Our centres will close if the Peel District School Board cancels school due to inclement weather. Evenings and weekends we will close if the Board cancels permits. School Board closures are posted on the Peel District School Board's website and announced on various television and radio stations.
MPCRC is proud to champion the Peel Children's Charter of Rights.
We encourage everyone to become familiar with the charter, which lists twelve rights that apply to every child.
Our centres will be showcasing a different right every month.
For February, it is "The Right to Make Friends and Freely Meet in Groups - Every child has the right to play together, have fun, make friends. The way to have a friend is to be one!"
For March, it is "The Right to Religion, Culture and Beliefs - Every child has the right to be treated the same way in every country and not be treated differently because of the colour of their skin. Every child has the right to choose their own faith."
For more information on how the Charter was created, visit the Success by 6 Peel website.
