PacificCARE’s Child Care Resource and Referral Program has a new home in Campbell River, creating easier public access to its services.
The non-profit regional organization moved into the Robron Centre in early July. Before the move, the Campbell River child care consultant for PacificCARE, Rhonda Teramura, serviced the North Island from her home office.
“This will provide parents and child care providers much easier access to child care referral services, subsidy information, and the support of their local consultant in Campbell River,” explained PacificCARE executive director Dianne Magor in a news release.
Besides assisting parents and caregivers with child care subsidy information, and giving referrals and support to parents, PacificCARE provides resources to licensed child care providers, and provides training and workshops to all child care providers.
“With over two decades assisting parents and child care providers, we feel very excited and fortunate for this opportunity to move forward and share our services and experience with the Campbell River and North Island communities,” added Magor.
