WCCRC Administration & Management for Child Care Knowledge Base

The WCCRC Knowledge Base is a comprehensive online information database for ECE leaders, with detailed guidance on all areas of child care leadership.

Formerly known as the Westcoast INFORM Guide, the WCCRC Knowledge Base has been completely revised to reflect current practices and learnings in inclusiveness, Truth & Reconciliation, the BC Early Learning Framework, and inquiry-based approaches. A valuable tool for childcare professionals, it includes comprehensive lists of online resources, as well as tools and forms you can use in your own practice.

Note: Our 40-hour instructor-led course and 12-hour Self Guided Course both include a 3-month subscription to the WCCRC Knowledge Base.
