There are 12 StrongStart BC Early Learning Centres located in elementary schools throughout Burnaby. They are located in schools so 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 BC Centre but the parent/caregiver is required to remain with their child and fully participate in the program.
Burnaby Schools StrongStart BC Centres are open Monday to Friday from 9 am to noon,* when schools are open for instruction. *The StrongStart BC Centre at Morley is open from 8:45 to 11:45 am. Additional closures are posted at each centre.
To ensure high quality programs and safe standards of practice, many of our centres are catchment only and/or limit attendance to 2 or 3 days a week. To avoid overcrowding we ask families to please limit visits as required at the Burnaby Schools StrongStart BC Early Learning Centre that you attend.
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 StrongStart Facilitators are qualified Early Childhood Educators. They 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 are also invited to come and share how they can help support you and your family. Facilitators can connect you to additional community resources as well.
If you would like to register for StrongStart please visit the StrongStart Centre closest to you.
We look forward to meeting you and your child!
