Child Care Resource & Referral Centre
Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) centres make it easier for families to find and access responsive, inclusive, quality, licensed and registered child care by providing information, support, resources and referral services to parents and child care providers across the province.
The Ministry of Children and Family Development provides funding to CCRRs, which work in partnership with government to improve the accessibility, affordability, and quality of child care in all B.C. communities.
The Child Care Resource and Referral Program of British Columbia is committed to working in partnership with community and government to enhance the availability and accessibility of a range of flexible, responsive and inclusive quality child care options and services that support the needs of children, families and child care providers.
