Our programs and services are for Children from birth to 6 years and their parents or caregivers from all cultural backgrounds and family models. Parents and caregivers are required to remain at the site during the programs, unless they have booked Parent Relief and Occasional and Emergency Childcare. There are some general Do’s and Don’ts that should be followed.
CMCP asks participants to register with our office staff. Registration can be completed with our office staff, and requires updating on an annual basis.
We ask all participants to sign in/out upon each visit to a site. This is important for knowing who is in the building in case of an emergency (fire drill), as well as for tracking purposes to ensure our funding continues.
CMCP works to ensure that participants, staff and volunteers are healthy and safe. We ask you not to attend the program if you or your children are suffering from any of the following. Please advise staff if you or your children have been diagnosed with an infectious disease.
