Vancouver Early Years Refugee Program (EYRP) is for refugee parents and their young children (0-5 years). It is offered at Collingwood Neighbourhood School and Moberly Elementary School. 

StrongStart Refugee Program

In collaboration with PIRS (Pacific Immigrant Resources Society), VSB is having a free StrongStart Refugee Program. It will provide an environment for young children (0-5 years) to learn through play and develop language, social, motor skills to be ready for school. Parents will have the opportunity to meet and connect with other parents, to learn about parenting in Canada and get more information and support. It is a program for families with current or previous refugee experience.
