School Readiness

The Early Years Learning Framework is an Australian Government initiative, to ensure your child receives high-quality education in the childcare setting. It underpins our curriculum and lies at the heart of everything we do at Munchkin Manor.


Children who graduate from Munchkin Manor successfully start school with confidence and develop the foundations for lifelong learning. Our promise to you is that we will work with your child with love, passion and dedication to ensure they gain this advantage before they start big school.
