Our History

During the 1980’s and early 90’s, Ottawa was home to two home child care provider groups: the Ottawa-Carleton In-Home Child Care Providers Association (CCPA) and the Independent Child Caregivers Association (ICCA). Driven to act as a unified voice for home child care providers, enhance cost efficiency, and offer a wider range of programs and services, the two organizations amalgamated in 1998 to become the Child Care Providers Resource Network you know today.

We are proud to be part of the Cross-Sectoral Early Years and Child Care Advisory facilitated by the Ministry of Education, and recognize the contributions of the many hands, volunteers, and staff who have worked diligently to support quality home child care for over 30 years.
