Update as of Saturday March 14th.

As you are aware, the Community Response to COVID-19 has been proactive, thoughtful and intentional.

Our number one priority as we mentioned yesterday is the health and safety of our participants, our staff and the greater community.

It is with keeping that priority in mind that our Organization’s Board of Directors voted yesterday to close all of our programs effective immediately until Monday April 6th.

At that time we will reevaluate any new information, community responses and the directions our Municipal Funders and The Province are providing us with.

Research strongly supports social distancing as an effective strategy to flatten the curve of new occurrences of any outbreak.  This was at the forefront of our minds when making such an important decision.

We thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through the next couple of weeks.

If you have any questions, please email Nancy Hurley at

Any questions or need for further information related to COVID-19 can be directed to Peterborough Public Health.

Thank you.
The Staff and The Board of Directors of The Old Millbrook School Family Centre.
