Meet the new faces at Manor Park Community Council
A new season brings new people in familiar roles at Manor Park Community Council (MPCC).
See below for profiles and introductory messages from the new supervisors at Manor Park Community Council (MPCC).
Manor Park Child Care Centre Supervisor Julie Irwin, Registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE)
As the new supervisor of Manor Park Child Care Centre, I am thrilled to be a part of MPCC’s family and to be working in collaboration with an incredible group of educators! I joined the team eager to help establish the new centre and to share my longstanding passion for childcare with my teammates. I can already feel the spirit of collaboration and community between the staff, families and children. I am beyond excited to begin this journey and to welcome new families into a safe, nurturing, and fun-filled environment!
Manor Park Child Care Centre offers toddler and pre-school programs for children aged 18 months to 5 years old. Some spaces are still available! If you wish to visit the centre or to register your child, please send an e-mail.
MPCC Coordinator, Administration and Communications Claudia Leblond
I am thrilled to introduce myself! As a recent graduate of the University of Ottawa with a degree in public relations, I hope to bring an enthusiastic spirit and a wealth of knowledge to the team as administration and communications coordinator.
Before coming to Manor Park Community Council, I was a communication officer and event planner. Both positions allowed me to develop communication and administrative skills to excel in this new adventure.
In my spare time, I love playing volleyball (indoor and beach–I love them both!) and travelling. Fun fact, I have already visited four countries this year!
I look forward to meeting all of you. If you have any inquiries, I’m your person to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before-and-After-school in Manor Park Supervisor Amy Mombourquette, Registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE)
This summer we had an absolute blast offering licensed child care services full-time during July and August. Children had the opportunity to learn new skills through games, cause and effect, and how to respect others and their space.
Now that September has arrived, Before-and-After-School in Manor Park has re-opened providing licensed care on school days in the Manor Park Public School.
We have a wonderful team of educators who are eager to get back and join your children in learning and growing through daily experiences. We welcome back families from last year, as well as the new families that have joined us in Before-and-After-School care.
Spaces are still available in our school age program. If you need child care for before and/or after school for your 6 to 12-year-old(s), send us an email. We would love to chat about your child(ren) joining our MPCC Family.
MPCC Recreation Supervisor Melanie Proulx
I am the new recreation supervisor. I was born and raised here in Ottawa but moved to St. Catherines for my undergraduate degree where I studied sport management at Brock University. I am currently in the process of completing my master’s in human kinetics, specialization in sport management at the University of Ottawa.
Fun fact about me: I was both a camper and soccer superstar here at Manor Park back in the day. Since 2018, when I was placed at Summer Day Camps in Manor Park by the Focus on Youth program, everything has been uphill since then. I went on to work four more summers as camp counsellor and coached the Jr. NBA program last fall.
In my spare time, I enjoy going to most sporting events; however, my favourite will always be the Ottawa 67’s games. I am so excited to get the ball rolling (literally) and get to know the amazing children and families in this community.
