About Inkster Parent Child Coalition (IPCC):

IPCC offers a variety of programs and resources to support families in the Inkster community. We have a strong focus on the early years because we know that early experiences matter – The first five years of a child’s life are the biggest preparation for future successes!

We base our programming on the most recent Early Development Instrument (EDI) results. The data which make up the EDI results is collected with the help of Inkster kindergarten teachers and financial supported by Healthy Child Manitoba. The EDI results show us how ready kids are for school and how we can best invest our time and resources to support the development or the young ones in our community.

We are currently cancelling in-person programs to keep everyone safe. We are working our best to continue moving forward and providing resources that are COVID safe such as Playcation, and Mini Chefs To-Go. Please check our social media, or contact Brenna or Roxanne for the most up-to-date information on programming.
