Hi, I'm Ngaire, I am the educator at Munchkin Manor family daycare on Martyville Road. I am a proud mother of 4 grown-up children and grandmother of six grandchildren. I grew up in New Guinea and went to boarding school on the Gold Coast. I went on to study photography at the College of Art in Brisbane. After a few years of working in photography, I married and moved to a sheep and cattle station near Winton in Western Queensland. During this time I taught my 3 older children through Distance Education. After moving to my present home I decided to open family daycare while my youngest daughter was still at school. I aim to create a loving, caring “home away from home” daycare environment where children feel happy, safe and secure and learn through play, hands-on investigation and everyday life experiences.
