Early Learning Foundations (ELF)

Preschools and Childcare Programs

The North Vancouver School District’s Early Learning Foundations (ELF) Program is a well-established partnership between the school district and local early learning (preschool and childcare) providers.

Consistent with the Ministry of Education’s on-going expansion of early learning programs in schools, including  StrongStart and Ready, Set, Learn, the Early Learning Foundations program is designed to provide quality early learning opportunities for children in our community.

ELF programs are located on site or in close proximity to North Vancouver schools and support early childhood learning and address the issue of school readiness by increasing the connection between preschool and elementary school educators.
