Muntajima welcomes you inside ‘Nyundu munu bilan, Muntajima naynggan’
As we gather on sacred land let us acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, the Gimbuy Walubara of the Yidinji in which our service sits in the heart of Gimuy Walubara Country. Muntajima Entryway has been named in recognition of this beloved elder’s contribution to the community and to children particularly. She raised and nurtured countless children, both Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal and taught the Gimuy values of kindness, caring, sharing, empathy and patience which aligns with Cubby Care Early Learning Mooroobool vision and values.
We are a family of educators who are committed to creating a learning environment that enhances children’s development and opportunities to discover new experiences. Our service is a small homely family centre that is surrounded by beautiful natural environments that get children involved in sustainable experiences that enhance their knowledge, their care and their development towards positive attitudes and values on becoming part of a sustainable future.
Our Educators believe in establishing a respectful, secure and caring relationship with all children and families. Developing this relationship is a crucial sense of belonging in which is central to being and becoming in guiding children while embracing their uniqueness and the possibilities of who they may become.
Your child will benefit greatly from our Early Start Programs, who bring in external experts to deliver Music, Yoga, Spanish Lessons and Physical Movement classes that optimise your child’s growth. These programs are delivered during School Terms at no additional costs and are included in your daily fees.
Swimming assists with health and fitness, cognitive processes, social interactions and safety. Our ongoing commitment and partnership with C-Me Swim School educate our children on an essential life skill. We encourage our 3-year-old + to get into the water and learn about water safety and swimming at an additional cost.
We offer a 4-week rotational menu at the service that is developed from the five food groups and limits the foods that are high in saturated fats, added sugars and added salt. We always ensure our children will be getting the essential nutrients for good health, growth and development.
Our Qualified and Experienced educators embed The Early Years Framework, The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and My Time our Place. The three key elements that are within the framework are our Principles, Practices and Learning Outcomes. Together these elements are used to create learning programs that are reflective of our individual centre, children and families.
Cubby Care strongly advocates for the rights and dignities of all children with continual improvements and reflections on policies and procedure, to ensure we align with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a child (1989) and the Code of Ethics.

Shannon has been such a help to Grace and I since the day we met her and welcomed Grace into her open arms reassuring her and comforting her all the while giving me support to go and leave Grace in her capable care! Shannon is always bubbly, friendly and leads the children confidently. I just love being greeted by her in the mornings - she makes Graces and my day so much brighter and makes it easier for me to leave without hesitation.
I love how Maliyah always comes home happy from your centre, all the staff are so friendly and accommodating...and most of all she comes home every time and has learnt something new. You guys are amazing & thank you so much for everything you do.
