The Sunshine Coast Child Care Resource and Referral Program (CCRR) is a Ministry of Children and Family Development funded program, operated by SCCSS, and provides services from Port Mellon to Earl’s Cove.
Families can get information on choosing quality child care, referrals to child care that best suits their needs, assistance with child care subsidy applications, workshops and access to a lending library of toys, books and parenting information.
Services to child care providers include referrals to families, information, consultation services, professional development and networking opportunities, and a lending library of toys and resources.
In addition, the CCRR has a selection of art supplies for sale and offers inexpensive, short-term equipment rentals such as car seats, high chairs and strollers to members and non-members.
The CCRR program also works in partnership with the community to enhance availability and accessibility of quality child care spaces that support the needs of children, families and the Sunshine Coast communities.
Stop by our child friendly office — there is a play area for the children — and find out how the Child Care Resource and Referral Program can support you.
