Offering enriching Daycare experiences for children 3 Months to 5 Years
3 Corners Childcare Centre opened in November 2009 and is located in the Mount Pleasant Community Centre (1 Kingsway). 3 Corners is operated by the Mount Pleasant Community Centre Association (MPCCA). We are a licensed group child care program that provides year-round care for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Our facility offers a universal design for full accessibility and a large secure rooftop play area.
At 3 Corners we follow an emergent, play-based curriculum, and are guided by the BC Early Learning Framework (BC ELF). Through our practice, we aim to create an environment that represents all of our children, to facilitate learning opportunities that promote awe & wonder, and to embrace children’s natural curiosity about the world around them.
Learning can be messy, and the learning journey doesn’t often happen in a straight line – we embrace this – and collaborate with the children, families and other team members to make sense of the world together in the ways that work for our children at the time.
3 Corners thrives on utilizing the BC Early Learning Framework. “By supporting the creation of rich, joyful early childhood spaces where children & adult’s ideas and miracles come together. Knowledge is co-constructed about learning and living in ways that are local, inclusive, ethical and democratic.” – BC Early Learning Framework 2019.
Waitlist Advertising Process:
When we have a space available it will be advertised above
Age Ranges: In order to qualify for available spaces, children must be born within the age range posted. Age ranges are determined by MPCCA in conjunction with BC Child Care Licensing Regulations to ensure that we can provide ongoing, uninterrupted care. If age ranges were not so specific, it is likely that care would be interrupted or cancelled when transitioning from one room to the next. If your child does not fit the age range, we will not be able to consider them for the space.
Contract Spaces: To better serve our community, families must be able to fulfill the contract term as specified above.
Extension of Care: Temporary spaces are available as posted and unfortunately not flexible for change. Our hope is to be able to extend care beyond the temporary contract or offer a permanent space if available. If the opportunity comes up to extend a contract space we inform families as soon as possible but cannot predict or confirm this at this time.
