The PMFRC will be extending hours for Casual Child Care Services beginning April 1. Families have told us that they would benefit from additional hours on evenings and weekends, so we have changed our schedule to better meet those needs.
In addition to our regular Monday to Friday hours (8:00 AM to 4:30 PM), the North Side location will offer extended hours on:
- the second Wednesday of the month from noon – 8:30 PM, and
- the fourth Saturday from 9 AM to noon.
The South Side location will offer extended hours on:
- the second Saturday of the month from 9 AM to noon, and
- the fourth Wednesday of the month from noon – 8:30 PM.
During our extended hours (Wednesdays 4:30 to 8:30 PM and Saturday mornings), casual care will be able to accomodate chidren ages 0 to 12. During regular hours (8:00 AM to 4:30 PM weekdays), casual care is available only for children ages 0 - 6.
To make reservations, please call 613-687-1641 ext. 2225 (North Side), or 613-687-2104 ext. 231 (South Side).
*Please note, clients must use a pre-paid punch card to pay for casual child care outside of our regular office hours. These punch cards can be purchased at the North Side and South Side locations, or by phone by calling (613) 687-1641 ext. 0. Punch cards will go on sale starting March 26.
Do you have a doctor's appointment or errands to run? Is your regular child care provider unavailable?
The PMFRC has two Casual Child Care locations which offer licensed child care at an affordable hourly fee for parents who need a few hours of casual child care now and then.
We provide a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment in which the children can be introduced to various learning experiences and develop socialization skills through peer play.
Our early learning environments employ registered Early Childhood Educators.
We care for children aged birth to six years of age.
Are you coming to Petawawa on a house hunting trip? Don't wait until you arrive in Petawawa; call in advance to reserve a spot at one of our locations! Please note, you will need to provide your child's immunization records when you drop them off. If your child is not immunized, you will need to provide a statement of medical or conscience or religious belief for exemption of immunization. You can get copies of these forms on the Ontario Ministry of Education website.
