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 December, it is "The Right to Play - Every child has the right to play and have fun. To have dancing flowers and magic mud."
For more information on how the Charter was created, visit the Success by 6 Peel website.
