forms of address, child to adult woman

What would a small child address an adult woman as in Canada (specifically, Vancouver)? Where I come from, friends-of-parents are generally called Miss (as in, Miss Catherine -- used for married women, too), or Aunty (Aunty Catherine). Would a child in these modern times be encouraged to use an adult's first name, or last name (Mrs Jones)? Thank you!
