The Munroe Early Childhood Education Centre has been a fixture in my constituency of Elmwood for over 40 years. It provides inviting, stimulating and flexible childcare for our community. Today, Munroe Early Childhood Education Centre teaches over 250 preschool and school aged children.

Munroe ECEC’s preschool program has been located in Elmwood High School for twenty five wonderful years, having moved from its original location in a local church basement. No doubt many early learning and childcare programs began this way. Today, it now operates out of three other Elmwood area schools: George V on Grey Street, Kent Road School, and Polson School on Munroe Avenue.

When parents drop their kids off at school or daycare, they want to feel secure knowing they’re leaving their children in good hands. Munroe Early Childhood Education Centre has an incredible team of dedicated staff, who work to make sure the students are provided with a safe and respectful environment, where they are free to express themselves. The Centre’s staff have worked hard to create innovative and stimulating programming, and a nurturing environment for the students.

Throughout the years, Munroe ECEC has cared for hundreds of Elmwood children. Generations of Elmwood families have all passed through the doors of Munroe Early Childhood Education Centre at some point, and without a doubt, the Centre will continue to serve hundreds of Elmwood families in the years to come.

Recently I was pleased to introduce representatives of the board and staff of the Munroe Early Childhood Education Centre to my colleagues in the Manitoba Legislature, thanking them for their important contribution to our community, and thanking the staff for their invaluable work.

As 2016 comes to an end and a new year begins, please accept my best wishes for this joyful season. May you all have good health, happiness and a wonderful holiday.
