program

Child Bib

infant - toddler

The Infant-Toddler program offers full-time and part-time care for children ages 0-36 months. We help children become comfortable and secure in a new group setting and independent of primary family members. We augment each day with programming that puts emphasis on artistic expression, music, movement, science and exploration and language.

As infants develop, additional learning outcomes include developing self-feeding skills, enhanced coordination and linguistic comprehension. We incorporate equipment and toys which provide texture, sounds and offers a range of different sensory experiences. Through play, all areas of development are enhanced.

Numeracy for Children

early Learners

Transitioning from infants to early-learners , self-directed play becomes an important theme in this program; learning outcomes include language development, socialization, self-help and fine motor skills. Language development is promoted in a variety of ways such as labeling the surrounding environment, repetition of emerging vocabulary, in addition to other personalized goals. All of this contributes to toddlers becoming confident learners.

Group activities along with enhanced social and cognitive skills are the main focus of this program. Nurturing educators support the child while they are exploring, whether it’s through finger painting, playing with blocks, listening to songs or engaging in story-time.

We had a great experience with Little Munchkin, South Granville! Our daughter absolutely loved going to daycare each... day and the teachers were so unbelievably caring. She learned a lot and also made wonderful friends… we will definitely miss it!read more

Little Munchkin was our first ever daycare experience. We had excellent communication from the program coordinator and... contact with the floor manager before our in-person visit. The administrative staff at Little Munchkin have been very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. Our child started at Holland Street centre and moved to Granville centre for a full-time position. The staff at both centres have been incredible. They are so kind, friendly and caring to us and our child. We drop off our child at the front door and they run into daycare, excited to see the educators and their friends. It has been such a relief to see how much our baby loves attending Little Munchkin. We receive photos daily of what our baby has been up to and the staff send us any messages if they need to. Communication is fast and easy on their phone app. We're sad to be leaving our friends at LM! Thank you to the entire team for our wonderful experience.read more

My son attended Little Munchkin from 18 months to 3 years old and it was a really great experience. The staff were... skilled and caring during his transition into daycare. They provided a nurturing and fun environment with daily art, books, music, free play and outside time. The ECEs went above and beyond to provide an amazing experience and we will never forget our time there! The daily communication is exceptional as they use an app to track everything. Thank you Little Munchkin!read more

Irresponsive management and unprofessional and uncaring staff. The turn-over of the staff is high. No specific... curriculum. No consistency in the routines the children can count on. Ended up getting my child out of the Little Munchkin Daycare after couple of weeks. Do more research before enrolling your child here.read more

They took our Daughter at 7 months old and she seemed to really love it there. The staff is very friendly and will send... you updates throughout the day, including photos of your little one playing with the other kids. We really enjoyed our time at Little Munchkin's Oak location.read more

Our child has been in little munchkin for around 2 years and it was the best experience as a parent and a child. Our... kid was very happy to get ready for the daycare every morning! She learnt a lot through the wide variety of activities and events. The daycare teachers and the admin were friendly, responsive and helpful. Highly recommended and were flexible with our multiple requests as well! Thanks again little munchkin!read more

It's our last week at Little Munchkin, and we are sad to leave! My son has been at the 52nd & Granville location for... almost two years. It's his second home where he plays and laughs and learns, and the staff are like family to us. We have nothing but good reviews. Get the spot if you're offered; it's a wonderful place to send your child. Best: So many things! Life at Little Munchkin is more than peace of mind for us. The teachers really get to know their kids individually and care about them! Worst: They have two 1-week closures, one in summer and one after New Year's - so staff can have a break too. Plenty of notice though, and stays open between Christmas and New Year's. Specifics: Waitlist/registration: We were waitlisted for a dozen daycares around town and Mohammad was the only person who got back to us before my mat leave ended. Part-time spot turned full-time at the same location, even through covid. Mohammad actually cares about the families, unlike some other places that act like they don't need your business. COVID: Centre never closed due to covid but reduced staffing due to fewer kids. We were lucky enough to stay in the same location. Health protocols are in place and updated regularly, emailed out to parents with reminders in app. Manager is reasonable at enforcing policies, friendly but firm, just what you want in a toddler care provider. Policies were sometimes unclear but we just asked to clarify, and remembered that safety is first and respect goes both ways. Location: House on a residential street, fully fenced backyard with several playhouses, pirate ship, slides, etc. Nap room separate. Teachers stay with children in room. Main floor is infant program (8) and basement for toddlers (8). Schedule: Infant group is somewhat flexible to the child for nap time and helped my son transition and build a regular schedule. Toddler group has daily outdoor play in the morning and two-hour nap/quiet time 1 to 3. Opens between 8 and 5:30, though most kids are gone by 5pm these days. Food: Centre provides snacks AM, PM; bring your own lunch which can be heated up. Activities: My son has so much fun! Monthly themes, arts, crafts, sensory play, story time, songs, outdoor play, water play on hot days, and actual learning (days of the week, games with alphabet, planets, etc.). Also practice safety drills regularly. Staff: Teachers are caring and kind, and obviously love working with children. Our son even learned a few words of Korean and Mandarin. ECE certified (see activities), professional and reliable. At pick-up, teachers also tells us of any behaviour issues, health problems, or just fun moments in the day. Communication with family: App that notifies check-in/out, food, potty, nap; daily photos of playtime, birthdays; reminder for closures, etc. The 10:30 photo drop is the highlight of my day! Potty training: It's the parents' job but staff will support once the child is reliable enough to not have frequent accidents. We sent our son in pull-ups with prompts for potty until teachers told us he can be in training pants. Finally, a great big hug to all the teachers we've ever had at Little Munchkin! Thank you, Emily, Yuka, and Nicole for making it easy to leave my little guy and go back to work with peace of mind! Thank you to Julia, Ahra, Hannah, and Seul, for a happy toddlerhood and so much love!read more

My son has been at the Granville location since he was 10.5 months old and is currently almost 3. The staff are... fantastic and truly care about the children. They get two snacks a day, playtime outside and come home with crafts they have done regularly. My son has learned so much from the teachers Julia and Ahra and loves playing with the other children. I feel very fortunate that our son has been able to attend this daycare and would highly recommend it to other parents.read more

We had our son at Little Munchkins at Kerrisdale from when he turned one and it has been such a wonderful experience.... We get many photo updates that make us still feel a part of his day and bring us so much joy. Soo, Julie and Rana treat our little boy with so much love and care, even during the hard transition times when he cried a lot. We get lots of artworks home and they do so many great activities with them. He comes home with new words and is very happy with his friends at little munchkins. They provide a variety of fruits for snacks and the front yard provided a lot of mud play during winter (which he loved) but now is beautifully landscaped with artificial turf. They go Outside daily and we could not be happier with the care they provide.read more

Our son attended little munchkins for 2 years, initially at Dunbar and more recently at the Oak location. In both... locations we found the staff to be fantastic - kind, enthusiastic and with the happiness of the children as their main priority (for example when he moved locations his old teacher contacted the new teacher to let her know that our son really enjoyed art and crafts!). He developed a strong bond with all of them and spoke enthusiastically about what he had been doing with each of the teachers that day. The program seemed very well structured for an infant program - they regularly did art and crafts, circle time (reading and songs), and had a theme each month for activities e.g. weather, colours, alphabet. My son would come home knowing songs we hadn’t heard before and telling us about the stories they had read in circle time that day. The kids also play outside twice each day in almost all weather, and are allowed to get muddy, play in trees, hunt for bugs in the dirt etc. Altogether I feel like he had an enriching and very happy time there. We only left because he aged out of the group and we will miss the teachers and his friends (many of whom we now see for play dates outside of daycare) very much. Our sincere thanks to Mohammad and his great team (Min, Kanae, Shoko, Siny)read more

We send our son Ryan to Holland location when he was 10 month old. We are so lucky to meet Shino, because she is the... best teacher you can look for. She is very caring, loving, responsible and professional. She helps Ryan reach all his milestones in advance- stand, walk, talk, sing, dance. Ryan is one and a half year old now, he can dance and sing "clean up". He can say "mom', "daddy", "cracker","apple" almost 20 words. Ryan can greet people to say "Hi" and "Bye". He will say "see" when he finds something interesting. He can point all his body parts. The most important is that my son loves Shino so much! When he is at home, he keeps saying "Shino, Shino". Sometimes we forget to bring lunch or wash blanket. She always help us. You can tell that Shino gives all her love to every baby. My baby Ryan enjoys his everyday at daycare. Thanks so much, Shino! We all love you!read more

We feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to have our daughter in Little Munchkins daycare. The homes are very... nice and comfortable for the kids. The teachers are knowledgeable and caring. Our daughter had a great time there, and we appreciated their willingness to help us out when we needed an extra day here and there. They are very helpful and professional. I highly recommend their facilities.read more

Our very active toddler has loved this program. The location is quiet and easy for drop offs and pick ups. It’s a nice... blend of structured activities with free play and outdoor time. Most importantly, our son adjusted quickly to his new routine and developed a good relationship with all of his teachers.read more

I had both our kids attend the West 52nd location from 2016 to 2020. Management (Mohammad) and daycare staff (Julia et... al) have made our kids’ first daycare experiences memorable. They loved going to Little Munchkin each and everyday. Safe, caring and trustworthy, would absolutely recommend this daycare!read more

**Update: We're moving to North Van and have to leave this daycare. I've been crying for 2 weeks because it's hard... coming to terms with pulling him out. The staff are amazing, my son is so happy and when I pick him up tomorrow for his last day, I'll be a wreck. Just take the spot if you get one, you don't even need to see the place! I can't say enough good things about Little Munchkins at W 52nd! Our little guy is always happy when we drop off & pick up. His development has accelerated since he started there and I credit that to the ECE's. I also appreciate that they love and care about him as much as we do. It's especially reassuring that they take COVID protocols seriously. I wouldn't hesitate taking a spot here if you're offered one!read more

I cannot say enough good things about this daycare! I was so worried about putting my daughter into care, and have been... so thrilled with the care at little munchkin! The Kerrisdale staff - Soo, Julie & Rana are all amazing! They are so wonderful, caring and friendly, I felt confident leaving her with them, and the staff were all so considerate about answering questions or telling me about my daughter's day when I came to pick her up. I loved the app and the pictures they send each day. Also, I could tell from my daughter's mood when she came home so happy and easy that I knew she was having as wonderful time at daycare. Also, the staff are so cuddly and sweet with the kids, I felt like she was getting the same kind of care I would have given her at home as a more attachment style parent. I was very sad to switch due to finding a more subsidized spot closer to my house. I also loved all the little projects they do with the kids, a new one each day, and they pay attention to sensory stimulation and engagement, and they went outside everyday, rain or shine, which my daughter does not get at the new place. And it was very nice having snack provided, made my life much easier. But really, your heart is with your kids, and I felt my daughter was really well taken care of and so happy here, it was very hard to leave.read more

We put our little girl in just over 1 years old part-time, we thought it would be a huge transition but the teachers at... the Dunbar location (W29th) are just amazing! The teachers give you an update on your baby after each day, post pictures, post number of potty, nap times, how much food they have had. Its fantastic! They are patient, kind, and have ample energy (which I def dont have!)read more

We love Little Munchkins Daycare! The teachers there are very caring and playful with the kids. They spend a lot of... time doing artwork with the kids. We love that they spend a great amount of time outdoors as well. The teachers there are also extremely patient and professional, yet really personal. We love the rapport and photos we receive through their special app. It makes us feel at ease with communication. We can really feel their love towards the kids. They also were very professional during the pandemic and utilized steps in sanitation and made sure everything was always clean and safe. Mohammad the administrator is very accommodating towards our needs and catered to us with care. The Balfour and Oak location is our kid's favorite I would recommend this to anyone who is in need of childcare.read more

My son's time at Little Munchkins Daycare was absolutely amazing! He started here at the 29th location, split between... the Granville and 52nd location when he was just over a year old. Everything from the teachers, the spaces, the program, and the management were all exceptional. My son is now 3 years old and graduating from the toddler program at the 52nd location, and we are so sad to be leaving! We will miss this place dearly, and highly recommend this childcare facility to anyone looking for a safe, friendly, enriching place for their child to be.read more

We really loved our time at Little Munchkins at Dunbar. I felt nervous initially with having my first child at daycare... (like most of us). The girls at our site were absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable. It didn't take long before my daughter was stretching out her arms to go to them easily at drop off. I love the daily pictures posted- it makes me feel connected to my daughter through out the day. Would recommend to anyone!read more

My son went here (29/oak) from 13 months and we were so happy with the care. It was professional, clean and he seemed... to really enjoy it. The staff were lovely and I believe really care about the children. He always came home with art and they even had an app they’d often add photos through the day which was so nice. In the nice weather is usually find them playing outside at pickup time. He had friends there and was learning songs and it was just so nice to take him somewhere I felt safe leaving him. Thank you Little Munchkin we’ll miss you!!read more
