Our History

Originally named The Pacific Child and Family Enrichment Society, PacificCARE Family Enrichment Society was formed by a group of child care professionals that worked together both formally and informally over the course of 15 years.

In 1989, the group banded together to create what is now a non-profit society that applies programs in support of child care providers, families and communities across Central and Northern Vancouver Island. In their belief of providing support through education and access to information and resources they began working with the Child Care Resource and Referral Program (CCRR), our primary program to date.


The PacificCARE Family Enrichment Society membership provides you with access to all of our services including preferred member only pricing on events and workshops and access to our unique child care insurance referral program in partnership with Coastal Community Insurance and Magenta Insurance.
