Debbie Hickson

Co-owner and Deputy Manager of Ducklings  Pre- School.  Behaviour Management Co-ordinator, SENCO and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead. After Debbie had her second baby my eldest daughter had a grand mal seizure (tonic clonic). This was where her journey into parenting a child with special needs began and it hasn’t always been easy.When her youngest daughter was two years old she decided  to get back to work - to have some ‘me’ time. She retrained and went to college and completed her NVQ3 in Childcare and Education.

In 2005 Debbie and a friend bought a pre-school that was in rapid decline. They started in 2005 with 7 children on our books and have gone from strength to strength. They have a fantastic reputation for SEN.
