Child Care Resource and Referral
Helping parents and childcare providers
The Child Care Resource and Referral Program 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. We provide toys, equipment, snacks and activities
- Have a database to connect you with 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
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)
- The first Saturday of the month (except for in September), 9am – 12pm
This program is funded by the Province of British Columbia.
This is just one of our 40 programs and services.
