StrongStart BC (Pre-K)

COVID-19 Update: Important Message to Families 

StrongStart BC is a free drop-in early learning program for all preschool-aged children.   Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver while attending the program.

These wonderful programs are conducted by qualified early childhood educators who lead a variety of learning activities designed to help children get ready for success in kindergarten.  Parents and caregivers attending a StrongStart BC center can expect organized sessions like story time, play activities, and a healthy snack.

Come to one of our six StrongStart programs to discover new ways to support your child’s learning, to make connections with other parents and caregivers who attend, and to gain important information about additional services and resources in our community.
