Beginning in June the Tri-Cities CCRR office will be open every Wednesday until 8:00 pm and will increase their Saturday hours to 8:30 am-3:00 pm. The Burnaby/New Westminster CCRR office will be open every Thursday until 8:00 pm and will be open the second and fourth Saturday of every month from 8:30 am-3:00 pm.

To better serve the families and child care professionals in our communities the increased hours will make it easier for you to access our services. Whether it’s for help with the Affordable Child Care Benefit application, access to child care referrals, community resources, or to borrow from our beautiful toy lending library – we’re open more for you!

You’ve all heard of ‘painting parties’, well, we have a Project Lab that’s just as much fun and available at a low cost of $5. Our lab is full of the tools and supplies that you and your peers can use to create felt stories and more. Now that we’re open every Wednesday night until 8:00 pm, plan to visit the Tri-Cities Project Lab for an evening of creative fun and networking.


Summer is right around the corner and so is a whole new group of interactive, informative and engaging professional development workshops!

This summer learn and grow with peers who share your passion, dedication and commitment to providing children with quality care.
