Child Care Resource and Referral

As a part of our commitment to helping children and families thrive, Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) provides services and support to child care providers and parents throughout Northern BC. We work to enhance the availability and quality of child care services by providing information, support, resources as well as referral services to families and child care providers across our region. Child Care Resource and Referral is operated by the YMCA of Northern BC and funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Our office is located at the YMCA Early Learning Centre at 2020 Massey Drive where families and care givers can stop by for assistance with child care subsidy or use our Lending Library. Visit our full website for office hours, Toy Lending Library Catalogue, event calendar and upcoming workshops.
