Hi! Welcome to Marleen's Munchkins Child Care. Your child's health, happiness, and education are very important! Every child is different and the individuality your child brings into a group should be cherished, embraced, and encouraged. That is why at Marleen's Munchkins the first step I take is the time to learn, understand, and adapt curriculum to the needs, abilities, and character traits of your child, promoting your child's potential to grow positively and successfully with a greater sense of accomplishment.

Child care is the crucial first stepping stone to a life long learning experience, and can open the door to endless possibilities of exciting adventures. Take time to visit us here at Marleen's Munchkins to find out what exciting adventures are occurring today!
