North Vancouver StrongStart Centres

StrongStart BC is a free, drop-in, play-based early learning program for preschool‑aged children accompanied by a parent or caregiver.  There are seven StrongStart locations in the North Vancouver School District welcoming our youngest learners. 

To help children get ready for success in kindergarten, qualified early childhood educators lead and demonstrate learning activities, story time, music and art.

Parents and caregivers will learn how they can help support their children's learning, language development, skills, knowledge, and attitudes for success in school.

The StrongStart Facilitators prepare the snacks for children at the Centres to ensure compliance with food safety standards. StrongStart is a "nut-aware" program.

Registration intake for StrongStart is on-going; parents/caregivers can register a child during their first visit to a StrongStart Centre.  The Registration / Re-Registration forms are available here
 
The StrongStart Guidelines are available here.
