StrongStart BC is a free early learning program for all children aged 0 to 5.
StrongStart Facilitators are ECE-trained school district employees.
We are excited to welcome families to our six centres. Our sessions will be offered through our booking app.
The StrongStart educators will lead a variety of learning activities designed to support children on their learning path before they enter school. Parents and caregivers attending a StrongStart BC Centre will enjoy play activities, circle time and a snack!
- Families need to book a time to attend a StrongStart program. Use the booking app to reserve a time to visit. Each family can book one session per week. You will be able to book up to two weeks in advance. Our booking app is available starting September 6th.
- Everyone (children and adults) attending the StrongStart program needs to complete a Daily Health Assessment BEFORE they arrive at the StrongStart Centre.
- Masks for adults are required, and families are encouraged to bring their own masks.
- Adults and children are encouraged to respect personal space for other adults and children in the program.
Families who are accessing in-person programming need to register their child using our online registration form. To register, you will need to upload a photo of proof of your child’s age (e.g. birth certificate, passport, landed immigrant authorization, or INAC status card). Please complete a separate registration form for each child under 5 years of age.
Come to one of our six StrongStart programs to make connections with other parents and caregivers and to discover new ways to support your child’s learning.
