History of Marpole-Oakridge Community Association and Community Centre

Few people understand the history of our community centres or the effort it took to establish them.

In the beginning, it was the community associations who started the movement. Along the way, they enlisted the help of the Park Board. So began the partnership between community associations and Park Board.

Seventy years ago, “the seed and initial push came from a handful of local community-minded people who, in 1944, conceived of the idea that became the spark that ignited the community center movement for all of Greater Vancouver.”

And that movement started right here in Marpole.

Here is the history of the Marpole-Oakridge Community Association (MOCA) and the Marpole-Oakridge Community Centre (MOCC) that the association got built. It is the story of all Vancouver community centres and an important part of Vancouver history:
  • A 1957 report on the community centre which includes floor plans.
  • A 1950 narrative of the origins and early history of the community centre.

If we want to sustain and enhance this facility to serve the needs of our growing population, MOCA and MOCC need your input and assistance. For more info go to http://liveablevancouver.com/marpole-oakridge_community_centre_issues/

Marpole-Oakridge Preschool
 

Marpole Preschool 604-257-8180 is recognized in the Early Childcare Education field as a leader and now has limited spots available for parents who want their child to experience play-based learning in a safe, caring environment.

Marpole Preschool provides a play-based program that implements emergent curriculum inspired by Reggio Emilia preschools in Italy. We develop our curriculum by observing what and how children play and by listening closely to their voices. Based on observations, we provide an experience or materials that guides children to further explore their interests and what they want to discover. We then make further observation and provide further experiences, and this cycle goes on to support children's learning.

We believe children are competent, resourceful, creative, and curious!

We support children's individual learning as well as encourage collaborative learning through sharing ideas and working together.
We are looking forward to working with your child and you, the guardians, as a team!
