“Love is patient, kind, not jealous, not boastful, does not demand its own way, not irritable, keeps no record of being wronged, does not rejoice about injustices, rejoices when truth wins, never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance”.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
“But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.”
“So I have reason to be enthusiastic about all Christ Jesus has done through me in my service to God”.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Little Duckling has a history of providing high-quality care and education for over 30 years.
We are elated when we enroll children of parents who attended Little Duckling themselves.

Little duckling daycare has been apart of my life since I was a baby. Mrs. Cindy and Mrs. Joyce have known me my entire life and I have the best memories of them during my time at little duckling and North Star.
When I had my own baby she stayed at home for the first 2 years of her life and I was super anxious about sending her to daycare. Little Duckling was my first choice because they took such great care of me. I’m happy to see that nothing changed over the years. My baby is well taken care of during the day and loves her class and teachers.
I will never go anywhere else!
My mom started me and my sister at Little Duckling Daycare when it was also a school. She chose this daycare for the fact that it was also a school of learning after kindergarten. This place instilled discipline as well as the teachings of the church. This became a family to me. I enjoyed spending weekends with Ms Joyce.
I chose little ducking daycare for Jaida because of the teachings that were given to me as a child and the family atmosphere.
Plus my mom told me little duckling was the place to go!
Attending Little Duckling was the highlight of my childhood. I remember feeling a great sense of home away from home each time I walked through those doors. The amount of time each staff invested into their students was outstanding. They made sure we were on track with our education as well as introducing us to the word of God.
When I had my own little duckling, it was only right I give her the opportunity to have the same experience I once had… and she does. Every day she comes home excited to tell me all the things she’s learned and as well as her wonderful encounters with all her friends. Not only does Little Duckling promote safety and security with my daughter, but they also work with her on her social skills.
I couldn’t be more grateful
