Licensed Child Care Centres

Licensed Child Care Centres

MCRC has two licensed child care centres where we offer a full time program for children from 18 months to 4 years of age. Additionally, at our Bruce Trail Early Learning and Child Care Centre we have a before and after school age program for children 3.8 to 12 years of age. Both of our Licensed Child Care Centres are Quality First participants.

Toddler Program (18 months to 2 ½ years)

The toddler educators provide experiences and a learning environment that is age appropriate for toddlers. The ratio in the room is 1 educator to 5 toddlers. The room is designed with toddler size in mind. We provide many hands on experiences to assist children to explore their environment. There is a sleep period daily where each child has their own cot, sheet and a blanket. We encourage a team approach to care where educators work closely with parents to ensure a smooth transition from home to centre.

Preschool (2 ½ to 3.8 years)

The ratio in this room is 1 educator to 8 children. Activities are based on the children’s interests. Our educators meet the developmental goals by creating an environment that stimulates learning. The children have a daily rest period not exceeding 2 hours following the mid day meal. A child who is unable to sleep during the rest period will not be kept on a cot for longer than 1 hour and will be permitted to engage in quiet activities such as reading, puzzles, etc. Through our Reggio approach, educators and children work on projects to promote discovery and learning. You will be able to see your child’s learning, evident in the documentation around the classroom.
