Mission Statement
Mahmowenchike is a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to quality childcare and providing resources to empower families. Working together as a community, we practice and respect traditions to promote the cultural development of a strong generation of children.

The philosophy of Mahmowenchike Family Development Centre is based on the traditional value of “working together” with the parents, elders, and community to promote the growth and development of the young child. Mahmowenchike believes that by involving the family and community members in the child’s life that the circle will be made stronger.

“I am so happy with the staff at Mahmowenchike! We always feel welcomed and the love I see my son receive from his educators makes it easier to go to work every day, knowing I’m leaving him with people who have so much love and kindness to give him.”

“I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to leave my child with. At the end of my maternity leave, I was pretty terrified to leave my baby with strangers, but the staff are so wonderful and caring. After a year and a half, they feel like favourite members of my extended family. Thank you for creating such a nurturing, safe space for these kids.”

“Mahmowenchike Family Development Centre has definitely assisted in growing my toddler’s motor and interactive skills. My child has improved vocabulary, more patience, and understanding of his surroundings. Mahmowenchike has also accommodated alternate arrangements in terms of food to to ensure that the kid gets to eat what is acceptable by the whole family. My wife and I feel quite happy choosing Mahmowenchike as the care provider for our kids – definitely one less stress while at work.”
