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. At no cost to families, this early learning program helps prepare children for success in Kindergarten. In addition, we offer support, information, resources and a chance to meet other parents. The programs follow the school year and are closed during school holidays. View the School District 48 School Calendar.
