Note from the President of the Board of Directors:
I would like to draw your attention to the current decision facing the Board presently, which is McMaster University’s request that the Children’s Centre operate two locations on campus. Please do get in touch if you have feedback or questions.

Playing in Wintery Weather:
Snowy Days are ahead! A reminder that all children are to be prepared to play outdoors. Your child needs to be able to participate in the full program which includes two hours of outdoor activity each day.
Please make sure your child has available a warm coat, snow pants, boots, mittens, hat, and a scarf.
Inclement Weather Closures
If inclement weather causes McMaster University to close, McMaster Children’s Centre closes as well. Closures will be posted online on McMaster Daily News. Please confirm your email is updated as every attempt will be made to notify you via email also.
