Great Things Going On!

Here you will find things that really excite me about the world-some things are close by, some are further flung!

CCRR, Child Care Resource and Referral

Now if you have never heard of the CCRR's in British Columbia or you've never been to see the lovely people who operate your local one-YOU MUST GO! The CCRR is the place you can go as a parent or a daycare/preschool professional and find and borrow toys, books, many different types of resources, car-seats, high chairs, etc. and sometimes just a friendly face to say hello to! If you need to find a daycare in your area the CCRR has a running list of facilities and all the info about them-their safety ratings, their availabilities, etc. They are really the perfect middleman between daycares/preschools and families. They also offer special event nights and many different playdates and get-togethers for everyone.

I am in the process of trying to find the equivalent for the provinces outside of B.C. and if there is such an organization that operates throughout the United States. If you have any info about this would you mind letting me know? Just go to my CONTACT ME page please that would be great!! Then I can spread the word so everyone can experience the awesomeness that is the CCRR!
