About StrongStart

StrongStart BC is a preschool program designed for parents, guardians, or caregivers to participate with their young child (aged birth to five) in one-on-one, play-based early learning activities - including stories, music and art. At no cost to families, this early learning drop-in program helps prepare children for success in Kindergarten.

The North Vancouver School District is very proud of the StrongStart program we provide in seven of our elementary schools. Children and their parents or caregivers in our community can access high quality early learning environments and activities offered in the StrongStart centres located at Norgate, Westview, Montroyal, Eastview, Boundary, Lynnmour, and Seymour Heights Elementary Schools.

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 forms for all StrongStart centres are to be given directly to the Strongstart facilitators, in person at your first drop-in visit. Please do not send forms electronically to the facilitators or to our Central Registration department.

Registration form can be found HERE.

Please Note: If your child(ren) has been previously registered, please submit the re-registration form for this school year. Citizenship and Proof-of-Residency documents are not required with the submission. 

The StrongStart Guidelines are available here.
