Child Care Centre Membership

The Manitoba Child Care Association is well respected as the voice of early learning and child care in Manitoba.  Our long history and expertise have helped improve and enhance the availability of licensed child care facilities in Manitoba.  A centre membership  supports the work of MCCA, and also provides the  board of directors/parent advisory committee with access to a range of benefits and services for the organization.

Centre membership dues: 

Full time child care centre:  25 hours or more per week       $210.00 Annual

Part time child care centre: less than 25 hours per week      $122.50  Annual
