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 feature 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.

Munchkinland is free! Bring your family and come play. Click HERE to go the the SCHEDULE.

Created in partnership with community partners, businesses, BLT volunteers, students and the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Children and Families and Strong Start.

Suggestions to get the most out of your experience in a StrongStart BC program can be found HERE.
