It is our belief at Little Munchkins that we should be an extension to a loving homelike environment for all who use the Service.
We strive daily to develop and maintain an open and supportive communication with all individuals and families that use or visit the Service.
We believe that sound relationships with families is central to ensuring continuity and progression in a child’s learning and ongoing development.
The learning environment is planned to embrace diversity and encourage a positive attitude toward gender, ethnicity, cultural diversity, individual family structure, difference in physical ability and the natural environment.

We also view the Service as a “Pre- School with longer hours”. The environment should incorporate stimulating, challenging materials and experiences (either planned or spontaneous) for children that are child directed as well as intentionally taught by all educators.
Our educators aim to maintain ongoing training and professional development. Through ongoing assessment and reflection on our actions and practices we are able to identify areas of strengths and areas that may require further development.
Our staff and educators are a great asset to the Service and we continue to ensure that their work environment is a safe and rewarding one.
Finally, it is our strongest belief that when you care for and nurture young children, all educators and staff members must maintain a healthy and positive sense of humour that is readily shared amongst themselves, the children and families.
