StrongStart program for early learners

StrongStart is a free school-based program that provides play-based early learning opportunities for children (0 to 5 years old) and their parents or caregivers.

Our full-time StrongStart programs run five days a week for three hours a day at the following locations: District Education Support Centre (Salmon Arm), South Broadview Elementary (Salmon Arm), MV Beattie Elementary (Enderby), Highland Park Elementary (Armstrong), and Parkview Elementary (Sicamous). Families are welcome to drop in for all or just part of the program on any day the program is running.

There are also part-time programs at Carlin, Falkland and North Shuswap. “We are so fortunate to have such an awesome team of Early Childhood Educators!” comments Early Learning Co-ordinator Jennifer Findlay.
