Child Care Resource and Referral


Helping parents and childcare providers

The Child Care Resource and Referral Program (CCRR) is here to help all parents/guardians and childcare providers in the Corridor.

For parents, we:

  • Organize playgroups – a great way to spend a morning. Playgroups in Squamish and Pemberton take place in local parks when the weather’s good- see our list of summer playgroups. We provide toys, equipment, snacks and activities
  • Connect you to childcare providers
  • Run a lending library with toys, resource boxes, equipment and books
  • Help you access the provincial government’s Child Care Subsidy

For childcare providers, we:

  • Help you in your decision to register as a License Not Required Care Provider (caring for up to two children other than your own) or to go through the licensing process through Vancouver Coastal Health to become a Licensed Family Daycare.
  • Run monthly workshops

Opening hours

This program runs in Squamish and Pemberton. The Squamish office has regular office hours:

  • Mondays 9am – 4pm
  • Tuesdays 12 – 7pm
  • Wednesdays 9am – 4pm
  • Thursdays 1 – 4pm (and we run a playgroup Thursdays from 9.30-11.30)

This program is funded by the Province of British Columbia.

This is just one of our 40 programs and services.
