Early Education

Strong Start

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 TNRD Public Library, Public Health, and 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.

Monday to Friday, there are FREE drop-in programs available at four local schools and three rural schools in our District. These programs are parent-participation preschool programs for children from birth to 5 years old. Lots of fun, crafts, snacks, stories, and games.
