We support the young families of Riverdale.
The South Riverdale Child-Parent Centre is a haven for parents, caregivers and children to play, learn and grow. Imagine a place where babies and young children are given the opportunity to interact and play with a variety of age-appropriate toys, and parents are supported by the staff in learning new parenting skills.
A neighbour introduced me to the SRCPC when Charlie was just a few months old. It was a saving grace to have such a warm, safe and inviting environment to take him to throughout the year. Both he and I have made lasting friends, and I felt it was such an important part of the community that I joined the board! Charlie is 6 now, and still gets excited to go to the drop in and play! Thank you for all the support you provide.

The most fantastic, friendly, helpful staff EVER work at the children’s drop in. This centre is clean with a ton of toys, and there is also a toy library available. There are also amazing outings on Wednesdays that you can sign up for. This is an incredible space to meet other caregivers/parents, and a fantastic spot to let your little one explore!
Amanda E., Caregiver
Fantastic team of supportive women at a centre that feels like a girlfriend’s warm inviting family room. These women care and it shows. Excellent Wednesday programming, circle time and crafts, great backyard to play in when it is warm, and a toy library! Also, the best play dough ☺️ and coffee always brewing.
