What is a StrongStart Centre?

A program that provides opportunities for early learning through play in an environment carefully designed to support exploration, discovery, and language.

A program that recognizes the importance of close parent and caregiver relationships in a child's life and offers support for adults in their role, and the opportunity to build community connections.

A program that recognizes children as natural learners and offers opportunities for physical, social, intellectual and emotional learning through active participation of parents and caregivers and the early childhood educator.
