StrongStart is a FREE early learning drop-in program for children birth to 5 years of age. Parents and/or caregivers attend this fully funded Ministry of Education program with their children. As Early Childhood Educators, the StrongStart facilitator provides a rich play-based environment full of activities that will promote opportunities where your child/children can make new friends, explore new activities and learn skills that will assist them in the preparation and successful transition to kindergarten. As adults, you are encouraged to get involved in the learning activities – stories, music, art and games. Join a StrongStart where you can discover new ways to support your child’s learning, get information about community resources and make valuable connections with others attending the program.

StrongStart BC programs provide rich learning environments designed for early learning development – language, physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Qualified early childhood educators lead learning activities where children find opportunities to make friends and interact with others of similar ages.

The overall learning experience is shared as parents and caregivers attend with their children and are encouraged to get involved in activities like telling stories, playing games and serving healthy snacks. Join us to learn new ways to support your children’s learning, get information about community programs and services and make valuable connections with others attending the program.
