I just love how happy my granddaughter is about "her" daycare she teaches me the songs she learns while she's there and the twinkle in her eyes when she talks about her time there . These young ladies are special because my granddaughter was on the introverted side and now she's getting more outgoing and silly. Thank you Little Ducky Daycare

My beautiful granddaughter is very well taken care of and doesn't want to leave when I pick her up the staff is so wonderful and attentive to her and her little friends she's made since being there for over a year...I can't say enough about little duckys day care ..I finally found a place that was perfect for my peace of mind..she can't wait to go back every morning ..I would give a rating of a 20 if allowed but I gave it a five the highest for the best around our neighborhood and in South Philly in my opinion

All I can say about the negative reviews on this page is that everyone isn't for everybody and you can't make everyone happy. This place is an amazing place to send your children. The owner must be doing something right that she's been in business for 20 years. It's even a better place to work. The owner is a South Philly native and is direct and to the point. She is a strong woman and always cares about the children. Don't let these few silly reviews change your mind about sending your kid(s) here. The place is so clean you could eat off the floors and the kids learn so much. It's about your kids growth and happiness and the people at little duckies are 100% about that. It's not about masks and a Biden by the news because the news told you to do something.

The owner is a psychopath that has her own personal agenda. She constantly lies to the parents and treats her staff like crap. She very recently lost her entire staff because she creates such a hostile work environment. The present staff was hired so quickly I doubt they are certified.
They are hard working and try their best. The owner is nuts though.

Our son was enrolled since August 2020 and his younger brother since June 2021. The abridged reason for my review is that we have abruptly withdrawn them after observing multiple violations of the handbook / Covid protocols by the business owner, putting our children at direct risk and even resulting in a Covid positive case for my son.

Krista and Veronica, the directors at the center, are amazing - kind and compassionate, creative with daily activities, focused on education, committed to communication with parents and genuinely care about the kids.

The rest of the staff is caring and all take their role seriously. From what I can tell, the staff also adheres to the safety protocols.

The owner, Lisa, however, is quite the opposite - sometimes combative, and when she's not, she's passive aggressive, zero communication skills, doesn't exercise good decision making, lacks care and compassion for the children, and shows a pattern of disrespect of the parents and her staff.

She reacted to us withdrawing the kids by posting on her personal Facebook about us. Her Facebook is a treasure trove of her public anti-mask posts. Her post said "I opened the door Friday at the daycare to give a parent their child and I was not wearing a mask and she took both kids out of my center. I am scared for our future." As if we were ridiculous for reacting to multiple violations of her own handbook which actually resulted in a positive test for our son and another child at the center in a different class.

We also found out after the fact that two weeks prior to our son's case there was an "isolated case" that we were never told about.

If you look up the daycare on the state website you will see repeated violations where she does not obtain the proper clearances and does not keep the proper health and safety protocols. One specifically sites the lack of adherence to the mask protocol. At the time of this review, her license is listed as provisional due to these violations.

I can only speak to my experience though and will focus purely on my reason for the review and for pulling our children out of the center.

The protocols require that all staff wear a mask at all times. We observed a few instances (4 at least) of the owner not wearing a mask while in the center. This past Friday I observed her without a mask while she was holding my 10 month old. I asked Lisa if there was a reason she doesn't wear a mask. After some shock, eye shifting and delayed response, she looked me in the eyes and said "oh it would probably just fall off". This is not an acceptable answer to give another adult who pays for your services which include following the agreed upon handbook and covid protocols. The next morning we pulled our kids out.

I told her I thought it was disrespectful to her staff to not wear a mask when the rest of them take great care to follow the protocols. She told me that the staff's masks fall off all the time and that they don't wear it correctly 100% of the time. This just furthers the disrespect to the parents and the staff that we should accept this response and that her staff should be accused of not following the protocols when they do.

If you decide to send your child here, know that they will be cared for on a daily basis by some amazing humans (the teachers) but subject to the unprofessionalism, hypocrisy, disrespect and risk that comes with owner Lisa.

If she wants to run her business as the anti vax/anti mask daycare, that's fine with me, she has that right. but be transparent with the parents so they know what they are getting into.
