We exist to promote, advance and enrich the lives of children and families.

We believe that each child is a unique individual with rights for love, respect and quality care in a warm and nurturing environment. MACCPF is a proud contributor to the St. Vital community offering flexible care arrangements at 10 strategic locations. We offer an assortment of programs suitable for infants to children 12 years of age as well as families in the community. We provide an inclusive, multicultural environment with services available to children of all abilities. Our staff are professional Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) and Child Care Assistants (CCAs).

We recognize and respect every individual’s right to privacy.

When you apply to place your child on our waiting list or to register your child in any of our programs, we establish a confidential file that is kept at the specific Centre location you have chosen as well as the MACCPF Head Office. We limit access to information in your file to MACCPF child care providers and administrative employees only that require it to perform their duties, to persons to whom you have granted access, in writing, and to persons or agencies authorized by law. We use your information to communicate with you and provide information about programs and services directly related to the mission statement of MACCPF.

We are committed to the QUAD principles: quality, universal inclusion, accessibility and development. In support of this, we will strive to:

  1. Meet the needs of people of all ages, backgrounds and diversity.
  2. Cultivate programs for children in order to nurture their healthy growth and development.
  3. Embrace a welcoming and home-like environment and atmosphere within our Centres for all who elect to join.
  4. Continue to develop community partnerships and operate in a fiscally responsible manner.

Our History

Morrow Avenue Child Care Programs were established in 1987 in the Salvation Army Church at 51 Morrow Avenue. As the need for quality-licensed care grew, the centre expansion brought us to Victor Mager School (1990), Hastings School (1994), Ecole Marie-Anne Gaboury (1998), Lavallee West School (1998), Victor H.L.Wyatt School (1999), Glenwood School (2000), Dr. D.W.Penner School (2004), Archwood School (2004) Lavallee East (2005), Centre 24/7 (2006) and Salvation Army (2012).

In 1998, Morrow Avenue Child Care was selected as one of the Research Sites for Early Start, an Early Childhood initiative for Kindergarten Readiness, funded through the Healthy Child Initiative. December of 1999 heralded the creation of the S.P.A.C.E. (Site for Parent and Child Education) Program operating out of our Victor Wyatt Site. Programs run by the Family Resource Coordinator include Parent-Child Mother Goose, Family Games Night, Family Literacy and a host of other programs designed to encourage positive family relationships.
