About Us

The Old Millbrook School Family Centre (OMSFC), incorporated in 2001, is a non-profit agency dedicated to the care, nurturing, and well-being of children.

In the spring of 2018 we began operating The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre.

The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre takes a community-directed approach to providing accessible programs, services, and resources that are aimed at meeting the needs of children and families living in our community.

A volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of parents, teachers, and other local residents oversee and take an active role in the Centre's operations. Our program is funded by The Ministry of Education through The City of Peterborough.
