MCCA is a community of friends where the values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility are nurtured. Our programs are designed to enrich and compliment each child’s school day experience. We strive to create an environment which supports social/emotional learning and the individual needs of children. Program components and curriculum are framed by the National AfterSchool Association Standards for Quality School-Age Programs and the Oregon ASK Afterschool Program Quality Standards.
MCCA is conveniently located at Markham Elementary School. MCCA was chartered as a nonprofit member association in 1991, and parents of children attending MCCA are members of our association. Parent participation is encouraged and considered a valuable asset to our program.
MCCA is licensed by the Oregon Department of Education, Office of Child Care and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. MCCA program staff complete criminal background checks and are certified in First Aid/CPR and Recognizing & Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect. All program staff complete a minimum of 15 clock hours of professional development training annually and are enrolled in the Oregon Registry, a voluntary statewide professional development system in the field of Childhood Care and Education.
