StrongStart is a free drop-in program offered to parents and caregivers with children ages zero to five years old. StrongStart Centres emphasize learning through play, language and positive social interactions.
StrongStart provides a rich learning environment, designed for early learning development. Qualified early childhood educators lead learning activities where children find opportunities to make friends and interact with others of similar ages. The overall learning experience is shared as parents and caregivers attend with their children and are encouraged to get involved in activities like telling stories, playing games and serving healthy snacks. English as a first language is not necessary to attend a StrongStart drop-in program.
There are 19 StrongStart programs in elementary schools in Vancouver. Please click on the link below for more information.
