Since 2002, the Maison de la famille de Mirabel has had the mission of supporting the families of Mirabel and the surrounding area in every possible way.
Parents of children from 0 to 18 years old are supported in their various needs and we also offer activities for children between 0 and 12 years old.
We offer child only activities, parents only activities, or child-parents together. We want to increase the skills of the family in its development.
By supporting families in our various services, such as drop-in daycare, respite strollers, home accompaniments by our worker, offering financial, food and material assistance, we want to help families who are going through a bad time.

About Plaisir de découvrir activity: “Children are always excited to discover the theme of the week. Lots of original activities that you don’t necessarily take the time to do at home with the kids. Taking the time to spend time with our children while allowing them to socialize with other children and us to socialize with other parents.”
