Program without Walls
Program without Walls (PWW) is a coalition of six agencies working together to support the health and development of children aged birth to 6 years in the former City of York. As the sponsoring agency, Macaulay Child Development Centre oversees the coordination and administration of PWW’s programs and services.
Programs offered by PWW are funded through the Community Action Program for Children (CAPC) under The Public Health Agency of Canada. PWW programs are offered at different locations in a variety of languages to serve the diverse families in the community.
PWW Programs include:
- Child development
- Parent relief
- Parent education and support
- Family home visiting
- Creative Expressions
