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.


Saanich School District StrongStart Centres will be open October 4.
