Richmond residents can now easily locate all licensed child care programs in the city with two online mapping tools developed by the City of Richmond.
“These new mapping tools can be used by parents to search for local licensed child care options. They can also be used by child care providers to help promote their current programs or research the need for program expansion,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.
There are two mapping tools available on the City of Richmond’s website.
The Richmond Child Care Locator, developed with assistance from Vancouver Coastal Health, is an easy-to-use map that displays all licensed child care programs in Richmond, along with related contact information. The locator can be used on a smart phone, tablet or desktop computer.
The Richmond Interactive Map allows users to search a geographic map system for various informational layers including child care, zoning, parks, schools and community centres. The mapping tool is designed to help users gain a better understanding of the neighbourhoods where each child care program is located.
