Childcare Resource & Referral

Your Community’s BEST source of child care information and resources

Welcome to Abbotsford Child Care Resource and Referral Program

We are an organization that links families and child care providers in the community of Abbotsford by offering free consultation, support, access to professional help, and referral services to parents seeking child care.

Child care providers are supported through workshops and information, outreach, consultations, newsletters, referrals, resource & equipment lending library, group social activities, networking and learning opportunities.

Parents are supported through referral information, assisting with subsidy applications and faxing the applications to the subsidy office. All types of child care choices are given to parents. Also available to parents are consultations, group social activities and learning opportunities.

We work with the community and strive for quality inclusive day care services that meet the needs of local families and to promote the healthy development of children.
