About Us

Who We Are

Peterborough Child & Family Centres stands for inclusion, choice, and acceptance. We empower families and child care providers to make our PCFC community into what they need. To support them, we bring knowledge, guidance, experience and passion. We believe fun and play, attachment and learning are critical for child development. We live our values every day, through every program and interaction.

PCFC is a registered, charitable, non-profit organization that provides information and support to expectant parents, families with young children and child care providers living in the County and City of Peterborough, Ontario.

For more than 30 years, we have offered programs and services in a variety of safe, accessible, urban and rural locations.

PCFC is a designated EarlyON Centre for the County and City of Peterborough, and the local site of the federally funded Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program and Community Action Program for Children.

At PCFC, you are welcome. Attend a program, become a supporter, volunteer or
donor, today.
