The Richmond Child Care Resource & Referral Centre, better known as the CCRR, is a valuable resource for parents and child care providers alike.
For parents, the CCRR offers a free child care referral service, as well as a wide selection of resources on choosing quality child care. CCRR staff can also provide information on the Affordable Child Care Benefit.
But it's not just information and resources; it's activities. Throughout the year, the CCRR runs a number of popular drop-in programs, like Together Time and Junior Detectives, that parents can attend with their children.
For child care providers, the CCRR regularly hosts professional development workshops, in addition to several longer courses, such as First Aid and a Family Child Care Training Course. Child care providers can also contact the CCRR at any time if they require support.
And whether you're a parent, child care provider, or ECE student, you're sure to be amazed by the Richmond Early Years Library.
The Richmond Early Years Library is an extensive library featuring materials for children ages 0-12, including children’s books, activity boxes, CD’s, puzzles, and many curriculum materials for supporting programs at a child care centre. It also features a loose parts section as well as wooden/natural resources section for your borrowing.
