Munchkinlands

Munchkinlands are dynamic early learning environments in Parksville and Qualicum Beach.  They are a part of the BC StrongStart program.  Each of our two Munchkinlands features different types of learning-through-play, language-enriched space for families to play together.  One day a week when we go “Out and About” with Munchkinland activities.

We are currently sourcing materials to build an outdoor play space at our Parksville Munchkinland at Family Place and we need your help! If you or anyone you know is able to donate any of the items below please contact us by phone: 250-947-8252 or by email at admin@oblt.ca
