Agency Statement:

Milton Community Resource Centre (MCRC) is a not–for-profit, multi-service organization that provides services to children and families of Milton and the surrounding communities. Through our EarlyON sites, we provide early learning programs for children, their parents and caregivers. MCRC’s parent resource library offers a variety resources and workshops including access to our parent educators. Through our Licensed Child Care programs, MCRC provides quality early learning and care at an affordable cost and subsidy is available for eligible families. MCRC also operates The Halton Resource Connection, which provides training, support and resources to individuals and organizations working with children and youth.

MCRC embraces an emergent and play based philosophy in all program areas. This is best described as an approach to learning which encourages purposeful play and builds upon the interests of children. Children are closely observed by program teachers and are given opportunities for learning based on these observed interests. Staff, parents and children work as a collaborative team, directing learning through an enriched environment influenced by project work, communication through various media, research and documentation.
