We would love for you to join us!

StrongStart BC programs provide rich learning environments designed for early learning development – language, physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Qualified early childhood educators lead learning activities where children find opportunities to make friends and interact with others of similar ages.

Participate with your young child (aged birth to five) in 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.


To register for Strong Start you will complete a registration form on your first day.   Please bring your child(ren)'s:

  • Any type of vital statistics document, such as a birth certificate
  • Identification issued by Immigration Canada (e.g. passport, visa, permanent resident card)
  • An Aboriginal Status card

Your child’s initial registration into a StrongStart BC program will also mark the beginning of their educational record in B.C. and they will receive a Personal Education Number (PEN).

If you have any questions we would love to hear from you:
