Our Program

Munn’s Child Care Centre Inc. is a non-profit and inclusive organization that has served the Oakville area since 1989. It is our mission to provide and promote high quality professional childcare. The Munn’s handprints represent a child who is busy exploring their world through play, young children gain knowledge and a sense of purpose in their lives. Munn’s Child Care Centre Inc. is committed to providing a warm and caring atmosphere so that all children and Parent/Guardians alike will feel secure and be able to enjoy their day.

Our Emergent Curriculum Philosophy, is a Play-Based program that builds upon the interests of the children and 4 foundations: belonging, well-being, engagement and expression and provides child initiated and adult supported experiences. Children learn about themselves and the world around them through investigation, discovery and through art, dramatic play and social interactions. Important factors such as literacy and numeracy development are introduced and woven into our program through creative, sensory, block areas, book centres and expanded during small group activities. When children are manipulating objects, acting out roles or experimenting with different materials, they are engaged in learning through play. Play allows them to actively construct, challenge and expand their own understandings as well as intentional play-based learning enable children to investigate, ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking.

Our educators recognize that each child is a unique individual who brings their own abilities to the program and they plan for and create positive learning environments and experiences in which each child’s learning and development will be supported. We provide an environment that fosters the child’s exploration, play and inquiry. We believe that every child deserves a safe and caring environment in which to grow and develop to their maximum potential.
