Richmond Child Care Resource & Referral Centre

Supporting Quality Child Care

We've moved! Go to  >

The Richmond Child Care Resource & Referral Centre is one of RCRG's most popular programs. The CCRR, as it's known, works to promote safe, nurturing, quality child care, offering a wide range of services for both families and early learning professionals. 

Through its free child care referral service, the CCRR assists parents in finding child care, helping them determine the best arrangement for their family based on location, curriculum, operating hours, and more. The CCRR also runs a variety of free, educational play groups, where parents and children can learn and grow together.

For child care providers, the CCRR offers ongoing guidance and support, along with a diverse schedule of professional development opportunities, which range from short, interactive workshops to in-depth, multi-session courses.

Finally, the CCRR maintains the Richmond Early Years Library, open to parents, students, child care professionals, and community organizations. The Library features Richmond's largest collection of early learning resources, including books, activity boxes, felt stories, loose parts, and more.

In recent years, the CCRR has grown considerably. In fact, the program is now so big that it's outgrown the RCRG website! And so, in 2021, the CCRR moved to a new online home:

The CCRR, of course, remains part of RCRG, but the new site is custom-built to showcase the CCRR's many unique services. 

Whether you're a parent or early learning professional, whether you want to find child care or register for a workshop, whether you’d like to browse the Richmond Early Years Library or sign up for a play group – is your new way to connect to the CCRR.
