Important MFRC Daycare Waitlist Information

Our MFRC Daycare is a small, cozy centre that is licensed for 24 children - 16 spaces for 3 to 5 year olds and 8 spaces for Infant/Toddlers.  The program typically sees 6-8 openings per year as a result of children moving on into kindergarten and postings.  Due to the size of our daycare, low turnover of children and extensive waitlist, it may take a minimum of 18 months to 2 years on our waitlist before a family is offered a daycare space - so get on our list early (prenatal is suggested)!  Please be aware that we are not always able to predict when a spot will open to families on our waitlist.
