Welcome to Coquitlam River StrongStart:
Each StrongStart Centre in the Coquitlam School District has qualified Early Childhood Educators facilitating family literacy activities in a play-based learning environment supported by Parent Participation.
StrongStart Facilitators lead learning activities to support each child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Learning activities including stories, music, dramatic play, construction, and art to help in a successful transition into Kindergarten.
StrongStart is a Parent/Caregiver participation program. This is where you and your child or the child that is in your care move throughout the centre experiencing many activities and learning centers. It is important that you are participating and talking with your child during their time here. You will be supporting them through activities, transitions and circle times.
Children are always observing, listening and learning from the people around them. You will find that with new experiences and activities you have learned at the centre; you will be able to take these ideas and experiences home and re-create them in your own home as well. We hope that your experiences with your child at StrongStart are full of rich learning experiences.
Our centre has a strict "No Cellphone Policy" If you must have your cellphone at the centre please turn it to silent. If you must use your cellphone during the session we ask that you do so outside of the building. If you must leave the room at any time your child must accompany you, children are not to be left unattended for their safety.
Many families have meaningful experiences and see many milestones reached during their time at StrongStart, if you witness this happening honor the moment with praise and encouragement ....
See you there!
