Newcomer children

The MCAF offers two childcare programs that provide a safe learning environment for newcomer children.
Care for Newcomer Children (CNC)

On-site childcare is available for parents in English Language classes. MCAF CNC qualified staff provide a caring, safe and healthy environment for children aged 6-24 months.

Rainbow of Cultures Childcare Centre (RoC)

The Rainbow of Cultures Childcare Centre (RoC) is a licensed Childcare Centre operated by MCAF, providing full-time/part-time services for children aged 2-12 years old. RoC accommodates 58 children, including pre-schoolers and after-schoolers. This service is provided mainly for children of newcomer families, however, registration can be open to children in our community to join an inclusive learning environment.

Pre-schoolers (2-5 years old): Children are divided in different groups based on their ages. RoC staff provide diverse, age-appropriate activities based on the children’s interests.

After School Program (6-12 years old): We encourage the concept of play and discovery. Children have flexible routines that include time for free play, snack and outdoor activities. In partnership with community partners, additional activities are offered, including:

  • homework club
  • recreational opportunities
  • arts and crafts projects
  • music, drama and dance sessions
  • STEM activities
  • literacy & language activities
