It really does take a village to raise a child! Our Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) program helps parents and child care providers alike get the support needed to help raise healthy, happy kids.

We are pleased to offer various types of support for families searching for child care including:

  • Child care referrals based on your family’s individual needs from our database of licensed family or group child care, or registered licence not required (RLNR) family child care providers
  • Information and assistance regarding the provincial Child Care Subsidy
  • Tips on how to choose and evaluate child care programs
  • An informative and fun blog that includes parent articles, educational opportunities and family events
  • Information about local community resources and programs, such as family drop-ins, public health nurses, early intervention programs and much more

CCRR programs serve over 170 communities in BC, and the YMCA of Greater Vancouver is pleased to support families looking for care in the communities of Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Anmore and Belcarra. For support finding child care in other communities, please visit the Provincial CCRR website and contact your local CCRR.
