Referral Service

As a child care provider in our community, your child care setting can be listed for referrals.

Child Care Resource and Referral maintains a database of licensed and registered license-not-required child care providers in Abbotsford.

Referrals are given based on the criteria provided by the parent; i.e. location, setting type, child's age, availability and cost.

It is extremely important that you contact our program whenever you have any changes to your child care program such as vacancies or hours, as this allows us to give current and accurate referrals to parents seeking child care.
