We pride ourselves on providing high quality child care so that parents and families feel confident that their children are in a caring, safe, stimulating and fun environment. Every child is individual and Little Munchkins will adapt to their needs at different ages and stages as well as helping them to set responsible boundaries. As well as providing a safe and caring environment we also provide lots of rich and stimulating educational activities to encourage children's development throughout each of the areas of the E.Y.F.S (Early Years Foundation Stage). Staff at Little Munchkins use an online learning journal called Tapestry, this allows parents and carers to see observations that are carried out at nursery as we want parents and carers to feel involved in every step of their child's learning journey here with us.
