Offering enriching Daycare experiences for children 3 Months to 5 Years
3 Corners Child Care opened in November 2009 and is located in the Mount Pleasant Community Centre (#1Kingsway) and operated by MPCCA. We are an inclusive, licensed group child care program that provides year-round care for children aged 3 months to 5 years. The facility offers a universal design for full accessibility and a large secure rooftop play area for each age group, designed with natural materials.
3 Corners follows an emergent, play-based and integrated approach to learning. Our goal is to provide nurturing environment and learning experiences that promote wonder and challenge curiosities based in the interests of the children while fostering life long learning.

What Happens Next?
We will contact the successfully registered family by the afternoon on August 25th, 2021. At this time, we will ask that you confirm your child’s age and set up an in person or Zoom tour of 3 Corners to meet the staff and learn about our program. After your tour, you will have 24 hours to accept the space. You will be required to pay a 1-month security deposit and $50 non-refundable registration fee.
Should your child not be the right age or you decline the space, we will move down the list of waitlisted registrations, in order of registration time, until the space is successfully filled. Waitlisted families will be notified when the space has been filled and ALL WAITLISTS WILL BE DISCARDED at that time.
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.
Temporary Contract Spaces: Temporary spaces are available as posted and unfortunately not flexible for change. If the opportunity comes up to extend a contract space we inform families but cannot predict or confirm this at this time.
What Happens after Registering/Wait listing?
We will contact the successfully registered families by the following morning. At this time, we will ask that you confirm your child’s age and set up a zoom tour of 3 Corners (covid-19 protocol) to meet the staff and learn about our program. After your zoom tour, you will have 24 hours to accept the space and pay a 1-month security deposit and $50 non-refundable registration fee.
Should your child not be the right age or you decline the space, we will move down the waitlist until the space is successfully filled.
Waitlisted families will be notified when spaces are filled and ALL WAITLISTS WILL BE DISCARDED at that time.

Policy: MPCCA child care programs embrace diversity and celebrate environments of acceptance, respect, understanding and inclusion. We commit to learn, understand and appreciate each person’s unique attributes, abilities and cultural history to ensure that each child is recognized, reflected and valued in our programs. Our educators support the unique abilities of each child to ensure they reach their highest potential. MPCCA works with BC Centre for Ability and other community partners to enhance our ability to support children of all abilities through training and consultation.
