STRONGSTART BC EARLY LEARNING CENTRES
There are 12 StrongStart Centres located in elementary schools throughout Burnaby. They are located in a school so that you and your child (ages 0-5 years) become part of the school community even before your child enters kindergarten.
There is no cost to attend a StrongStart Centre and it is offered as a drop-in program.
Burnaby’s StrongStart Centres are open Monday to Friday from 9am to Noon* when schools are open for instruction. Check at your centre for any additional closures. *Please note: The StrongStart Centre at Morley Elementary is open from 8:45 to 11:45am.
WHAT IS A STRONGSTART CENTRE?
StrongStart Centres provide parents and caregivers an opportunity to share in their child’s early learning experiences and learn and grow together through PLAY.
The Centre’s facilitators are qualified Early Childhood Educators. They will provide carefully selected materials and activities that promote the development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and early literacy skills necessary for lifelong learning.
Community partners such as the Burnaby Public Library, Information Children, and Fraser Health Dental Screening might also be invited to come and share how they can help support you and your family. Facilitators can also connect you to additional community resources.
