In May of 1990, a group of Mt. Washington families came together to share their vision of creating a childcare center for the community. The founding group developed policies and philosophy, researched possible sites and created by-laws. The group filed incorporation papers and became the Mt. Washington Preschool and Child Care Center, Inc. in 1991, and a non-profit in 1992.
Today, MWPCCC provides a multi-racial, multi-cultural environment, which encourages a variety of experiences appropriate to the children’s diverse backgrounds. The program is nonsexist in that children can participate in a variety of experiences, which do not limit their interests and competencies on the basis of gender. Special-needs children are welcome as long as the environment of the programs is judged to be beneficial to the optimum development of such children.
MWPCCC will provide quality and affordable early learning and care in centers serving working families of all incomes.
