Welcome to the West Kootenay CCRR

We are a program of Kootenay Kids Society

and funded by the Ministry of Children and Families

The Child Care Resource and Referral Program provides a wide range of services to parents, child care providers and communities with the vital information and resources necessary for happy and healthy children. Childcare providers are supported in the delivery of high quality child care through the provision of information, resources, toy and equipment lending, networking and training opportunities. For parents searching for access to high quality child care services the experienced Child Care Resource and Referral staff can provide information and referrals to programs that best meet their family’s needs.
