Why should we register?

  1. By going through the registration process, your child is officially entered into the StrongStart BC database so that attendance can be recorded. By having as many children as possible registered, the Ministry of Education develops an accurate picture of how many children are attending the StrongStart BC program.
  2. Twice a year, the Ministry of Education extracts attendance numbers from each StrongStart BC centre. They are only interested in collecting numbers, not personal information regarding your child.
  3. The Ministry of Education will assign your child a Personal Education Number (PEN#). This number follows the child throughout their education in British Columbia.

Additional Information

  1. If the child is a Canadian citizen, but the Birth Certificate is from another country, we need a copy of the Citizenship papers.
  2. If the family is in Canada on a Work Permit, we need a copy of it attached to the registration.
  3. If the child is a Permanent Resident, then we need a copy of both sides of the Permanent Resident card.
Please bring the original documents. We will take photocopies of these documents and return them to you.
