StrongStart BC is a free, drop-in early learning program for children aged 0-5 accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

At our StrongStart Centre, a School District qualified early childhood educator facilitates family literacy activities in a play-based learning environment. Our StrongStart facilitator leads learning activities to support each child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Learning activities including stories, music, dramatic play, construction, and art help children get ready for success in kindergarten.

Parents and caregivers attending StrongStart BC centres can expect to participate in organized sessions such as: play activities, serving a healthy snack, circle time, and gross motor physical experiences.

Parents and caregivers are likely to discover new ways to support their children’s learning at home, and may make valuable connections with others attending the centre.
