About PacificCARE Family Enrichment Society (CCRR) Child Care Resource & Referral
Thriving Children & Enriched Families
To enrich children and families by providing quality programs, services and resources.
Originally named The Pacific Child and Family Enrichment Society, PacificCARE Family Enrichment Society was founded in 1989 by child care professionals who had collaborated for 15 years. This nonprofit organization operates primarily through the Child Care Resource and Referral Program (CCRR), funded by The Ministry of Education and Child Care, aimed at improving child care accessibility and quality in Central and Northern Vancouver Island.
The CCRR program serves over 40 communities in British Columbia, offering families access to licensed child care and providing information, resources, and referrals. PacificCARE’s CCRR services cover Vancouver Island from Ladysmith to Port Hardy on the West Coast to Powell River on the East Coast, with offices in multiple locations and outreach to more than 30 communities.
