3 Corners Child Care Centre (3 months – 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.
Curriculum and Program
Our curriculum at 3 Corners Child Care is emergent, child-centered, and play-based. As educators we plan according to the different interests and abilities of the children in the centre, taking their cues as the starting point of curriculum planning. As we regularly observe and assess play we are able to arrange the classroom environment, select activities and provide the appropriate props. Emphasis is placed on the experiences of the children, rather than on the results of those experiences. Each child has their own set of possibilities and as educators we help those possibilities unfold.
Hours of Operation
Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 6:00pm. (We are closed during all statutory holidays)
Fee rates for the daycare program are set annually by the MPCCA and are subject to change. Our program has recently been approved for the Government of BC’s Fee Reduction Initiative. These new fees are posted below.
Infant and Toddlers (3-36 months): $976.00 per month
3-5 Program (36 months-5 years): $767.00 per month
Licensed Child Care Spaces
Infant/Toddler: 24 spaces.
3-5yrs: 25 spaces.
3 Corners is Currently Full. If we have waitlist spaces in the future you will see them advertised here. Please check back every 2 weeks for any updates or openings.
Creating an Account to Register for a Waitlist Opening:
We use the City of Vancouver Registration System. In order to register for our waitlist you must create an account on their system. Please go to https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/ in order to create this account. In the top right corner of this website click “Create Account”. Follow the prompts and add your child as a family member. We recommend when a waitlist is opening that you be logged into your account prior to reigstering for the activity. This will save you time during the waitlist registration process.
General Waitlist Information
We feel that it is unfair to give families false hope that we may have space for your child, therefore we do not keep a waitlist. Please note that September is the most common month for spaces to become available. Spaces can become available other months, however those spaces are rare and cannot be predicted too far in advance.
Please refer all waitlist inquires to the website’s home page under the green heading “Your Child Care”. If you do not see a 3 Corners Child Care Centre Space Advertisement there, we do not have any current openings, Other advertisements will be posted here throughout the year.
When we have an opening:
We will have the waitlist opening date up on our websites home page for two weeks before the date, so checking twice a month is sufficient. Please check the information carefully, as each waitlist space we open up will be for a specific child’s age and start date. The exact information needs to apply to you in order for your child to be accepted, if the information does not apply to you, please do not register as we delete the waitlist as soon as we have filled our space(s).
Tours of our facility are offered once a family is offered a space. As you know, child care is in such a high demand and we just do not have the capacity, and along with safety concerns, to allow tours of our centre.
Thank you for understanding.
