The Peel Board of Education Secondary School teachers have gone on strike starting Monday May 4th, 2015. For safety reasons, we have closed our Port Credit centre and will reassess the safety concerns and the possibility of reopening on a regular basis if the strike continues for an extended period of time. We will notify you on this web page of the status of this closure.
In an effort to keep you and your little ones attending our programs, we are going to be offering some select Port Credit programs at some of our Turtle Creek location. Please click here to see the revised schedule. During this period our Port Credit staff will be working at Turtle Creek and at other nearby sites to welcome the Port Credit families and assist with programming.
We are currently accepting applications for the Gurowka Bursaries through our Healthy Start Prenatal Food and Nutrition Support Program. The bursary consists of an award of $1000.00 that is presented annually to assist 3 mothers in achieving long-term improvements and goals (i.e. continued education, career counseling) that improve the lives of herself and her baby. Application deadline is April 30, 2015. Full details here.
Mississauga Parent-Child Resource Centres recognizes that the earliest years of life are the most important for a child's development.
Our centres provide free programs and services for parents/caregivers and their children up to the age of six. We offer informal drop-in play times and structured programs that foster social interactions and educational activities that help children reach their full potential. Both children and adults take part in the programs together.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff can speak to you about age-appropriate options for your children and program availability. Parent/Caregiver workshops and resources are also available. Click here or consult centre staff for more details.
Saviez-vous que nous offrons des programmes en français? Vous pouvez assister à un programme unilingue visant les francophones (Heure de famille en français). Veuillez consulter les horaires des centres Meadowvale (le samedi matin) et Heart Lake (le lundi matin) pour plus d'information.

It is with regret that we announce the permanent closing of our Meadowvale Town Centre, Ontario Early Years Centre location on Friday March 27, 2015. MPCRC will continue to serve families in the Meadowvale neighbourhood, just under a different model.
Over the past few months, we reached out for help with this transition and we are very grateful for the positive responses we have received from our community partners and families. A special thanks to Peel District School Board, Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, Mississauga Library and Britannia Glen Co-operative Homes, who are all giving us rent-free space, allowing us to offer programs at the following locations beginning in April:
Additionally, our Postpartum Mood Disorder Peer Support group will continue on Wednesdays (1:00-3:00) and the French program will continue on Saturdays (9:30-10:30), both being relocated to our Brittany Glen site.
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 April, it is "The Right to Privacy - Every child has the right to peace and quiet and have their own privacy from different people who bother you or from the internet."
