StrongStart BC Early Learning Centres provide school-based, early learning services for adults and their young children (aged birth to five) at no cost to families. Both children and adults can benefit from StrongStart BC early learning programs – children have access to high-quality learning environments and benefit from social interactions while the adults who accompany them learn new ways to support learning, both at the program and at home. This FREE program is funded by the Ministry of Education (click on the link below).
Please see the attached information from our School District or call our school if you are interested in speaking with our StrongStart Facilitator, Mrs. Denise Paley (or you can like her Facebook page at the right to stay in touch).
