Children are provided with a range of activities and age appropriate toys to encourage their physical development. These activities include riding bicycles, peddle cars, playing hockey and basketball.
MTCP offers a nutritional snack to encourage children to sit together in a group, try new foods, learn good table manners and eating habits and socialize.

At More Than Child's Play, we recognize the importance of social and emotional development in young children. We offer a range of programs and services to help children develop these crucial skills, including play-based learning, art therapy, and mindfulness practices.
Early Childhood Education
We believe in the power of early childhood education to set children up for success later in life. Our programs are designed to provide children with a safe and nurturing environment where they can learn, play, and grow.
We believe that building strong communities is key to supporting families. That's why we host a variety of community events throughout the year, including bake sales, fun fairs, fundraising galas and more.
As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of donors to keep our programs running. Your donation can help us provide support to families in need and ensure that every child has access to high-quality early childhood education.
