Why Choose Little Muffins Family Day Care?

Small group settings, one-on-one communication with your child’s carer morning/night along with affordable hourly rates, flexibility of hours and days, full access to Child Care Subsidy for all eligible families makes family day care a popular alternative to centre based care.   

Family Day Care provides the most natural setting for the important early childhood years.  Child to educator ratios are very low, allowing you and your child endless opportunities for one-on-one interaction with the Educator. 

Our Little Muffins receive the same educational benefits as any other child care service with quality, individual programs based on each child's strengths, needs and interests. 

Safety standards are strict - all our Educators are visited regularly by Scheme Coordinators to ensure all government regulations and rules are implemented and maintained.

At Little Muffins, our Educators love their work, and we are proud of their commitment to maintaining the high standards we require.
