StrongStart

Where parents and children have fun together!

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.

Participate with your young child (aged birth to five) in play-based early learning activities – including stories, music, and art. StrongStart is a free drop-in program that helps prepare children for success in kindergarten. In addition, we offer support, information, resources, and a chance to meet other parents.

The StrongStart program follows the School District 48 School Calendar (open when schools are open and closed when schools are closed).
