Licensed by the Ministry of Education, Manor Park Child Care Centre offers 30 Toddler spaces and 24 Preschool spaces in a bright and spacious newly renovated space. Manor Park Child Care Centre provides high quality early learning and childcare and is located at 1805 Gaspé Avenue off St. Laurent Blvd. It is nestled in a quiet, private neighbourhood next to the RCMP stables. The Manor Park Child Care Centre is run by the Manor Park Community Council and was created due to the increasing demand for more childcare spaces in our area.
Manor Park Child Care has been able to open successfully as a result of much planning, collaboration and support of many amazing community partners.
Manor Park Child Care Centre is proudly part of the Canada Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) program. Together, with the City of Ottawa, we aim to provide high quality, accessible, affordable and inclusive child care to our families.
The Manor Park Community Council acknowledges the support of the City of Ottawa and Ministry of Education for "General Operating Funding' and 'Municipal Health and Safety Funding'.
